Blue Dog Democrats Ask Pelosi to Step Down Party Leader After GOP Shellacking


Will Nancy Pelosi step down  as the Democratic leader and leave Congress … ABC says not so fast.

Days after the 60+ US House  shellacking, Blue Dog Democrats ask Nancy Pelosi to step down from leadership role in Democrat party. The once mighty Blue Dog Democrats who were shattered in this past 2010 midterm election as they were reduced to “whipped pups” as they lost 29 of 54 seats.

One thing is for certain … Ding, Dong … Pelosi is no longer Speaker


An elder statesman of the moderate Blue Dog Coalition is calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to step down from party leadership after a historic election in which she presided over the loss of 60 seats and control of the House.

Utah Rep. Jim Matheson, a co-chairman of the Blue Dogs, told POLITICO on Thursday that Pelosi should not be a candidate for minority leader —a sign that other Blue Dogs are ready to pounce if Pelosi doesn’t voluntarily cede her power.

“No,” Matheson said flatly when asked if Pelosi should seek the job. “We just got whupped.”

As the Gateway Pundit aptly states, Democrats should have listened to Evan Bayh. It is hard to believe that Democrats would want to head into the 2012 election cycle after having their butts handed to them in the 2010 midterms with both Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid as their leaders. The image to the American people would be that Democrats learned nothing and would use both of them as political targets. After all, Speaker Pelosi stated, she had “no regrets”.

      voting for pelosi as minority leader will be the same as hanging yourself during the 2012 elections. surely there aren’t many dems dumb enough to do that.

      I wonder now that the Patriot Conservatives have control over the house, will they have the balls to investigate as to where NObama’s real birth certificate is? they could put and end to all his socialist activities once and for all. maybe even deport him or send him to prison.

      pelosi must have some hold over her fellow democrats, to make them vote her way. after all, they could have said no, “i’m not voting for that”.
      congress must be more corrupt than we can imagine, if they can be made to vote against the good of their country. in other words they have been black-mailed. they also, received money for their votes.

      the whole democratic party is so corrupt it won’t matter who leads them.

      The dems asking Pelosi to step down for the “good” of their party is ok…but when Palin stepped down for the good of her party, she was called “quitter” and loser. The dems call the Republicans the “party of no.” We should call them the “party of hypocrites”
