    The Obama administration's efforts to find common ground with congressional Republicans ran into two pockets of resistance Tuesday: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader John Boehner.

    At a closed-door White House session, Pelosi expressed skepticism over an administration proposal to offer tax breaks to businesses that create new jobs. And Boehner urged President Barack Obama to abandon much of the Democrats' current agenda on the ground that it's killing jobs by creating uncertainty in the markets.

    The White House session with congressional leaders was supposed to be a step toward bipartisanship, with a focus on jobs. But Pelosi made it clear that there's disagreement, even among Democrats.

    I gotta feeling that Pelosi has been the queen bee just long enough to believe she is really invincible. Her ego will not allow any deviation from total capitulation to her wishes.

    Hope she maintains this stance, 'cuz as ole Sol said, "Pride goes before destruction."
    And as another (??) said, "Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make proud."

    Hang in there Pelosi, don't let us peons rain on your royal parade!!!

    I know it seems impossible, but it appears Pelosi is even more economically illiterate than Obama.
