Nancy Pelosi: GOP attacks are a 'compliment'
Politico.com ^ | 10-5-10 | SIMMI AUJLA |

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday evening that she considers Republican attacks on her a “compliment” — evidence that she’s done her job well.

Pelosi (D-Calif.) told a friendly audience at a banquet at Fortune magazine’s “Most Powerful Women Summit” that special interest groups who stand to lose from measures like health care reform, Wall Street reform and college loan legislation want to get rid of those laws.

“No one’s talking about you, you have to wonder what you were doing,” she said. “I view that as a highest compliment, that they want to take us down,” she said at the event at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington.

“It isn’t about me. And if they want to make it about me then they have to have something else to offer,” she said in response to questions from writer Nora Ephron, who conducted a ranging half-hour interview.

She said she doesn’t pay attention to the attacks because she chose to go into a field that isn’t for the faint of heart.

“This requires donning suit of armor, a suit of armor. You will be characterized in a way that none of your friends neighbors and maybe even family won’t recognize,” she said. “This is a very tough arena. If you throw a punch you have to be willing to take a punch.”

Freedom loving Americans want to take anti-constitution petty tyrants down - the only people that would view that as a compliment are the commie kind.

Hey Ms. Pelousi - it isn’t the GOP that’s attacking you, you hairbrained moron. It’s the PEOPLE who are attacking you - you and the other libtard morons who have been hell-bent on destroying this country, and on course for doing just that over the course of the past 3.5 years. WE THE PEOPLE want to see you go down in flames.

Everybody says that..

....it is a psychological trick to somehow make one feel better after they screwed things up so bad as to make everybody hate you.

So she believes her job to be that of destroying the American economy and the social/moral fiber that holds a society together? What an assclown...

"special interest groups who stand to lose from measures like health care reform, Wall Street reform and college loan legislation want to get rid of those laws."

Yeah, you dildo, that "special interest" are THE AMERICAN PEOPLE who have to PAY for it, and pay for the wrong-doing/lifestyle choices/government dependency of slugs.

THE PEOPLE are the special interests who are not interested in your "Socialist Utopia" Plan....

The BEST part of this election will be seeing her sorry ass relegated to the back row of the House, and to shut her up. She can save MILLIONS on Botox, then......

Yeah, special interest groups like mainstream America; the sort of special interest groups who want to take responsibility for feeding, clothing, and housing their families - as opposed to those who want a free suck at the government teat, courtesy of Pelosi and the other socialist thieves.

Correct. Pelosi will be the designated scapegoat. After all, she rammed through the lefts program. The Kenyan was just her errand boy.

I guess she will consider getting ousted from office the equivalent of a Nobel prize.

When has she ever faced a hostile audience? I've never seen it.

Nothing but friendly audiences and the usual butt-kissing media coverage.

If she's so powerful, let's see her face an audience that will ask her hard questions. Bet you she'd stammer and stutter like a president without a teleprompter.
