  •  Republicans used her in scary ads all over. My (9+ / 0-)

    freshman congressman in MI had ads against him about how he "plotted" with Pelosi for dastardly things like pushing health care through and maybe killing santa. I forget.
    Then in my local papers comment section I'd see that accusation thrown about!
    She was their bogeyman. I'm sure they ran the ads all over.

    Pundits thought she should leave 2 years ago because of the loss.  
    Was it her fault? Hell no. Well maybe. She was quietly so effective she made republicans, so sweet and accepting by nature, not like her.

    Nate Silver predicted the 2010 sweep but I found it unbelievable. I understood unhappiness with situation but just because your momma doesn't cook your favorite meals you don't go running to live with your abusive daddy who doesn't feed you at all.
    But America did that.

    The Dem house got punished when they were the most efficient and effective branch of government we had. If they had had the say we'd have been a healthier, happier and better functioning America now.

    I am very glad that Nancy isn't stepping down.
    But I am worried about mitch. His party was expected to gain a lot of seats, gain the majority and they lost badly. Even 2 years ago his picks didn't make it. Plus he is 70 years old and I think he is badly constipated or something.
    I'm sure Luke will ask him. For the good of the party and all.
