Obama on Pelosi: She never lets ideology cloud her judgment

When President Obama is on his game he’s some serious kind of funny (he’s funny when he’s off his game as well).

From the Washington Examiner:

During his fundraisers in California, President Obama explained that it was more important than ever to win a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives in the upcoming elections.

“She has been an extraordinary friend of mine, but more importantly, she’s a friend to working families all across the country each and every day,” Obama said about Pelosi. “I could not be prouder of her, and I expect that she is going to be once again the Speaker of the House — Nancy Pelosi. Love Nancy.”

Obama took time to flatter Pelosi in front of Democratic donors in her district.

“She is thoughtful, she’s visionary, she’s as tough as nails. She is practical. She never lets ideology cloud her judgment,” Obama said proudly.

Here are just a few examples of “Practical” Pelosi not letting her ideology get in the way of judgment:

And of course, we “don’t have a spending problem.”

At first I thought Nancy’s over the top SOTO display below was evidence of a sycophantic partisan ideologue, but it turned out that the Botox mixer in Pelosi’s office was hooked up to The Clapper, so I didn’t include it with the examples above:

Finally, longing for the mega-spending days of yore:

Obama explained to the audience that he still wanted to pass more legislation in his second term, including climate change, immigration reform and gun control – but hinted that Republicans were making it difficult. Pelosi, he explained, was the key to the success of his second term.

“Realistically, I could get a whole lot more done if Nancy Pelosi is Speaker of the House,” he said as the crowd applauded.

If Pelosi can somehow become Speaker again after the 2014 elections, just imagine how many jobs could be created constructing a new debt clock after the old one explodes due to overload.
