WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who said she has no doubts she'll be elected speaker of the House by her colleagues, said in her first interview since Election Day that she's proud to be branded "a San Francisco liberal... as that, the San Francisco values of St. Francis of Assisi, which I'm proud to be an instrument of God's deed."
Pelosi told CNN that she intends to bring for a vote initiatives that have enjoyed bipartisan support in Congress but haven't been brought to the floor by GOP leadership, including protection for DREAMers, comprehensive immigration reform, gun regulations, and barring discrimination against LGBT Americans.
"President Lincoln said public sentiment is everything, with it you can pass, you can do almost anything with that, or practically nothing. And I do believe that our strength is in the public involvement," she said.
Pelosi said that when President Trump called her after Democrats retook the House "I don't know if he said deals" because "it was very noisy in the room."
"I heard the word 'infrastructure' -- that came through clearly. But he said that, you know, let's talk how we -- I'm sure we can come to agreement on some things, and we have an obligation to try to find common ground," she said. "It is our constitutional responsibility to be a check on the executive branch and we have the responsibility to have oversight on the agencies of the executive branch and there will still be intent to implement that. And that shouldn't be -- cause for him of any concern, because that's the regular order."
"...I will be the speaker of the people's House and the people will hear the commitments that he makes. And they'll see whether he will, can be trusted in that regard. I hope so, because as we go forward, we want, as I said, an open Congress, a bipartisan Congress, a unifying Congress. We're not here to divide. We're here to unify."
Despite many incoming lawmakers vowing on the campaign trail that she wouldn't have their vote, Pelosi said she has "total" and "a hundred percent" confidence she'll be elected speaker by her colleagues.
A Dem running against her for the top spot "doesn't matter," she insisted; "If I do, I mean, that's politics."
"Without getting into the making of sausage around here, I feel very confident about where I am and I feel very encouraged by the overwhelming support in my caucus that we'll go to the floor," she added. "...You know, I've been the workhorse and people say, well, you're not a show horse. Well, I'm happy to be a workhorse and a show horse now, because I'll be center stage."
On immigration, Pelosi said that "Democrats have to assert, as we always have, know we have to protect our borders. Our responsibility is to protect and defend. We take an oath when we get sworn into office to protect and defend."
"We have to protect in a way that protects our borders and honors our values, and also recognizes there are 11 million people in this country that we have to address in terms of legalization and perhaps a path -- and I believe a path to citizenship," she said. "It would be good for our economy."
How does she not burst into flame when she speaks?
Nasty is going to be instrumental in helping Trump create a red tsunami in 2020.
I believe this is what’s called “taking the Lord’s name in vain.”
She’s not human I tell ya!
Somebody needs to throw a bucket of water on her so she’ll melt.
comprehensive immigration reform,
I hope everyone knows that this really means:
“Comprehensively Screwing Americans Out Of Their Country”
And I hope that you also know that Rubio, Graham, Murkowsky, Romney, Alexander, etc. can’t wait to reach across the aisle and work with them on that.
As if God performs abortions...
Pelosi should never be used in the same sentence as God. You only piss HIM off.
A House Speaker with advanced dementia. Think about that.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
What she said doesnt even make sense.
An instrument of Gods deed???
Dr. Ted Noel (see him on YouTube) says Nasty Nancy has beginning stages of dementia and thats why she makes no sense. He has many
videos about Hillarys Parkinsons disease too.
That’s a strong possibility in my view, at least the middle stages of dementia.
Did she say St. Francis the Sissy?
Behold Nancy Pelosi the product of a Catholic education. I remember something Jesus said about judging a tree by its fruits.
she’s on a roll...
The god Pelosi worships is Baal.
Aren’t San Francisco values the reason why God destroyed the city of Sodom?
San Francisco values = kill the baby, bend over for the perverts and crap in the streets.
Didn’t she officiate at a public function in SF once that also had Satanists and an S&M couple urinating on each other (circa 1990s)?
