I'm sorry...but Nancy Pelosi should go.

Part of The Cleansing. She's old school, and Republicans hate her as much as Satan himself. It would help move things forward if we had some new blood.

She's a dinosaur. I just don't think she's and effective leader. I don't want someone who will just go along with the GOP. I certainly want someone with more spine than Harry Reid over in the Senate. I just think if we're going to promote hope and change, maybe a little actual change is finally in order.

other than that, she hasn't been so bad. But I'd still like for her to take some hurt for that. I'm not saying she should've gone thru w/ impeachment, but at least keep it open as an option, for leverage on the B*shitter.

I stopped on one of the conservative radio stations to listed to their heads explode and they were talking about how McConnell has done an awful job pushing the "conservative agenda" in the senate and has been (believe it or not) "too willing to compromise". As they see it, McConnell isn't the hardcore conservative we portray him as, other senators and interest groups have to hold his feet to the fire to do the things he ends up doing.

because the democrats in congress were not fighting for it.

They have been the sorriest democratic members of congress I have ever seen and republicans know it. If not for Howard Dean and President Obama the truth is the democratic party would still be lost in the wilderness and racking up losses. Even that loser Terry McCauliffe is rearing his head again.

The only thing that changed and got us the Affordable Care Act was a new president with a new strategy. Just about every member of congress, including democrats, had sat on this issue for decades. I am glad there are some new faces and I hope we get more.

Here is the chance for Pelosi and Reid to really prove themselves. They have just as much at stake as the president. Congress is the branch that actually passes laws and voters have sent a message. I may be wrong and I hope I am because it will mean democrats in congress will start really taking progressive action.

If they got elected as Representatives (a natural career step for a retired senator, natch) then they have a clear path to becoming Speaker of the House. Someday.

Not understanding our system of government is different from acting deliberately to deceive, I think. I'd think it wouldn't be easy to survive long while astroturfing a place like DU. There are a lot of very clever people here who would manage to suss that out. Playing dumb isn't much of a strategy, so someone who doesn't know the difference between the Senate and the House wouldn't seem to be likely to be astroturfing. They're just being ignorant. Lots of that going around.

She's been one of the best Speakers of the House, she's pushed forward good legislation and kept true to Democratic principles, and has been one of the few Democrats whose spine has not dissolved in the face of intense pressure.

The Republicans don't like her, though, so let's replace her with someone meeker and more acceptable to them. Great idea. She will retire soon, though, so that's good news for you.

But they DO hate her. That's a fact. That isn't reason for her to go in and of itself, I just think she is tired and not a good representation of the Democratic Party anymore. We need to expand our base. Do you honestly think young people and new voters view her as an agent of change? I don't, and I'm 53. I just see her as another one of those entrenched old pols who has stayed too long at the fair.

But clearly, many DUers disagree with me. That's cool. I can accept that. That's what discussion is for.

40. I agree

She lost me after this:

The major elements of a bargain seemed to be falling into place: $1.2 trillion in agency cuts, smaller cost-of-living increases for Social Security recipients, nearly $250 billion in Medicare savings achieved in part by raising the eligibility age. And $800 billion in new taxes.


Secrecy would be essential as the details came together, the president told everyone. He spoke openly with Boehner about how the two sides might sell the emerging plan to their respective parties, an imposing task from either end.


A senior administration official said the White House team recognized that the two offers were coalescing and that the time for a decision was at hand. People asked themselves, the official said: Is this something we can sell? Is this a deal we can live with?


That night, Obama prepared his party’s congressional leaders. He warned Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) that he might return to the position under discussion the previous Sunday — that is, cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in exchange for just $800 billion in tax increases.

Would they support him?

The Democratic leaders “kind of gulped” when they heard the details, Daley recalled.


By this time, Obama had become the face of the bitter debt-ceiling talks and his poll numbers were dropping. His allies on Capitol Hill cringed at his predicament but also at what he was asking them to do.


Reluctantly, Reid and Pelosi agreed to do their best to support the plan.

46. For some contrast, consider John Boehner ... the LEAST effective Speaker in decades.

Boehner has been totally impotent in terms of managing his majority caucus. The teabaggers have told him where and when to jump, and he obeyed.

Pelosi was rather effective when she was Speaker, by contrast.

Should she go or stay? Let the House decide. But I'd say stay.

51. between the president, the senate leader and the house

she was clearly the most effective and pushing the most aggressive liberal agenda. It was usually the White House looking for stray conservative senate votes that pushed her house to the right in compromise bills. Her time as speaker was simply light years beyond the leadership before and after her. Since being minority leader is generally a thankless job who's main objective is to keep her caucus in line... I see no reason not to keep her. The time for "new" blood is when if the Democrats take the house again. But I find it silly to suggest she was either not effective, or not in tune with the modern democratic party. Look at her support and she is probably MORE in tune than much of the senate and white house.

53. Pardon the caps but WHAT PART OF SARCASM IS IT THAT PEOPLE DON'T GET???

There oughtta be sufficient cues in the OP to short-circuit this nonsense.

The OP was mocking the 3rd Way & the Appeaser faction who are ready to pitch SS & MC under the bus to accommodate the Republican obstructionists.

54. You know how to make a Republican hate you?

You stand up to him and don't follow orders or demands. You laugh in his face when he attacks and belittles you. But most of all, you just be yourself - a strong woman.

57. Nancy is great!

She's a savvy gal, has learned plenty from her mistakes over the past few years and will not go along to get along ever again.

She has seen The Beast close-up and knows her enemy.

The fact that the Republicans hate her is all to the good so far as I am concerned. So long as they are planning to obstruct anything that the Administration proposes - which they are and they will - even Christ himself would not satisfy them. Nothing will help move things forward except a complete change in mentality on their side.

Let Nancy be!

62. The only person I would want to replace her is

Alan Grayson. If you think the Republicans hate Nancy, you've seen nothing yet.

66. Yeah, but you know what name is being bruited about as her replacement?

Steny Hoyer.


Aaaaaack!

If that happened, it would probably be the first time in history that the Majority and Minority leaders are both Republicans.

68. The caucus has to approve that suggestion.

With the new and true progressives coming into Congress, I hope they can block anyone like that. However, I'm hoping Nancy stays on for at least another session.

70. Pelosi was one of the most effective Speakers of the House. Why would we want to get rid of her? n/t

71. All Repubs hate Dems. There will be no one they will hate less.

And who got the votes on health care for Obama? She did in the House. I think she is pretty loyal to President Obama. And sometimes old school is better then the crap the new tea party Repubs brought in with them in 2010.

75. This is not coming from democrats

if anything this rumor got started by the media and outside enablers.

Nancy is doing a swell job and has done so since, she has more brass balls than some men will give her credit.

If she decides she has taken us as far s she can, then fine.
