Today’s George M. Cohen “Always leave them laughing when you say goodbye” award goes to ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

From Fox Nation:

At her final press conference as House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, “Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go.”

The numbers tell a different story.

When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi’s Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 – a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi’s four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010.

And they’re saying Boehner has an emotional imbalance?

I’m not as enlightened and brilliant as Nancy, but if the Democrats in fact paid-as-they-went, shouldn’t the line on this graph have a little better horizontal hold?

Nancy’s whoppers are part of the reason that, as of last night, Speaker.Gov no longer has her picture on it.

In other political news, today’s New York Post is applying some attire pressure on the White House:
