Response to still_one (Reply #201)

205. Agreed. If they don't solve social security by raising the cap they are idiots.

 

Because Pelosi has said a number of things over the years, the confusion is understandable. This is particularly true when a statement isn't accompanied by explanatory text. I overlooked that.

Basically, with respect to my paraphrase of Pelosi's 2006 statement after the overwhelming Democratic victory, Pelosi rejected the views of other House Democrats and the public generally with the following:

"House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi promised Wednesday (in Nov 2006) that when her party takes over, the new majority will not attempt to remove President Bush from office, despite earlier pledges to the contrary from others in the caucus."

" 'I have said it before and I will say it again: Impeachment is off the table,' Pelosi, D-Calif., said during a news conference."
