The incompetent crone who is Speaker of the House makes a spittle-spewing, vituperative, divisive and denigrating (of Republicans) speech BEFORE the vote. This speech is so out of line and over the top that 40% of the DEMOCRATS decide to vote against the bailout package and somehow this is the REPUBLICANS fault?

Was Mrs. Pelosi aware, when she became (in her words) "the most powerful woman in the world" that she would actually have to work with the other side and even accomplish things for the entire country - not just her safe little fiefdom in San Francisco? Was she aware that leadership was required in this position? Was she aware that her job was not to go flapping around the Middle East pursuing her own demented version of foreign policy, but rather to shepherd actual legislation through the U.S. House of Representatives and to do so in as bipartisan a manner as she possible could? Does this dippy bitch have a clue - about anything?

If she hasn't set the cause of so-called feminism back about 100 years, I'd be greatly surprised.

Vote on 11/4 - early and often - and see to it that these self-serving, hubris ridden idiots are all ridden out of town on a rail! Including and even especially San Fran Nan!

the assertion by Republican leaders in the House that as many as a dozen of their members who were leaning toward voting for the legislation ended up voting against it because of Pelosi’s speech is extraordinary.

Let’s see if we have this straight: whichever side of the issue you were on, yesterday’s vote was considered one of the most important ones members of Congress will ever face. Many respected voices argued that an economic catastrophe might follow in the wake of its defeat. Opponents of the legislation considered it a terrible violation of free-market principles. The stakes could not be higher.

After the legislation was defeated and only one-third of House Republicans backed the plan, John Boehner and Roy Blunt took to the microphones and indicated that Pelosi’s speech had been so alienating and offensive that a significant number of House Republicans changed their mind and voted against the bill.

Can they be serious? Do they realize how foolish and irresponsible they sound? On one of the most important votes they will ever cast, insisting “the speech made me do it” is lame and adolescent. The vote, after all, was on the legislation, not the speech. And to say that a dozen members of your caucus voted not out of principle but out of pique is a terrible indictment of them. I hope we learn the names of these delicate figures whose feelings were so bruised and abused.

I have been defending House Republicans for a week against friends who thought they were acting in an irresponsible fashion. I argued they were people with admirable free-market principles who were simply trying to improve legislation and have their voices heard, something to which they were certainly entitled. And I thought they made the bill better than it was. But yesterday’s vote, and the excuses that followed the vote, have made me reassess my judgment. Watching Boehner, Blunt, and Cantor blame the outcome on the Pelosi speech was an embarrassment.

We are in one of the most dispiriting moments I have ever witnessed in Washington, when political authority seems to be collapsing all around us. House Republicans have contributed to this, and it’s a shame.

The "speech" was just the latest in a long series of wholly vicious and partisan rants by this incredibly nasty and incompetent virago. When you consider that 40% of her OWN DEMOCRATIC house members voted "no" - there is no "cover" needed by the Republicans who actually gave more support than I expected.

Mrs. Pelosi is the Speaker of the House of Representatives and only a few heartbeats away from the Presidency in case of something catastrophic. As such, she is OBLIGATED to behave in a much more bipartisan manner than other Democrats in the House of Representatives since, in a very real way, she must at least consider the interests of people whose political views are opposite to her own. Remember, this bitch was elected from ONE district in San Francisco and she's screwing with the financial health of people all over this nation. Playing political games (and she WAS) in that context is akin to - actually over the line into - treasonous behavior!

There is a time for politics and there is a time for statesmanship. Nancy Pelosi doesn't know the difference.

OK, Pelosi is an incredibly nasty and incompetent virago. Grow up and get over it. It's still irresponsible and adolescent to base your vote on a critical issue on how much you're pouting about what the mean lady said.
