    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The story here at "Trump: I'll work with Democrats." I saw that headline, I said, "Now, wait just a minute. What's this?" So I read the story. "Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is stressing his bona fides as a dealmaker who'd be able to enter the White House and work with congressional Democrats to hammer out agreements. 'I think I'm going to be able to get along with Pelosi -- I've always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi,' Trump said Tuesday on MSNBC. ... 'Reid's going to be gone. I've always had a decent relationship...

    In January, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was asked by a reporter if an unborn baby at 20 weeks is a human being. She shot back that when she was a new member of Congress, someone quipped, "Nancy Pelosi thinks she knows more about having babies than the pope." She added, "Yeah. That would be true." That same smarter-than-the-pontiff feminist arrogance unfolded again on Oct. 1, a few days after Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards testified to Congress regarding that group's fetal body parts-for-profit scandal. Sam Dorman of our news outlet asked Pelosi a very simple and pertinent question....

    They’ve all been reelected several times, but the four top congressional leaders remain an unpopular choice among voters nationwide. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters have an unfavorable opinion of House SpeakerJohn Boehner, and 53% say the same of House Democratic leaderNancy Pelosi. Unfavorables are only slightly lower for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (46%) and his Democratic counterpart, Minority Leader Harry Reid (50%), but that’s probably in part because they are not as well-known to voters. A closer look at these numbers finds that Pelosi remains, as she has been for...

    Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner this afternoon saying she would not be sending any Democrats to sit on the Benghazi select committee because it "isn't fair," or something. More from the Washington Examiner: Democrats say they are concerned it will not allow their party to participate fairly in the investigation, which will involve subpoenas and viewing of classified materials related to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. According to a Democratic leadership aide, Pelosi rejects a rule that will not prevent chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., from issuing unilateral subpoenas...

Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said, "Did I ever tell my constituents that if they liked their plan they could keep it? I would have if I'd ever met anybody who liked his or her plan. But that was not my experience." Pelosi, whose net worth -- combined with her husband's -- is estimated between $35 and $180 million, never "met anybody who liked his or her plan"?

    House Democrats elected Nancy Pelosi to remain as their leader Wednesday despite massive party losses in this month's congressional elections that prompted some lawmakers to call for new leadership. Pelosi, the nation's first female House speaker, will become minority leader when Republicans assume the majority in the new Congress in January. She defeated moderate Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler of North Carolina, 150-43, in secret balloting in a lengthy closed-door gathering of House Democrats in the Capitol.

Pelosi is scheduled to attend a clean energy forum in Beijing on Tuesday along with Senator John Kerry, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Asked if she saw any evidence of the surge’s positive impact on her May 17 trip to Iraq she responded: Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation.

    In visiting Syria this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi no doubt meant well. She wants dialogue. As a woman, mother, and now the third-highest-ranking elected official in American politics, she has achieved a great deal in life by talking with people. On this trip she made a point of showing how easy it is to interact with Syrians, with an itinerary that included a visit to a souk in Damascus - where she was photographed holding out her hand while a cheerful vendor gave her some nuts. Unfortunately, that photo-op sums up the best that can be said about Pelosi's...

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) is viewed favorably by 49% of American voters and unfavorably by 40%. That’s an improvement from a month ago when 43% had a favorable opinion of her. Those figures also give Pelosi the highest name recognition of anybody in the Congressional Leadership ranks and make her the only Congressional Leader with a higher favorable total than unfavorable.

    Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2007 9:49 a.m. EST Speaker Nancy Pelosi Gets Big Jet House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will have access to an Air Force jet larger than the one used by her predecessor so she can fly nonstop between Washington and her San Francisco district. Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the speaker – who is second in line for the presidency after the vice president – has been able to use a military aircraft for security reasons. But the jet used by the previous speaker, Rep. Dennis Hastert of Illinois, was too small to fly to California without refueling. As...

    WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record) has agreed to a compromise that ends a three-week turf battle with one of her most powerful and senior committee chairmen over a special panel on climate change. Rep.

Dingell, in a letter to Pelosi that his office made public Tuesday, said he was...

    As previously discussed Nancy Pelosi will be meeting tomorrow with three members of the Mexican House of Representatives to discuss immigration matters. I called her office at (202) 225-4965, and Jamal refused to give me any further information on this matter and said there was no one else there I could speak to. The only option he gave me was to leave a message. I asked them to make the minutes of the meeting public, and I said that, since both Pelosi and the Mexican representatives were on the same page, while I hated to use the term the only...

    A source close to the controversy over the request made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for use of a military plane that can fly to and from her home district in San Francisco, Calif., without having to stop to refuel, tells ABC News that the Pentagon has rebuffed Pelosi's request. The source says that Pentagon officials and the Bush administration have instead offered Pelosi use of the same plane made available to former Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Illinois: a C-20, which seats about 12 passengers and five crew members. A C-20 can make the 700-mile flight to Hastert's Aurora, Ill.,...

    During his radio show yesterday, conservative personality Rush Limbaugh announced that he felt "liberated" by Tuesday's election results and that he doesn't "have to carry the water for people that I think don't deserve to have their water carried."

According to transcripts from the show available on Limbaugh's web site,, Limbaugh said it wasn't his job to make Republicans "look good if they can't do it themselves." "All I'm saying...
