Pelosi nostalgic for George W. Bush [VIDEO]

WASHINGTON — During a Wednesday talk at an event honoring her 25 years of service in the House of Representatives, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi highlighted some of her favorite and most memorable moments, largely concentrating on achievements made with George W. Bush and making no mention of anything she was proud of or accomplished with President Barack Obama.

Pelosi gushed about how Bush is “really a lovely man.”

“We worked with President Bush on many issues,” she continued. “We worked with him on his version of the stimulus package. … We worked with him on [the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief] PEPFAR — that was a great thing that President Bush did. … And we worked with him on probably the most unpopular bill that anybody will ever vote for ever — TARP.”
