Obama: I could get a lot more done with Pelosi as speaker, you know
Hot Air ^ | April 4, 2013 | Erika Johnsen

Obama’s “you’re on your own”-attitude toward the DCCC and the DSCC during the 2012 campaign cycle was not particularly appreciated by his very vexed fellow Democrats, but he’s already starting to make good on his Lone-Ranger-no-more promise to help them with the 2014 midterms — he is going to need a fully Democratic Congress to have any hope of securing his legacy, after all.

During the first of the at least fourteen promised Democratic campaign swings this year, the president paid the usual lip service to sincerely wanting to work with Republicans (“Look, my intention here is to try to get as much done with the Republican Party over the next two years as I can, because we can’t have perpetual campaigns… I am looking to find areas of common ground with Republicans every single day,” blah blah blah), but made no secret of the fact that he’s looking for a Democratic takeover. Via Roll Call:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $3.25 million Wednesday evening at fundraising events that President Barack Obama headlined in San Francisco.

It was the first of eight DCCC fundraisers the president has committed to in the 2014 cycle. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., attended the events — cocktails at one home and then dinner at another — and Obama stressed the importance of returning her to the speakership.

“I am here because there are very few people in public office who I am more fond of and respectful than the person who just introduced me, Nancy Pelosi,” Obama said in his remarks. “She is thoughtful, she’s visionary, she’s as tough as nails. She is practical. She never lets ideology cloud her judgment.”

I just tried to repeat that last line out loud with a straight face. I couldn’t do it....

Indeed he could! Thank the Lord that she is no longer in that position! As bad as things are, if the Democrats Socialists gain control of the House again, we are truly lost!

Mr. President, you had Pelosi as Speaker of the House for two years, all you managed to get done is the Stimulus, Cash for Clunkers, and Obamacare. Virtually nothing else. None of those items anyone examining dispassionately would remotely call a successful initiative.

There’s nothing he hates more than being forced to be president of all the people.
