The polls are pointing to the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans approved of the President’s State of the Union address earlier this week. Could that mean, despite their constant defiance, Democratic leadership may finally be willing to accept a bipartisan border security deal?

Today on the show we discussed Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments following Tuesday night’s State of the Union address in which she may have signaled she’s willing to support a bipartisan deal to secure our southern border. There are negotiations happening right now to come up with an acceptable proposal to the President and Congress.

Pelosi stated to reporters:

“I told them whatever you all come to agreement on, bipartisan agreement, I will support. I hope that the administration would have the same attitude and respect for the appropriations process. Of course, I’m an appropriator and I know they can find an agreement.”

Before she was finished, Speaker Pelosi reiterated her confidence in the appropriations committee, saying, “I have confidence in the appropriators not because I know what they’re doing but because I have confidence in the appropriations process being an appropriator myself.”

The question is, will she stand by her words if the appropriators present a bipartisan deal that includes funding for a physical barrier along the border?

Just over a month ago, Speaker Pelosi held a press conference where, when asked by a reporter, she conceded that she would give “one dollar” for the wall. Meanwhile she held a harder line on the Today show, stating: "No, no. Nothing for the wall.”

Now we seem to be seeing a total about-face. Perhaps the Left is seeing that the political ground is shifting beneath them. America wants a secure border, and that includes building the wall.

You can listen to the entire episode here.

Secure the Border. Build the Wall.
