( – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she is “almost too busy” to continue listening to what is going on in the debt limit meetings at the White House with congressional leaders.

At a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday Pelosi said, “Day in and day out, the president has respectfully listened, accommodated, engaged in conversation in a very informed way and he is the president of the United States. I know he’s busy.”

“I myself am almost too busy to continue listening to some of the things that are going on in that room,” said Pelosi.  “So I know he must be very busy. But he has treated everyone there with great dignity. The only thing I hope he doesn’t ask us to do is go to Camp David. That goes beyond the pale. Driving down the street for these meetings is one thing --.”

Pelosi went on to describe Camp David as a place where the President should be able to study rather than hold meetings like the current debt limit negotiations.
