Stephanopoulos Twice Refers to Nancy Pelosi as “Speaker”
NewsBusters ^ | May 7, 2006 | Brent Baker

Posted on 05/08/2006 4:30:03 PM PDT by george76

On Sunday's This Week, George Stephanopoulos not once but twice, referred to Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as “Speaker,” a title she would presumably get if Democrats win back the House this fall.

So, a Freudian slip by Stephanopoulos, a one-time staff member for the Democratic House leadership himself when they were in the majority?

Before signing aboard the Clinton campaign in 1991, Stephanopoulos was a floor assistant to then-House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt.

Interviewing Congressman Tom DeLay, the former House Majority Leader who suggested that if Democrats win control of the House they will pursue impeachment, Stephanopoulos countered:

“Democrats are also coming forward with another agenda, Speaker, ah perhaps Speaker Pelosi , she's certainly not the Speaker right now, the Democratic leader Pelosi says...”

Then with DNC Chairman Howard Dean, Stephanopoulos asserted to Dean's delight: "You talked about an ethics legislation coming forward in the first hundred days, that was not one of the top four pieces of legislation that Speaker Pelo -- uh, excuse me, I don't know why I've got that stuck in my head today-"

Dean chortled: "I'm glad.

I like the sound of that George, I like the sound of that!"

Good way to encourage Republican turnout, guys.

It looked like the Republican turnout was going to be pretty low. The right way for them to handle this would just be low key, and say "no, no, we're not thinking of impeachment, it was wrong when they did that to Bill Clinton and we wouldn't do it."

The "Build-a-Burgers" have selected her in Davos, with George "Steponallofus" privy to their decisions.

after DeLay noted how if Democrats win the House John Conyers will take over the Judiciary Committee and he has promised to launch impeachment hearings:

I've seen clips of her performance. I would characterize them as positively Orgasmic. She was beaming in the afterglow of uttering the words, absolutely in love with the prospect.

Ridiculous.

How Republicans vote is another matter entirely.

You think so? I don't know. I haven't been seeing a lot of enthusiasm from Republicans (well, Republicans on FR are more enthusiastic than most, I think.)

I figure the only way the Democrats can win is if we don't show up, and I still think there is a reasonably high chance of that. I'm not so much thinking that Republicans are going to switch their votes to someone else, especially when it's just a Congressional election (most congressional districts don't even have more candidates than just a Republican and a Democrate running anyway, I think.)

Member opinion to FR poll question.........

If the White House and GOP controlled congress does not act immediately to seal the borders, penalize employers who hire illegals and deport illegals when caught, how will it affect your vote in November?

I'll believe it the first time I see a third of Republicans actually vote third party in a Congressional election.

I'm assuming it's going to end up working out more like 45.9% voting GOP, 5% actually voting third party, and the rest not showing up. Either way that's looking pretty horrible for the Republican party's chances unless they wake up. Or, say, the, Democrats hand them the election by threatening to impeach the President if they get elected.

I would say that if those poll results are among Republicans that are activist enough to post on FR -- well, I'm not sure why the rest of the Republicans would bother to show up to vote.

If that's all that's needed for Republicans to hold onto a majority, it's already in the bag.

The 'rats haven't just simply threatened impeachment ..........they've promised it.

Pelosi needs to buy a clue. If Democrats take control of the House, there is no way in hell they would let a woman be House Speaker. That position is put to a vote between Democrat House members. She has done nothing to earn the votes of a majority of these Congressmen.

Pelosi should ask Zoe Baird, Lani Guinere, and Janet Reno just how much support women get from the DNC.

The same with Black Americans.

JC was a Republican leader and would be one now if he wanted it.

The DUmmies lie to black America and to the Black Caucus.

Was there ever a Black Democratic House leader ? Or black Secretary of State...or...

Why do they continue to believe the DUmmies lies ?

So what's the big deal about that? After all, a large majority of polled FReepers say that's what they want to see next year.

I'm sure Pelosi and Dingy Harry will use all their power as Speaker and Majority Leader next term to stop the illegal immigration tsunami that has almost everyone on the board except me cussing themselves for voting for Bush last time.(sarcasm tag)

There was a black Congressman (Ford, I think) that was next in line for the minority leadership position, yet was passed over so that Pelosi could have it. Go figure.

That is my point.

The Democrats make lots of promises but do not deliver.

The voters are to blame because they do not change their votes.

The House chairs should alone force conserv Pubs and Libertarians to come back to the fold to keep this nation safe internationally and domestically. Dems are downright Quislings. And have been for nearly 50 years.
