Pelosi says she has 'every anticipation' of remaining Speaker (The Hill) 10-21-10

Is Nancy just feigning optimism about the Dems retaining a house majority, or has she been smoking the good stuff?  Maybe, Nancy knows something we don't.  Maybe, even as polls are showing a Republican land slide, Nancy knows that sample ballots are flooding the cemetaries of the country, and the dead are preparing to vote Dem.  Well, it is getting close to Halloween, and there were more than a few votes from beyond the grave in 2008.  

Pelosi says she has 'every anticipation' of remaining Speaker

By Michael O'Brien - 10/20/10 11:15 PM ET

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday evening that that she has "every anticipation" she'll remain in that position come next year. 

The top House Democrat expressed confidence that not only would Democrats retain control of the House, but also that the Democratic caucus would re-elect her as Speaker of the House next year.

"I have every anticipation that we'll come together in a similar format as we are now, with me as speaker of the House," Pelosi said on the "Charlie Rose Show," looking ahead to next year. 

The California Democrat's confidence comes as some Democrats facing tough races in conservative or centrist districts have distanced themselves from Pelosi, with a handful pledging to vote against her as Speaker, and a larger number committing to re-elect her. 

Pelosi, who like every other House member must win her own re-election battle on Nov. 2, said that representing her San Francisco area district was her "greatest honor." Being elected Speaker by her Democratic colleagues was a "privilege" by contrast, she said.

Ahem, no Nancy! LOL

Actually, you might want to consider retiring.  You might want to retire and reflect upon the past, starting with say, 2008 primaries... and a certain May 31, 2008.

Freespirit, Thank you for sharing that one! I had missed it.

Wonder what Nancy has been smoking lately. She's as clueless as the fraud.
