Washington DC: President Obama held his Health Care Reform Summit at the Blair House. At the same time the Winter Olympics speed skating competition was being held in Vancouver Canada.
Democratic House Speaker Pelosi was her same old stubborn self at the meeting, pushing her own agenda, covering her arse and not debating. The president was really miffed! He became even more miffed, when he discovered Ms. Pelosi was watching the Winter Olympics on her Blackberry.
During the lunch break President Obama called out Ms. Pelosi, as to why she wasn't interacting with the other participants. Ms. Pelosi indicated she was watching her old college roommate Swedish speed skater Ivana Phuque competing for a medal and besides I hate Republicans! The president said "you don't look Swedish!"
After the summit the president called House Speaker Pelosi into the White House Oval Office and offered her the job as the US Ambassador to Sweden. She said "why would I do that as I am the Empress of the House?" The president said "because I have pictures of you and Ivana Phuque."
On the way out Ms. Pelosi passed Senate Majority Leader Reid entering the oval office. Mr. Reid and the president had a similar conversation to the one with Ms. Pelosi. The president asked for Democratic cooperation with the Republicans to get a health care reform bill on his desk before the 2010 mid-term elections?" Mr. Reid said "why?" The president said "because I have pictures of you and Ivana Phuque and if you don't compromise I will appoint you US Ambassador to Tonga."
President Obama announced on national television Ms. Pelosi's accepting the appointment as US Ambassador to Sweden, including her ability to speak Swedish. The president then apologized to Sweden.
