House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took the rare step Wednesday of giving a marathon speech supporting Democrats’ attempts to legalize the status of young immigrant “dreamers,” in a bid to pressure Republicans to act. Her more than eight-hour speech ranked as the longest given by a member of the House of Representatives in at least a century, possibly ever, focusing on an issue that has dominated the Democratic agenda in recent months. But it also came as her caucus began three days of closed-door meetings to craft a 2018 agenda that can win wider appeal in November’s elections.

It sounds like Pepsi is starting to worry about November. They are really counting on these illegal alien “valedictorian” amnesty votes for their “blue wave”.

Schumer & Pelosi had to know about the train crash THE NEXT DAY with all those Republicans on board.

Kristol and Rothchild did.

“Times up” meant something

I think Pelosi thought she would be in charge at the end of that day.

But it also came as her caucus began three days of closed-door meetings to...

That's all they do.

Maybe she could have read the Bible starting at Genesis. That would have been something; she’d be there until the next next election for pres.

if you can call what Nancy does “talking”

She hasn’t been able to string together a coherent sentence since the 80’s

They are so desparate to make it sound historic that they can’t be bothered to do basic research. 8 hours isn’t even in the top 5.

the record is 24 hours, 18 minutes when a Democrat senator protested the civil rights act.
