RUSH: Wednesday in San Francisco, the Queen Bee, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House, was interviewed by the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board. Here’s some of what she said.
PELOSI: If a resolution is not appropriate, then it remains for the credentials committee at the convention to resolve it. Then, earlier than that, I will step in, because we cannot take this fight to the convention. It must be over before then. I believe it will be over in two weeks.
RUSH: Nancy Pelosi is saying, ‘Don’t worry. I’m taking Hillary outta here in two weeks. This isn’t going to the convention. If it does, I’m going to stop it before it gets there, and Hillary is toast.’ The night before in Billings, Montana, Mrs. Clinton said this, which might have partially inspired what you just heard from Pelosi.
HILLARY: We have not gone through this exciting, unprecedented, historical election only to lose. So you have to ask yourself, ‘Who is the stronger candidate?’ And based on every analysis of every bit of research and every poll that’s been taken, and every state that a Democrat has to win, I am the stronger candidate against John McCain. (cheers)
RUSH: Yay, Operation Chaos! And it will rear its head again tomorrow at the rules and bylaws committee meeting in Washington. Pelosi wasn’t through. She also said this to the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board.
PELOSI: Some of the success of the surge is at the goodwill of the Iranians. They decided in Basra when the fighting would end. They negotiated that cessation of hostilities. The Iranians!
RUSH: It’s unbelievable, exactly right. Well, why are you surprised? Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have been waving the white flag of surrender in Iraq for over a year now, and, yes, you heard right. She is crediting the Iranians for our victory because they stopped their hostilities, and she wants the Iranians to get the credit. This is how invested in defeat and in the incompetence of the US military the Democrat Party is. We are going to playing this sound bite of hers over and over again.
