Overview

Why Is Nancy Pelosi the Most Dangerous Woman in America?

Most people see Pelosi exactly the way she wants them to: a cultured San Franciscan politician from an esteemed family. But underneath the Chanel suit and Mikimoto pearls is a true political boss-as in T weed. Don't be fooled by her image as a caring, grandmotherly public servant. Nancy Pelosi is all business.

She's the Boss charts Pelosi's carefully orchestrated rise to power as a uniquely American ruling-class diva who is not so subtly replacing "by the people, for the people" with "have your people call my people." From her father- a congressman and then mayor of Baltimore whose political machine was tainted by scandal-Pelosi learned about patronage, ruthlessness, and the credo of the party boss: never admit to anything, never apologize, and attack when challenged.

As Speaker of the House, Pelosi once pounded her gavel so hard it left a dent in the lectern. She frightens even those who agree with her on almost everything. She punishes those who stand in her way. And her hypocrisy knows no bounds:

? While Pelosi spends millions in taxpayers' dollars to green up the capital and expects Americans to pay for their carbon footprints, she demands a bigger jet for her trips across the globe as well as military G5s for holiday weekends.

? She claims to act for the benefit of the American people, yet enriches her family's portfolio through pet legislation and personal financial dealings.

? She tried to enact taxpayer funding for abortions, defying the teachings of the Catholic Church, of which she is a member.

? With promises of utopia, she drives massive legislation deals through Congress by stiff arm twisting, knowing she and her allies will profit at the expense of the electorate.

It will be clear after reading She's the Boss that the party works for Pelosi.

What People Are Saying

Newt Gingrich
“Rochelle Schweizer's She's the Boss unpacks for the reader Nancy Pelosi's unmistakably radical agenda for America. The first biography to expose how the Speaker maintains her firm grip on power and how she gets her colleagues to go along with her big government takeovers even when it's not in their interests. Every citizen needs to understand the real change she has planned for the country.” --(Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House of Representatives )
Fred Barnes
“Nancy Pelosi is the most powerful woman in America and also the most dangerous. She represents only a narrow sliver of the views of most Americans, yet she would impose those views on the country. Rochelle Schweizer explains how Pelosi rose to power and the far left agenda she espouses. She’s the Boss is critical to understanding what’s going on in Washington today and Pelosi’s pivotal role.”--(Fred Barnes, executive editor, Weekly Standard)
Andrew Breitbart
“Rochelle Schweizer presents compelling evidence that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a political boss operating on overdrive and has turned her House into a corrupt institution by pulling the levers of political power for her benefit as well as that of her allies.”--(Andrew Breitbart, founder of Breitbart.com)
Michelle Easton
“Many Americans have wondered how an official with such a wide-eyed leftist agenda and such arrogance could become the highest-ranking female politician in U.S. history? In She’s the Boss, Rochelle Schweizer reveals how Pelosi became Speaker of the U.S. House using the same ruthless techniques she learned from her father’s world of corrupt Baltimore boss politics. Schweizer reveals how Pelosi exploits Americans’ respect for women and grandmothers to hide her radical leftwing agenda. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to truly understand this widely unpopular, arrogant, and overreaching political boss and shows how the House she built may be about to collapse.”--(Michelle Easton, president, Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute)
