Video: Nancy Pelosi Positively Giddy Over Election Night Results

Gateway Pundit reports that Nancy Pelosi rejoiced today saying, “We won last night.”  He notes:

They lost the Virginia gubernatorial race by 18 points in a state Barack Obama won by 6 points last year.
They lost the New Jersey gubernatorial race by 4 points in a state Barack Obama won by 15 points last year.

And she’s claiming a victory for Dems?

I had to find the video and hear it for myself:

“From our perspective, we won last night,” the California Democrat told reporters during a Wednesday photo op. “We had one race that we were engaged in, it was in northern New York, it was a race where a Republican has held the seat since the Civil War. And we won that seat. So, from our standpoint, no, a candidate was victorious who supports health care reform, and his remarks last night said this was a victory for health care reform and other initiatives for the American people.”

It’s an ominous sign that she sees the NY-23 race as “a victory for health-care reform and other initiatives”, never mind the fact that Democrat Bill Owens campaigned against the public option. This is all the more reason to answer Michelle Bachmann’s call and head out to DC, tomorrow to protest ObamaCare if at all possible. You can also protest at your home state’s capital, *or your member’s district office if a trip to DC is too much.

As for her bogus claim that the Owens win was a first for a Dem in that district “since the Civil War”…Please – are all Democrats using Daily Kos talking points, now?

It turns out Democrat Michael R. McNulty represented NY-23 from 1989-1993.

By the way:

I didn’t mean to ignore the Michael Steele portion of the video. I just didn’t find anything noteworthy about it.


At least in that video clip. But George Stephanopoulos is reporting that at that same news conference:

Steele Throws Elbow to Palin, Pawlenty on NY-23

But he also seemed to deliver a bit of a rebuke to potential 2012 presidential aspirants in his party such as Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, and Rick Santorum, all of whom immersed themselves in the NY-23 special House race with their endorsements and support for conservative Doug Hoffman who came up short last night.

“If you don’t live in the district, you don’t vote there, your opinion doesn’t matter very much,” Steele said while assessing the intra-party strife that resulted in a Democratic pick up of a seat held by Republicans since the Civil War.


*I added “your member’s district office” as an alternative to going to DC, as that is what Congressional Republicans have been suggesting, today, if you can’t make it to DC.

  1. I thank God I don’t see things from Pelosi’s perspective. I’m looking forward to assisting in unemploying some others in 2010 and then the big one in 2012.


  2. I telephoned nazi Nancy’s office this afternoon, and per usual was treated rudely by the snotty staffer who answered the phone. I then telephoned Hoyer’s office to let him know my thoughts. When the dems lose people like me (former lifelong liberal democrat) they are in trouble. I was never a Reagan republican, in short, I was a naive fool, but no more. I am committed to not only voting against democrats, but to campaign against them. My number one passion at present is to get the word out that the democrat party has regressed to it’s shameful former status as the party of slavery and Jim Crow. I want the dem party relegated to history, it’s majority voted out of office and deprived of any and all political office and power.


  3. What a nutball Queen Nancy is. I just talked to Mom (parents live in NJ,) and she voted for Christie. She is a lifelong registered Democrat. She has never voted for a Republican. Ever. And she said lots of her friends did the same.


  4. I’m positive, you can build a for proffit blog, and collect more than maintenance fees.

    No doubt in my mind whatsoever.

  6. Nancy is a real nutcase! When will she finally understand that we don’t respect what comes out of her mouth. This woman needs to realize that she has lost power! Hopefully this democratic loss will continue in 2012 in the White House.
