Defeated Democrats Draft Letter to Pelosi Asking Her to Step Aside As Democrat House Leader

A drafted letter is now circulating Capitol Hill in which House Democrats who have been voted out of office are asking Nancy Pelosi to step aside as the leader of the House Democrats. These defeated members are hoping that if Nancy Pelosi steps aside, they will have a better chance of getting reelected in 2012.
Typical Democrats, not taking responsibility for their own actions and pinning the blame on someone else! It looks like they are so desperate for a scapegoat that they have turned on one of their own! Yes, the American people wanted to dethrone Nancy Pelosi, but they also wanted to vote out politicians who did not listen to the will of the people, which includes the defeated Democrats!
Letter from Defeated Members:
Many of us want the chance to run again and reclaim the seats that we lost on Tuesday. With you as the leader of House Democrats, the hangover of 2010 stands no chance of subsiding. Many of us have run our last race but remain committed to our party; we want to help recruit successful candidates to run in our stead. Unfortunately, we fear that Republicans will further demonize you, and in so doing they will scare potential candidates out. The prospect of having to run against their own party leadership in addition to their Republican opponent is simply too daunting.
This is a difficult letter to write, because we admire your commitment, your drive, and your conviction. You have been an historic figure in our great nation, and for that we are all proud, as should you be. Nonetheless, we each experienced how Republican demonization of you and your leadership contributed to our defeat.
It is impossible not to judge the results of November 2nd as anything but a profound loss. We want to recover. Recovery of our majority in the House necessitates new leadership at the top of our party. We believe that you can and will play an extraordinary role in our party, and it is extremely unfortunate that Republicans have taken away your ability to lead as effectively as you are able. Nonetheless, one mark of a strong leader is the ability to discern when it is time to pass the baton. As defeated members, whose party needs to rebuild, we are counting on you to show the strength of your leadership in this dark hour. We ask that you step aside as leader of our party in the House.
