Seriously, what the hell was he going to say?
President Obama on Saturday said Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was a great House Speaker and that she will get that job back after the 2012 elections.
“I’m facing defeat in 2012 because I let this walking disaster walk all over me while she threw away what might have very well been the greatest lopsided partisan divide in American history since the New Deal?” Or “The Democratic party leadership have sworn a death oath to set blood ninja upon this woman rather than let her be Speaker of the House again?” Or even “Agreeing to being here seemed like such a good idea, before my usual blind rage towards Nancy Pelosi kicked in?” – Because while all of those statements may be accurate*, they aren’t exactly what you’d call politic.
PS: From the article: “In the past, conservative campaigns have tried to paint Pelosi — and her leadership role in the Democratic Party — as the threatening face of the left.”
*Well, accurate enough. And you have to admit: the idea of the Democratic party having blood ninja would be pretty cool. After all, a group is known by the caliber of its enemies: and the GOP is currently stuck with… this?
