For the good of the republic (and the GOP), House Democrats in the 112th Congress need to march further down the path they blazed in the 111th Congress. They must not falter in defending Obamacare, in insisting on tax hikes, in seeking to impose new burdens on the economy, and in trying to undercut our troops in Afghanistan.

House Democrats must reject the counsel of timidity of Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky, who said on November 4, “As good a leader as she has been, I don’t think she’s the right leader to take us forward.” Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, who now ranks second to Pelosi but who has more moderate inclinations, would be “a perfect spokesman for the Democratic Party in the House,” Yarmuth said.

House Democrats: Ignore that man!
