Obama says his agenda will put Pelosi back in charge
February 07, 2013 | 1:49PM
President Barack Obama told House Democrats that his aggressive political agenda can help Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi regain the speakership of the House.
“It won’t be smooth, it won’t be simple, there will be frustrations, there will be times when you guys will be mad at me …. [but] as a byproduct of doing that good work, I would expect that Nancy Pelosi will be speaker again soon,” he said during a lunchtime speech at the Leesburg, Va., summit of the Democrats’ congressmen and congresswomen.
He outlined that agenda in his speech, telling the House members he would push for increased taxes, for curbs on guns and for an rewrite of immigration law.
