    Nancy Pelosi faces new resistance from Democrats - Jonathan Allen and John Bresnahan - POLITICO.com

    Pelosi announced Friday that she’s running for minority leader in the new Congress, and her election still seems on track. But a movement by conservative Blue Dogs to block her ascent has picked up support from some liberals and even a handful of longtime Pelosi allies, who question whether she is the best person to lead the battered party in the House.

    At least 15 Democrats have said publicly that they have lost faith in her ability to lead — a number backed up by as many as two dozen more who are indicating the same thing privately, while others haven’t yet taken sides.

    Even the New York Times' editorial page has called on Pelosi to step aside.
    libs peter defazio and marcy kaptur and mike quigley and tim ryan (perpetual pelosi pal), dogs mike ross and jim matheson and dan boren and joe donnelly and heath shuler...

    try to see at least ONE move ahead---LOL!

    she sure can't

    Even if she's able to stay atop the Democratic Caucus, she won't be in control of it — at least not the way she used to be. The drip-drip-drip of public defectors demonstrates that some of her troops no longer fear the repercussions of challenging her authority. And some clearly see political benefit in publicly thumbing their nose at the unpopular outgoing speaker.

    Her loss of command means that incoming Speaker John Boehner will have a rich target of opportunity for wooing a bloc of disgruntled Democrats who may want to send a message on everything from taxes to spending to energy.

    charlie stenholm, former 13 term rep from texas, original dog:

    "See if there’s 10 of them or 15 or 20 of them. Put them together and see John Boehner and the Republican leadership … see if you can’t put together a compromise."
    look forward: pelosi keeping her spot is gonna make super problematic the RECRUITMENT of candidates for 2012

    look ahead: the ugly hoyer-clyburn contest gets racial, the cbc kicking

    are you sure these people know what they're doing?

    meanwhile, the still palsied speakeress has declared NEXT WEDNESDAY as the day of her anointment

    hurry, nancy!

    please, hurry!

    Here is what the arrogant liberals refuse to accept.

    The Top 10 Places in America Poised for Recovery - Newsweek

    Growing up I learned a basic principle, "steal shamelessly" meaning that if someone else has a better idea take it and benefit from the experience of others. Liberals never do that and thus are doomed to repeat their failures. Instead of finding out what works best and copying it, they continue to promote the same ideology over and over again. November's election results are a repudiation of the liberal agenda yet liberals refuse to accept that they are wrong and more importantly refuse to change their focus. In the meantime states like TX continue to grow and prosper as new businesses are moving to this state from those high tax states all while liberals continue to complain.

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    that was a fabulous read, friend, thanks

    and from evan thomas' newsweek, of all sources

    texaplex and torpedo alley escape recession, even boom

    housing, industry (samsung, nokea, siemens, fujitsu, twitter, adobe...), growth, commutes, solid infrastructures, opportunities for youth...

    farm equipment and food from the plains and south midwest shipped to china and india

    success!

    it's rare these days

    people departing california for oklahoma, reverse dust bowl

    germany too shows the way

    germany's unemployment hits 18 year low

    there should be a rule, for the good of the order---for every 10000 posts SUBMITTED each member must READ at least one LINK

    LOL!

    thanks, again, conservative, i know more now than i did before you clued me in, knowledge is power

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    to the few of you FAMILIAR with american electoral MAPPINGS:

    in the northeast, republicans last tuesday increased their congressional membership by 138%

    in the crucial battleground RUST BELT, 99 house districts, reds upped their delegation by 57%, we now DOMINATE in PA, WV, OH, IN, MI, WI, IL and MN, 61 republicans to a miserable 38 pelosi partisans

    what's that mean, do you spose, heading into 2012?

    in the south, already blood red (it's hard to increase percentage when you're already way ahead), racist reprobates now hold NINETY SIX of the 130 congressional districts, a net pickup of NINETEEN

    in the midwest, a 25% increase in red representation gives us exactly 75% of the delegations from IA, MO, ARK, OK, KS, NB, SD and ND

    the rockies saw an astonishing swing, there are currently ZERO dems in the mountains outside denver, my side now represents SEVENTY ONE PERCENT of house seats from the region

    in the west, outside CA, tea drinkers increased their caucus exactly 50%, in OR, WA, NV, AZ, NM, HW and Alaska today, there are 15 republicans serving in congress vs 16 dems

    CA stuck out like obama's tone deaf ears, republicans picked up ZERO seats in my state, the only area in america to resist the surge

    which is fine---california is going to be the FIRST, the BIGGEST and the BADDEST bailiwicks to go BUST

    and who do you think will be PERCEIVED as earning the BLAME?

    try at least to see a move ahead

    House Leadership Scuffle Heats Up - Washington Wire - WSJ

    they're trying to screw clyburn

    jim clyburn is the african american WHIP in pelosi's house, #3, after majority leader steny hoyer from maryland

    clyburn OWNS the democratic party in his home state of south carolina, i can't think of a single figure in a major state who controls so much of his caucus

    well, when nancy expressed her inexhaustable ambition, she forced hoyer and clyburn to fight for the whip, the #2 spot for minority, the position the south carolina boss currently holds

    grasping pelosi has scheduled her coup for next wednesday

    and she has cynically slated the clyburn-hoyer vote for LAST on the bill

    this way, the loser is OUT of leadership, all the titled positions already decided

    this, she calculates, forces her pair of "partners" to broker a deal in advance

    we'll see

    the cbc is agitated

    up to 30 centrist members will side with the orange dude

    are you sure your leadership knows what it's doing?

    how far can they play YOU?

    you need to know, the longer you stick with this team (LOL!) the lonelier you will become

    take care

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    first day of the lame duck:

    Rep. Charles Rangel's Ethics Trial Approaches Monday - ABC News

    STILL not embarrassed?

    what's it gonna take?

    you don't require base COMPETENCE from those whom you endorse?

    oh well

    meanwhile, for your edification: clyburn caved last nite, it's gonna be hoyer as #2

    House Democrats reach deal on leadership - John Bresnahan and Richard E. Cohen - POLITICO.com

    which means PELOSI'S #1!

    CONGRATS!!!

    ''I guarantee it's one of their long-term goals, to have one sort of borderless mass continent.''
    —Kentucky GOP Senate nominee and Tea Party favorite Rand Paul, on the future of North America, May 25, 2010

    ''We will talk a little bit about what has transpired in the last 18 months and would we count what has transpired into turning our country into a nation of slaves.''
    —Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), speaking at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver about the evils of the Obama administration, July 9, 2010

    ''I hope that's not where we're going, but you know if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying my goodness what can we do to turn this country around? I'll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out.''
    —Sharron Angle, the Tea Party candidate who won the Republican nomination in Nevada's Senate primary, floating the possibility of armed insurrection, interview with right-wing talk radio host Lars Larson in Portland, OR, January 2010

    ''I'm not a witch...I'm you.''
    —Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell, in a 30-second ad responding to video clips from her past in which she said she dabbled in witchcraft, Oct. 4, 2010


    Two of the above actually won!!

    2010 - the year the insanely stupid were voted in.
