According to President Obama, Nancy Pelosi was one of the best Speakers ever! I guess his idea of an effective Speaker is ramming through wildly unpopular legislation against the will of the American people. By that measure he’s right, she was fantastic!
“I am biased, but I think Nancy was one of the best Speakers of the House this country ever had,” Obama said after Pelosi had introduced him at the National Italian American Foundation gala.
“She was no doubt the best Italian American Speaker of the House we ever had. And I believe that she will be the best Speaker of the House again in 2013.”
If that’s not reason enough to get people out to vote in 2012, I don’t know what is.
