It's really easy to win votes when there's no one there to oppose you.
House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was nominated once again by her Democrat colleagues on Wednesday to be their "fearless leader and nominee for the Speaker of the House for the 117th Congress."
Congratulations to @SpeakerPelosi, once again elected by House Democrats to be our fearless leader and nominee for Speaker of the House for the 117th Congress! #DownWithNDP #ForThePeople— House Democrats (@HouseDemocrats) November 18, 2020
For those playing the home game, "#DownWithNDP" is another lame attempt by the left to incorporate hip-hop into making them sound clever. "NDP" stands for Nancy D'Alesandro Pelosi.
POLITICO reported that Pelosi's office "provided" a copy of her post-nomination remarks.
"The theme I think of what we do next has to be about justice. It has to be about justice in our economy. It has to be about justice in our justice system, passing the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act," Pelosi said. “Justice in our environment, environmental justice. Justice in our health care."
I'm not sure. I think Pelosi wants some kind of justice. I could be wrong.
The announcement comes along with other appointments to leadership positions within the House. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) will serve a second term as Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) was "elected by House Democrats" as Majority Leader, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) was re-elected as House Majority Whip and Rep. Katherine Clark was "newly-elected" as Assistant Speaker.
