Obama predicts Pelosi will be speaker again soon
Washington Post ^ | 2/07/13 | Ed O'Keefe

Posted on 02/09/2013 11:48:48 AM PST by Libloather

President Obama predicted Thursday that if Democrats pursue an ambitious agenda, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will soon have the speaker’s gavel back.

“It won’t be smooth, it won’t be simple, there will be frustrations, there will be times when you guys will be mad at me, and I’ll occasionally read about it.” he said. But if they keep focused, he said, ”I would expect that Nancy Pelosi is going to be speaker again pretty soon.”

But the president also appeared to be steeling House Democrats — who are more liberal than their Senate counterparts — for the need to remain open to concessions to moderate Democrats and Republicans not as eager to engage on the two domestic issues likely to dominate his State of the Union address next week — immigration and gun-control.

He may well know what he’s talking about. The fraud machine was finely honed in the presidential election.

He is probably getting the Executive order ready right now.

Fraud won’t be necessary.

The Republicans have assumed the foetal position and become Dem-lite. 2014 will be a repeat of 2012 at the local level—Disgusted conservatives and former Republicans will stay at home.

We HAVE to elect her to see what’s in her agenda. The same as the bills.

It’s sounds like Barry and the ‘RATS have aready begun fixing the 2014 “election”. It’s in the bag. We all knew that a second term for the Kenyan was going to be bad for America but this is getting ridiculous.

I believe it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that leftist “sleeper cells” have been in the GOP, biding their time to turn it to the left and destroy it from within. The same with the military and the Christian church-they’ve got all the other major American institutions, they just saved the hardest for last, or it took them longer with these. They’re on a roll now.

Wow, now he picks the Speaker of the House.

The USA Constitution is dead. We have the same form of government as Gabon.

In a second term, he doesn’t have to care about there being a scapegoat (ie, a Republican House) to blame his failires on. Now it’s more to his purpose to have all opposition out of the way, so his marxist juggernaut can move on unopposed.

Speaking about sticking things, we all know how these two "feel" about one another.

"Pelosi will be Speaker again soon"

This should be a GOP slogan for 2014.. This statement could garner winning votes for Republican candidates!

Besides Pelosi being Speaker of the House in 2014, I predict:

1) Gas will be 5+ a gallon
2) Amnesty is granted opening a floodgate of illegals entering anyway possible
3) Obama comes out of the closet
4) Chinese are drilling for oil in USA as a deal to forgive our debt
5) Europe collapses economically
6) Guns are legal but ammo is taxed sky-high
7) Texas is forced to bailout California
8) UN ‘observers’ patrol inner cities in an effort to curb gun violence.
9) Anti-Christian rhetoric in USA is fever pitch
10) What’s left of the US Constitution is scrapped in favor of FDR’s/progressives proposed new Bill of Rights.

That is EXACTLY correct. We have seen our last free and honest national elections. The Chicago Machine has gone national and Obama is doing the same damn exact thing I have heard every Crook County hack make in terms of "Prediction" before they rig the election and make that 'prediction' become a reality.

We're a MarxoFascist State now folks, the longer it takes for us to wake up to this reality, the more Americans are going to be wiped out by this regime.

You forgot to mention the coming world wide depression.

It's starting in South America and Europe will fall next.
