Pelosi’s Proudest Moment as Speaker: Ramming Through That Bill That Helped Get Her Party’s Ass Kicked Last Month
Filed Under Politics | 12 Comments
This is a little like Joe Hazelwood saying the proudest moment of his tanker captain career was when he had the honor of covering the Prince William Sound with oil, and that the harbor seals and clams were just too stupid to know what a favor he did for them.
â€œEvery minute is a new minute to me,â€ says Nancy Pelosi, and, with boxes packed in the hall outside, the soon-to-be former speaker has already jumped ahead to her vision of the â€œhumming, whirling entityâ€ House Democrats can still be in the coming Congress.
â€œIâ€™m obviously devastated by the loss we had,â€ she admits. But expect no tears, no retreat on health care reform.
â€œNothing compares â€” in anything I have ever done â€” with passing the health care bill.â€
I don’t disagree, but amazingly enough I think she’s speaking of that with a level of pride instead of embarrassment. That said, nothing says “it’s a good day” like the visual of Nancy Pelosi moving out of the Speaker’s office, does it?
Pelosi’s final favorable rating as Speaker was the lowest it’s ever been. Yeah, America greatly appreciates the really expensive free stuff, Nanc!
