Nancy Pelosi, “the greatest Speaker of the House” of all time.
Orange County Register (CA) ^ | April 17, 2010 | by Brian Calle

At the California Democratic Party Convention, Nancy Pelosi was introduced to the podium as not only the historic “first female Speaker of the House, but the greatest Speaker of the House” of all time. That’s an interesting choice of words.

She begins her speech proud that she and fellow Democrats made health care a “right.” She thanked allies of democrats, including the labor community who made health care ” a priority for decades.”

The audience, en masse, applauds her mentions of health care but not as loudly as some other issues. One audience member screamed out “universal, single health care for all.” Judging from the audience, for some of her ilk, Pelosi did not go far enough.

Pelosi claims the health reform is also entitlement reform because it saves tax payer money. That claim needs a fact check.

Can You Spot Speaker Nancy Pelosi?

Note: The above link contains an extremely offensive (to some) but hilarious adult reference to Queen Nancy.

she isn’t even the greatest Democrat Speaker. I refer you to THE Speaker, Sam Rayburn of Texas

She Is such a great speaker that she asked the very competent and loyal commander of our brave and loyal American troops if he betrayed us.

Nancy, many of us know who really betrayed us.

Yeah.....That’s why she has to have the largest security detail of any Speaker, to protect her from...the People.

“Greatest of all time”? If you measure the degree of greatness of speakers of the house by an odd hissing sound that they make, intertwined with a soft grunting groan issued through a smeared smile and inserted into the pauses of their speeches then, yeah, I’d call her the greatest.

Highly unlikely that Pelosi will ever come out ahead of Tip O’Niell (also a Democrat) who actually DID reach across the aisle and worked with Ronnie to strengthen this country instead of weaken it. This honor will NEVER belong to a polarizing figure (whose approval rating is in the single digits) like Pelosi, Unless we jusdge this honor by disdain for the people and pushing an agenda with little respect for her country and it’s people. If judged that way, she comes out clearly ahead of all Speakers of the House.

To communists, socialists, malcontents and other dregs of society she is the greatest Speaker of the House of all time. It's not even close.

No question they equate 'abusive, bullying and muscled power' with greatness. . and confuse it as well, with 'authentic power'.

They are so lost; these people whose authenticity is verified only by the worst of our planet's pond scum.

(With Liberalism dominating our 'school scapes' no wonder too; that bullying at all-time high. These are the children of Liberalism. . .in a manner of speaking.)

I think the media (a.k.a. communists, malcontents, and other dregs of society)will crown her, but when was the last time they printed the truth?

Nancy Pelosi, “the greatest Speaker of the House” of all time.

More like the most hated speaker of all time, and soon to be one of the shortest serving speakers of all time.

I just hope the new republican Speaker brings up the cost of flying Pelosi and her family to CA on a regular basis. I hope they keep talking about this ad nauseum until every single American citizen knows how much of our money she has squandered on her vanity.

Unfortunately, Nancy Pelosi is the strongest argument ever against giving women the right to vote... and I say that as a woman. Someone with less intellect and common sense than my cat should NOT be in a position of such power.

Hey, at least he tried. This one, however, just tries our collective patience. I really liked the way Tip and Ronnie worked together.
