GOP leaders: Pelosi may face uphill battle to retain House leadership

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) may not be able to claim that title for much longer, Fox News reported, citing recent statements from Republican House leaders. 

Though Democrats retained control of the House in Tuesday’s election, the margin was much slimmer than Democrat leaders hoped, raising questions about Pelosi’s ability to win re-election as Speaker.

Rep. Tom Emmer, (R-MN), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, commented: “I mean Nancy Pelosi doesn’t even have a majority where she can be elected speaker again, whoever would have guessed that it’d be possible that Nancy Pelosi might not be the speaker?”

Democrats spent millions of dollars attempting to flip more Republican seats but instead managed to lose seats in Florida, Minnesota, and Oklahoma — shrinking their majority.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) noted, “I know the vote on the floor is difficult for Speaker. I know there was a number of people who did not vote for her last time. And as our numbers continue to grow, I think at the end of the day, no matter where we end up, we’ll be able to have a very big say, or even run the floor when it comes to policy.”

Nancy Pelosi faced a difficult path to becoming Speaker in 2018, and her decision to stonewall on coronavirus relief has infuriated even her Democrat colleagues — setting her up for yet another close race for Speaker.

Fox News reported:

The House voice vote for speaker requires a majority.  Each Republican typically yells out the name of their party leader — in this case McCarthy — and Democrats announce their vote for Pelosi. With the numbers on their side, the party in power winning the vote is almost a foregone conclusion.

Pelosi has struck deals and maneuvered to squash internal challenges to her leadership before. She overcame defectors in the past, including those from moderate Democrats who had pledged to vote against her if elected. In 2019, there were 15 Democrats who didn’t support her, but she could afford the losses with a bigger majority.

No viable Democrat challenger has arisen as of yet, but with the focus on the drawn-out presidential election, attention has not yet been focused on the impending battle for House leadership.

Good Bye Nancy,
Time to get a Speaker who cares about the American People and the United States. Beside, San Francisco could use her undivided attention. I wish her the best.

Amen to that. She needs to be arrested for treason or sedition as a result of her attempt to remove the lawfully elected President Donald Trump, for her own political ends.

Jail is where she should be and let’s see if she can get her hair done there. But let’s pray a new speaker is a fair, reasonable, non-progressive, and a true American.

A big reason that Republicans, etc do not want to vote Democrat is becAuse of Nancy Pelosi. She is disgusting, tearing up the state of the union address, etc etc etc. If the Democrats want to get back into the grace of those who vote against them, one big plus that help them would be to get rid of Nancy Pelosi. And after that, if possible, get rid of sneaky Schumer, Nasty Nadler and Shifty Schiff.

The demonic-rats have turned our 3-tiered government into a 3-ring circus, with Pelosi and her supporters leading the way. To think, our Congress was once called “the greatest deliberative body in the world” Now look at it. Never reward a party for this kind of nonsense, or it will never go away. The out-of-power parties will just take turns trying to impeach the in-power party. Exactly what the founders warned against. But this generation of Americans did it anyway. Now we must all pay the price – which is chaos.

In all my years on this planet and being a military retiree, Not a fan of Demoncraps since the last real American Demoncrap that being President Kennedy, I have never seen such an awful Anti American Speaker such as Nancy. She needs to definitely be removed or our country will suffer more for her vengence towards the people she’s supposed to represent and help the country improve. Her entire term has been devoted to Anti Trump tactics. May she rot in hell.

My question is “How in the world are there so many ignorant people willing to give this freak of a woman so much power over them?”!! It amazes me that she has pulled so many disastrous stunts and the democrats just smile and say, “Isn’t she great?”! REALLY?!? How much does she get to rub their noses in her despicable power before they wake up???

Yeappers, she should have been more careful with her loose lips, now the ship is sunken
Not to top it all, with the hairdresser fiasco and LYING about it
Never sucked up to her responsibilities at any angle
Better take those designer curtains with you, Pelosi on the way out with the door shutting hoping you won’t get booty kick if you’re not out fast enough

Nasty Nancy acts like a mob gangster. Our Forefathers never intended for that kind of person to be in Congress. But, then they, also, never intended for there to be a cesspool of a deep-state.
Democrats will vote for her again because that’s the way the mob runs things: pay them to vote for her or 86 them.

Just think people. If Biden gets in as President, the Democrats will eventually say he is not mentally capable of being the President and Harris will become the President. Now that alone could may one sick at the stomach, but if something would happen to Harris, Pelosi would be in line. Now, that’s really is a sickening thought. Yes, Pelosi needs to be gone, because she is in Soros’s back pocket, no doubt about it. With his corruption on top of her corruption, that would make for a “yes we can put the US under”. It might happen anyway with Biden and Harris in office. We really have a big mess in the U.S. Thank God, the Senate is more Republican.

Did everyone in the House forget Pelosi’s promise? She said if you would allow her to stay one more term, she’d retire. But she lied, as always. Now she’s trying to run again. Make the slug of a woman stick to her promise. We want her gone. She’s the reason the Dems may lose. Get rid of her.
