RUSH: Well, CNN was the first to do it. A month ago, CNN declared the Democrats have won the House because of one of their polls. Nancy Pelosi is declaring victory in the battle of the House.
She was on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night and said, “Up until today I wouldn’t have said, ‘If the election were held today, we will win.’ But what I’m saying now is, ‘We will win! We will win! We will win the House.'” Nancy Pelosi, predicting the House has already been won by the Democrats.
So no need for you Democrats to vote now.
RUSH: So it’s over. Nancy Pelosi on television last night on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on CBS, I guess. They said that we’re gonna win. She wouldn’t have said it a month ago, she wouldn’t have said it two or three weeks, although I think she did. CNN certainly did. But she said last night, “We’re gonna win. We’re gonna win.” What do you think the message is to… What do you think the message is to Democrat voters when the Speaker of the House-in-waiting says that it’s over, that we win?
I think it says, “Yeah, don’t worry about it, Democrats. We got this. I mean, it’s over. You Democrats probably don’t need to vote. It’s that much in the bag. I mean, the Speaker of the House-in-waiting is already saying it!” CNN now happily reporting this. “Democrats Will Win Control of the House!” (laughing) That’s what it says on their graphic. Pelosi: “Democrats Will Win Control of the House!” Well, we’ll see if there is this thing called karma.
But she’s not the first. John King (who is doing the reporting right now on Pelosi saying they’ll win the House) also said the Democrats had already won the House, according to one of their polls about a month ago.
