    She also said that the House and the public would have 48 hours to read the stimulus bill before a vote.

    Contrary to popular sentiment in places like this, Pelosi is not stupid. She may come back to the issue later. But she rightly has more pressing problems without picking a hard fight over something that is not going to create jobs now.

    Smile AG Holder Doesn't Get It

    I e-mailed Pelosi this morning and suggested that Holder should leave "policy" to Congress and the EO. I also suggested she take him to the woodshed (in so many terms).

    She must have agreed with me

    It rankles me when somebody at that level shoots off at the mouth way above their pay grade....

    Looks like Pelosi wants to remain Speaker more than she wants to ban guns. The memory of the '94 election lives long.

    Politicians are bought. If she's not interested in an AWB, it probably just means she got bought by our side.

    If they do push the ban it probably will be after2010. I think Holder bringing it up was for 2 purposes, 1 to appease the Mexican government, and 2 to test the waters. He threw that out and everyone contacted their Represenatives and Senators, easy poll, now they know how people feel.

    i really don't know what to think of this...it's always weird when someone who may consider you as an enemy wants to give you a gift...makes me think of a little horse the Greeks built on the shores of Troy...

    IMHO, Pelossi and the Dems have much bigger and more important issues to address than gun control - issues that require a large consensus of Americans to support if they have any chance of being more than a left wing-democratic pipe dream. While the Dems do not care about antagonizing the Right, they are not going to antagonize the Center (which resists gun control) anytime soon. After they have their stimulus and the changes they want on energy, taxes, health care, etc, they may very well turn to gun control, but not before then.

    The Speaker gave a flat “no” when asked if she had talked to administration officials about the ban.
    She didn't say she didn't favor it. Her knickers are just wadded up because she wasn't ask her opinion first.

    No, that is a little too far.
