4575468At her weekly press conference this morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked about criticism from Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge over the massive stimulus package that the House passed yesterday.
"I don't speak to that," Pelosi said. "I'm the Speaker of the House. I don't get into the popular culture."
Politico has the video. As Glenn Thrush notes, the conservative pair "spent much of the week nitpicking her stimulus bill on issues ranging from STD prevention funding to cash for the re-sodding the National Mall."
Also this morning, Pelosi appeared on CBS' The Early Show, where she discussed the uniform Republican opposition to a bill that President Obama hoped would generate bipartisan support.
"Republicans asked for several things so that they could participate in the process, and we gave them all of the opportunities they asked for," Pelosi said.
She added: "...when you're failing on the policy argument, you talk about process. And after that, you talk about personalities. They are failing on the policy aspects."
