Pelosi: Thanks to Romney, "I Feel Better" about Retaking the House
Townhall.com ^ | April 13, 2012 | Erika Johnson

I'd been under the impression that, while the Senate and the presidency are going to be legitimately hot contests, the Republican majority in the House is going to be the least of conservatives' worries. Apparently, however, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thinks that all of this outrageous outrage over the trumped-up "war on women" is such a powerful demonstration of Mitt Romney's supposed incompetence that President Obama is falling back into the good graces of lady voters everywhere. Err... if you say so...

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that strong evidence of a gender-based support disparity between Republicans and Democrats makes her feel "better" about the chances for Democrats to retake the House in November. ...

The war between President Obama and Mitt Romney over female voters intensified this week, with Romney asserting that 92 percent of the jobs lost under Obama were women's jobs, and Obama and the Democratic National Committee firing back that Romney's campaign couldn't even answer whether he supported a major piece of equal-pay legislation.

"I would have said, two months ago, we had a 50-50 chance of winning the House," Pelosi said.

"Since then, so much changed because women have shifted in large measure to the president and to the Democrats," she continued. ...

"If this is an example of how Mitt Romney is going to run for president, I feel sad for the process and country, because either he doesn't know what the facts are or he doesn't care," she said.

The approval rating of the incumbent president is of course an important factor in forecasting Congressional elections, but just logistics-wise, it would take quite the shakeup for Democrats to regain so many of the available seats, and President Obama's approval rating has been all over the place of late: in a recent Gallup poll of twelve swing states, seems that the "Republicans want to ban contraception!"-hooey may have taken its toll, as Romney lost his lead among women voters in those states between February and March; but in a new Fox News poll, Romney is beating President Obama nationally, 46 versus 44 percent. As ever, with that evergreen disclaimer: plenty can change between now and November, and at the end of the day, it really is anyone's game. But be careful not to get cocky there, Ms. Pelosi -- especially with The One instituting an every-Democrat-for-himself approach to collecting campaign cash.

Are these RINO words? Doesn’t sound like it. OK, suppose the doubters are right and Milch is just sayin’ so to get elected and then once elected, he’ll do nothing to support guns.

No, what he is doing is talking past the other nomination candidates and pretending they have all dropped out, when we have several primaries and over a thousand delegates yet to be allotted based on primary and caucus preferences.

Romney and the MSM are trying to shut down the nomination process -- like pretending to call a game in the fifth inning because a few raindrops showed up.

Romney owes us the rest of the primary campaign -- he can either participate or go to hell. He's not getting away with this "well, that's good enough -- you other guys, just throw in and quit, and I'll graciously accept the nomination by acclamation." Bull squeeze. Don't do this -- do not participate in his play, it's morally and intellectually dishonest.

As for his "positions" (lol) on gun control and abortion, I have no doubt in my mind what Mr. Etch-a-Sketch is going to do even while the convention is still in progress. He's going to disown 75% of the Republican Party and pretend like we are not even alive.

She really does believe her disillusioned concepts of what is best for America.

Right now the rats are stuck in a socialist bucket, they can only gain positions by making alliances with Islam, Marxism, the Unions and radical groups like the Communist Party USA and the Black Panthers.

Pelosi I believe is a candidate for a shrink or at the least an MRI exam, there is something wrong, terribly wrong inside her head.

Sorry Piglosi but after Hilllary Rozzeeennn blasted Ann Romney and it turned really bad, you now have zero chance of retaking the House!

Rosen was scheduled to be a guest with DNC dave on MTP tomorrow but she "CANCELLED". From what I have heard this BI_CH she would never have cancelled on her own. My guess is Axelrod did it for her. Just too good.Marxists regime in high self-destruct mode.Too good.

The only freaks here are the one’s who keep equating ozero with Romney. If you can’t tell the difference you should go to the DU where you belong.

“Talk about someone dreaming.”

She may be right. Considering all the left wing loons in the electorate, along with all the vote fraud, she may not be far off the mark.

IMHO

How in Hell’s name would we ever know if this company accurately counts the votes or not?

This country has gone wacko.

The FedGov doesn’t run elections, the states do. However, this company is counting votes for the elections of several key states in this country.

County clerks are going to be surprised to learn they aren't in charge of elections!

IOW, I don't believe it.

Wait! Four years ago I wouldn't have believed it...before Obama. Nothing surprises me these days.

My comment was directed at “Pelosi”, not the poster so, you’re responding to something I didn’t say or imply.

I’ve done the exact same thing in the past so, don’t sweat it.
