Pelosi: Approval Numbers in the Range of the Revolting Newt?

Monique Chartier


Nearly half of all Americans — 48 percent — disapprove of how the California Democrat she is handling her job as Speaker of the House in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released Monday, while 39 percent approve of her performance.

* * *

That puts her approval rating at roughly the levels Newt Gingrich had in his first year as Speaker of the House. (Back in 1995, Gingrich's approval rating was 37 percent; by 1997 — at the same point in his speakership that Pelosi is now — that had dropped to just 25 percent.)

Newt was up against the biggest spin machine of all time - Clinton & Co. in the Whitehouse and a press against his every move.

Theoretically, Pelosi should have those forces working in her favor.

Sobering thought:

V.P. Joe Biden is next in line for the presidency.

Disturbing thought:

Speaker Pelosi is next after Biden.

Really, really scary thought . . . guess who is next in line after the Speaker?

"Sheets" Byrd!

No love for Pelosi here. She was all talk and no action about getting the U.S. out of Iraq, so I find it hard to sympathize with her current predicament.
