Pelosi: I don’t plan to stay in this new, smaller office for long

posted at 10:06 pm on January 6, 2011 by Allahpundit

Candygram for Nancy from TNR’s Ed Kilgore: Get comfortable.

We can’t be precise about how all of this will shake out. But it is reasonably clear that, to take back the House in 2012, Democrats would have to approximate the feat they pulled off in the banner year of 2006 while facing a changed and more hostile political map. Redistricting aside, a number of places where veteran Blue Dog Democrats lost in 2010—including three in Tennessee, two in Mississippi, and one each in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Alabama—are heavily Republican districts that are very unlikely to flip back in the foreseeable future.

The Senate picture for Democrats in 2012 is not much better, for the simple reason that 23 of the 33 seats that will be contested then are currently held by Democrats, reflecting the 2006 landslide. To put it another way, Republicans could lose Senate races by a 19-14 margin and still recapture the chamber (or by a 20-13 margin if they win the White House). Meanwhile several Republican senators, including Orrin Hatch of Utah, Dick Lugar of Indiana, Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas, and Olympia Snowe of Maine, will go into the 2012 re-election cycle more worried about right-wing primary challenges than about general election contests…

So what’s my point, other than to pour cold water on Democratic hopes for a quick revival after a really bad midterm election? It’s that progressives need to begin adjusting their expectations. Up until now, many Democrats have judged Barack Obama according to the hopes he inspired in 2008—that he might not only undo the damage inflicted on the country by George W. Bush, but end more than three decades of conservative ascendancy and usher in a period of progressive reform. We have been judging Obama according to our wish-list: the public option, cap-and-trade, repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” And we have been disappointed when he fails to deliver.

That’s not the best way to look at the rest of the Obama presidency.

Unmentioned here but also relevant: The precipitous decline in Democratic Party ID over the past few years. Via Gallup:

Between voter disaffection from the GOP in 2008 and the implosion of the big liberal “comeback” this year, we’ve heard a lot lately about the “rise of independents.” In fact, though, independents have ruled the roost for decades. Except for a brief blip after the invasion of Iraq, they’ve been ahead of Democrats and Republicans steadily since 1991 — sometimes, as in 1995, by wide margins. The conventional electoral wisdom, I think, is that voters split roughly 40/40 between the parties with the remaining 20 percent of independents deciding the race. Not so: It’s more like 30/30 with a huge 40 percent chunk (many of whom lean to one party or the other, needless to say) to decide things. Maybe the most amazing thing here, though, is how little variability there is over time. In a span of almost 25 years, despite demographic changes and the flow of events, Democratic ID has fluctuated within a narrow five-point band. It’s remarkable that Pelosi managed to steer them from the top of that band to the very bottom in just two years. Another one of her “achievements,” I guess. Click the image to watch.

Pelosi can resign and get here own office in California. We’ll take that bullet for y’all. Her privately funded office won’t be any larger than her new Congressional accommodations, but it will seem larger without her incredibly shrinking base of establishment sycophants.

The Dems won the House back in 2006 because the GOP had acted like Dems and that allowed the Dems to run pseudo-conservatives around the country. People now understand the Dems = Far Left, so as long as the GOP stays conservative, there should be no switch for a long time.

4) Make sure Pelosi stays retired!

MeatHeadinCA on January 6, 2011 at 10:24 PM

Pelosi is ~ 70 yrs old. No doubt she wants to pull a Strom Thurmond or Rob. Byrd where she’s strapped to a plank and rolled into her office or onto the floor in a coma with one of her grandchildren/great-grandchildren tied to her bosom as she expires in public.

The bottom line is that she deranged, truly bat$hit crazy, and she needs to leave. The fact that she’s so obsessed with being the first female speaker, power and her inability to accept defeat is a statement of her madness. It’s a complete disgrace.

Nancy is counting on the Republicans blowing it? That’s the only way they take back the house and hold the senate in 2012.

The Republicans have the optics right they need to get better at “messaging” and action meaning results not just going through the symbolic acts.

The news cycle their 2nd day shouldn’t have been filled with damage control over cutting spending this fiscal year’s budget. They pledged a 100 Million, and talking about how adult it is to raise the debt ceiling. If they are going to be using their outside voices – thinking out loud among themselves they shouldn’t do it around liberal biased reporters. Letting the MSM shape the Obamacare repeal using the CBO and not pushing back makes them look like they are not up to speed.

The only one that seemed to get it was John McCain, he was on Imus this morning, discussing spending cuts if they could manage to block special interest. Oh and John McCain’s son Jack McCain is getting his “Wings” this month he is a Marine Pilot.

As for me, you can’t deceive
I know it’s only make believe

My one and only hope, your district will say “nope”
My hopes, my dreams come true, to see retired you
No one will ever know, how much I loathe you so
The gavel in your hand, again would wreck this land
Thank God it’s just make believe

My hopes, my dreams come true, retired soon are you
My boot your buttocks hit, distressing where you sit
My stomach wretches when, I think of you again
Your only prayer will be, again in charge to be
But it’s only make believe

With apologies to Conway Twitty

Akzed on January 7, 2011 at 10:00 AM

I am glad AP mentioned this party ID being at an all time low along with Pelosi saying her latest crazy thing. First on the party ID. The Republican brand ID went down as the Republicans did things people didn’t want to be identified with. Every crazy Pelosi utterance drives their numbers down. Also identifying as a democrat has a lot to do with moral superioirty and feeling intelligent,etc and Pelosi makes that hard to do with these stupid comments. Second when the discussion of why Pelosi was kept as Speaker was put to democrats it was mentioned she is a great fundraiser. Pelosi is a great fundraiser because people wanted to get close to the potential Speaker of the House pre-2006 and Speaker of the House 2007-2010. Pelosi knows ALL her power and fundraising ability comes from being the potential Speaker of the House and so I can virually guareentee that she tries to convince all these donators or anyone she talks to that the Democrats will be back in control and you want to be in her and the democrats good graces. The same logic applies to why she refused to concede the losses coming in 2010. Its all about fundraising for Pelosi. We all know she didn’t get there by being smart.
