San Fran Nan just won’t go away … Pelosi says she will run for the Democrat Minority leadership in the House.
Nancy Pelosi will soon have the gavel ripped from her hands after the 61+ US House pickups after the 2010 midterm elections; however,Pelosi says she will run for Democrat minority leader. How out of touch is Pelosi and the Democrat party if they actually continue to make Pelosi the face of the Democrat House?
Nancy Pelosi has become the gift that keeps on giving …
Pelosi told collegues in a letter that “our work is not finished” and announced her plans to the world via Twitter shortly thereafter by posting this message: “Driven by the urgency of creating jobs & protecting [health care reform and Wall Street reform], Social Security & Medicare, I am running for Dem Leader,” Pelosi Tweeted.
Nancy Pelosi has become like Jason from Friday the 13th … she just wont go away. The Democrat party has lost their collective minds if the elect Pelsoi minority leader, an individual with a job approval rating in the toilet.
For some shell-shocked House Democrats who held on in tough districts Tuesday, Pelosi’s decision is a bad dream come true.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to stay in power as minority leader after losing 60 seats and control of the House — a stunning announcement that sets up combat between her two top lieutenants.
Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer, the majority leader, and South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the majority whip, are positioning themselves to battle over the post of minority whip. An aide to Rep. John Larson, the caucus chairman, said he will seek another term in that post.
Democrats may be split on the Pelosi announcement, however, Republicans are ecstatic over the news. Pelosi to continue to be the voice and face of the liberal/radical Democrat House is like an early Christmas gift or a lottery jackpot win. The fact of the matter is though, with 20+ “blue dog” Democrats being voted out of the House and many of the other 60+ pick ups by the GOP, what remains in the House among Democrats is a more liberal group. Although, it is hard to imagine that Democrat would reward Pelosi after the butt kicking they took last Tuesday. However, this is Washington, DC, Democrats and government which means no common sense will prevail.
The growing fault line comes as Pelosi weighs the options in her political future. She has begun reaching out to members to gauge whether she enjoys enough support to stay as the Democratic leader.
“Democrats tend to be more kind to our leader when they have a loss,” said Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), the longest-serving member of the House, on Detroit’s WJR Radio. “She can run and probably get elected. I think she has a good chance of doing that.”
A word of warning to the LEFT and the liberal blogs, if you think that a Pelsoi led Democrat House is going to become the “party of no”, and continue to go against the will of the people … following the 2012 elections you will be in a forever minority in the House, Senate, Governorships, State legislatures, dog catcher and yes PRESIDENT!
