Speaker Pelosi has two slots for herself in the history books. First as the first woman Speaker of the US House of Representatives, and one as the biggest failure as Speaker of the US House of Represetatives:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s own party is turning on her, apparently because of a perception among California Democrats that she has not done enough to shake up the status quo in Washington, D.C., according to a Field Poll released Friday.
Congress overall is doing even worse with California voters, with an approval rating sagging to 30 percent or below for only the seventh time in the past 15 years, the poll of 1,201 registered voters found. Both Pelosi, the San Francisco Democrat who became speaker this year, and Congress as a whole have fallen short of voter expectations since taking over both houses, poll director Mark DiCamillo said.
The failures of the Dem led Congress are dragging down support for all the Democrat office holders in CA. Check out the other numbers on Boxer and Feinstein in the article – too fun. Seems they are only good at griping, not producing results.
And the in-fighting in the Democrat party is getting quite intense as the far left keeps pulling away from what is left of the moderate middle in the Democrat Party. Pelosi is overseeing a Mad House and performing worse than the GOP. I am not sure voters are going to be rewarding them for failure in 2008. The GOP just was not this bad.
