I have to hand it to the Republicans and conservatives on this one. They are playing this right. Pelosi is going to continue to drive the Democrats over the cliff and the best way to make sure it continues to happen is to demand she step down.

Liberals cannot stand for that and they are insisting she stay as minority leader.

Nancy Pelosi: 'We Don't Let Republicans Choose Our Leaders'-Gives Bush Tax Cut Compromise Big NO!


Speaker Nancy Pelosi: So Iím not looking back on this. They asked me to run, Iím running. We donít let the Republicans choose our leaders and again, our members understand, they made me a target because Iím effective, politically and policy-wise.

.................................

Speaker Nancy Pelosi will not give ground on her opposition to extending the Bush tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans, even as the White House and other Democrats have signaled that it might be time to compromise.

"It's too costly. It's $700 billion," Pelosi told NPR this morning. "One year would be around $70 billion. That's a lot of money to give a tax cut at the high end. And I remind you that those tax cuts have been in effect for a very long time, they did not create jobs."

4. finally somebody said it!! the republicans keeps saying we should

get rid of her. we don't choose their leaders, and they would not stand for it if we tried. They only oppose Pelosi because she is effective and they don't like that, so they are trying to make a stink and make them get rid of her, hoping the next guy will be more pliable to their will.Why would we want her to leave when it will become more and more clear that it is going to be more of the same we have had for the past 2 years. It will be even more of a route in 2012 than 2010.

Democrats kill the tax ... if it makes the economy worse, the public will blame them ( of course the denizens of DU will everyone else in the room) ; this what happens when what answers that make you feel good, instead of looking for an answer that works.
