Posted on 01/30/2014 3:18:38 PM PST by seanmerc
With Rep. Henry Waxman's retirement announcement, many of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's top lieutenants are abandoning ship. Waxman joins his California colleague, Rep. George Miller, and Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia as close Pelosi allies to retire after this Congress. And after last year's 2012 elections, Pelosi's leading in-house strategist Jen Crider left her office, later announcing she was working for Microsoft.
Their decisions are as strong a signal as any that veteran House Democrats hold little hope of taking the House in 2014, and they probably are pessimistic about their long-term prospects for a congressional majority. Miller and Waxman would be in line to chair influential committees if their party took control of the chamber. A third Democrat, Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota, wouldn't commit to running again in an interview this week. He would be in line to head up the Agriculture Committee in a Democratic majority.
Democrats need to net 17 seats to hand Pelosi the gavel, and analysts expect little movement, with President Obama's low approval ratings and redistricting reducing the number of competitive districts.
The decisions by Pelosi's California allies also raise the prospect that the minority leader herself could decide to retireif not this year, then in the near future.

If she does, let me be the first to say “don’t let the door hit you in the [ample] butt on the way out, your majesty.”
Fat chance. That would mean she’d have to buy her own booze.
I think she has so much plastic surgery and drugs keeping her going that she will probably die (bug eyes staring) in a congressional session, and nobody will even realize she is dead until the janitorial staff is cleaning the chamber at night.
They say only the good die young.
She’s got about another 20 terms left in her.
Ding dong the witch is dead..
Please God, please!
The living dead can only be stopped by a stake through the heart or a gunshot to the head....
IMHO, she isn’t going to retire until her lights go out while she’s sitting on her ass behind her desk and they wheel her out of her office on a gurney with a sheet over her head. She loves pissing off Americans and isn’t going to give it up any time soon. It’s a commie thing.
The bill for just the BOOZE on her airplane for ONE year was OVER ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS..!
She also more than once diverted her huge plane thousands of miles simply in order to pick up CHOCOLATE COATED STRAWBERRIES.
She and her husband own a vineyard, so that shouldn’t be a problem. In typical royal fashion, this great pro-union couple refuses to allow their vineyard workers to unionize.
If that were to happen you just know a political nuke was about to level Washington.
They know with Obozo sinking there isn’t a chance in h@!l they’ll retake the House any time soon.
Oh, no! Where will we get our comedy? All the round-eyed, pictures... All the idiotic quotes... Naaa... I say, “Two more years!”
We should be so lucky.
Well, it makes sense. She’s already made her fortune, and probably won’t see a House majority again in near future. She can’t really wring anything more out of the public for her personal gain, so why not retire?
or, she might expire on the plastic surgeons table
Better sell your Botox stock, just in case.
Just what we need. NOT!!!
Well since she applauded as Obama basically all told them they are no longer relevant, perhaps she will see no need to stay in an ornamental congress....
CONFISCATE all assets of those socialists. They have “ erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”
Socialism Is Legal Plunder
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM
You’d think she knows all about being irrelevant.
“Pelosi (Jr) serves as Senior Vice President of Business Development at InfoUSA where he is responsible for identifying acquisitions and organizing programs to develop effective strategy for reducing waste and promoting greener practices in the market research industry.”
Where would the country be without these people?
The only way Nancy will leave is if there’s no money left in the public treasury to steal.
Pelosi/Reid certified Soebarkah, an illegal alien with ZERO FORMS OF I.D.
He became their candidate and won. Twice.
He’s not a citizen of any kind.
No birth cert.
STOLEN SSN #042-68-4425.
He’s an indonesian or Pacific Islander, posing as a ‘Black’ man for political advantage.
He’s a muslim. Most likely a foreign agent of IRAN or the defunct USSR.
If pelosi hasn’t croaked from old age, she’ll land in prison for this.
She’s too stupid to leave.
roflmto....very funny. I do pray regularly that she and Harry Reid go to a nursing home staffed with all conservatives, who lost their insurance because of Obama Care.
Was he the Pelosi son that did all those terrible mortgages prior to 2008 crash?
About 100 years further ahead.
The mortgage company Pelosi son worked for was Countrywide something??? Do you remember?
I wouls rather see “shoes first!!!!
As long as the pubbies can maintain firm control of the House, I think we should keep her around just for the levity. You know, like the village drunk.
Be still, my heart!
The obamacare albatross is hanging around her neck.
I'm sure Paul, Jr. is just the tip of the "next generation" iceberg. After all, Soros has children who will soon take over the "family business", too. Certain people will have to be, shall we say, positioned for maximum opportunity.
I do know this: I sat next to him at many 49er games over the years (the Pelosi's had two seats next to mine and the two behind that. This was from '94 until some time after she became speaker. The kid was dumb as a stump (football wise). His sister knew the game better!
Love the cartoon, all it needs is an outstretched
arm holding a giant gavel coming from underneath
She is already dead, she aint fallen over yet.
I believe Pelosi is epoxying her fingernails to toughen them up for hanging on to her office. She means to leave her seat in a box a long time from now.
These announcements actually shock me.
I thought it was the goal of most everybody in Congress to go from the Capitol bldg to the mortuary.
I count 49 members of the House at age 70 or older.
Melt her down and recover the fiberglass...
That wasn’t a cupcake?
What was it?
Ok, I’m sorry, I should have used it’s specific name.
Sorry, my mistake.
