Skip to comments.Democrats Preparing to Oust Nancy Pelosi
Posted on 10/25/2012 4:04:36 PM PDT by RummyChick
House Democrats will hold their leadership elections on November 29, and the late date has led to speculation that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will step down and groom potential successors to take her place.
According to The Hill, some in Congress feel "Pelosi might be preparing to step down after 25 years on Capitol Hill, and that she plans to use her return in the lame-duck session to groom a challenger to Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), who is eager to move up the ladder."
Hoyer, Rep. James Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrats, and a new generation of Democrats have been waiting to move up the leadership ladder while Pelosi has been their leader for a decade.
The Hill notes younger Democratic leaders have been "anxiously" waiting for Pelosi to step down and her ten years as leader has been the longest stint in more than 50 years on the Democratic side of the aisle.
"Certainly we will see a generational shift, and that will be good," Pelosi said during the Democratic National Convention.

wow, ding dong the witch is dead?
I would be much happier to hear the republicans ditching Bonehead
Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaasssssssseeeeeeeeeee let it be The Washerwoman! Comedy 24/7!
As much as Pelosi deserves disdain, Republicans should WANT HER TO STAY as the Democrats’ House leader. Independents and many Democrats dislike her. Steny Hoyer is largely unknown outside of Hill circles (and, thus, NOT disliked) — but is unlikely to be any less LIBERAL. Point is, he could be more effective than the “everyone knows she’s a loony lefty” Pelosi can ever be.
Hey Nancy! Tell us about that “permanent Democrat majority” thing again!
Many of us were pleased as punch when they chose Pelosi, and I think we were right.
Who are we voting for now, and who is the worst choice for them to make from our perspective?
In other words Polousi is getting out while the get-ting’s good.
I wonder whose RINO "turn" it would be next?
Exactly. Way past time to dump Bonehead and the phones Cantor.
I agree. And throw out McConnell too!
If she’s going to choose the successor, expect another stark, staring loon for the Dem chair.
Hillary loaned her copies of those FBI files
The old goat should have ever been elected.
I oust Nancy Pelosi every morning.
From House Republican leadership:
Not inspiring, and not much chance of TEA party-type challengers.
Horrible mental image there!
“I would be much happier to hear the republicans ditching Bonehead”
Be careful what you wish for.
It is especially important to not only vote for the president, but to get as many conservative congresspeople, senators, and governors as well. We need as deep of a team as we can get. The democrats will be fighting between the Obama and Clinton factions for control of the democrat party. This may mean half the experienced democrats will be banished from leadership positios. They will need to raise up a whole new generation before they can take control again.
You mean the fool’s fool behind the “sequestration” U. S. defense giveaway?
“According to The Hill” LOL!
And there was a story run the other day that Dem senators might not re-elect Reid ML...
Wish Rs would use Nancy and Harry’s unpopularity as vigorously as the Dem’s media tries to negate it.
Could we be so lucky.
“....groom potential successor to take her place...”
I’m sure they could find a baboon at the local zoo for starters.
Gobble, gobble video?
You mean the fools fool behind the sequestration U. S. defense giveaway?
that be the one....
Ms P is stepping down?
She’s able to do stairs at her age? Good for her.
Unfortunately, this means that the liberal idiots have found someone who’s more insane than “crazy eyes” pelosi. It’s the eyes that give them away, and that pelosi lady is one crazy individual.
The dims need to select someone who will put America ahead of the party and their desire to be treated like royalty, and tha sure ain’t Steny Hoyer!
-——As much as Pelosi deserves disdain, Republicans should WANT HER TO STAY as the Democrats House leader. -——
I can’t disagree more....we need rational sane moderate democrats in the opposition party to get the country moving in the right direction....to work together....
The extreme left wing faction of the dem party need to be ousted....the leadership needs to be retired and replaced with party leaders who put country first and party second....I think they do exist but have been silenced by Nazi Peloai and her ilk....
I’ve considered your point.
Asking the GOP to keep Pelosi because she’s so obviously awful, isn’t all that different than asking the Italians to keep Mussolini in power as the Allies invaded Sicily
The reason why Pelosi is less bad (for the GOP) is because a sane, rational, moderate Democratic leader is NOT the current alternative. Anyone who’s paying attention knows that the alternative is Steny Hoyer, a lifelong doctrinaire, union-goon, no-tax-is-too-high leftist like Pelosi. I’d rather have an evil opponent whom the public SEES AS evil, than an evil opponent whom they fail to see as such.
