Post-politics, Nancy Pelosi should consider a career in stand-up comedy. Case in point: In an interview with USA Today, she called Barack Obama “one of the most practically non-partisan presidents” she’s ever seen.

Pelosi said:
“Here’s the thing – the president is one of the most practically non-partisan presidents I have seen in the White House. I’ve been there since Ronald Reagan, and he really is working to try to get some bipartisan agreement.
They’ve been working very hard to try to get the Senate consensus or some agreement on how we can avoid a shutdown of government but also how you can even remove all doubt that we’re not going to honor the full faith in credit of the United States of America by lifting the debt ceiling,”

Unbelievable. Although, on Planet Pelosi, things are generally viewed a bit “differently.” Anyway, I thought I’d dig up a few quotes to illustrate Obama’s “practically non-partisan” view of the GOP. Here he is in the final news conference of his first term in January:
“They have a particular vision about what government should and should not do. So they are suspicious about government’s commitments, for example, to make sure that seniors have decent health care as they get older. They have suspicions about Social Security. They have suspicions about whether government should make sure that kids in poverty are getting enough to eat, or whether we should be spending money on medical research.”
