Explaining the book’s poor performance, a source close to her was quoted as saying:
"The speaker was pre-occupied with house business last week. She has now turned her focus to promoting this extraordinary book...doing local signings and speeches. I think we'll see an uptick."
So, are we to take from that that before this summer recess she'd led Congress to accomplish so much, she now deserves time to promote her book to enhance sales??? Not only is the premise wrong – Congress has accomplished nothing – but the ensuing statement is, too.
Partisanship aside, I think we can all agree that Pelosi should get back to work in Washington to deal with our energy crisis. Book sales are the last thing she should be concerned about.
At least, we now see crystal clear the priorities of the Speaker of the House. No wonder she’s leading what is known as the "Do-Nothing Congress."
