Defeated Dems to Pelosi: No mas!
The Republican Tsunami smacked down Democrats at all levels of state government last Tuesday. But that’s not stopping Nancy Pelosi for making an arrogant move to make a go for majority leader of the now much-smaller Democratic caucus in the House.
This is such a bad idea for Dems that even the New York Times is trying to talk her back from the ledge.
Now, defeated House Democrats are begging Pelosi to put
the insanity bitterness and partisanship aside, and step aside for the good of the party:
FOX has obtained a letter being penned by defeated House Democrats that implores House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to step aside.
The letter is now circulating Capitol Hill and has not yet been sent to the Speaker. FOX has obtained draft language of the letter.
In the draft of the letter, the members say that they were “victimized by a national wave of resentment toward Democrats, a wave that ensnared you along with us.”
The letter goes on to say “Madam Speaker, fairly or unfairly, Republicans made you the face of the resentment and disagreement in our races. While we commend your years of service to our party and your leadership through many tough times, we respectfully ask that you step aside as the top Democrat in the House.”
The letter says that the defeated members “fear that Republicans will further demonize you, and in so doing, they will scare potential candidates out. The prospect of having to run against their own party leadership, in addition to their Republican opponent is simply too daunting.”
The lawmakers also say that “one mark of a strong leader is the ability to discern when it is time to pass the baton” and calls this a “dark hour.”
The letter closes asking Pelosi to step aside.
Hey, remember two years ago? When liberals and the media were proclaiming the end of the Republican party? How Democrats were on the verge of majorities to last for generations? Yeah. About that.
