Why is Nancy Pelosi so...

...flustered in this interview from Sunday?
On the eve of the Democratic Convention.

Nancy Pelosi likes to point the finger at Republicans and blame all of our woes on the war in Iraq. She also thinks that that with the addition of Joe Biden, to the Presidential ticket, that the Democrats now have a clear National Security policy and Biden is their great messenger. I guess that says that Barack Obama and Congress didn't have a policy, prior to Biden's addition.

But... 'Change is good', right?

Here's more food for thought about the economy, courtesy of a viral e-mail I received...

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years and in the first six the economy was fine. A little over one year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%
4) The Dow Jones hit a record high, 14,000 +
5) Americans were buying new cars, taking cruises, taking vacations overseas and living well

But Democrats wanted 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes America got change all right; short changed is more like it. Since then:

1) Consumer confidence has plummeted
2) Gasoline was over $4 a gallon this Summer
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase)
4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 trillion dollars and prices are still dropping
5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure
6) The Dow is probing a low 11386.25 (at the time of this posting) and $2.5 trillion dollars has evaporated from their stocks, bonds and mutual funds investment portfolios

Yes; in 2006 Democrats voted for ‘CHANGE’ and they sure as hell got it.

Congress has done nothing but shoot down everything the White House has tried to do to correct the course of the economy and their approval rating is at a low 17%, right now.

'Change is good', right?

Pelosi, in the same 'Meet the Press' interview above, also now says she is prepared to drill in the United States and release the oil reserve. On the eve of the Democratic Convention.
