Speaker Nancy Pelosi will relinquish the gavel to the perpetually tanned, lachrymose Republican leader John Boehner when the new Congress convenes next January. It will be four years after that January 4, 2007 day when she "broke the marble ceiling" and became the first woman Speaker in the two century history of the House.

At the time, Republican pundits mocked Democrats for the choice of a "San Francisco liberal" woman as Speaker, suggesting she'd be a weak leader, unable to control the conservatives in the ever disputatious Democratic party, and easy to burlesque in campaigns across the country.

But this was Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi, raised in a tough Baltimore Italian political family, who imbibed politics with her mother's milk. Republicans soon discovered that Democrats had chosen not just the most progressive, but also the most effective and powerful Speaker in memory.


This is a fitting tribute to a remarkable leader as she relinquishes her post early in January and becomes House Minority Leader of the Democrats.

I've seen very little good about her on ATS; most of the threads and posts I've seen have been virulently, spitefully, contemptuous of her, often attacking her personal appearance rather than the issues she stands for. This is possibly because the political grounds for the attack are difficult to justify. It's hard for some to admit that she is an effective leader, whether they agree with her positions on the issues or not.

But she'll be back, in a less prestigious role, in the new Congress next year. She will still be fighting for her progressive agenda.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi will relinquish the gavel to the perpetually tanned, lachrymose Republican leader John Boehner ....

Far left Huffington Post eh?
It should read more like this -
Due to the fact that 'We the People' were extremely unhappy with the senate and congress; 'We the People' voted shrill stone-faced (with that painted on fake smile) Nancy Pelosi and her radical left wing agenda OUT of the position of Speaker of the House. Incoming Speaker of the House Republican Leader John Boehner will, attempt to raise the approval rating of the house and senate out of the single digits.

*I'm sure he wont' get that approval rating up, but he certainly can't do much worse than Pelosi



This is a fitting tribute to a remarkable leader

WHO are you talking about?

She will still be fighting for her progressive agenda.

Yeah .. cuz' it's sooooo wanted by the American people, right?
Considering her approval ratings and the approval ratings of the house and senate ... NOPE!
But of course her massive ego won't allow her to see that.

As far as looks go, she's kind of an attractive woman (for her age)
I have seen worse,(Barby Bush come to mind) Nancy, though is not that bad.
But in my opinion ...
Other than that she's anti-American,anti-freedom, anti- Liberty,and a Traitor.

Just say'n... BrainGarden.

I hate her with a fiery passion. Such a pretentious little bitch. I don't care for any of the politicians on the HIll, except for a very select few, but I have a special place reserved in my heart for hate directed at her.

FlyersFan, I respect your posts even if I usually don't agree with them. You always state your position well and back it up with good examples.

To dispute you, however, I would like to remind you that it was a majority of the American people who elected Barack Obama in 2008. That majority included some liberals who were disillusioned that Obama was not progressive enough, and many of these were too apathetic to turn up and vote last November. The right was in there campaigning enthusiastically for their candidates and they won some seats.

A few seats doesn't prove that the majority of Americans are far to the right.

Well, I don't know about all of that but I can say this....

That crazy Bit.. won't be forgotten anytime soon.

It is going to take a lot of work to erase her from Washington's memory (and ours).

At least we can thank her for her aiding in the demise of the Democrates in the 2010 election. Just wait to see what gets drug up (about her and what she has been doing) when the Republicans start investigations.

Don't forget, her and her spouse benifited improperly from the Banking/TARP deal (it is alleged). I think we will see her up on Ethic charges within a year.

I agree, are you really serious?! I'm so glad that nut is out of the tree. Totally out of touch with constituents, out of touch with reality---she was (in my opinion) just more interested in going down in history as the first woman to hold that job, instead of actually DOING the job.

Okay.

I would like to remind you that it is now two years and an election cycle since then.
I would like to remind you of the extremely low approval rating that the house and senate have.

I would like to remind you of the will of 'we the people' who KNEW that by voting a turnover this past November, it would mean kicking Nancy Pelosi out of her position.

I would like to remind you that Obama's approval numbers are well below 50%. Last one I saw by Rasmussen or Gallup (one of those big names) was something like 43%. MANY of those who voted for Obama were really just voicing disapproval of Bush. And lets face it, many voted for Obama because he's 1/2 black. Obama went from an approval rating of 77% when he started, down to 43% just two years later. Why? Because America doesn't like his policies. Even though during the election he said he'd 'fundamentally change' America, people weren't hearing that because they were too busy shouting the cute 'yes we can' phrase (that he stole from a communist workers union btw).

Just reminding ya' back.

The majority of Americans are center-right... not far right.

The removal of Nancy Pelosi has eradicated a foreign disease, that has been known to cause cancer in rats. The removal of her socialist agenda is one step to a better America. Now if we can get rid of her cohorts like "Dirty" Reid, and the like....we all will be able to breathe a breath of relief.

Sestias-

You should check out the possibility of raising that toast on an Air Force plane. I don't know if she left any liquor on board her plane though.

I gave you a star and a flag for your bravery. Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Sincerely...Butcherguy.

The truth is, we the people should not be raising a toast to any of them, except perhaps Ron Paul. In fact, most Americans outside Washington DC can't afford to.
There is absolutely NO reason for the peasantry to acknowledge any so called accomplishment of the ruling class, because none of it is meant to benefit us. When are we going to get a clue?
Some of us understand the dire situation, and see the reality of it. Really, we should only celebrate their deaths as harsh as that sounds. They certainly don't give a crap about our deaths.

After today, Obama's accomplishments will raise his poll numbers considerably. He deserves to take a victory lap. Your news of his "death" is premature.

she is among the most disliked people in America. Not just conservatives and moderates, either. She is disliked by her own base.

She has done nothing politically that benefits America. She does a whole heap of things to benefit a small constituency back home, or her part. America takes the third row.

She presided over the most despised Congress in history. Compared to them, The People thought Bush was fine and dandy.

I could make fun of her looks. But it is far easier to pick apart her complete lack of professional accomplishment.

First off, a Star for all of the ATS members who are in check with reality (Merry Christmas).
Here is the reality of the current Rasmussen Reports.
www.rasmussenreports.com...
Unfavorable; Nancy Pelosi, 58%.
What?! You don’t believe Rasmussen? OK, here’s CBS;
www.cbsnews.com...
Pelosi: Favorable, 11%
And one more reality check with Gallup,
www.gallup.com...
Pelosi, 34% favorable!
She usurped her authority as the Speaker!
How can we ever forget her circus seal performance behind Mr. Obama during his State of the Union address?
Good riddance!

Sestias, surely you can't be serious.
Do you seriously believe she actually ran "the most open and ethical Congress in history"?

Enjoy your ignorant bliss, one day you will wake up to a stark reality; that ugly butch is an enemy to everything that stands for freedom, honesty, and every thing America was founded on, and should be tried and hung as a traitor!
