Rep. Pomeroy (D-ND) is a coward. And truly, I cannot stand cowards.
They are contemptible, weak and usually whine a lot.
But most of all, when you really need them — they fold like a card table. You know, look at their feet a lot and wring their hands.
And the coward Pomeroy did not stand to, he folded.
He bears substantial responsibility for the coming loss of his own seat, and the loss of the U.S. House by the Dems.
For those who do not know the story, Rep. Pomeroy was on the verge of killing ObamaCare.
He stood up in the Democratic caucus and exhorted his colleagues to stop the ObamaCare insanity.
His colleagues listened. The herd was restless. They were ready to bolt.
But then, the very next day, at a special caucus meeting, Representative Pomeroy stood before his fellow colleagues and committed the greatest act of cowardliness I have ever known in Washington, D.C.
He said he was wrong and would vote for ObamaCare.
He later whined a whole lot when the ObamaCare debate kept stretching on and on — saying he was going to lose his seat if it kept up.
Too bad for Pomeroy.
He is now running an ad in North Dakota saying he is not Nancy Pelosi.
He may not be Nancy Pelosi, but she has his manhood in a jar on her desk.
As Pomeroy is finding out, the reason moderate Democrats get elected is so that they will stop the hard left wingers in their own Party.
But what good is a moderate who knows better, but is too much of a coward to be effective?
Why not just get a Republican?
