Pelosi sketches strategy on key issues
SF Chronicle ^ | 1/22/09 | Zachary Coile, Chronicle Washington Bureau

Posted on 01/22/2009 7:54:36 AM PST by bestintxas

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a post-inauguration interview with Bay Area reporters Wednesday, said she will move far-reaching climate change legislation this year, but opposes - at least for now - the idea of Congress approving another costly bailout for troubled banks.

The San Francisco Democrat, arguably the second most powerful person in Washington, with immense power to shape the legislative agenda, sought to tamp down expectations about how quickly Congress and President Obama will address vexing problems, from a weak economy to an ailing health care system.

"We can't fix it all overnight," she said from her Capitol office overlooking the Mall, "but we have to begin."

Pelosi said one of her favorite moments from Inauguration Day was when Marine One lifted off the Capitol grounds, signifying former President George W. Bush's exit from Washington. "It felt like a 10-pound anvil was lifted off my head," she said.

Red Nancy, gracious to the end to the President who was UNFAILINGLY polite to her, deferred to and defended her imperious demand for a BIG private jet and unprecedented office perks, and rolled over to her on the TARP

A real inspiration and class act for her grandchildren

A representative of the coming change in tone

10 lbs anvil? Shoulda been a 148 lbs Peter Wright dropped from a respectable height.

I think that's a great idea. And make phone calls to her office as well.

Bush's approval rating never got as low as Nancy's did.

Wow. A 10 lb anvil is a pretty small anvil. About the size of a stapler.

Glad her burdens are so light.

I will gladly email her. Do any of you know her email or how to get it I suppose I could call the capitol and leave a voice mail for her. But, an email would be good, too.

Anyone who thinks an anvil weighs 10 pounds has obviously never seen one. But what am I thinking???? Only working stiffs would ever muck around with anvils and such.

Nothing any of us could say about Nancy Pelosi is as damagning to her as this comment.

Pelosi:”It felt like a 10-pound anvil was lifted off my head” (now that Bush is gone)

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I don’t remember any of the GOP congress saying anything negative about William Jefferson Clinton we he left office in 2001?????

Of course, class is not a trait of the left....

All Democrats know how to do is break things and mess things up and spend the rest of the time blaming others for their ineptitude.

for 8 years the left have been moaning about Bush and have been fighting tooth and nail against him.
Saying dissent is patriotic bla bla.

Now when Bush took over the kids working with Clinton did stupid classless immature things like taking keyboard buttons etc.

Now Bush hands things over and he does it with class, give praise and makes phony welcome etc.

What does the Dems do again, ?
Well they act like little kids with no class, .Phonies speech had nothing for Bush but sly digs and the rest of the Dems have been putting down Bush and the GOP.

They make me sick I did not agree with bush on certain issues but he had class and so did his wife.
We now have a racist with angry bitter racist wife who both hang around with terrorists, Marxist’s and racists.

Just been reported that one of phonies staff said don’t give any bailout money to white contractors.
Then there’s the balls the other night where rappers were saying get out white our president is black, N%%%%% this and that.

It contained lots of racist crap aimed at whites and the blacks there cheered a lot.

The Dems are certainly classless
Is this the change you voted for idiots

If she thinks Bush is a 10 pound gavel, wait until the Obama Rock of Gibraltar lands on her. This is a man who brooks no interference and he only talks about cooperation and fair play. But that’s for the other guys, not him!
