Video - Pelosi on Obama's Biblical Patience Over Debt Talks - July 14, 2011
We are purposely not covering the debt ceiling soap opera very closely, but this was too good to pass up as Nancy grabbed the microphone on Thursday:
"I want to commend the president – I have never seen – Job is no place compared to this president in terms of patience. He [Job] doesn’t even begin because this president has demonstrated a level of patience, not only during the meetings but as respect, respectful of the suggestions that are made by all parties at the meeting, in his preparation for the meeting, and his coming back to address concerns that are expressed by others."
Pelosi also said she is “almost too busy” to continue listening to what is going on in the debt limit meetings.
"Day in and day out, the president has respectfully listened, accommodated, engaged in conversation in a very informed way and he is the president of the United States," she said. "I know he’s busy. I myself am almost too busy to continue listening to some of the things that are going on in that room. So I know he must be very busy. But he has treated everyone there with great dignity. The only thing I hope he doesn’t ask us to do is go to Camp David. That goes beyond the pale. Driving down the street for these meetings is one thing --"
And what he said Monday afternoon at his press conference:
