Whither, Pelosi?

posted at 11:01 am on November 8, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

That possible silver lining I mentioned? It’s all still speculation at this point, but hey, we can dream… via Roll Call:

The day after elections that were largely positive for the Democratic Party, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s future loomed over leadership races, as lawmakers waited for her to decide whether she will return for two more years at the helm of the House’s minority party.

Democratic leaders did not schedule any Wednesday conference calls or meetings with rank-and-file Members to discuss the election results or pending legislative matters such as the “fiscal cliff,” leaving Democrats in the dark about Pelosi’s thinking. And several leadership aides said they were not aware of the California Democrat’s whereabouts.

“My guess would be [Pelosi] should stay since it was such a high note for Democrats last night,” a senior Democratic aide said. “Considering how we defeated 16 incumbents last night … I think we have a lot to work with.” …

“I think she’s done,” one Democratic Member said, noting that with Obama re-elected, the Democrats’ health care overhaul will be safe from repeal, cementing a key accomplishment Pelosi helped enact.

Pelosi’s erstwhile claims that Democrats taking back the House was “very doable” we obviously tilting toward bullishness, but there’s no denying it was a great night for Democrats overall, and now she’s got to choose what to do with her leadership position. A difficult decision, I’m sure — keep riding the power-trippy high of Barack Obama’s latest victory, or retire with ObamaCare, et al and Democratic gains under your belt?

It may very well be that political parties are like hydras in that chopping off one head will only sprout more, but the prospect of no longer having to listen to Pelosi conflating entitlements and human rights; making bizarrre claims about needing to pass legislation in order to find out what’s in it; and informing us all that Republicans are actually against clean water and clean air… is a pleasing one.

She’ll choose to continue in the destruction of this Republic.
That’s what she’ll choose to do.
And she’s got the blessing of a little more than half of who voted this time around.

Pelosi’s erstwhile claims that Democrats taking back the House was “very doable” we[re] obviously tilting toward bullishness…

I don’t think “bullishness” is spelled correctly.

That being said, I think I would like “Stretch” Pelosi’s Botoxed-face to remain as that of the Democratic leadership.

RebeccaH on November 8, 2012 at 11:24 AM

I put this out over at MM an didn’t see a response so I’m trying it out here. It appears economic collapse is pretty enevitable. At what degree we don’t know but major accomodations will soon take place to address all the new rules associated with Obamacare and the continuing strangle that Dodd-Frank has on business. Unfunded mandates, pensions, etc. make the case it will occur no matter who is in charge.

Dems and the media have proven to be successful at directing ownership to Bush and republicans while driving the regulatory mandates that are ascerbating the problem.

How about negotiating in full sun light with the dems for fiscal rescue. Negotiate as hard as possible for conservative principals. Harry Reid will run roughshod over the process no matter what but give it an honest go anyway. The media and dems will prevail under any circumstance to reduce the repub effort. When it comes time to vote just stand aside and vote present.

I like the idea for a couple of reasons.

1) it brings the enevitable quicker
2) they won’t be able to hide ownership

DanMan on November 8, 2012 at 11:27 AM

Boehner needs to step aside as well and let Paul Ryan become Speaker. We need someone who can present the GOP fiscal clause with absolute clarity and can intellectually challenge Obama.

Look at him, listen to him…. he is an angry vicious man with power, he is one of many like minded operatives with a clear and present goal. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE ANYTHING HE/THEY SAY…… EVER! This is not Comedy Central… this IS REAL!

Empowered now by the ignorant selfish, lazy masses….. all evil will do at will what they wish to whomever they wish, unfettered and unchecked, unbound by the restraints that bind the rest of the people below them… we will feel the full wrath of the Barack Obama and Democrat party sting, they said as much with glee on their stumps……They will destroy us through our hearts and our wallets, in every aspect of our lives, America is in fact going to be CHANGED forever!

Regulation and taxation strangulation, chocking the very life from our bodies…… We are now truly relegated to COLLATERAL DAMAGE status… unnecessary and ineffective obstacles!

Republicans need to include Wall Street Banks and financial institutions who feed off of the government bailouts when they talk of freeloaders and leeches.

Remember, it’s the poor and the Wall Street crooks who are feeding off the producing class.

In any case, Nancy Pelosi, without a doubt is the most effective and ruthless Speaker of the House in my lifetime. She knew the weakness of her foes, and knew that by jamming through a crap sandwich healthcare plan she couold break the system and gets us to a single payer model….which is coming soon.

We kept the House because House seats are far more difficult to steal, most of them being outside the ‘spigots’ in the corrupt democratic vote-theft machines in the deep-dark-blue inner cities.

You can steal Senate seats and a Presidency, but not House seats, -the brilliance of our Constitution, and the stupidity of the 17th Amendment.

If there is a silver lining, it is pretty heavily tarnished.

Nancy Pelosi is a symptom, not a cause,and if she goes tomorrow, there’ll be someone else like her to take her place because millions of our fellow citizens (subjects) support people like her .

The electorate has reached a crtical mass of enablers for cronies, and statists. It has contiually voted her in and scores of others like her despite the damage she and others of her ilk have done to our country inparticularly to generations yet to be born.

The problem lies not in our elected officials, but the people who keep voting them in.

2) America *will* go on. “Things will not turn out as bad as we fear”. The world has no other option. Unless we are living in the End Times, then things will go on. The United States has been through darker times, and we pulled it together. We, as individuals have more control over our destinies than anyone else. As bad as it may seem here right now, where else is better? Name me one country.

I know the answer. Your’e motive is not about solutions, it is about vindictiveness.

My health care coverage was recently up for renewal. As a single male, I was offered a new type of coverage that is not available to families with children. This was made posssible by changes brought about by Obamacare.

The cost of my coverage went down.

By 2016, black and hispanic families are going to be livid at the changes brought about by Obamacare.

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are the Poster Children of driving the economy into the ditch.

When they took majority control on January 3, 2007, the FY 2007 budget that they inherited from the Republicans produced a deficit of under $161 Billion. Bush and the Republican Congress had handed Pelosi and Reid a budget deficit that was SMALLER THAN EITHER OF THE DEFICITS PRODUCED BY BILL CLINTON WITH A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS.

Bush and the Republican Congress produced a smaller deficit in the FY 2007 budget than Clinton and the Democrat Congress produced in either FY 1994 or FY 1995.

The economy was in great shape when Pelosi and Reid took control of the wheel on January 3, 2007.

Unemployment was at 4.4%.
The FY 2007 deficit was under $161 Billion.

Pelosi and Reid TRIPLED the deficit in FY 2008, then TRIPLED IT AGAIN in FY 2009, and we’ve now gone four straight years (entering our fifth year) with deficits well over $1 Trillion per year (well over $1,000 Billion per year) with no end in sight.

Who wouldn’t want to go back to 4.4% unemployment and an annual deficit under $161 Billion?

This is not Comedy Central… this IS REAL!
Empowered now by the ignorant selfish, lazy masses….. all evil will do at will what they wish to whomever they wish, unfettered and unchecked, unbound by the restraints that bind the rest of the people below them… we will feel the full wrath of the Barack Obama and Democrat party sting, they said as much with glee on their stumps……They will destroy us through our hearts and our wallets, in every aspect of our lives, America is in fact going to be CHANGED forever!
Regulation and taxation strangulation, chocking the very life from our bodies…… We are now truly relegated to COLLATERAL DAMAGE status… unnecessary and ineffective obstacles!
There is NO cause for celebration…. only a resolve to protect our families by whatever means necessary against a machine hell-bent on enslaving a nation and people forever and a day!

Jesus. Conservative media and pundits have really got you shaking in your boots and feeling victimized, huh. It’s not real brother. Take a break before you snap.

I’ve never met a liberal dumbass from OK. I hope to keep it that way. Seeing your posts is close enough.

We need someone who … can intellectually challenge Obama.

Should take any one of Jeff Foxworthy’s Fifth Graders to do that.

If my opinion matters, I don’t mind retiring the Obamateurisms.

Yea, I agree. I don’t think I take them humorously anymore now that we have to face four more years.

I’d rather retire the stupid ‘Dude?’ articles.

Axelron gave Nana a “nice, warm cup of shut the hell up” during the election campaign. It helped O. A lot.
