Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hands the speaker's gavel to incoming House Speaker John Boehner after Boehner was elected Speaker on the opening day of the 112th United States Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, January 5, 2011. Republicans are t
There there, John.
Sure, Nancy Pelosi might look and sound like the sweet little grandmother she says she is, but daaaaaaaaaamn, can she pack a punch. Asked on CNN about John Boehner's ludicrous claim that President Barack Obama is too weak to stand up to the liberals of his own party, Grandma Pelosi responded:
"I don’t understand that because he’s a gentleman, the speaker is [...] But that remark was -- I mean, it was almost as if he was projecting onto the president his lack of being able to pass any bill that created jobs since he became speaker."

CNN's Chris Cuomo clarified: "You think the speaker is projecting onto the president his own failure?"

"Exactly," Pelosi said. "Because he hasn't been able to deal with his own party. There isn't anything that he passed that we haven't' delivered the votes for him that has been job-creating."
