    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
    source

    they're eatin their own to stay alive. go ahead dems. CHOW DOWN !!!!

    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.

    Am I the only one here who threw up a little in their mouth at the connotation of this thread's title? :eek:

    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.
