“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is publicly declaring what she`s been saying privately since after the election: Had Hillary Clinton won the presidency, the longtime Democratic leader was planning to ditch Congress.
`If Hillary had won, I was ready to go home,` Pelosi told reporters Friday, saying she now is motivated to stay to protect Obamacare. `If she were there, then I would not worry about that.`”
Nancy Pelosi is the poster girl for the desperate need for congressional term limits — Botox, hair dye and plastic surgery can`t disguise the fact that she is past her expiration date.
Pelosi,77, would have been forced to retire if she were the CEO of a corporation. Democracy has gone awry when a septuagenarian who has been in Congress since 1987 is the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives instead of a greeter at Walmart.
Now we learn that Pelosi would have retired if Hillary Clinton had won, that`s like the winner of a Spend a Night with Oprah Winfrey Contest, discovering that the consolation prize was spending a night with Rosie O`Donnell.
Politics is a dirty business, and voters always get the shaft, regardless who wins.
