Dan Amira at NYMag‘s Daily Intel spots Madame Pelosi talking about SCOTUS and the ACA:
Nancy Pelosi’s political predictions seem at times to be based more on wishful thinking than on an objective assessment of reality. “One thing I know for sure is that Democrats will retain their majority in the House of Representatives,” she said in May of 2010, a few months before the Democrats lost their majority in the House of Representatives. Yesterday, at the Paley Center for Media, she predicted that the Supreme Court would rule in favor of Obamacare in a 6-3 vote.
As some of the commentors there point out, Pelosi is a damned smart & effective leader, and not given to throwing around numbers just to hear her own voice. The hour-long “PALEY100: Private Luncheon in Conversation with Nancy Pelosi” video starts slow — no teleprompters! — but it’s a fun listen when you’ve got the time. The healthcare portion starts around the 26.00 mark, and Pelosi’s prediction falls at 33.36… followed by a couple of rude, thoughtless, unserious cracks about the family-planning choices of those individuals most invested in the GOP War Against Women, which made me LOL-for-true.
