Obama Predicts Pelosi Will Be Speaker Once Again

Hope springs eternal for some, but I’m not even sure the Democrats (with a few exceptions) would want Nancy Pelosi to be Speaker of the House again given the semi-slaughter she helped lead them to in the midterms. Count President Obama among those who would like her to wield the gavel once again:

President Obama this week predicted that Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hasn’t seen her last stint as House Speaker – an indication Democrats remain confident they can win back control of the House sometime in the not-too-distant future.

“What can I say about Nancy Pelosi?” Obama told members of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco on Thursday. “I think [she] will go down in history as one of the finest Speakers that we have ever had, and she is going to continue to be, in the future, one of the great Speakers that we’ve ever had.”

One of the great Speakers we’ve ever had? Really?

When Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) gave her inaugural address as speaker of the House in 2007, she vowed there would be “no new deficit spending.” Since that day, the national debt has increased by $5 trillion, according to the U.S. Treasury Department.

It depends on what your definition of “great” is. Does Obama expect anyone to believe he’s serious about his recent debt reduction talk when, almost in the same breath, he’s openly hoping for the return of the biggest spending Speaker in history? (The Rhetorical Question of the Day™ was brought to you by 3M Ear Plugs — when you don’t want to hear the answer, make it 3M!)
