Jawoll, Jawohl, Ja!
Nein, nix, no!

I'm hoping and praying she does. She's the ultimate nitwit, and her, Reid and Obama are the perfect faces, the purest reflection of the Dem party. Perhaps Chuck Schumer would be even better than Reid, but Reid's absolutely top-notch nitwit material.

Personally if she cares about the Democrat party she should step down. Pelosi is unpopular and one of they key messages the Republicans ran on was "fire Pelosi." She is very far left and makes the moderates in the Democrat party look non existent. If she cares about her party she will not run for minority leader.

Don't you just love it when the OP Godwins the thread? Next!

Tell me Genius, and his Thanker Genius... where is the reference to Hitler, or do you see him at every turn when a modicum of German may be used... to break things up.

I'm guessing that because you spoke German, he equates that with Hitler. Because, as you know, ALL words that are German in origin mean there is a veiled Hitler reference.

Yes please! As much as the dems are excited about Sarah Palin being on the republican ticket for 2012, conservatives couldnt be more thrilled about the possibility of campaigning against all democrats using the Reid/Pelosi/Obama triumvirate.

I thought of that, but voted no anyway. If there is any hope at all to get Dem votes on Rep bills, Pelosi needs to go. However, if she stays, that will be good for 2012.

If he'd have spoken spanish, he would have called him racist against the latino population.

I really don't think it matters. Whoever has the post will be demonized by the Republican media in tandem with Republican campaigning both issue and office driven. Obama will just have a new middle name (the old one being "Obama Pelosi Reid").

Some Republicans must really be pissed that Pelosi wins with overwhelming majorities each and every time. 70%, 80%, 85%.... I guess it must suck that they can't seem to find anybody to get her out.

I see nothing far "left" in her agenda..
But then compassion is anathema to conservatives.
Much as spinelessness is a Democrats curse...
Do the Democrats need a leader?

You are correct, any leader of the Socialists of Amerika Party (SAPs) will be hit hard. Simply because the SAPs are so far gone; basically they're USSR's Dream Team. Gorby really has to be pissed this crew wasn't around during his reign.

Pelosi is such an enormous talent, it would be a shame to see it go to waste. She has the goods, name recognition, inane mantra that just might help bring about the type of asskicking that would result in a Republican majority and major influx of Tea Party candidates across the board. Obama Reid Pelosi... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Then we'd be positioned to undo decades of a whole lotta crapola.

Go Nancy!

Do you ever get tired of denying what's right in front of your face?

Here is what I`m tired of:

I'm tired of people like you. People who are so intellectually bland that they need to concoct conspiracies to make themselves feel special. I have no doubt that you live a pretty boring life with a boring husband, boring kids and a boring job. You, like most people, are a boring person. You've probably never left the U.S. for anything other than a vacation. You've probably never read anything which contradicts your dogma. You probably don't even stray too far from FOXNews and Newsbusters. How could you? Straying away from people who support you in your beliefs would be a bad thing. You need to believe that there is a conspiracy because otherwise, your life is just boring and without much purpose. However, you're not alone. There are millions of people like you on both the right and left. You're bored with your lives so you need to believe there are lizards coming after you or that the government wants to put microchips in your head. You are playing make belief so that you don't have to deal with your boring reality. You are essentially a political version of people who believe the government is hiding something in Area 51. Only you`re toxic in your beliefs, you spew untruths to make you seem like you have some ultimate knowledge that the rest of world doesn't. If you were a left winger you'd be telling people Bush himself flew a plane into the WTC. If you were a Libertarian you'd be telling people the government wants to kill your kids with ObamaCare. You are a bottom feeder in the political world so you need to do something to boost your self esteem. Don't get me wrong, it's not conservatives I'm tired of. I'm tired of people who have delusions of grandeur hijacking political debates.

People like you and Zimmer.

But here is my advice to you because Zimmer is a lost case. You should really seek some help. What you are doing to yourself is not healthy. It's not good to spew lies. Specially when you know deep inside they're not true. I guarantee it because I've been there. I use to believe the military had gone to Iraq to kill people. This is regardless of the fact that I have several members of the military in my own family. I would tell the lie often just so that I had no doubt it was true because I needed it to be true as many of my beliefs depended on it being true. When I started learning about the military I realized, they're not killers. They're just trying to do their jobs. Once you open your mind to the world, you start realizing that it's a lot more boring than conspiracies make it out to be. People aren't trying to take your guns away. They're not trying to kill your family with universal health care. People aren't even trying to install communism in the U.S.; nobody cares about you anymore than they care about themselves. There simply isn't a conspiracy right in front of my eyes or yours. There isn't.

The world is a cold and boring place.

If it is any consolation, Obama had an abortive attempt at demonizing Boehner just prior to the election. It really was awkward, though. He isn't good at it. I don't watch MSNBC but I would bet Lorne Greene they are trashing the new (presumptive) Speaker of the House.

Eh Hat... hate to break it to ya... too late... the Reds aka SAPs are here already.
Some got their asses booted, and the next crop are on the way out in 2012.

Take a look at how much of the Commi Manifesto we've swallowed already.

Here is what I`m tired of:

I'm tired of people like you. People who are so intellectually bland that they need to concoct conspiracies to make themselves feel special.
No conspiracy... Milton Friedman accurately stated our med system was Commi before ObamaKare.
The Grating Society.
The Raw Deal.
Medicare.
Medicaid.
Schip.
Graduated Taxation.
Class Warfare.

And that's the tip of the iceberg.
I suggest you remove your head from your anus.

You've probably never left the U.S. for anything other than a vacation.

You've probably never read anything which contradicts your dogma. You probably don't even stray too far from FOXNews and Newsbusters. How could you? Straying away from people who support you in your beliefs would be a bad thing.
I've lived in more socialist countries than you've probably vacationed in. EASY... I've lived more than half my life outside the US... so save your lame smack for Amateur Hour Junior.

As for news... I've probably got a far more diverse palette... including foreign language news mein freund. Und du?

You're bored with your lives so you need to believe there are lizards coming after you or that the government wants to put microchips in your head.
Well, that's something the left would say about Bush 43. You smok'in dat **** mon?

What you are doing to yourself is not healthy. It's not good to spew lies. Specially when you know deep inside they're not true. I guarantee it because I've been there.
I used to be a socialist, so spare me the crap Junior. I kept an open mind and made a transition to conservatism over many years. So... put that in your pipe and smoke it. I know the left very well... I used to be one of the retards from that side. Thankfully I had some intellectual curiosity and a lot of exposure during years of travel. But I was young, and grew up in a socialist environment... so if you're fed crap... you'll most likely spew it... and I did. Boy... looking back... was I a moron.

People aren't even trying to install communism in the U.S.;
They're trying to install Euro-styled-socialism... which is socialist. Hell, some parliaments have Commies, and others like Greece are run by them.

There simply isn't a conspiracy right in front of my eyes or yours.
Nobody said it is a conspiracy... IT'S AN AGENDA... Big difference.

That you keep bringing up conspiracy illustrates how lame your rhetoric is. It didn't take long for the electorate to learn what Obama and his ilk's real agenda is... and upon learning the hard way... rejected it in historic fashion... which Americans tend to do.

It's why SAPs have to lie to get elected. Now they lie and have Journolists as their propagandists to further their AGENDA.

Don't Bogart that J my friend.

If you are on the right...Pelosi staying on as minority leader is one of the best things that could happen for the 2012 elections.

Pelosi as minority leader is to the right what Palin on the '12 GOP ticket is to the left.

why is that? are you saying that simply because the right opposes her she is a good choice? Isn't that the same logic that some on the right use to defend Palin? ie, the other side hates her so she must be good for our side?

There could be a benefit in a new Democratic leader in that there is a great deal of narrative investment in Pelosi by the Republicans. It will take a great deal of time to work up the same level of animus from their supporters in someone else. I think that is why they were so upset during the Democratic primary of 2008; they had a lot built up in the Hillary Bank and wanted her as a Democratic candidate. The new guy threw them for a loop.
