Speaker Pelosi Thinks a Little Credit Is Due

. . . to her Democrats:

Democrats haven’t necessarily gotten the credit they’re due for the work they’ve done the last two years, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said.

Pelosi, in the middle of a tough campaign to defend Democrats’ majority in the House — as well as her own Speakership — seemed to echo a complaint voiced by other Democrats, that obstacles have made it difficult for the party’s message to get through.

“You have all those forces at work, pouring millions of millions of dollars into the media, and now into the campaigns to mischaracterize everything that we did,” Pelosi said in an interview with Politics Daily, video of which was posted Monday. “So that’s that. It’s up to us to go out there. I’m very confident; our members know why they voted for what they did.

“But you’re right, we haven’t really gotten the credit for what we have done, but we will take it to the voters and have a Democratic majority to follow through on it,” the Speaker added.

Over the weekend, Speaker Pelosi also said of the election that “Everything was going great” for Democrats until “all of a sudden secret money from God knows where — because they won’t disclose it — is pouring in.”

Such are the dangers of having the most powerful Democrat in the legislature come out of San Francisco. She still really, really, really doesn’t get what’s happening.
