In this election night interview with Chris Matthews, Tom speaks about Pete Olson beating Nick SorosBoy Lampson in his old House district (Texas CD-22). He also states that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats will further destroy the economy with their increased seats and power in the U.S. House of Representatives. - FlA
- - 11.04.08-SFG: Will Pelosi "run circles" around Obama? - So says one expert on congressional power, former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay of Texas, a.k.a. "The Hammer." DeLay told MSNBC tonight that, with Democrats expected double-digit gains in the House, Pelosi will be the most powerful speaker in a generation. She will be able to do anything she wants. They are going to run circles around Obama. House lawmakers will double the minimum wage in six months," DeLay predicted. He suggested that House Democrats would give Obama "a little honeymoon at the beginning" before pursuing their own agenda for the next two years.
- - PW: Tom Delay was just interviewed on MSNBC. He said Pelosi, not Obama, is the big winner. The House Speaker is the powerhouse because of control of appropriations and the legislative timetable. Conservatives, like Tom Delay, dislike Obama, but they detest Pelosi. Pelosi will control the domestic agenda because Obama wll have to focus on foreign affairs in general and on winning the war on terrorism in particular.

Usually I’d agree with Mr. Delay, but not this time. He has never met Chicago thugs like Obama and Emmanuel. They will set the agenda, not Pelosi nor Reid. THEY have the Justice Department at their command. THEY have the IRS at their command. THEY will make BJ Klintoon look like an amateur..............
That said, Her Overlordship's eyes do glow in the dark with dreams of power. She can do an awful lot of damage to America from her Castro fiefdom.
It would be hard for her to do anything with broken knee caps.
Words of wisdom. I hope we listen.
Would McCain have been more successful in resisting his ‘good friends’ Reid & Pelosi? The silver lining is we are free to attack McCain again and again when he sticks the knife in the back of his ‘not so good friends’, all Conservatives.
Probably has his bipartisan kneepads out already for Obama. McCain was always the lesser of two evils in this election. Sadly, there isn't viable conservative legislative leadership. The GOP in the House will be running scared and to the left immediately in the hopes of retaining their seats in '10. Wrong lesson but a herd mentality.
Delay should crawl back into his little hole with his tail between his legs. He is useless.
Am I confused? Is Delay still in the House? No. He is worthless and so 2000.
I agree. Tom Delay is not helping, he is hurting. HE needs to crawl back under the rock. My hope is that Obama and the democrats overreach, leading to an uprising similar to that led by Gingrich in 1994. I say, go ahead, Obama, make our day...
I will be absolutely shocked if this prediction comes true. RATS are idiots about the economy but I dont think the stupidity will go quite this far.
wow, who chose the smile pics for those 2?
The fight between Marxists, Stalinists, Leninists, Maoists, and Clintonistas in Washington D.C. will be entertaining.. and if played right playing one agianst another (by any right wing whatevers that remain) quite useful too..
You are correct.
The GOP will need to take the fight to the Dems, like they did to us.
American politics is about keeping those in power over us accountable—that’s not divisive, that’s liberty.
Now, the Zero has to actually govern. Not pontificate.
He’s woefully above his paygrade. And he has been for some time.
Now it will become evident to everyone.
His choice for Top Aide, Emmanuel speaks volumes at 130 decibels.................
Excellent point, RB. Spot on.
The thugocracy begins.
And the "new faces" are really old faces, aren't they?!
Basically all bets are off. The first year will be a power struggle to see who ends up on top.
