Pelosi: “Oh, Mitt Romney is not going to be president”

posted at 2:01 pm on September 17, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

By all means, keep yucking it up, Democrats. I’m sure the American people are almost convinced you’re not the least bit scared. On CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, a little before the five-minute mark:

“Oh, Mitt Romney is not going to be president of the United States. I think everybody knows that.”

Does everybody know that? Because by most accounts, this election has been running on a too-close-to-call basis, and while the differing arguments from pollsters and pundits abound, very few people are calling this thing as definitively locked up for President Obama. The House Minority Leader went on to preemptively apologize for the Republicans’ ‘philosophy of obstruction’ that will no doubt dominate an Obama second term (since Republicans just loathe ‘clean air’ and ‘clean water’ and ‘public safety’ and whatnot), i.e., President Obama will continue to demonstrate an abysmal sense of leadership and nothing major will change — man oh man, that’s some really excellent reasoning to vote for the president if ever I’ve heard it.

Pelosi also reiterated her confidence in the Democrats’ chances for taking back the House (again, er… the Democrats are going to easily net 25 seats? Really?) and the Senate’s chances for keeping their Democratic majority. Maybe she’s just playing up the blitheness, but it’s kind of an interesting strategy — isn’t conventional wisdom that you usually try to appear less than confident in order to motivate the base to get out to the voting booths?

Frank Sinatra won’t mind.

I’m sorry Nancy,
You can’t be serious.
Everyone knows that you’re delirious.
Isn’t it time we replace
Our Nancy with the Botox face?

I swear to goodness
She’s such a loser
And as we’ve learned, she’s quite a boozer.
Plainly she’s just a disgrace.
Our Nancy with the Botox face.

She’s just mad cause somebody dropped a house on her sister.

President Romney disagrees with ms pelosi on this and various other matters.

MaggiePoo on September 17, 2012 at 2:52 PM

who knows? She and Obama might already know the election results. They get to appoint the counters, don’t they?

Archivarix on September 17, 2012 at 2:05 PM

If this is the case then this delusional fool would have remained speaker of the House after the 2010 eletions like she predicted just few days before that elections…

“Oh, Mitt Romney is not going to be president of the United States. I think everybody knows that.”

Did Susan B. Anthony tell her that?

lynncgb on September 17, 2012 at 2:53 PM

That cooing voice, the empty talking points, and the teeth-on-top smiling while lying through her teeth drive me crazy about Pelosi. Her “vision” of what the federal government’s role is is antithetical to what our forefathers created.

onlineanalyst on September 17, 2012 at 2:55 PM

What ol wrinkles is saying is “everybody knows that if it’s close we Dems will do whatever it takes to wrest this election from the electorate” 10,000 lawyers are standing by as are illegal aliens, dead people, their dead pets, felons, the majority of the minorities etc…

Wonder what ol botox knows that we don’t know.

neyney on September 17, 2012 at 2:56 PM

Prove Pelosi Wrong (again)!

OK Patriots, Pelosi has just provided one more reason to motivate us to work hard to make sure President Romney is elected in November.

And while we are at it we need to Hold the House and Seize the Senate!

Early voting has already begun in North Carolina and more states will start voting next week.

We are in the home stretch now. Make sure ALL of your friends and family are ready to vote properly NOW!

Iowa’s Sept. 27 start to early voting in-person or by mail is among the first in the nation.

Only three other states allow voters to cast ballots in person earlier — Idaho, South Dakota and Vermont. Wyoming also begins Sept. 27.

Another 26 states allow in-person early voting to begin in October, including Nebraska on Oct. 1.

North Carolina is the first state to accept absentee ballots by mail. It starts Sept. 6.

Would love to see her Questioned in front of the Department of Justice:

What does Nancy know…..and How does she know it?

Anyone want to discuss her actual party that attempts real voter suppression!

Still waiting for the video or audio on that accused racist remark and spitting at the black caucus by the Tea-Party that never took place as they walked across the capital grounds with the big gavel of intimidation in her malicious grandma hands.

Wealthy democrat 1%ers…. cannot remain wealthy 1%ers without the welfare entitlement vote.

affenhauer on September 17, 2012 at 3:00 PM

Early voting has already begun in North Carolina and more states will start voting next week.

Take note of the increases of out of state license plates with Obama-Biden bumper stickers…. It will not be a coincidence if solid districts opposing Obama all of a sudden have more votes that registered voters.

Supposedly the votes are staggered to no allow for cross counties and states to ACCOMMODATE Transitional Voting Options i.e. voting fraud!

ActinUpinTexas on September 17, 2012 at 3:02 PM

Jennifer Rubin nails it:

Pelosi’s statement is another confirmation that the Dems are going to steal yet another election.

Remember when we abused her for her response to the question about whether Obamacare was constitutional?

Pelosi’s statement is another confirmation that the Dems are going to steal yet another election.

TXJenny on September 17, 2012 at 3:17 PM

Exactly my point.

They stole one from the Supreme Court.

Don’t ever doubt their ability to steal this election.

Carnac on September 17, 2012 at 3:28 PM

Two words – Baghdad Bob.

Didn’t Nancy famously proclaim on election day 2010 that things were going very well and Democrats would easily retain control of the House?

The woman is a bull**** factory.

mitchellvii on September 17, 2012 at 3:29 PM

Pelosi: “Oh, Mitt Romney is not going to be president”

If he has anything to say about it, she’s right. Whether the rest of us can drag his sorry RINO a*s over the line is another story.

rrpjr on September 17, 2012 at 3:35 PM

You see, in democracy, nobody knows anything till the polls close. In Pelosiland — and that’s what ObamaCare was all about, creating a dictatorship — the outcomes are known in advance because, well, the votes are rigged hopelessly in favor of the ruling party.

By “everybody” she means everyone in the ruling party, i.e., Democrats + Hollywood + the mainstream media.

No one else matters, really. Least of all, their political opponents.

I’ve never heard of this outfit (USP), but RCP has always seemed reliable.

I can’t help think the USP data is more like WishThinkingPolls.com

I just can’t shake the feeling that on Election Night we are in for a lot of Screaming, Melting, Chocolate Bunny videos…

Bruno Strozek on September 17, 2012 at 3:38 PM

No one else matters, really. Least of all, their political opponents.

And I might add: even less so, the voters.

bobcalco on September 17, 2012 at 3:39 PM

This is the same lady who on the eve of the 2010 midterms, in a stoic manner that would make Baghdad Bob blush, proclaimed that the Democrats would not lose the House.

So, yeah, her analysis means squat.

By the way DWS has been on a vacation, we hear, for some time now since the DNC. Not under a rock as where we thought axeljob put her.

jake49 on September 17, 2012 at 3:47 PM

This is the same idiot who claimed in 2010 that the dems would easily keep the House. Boy, she is sure the great prognosticator. BTW, Rasmussen has Romney up 47-45% in swing states today.

Ta111 on September 17, 2012 at 3:48 PM

I think she also said that the Republicans had absolutely no chance of taking the House in 2010….We see how that prediction went. This ding bat is so dizzy she also once said we had lost 250,000 Million jobs. That is almost 80 percent of the US Population. This ugly bat has not had a single thought in 20 years. Nancy Lugosi is proof that sometimes evolution goes backwards.

logicman_1998 on September 17, 2012 at 3:48 PM

Why is anyone even talking to this dessicated cow? She is both harpy and harridan and one fugly biatch to boot.

Besides the obvious reasons for electing Romney, I look forward to a mass of stinking Democrat congresscritters heading into retirement shortly after the election so they won’t be around to defend their participation in the inevitable coming meltdown. I hope Mitt is up to the task he will face.

SKYFOX on September 17, 2012 at 3:50 PM

So I guess we will have to hold the election to know how it is going to turn out….

redguy on September 17, 2012 at 3:52 PM

And every month we don’t pass stimulus, we lose 500 million American jobs, right Nan?

…she’s old…for a cokehead!

KOOLAID2 on September 17, 2012 at 4:10 PM

Pelosi has been reading Erick Erickson and Jen Rubin again. Of course she assumes that Romney won’t win.

Well, this may or may not happen, but one thing is certain,
Nan…You are an effing parasite.

ToddPA on September 17, 2012 at 5:24 PM

Pelosi also reiterated her confidence in the Democrats’ chances for taking back the House

And Baghdad Bob is still confident Saddam Hussein is going to be able to keep “the great satan” out of Baghdad.

TulsAmerican on September 17, 2012 at 5:28 PM

isn’t conventional wisdom that you usually try to appear less than confident in order to motivate the base to get out to the voting booths?

No Erika the conventional wisdom with sheep is that you reinforce their love for Obama by saying everybody else is voting for Obama and you don’t want to be a square.

Conan on September 17, 2012 at 5:45 PM

This insane la… goodness, I was just about to call that thing a lady, but whatever; this thing is one of the main reasons we have to vote Obama out!

And I want to watch her meltdown. Think MSNBC will carry it?

Sterling Holobyte on September 17, 2012 at 6:04 PM

Using my amazing Mom powers of tuning out the crap, I just can’t hear what she says any more.

She sounds like Charlie Brown’s teacher to me.

The last thing I can recall San Fran Nan saying was “God bless them for their spontaneity,” “It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.”

Jomama on September 17, 2012 at 6:10 PM

The fix is in on this next election, btw. The Democrats have contracted with a Spanish Firm to count the votes of the Nov elections behind closed doors… somewherein in Spain.

Nancy Pelosi helped set it all up. So, OF COURSE she knows Mitt won’t win this election.

Why do you think the sychophants in the Dem Party Propaganda Media are all simultaneously pushing totally bogus poll results? Because they’re preparing the population for election night results that show Obama winning re-election by 6-10 points.

Mahdi on September 17, 2012 at 6:22 PM

Obama is going to win re-election and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.

Mahdi on September 17, 2012 at 6:23 PM

the only positive thing i can say about this creature is she always displays confidence. Based on what, alzheimers?, I don’t know. But always confident.

yhxqqsn on September 17, 2012 at 6:28 PM

Romney would disagree, but first he has to ask his campaign manager if it would be okay to make a disagreeable comment in public. Or should he just duck and stay AWOL?

It is absolutely amazing that against the worst President in history, Romney can’t even maintain a 5 point lead.

Why Republicans nominated the media’s choice for the Republican nominee is beyond absurd. Romney is McCain all over again!

Pelosi would not be so smug were Newt the nominee.
