For those who remember, back in 2008 she said there was no way the McCain-Palin team would beat Obama-Biden. She was just as cocky then as she is now
with this recent proclamation.
You know, whenever Pelosi speaks, I listen very carefully. This woman runs things in Washington.
I wish that were true...that she ran things...I think she knows things...most all things and from the inside, too...but if she ran things, I don't
think we'd be having the problem with obstructionism in Congress...and I'm not saying that to argue with you...just kind of a wistful sigh because
she knows exactly what the problem is...or maybe I should say 'who.'
She's a smart lady and doesn't mince words.
I like that.
WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) doesn't have a doubt in her mind that President Barack Obama will be reelected
in November. And she claims she's not alone.
Pelosi makes bold statement on Romney's election
There's no doubt in my mind, either.
Perhaps the polls have been showing it up until now as more or less of a dead heat because only Republicans or rich democrats are ever home, off work,
to answer the phone when the pollsters ring. They would be the ones making the polls heavy toward Romney...and also, I've noticed that a lot of
people are planning to vote for Obama but are mostly not the type of people to be outspoken or verbal or even insulting toward Romney as so many of
the Romney supporters are toward Obama and democrats in general.
I think there might be a lot of people voting in this election that have previously been not too concerned about voting and maybe haven't ever voted
or at least not in several years. And the majority of those, I'm thinking, are going to vote for Obama. Most of the Republican party is not voting
for Romney per se, but voting to put Obama out of the Oval Office. And those that are voting for that purpose are probably regular voters.
The new voters will be the people who have benefited from Obamacare already...same sex marriage equality supporters, both gay and straight...gay
military personnel...and I'm sure there are others...everyone who was in the crowd at the DNC this year...which was a BIG crowd and very diverse. It
was not the usual way-into-politics crowd that usually attends the party convention of their choice...the RNC still looked like that kind of crowd but
the DNC was a whole new animal as far as primary convention-goers is concerned.
And who knows? There might even be new or regular voters who vote for Obama to vote AGAINST Romney...I'm thinking maybe people who suffered hardship
as a result of Bain Capital or other slights that Romney might not even have been aware of, much less think of or remember...but that they have not
forgotten at all but remember vividly.
Besides all that...it is rare that the American people don't vote the incumbent back into office for a second term. The last time we only gave a
President one term was George H W Bush...I think that 'no new taxes' thing that he reneged on was his pitfall for re-election...either that or the
vomiting at the banquet in Japan.
I know...that was a mean thing for me to say.
