House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has advice for her Republican colleagues in Congress: take your party back.

The GOP is being driven by an "ideological extreme sect" that is anti-government, anti-science and anti-Obama, the California Democrat said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

"So, it's a trifecta," Pelosi said.

The former House speaker did not specify which members of the Republican Party she was referring to, but she likely meant the tea party constituency led by Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz and Rep. Michele Bachmann. She said her "anti-government" comment referred to the October government shutdown that most people blamed on Cruz and other tea party members.

Pelosi insisted she was not painting every member of the Republican Party with the same brush.

"The Grand Old Party should take back their party to the force that they have been, and really dominate the debate but not cut off the debate, she said.
