Your attempt to frame Speaker Pelosi's tenure in an unflattering manner, oddly enough, helps bolster my point; she's effective. Effective leaders are good to have. That's why the Democrats would be wise to select her as Minority Leader in the next Congress.

History is full of effective leaders. "Effective" is not always the same thing as altruistic, honorable or unselfish. Many effective leaders, because of selfish, misguided or down right evil intentions, have caused mayhem, chaos and destruction in their societies. I need not name those of the past, as we all know who they are, but we are looking today at "effective" leadership in Iran, for example, which possesses the potential to threaten the uneasy stability of the Middle East, as well as the world at large.

Pelosi, behind the facade of a sweet and gentle lady, managed to browbeat congressional Democrats into passing a bill they didn't read which has long range negative consequences for everyone in the country. The Health Care Bill alone cost many congressmen their seats. With her sledge-hammer style gavel, she has shown her effectiveness. However, whether her leadership has benefitted either her party or the country is greatly in doubt.

She should step aside and allow someone with a different leadership style become minority leader. Winston Churchill once said that politics is the art of compromise. She doesn't know the meaning of the word.
Good Post. Sh*tplate is an idiot.

Who's side are you on? Don't give Obozo's minions good advice. Let them repeat their same mistakes. With Granny Pelosi at the helm, they'll be down to just her and Bwaney Fwank after 2012. You'll have to go on Ebay to find a Democrat. I mean, come on: "you have to pass the bill so you can see what's in it". You just can't make up sh*t like that! If Pelosi was my handpuppet, I'd have put those very same words in her mouth. No, actually she says things I'd never be able to make up as it seems to fantastic to be believable. She's an idiot savant f*cking genius, a veritable Einstein of gaffs and dumb pronouncements. It's as if she was working for the RNC, doing a skit on Saturday Night Live and demonstrating the affects of early dimentia - all at the same time.
Please, please elect Granny Pelosi again!
"Don't give Obozo's minions good advice."

Doesn't matter. They wouldn't listen anyway. They're way of thinking is 'right' to them, so they'll continue on thinking that way.

On second thought, she should stay. She can oversee the remaining destruction of her cause.

You have to understand the Nancy Pelosi is a Calif variety of Democrat. Arrogant, selfish and crippled by their sense of superiority over every one else in America.

They are driven to destroy most everything that once made America the envy of the World. Just look what Progressive agenda driven nonsense have done to the once proud Golden State.

The out come of trusting the Pelosians to make even small decisions with an eye to common sense and fair play will scare the beejeesus out of you.

I wish we could saw off those parts of the country and give them to China.

Hang in there.

America will be fine. America knows that Ego, with a heavy dose of self aggrandizement, is the most powerful emotion in a place like what remains of deficit buried California.

Take Heed America! Our State serves as the Canary in the Coal Mine and the Canary is dying on the Vine.
