Did the dems lose because of Nancy Pelosi?

She says noway! AND here's her take on why she was 'taken down'

"The reason they had to take me down is because I've been effective in fighting special interests in Washington, D.C.," Ms. Pelosi said, citing the health insurance and financial services industries. "I'm effective. They had to take me out. I'm also the most significant attractor to support for the Democrats."

  • It's official, the Botox has reached the brain. You know I can't decide if she is really that stupid or so power hungry she can't see reality...which would make her that stupid!

  • Nancy doesn't think she's Speaker, she thinks she's Queen.

  • She is right though. She was effective. Just effective in passing things without reading them, and pushing agenda without regard to the consequences or considering whether it was something tax payers were receptive to. She had to be taken out because we need balance of power. It was either her or Reid and it turns out it was easier to get her out because of how many seats were up for grabs. It's sad that she can't even consider that even a percentage of the table turning could be a referendum on how she ran things. Most people don't want their government telling them that they know better than the individual what is best for them. Arrogance can end up being a career killer.

  • No. They lost because people wanted a balance

  • YSK...

    That is soooooooooo funny. I know her plastic suregon (or at least one of many that she see's often) and i was going to say that her botox might be getting to her. LOL!

    The plastic suregon is my aunt and a republican so i asked her if she made her face look that way on purpose :)

    I know, right...Her practice (which is more like a resort) is right outside of D.C. so she has lots and lots of exciting things to tell us during the holidays (and all kinds of freebies that companies send her for promo).

  • Nope. The old answer has never changed: "It's the economy, stupid."

  • They lost because they are out of touch with the American people. Pelosi is just mad she won't on TV as much now and probably will have to start flying commercially because she isn't two heartbeats away from the Presidency.
