Sebelius, Obama & Pelosi. Good times as Obama turned the Democratic Party into a dumpster fire.

I know she’s irritating, but she’s one of thebest friends the GOP has ever had! The longer she stays in, the more trouble the Democrats will have. They seem to be figuring that out, which is also a sign that they’re coming out of their coma, and that Trump is not the country’s problem, THEY ARE.

The silver lining of their Pelosi problem is they may finally turn completely inward and turn their toxic need for destruction on themselves.

The only other option for them is for Democrat party leaders to recognize their entire problem isn’t Pelosi, or any one individual in their party– it’s what they stand for, reflected in the fact that they’ve let the scourge of the left swallow their party whole.

Via Fox News.

“I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top,” Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Tex., bluntly told Politico. “Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost, but she certainly is one of the reasons.”

As Speaker of the House in 2009, Pelosi presided over a 255-seat majority which was wiped out by the next election, when Democrats fell to 193 seats. In three election cycles since then, Pelosi’s party has netted a single House seat.

Those seeking to be part of the next Democratic majority are already seeking separation from Pelosi.

Democrat Joe Cunningham, running to unseat Republican Mark Sanford in South Carolina, tweeted soon after announcing his candidacy: “If elected, I will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker. Time to move forward and win again.”

And those calls are coming from Washington, D.C., too.

Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., told CNN “we need a leadership change. It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.”

Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Oh., who ran against Pelosi in the last leadership election, didn’t invoke his former rival by name, but did by association, saying the Democratic product has grown spoiled and rotten in recent years.

“Here is the truth: the Democratic Party has a toxic brand, one that is worse than Donald Trump’s in many parts of the country,” Ryan wrote in a Medium post.

    Wait, the Dems are turning on Nancy Pelosi? Isn’t that just sexist and ageist of them? 🙂

    And great pic, Tammy, of The Three Stooges.

      I was being sarcastic in my previous comment, of course. But this is an actual tweet from a Dem:

      The Democratic Party needs to shed its internalized misogyny masquerading as progressive. #StandWithNancy

    I nominate Maxine Waters.

    Oh Pelosi’s antics were just fine with the Dems as long as they thought they were “winning.” Pelosi’s reign began to unravel shortly after the Christmas Eve vote on O-care in 2009. “We have to pass the bill to know what’s in it” didn’t sit well with the majority of Americans, many of whom were liberal and Democrat. Even they knew a rat when they smelled it. You can track the demise of Dems in Congress from that day forward. I for one say “Thank God for Nancy Pelosi.” Thanks for playing and we have a few nice parting gifts for you. Now Git!!

    Just in from the Washington Times…Nancy Pelosi says she’s staying because she’s worth the trouble. That may be true, especially if you’re planning to run for a House seat over 2500 miles from San Francisco and need a quarter mil deposited into your campaign war chest.

    Dems shocked to find that if they like their leader they can keep their leader. And if they don’t like their leader they can keep their leader.

    I admit to some concern about her getting replaced by someone more effective. I wish I could imagine a “good” scenario under which someone takes the helm who leads the party back in the general direction of sanity.

    She’s made it clear that she’s not going anywhere.
    Let’s face it, she’s channeling Stuart Smalley & Doggone it everybody likes her!
