What happened over the weekend as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sat down with ABC’s Jonathan Karl is further ammunition for those who believe the 77-year-old Congresswoman is going senile. After suffering an embarrassing mental breakdown on live television, she proceeded to make an absolute fool out of herself.
“Democrats retake the House,” Karl said during Sunday’s episode of This Week. “How does a Democratic House, you as a Democratic Speaker, work with this president? You’ve been the resistance, you look a lot like the party of ‘No’ right now…”
“I see everything as an opportunity. And I’ve never seen so much willingness to help win. And winning means winning for the American people, that either we win or whoever wins understands the priorities of the American people,” said Pelosi. “And they are not with President Bush.”
Instantly realizing her mistake, she threw her head back, placed her hand over her heart, and theatrically said, “I’m so sorry, President Bush. I never thought I would pray for the day that you were president again.”
Trying her best to salvage a response to Karl’s question after the embarrassing flub, Pelosi continued, “And so you asked the question, ‘How would I work with a Republican president?’ The way we worked with President Bush. We got a great deal accomplished.”
“Biggest energy bill in the history of our country, a tax bill that helped low-income working families that we wanted and we wanted to be big, and we found our common ground,” she added. “The list goes on and on.”
However, Pelosi didn’t always feel this way.
In 2008, however, Pelosi had offered a different assessment of former President George W. Bush.
“God bless him, bless his heart, President of the United States — a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject,” she said. [Source: Western Journalism]
During a similar moment of confusion in February, Pelosi said in an interview, “While it’s only been a couple of weeks since the inauguration, we’ve seen nothing that I can work with President Bush on.” She didn’t even bother correcting herself that time.
You’d think that with the near constant media interviews Pelosi performs she wold have honed her craft a bit better by now. At the very least, she should be more than familiar with the fact that Donald Trump is our president. Perhaps if that simple concept is so difficult for her to grasp, she ought to think about retiring, and soon. Although she’s trying to paint herself as the left’s savior and only hope, she’s quickly becoming nothing more than the poster child for term limits.
