Rep. Nancy Pelosi: ‘To My Republican Friends, Take Back Your Party’

Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi gave a speech at Tufts University in Massachusetts where she shared some “friendly” advice with the opposing side in Washington. Clearly frustrated with the lengthy and acrimonious budget fight, Pelosi said “elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do” and warned that it would be problematic for the country if both parties do not have shared values.

Pelosi challenged Republicans:

“To my Republican friends: take back your party. So that it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values about the education of our children, the growth of our economy, how we defend our country, our security and civil liberties, how we respect our seniors.”

Might the old saying “elections have consequences” be replaced by Pelosi’s new version of “it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election?” Well until it does, Pelosi also stated “I think that President Obama is what is right for our country.”
