Nanny Pelosi's Final Lie as Madame Speaker

Ok, lie is a little harsh; maybe delusional is a better word. But, whatever word you may choose to describe this it would have to have a negative connotation to it. I have to wonder if she really believes this stuff.

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.

Right Nation has an interesting graph to illustrate this point.

I'm just trying to figure out what kind of lying to call it. Felony lying? Multi-dimensional lying? Felony Homicidal lying? Lying so hard thousands of birds fell out of the sky and hundreds of thousands of fish died lying?
