Pelosi: “I feel better” about taking back the House

posted at 3:41 pm on April 13, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Nancy Pelosi is getting cocky:

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that strong evidence of a gender-based support disparity between Republicans and Democrats makes her feel “better” about the chances for Democrats to retake the House in November.

Pelosi ranked the chances as better than 50-50.

“I’ve always felt good about it,” she said Wednesday in San Francisco, according to theSan Francisco Chronicle. “But now I feel better.”

What specifically inspired Pelosi’s newfound confidence? She thinks Mitt Romney is overstating his case when he says that women have been disproportionately negatively affected by the Obama economy. (Oh yeah, and she thinks voters won’t like it that Republicans want to “slash funding for Medicare, health care and contraceptives.) Did Mitt Romney overstate the case, though? The San Francisco Chronicle, which first reported Pelosi’s chipper attitude toward the upcoming elections, misreported one of Romney’s claims. According to the Chronicle, Romney said that women constituted 92.3 percent of the current unemployed. In fact, Romney said that 92.3 percent of jobs lost under Obama were lost by women. There’s a difference. Even after PolitiFact rated that statement “mostly false,” the Romney camp still specifically insists it’s true. I’ve read both the PolitiFact account and the Romney camp’s response to PolitiFact’s rating and, not surprisingly, I stand with Romney on this one. Honestly, the figure itself is somewhat immaterial: The point is, Obama can talk a big talk on “women and the economy,” but the economy is the same for both men and women — and, under Obama, it has been lousy. The brief bits of good news we had early this year have since been overshadowed by last month’s poor jobs growth and other indicators of a still-weak economy.

By all means, let Pelosi feel confident. Maybe then she won’t work as hard as she’d need to to really engineer a comeback in the House — but I’m not too worried. Pelosi predicted the Supreme Court wouldn’t take seriously questions of Obamacare’s constitutionality, too …

Hey, take it easy on her guys! By the time she stands under the roof of the front porch of her mansion waiting for her butler to pull the golf cart around and makes that long trek down to the gate and waits for the thing to lumber open, the press is getting a tired woman with heat stroke.

And on her mind the whole time is when she needs to schedule the taxpayer funded G5 to pick her up to back to DC instead of one of her husband’s private jets.

But at least she rescued her butler from that horrible cannery in American Samoa . . . oh, wait, that’s run by her husband too at lower wages thanks to the exemption she got it from minimum wage laws.

Well at least her botox crippled face can still talk about unnecessary medical procedures killing the health care system, thus the need for death panels.

Nancy, your photo should be in the dictionary next to “liberal hypocrisy”

PastorJon on April 13, 2012 at 3:55 PM

The strategy is clear since they are unable to rely upon the youth vote as in 2008, they will try to drive up the female vote.

They know women traditionally fall on the Democrat’s side, they’re just trying to boost that a bit.

I suspect closer to election time we’ll hear about some type of amnesty program Obama will put in place for student loans.

I went to a Boehner speech on Wednesday. He says there’s about a 1 in 3 chance they’ll pry the gavel from his hands. They only have to win back about 25 seats to put Nancy back in charge {{{shudder}}}. Statistically, we’ll probably lose 10% of our freshmen anyway, so thats 9 seats right there. If this doesn’t motivate you, nothing will.

Boehner said we need to give money to congressmen in tough but winnable races, and we also need to give to Scott Walker, because if he loses his recall, that will be a morale booster for the commies (my term, not Boehner’s) in those midwestern swing states. Also important are the 32 races in “orphan” states–blue states with little GOP ground assets. Those guys are mostly in CA, NY, and IL, and need help.

UltimateBob on April 13, 2012 at 4:12 PM

Tina left me explain something about Pelosi if you haven’t observed it. Pelosi said she was keeping the gavel in 2010 to DONORS despite the horrifc polls. Want to guess why???? Because unless she can convince them she can deliver them goodies in the back room of her office in 2700 page bills that are passed without anyone allowed to read them HER PARTY DONATIONS DRY UP and then her candidates lose and don’t get the goodies SHE promised THEM to help their re-election.

Let’s go back to when people thought the Democrats were insane for keeping her as their leader, remember what they said in many cases? SHE BRINGS IN A LOT OF DONATIONS. lots didn’t get that but they should get why that is the core reason for keeping any democrat as a leader.

Plain and simple Tina, Pelosi has a play to pay relationship with A LOT OF RICH PEOPLE and that doesn’t work when she DOESN’T have the gavel and people DON’T PAY when they think she is the offical complainer of the democrat party and NOT the offical “I can get you millions in governent money” lady.

Crony Capitalism Tina…Live it, Learn it, Love it…it is the Democrat party Heart and Soul.

Regarding that Boehner speech at the fundraiser I attended, I didn’t realize how much of the speaker’s job is campaigning. Boehner said he’ll be on the road 200 nights this year fundraising for congressmen. And he said he flies commercially, since Nancy messed it up by abusing her Air Force privileges.

Tina,

Don’t you understand how Washington works yet? The more a politician is out there saying stuff like what Pelosi said the more the reality is the opposite. I remember Terry Macaulif (then Chairman of the DNC) out there the Friday before the 2002 elections predicting a huge Democrat sweep because of voter anger over Florida 2000 and the direction of the country under GWB. The got a net gain of eight seats in the House- one of the few times that the party in power in the Executive gained in Congressional representation.

If Pelosi is out there claiming the gavel will be hers, it is only because she sees that possibility slipping away.
