Democrat and former House Speaker Pelosi tells reporters Obamacare mandate was NOT delayed ??

Democrat Nancy Pelosi was speaker of the House, the highest-ranking Democratic member of that body.  So you'd think things she says would be pretty representative of the party's positions.

Clearly you haven't been paying attention.

After Obama ordered a one-year delay in the "mandate" portion of Obamacare, reporters asked Pelosi about the whole snafu.  Here's what Pelosi said during a press conference on Thursday:
The point that the mandate was not delayed. Certain reporting by businesses that could be perceived as onerous, that reporting requirement was delayed, and partially to review how it would work and how it could be better. It was not a delay of the mandate for the businesses.
Even the Democrat-loving Washington Post was shamed into reporting this astonishingly untrue statement.  (The Post awarded it "three Pinocchios.")

Questions for readers:  Does Pelosi actually believe the employer mandate was NOT delayed?  With all her staffers, being the ranking Democrat in congress [spit] and with a topic of such huge impact to the country, how could she not know this? And what does her statement tell you about the caliber of folks who somehow have managed to make it to the top leadership positions of the Democratic party?
