The Dems Simply Don’t Get It

Fox News: Defeated Democrats Pen Letter to Implore Pelosi to Step Aside

In the draft of the letter, the members say that they were “victimized by a national wave of resentment toward Democrats, a wave that ensnared you along with us.”

The letter goes on to say “Madam Speaker, fairly or unfairly, Republicans made you the face of the resentment and disagreement in our races. While we commend your years of service to our party and your leadership through many tough times, we respectfully ask that you step aside as the top Democrat in the House.”

The letter says that the defeated members “fear that Republicans will further demonize you, and in so doing, they will scare potential candidates out. The prospect of having to run against their own party leadership, in addition to their Republican opponent is simply too daunting.”

The lawmakers also say that “one mark of a strong leader is the ability to discern when it is time to pass the baton” and calls this a “dark hour.”

The letter closes asking Pelosi to step aside.

The Democrats still don’t get it.

If they maintain the same leadership, as Nancy Pelosi and Jim Clyburn certainly seem to be pushing for, it will be all too obvious that the Democratic Party has not listened to what was being said by the American people a week ago tomorrow.  And while this letter from House Democrats, on its face, might suggest that they have been listening, the actual contents of the letter says otherwise.

For the sake of the Democratic Party, Nancy Pelosi should not step down because she was “demonized” by Republicans.  She should step down because the American people have resoundingly repudiated both her actions and policies, and the long-term survival of the party she worked to destroy depends on her noticeable absence.  To continue to be relevant to more than just those who wish to perpetuate and expand our entitlement society, the Democratic Party must shake loose the far left influences which has dragged it down into record losses last week.

Was Pelosi “the face of the resentment and disagreement” in the races which culminated in devastating losses last week? Certainly.  But that alone, however, is merely the most superficial of reasons for which she should step aside.

    Is Obama delusional? eg 25th amendment delusional? Any doctors in the room?

    Heath Shuler, Democrat from NC-11 and former NFL quarterback, is confronting Pelosi on her bidf for House Minority leader. Here’s the story.

    Congressman Shuler is one of the 11 Democrats voting against HR 1, entitled “Making supplemental appropriations for job preservation and creation, infrastructure investment, energy efficiency and science, assistance to the unemployed, and State and local fiscal stabilization, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2009, and for other purposes.”

    Jeff asked us to thank those eleven Democrats for their NAY votes. (I hand-wrote each of them a snail mail letter.)

    The liberal Democrats will never get it. They whine and mutter, yet they fail to see how badly they and their administration have hurt the United States.

    Congratulations to Ms Pelosi on her minority leadership, our 2012 looks even brighter now. The ‘Democratic party’ (really now the Progressive party) is committing suicide.

    Will her eye tuck last two more years? Just sayin.
