Today in Geriatric Dysfunction
I’m thinking that the geriatric (and corrupt) leadership of the Congressional Democrats really need to go, but they continue to cling to power.
It serves no one but themselves.
We need some new blood among the leadership, because as January 6, 2006 shows, the alternative is blood on the streets:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday that she is running for reelection, citing the “crucial” need to defend American democracy through legislation on voting rights and other issues.
Pelosi, 81, has served in Congress since 1987.
Pelosi has led House Democrats for 19 years through the presidencies of George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Donald Trump and now President Biden. She was instrumental in ensuring the passage of the Affordable Care Act during Obama’s tenure; Democrats’ focus on preserving the law helped the party reclaim the House majority in 2018.
In 2018, Pelosi said this term would be her last as speaker, but she made no mention of her plans in the announcement Tuesday.
Since the losing the House in 2022 is almost a certainty, that point is largely moot, but my guess is that she tries to remain as minority leader, to the detriment of the party and the nation.
