Barack Obama praised Nancy Pelosi last night as one of the greatest Speakers in our nations history. Roll Call reported: Really?: When Speaker Pelosi took over Congress the federal deficit was $162 billion. When she exited in January 2011 it was at $1.29 Trillion dollars. Barack Obama tripled the national deficit in his first year after the stimulus passed. The Pelosi-Obama regime nearly matched it his second year. This year the deficit will be even higher. Spending was up 84% under Pelosi-Obama. The democrats doubled the unemployment rate from where it was when they took over Congress. Then theres this The federal government accumulated more new debt $3.22 trillion ($3,220,103,625,307.29)during the tenure of the Pelosi 111th Congress than it did during the first 100 Congresses combined. And, dont forget that she rammed through Obamas nationalized healthcare bill on a straight party-line vote against the voices of the American people. So it only makes sense that Obama believes that Pelosi is one of the greatest Speakers of all time. Obviously, American voters disagreed with Obama back in November....which is why she's no longer the Speaker.
