Democrats haven't necessarily gotten the credit they're due for the work they've done the last two years, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said.Nancy Pelosi may be the most unpopular politician in America, and clearly the most clueless.
Pelosi, in the middle of a tough campaign to defend Democrats' majority in the House and her own speakership, seemed to echo the complaint voiced by other Democrats that obstacles have made it difficult for the party's message to get through.
"You have all those forces at work, pouring millions of millions of dollars into the media, and now into the campaigns to mischaracterize everything that we did," Pelosi said in an interview with Politics Daily, video of which was posted on Monday. "So that's that. It's up to us to go out there. I'm very confident; our members know why they voted for what they did."
"But you're right, we haven't really gotten the credit for what we have done, but we will take it to the voters and have a Democratic majority to follow through on it," the Speaker added.
Pelosi's remarks reflect a growing trend of frustration expressed by Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill and at the White House. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said last week that Democrats' biggest failure in this election has been to not adequately sell their accomplishments to voters, while White House press secretary Robert Gibbs joked to the New York Times that he hadn't "been at a policy-problem meeting in 20 months."

Pelosi: 'We Haven't Really Gotten the Credit for What We Have Done'
Memo to Nancy Pelosi: You are getting credit for what you've done. You're getting credit for helping drive the economy into the ground, you're getting credit for 22% unemployment in your state, you're getting credit for shoving ObamaCare down our throats and you're getting credit for saddling us with trillions of dollars of debt. Which is why you're about to be crushed at the polls next Tuesday.
