Keeping the heat turned up in Washington, D.C., House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D- Calif.) railed against President Bush on Thursday in an interview for CNN.
Pelosi said Bush has been a failure at all turns in his nearly eight years in the White House. Pelosi was responding to comments Bush made criticizing the Democratic-led Congress for going into the final month of the legislative session not having passed a single government spending bill.
"You know, God bless him, bless his heart, president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject," Pelosi remarked. She then hit Bush for "challenging Congress when we are trying to sweep up after his mess over and over and over again."
While Bush has a very meager 29 percent approval rating, Congress has no room to talk. A recent poll showed the country giving Congress an 18 percent approval backing.
Editor's Take: We've said numerous times on different venues that we have issues with President Bush. That being said, Pelosi only need look in the mirror at what failure is. The Democrats were swept into office in 2006, claiming they were going to fix things and get the country back on track. Funny, if that were the case, wouldn't their approval rating be a little higher? Both sides need to cool the rhetoric and get down to doing the one job they were elected for - serving the American people.
