Nancy Pelosi is convinced that Republicans will not make significant gains come November. Or to put it in positive form: Democrats will hold on to a House majority.
In fact, so convinced is she of sweeping Democratic victories that on Wednesday she told PBS’s Charlie Rose, “I believe that it would be very difficult for the Republicans to take over the House. Let me tell you right here and now that I would rather be in our position right now than theirs.”
Rose was almost speechless: “Why do you believe that when the numbers look — I mean, 95 House races are in play, they say.”
Pelosi’s response? “Well, who are ‘they?’”
The exchange was so shocking that the liberal New York Magazine couldn’t even keep quiet. On Thursday, the magazine’s website posted the above quote with a simple headline: “Denial Is Just a River in Egypt to Nancy Pelosi.”
