Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi shows that being in the minority is harder than she thought as she tries to advance the theory that elections really aren’t that important after all.

Pelosi took a shot at the Tea Party with her call to the Republicans to “take back your party”  showing that she doesn’t understand how much the political landscape has changed.

As for talking about shared values Pelosi must have forgotten what she said about the Republicans  a few years ago:

We must draw clear distinctions between our vision of the future and the extreme policies put forward by the Republicans. We cannot allow Republicans to pretend they share our values and then legislate against those values without consequence.

Sounds like Chuck Schumer.

Of course Pelosi and her fellow Democrats were singing a different tune in 2006 when they took control of Congress and in 2008 when Barack Obama won the presidency calling it a mandate which sure sounds to me like elections matter.
