Pelosi: Mitt Romney is not going to be President of the United States

Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to even entertain the idea of working with Mitt Romney to solve the nation’s problems on Sunday.

Why? Because “Mitt Romney’s not going to be President of the United States,” she told CNN’s Candy Crowley, bursting out into laugher. “I think everybody knows that, right?”

The House Minority Leader made the comment as part of a pre-taped interview with Crowley on CNN’s “State of the Union” that aired Sunday morning, in which she discussed her party’s chances of retaking the majority in Congress and her relationship with sitting President and Democratic Party leader Barack Obama.

Pelosi charged that if Republicans keep the majority in the House of Representatives, Democrats hold the Senate and President Obama is reelected this fall “you’ll see more of the same” throughout the next two years because the stalemate in Washington will continue because of “Republican obstruction of President Obama’s jobs bills and whatever he was advancing – obstruction is their agenda.

“They don’t really believe in a public role,” she said, misconstruing Republicans’ quest for a reduction in government as a quest for the elimination of government services.

“I have always said to my Republicans, whom I know – ‘Take back your party,’ because this wing of the party or this over the edge crowd that is in charge . . . taking charge of . . . wagging the dog in Congress is never going to cooperate because they do not believe in a public roll. Clean air, clean water, public safety, public education, public transportation, public health, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security – they don’t believe in it, and that’s what their budget is about, and that’s what we vote on the floor almost every day.”

She said she was able to find “common ground” with former President George W. Bush, as she is able to with President Barack Obama, shaking off suggestions by Crowley that Obama is not as strong of a leader as former President Bill Clinton.

“Make no mistake – President Obama is a great leader. He has great vision for our country. He knows the issues. He has a plan,” she claimed.

“This President has listened, spent time, respects the opinions of the Republicans to an extent, that I think, I wish one of them would come up with a new idea because he has more patience listening to them than I do,” she said, further revealing her disdain for her Republican peers in Congress.

    She just is an Obama obsessed person, that’s why she says “Mitt Romney is not going to be President of the United States”.

    Nancy is living in an alternate reality, seems so spaced out.

    The same Bush that they keep blaming everything thing on? The same Bush that they filibustered his lower court appointees? The same Bush that “Her Thighness” went on a screaming rampage about being able to criticize the President during a war —- which a good amount of them voted for? It’s because of nonsense like this that makes me despise the Dems so much. Their own obstructionism is only a distant memory. The poor saps have taken advantage of American’s forgetfulness.

    Stretch needs to buy enough tissue now, because there will be much weeping and gnashing of teeth in November. By the Dems, course.

    Could it be that Romney won’t be the next president because he’s a serial liar, he’s spineless, he’s an empty vessel where he doesn’t even know where he stands on issues whereby they change every 24 hours or so, embraces Paul Ryan’s policy of eliminating Medicare along with many other social programs worth about $4.5 billion, then hand that off in the form of tax cuts for corporations; and instead of forming his party as Ronald Reagan did, the fringe group within the party has formed him.? Could be.
