“I didn’t come here to be partisan. I didn’t come here to be bipartisan. I came here, as did my colleagues, to be nonpartisan, to work for the American people, to do what is in their interest. -Nancy Pelosi

Maned, you don't understand.

Nonpartisan means implementing change, any change, for the sake of change.  After all, that's why Congress exists and why we need them in session all the time, actively earning their keep.  They are supposed to make new laws, spend new money and otherwise improve our lives.  Hence, nonpartisan.

Bi-partisan means slowing that process down by working with those who want government to do nothing, or as little as possible.

Partisan means you argue with those who want government to do nothing or as little as possible, attempting to convince or coerce them to your point of view... the true purpose of a Congressman being to perpetually author new legislation.
"But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist."
--Lysander Spooner

I reject your authoritah!

Non-partisan means "Do what I say (or else)."  Nothing new there.

What a terrible thing to do to an innocent, unsuspecting glove!

Maned,

I find I agree with you a lot, but as to the quote you provided being the MOST unbelieveable thing Pelosi has ever said, I submit this in rebuttal:

Quote
I, Nancy Pelosi, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it. - Mark Twain
