    Pelosi delivered - The Week

    History will accord Pelosi an unprecedented scale of achievement for a House speaker. The breakthroughs of the past two years bear her indelible stamp. She has been not only the master of the House, but a moving force in changing America for generations to come — and despite their fulminations, the GOP that has demonized her will not succeed in undoing those changes.

    It was a legislative tour de force from someone who plainly believes that the purpose of politics goes beyond serving the self-interest of politicians. From the stimulus that averted a second Great Depression to Wall Street reform to the transformation and expansion of college student aid, Pelosi and the president have written more landmark legislation than anyone in nearly half a century. Majority Leader Harry Reid did his best in the sclerotic Senate, and at critical moments change squeaked by the Republican blockade.

    I agree with you on almost everything you post, RW, but Pelosi needs to retire. She is and has been detrimental to Obama's Presidency and his agenda. This article wants to give Pelosi credit for the Healthcare bill and that is fine, as long long as history remembers what the Healthcare legislation COULD HAVE BEEN as opposed to the watered down bullshit piece of legislation we ended up with. Just my .02.

    She delivered a drop in ethics and transparancy... despite her pledge to run the 'most ethical and transparent congress in the history of the United States'.

    She failed to drain the swamp as promised, but no big deal as the voters did it for her on Tuesday.

    But, yeah, she was successful in her job. She won the battle, but then lost the war. She's no longer speaker and 60-something of her comrades got their asses kicked to the curb. And now Republicans are going to redistrict the hell out of Dims that will hurt them for years to come.

    So, hell yes, celebrate Nancy's great accomplishments. I sure am. Way to go, babe!

    Pelosi Resume

    Passed legislation that prevented the country from entering another Depression
    Passed th most comprehensive Healthcare legislation in US History
    Passed significant financial reform legislation
    Passed Credit Card Bill of Rights

    Will any Republicans out there care to post what Denny Hasterts accomplishments were?

    Other than Gridlock, what do you expect Boehner to accomplish ?

    Pelosi and her fellow Democrats in the House were willing to jeopardize their careers to pass esential legislation. They knew the window of opportunity would be short and did what was necessary to pass Healthcare and the Stimulus packages

    "You have to pass it before you can read it." Tells me all I need to know about Pelosi.

    Agree.

    That they didn't care the majority of Americans disagreed with what they were doing is why they got their asses kicked. What was seen as essential by them was seen as wasteful and harmful by others. That's the way the ball bounces some times.

    A future one term president once said...Elections have consequences.
