Pelosi: Dems intend to win back the House
The Hill ^ | Michael O'Brien

Posted on 01/07/2011 11:18:15 AM PST by Justaham

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.

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.

All of that Botox has seeped into the stupid old bitch’s brain. Obamadinejad is history in 2012, and so is Pelosi’s speakership.

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.

They can’t blame their losses last year on Bush.

That meme is getting old real fast.

“They can’t blame their losses last year on Bush.”

Doesn’t mean they won’t try...

I encourage the rats to spend the next two years reminding people that their top priority is to return Nancy Pelosi to the speakership.

They came into power in 2006 and increased their margin in 2008 only to lose big in 2010. Nancy’s butt marks in the sofa have barely cooled. This woman is the height of arrogance. This is the woman who claims that unemployment benefits “stimulate the economy”. This is the woman who went to Syria and grovelled before Assad with a schmata on her head. This is the woman who called Obamacare a “present for the American people”. The biggest present would be if she never darkens the steps of Congress again.

The Dems DESERVE everything bad to happen to them for re-electing this SOW PIG/BITCH of a “women” to “leadership”. We need to grind ALL Dems and RINOs into a fine powder and flush them into the DC Sewer System.

Bingo.

If she is what stands for the Dems, they haven’t got much to stand on.

Look for her and her midget minded minions to do all they can to destroy America.

If they figure out that the only reason they lost this go-around is that they weren’t liberal enough, we’re doomed.

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."

The Dems ran "moderate" candidates in GOP districts, won those districs, and their message was "Bush's Fault"!

That was the entire plan, Nancy. It won't work again.

Until a cure for AIDS dementia is found San Francisco will continue to re-elect the nasty beotch. As a negative exemplar of the Cultural Marxism infecting the country maybe that is not all bad.
