If I didn't know better, I would have thought Nancy Pelosi was retiring from the ring after taking one to many shots to the head.
This is what she had to say at her last official news conference as Speaker of the House:
In the land where facts mean more than delusion, here are the facts:
When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi's Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 - a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi's four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010.
