San Fran Nan: Dems Will Hit Campaign Trail With Spirit of Optimism
Pelosi told reporters yesterday that her radical party members left the halls of Congress this year with a spirit of optimism.
Maybe she missed this ad… Democrat Rep. Earl Pomeroy, who voted with Pelosi 97% of the time, is now running a pro-Bush ad in North Dakota.
He doesn’t sound very optimistic.
The Hill reported:
House Democratic leaders on Thursday defended their move to cut the legislative session short so lawmakers could return to the campaign trail.
In the wake of Republican attacks, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her top lieutenants stood firmly behind their overhauls of healthcare, Wall Street regulation and student loan policies as both historic and fiscally sound.
After a flurry of votes on Wednesday and a campaign strategy session with President Obama at the White House on Thursday, Pelosi struck an upbeat note to begin the final push to the November midterm elections.
“Our members left [Wednesday] evening in a spirit of optimism,” Pelosi said at a Capitol press conference.
With political analysts projecting big gains for Republicans in November, Democrats have found themselves subjected to a two-pronged attack heading into the elections.
