    maybe she should have an apple on her head or better yet in her mouth.

    Yeah, but you watch. The Dems that are left haven’t learned anything, and she will be elected Minority Leader by a landslide.

    She looks like a cross between Barbie and the Joker and comes across about as well in interviews… Maybe she’s just not a good public speaker…

    After all her hard work and accomplishments she deserves to be elected minority leader. I would vote for her.

    Ok this one is so on the Mark. No pun we are so happy it is true oh God and she might get it. There was a good article in the Weekly Standard the other day. Forgot who wrote it but the base of the Democrats in the House will be California and East Cost Dem. The ones who love Pelosi then all she needs are about 25 more votes. She can get that by going through her rolodex once.

    The great thing here is we can pick up more votes in the House and the Democrats have like 22 Senate Seats to defend next year while the Republicans only has 9.

    What’s about that place that the inhabitants don’t know when to retire. Move on Babe.

    Depending on Libertarian1’s tone he does have a point. Righties hate Pelosi because she actually accomplished the vast majority of what she was elected to do. She was stopped only by the Senate.

    Meanwhile plenty of Righties want her elected because she draws plenty of fire… much like Lefties want Palin nominated because she does as well.

    It doesn’t take much to lead a minority. All you need is a single follower. It doesn’t even have to be human.

    Question to fredgold

    Just where do you go to find unbiased reportage?

    Why this organized pile-on of Pelosi? The Speaker’s job is to get legislation passed – this she did to a fare thee well. There were two problems – Obama’s putting the perfect before the possible, and his lack of a forceful Senate leader.

    ^ Because she did was she was supposed to and did it well. Female politicians, from what I hear, are best served by quitting halfway through their terms.

    ^ funny one, jade

    ^ you are all being humorous I assume. She had a 79 vote majority. What possible skill did it demand to get those bills through? The Senate on the other hand was closer and required skill. That is why most didn’t pass.

    The new House has a large Republican majority. Will you give huge amounts of credit to Boehner if he gets bills through? If they don’t pass he gets blamed. The default assumption is everything will pass.

    I think it is moot to wonder if Boehner will get credit for passing legislation, because he and the tea party want to make this session all about undoing Obamacare and any other high-profile Obama-passed legislation that will keep their cause in the news. If they actually try to pass new legislation, there will be gridlock, and it is my belief that they depend on an emotionally-charged populace to keep them in power. Gridlock is boring, so there will be nothing with which to light another fire under their target voters.

    …I guess there will always be gay marriage proposals with which they can draw out their base…
