FINALLY:They’re Calling Nancy Pelosi to STEP DOWN

Rep. Nancy Pelosi has spent the past several years of her congressional career barely conscious of what’s happening around her. From offering condolences on the death of a fellow House rep who was still alive to thinking George W. Bush was still in office, Pelosi has repeatedly made a fool of herself, and the Democratic Party.

What’s really sad is that this woman, who is clearly suffering from some mental issues (and that’s not a slight – it happens to some who reach old age), is still acting as the House Minority Leader! She shouldn’t be holding so prominent and consequential a position, and even her own party feels that way.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, is again being called on to step down, but this time the request came from a fellow female Californian in a top congressional leadership position.

Rep. Linda Sánchez, D-Whittier (Los Angeles County), the fifth-most-senior House Democrat, told C-SPAN Thursday: “I do think it’s time to pass a torch to a new generation of leaders, and I want to be a part of that transition. I think we have too many great members here that don’t always get the opportunities that they should.”

The remarks reflect a growing frustration among Democrats, who have been hemorrhaging seats at all levels of government nearly everywhere except California for nearly a decade, that the party doesn’t have a coherent, appealing message. Pelosi is stuck in the middle, seen as too progressive by heartland Democrats in swing districts and too much of a corporatist by progressive Democrats, where much of the party’s current energy lies.
