EXACTLY.

They were looking any reason to vote against it and she became the person they could blame.

Imagine if a reporter actually asked them "so you didnt vote for this because of Nancy Pelosi?"

What would the answer be?
"Yes, She said some mean words on the floor of the house".


LOL

She is blocking too much . She is hurting the country because she does not like Bush . She is playing hard ball with the country and be-damned with the people! This will also hurt Obama because she represents his party!!!

they were voting on a bill that bush, pelosi, reid, dodd, frank, and others wanted, not what americans wanted. she was especially weasel-like because she wanted credit for the bill passing, but wanted to blame the bill on republicans. even her own party saw through that! i might even go hug a democrat if i could catch one.....

If she really wanted to play hard ball, she'd have impeached his sorry *ss 2 years ago.

Nancy Pelosi needs to shut up? WHY?

Its her job to remind us what the true cost and why we arrived at this awful place?

Not only do they need to be chewed out publically, but maybe a good spanking on national television might make us feel better.
The partisan blaming is what I was referring to. This was caused by both the parties, not just the republicans. It is not helping having anyone from either party go on and on blaming the other side. At this point just come up with ideas together to fix it.

Look, she can't have it both ways. Neither can the republicans. BOTH sides are making this political!! She is the LEADER in the Senate and has chosen this path...now is pouting because the republicans are playing along.

I don't know about anyone else but I know and believe that this will effect all of us. Iff say my husbands company can't make payroll that effect me. I say we all go to Wahington sit on the lawn and say get this bill the Hell done. They are there because we the people voted for them. I understand that most of them don't deal with pay check to pay check. I know many people out there don't want tax payers to take this on. But if we don't will we be better off. Most of us don't have anything on wallstreet anyway, heck most are lucky to get through the week. If this effects the places we work at and what they can do it will be more than just getting a car, a house it will be living week to week without a paycheck. I get that all that may not happen this week but in some ways it already is.

Your right, she can't even control her own party, otherwise, they would have voted for it. She's far too liberal anyways. The last Speaker, Dennis Hastert, was fairly moderate, for a Republican. The Dems should go w/ one of their more moderate members as the Speaker, someone that can get Bipartisan workmanship done.

Someone needs to gag her! And if there is a magician in the house ... maybe she could be made to disappear!
Nancy Pelosi is doing her job and trying to protect the tax payers from the type of people who find this type of statement meaningful and timely. I am very happy that Pelosi is slowing down this process. It took 10 years to get into this mess and now you expect to get out of it in one week.
