Pelosi Confident Democrats Will Retain House

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi projected an air of supreme confidence as she campaigned in San Francisco Wednesday, refusing to entertain even the possibility that she could lose her speakership on November 2.

Most political experts think the Republicans are poised to regain control of the House of Representatives, but the San Francisco Democrat has not given up hope that her party can confound the pundits.

“I would rather be in our position than the Republicans’ position,” she said during a campaign stop at the McRoskey Mattress Company’s factory on Potrero Hill.

Pelosi praised the company’s 111 year, made-in-America history.

“We wish more people would stay here and make it in America and keep jobs here, not send them overseas,” she said.

Jobs and the slow economic recovery have dominated the campaign season. Republicans have tried to cast Democratic accomplishments such as the health care law as imposing onerous requirements on the small businesses responsible for most job creation.

Pelosi lashed out at corporate-backed groups running ads on behalf of Republicans, accusing them of accepting financing from overseas that gives “new meaning to the term ‘Buy American.’

“They want to buy the country. Special interest, corporate money wants to buy America,” she said.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has denied accepting foreign money for domestic campaigns.

    Just another sign of supreme ignorance and arrogance. Go home Nancy and let people that listen to the people man the ship. You have done enough to start the sinking of of our GREAT country.

  • Nancy

    What is this woman smoking? Why can’t she just accept the fact that Democrats ARE the creatures from the swamp she was suppose to drain. As usual, We the People have to do her job.
