No shock: For Democrats, 2012 is about returning to power – not representing the people.
Color me not shocked.
In a short piece published in The Hill’s Blog briefing room, DCCC chair Steve Israel noted that their goal for 2012 is to win enough seats to return Nancy Pelosi to the Speaker of the House position.
Notably absent in the piece was any reference or desire for Democrat Represenatives to serve their constituents or act on the best interest of this nation.
Perhaps we missed something when Pelosi stayed on as now minority leader and soaked up as much face time as possible during yesterday’s event.
Maybe there is something more important we are missing about how Democrats and their leadership view citizens of this great nation.
In either event, this comment should not go unnoticed and serve as a warning for us all.
