    I think the best analogy to this ridiculous decision by Dems is that to the Minnesota Vikings and Favre. Not only are they both hated by the majority of people at this point she's failed in the biggest situation(just like Favre in the NFC championship game) and is so far past her prime that she's not only bringing down others but embarrassing them to a point that their entire careers are now questionably headed in a positive direction – Peterson is taking a hit this year based on his avg/run just like anybody that voted for Pelosi has and will take a hit on their voter support.

    On behalf of the conservative community, let me say "thank you" to the Democrats for their latest act of insanity.

    The Democrats are gluttons for punishment. They can't wait to lose more seats in the House and Senate and the Presidency.

    Good, we need her strength and determination. We don't need any more Blue Dogs like Shuler.

    It's always fun to see if your comment gets posted or not-NOT most of the time.

    Yesterday, Reid was reelected Senate majority leader. Today, Pelosi is elected house minority leader.

    And they say that Republicans have nothing but retreads? Give me a break.

    Thank God. I was worried that democrat liberals might have gotten the message from the last election and put someone in that does not call hardworking American taxpayers names and demean and degrade them. But being good liberals, the proved that they are quite deaf, and will never take personal responsibility for anything.

    Insanity: To keep doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result.

    Delusion: Pelosi still thinking she did a good job.

    Denial: Democrats continuing to blame others for their "shellacking".

    Obama: Number one victim of his party's insanity, delusions, and denials.

    Republicans: Main party to benefit from Democrats' insanity, delusion, and denial.

    Hillary: The REAL (should have been) "The One".

    Great news! Go Nancy! I am sick and tried (more disgusted) with republicans telling democrats what they should or should not do (even with members in their own party). She has guts and I love that in ANY person. I only wish our president would stand up like her and take control. I am so disgusted with democrats, I am now a newly registered independent. I want them to STAND UP AND FIGHT instead of running away. This is great news. I am behind her 100%.

    I like Pelosi, at least should stands up for what she believes in, right or wrong. If some of you men Democrates stood up like her we would not be in this mess. When I see these COWARDS on TV and on these useless news sites stating she lost us the mid-term, i think to my self these nutless guys don't have a clue.. You gutless guys lost because you had no back bone, you let the Rep's and the media dictateto tempo.... Grows some nuts....
