Skip to comments.Pelosi: Dems intend to win back the House

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is signaling she doesn't plan to stay in that diminished job very long.
The top House Democrat and 70-year-old former Speaker suggested Thursday night she has no goal short of winning the chamber back for her party.
"We are in a little bit of a sparse mode right now. I didn't realize we would be," Pelosi told CNN's John King, who noted her "sparsely decorated" new office. "I've had other work to do than to [laughter] because I don't plan to stay here that long."
Pelosi moved out of the Speaker's office and into minority leader headquarters after Republican John Boehner (Ohio) was sworn in earlier this week as Speaker.
Democrats need to win 25 seats to take back the House in 2012, and senior members of the party have emphasized this week that their goal is nothing less than that.
"I have been the minority leader before, and I put forth a plan for us to win the House for the American people and we succeeded," Pelosi said. "I know how to do that, and we intend to do that again."
Pelosi has proven experience in charting Democrats back to the majority. She served as minority leader last decade before leading her party to control of the House in the 2006 elections.

Why don’t the bitch just “deem” herself Speaker and move back in?
It would make as much sense as the rest of her crap.
Knock yourself out, bitch.
Good luck with it. They forgot to enter redistricting into their calculations. A lot of those 25 seats will be safe GOP.
And the voters are not going to be fooled by the Blue Dog brand again.
Nice to know she has her priorities in order.
Just keep dreaming, Nancy. And no, you can’t have your personal aircraft back.
In your effin’ dreams, Nancy.
All of that Botox has seeped into the stupid old bitch’s brain. Obamadinejad is history in 2012, and so is Pelosi’s speakership.
Of course. Whats the corrupt troll supposed to say? The Dimocrats allow her to keep her job for this reason.
She needs to get a life, retire to her winery & leave us folks alone. She’s done enough damage.
so, they won in 2006 because the country wanted a new direction from Bush. They won in 2008 cause the country wanted a new direction from Bush. They lost in 2010 cause of Bush policies and they will win the house back because of...........?
Didn’t she also predict they’d hold the House in November?
I thought her sole purpose was job & the economy. Here she is talking about politics.
By hook or by crook...mostly crook.
Watch our Pelosi, somebody may drop a house on you!
Where my crown at?
Hey Nancy, get a real life, okay? Maybe buy an ant farm so you can indulge in your power trip fantasies where they won’t do damage to actual people.
