Allen Boyd tells Pelosi: You're the face of our defeat

From FoxNews: "Disgruntled Democrats finally had a chance to confront Speaker Nancy Pelosi face
to face for the first time during a raucous closed-door caucus meeting Tuesday, as defeated Rep. Allen Boyd called her 'the face of our defeat.

" 'We need new leadership," Boyd, a Florida Democrat, told his colleagues, according to sources in the room.

"His comments were made shortly after Pelosi told Democrats she was targeted in races around the country because she is an effective leader for them. The Democratic gathering was the first gathering of the caucus since the party lost control of the House."

The vote on who leads the Democrats happens today.

NO... Allen Boyd, you and the other wimps in the Dem party are to blame. The President and the Dem Congress were elected by historic voter turnout in 2006 and 2008!!! The President won with a clear mandate! YOU and the other bluedog's caved into the pressure of the whackjob teapartier's that were urged on by the lying hate mongers on Fox news and by Rush Limbaugh and others like him. Please get a clue Allen (you don't get to retain the title of Congressman.) You made the Health Care Reform Act a joke! It should have been passed in the original form. And YOU really screwed up when you did not vote for the Disclosure Act. That is why many progressives did not vote in the 2010 general election... to send YOU and your kind packing! Speaker Pelosi, was the most successful House Speaker in more than 40 years! The problem was YOU, not backing the policy that was supported by the majority of "Thinking Americans". Glad you're gone... from one of your constituents in Tallahassee!

No anger here - we Tea Partiers remain hopeful that Ms. Pelosi will continue to lead the Democrats in the House!
