Please don't resign, Nancy! ~ By Joseph Farah

Posted: May 19, 2009 © 2009 By Joseph Farah I disagree with those calling for Nancy Pelosi to resign as speaker of the House. I want her to stay right where she is – the poster girl for Democratic Party dishonesty, duplicity, hypocrisy, vacillation, finger-pointing and the inability to distinguish right from wrong. Really. Why would anyone who wants to see the Congress turned upside-down in 2010 want Nancy Pelosi to step down? It doesn't make sense. I want her to stay where she is until the next election. I want Harry Reid to stay where he is in the Senate. I want Barney Frank to get as much face time as possible and continue in his leadership role for the majority. Don't dump Nancy, please! Just think of the opportunities she presents for challengers in 2010. I can envision her very name working its way into the permanent political lexicon of the nation. In the future, when someone tries to say one thing and do another or backpedal from previous policies or have his cake and eat it too, we can just respond simply: "Don't you Pelosi your way through this one …" Her name may well find its way into dictionaries in the future: "Pelosi – verb – to argue a point while ignoring relevant facts and defying logic and reason." Headed into the 2010 elections, I love the idea of having a Democratic House speaker who is a known fraud – someone who represents herself as being opposed to waterboarding terrorists captured on the battlefield, but who never lifted a finger to stop it despite being in her position of power for three years. She may have trouble holding her own congressional seat with a record like that. I wouldn't be surprised if Cindy Sheehan takes her out in a primary. At the end of the day, Americans appreciate politicians who mean what they say and say what they mean. They appreciate politicians who stand on principles and don't waffle. They appreciate politicians who don't lie as a way of life. [Continue reading]
