Report: Nancy Pelosi Will Run Again Despite Promising to Step Aside

New reports indicate that Nancy Pelosi will launch another Congressional campaign despite previously promising to step down as the top House Democrat after 2022.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Pelosi has held her party’s top role in the House as both speaker and minority leader for nearly two decades. During leadership elections in 2018, Pelosi agreed to a term-limit plan that would mean she would not seek the speaker’s gavel after the 2022 elections. Last year, she affirmed her commitment to the plan.

But the CNN report published on Sunday, citing “sources familiar with Pelosi’s thinking,” said that Pelosi is keeping open the possibility of breaking that pledge and seeking to remain the leader of House Democrats after 2022.

Running for another term and keeping open the possibility of seeking a leadership position again helps Pelosi keep control over her caucus and avoid being seen as a “lame-duck speaker,” a term that Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has used to describe her.

It may also quiet speculation about who can replace her as the Democratic leader in the House, avoiding monthslong angling for the position among top contenders that distracts from campaigning against Republicans in the midterm elections.

The report came after an October interview that left many speculating that Pelosi was planning her exit when she refused to answer if she planned to run for another term.

Typical female, say one thing, do another. According to Psychology Today Magazine had an article a few years back and it showed women lie more than men. Therefore, it is a proven fact.

Time to put her in her rocingr chair. She is already exhibiting signs of early dementia, as is her anger and UnAmerican comments. Some 80 year olds are extremely sharp, and others are not. Even our should be 2020 President states he will consider fo 2024, but will not make a decision according to health and needs of America.

Queen Pelosi thinks it’s good to be the Queen. She will never step down on her own. And if the Dems try to toss her out, she will use blackmail to keep her power.

She will use that on Kevin McCarthy as well. When he is speaker he will be like Drunkard Bonehead and Rat Ryan, working with her like she was still in charge. So, a new speaker must come forward that is a conservative and that is not one of the good old go along get along rino variety like McCarthy is,

I believe Pelosi has just signed her own death warrant. Wouldn’t surprise me if someone did her in. Good! I hope they do!

In the final analysis, God still orders the lives of mankind. Those who are greedy, and power hungry, will in the end find, that it is He, who holds all the power. Sometimes, when He has allowed you to have an amount of power, it is a test. If you abuse the power, you fail the test, And now you have put a noose around your own neck. As further testing, He gives you enough rope to hang yourself. He does this to give you enough time to realize you are doing wrong, and so, feel remorse. After remorse, should come repentance. That means a turning away from your wrongdoing, and if need be making amends. If you do all this, He will forgive. If you fail to accept the fact that you have done any wrong, or do not care about any suffering you may have caused, if he sees no remorse, no repentance, know this. It is He who holds the other end of the rope that forms the noose you have placed around your now, most unfortunate neck. Wake up, Nancy, and all of the rest of you. That rope is getting shorter, and shorter. And Fauci should be ducking, and cringing, along with Biden. And, about that election, we all know who is really telling the big lie. And so does He. He watched every move very closely.

You are correct. Unfortunately, the liar that she is, will run because she is into power and the benefits. She’s older than I am, I’m 77. doesn’t she have a life? Congress IS her life.

As long as her dimwit constituency keeps electing her, the only way she’ll be leaving the Halls of Congress is if she dies in office. Imagine the celebration on that day!

It could make Jan 6, just a tea party. Either that or earth tremors across the nation. You said the constituency is dimwitted. Kamala Harris said Americans are stupid. I hope she’s not right in Nov, 2022.

That would be great, but just kick them out and take away their benefits and make them work like the rest of us. If they only served less than 6 years, no pension. At the Cambell Soup sales division, you got vested after 9 years and got a pension based on the last salary earned. you could add to it to make it larger. Know what I got after 9 years? 129.92 monthly. That’s what should be done with these, as ex-mayor La Guardia calls political bums. Putting them in jail would only make taxpayers pay for their food and clothes.

She’s been planning this, stepping down was all bullshit. She wants to be president and with biden’s brain going mush and harris is an easy impeach, she’ll try to take over as president.

Nancy and her crew of ancient cabinet members look like the coffee line up at a senior center.

Maybe she isn’t aware of it yet but she is losing control. She will soon be blathering like Biden. Most who fail don’t realize it till something traumatic happens, like a fall, or they get lost in a familiar place. The hand dances when she’s speaking, uncontrolled gestures with her right arm are becoming more vigorous and more obvious.As for Joe, he’s an embarrassment. Also shuffling more.

Let the impeachment trials of Old Queenie Nanc begin. And if they don’t we will know she has BS on Kevin McCarthy. He is a rino, only the criminals he has dealt with know what he can be blackmailed with. If she stays after the house lose to the GOP and no trials are started, we will know Kevin! And your days as Speaker will be short. Actions must follow words and there is too much evidence of Old Nanc abusing her position and the lying and fabricating to deny her quilt.
