Democrats To Pelosi: "Step Aside!"

Nancy Pelosi has been asked in strong language to step aside and let someone else serve as Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, according to a letter obtained by Fox News, which reportedly read in part as follows.

Many of us want the chance to run again and reclaim the seats that we lost on Tuesday. With you as the leader of House Democrats, the hangover of 2010 stands no chance of subsiding. Many of us have run our last race but remain committed to our party; we want to help recruit successful candidates to run in our stead. Unfortunately, we fear that Republicans will further demonize you, and in so doing they will scare potential candidates out. The prospect of having to run against their own party leadership in addition to their Republican opponent is simply too daunting."

Unfortunately for the Democrats, Nancy Pelosi put a face on the Democratic Party that was easy to demonize. Her attitude was one of unsurpassed arrogance.

"Vote for the health care bill so you can find out what's in it." sounded like a three card monty game. She showed no respect for the good will and patriotism of her opponents. There are a lot of Democrats who want a living wage, a decent chance for working people of buying a home and a solid industrial base in the US who don't buy into abortion on demand, same sex marriage and a lot of other cultural baggage taken on by the Democrats.

I would like to see the Democratic Party that my parents supported, a party that would not plunge a religious Christian or an orthodox Jew into a crisis of faith about voting for it.

There is a real need for a Democratic Party that is pro civil rights without being pro affirmative action, a party that does not embrace a secular humanist agenda. Pelosi prsonifies the "We know what's good for you" attitude.

I voted straight Republican with no exceptions, yet I have grave reservations about the Republican party's empathy with working people. I am waiting for the Democratic Party to come to its senses. And I don't think that will happen unde Nancy Pelosi.
