Daggers Out For Nancy Pelosi

1. Frustration with Nancy Pelosi simmers among Democrats

By LAUREN FRENCH and JOHN BRESNAHAN

No Democrat is gearing up to challenge Nancy Pelosi in public, but behind the scenes some Democrats are saying itís time for new blood at the leadership table ahead of 2016.

...

Nearly a dozen senior aides and Democratic insiders said there is a desire for a broader election message from party leaders. There are complaints about Pelosi focusing so strongly on women without a broader message that could play to other groups, such as older voters and men.

"As a party, we need to change," another senior Democratic aide said. "[Voters] like our policies. All this leftie [talk], the country likes, but somehow the message about us as individual members of the conference isn't breaking through. There is great unrest."

I have a question. What did this guy really say? The quote says
"[voters]" and "[talk]." The brackets of course mean that synonyms have been substituted.

Did he really say...

"Lefties like our policies. All this leftie crap, the country likes, but somehow the message about us as individual members of the conference isn't breaking through...

Just wonderin'.

At least one new Democratic lawmaker, Gwen Graham of Florida, has already said she wonít back Pelosi as leader, although other Pelosi allies have come out in support of her.

2. Pelosi Seeks to Soothe Caucus in Post-Election Conference Call (Updated)

By Emma Dumain

Pelosi, who is running to keep her job, is telling her shrinking caucus she can keep showing them the money.


In a private call with her restive -- and shrinking -- flock -- Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pointed to her fundraising prowess as a reason to keep her post -- while some of her top allies blamed President Barack Obama for the party's woes.

Pelosi hopes to continue leading the caucus although many members are privately discussing when there will be a change in senior leadership ranks.

"I know where the money is," the California Democrat said, according to sources on the call. "I know where to get it."

This is absurd. The money finds a party leader. The party leader does not need to find the money.

Nancy Pelosi is doomed, if this weak shit is what she's making her case on.

As the party looks ahead to the 2016 presidential election cycle, perhaps Pelosiís best argument in her favor despite Republicans taking the biggest majority in decades is her fundraising ability. In the last 12 years, she has raised more than $400 million, a staggering sum that no other lawmaker can begin to match.

No other lawmaker was Minority Leader then Speaker of the House then Minority Leader through this period.

This isn't just pragmatists who are looking to boot Pelosi. True Believer lefties want her gone too:

3. Ralph Nader: Nancy Pelosi Should Resign

Ralph Nader thinks House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) should resign as leader of the Democratic party after failing to retake the majority for the third straight election cycle.

"Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and Steve Israel should now recognize the wisdom of baseball's 'three strikes and you're out' (failure to win control of the House in 2010, 2012, 2014), step down from their posts and invite fresh leadership who can save the country from the ravages of today's Republican party," he said.

I think she's gone. Even though it doesn't completely make sense -- after all, the bigger problem was Obama.

But the Democrat party can't kick him out, and isn't even politically permitted to even admit that he's a problem in the first place.

As in North Korea, it must instead be claimed that the crop failed not because Dear Leader forgot to water the fields, but because the Sky was subversively dry.
