Pelosi indicates upcoming attempt for House Speaker could be her last term

There is good news from the 2020 election after all. Not only has the so-called “blue wave” failed to materialize for Democrats in Congress, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) may soon be riding off into the sunset.

Pelosi hinted that she may step down from her leadership position after serving the next Congress, Fox News reported Wednesday. The California Democrat has served in the House of Representatives as either Speaker or Minority Leader for her party since 2003. 

A reporter had asked the California Democrat whether she’d abide by previous discussions regarding term limiting leadership positions. “When that conversation took place, there was a move to put limits on the leadership and chairs of committees,” Pelosi told the reporter. “They said they were going to do it. They didn’t do it. Whether it passes or not, I will abide by those limits that are there.”

The reporter pressed her as to whether she was making a “Shermanesque statement” to that effect. “I consider this a gift and I can’t wait to work with Joe Biden,” Pelosi eventually said. “I don’t want to undermine any leverage I have but I made that statement.”

Pelosi’s Democratic colleagues have again chosen her for the speakership unopposed, but she won’t be officially voted in until the 117th Congress convenes Jan. 3. The full House of Representatives will vote on the position, so Pelosi will need 218 votes out of a possible 435 which she is expected to have.

However, the Democratic party had a tough year with the octogenarian politician at the helm.  Democrats may be looking at the slimmest majority in decades, leading 222 seats to Republicans’ 213 seats depending on how 11 outstanding races are eventually called.

Many centrist Democrats blamed Pelosi and her radicalism for the poor showing, while the far left think she hasn’t gone far enough to garner support from Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (D-VT) socialist crowd. Coupled with the fact that Pelosi held up a second coronavirus relief package, which Democrats are suddenly ready to renegotiate after the election, Democrats are in a worse position than they were just two years ago.

With Pelosi sticking around for one more term as Speaker of the House, it may turn out to be a boon for Republicans anyway. If the party keeps moving left and electing elderly politicians to the head of their party, Republicans could be in a much better position to pick up even more seats in the 2022 midterm elections.

  1. She said she would leave after the next congress, what is holding her up, what is wrong with this one. Schumer can’t wait for her to be gone. He thinks she has lost it, and has been screwing things up. he thinks she really needs to go for the sake of the party.

  2. If anyone believes that I will sell you some swamp land in the Mojave. She stated before if a democrat wins 2020 she would retire.

  3. She said she would stand and her limits are up! So this one and only time stand by your word, do not become speaker of the house again.you have hurt your party enough!

  4. GTLC= Group Think Losers Club, People that group think can’t think for themselves, so they follow blindly where ever their blind leader goes.
    So much for the GTLC, when Pelosi goes over the cliff, all of her blind GTLC followers will follow her. The end of her Queendom
    And we also need to stop this thing that keeps us from holding them [email protected] They should not be allowed to [email protected] [email protected] to protect them selves from [email protected]

  5. Demonicrats in congress only get 100 Cents. For years they have been pushing communism in violation of their oath of office, which puts them violation of the constitution, which makes them traitors. Which means execution’s start at dawn.

  6. I don’t know how this works, but I do know that if both president and VP are unable to serve out their terms, Speaker of the house immediately becomes president. Now, I highly suspect Biden will not serve out his term due to 25th amendment that Pelosi is pushing. Would that immediately push her up to the VP position???? Whether that does or does not impact her, I highly suspect that Dem. leadership in the house will disappear in 2022. Therefore, her announcing her departure from speaker would be a way to save face before the ax falls.

  7. She thinks very highly of herself doesn’t she! I can’t think of one single thing she has ever done for this country that is beneficial. Has she really been re-elected legally over the years or has she had some of the same help as Joe Biden…… really hard to know who won and who cheated!

  8. As crooked as Pelosi is and a traitor to this country she should quit now and go off into the sunset, better she should be put in jail. She is as crooked as any criminal on earth

  9. She should leave now I don’t want her controll it’s gone to her head due to no Brains All partys would be better without her.Get Rid of Nancy Pelosi.

  10. Why hasn’t anyone checked her votes, or did they just get a copying machine and send them out that way. I can’t believe that she continues to win in California.

  11. Arizona still has a bridge for sale, and it spans over a…….swamp!
    Believing, in any Pelosi promise …tends to land in this….swamp!

  12. NaN won’t get the required 218 votes! There are too many Dems who blame her for shooting them in the foot! The Republicans will control the floor, and hopefully vote Kevin McCarthy as speaker! That would be the grand coup of all time! Sorry nan, your hands are tied! The mean girl squad won’t vote for you!
