Dems fear bi-partisianship

House Democrats fear that Pres. Obama may try to work with the Republicans. They want incoming Minority Leader Pelosi to stop that. The AP reports:
Behind Democrats' decision to keep Pelosi as their leader after historic losses lies intense concern among liberals who dominate the party's ranks on Capitol Hill: They fear Obama will go too far in accommodating the GOP in the new era of divided government, and they see Pelosi as a counterweight.
House Dems give Pelosi credit for the Obamacare disaster:
When Democrats panicked after losing their Senate supermajority last winter, Pelosi rebuffed feelers by then-White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and others to settle for a smaller health care bill. She derided the approach as "kiddie care" and pushed forward with the sweeping overhaul she painstakingly steered through the House by a razor-thin margin.
Maybe it should have been called PelosiCare.

Pelosi: Pass Obamacare so artists can quit their day jobs!
Pelosi: let them eat cake!
Eco-hypocrite of the day
