Nancy Pelosi is calling Republicans “unpatriotic.”
It’s because the Republican bailout negotiators failed to show up to a meeting the Democrats had scheduled yesterday. So Pelosi called a press conference to tell the world they’re “unpatriotic.”
And they tell us McCain is the one losing his grip…
Nor is that the only thing Speaker Pelosi is losing her grip on; her party is slipping away from her as well. Or so it would seem in light of her announcement that despite the majority she is supposed to lead, she’s failed to muster the votes to pass Congress’s version of Treasury’s bailout bill without the backing of the House Republicans demanding checks on the plan. Will she be the last to realize how unpopular this bill is as it stands? She’d better hop to it, seeing that she now demands a plan by tonight.
