(CNN) - Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday she will run for minority leader, even as some moderate and conservative Democrats have said she should step aside.
Pelosi made the announcement on Twitter: "Driven by the urgency of creating jobs & protecting #hcr, #wsr, Social Security & Medicare, I am running for Dem Leader."
She is an I D I O T ! ! ! ! !
Get rid of her. She's a drag on the party. 21% approval amongst the American people, that includes Democrats.
You go Nancy. We need all the help we can get
Pelosi should run and I hope she wins.
More bad news for the Democrats.
Is this woman dense or what??
This woman has done enough! Her record speaks for itself. She needs to step down and give the American people a break.
Of course . . . because she didn't get the message clearly enough on Tuesday.
Nancy Pelosi has to be the most clueless member of the house. Does she not even consider that her policies were soundly defeafed?
The democrats would be very smart to NOT vote for her as minority leader. This is their chance to get someone new who would help them and that is not her. She isn't interested in the US jobs or anything. She wants only power. Please vote another deserving person into that position. She is dead wood and needs to bow out.
Please just go a way. Haven't you done enough damage already? Do you think you're the great savior of this nation or what? I already have a mom I don't need one in Washington trying to take care of me. I'm a big girl now! My mom taught me how to work hard and earn my way, not have somebody else take care of me like you seem to think you need to do.
Talk about an ego. Your party just got slaughtered, in large part thanks to your heavy-handedness, and you actually don't think stepping aside is the prudent thing? You actually believe you'll get the votes?
In a way, I hope she does. I left the party because of her and the current Democratic party is best represented by her. Good luck with it, guys.
Go Speaker Pelosi. I offer you 100 pc support.
She should step aside, it is clear that Americans whether democrats or republicans don't want her there. Her job is to work for the people not her own personal agenda and beliefs... On top of that she is awful
She should retire.
The fact that she will not is a sure sign of a mental disorder.
I'm a independent voter who in general, leans left, and I wish this whack-job would go away.
Good for her. She is a grand lady and history will prove her to be a visionary.
Pelosi should step down. She is a failed leader.
Great, psycho lady hasn't gotten the hint...
Hasn't she messed things up enough yet?
I think it's a good short-term strategy for her and the Dems because it counters the perception they're down and are simply going to rollover for the Republicans. If you look at the popular vote totals the Republicans claim of a mandate is false.
The down side is it truly is in both parties' interest to compromise otherwise the possibility of a third party entry in '12 goes up and that will threaten one of the major candidates. Pelosi is a die-hard partisan who will not compromise and a continuation of the current tone will not be helpful.
You ought to step aside. Staying in will only serve to hurt your party.
She really should step aside. The overwhelming democrat losses this past election can be attributed to her.
Hahahahahahaha Good Luck Nancy
