Democrats Select The Next Speaker
The Democrat Caucus has selected Pelosi as their candidate for Speaker, which all but guarantees her win for the bid in the next Congress. Fox News reports:
House Democrats tapped Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday as the party’s nominee for speaker — but the political powerhouse is still fighting to lock down enough support to secure the gavel in January’s floor vote as some Democrats call for new leadership.
Those tensions did not appear to be on display Wednesday. Pelosi, who faced no Democratic challenger, won her party’s nomination during the closed-door House Democratic Caucus leadership elections at the Capitol. But she still faces a final floor vote with the entire House of Representatives on Jan 3.
Democrats on Wednesday also elected Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer for majority leader and South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn for majority whip. New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries was elected as Democratic caucus chairman, after running against fellow Congressional Black Caucus member Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif.
Pelosi, speaking to reporters after the vote, expressed confidence that she will win the speakership in January, saying, “I think we’re in pretty good shape.”
Pelosi’s leadership will solidify her grasp on the Democrat party, but also postpones new blood in the Democrat caucus, which will face a leadership crisis when she inevitably steps down from power.
What did the Lord tell the wealthy land owner, when he planned to tear down his barns to build larger barns to store his anticipated wealth? This very night you will lose your life!
Two years of laughter? Comin’ right up.
I fail to understand whyPresident Trump would support Pelosi As Speaker of the House? She has been against President Trump from the beginning? She has conspired and plotted against him from the beginning. I say it is a very bad move.
I think that Trump knowing that there would be no chance of a Republican as Speaker so the next best thing would be Polosi because she is mentally loosing it. She may not be as stable in her decisions as they would expect.
Daniel Mount. It is not so much that Trump supports Pelosi as Speaker. Trump has no say about the issue. He is not a member of the House of Representatives.
The country has gone completely bat crap crazy!!! That woman belongs in a rubber room!!! What the f**k were you thinking??? Don’t you remember her behavior at the state of the Union speech? She’s a communist bitch who prefers MS-13 gang members over American citizens!!! WTF is wrong with you people???
You are so right on this one, she isn’t playing with a full deck. I have said for quite awhile that since she cares so much for MS 13 gang members, she need to have to put them up at her house, even tents in the front yard and port-a-potties also, and then she can pay to feed them.
impressive lineup of commie skunks (apologies to all skunks)
As if we didn’t see this coming . They stole every seat they have except where braindead and the dead voted . She can hardly speak a sentence without appearing she is on drugs . All I can say is the democrats had better lighten up . Because we are about to break all the laws like they have . We are tired of this lawless bunch. They are not our dictators and they certainly do not rule over us .
Piglosi will manage to accomplish NOTHING in the next two years !
Damned shame she will get her Taxpayer Plane back !
She should have to use that Witche’s Broom !
The Republican members of the House should just abstain from voting for “pelousy”. Doing such, as a big yawn to her lead on obstruction and resistance for the next two years. The GOP members of the House could catch-upon their card games together while the House convenes. Make sure to vote NO on any “demoncrat” bill before the text of the HR is finished.
Play their own games back on them- threaten to expose the crimes of any Demon-rat who votes for her & inevitably, the backlash will expose the corruption on our side of the aisle. Then, we can truly “Drain The Swamp” & get rid of the dead weight RINO’S all in one whack !!! They’ve proven beyond the shadow of a reasonable doubt that they are REALLY that F#@*ing stupid by their actions since we got a REAL PRESIDENT ELECTED & not another NWO plant. The traitors will go completely “scorched earth” on each other & eat their own. Yes, they really are that F#@*ing stupid !!! Why else do you think everything’s such a mess in D(istrict of) C(riminals) ??? C’mon, people………….
Nothing but bimbos selecting bimbos.
Since President Trump has endorsed Nasty Piglosi for the speakership, I hope she gets the job. Obviously, she has zero grey matter in her cranium. This is perfect for the GOP.
Nutty Nancy Piglosi was beyond words when she unexpectly won, saying, ” Bodup scullyup deerlingish stullyworton nullflop prismok daspertate nellum!
