Glenn Beck: Nancy Pelosi is an idiot

GLENN: I’ve got to play the Nancy Pelosi audio here and she’s just giving a press conference about how bad the situation is and how much of a rush that we are in now to get this stimulus package passed. Could we please pay this audio from Nancy Pelosi. It’s going to change.

PELOSI: The package is going too fast and maybe it won’t be ready by the President’s Day recess.

PELOSI: Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.

GLENN: Whoa, wait a minute. Could you play that again, please? Every month that we don’t have an economic stimulus package, what happens?

PELOSI: Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.

GLENN: 500 million Americans lose their job every single month we don’t have an economic stimulus package.

STU: Now Glenn, if I’m remembering correctly, the entire U.S. workforce is about 140 million people. So we’re talking about in one month from now, we’re talking about just in one month, 30 days.

GLENN: Right.

STU: There will be negative 360 million workers in America.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

STU: And that’s much worse than the Great Depression. I’m not a historian. I know Ben Bernanke has studied those things but that’s more than 25% unemployment.

GLENN: If you are lucky, if you have your job today, count your lucky stars. Be the best employee that you can be but know if they don’t have this passed by the end of this month, everyone in America, including your children’s children’s children, will have lost their jobs.

STU: To put this into perspective, Glenn, and this is what the media won’t tell you.

GLENN: This is what the media is not telling you. They are not telling you about the 500 million jobs that are being lost just this month.

STU: Right. By the end of the year if you took everybody in the world.

GLENN: Everybody in the world.

STU: All in America.

GLENN: All in America.

STU: And employed all of them.

GLENN: All of them.

STU: All six trillion people (laughing)


STU: Would lose their jobs by the end of this year.

GLENN: What — where is the New York Times exposing that by the end of the year, all six billion people on the planet will be unemployed if we don’t have a stimulus package?

STU: We did hear that audio right, Dan. That was — can you play that again?

PELOSI: Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.

GLENN: Man, I didn’t realize that. Wow. A billion people are going to lose their jobs by the end of next month.

STU: I mean, if you just to the math out, Glenn, you are talking about by Valentine’s Day, 250 million people, almost the entire population of this country is going to lose their job in this country.

GLENN: Let me ask you this. By Valentine’s Day — Stu, do me a favor.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Let’s say we don’t pass this stimulus package.

STU: Well, you can’t. 500 million people are going to lose their job!

GLENN: I understand, I understand! If we don’t pass this stimulus package by 2011, how many jobs will be lost?

STU: Glenn —

GLENN: How many — I understand!

STU: You can’t do that.

GLENN: There will be people on other planets that will lose their jobs because the United States congress, those damn Republicans, stood in the way.

STU: Glenn, right now we’re looking at 17.5 trillion people will lose their jobs by the end of 2011. (laughing)

GLENN: Okay, now look, here’s the thing. She obviously meant that 500,000 people lose.

STU: You are saying that’s obvious? You were going to say that that’s obvious?

GLENN: I mean, what else is —

STU: I don’t know what else.

GLENN: Come on, everything else is ridiculous.

STU: You are saying 500 million people a month losing their job is ridiculous. You don’t know this economic crisis. You are downplaying it, you are in the media. You have money invested.

GLENN: Let me just say that if they pass this economic stimulus package and in March, in March if anybody loses their job, why did we do it? Because every second, every minute, every hour, every month that goes by without the stimulus package, 500 — I claim she means thousand but she said 500 million Americans lose their job, which would imply — right? Which would imply that we have no time to lose here.

STU: Glenn, actually there is no time to lose. Every second that passes by.

GLENN: He’s counting, too.

STU: 11,574 people lose their job, 11,000 people per second.

GLENN: Every second. How many children are starved to death?

STU: 696,000 people per minute.

GLENN: How many degrees Celsius is that, if it continues on this trend? Let me ask you this: How many people will be unemployed if we don’t pass this stimulus package by the time the IPCC says we will all drown in a fiery flood?

STU: That’s already happened. So we’re okay on that one.

GLENN: All right, good. Jeez.

    The abiding question in my mind is:  How in &%$# did someone that says such stupid things get to be the minority HEAD of the House of Representatives anyway?  Don’t they see that she is an embarrassment to them?  Are they as stupid as she is?  This is scary that such idiots can be our country’s leaders!!!  Does she realize that 500 million is greater than the entire U.S. population?  With such people in Congress, it is no wonder the U.S. budget is so screwed up.  What scares me even more is the intelligence level of the people voting people like her into office time and time again!  I need to move to another country.
