Nancy Pelosi to visit Little Rock

Posted By on Wed, Apr 24, 2013 at 11:02 AM

Has anybody been more reviled by Arkansas Republicans, other than President Obama, than House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi? Don't think so. (Remember when Tim "Pipeline" Griffin ads said, "We have to get rid of Nancy Pelosi ... now." Or Republican chair Doyle Webb on the Fire Pelosi bus?)

But now that a majority of Republican legislators have approved implementation of Obamacare in Arkansas, maybe some of them will want to turn out to cheer one of the architects of passage of the plan to funnel billions of Obamacare money into Arkansas.

She's set to speak at noon Thursday, May 2 as part of the Clinton School lecture series. The first announcement puts the appearance at the Clinton School, but surely they'll need to move to a bigger room, what with all the new Republican admirers of her policy triumph who'll want to attend.
