Moderates Tell Pelosi They Need to Leave Town
Sep. 23, 2010 12:44 p.m.


Endangered House Democrats have to get out of town now -- and not stick around for votes on tax cuts -- if they are going to save their seats, retiring Blue Dog Rep. John Tanner (D-Tenn.) told Democrats at a Caucus meeting Thursday morning.

....


A sympathetic Democratic aide said the question now is whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) takes Tanner's advice.

"Is she going to let people go home or is she going to keep us here to take a tax cut vote that's really stupid?" the aide asked.

But Pelosi has been enamored of the idea, pushed by pollster Stan Greenberg, that a big tax cut fight will help energize the Democratic Party base heading into November.

Please Pislosi, stick around and make your selves look worse and waste your precious little time you have left to save your asses. I for one look forward to seeing them crowbar your stick fingers from our desk and drag you out kicking and screaming.
