Top on the list of Republican pariahs, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) remains indignant and resolute in the face of the historic majority gained by the Republican Party in Tuesday’s elections.
Despite the failure of her party’s message and the rejection of that agenda by voters, Pelosi appealed to her colleagues to keep her on at the helm, reports The Washington Times.
Blaming voter suppression for the losses, Pelosi declared, “To succeed, we must inspire, educate and remove obstacles to participation. Only by changing our political environment and broadening the universe of the electorate can we build a strong sense of community and an economy that works for everyone.”
Politicos predict Democrats in House will retain Pelosi as their leader which has Republicans cheering the move which they believe contributed to the disdain with which voters viewed Democrat rule.
Likewise, current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) vows to remain on as Democrat leader in the new session despite the massive loss of seats in the upper house.
The day after the election Reid pivoted from his usual incalcitrant tact in calling for mutual relationship with Republicans in which the two parties should “work together”.
