Barack Obama praised Nancy Pelosi last night as one of the greatest Speakers in our nations history. Roll Call reported:
Obama welcomed the California Democrat at the gathering of 152 Democratic donors as someone whos going to go down as one of the greatest Speakers in our history, according to a pool report. Pelosi was Speaker from 2007 through 2010.
Not only were we able to get this economy going again but under Nancys leadership we were able to achieve historic health care legislation that over the last 15, 20 years will end up benefiting millions of families across the country, [and] we were able to get dont ask, dont tell repealed, Obama said, adding that Congress under Pelosi expanded investments in clean energy, infrastructure and education.
We didnt just rescue the economy, we put it on the strongest footing for the future, he said.
When Speaker Pelosi took over Congress the national deficit was $162 billion. When she exited in January 2011 it was at $1.29 Trillion dollars. Barack Obama tripled the national deficit in his first year after the stimulus passed. The Pelosi-Obama regime nearly matched it his second year. This year the deficit will be even higher.

The sad part is that the liberals actually believe it.
She racked up 5 trillion dollars to our national debt in the 4 years that she was SOTH. That’s quite a legacy...
Ha Ha! More like the satanic trinity of the Bible. Barak, Nancy, Reid.
We have been transported to the Bizarro world.
can we say: ‘Like Hell’:-)
I miss Nancy. If she were still Speaker Dick Cheney could beat Obama in 2012.
Oh yeah!....She’s the greatest thing since the invention of Birkenstocks....if your a whack left loon!
If only the GOP could maintain as much legislative and voting discipline as Democrats. In that regard, Obama’s right.
Unfortunately leftist history bares no resemblence to reality.
YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, INSANITY RULES THE NATION AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL!!! AND.....WHO IS TO BLAME FOR LETTING THE INMATES RUN LOOSE AND AMOK ALL OVER!!! THE AMERICAN VOTER!!! YES, ELECTIONS DO COUNT!!! SHAME!!!
I guess I can see his argument. The "Pelosi 301" IS one of the best small loudspeakers ever made. Truly ourstanding sound quality in a package deisgned for for those who don't have a lot of space to set up their stereo equipment...
...What's that? Hold on a minute... I'm being told that the name is actually BOSE...
My mistake. Sorry.
A simple misunderstanding. But... What?
Well, NOW they're explaining that the president was talking about NANCY Pelosi...
What's up with that? Is he off his rocker or something?
Transcript of Pelosi, House Democratic Leaders, and Economists Press Conference Following Economic Forum
Washington, D.C. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Democratic Leaders, Committee Chairs and six economic experts held a press conference this afternoon in the Capitol following an economic forum. Below is a transcript:
Speaker Pelosi. Good afternoon. We just had a very instructive meeting with some leading economists about the number one subject on the minds of the American people: jobs. Jobs, jobs, jobs, and jobs. It comes at a time when, as you know, job creation is centered at addressing at underlying concerns that people have in their own homes. These are kitchen table issues that we discussed over the Speakers table in the conference room.
I am going to introduce our experts that were here. You have their backgrounds. They are going to tell you some of their forecasts that they told us about some of the options that we may have in investments in tax policy, in budgetary overdue, on how we can create jobs in the most fiscally sound way.
I was very pleased that for the entire session of nearly four hours we were joined by our committee chairs, committees of jurisdiction that were appropriate, as well as our full House Democratic leadership. We had a very excellent exchange and I want you to hear more about it now. I am pleased that we had the benefit of the thinking of Dr. Mark Zandi, Dr. Alan Blinder, Bob Kuttner, Heather Boushey, Bill Hambrecht, and Allen Sinai. You have their backgrounds. We will hear from them now.
Mark Zandi. Thank you, Madam Speaker. I want to thank you for the opportunity, and all the House leaders, for the opportunity to be here today. I thought it was a very fruitful meeting, and I made three points in the meeting. First, I think the fiscal stimulus, the recovery package, is working. I dont think it is any accident that the recession has come to an end just about the same time that the stimulus is providing its maximum economic benefit. I think it has been very successful, most importantly the benefits to unemployed workers, as well as to help state government. I think that has been key, along with the other aspects of the stimulus.
The second point is that the recovery is still very fragile and still very tentative. I think the risks to the recovery are quite significant and the possibility of the economy slipping back into a recession next year are uncomfortably high for a number of reasons most important of which is what is going on the job market, the fact that businesses while they are curtailing their layoffs, they have not begun to hire more aggressively. I think that is a function of a number of things, a lack of confidence, a lack of credit, and therefore I think, this gets to point number three, which is that it is very important for policy makers to remain aggressive and continue to do more, and I listed a number of things which I think would be very helpful.
Most obviously, I think extended unemployment insurance benefits should be extended through the end of 2010. Right now under the current stimulus they expire at the end of 2009, and they need to be extended. I think the first-time homebuyer tax credit should be extended into mid-next year to help support the housing market which is still incredibly fragile. I think accelerated depreciation of net operating loss carryback, which also expires at the end of this year should be extended into the 2010 and the conforming loan limits that are temporarily higher through the end of 2009 should be extended through the end of 2010. So a number of things should be extended through 2010 to make sure that the economy, the recovery is going to evolve into a self sustaining economic expansion.
And let me say this: I think our focus on the fiscal situation and deficit is very important in the long run, but I think it is also very appropriate to run a larger near term budget deficit to make sure that this economy gets out of this situation and gets on a self sustaining economic track. Thank you.
Apparently not in Wisconsin
He thinks she's great because she doesn't rely on a teleprompter....
All I saw was “Pelosi will go down” before I barfed.
Her manifestly imperious hatred and cold-hearted disregard toward those who have the temerity to oppose her reckless tyranny is upstaged only by her callous indifference as to the smoking trail of damage she's forced upon our precious Republic.
One of the greatest?
