Worst. Speaker. Ever… Pelosi Loses AT LEAST 12 Votes on Partisan Speech!!
Worst. Speaker. Ever.
When it came time to suit up and show up Pelosi fell short.
Pelosi served a Bush-bashing crap sandwich to the House before what will go down as the most important vote of her short and disastrous reign as Speaker:
Nice work, Madam Speaker.
House Republicans disclosed that Pelosi lost at least a dozen votes with her bash:
Opponents said part of the reason for the opposition from Republicans was what they termed a partisan speech by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said one GOP source. House Minority Whip Roy Blunt said he thinks Republicans could have provided a dozen more votes had Pelosi not given her speech.
This was obviously planned.
Sadly, the greatest financial meltdown in generations was not enough for Speaker Pelosi to put politics aside.
12 votes would have swung the bailout vote.
More… $1.1 Trillion was lost today in the stock market.
…More than the $700 billion bailout bill the House failed to pass.
UPDATE: Not bad… Pelosi’s five minutes only cost America a cool trillion!
