Nancy Pelosi: Blame George W. Bush, bash the Chamber of Commerce

With her party down in the polls and poised to lose potentially dozens of seats in the mid terms, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will use one of her last major speeches before the elections to hit two favorite Democratic targets: George W. Bush and the Chamber of Commerce.

“We have lost millions of jobs to outsourcing under President Bush. We don’t intend to repeat that policy – no matter how much money the Chamber of Commerce dumps into our elections,” Pelosi plans to tell the Women of Steel Convention in Pittsburgh on Monday, according to prepared remarks.

Democrats in recent weeks have started ripping the right-leaning Chamber in recent weeks, claiming they are dumping foreign money into American congressional elections — a charge the organization has denied.

Pelosi’s speech Monday is one of her highest profile appearances in the run-up to the midterm election. A group of her Democratic colleagues have backed away from her, saying they wouldn’t support her for speaker should the party keep the majority. Pelosi’s October has largely consisted of fundraising, and her public campaigning schedule has been lighter. She’ll be in New York Tuesday, raising money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Pelosi also plans to push the Democrats’ “Make it in America” mantra.

“’Make it in America’ is our rallying cry,” she plans to say, according to prepared remarks. “The USW has been our partner. President [Leo] Gerard has been one of our most eloquent allies. And the Women of Steel demonstrate every day that when we ‘make it in America,’ our workers have a chance to make it in America.”
