Skip to comments.Will Nancy Pelosi Be the Next to Retire?
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.

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.
