Obama: Pelosi was 'one of the best' Speakers, will be back in 2013

Yankee Traveler 2011/10/31 09:03:36

President Obama on Saturday said Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was a
great House Speaker and that she will get that job back after the 2012

"I am biased, but I think Nancy was one of the best
Speakers of the House this country ever had," Obama said after Pelosi
had introduced him at the National Italian American Foundation gala.

"She was no doubt the best Italian American Speaker of the House we
ever had. And I believe that she will be the best Speaker of the House
again in 2013."

Pelosi, the veteran lawmaker from San Francisco, was the House's 60th Speaker and the first woman to hold that position.

the minority leader, Pelosi handed the gavel to John Boehner (R-Ohio)
after Republicans trounced Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections.

the past, conservative campaigns have tried to paint Pelosi -- and her
leadership role in the Democratic Party -- as the threatening face of
the left.

As Republicans try to take the White House from Obama in
2012 and keep their majority in the House, they will likely pounce on
the president's desire to have Pelosi back in power in Congress.

    Can't see how either one of them is going to be back. Americans are waking up too fast for them to change their stripes again.

    Slithering snakes.

    Is he going to use one of his executive orders to un-constitutionally make that happen?

    ... and then he woke up from his beautiful dream and realized that he was not the best President the US has ever had and Ms. Peosi was not the best speaker the US has ever had.

    America could not SURVIVE ANOTHER TERM BY HER.

    We are too busy CLEANING UP THE MESS SHE LEFT.

    Things like NO BUDGETS PASSED FOR the last few years.

    Largest deficis EVER.

    Obama's statement reflects just how out of touch he is with the majority of Americans about this woman. The worse statement made by anyone during this regime was made by her, "We will have to pass the bill so we can you can see what is in it."
