Nancy Pelosi has been elected to lead House Democrats in the new Congress despite presiding over the loss of more than 60 House seats in the midterm elections.
The 70-year-old California liberal was opposed by Rep. Heath Shuler of North Carolina in her bid to become minority leader in the new Congress. Shuler argued that Pelosi needed to go after presiding over the loss of the chamber earlier this month.
“There was a lot of unrest in the room for several hours,” Shuler said following the vote, arguing the strength of his challenge “sends a message” that the party needs to change direction.
……Pelosi has argued that she should remain in the leadership in part because she knows how to lead Democrats out of the political wilderness, having done so four years ago. She also argues that she is the most effective fundraiser for members of the caucus. She blames the party’s losses on the country’s lingering economic troubles and high unemployment rate, not her leadership.
Of course not, Nancy. It’s not because of the American people’s disgust at your hubris and disdain for the Constitution:
The economic cesspool has nothing to do with your ‘leadership’.
Your approval rating, which is probably in the negative numbers by now, is just a result of ‘lack of communication’. At least that’s what B. Hussein said about the shellacking your party took.
It’s all BUSH’s FAULT.
Nancy is very proud of her “achievements”:
“Because I’m an effective leader. Because we got the job done on healthcare, on Wall Street reform, and consumer protection, and the list goes on”.
Here’s the list, Nancy:
A $13 trillion debt (http://www.usdebtclock.org/)
Ramming an unConstitutional ObamaCare bill through Congress, against the will of the American people.
Spending billions in taxpayer funds to bail out, then takeover, 2/3rds of the auto industry, several banks, insurance compainis, and a large part of the mortgage business. (Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae)
Damage to our free-market system that will take years to repair.
Substantial payoffs to union thugs who are part and parcel to Dem corruption.
The disrespect and denigration of a cross-section of America–average people–who are fed up with big government.
Arrogant, smug, self-absorbed, conceited autocrats who circumvent the Constitution behind closed doors and away from the American public.
A government that targets patriots more than muslim terrorists.
Repeated attempts to pass blanket amnesty for illegal aliens.
Unprecedented, tyrannical hubris by a Speaker who thought she could “get things done without explaining the process”.
Despicable hositlity toward the military: Pelosi to General Petraeus: “I hope we don’t hear any glorification of what happened in Basra,”, referring to the ass-kicking offensive against Shiite militants in the city, by the United States Army and Iraqi Forces.
A democratic party that held our Republic hostage.
The list goes on.
Just think, this bitch will still be lurking in the Congress for a while. She has a unique combination of stupidity and arrogance that defines the D.C. political sphere.
