Nancy Pelosi: Democrats should skip the convention By: Tim Mak July 18, 2012 07:59 AM EDT
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi says that Democratic members should stay home and campaign in their districts rather than go to the partys national convention in North Carolina.
Im not encouraging anyone to go to the convention, having nothing to do with anything except I think they should stay home, campaign in their districts, use their financial and political resources to help them win their election, Pelosi said in an exclusive interview for POLITICO Lives On Congress, a new weekly show to be streamed live on POLITICOs website and broadcast on NewsChannel 8 on Wednesdays.

The California Democrat suggested that since Barack Obama is an incumbent, there is less of a need for Democrats to attend the convention.
We nominated a president last time. We have an incumbent President of the United States. Were very proud of him. There certainly will be enough people there to express that pride, but Im not encouraging members to go to the convention no matter what the situation was, because they can be home. Its campaign time. Its the first week in September, she said.
In addition, Pelosi also wouldnt commit to serving in the leadership of the 113th Congress.
I wouldnt assume anything, she told POLITICO editor in chief John Harris and reporter Lois Romano. I would just assume that Democrats would win and we would stop the obstruction of the Presidents agenda. I think its fair to say that most people dont have the faintest idea about leadership races in the Congress.

Don’t want any embarrassing questions floating around in the national spotlight, now do we?
Obama's opening line....I know that you are all working your districts rather than attending the convention and I applaud you for all your efforts. Blah blah blah.....
John - you’re probably all over this already, but this one’s for you ... made for satire!
Nancy wants her Speaker’s gavel back. It ain’t happening.
I hope the businesses of Charlotte take note of this advice from Pelosi.
Nazi realizes that no body wants to attend.......
From your lips to God’s ear............
That sounds EXACTLY like something Obummer would say
This call is going out HARD. I’m starting to believe that there is one of two things that is going to happen at the convention.
1. A political Coup is going to take place against Obama.
2. Something very bad is going to happen and it’s going to be blamed on the Republicans.
This call for delegates to stay home is very interesting. It’s also almost desperate. This could be quite entertaining when the convention happens.

Your Post #6 makes a good point. BTW, being a Texas girl in PA, what is your gut feeling? Can Romney take PA this Election.
Boy was N.C. hoodwinked! Nancy seems desperate, deranged yet dangerous to us all.
I do think you have it right.
It’s because they’re communists but didn’t become communists on their own.
Whoa- General Pelosi just gave her democrat troops unscheduled leave during the democrat presidential nominating convention
Every congress critter out campaigning during the convention ought to be asked why they are disrespecting their own party’s sitting president ...?
Could it be because Barry is keepin’ all the pie he is collecting in Mahattan and Gollywood and not sharing?
Pelosi’s getting out in front of a parade... she knows something... big and bad enough NOT to share.
>> Nancy wants her Speakers gavel back.
...and I’d like to see them *give* it to her!
Back door... hammer head first.
“I think its fair to say that most people dont have the faintest idea about leadership races in the Congress.
