Pelosi: "Partnership ... not partisanship." Oh, really?

Nancy Pelosi's pledge when elected Speaker of the House was to work with the Republican minority. She promised "partnership ... not partisanship."

Oh, really?

As reported by Rush, Hannity, Drudge, and others ...

After losing a string of embarrassing votes on the House floor because of procedural maneuvering, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to change the current House Rules to completely shut down the floor to the minority.

The Democratic Leadership is threatening to change the current House Rules regarding the Republican right to the Motion to Recommit or the test of germaneness on the motion to recommit.

This would be the first change to the germaneness rule since 1822.

In protest, the House Republicans are going to call procedural motions every half hour.

Partnership? Not partisanship?

After 185 years, Nancy Pelosi is redefining the word "partisanship."

H/T Spark It Up!
