Obama Looks Forward to the Return of ‘Speaker Pelosi’ in 2013

“After years of historic deficits, this new Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: pay as you go, no new deficit spending. Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future generations, not burden them with mountains of debt.” — Nancy Pelosi during the gavel acceptance speech, January 2007

By the end of her tenure as the nation’s 60th Speaker, the national debt shot up approximately $5 trillion — more than the first 57 Speakers combined, according to CNS News.

I have a feeling that’s not the kind of “heyday” the majority of voters will be longing for a return to when they go to the polls just over a year from now, but President Obama is putting it out there nonetheless just in case:

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 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.”

It wouldn’t be Halloween without a good scare.

In terms of leaving most other Speakers in the dust as far as swiping the national credit card and demagoguing her opponents goes, yes, Nancy Pelosi was and is one of the best.
