dems turn against pelosi to save they're own ass's. this party is in total collapse


Several endangered House Democrats think they may have found a way to escape voters' wrath in next month's midterm elections: run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Call them the anti-Pelosi Democrats who are openly opposing Pelosi for another term as speaker if their party can somehow maintain control of the House. Republicans are widely expected to make big gains in the Nov. 2

Meh, I have trouble believing them when the so-called "conservative" Democrats ended up voting for the health care bill. They'll put on a show, but once Pelosi (and possibly Obama) are out of the way, they'll be back to their old tricks again.

Yes but....what they pull is when they know they have enough safe votes to pass
a controversial bill, they get permission from her highness Pelosie to vote against
it (even though they are for it) so they can give the illusion of actually voting as the
majority of their constituents want them to.

They already had enough votes to pass the bill, pelosi allowed the Democrats that voted against the bill to do so because they were in conservative districts.
These people all dance to the same drum, don't be fooled.

Republicans dance to a different one? I mean, in big picture terms.

GOP:
Gov't Health care- NO
TARP- NO
Cap and Tax- NO

I'd say they dance to a different tune.:cool:
