That's right, Nancy Pelosi may be out as Speaker, THANK YOU, but she is NOT going away. No folks, she wants to be Leader. Forget the fact someone else already holds that job. She don't care. I'm willing to bet someone talked her into this. I'll explain in a second. First, here is her letter of intent.
November 5, 2010You have no idea how hard it was for me to read this without interrupting it several times to set the record straight. First, NO ONE WANTS OBAMACARE. We want it repealed. No one wants your version of "Wall Street Reform." It will cripple our already hurting Economy. You created NO JOBS! Women Rights? Maybe she is referring to that "non-existent" provision in Obamacare that WILL pay for Abortions on Demand?
Over the past several days, I have spoken with many Democratic colleagues about how to continue our fight for to make our country more secure and strengthen the middle class, create jobs, protect Social Security and Medicare, and promote the innovation, technology and education to make America Number One in the world. As always, I am inspired by the fighting spirit of our Democratic Members.
As you know, Democrats have produced historic legislation in the area of health care, veterans' benefits, women's rights, Wall Street reform, and cutting taxes for 95 percent of the American people and millions of small businesses. And we have restored fiscal discipline to the Congress by making the deficit-cutting Pay As You Go rules the law of the land.
These accomplishments have begun the difficult work of recovering from the worst economic collapse since the 1930s and, according to independent reviews, prevented our country from plunging into another Great Depression. As a result, numerous congressional experts call this the most productive Congress in a half century. This was only possible because our Members had the courage of their convictions and put the interests of the Country first.
Our work is far from finished. As a result of Tuesday's election, the role of Democrats in the 112th Congress will change, but our commitment to serving the American people will not. We have no intention of allowing our great achievements to be rolled back. It is my hope that we can work in a bipartisan way to create jobs and strengthen the middle class.
Many of our colleagues have called with their recommendations on how to continue our fight for the middle class, and have encouraged me to run for House Democratic Leader. Based on those discussions, and driven by the urgency of protecting health care reform, Wall Street reform, and Social Security and Medicare, I have decided to run.
I am writing to respectfully request your support and I look forward to hearing your views. Please let me know what you are thinking.
Thank you for your leadership and friendship.
I think the BIGGEST struggle I had was reading past the whole "cutting taxes for 95 percent of the American people and millions of small businesses." THAT is COMPLETE BS.
Anyway, Pelosi said that she wants to be Leader to protect all the things they have accomplished. I'm really starting to think that she has lost her mind. THAT is the main reason that they are OUT. What they have accomplished is NOT what the American People want. But it should be fun watching the infighting when the Adults take over in January. Here is the reason I think someone got to her. Someone most likely told her about Sam Rayburn. According to Wikipedia
On September 16, 1940 at the age of 58, and while serving as Majority Leader of the United States House of Representatives, Rayburn became Speaker of the House upon the sudden death of Speaker William Bankhead. Rayburn's career as Speaker was interrupted only twice: 1947–1948 and 1953–1954, when Republicans controlled the House. During those periods of Republican rule, Rayburn served as Minority Leader. However, he so disliked the term "minority leader" that he asked to be referred to as the "Democratic Leader" during those interim four years when the office of Speaker was held by the Republican Joseph W. Martin, Jr. of Massachusetts, actually a close personal friend of Rayburn's.The Conventional Wisdom right now on the Left, and soon to be reported in the MMD, is that NOW the Republicans are going to take over, and blow it, and the Democrats will be back in power in 2012. This will reinstate Pelosi as Speaker once again and guarantee Obama a Second Term. We can not let that happen. If the Republicans actually listen to the PEOPLE, and NOT the Establishment Republican Leadership, IT WILL NOT HAPPEN. The Republicans WILL be in charge for a LONG time, as long as they actually DO the right thing. As long as they WALK the Walk, after successfully Talking the Talk. Now it's time to step up. We can not let the Loons take control back. We NEED Sanity in our Government.
