Nancy Pelosi Could Be On The Verge Of Final Defeat

It was a brutal election for Democrats.

Not only did Hillary Clinton fail in a spectacular fashion, but the Democrats belly flopped in their quest to win back control in Congress.

And this disaster could have career ending implications for Nancy Pelosi.

Nancy Pelosi has been the Democrats leader in the House – first as Minority Leader, then as Speaker, followed by another stint as Minority Leader – since 2003.

During that time, the Democrats were routed in the 2004, 2010, 2014 and 2016 elections.

Some Democrats are now wondering why a failed leader should continue as their highest ranking elected House member.

And Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan may be one of those rank-and-file members also questioning why Pelosi should retain power after so many losses.

Politico reports he may be considering a run against Pelosi for Minority Leader:

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) is considering challenging long-time Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for the Democrats’ top House leadership post, as the party grapples with its Election Day debacle.

 

“This is very serious. This is not a lark. This is not a stunt of any sort. There are a lot of people who are calling him and want him to run,” said a Democratic member who’s backing Ryan but asked not to be named…

 

…This is absolutely not a publicity stunt. He never had the ambition to run for leader but after last week’s election results and the phone calls he had with his colleagues, he’s open to the idea. He’s not ruling anything out,” the spokesman, Michael Zetts, told POLITICO.

 

The Democratic lawmaker backing Ryan said support is building for a leadership shakeup after last week and took issue with the dues criticism.

 

“This is not the time to start taking pot shots,” said the member, referencing Ryan’s delinquent dues specifically. “We have lost election after election after election and our leadership doesn’t even want to discuss it with it. They don’t want to hear our concerns.”

Some Democrats are concerned that Pelosi – who hails from San Francisco – is a symbol of the cosmopolitan social liberalism which has so alienated working class white voters in the Rust Belt.

Some pundits contend the Democrats’ slavish devotion to social liberalism and identity politics has turned off Americans in Middle America who hold a more traditional outlook on life.

Politico also reports:

“Ryan could be appealing for some Democrats who worry that the party has moved too far left, leaving behind the working class voters who long made up an integral part of its base.

 

Youngstown, the old manufacturing city that’s so blue-collar Bruce Springsteen wrote a song about it, sits in Ryan’s northeastern Ohio district. The Rust Belt district is made up of a predominately white working class, with nearly one-third employed in manufacturing or retail jobs and a median household income of $42,000, according to 2015 Census data.

 

The area has been represented by a Democrat since the mid-1970s — Ryan won his race overwhelmingly with 68 percent of the vote this year — but leaned toward Donald Trump in the presidential election.

 

“One thing is clear—the Democratic Party is getting wiped out in rural America. Our party isn’t spread out enough for just the urban and suburban vote to carry these states,” said Wisconsin Rep. Ron Kind, who spoke to POLITICO late last week before the Ryan news.”

While a challenge to Pelosi makes sense given the party’s continued electoral losses during her tenure as leader, she is still a very successful fundraiser – and the Democrats are down to such a bare bones minority that the far-left liberals who Pelosi counts on as her strongest backers will now wield outsized influence in the caucus.

Conservative Revival will continue to cover new developments in this race.

    She needs to go..she is so far left no one can see the right..She hasn’t done anything but run her mouth, so what she is a fundraiser..big deal, just lining her pockets..even her own party is leaving her..

  • Kathy H

    I thought she sounded brain dead years ago. I could never understand her jibber-jabbering!

  • Bill Cash

    The house would do themselves and the people a great favor by getting rid of Pelosi Galore. But it won’t happen. There are too many of the congressmen and people like Rahm Emanuel who have had their hands in her panties in the past to risk exposure. So Pelosi Galore will remain.

      There are big piles of pelosi all over the capitol and its starting to smell very bad.

  • Mark Kuykendall

    You know the Botox Queen won’t go without a fight.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    pelosi another criminal who needs to be in a padded cell

  • Harley Stark

    I hope so, i can’t stand this woman, she is someone that lies, cheats, steals and whatever she has to do to push her narrative. She is a lot like Clinton, just a total bitch that is very sneaky with what she does.

    Does the greater blame rest on the “leader” who said “we have to pass it to see what is in it”, or does it rest on the “followers” who didn’t know any better and DID “pass it”?

  • George

    She is a stubborn Democrat only looking out for herself and not the people of America.

  • Hillyard Hellraiser

    Don’t be fooled. Many people from Ohio that I’ve talked to say he is a political whore, and only appears when there is a photo-op.

    PELOSI is a POLITICAL WHORE, GIVING AWAY WHATEVER TO ENHANCE HER STATUS IN POLITIC’S. and with this statement from blacks wanting to take over the Democratic Party, it will surely die. I really don’t believe what is happening to the Democratic Party now. “WE DON’T NEED WHITE PEOPLE LEADING THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY RIGHT NOW”. I tell you what, IF STATEMENTS LIKE THAT KEEP COMING OUT OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, THE PARTY WILL NEVER RECOVER BECAUSE OF ITSELF. You self-centered, self-important, arrogant BLACK LEADERS need a reality check. How much more do all nationalities in the Democratic Party have to tolerate from the black community????? It appears every time you put a black in charge, graft, corruption, bribery, extortion, favoritism, kickbacks, complete liars and on and on. Look at what all the democratic party and America have endured for the past 8 years; OBAMA, MICHELLE, HOLDER, LYNCH, JEB, THE CLINTON’S (SELF PROCLAIMED BLACKS). THERE HAS BEEN WHOLESALE CORRUPTION, PROVEN, PREJUDICE AGAINST ALL NATIONALITIES EXCEPT BLACKS AND MUSLIMS! The arrogance and condescending attitude from these leaders especially the president is unprecedented in their actions. It appears their America is like a Chicago Ward where small time mafia type rule is common place. Look below for the rest.

    NOW EVERYONE HAS TO REMEMBER, THERE ARE ONLY 13.8% BLACKS IN AMERICA, EVEN WITH 100% OF THE BLACK VOTE, NATIONALLY IT HAS NO EFFECT. PROOF, HAVE A BLACK PARTY, LIKE YOU HAVE ALL TYPES OF BLACK ONLY EVENTS AND SEE WHERE IT GETS YOU. The only reason OBAMA got in was everyone was afraid to say or do anything like his birth certificate, social security card, birth documents in a foreign country, his relatives statements because OBAMA was black. It was you, “STUPID WHITE VOTERS” and dumb ass college unknowledgeable kids that wanted to be a part of history and elect a BLACK MAN for president, the hell with truth, justice or especially AMERICA. The misfit you elected has done more to hurt AMERICA than any other President in history. He has done more harm to racial harmony setting things back 50 years or more. He is pouring MUSLIMS into America to BREED, AND TRY AND CHANGE AMERICA BY THE VOTING AND NUMBERS GAME. THE IMMIGRATION LAWS STATE, NO ONE WILL GAIN ENTRY TO THE UNITED STATES THAT COMES FROM A COUNTRY or RELIGION THAT STATES OR TENDS TO OVER THROW THE U.S. GOVERNMENT. THAT MEANS ALL Muslims ARE ILLEGAL. Wake up Democratic Party as I and countless millions of others are watching your direction which will make us decide to join the republican party or start a new party, like sanders movement.

    The democrats and Pelosi don’t get it, people want financial security (JOBS), religious liberty(TO BELIEVE IN AND UPHOLD THEIR VALUES), and constitutional rights? the American values that they are trying to destroy. That’s why they are failing they support and push every sick, twisted or bullshit cause or ideology for more government control and taxes.
