Pelosi brags

Posted by Richard on January 18, 2006

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader of the House, had a town hall meeting with her San Fran constituents on Saturday, and it didn’t go so well. She was apparently heckled and jeered throughout for not being anti-war enough and for not moving to impeach Bush:

SAN FRANCISCO — Swarmed by antiwar protesters, Rep. Nancy Pelosi on Saturday called the invasion of Iraq "a grotesque mistake" but rejected calls for President Bush’s impeachment.

Shouting to be heard above the boos and catcalls at a rowdy community forum, Pelosi — the leader of Democrats in the House — urged her constituents to instead channel their anger and energies into the 2006 midterm elections, when control of Congress will be at stake.

But the part that just cracked me up isn’t in any of the news stories I’ve seen. I heard the audio clip on the Laura Ingraham Show, but it looks like you have to be a paid member to listen to any of the audio from the show. Pelosi was defending herself and fellow Democrats against criticism that they’re weak-kneed and ineffectual. She was challenged by a heckler to cite even one thing they’d accomplished to thwart the eeevilll Republican agenda.

Pelosi said that she and the Democratic leadership stopped Social Security reform, in spite of criticism that they didn’t offer an alternative of their own. Her voice rising with pride, Pelosi declared, "We went for one solid year, taking heat from everyone who said, ‘Why don’t you have a plan? You can’t beat something with nothing.’ And we said, ‘Oh, yes we can.’ And we did!"

The audience actually cheered. I started laughing so hard I could hardly keep driving.
