Ohio Democrat Fights to Replace Nancy Pelosi as Leader

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is accustomed to an unchallenged party election, but she’s going to face a bit of opposition this time around. Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan is challenging Pelosi for the leadership position, arguing that the time has come for the Democratic Party to embrace a “new message and a new messenger.”

While Pelosi is widely expected to prevail yet again, Ryan has more than a few Democrats on his side. “We’re making a hell of a run at this thing,” he said on Sunday.

“People are saying, ‘Look, this has been a change election. We want change,’” Ryan said. “And there are a lot of members of Congress who now are understanding that we need to make a change.”

That most House Democrats are going back to Pelosi is pretty extraordinary when you think about it. Nevermind the disaster that was the 2016 election, the Democrats haven’t had the House majority since 2010. When are they going to wake up and realize the country is rejecting the party’s current direction?

According to Ryan, the problem lies in the economy. He is calling for House Democrats to embrace a “robust, economic message” that can win back the Rust Belt voters who went for Donald Trump this year. He said he was optimistic about getting his fellow congressmen to try a new path.

“I think they understand that this is about having a new message and a new messenger and be able to reach those folks,” Ryan said. “They know that if we don’t get the middle of the country, that we’re never going to be back in the majority.”

We’ll see if they really understand that or not in the coming months. Many of the Democrats appear ready to dig in their heels and turn their party into a singular STOP TRUMP organization. Others think it’s time to double down on identity politics and far-left economic policies. If saner heads prevail, we might actually get to see the Democratic Party ease back into reality in the age of Trump.

For a while, anyway.

  1. I’ll believe it when I see it.

  2. One demented Democrat trying to take the place of the Wicked Witch of the West, another demented Democrat? Ho hum. This is news? Would anything change even if he won? No, the leadership and constituency of the Democrat Party is so perverted and leftist, they are in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Moral and ethical people who were Democrats left a long time ago.

  3. Go send this Pelosi BITCH packing!!!

      • I just wish that I could sue Liz Warren and make her stop using my name.

    • Old crab is shit eater

    • i agree with you, Pilosis, is unprintable word. Drain the Swamp. I am sick and tired of the so called -itch, I am hoping they send her some place besides usa.

  5. This is the proof that elected democrats are 1) not representative of the wants or needs of the people, 2) all about their own personal, ideological, partisan-political power, with no real concern for the welfare of the country achieved through valid work. Washington has become little more than a publisher’s clearinghouse for revenue from taxation. They grow government and debt and the people languish in unemployment and lack of lasting jobs. This recent election sent a message that this situation needs to be remedied to the benefit of the American citizen. Enough of career-politicians who have nothing more than their own personal interests at heart. “Draining the swamp” means getting rid of the entrenched bottom feeders who clog the drain. America must never get away from the fundamental concept of the private farm. This was the true “American Dream,” and it can not be replaced. Immigration policies have allowed security problems and encouraged division based on irreconcilable differences in fundamental belief systems, acceptance of the language, heritage and history, laws and Constitution of the United States. Congress has sat idly by and allowed the executive branch to increase minority diversity to the detriment of the majority of American citizens. Our foreign policies have been a disaster for decades, showing no consistency of thought other than attrition. The democrats have championed all types of behaviors, without purpose (other than “freedom of choice”), adding insult to injury by increasing costs to the public for the natural consequences of those behaviors. We have had enough of the stupidity of pandering by democrats to people who make costly, wrong choices. The education system is to inform people of cause and effect logic with respect to thought and behavior. The country can not afford a continuation of the democratic proliferation of stupidity and an insistence on tolerance for it.
    They need to clean out their moronic leadership and do a clean sweep to restore some semblance of credibility to their ranks. They need to be forced to do so, or exercise the right to leave the country.

    • These fools no longer represent the people just an insane idea that they can build a socialist run country that caters to the people that would rather be herded like sheep then to us their own brains.

      • yeah and thank God CLINTON did NOT get elected…..she would have us ALL IN CAMPS…GOD KNOWS WHAT SHE IS AND SAVED US…
        I am getting so sick of the DEMOCRAPS refusing to give TRUMP any respect And VOW TO GIVE HIM ANY HELP…..SO IT IS TIME TO SUCK THE BOTTOM FEEDERS OUT OF THE SWAMP……HE HASNT EVEN BEEN SWORN IN YET AND ALOT OF IDIOTS ARE CLAIMING HE CANT DO ANYTHING…..It’s an insult to we the people, for everyone who gave DUMBAMA A CHANCE, IN SPITE OF KNOWING FOR ALMOST 8 YEARS THAT HE WAS TRYING TO TAKE DOWN ALL AMERICANS….HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN IMPEACHED THE FIRST GO AROUND….HE IS THE REASON WE ARE A COUNTRY DIVIDED AND LETTING PEOPLE RIOT AND BREAK LAWS, AND MADE TAXPAYERS TAKE CARE OF THE LAZY PEOPLE THAT HE ALLOWED TO PUT US IN DEBT BY TRILLIONS. AND WAS A TRAITOR TO THIS COUNTRY AND OPENLY AND BLATANTLY BROUGHT IN ILLEGALS AND TERRORISTS TO HELP MAKE EVERYONE SLAVES….he has admitted he will side with muslims…..it’s our fault for allowing him to do the atrocious acts against us….

        • Janet,, Learn how to write, and use a few periods, comma’s and Know when to use CAPS ! !

          • SUCH TRIVIAL THING TO GET YOU SO RILED AND OPINIONATED…..YOU MUST BE A DEMORAT……….FYI MY KEY IS STUCK…….OKAY……THIS IS THE PROBLEM WITH THIS COUNTRY, IF YOU CAN’T ATTACK NICELY PEOPLE HAVE TO BE SO CRITICAL…HAVE A NICE DAY

          • I’m NOT attacking you! I’m letting you know that the way you write, it is very hard to understand. All CAPS, and no periods to know when you change topics, or take a breath! It ends up being a bunch of mumble/jumble, with no direction.

      • You’re right! They are called “SHEEPLE”!

    • Very well put.

    • Weather it is delta smelt, garbage carp at the bottom of the lake, wolves imported from Canada, illegal aliens, Muslim migrants, or whatever, the welfare of the American people is never on their agenda.

    • They also put the black man in chains and wanted them to stay there. Check the American History and you will see that it was the Republicans that took off the chains and keep them off.

  6. SEND HER SORRY OLD A$$ home to the land of FRUITS an NUTS. an before they sever ties with the USA an become Northern Mexico. She should have be GONE LONG AGO. Get on your broom, an take a hike out of Washington D.C.

  7. I am not even a Democrat, and even I know that Pelosi is WAY beyond having to retire! Hey Nancy, go and spend time with your family.

  8. Considering her track record and the consequences of those action upon the Democrap Socialist party it
    would almost be fun to see her stay in office and the consequences of her ignorance and desire to destroy
    our nation going into the Crapper why not let them continue their downward spiral into oblivion. The racisms,
    bigotry and pure hatred for the United States finally hit a nerve with those in the party and has caused a
    massive implosion of ignorance and revulsion. At the rate she is going she along with Hildabeast and the
    rest of the cackling hoard of bimbos destroy the party once and for all along with Harry Reid and others.

  9. Pelosi is like the old clock on the mantel, it’s old and dusty does’t do anything but tick loudly never really kept the right time and they’ll always be those who hate to throw it away but it’s long, long over due!!!!!

  10. TIME TO REPLACE THE UNHINGED OLD HAG…

  11. “Nasty” Nancy Pelosi is bad for any party to be their representative, her old ways just don’t fit or work

  12. Mr. Ryan better watch his back. Pelosi plays like the Clintons. She will have him offed.

  13. If I were a Democrat and a member of the House, I would do everything that I could possibly do to unseat Nancy Pelosi. I would campaign vigorously for Ryan. But I am neither a Democrat nor a member of Congress so what I would like to do , if I could , doesn’t count. I sincerely hope that the Democrats wise up to this woman because she is completely out of touch to reality. Even though I am a Trump Republican, I wish Mr. Ryan well.

  14. Nancy Pelosi is about as senile as anyone can get. She has done a lot of harm to America while being in Congress. Her ideas come from what people that hate America tells her, such as read the 20 some thousand word document about obama’s health care plan in just a few hours. Don’t debate Obamacare just pass it.
    She shouldn’t be in Congress period. She’s about as anti-American as anyone can be. Can’t think for herself, has to have a democrat to tell her what to think.

  15. It’s bad enough we have to deal with Ryan & McConnell….the easy way out, let’s put these losers back in control. Looks like the Dems want to follow suit with another old “politics as usual” has been.

  16. he will loose. The democrats have never figured out Einsteins simple axium. Inasanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result.
    This will be a boon for republicans further taking over more seats

  17. Winning back the rust belt. Stop forcing the majority to bow to the reign of a minority. The demonic-rats, want your first born for body parts, they want your developing child to have an option for their sexual identities, one they will gladly normalize, they want the end of outward displays of national pride (patriotism) and mostly, lastly and certainly not the least, they want to remove our right to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government. Now, how does that stack up in regards to Pelosi? She is the Trojan horse’s wheel stand, without their one world idealogy and money plans, that turn the rust to dust, make bad…. (rioters) good, fill American school kids minds with a victim mentality, destroy the family unit and replace it with Big Brother politics. The left hates individuality, they invented the “team-player” role modeling. So, they casually have a discussion regarding Nancy Pelosi, that goes nowhere, because like bats, their blind in the daylight or reality of what’s at stake here.

  18. Take the blinders off she should have been gone long ago. You are exactly right your current message is falling apart, get your heads back on doing what’s right for every taxpaying citizen in our country. Our country and citizens first.

  19. Ms. “Stool Sample” needs to be “retired, not replaced”! TERM LIMITS, Now!!!!

  20. The message form this election is, we have had enough of the establishment politicians doing what they want. It’s time you put our country and citizens first or come your next election you will be looking for a new job weather your a repub or dem. nancy should have been gone long ago so get on it.

  21. I agree with Mr Ryan BUT I doubt he will be able to unseat her!!!!

  22. Old “you got to pass it to find out what is in it” needs to be put to pasture.

  23. Pelosi’s message “we have to pass it before we can see what’s in it”, should tell anyone the old bat is way beyond her days.

    Seamsas if therees no need for my post about the old woman that is no longer useful as the speaker of the Liberals party it is time for a person that has not been there so long they have grown febleminded such as pelosi. she get’s situations mixed up so many time any more as if though she doesn’t have a good memory she needs to be replaced and Ryan from what i have read about his thinking he would be a good replacement let this old woman go home to be whith her Grand kids that is if she has a hopme and kids to go to?

  25. Hmmm; does Ryan have even a modicum of leadership ability? Pelosi has NONE!

  26. If I had my way Nancy Pelosi would have to return to California with the Donner party.

  27. He failed and Piglosi prevailed!

  28. Let’s hope they don’t have the inclination to swerve and change. The Republicans are just building up a head on steam under the “change” banner and they might end up as the only party:) I predict every year of the subsequent 4-8 will shine a dimmer and darker light on the Obama throne years. The truth shall prevail.

    GET rid of this turkey and that Damn Feinstein and the other senator bitch from CA

  30. Pelosi is a disgrace as a women, as a representative of the USA government. It is time for her to go, she has outlived her usefulness to the American people who she is supposed to represent and protect. Liz Warren is got a big mouth, but she is all talk and no action. Unfortunately the radical liberals are too self obsessed with their ideals that they cannot accept the truth.

  31. You mean that haggard ole bitch is still alive?? ??

  32. What a disgrace she is, here is a person that passes bills into laws without reading them, and expects those beneath her to live with them, however not her, or fellow members. I believe that she is hoping to get her plane back with the large never depleting liquor Cabinet! Elect Tim Ryan Minority leader!

  33. The bag from Babylon. Nancy Pelosi a has-been lawyer like most Demoratz the former infamous “Lube Rack Girl” circa 1947 from San Francisco. Go to the nut house and ride the broom off to the Left Coast.

  34. This is a good idea. “Anyone” may be better than Pelosi. I don’t like his chances, though. There are still way too many democrat “hangers-oners” that would take a bullet for Pelosi.

  35. FORGET IT! SCUM-BAG PELOSI HAS STUFF ON SO MANY OF THE “CROOKED HOUSE MEMBERS”, SHE’LL BE RE-ELECTED IN A HEARTBEAT! THE SCUM OF SAN FRANCISCO WILL WIN OUT AGAIN, JUST LIKE FEINSTEIN!

  36. How thick-headed are these idiots? They learned NOTHING this past year! They can’t lead, can’t follow, and won’t get the hell out of the way.

  37. Francisco Sperandeo

    Well the election is over and NUMBSKULL NANCY won again and not by a small margin! Goes to show you exactly how many DUMB-a-Crats are still sitting on their big LIBERAL asses getting rich and not giving a damn about the people they represent! This is GREAT NEWS for the GOP with so many Senate seats up for They are blaming the LOSS on HILLARY and not their POLITICAL PLATFORM and AGENDAS! They FAILED and are still failing at seeing what the AMERICAN PEOPLE want, CHANGE!!! Example, they continue to CITE that they won THE POPULAR VOTE!!! OMG! How can we be so blind! What a bunch of self serving BAFFOONS! She won the Popular vote because of CALIFORNIA and Cal alone! CALIFORNIA is the REASON WE HAVE an ELECTORAL COLLEGE to pick our President! So ALL STATES have a voice in our leader! She had 4.3 million more votes than Trump in California but only won the popular vote by 1.3 million votes! I’m not even counting NEW YORK! Both coast states with the HIGHEST CONCENTRATION of IMMIGRANTS! But for sake of arguments I will stick to California. Ok, there is no proof that ILLEGALS VOTED IN CAL! Now will we find out with the LIBERALS CONTROLLING 99.9% of everything there! If we did not have an ELECTORAL COLLEGE the entire country would be at the mercy of California and New York!! As it is just look at the Politicians from Cal, or the nation killing programs that have originated there! They use more OIL than any other state, yet they FORBID and drilling or exploration off their coast! Then the put the toughest air standards on their vehicles! So the rest of the nation they want to do the same. So if we SAVE THE PLANET then buy the MIDDLE east oil that makes it okay! Guess they have a different planet there! Besides they do not give a RATS ASS what California thinks about Global warming! I had to go work and live for 3 months in the LA area of Cal. For such a beautiful and HORRIBLE state at the same time, STRANGE cannot begin to describe them. Don’t get me wrong there are many beautiful and great citizens, but they are way over their quota of WHACKS! (Combination of QUACKS and WACKED OUT people) perfect example is going to the Grocery. Nowhere else in this country did I go shopping and see a huge Super Market that had a 3ft meat dept. And 32ft of TOFU!!! Enough said!

  38. this is all OLD news

  39. America does not like NWO bullshit .. Got it bone heads, in congress

  40. I shouldn’t be concerned with what is going on in the Democratic world, but the mention of Pelosi is another story. She and her ideas are as old as can be, and I think they definitely need new younger ideas. Stop living in the past, vote for Rim Ryan!
