Tea Party Express Endorses Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Her Very, Very, Very Seasoned Leadership Team
Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is endorsing House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Steny Hoyer, and Rep. James Clyburn in their bids to retain their leadership roles within the House’s Democratic caucus.
Tea Party Express Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, “To be a successful party, its leadership must have their fingers on the pulse of the party. There’s no team in politics that has had their fingers on the pulse longer than Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (76 years old), Congressman Steny Hoyer (77 years old), and Congressman James Clyburn (76 years old). Their unprecedented tenure alone qualifies them for another term.
“But from our perspective, there’s also no team in Washington that has been better for Tea Party conservatism than the Pelosi Trio. When President Obama was first elected, the Pelosi trio was delivered a 257-seat majority. However, under Pelosi’s leadership and liberal retro policies, conservatives have been able to see an historic, 67-seat flip! We don’t want to ruin a good thing.
“And today, Ohio whippersnapper, Congressman Tim Ryan (who is only a mere 43 years old, and not to be confused with the “good Ryan,” Speaker Paul Ryan, who is a ripe 46 years old) announced his intentions to challenge his party’s elders’ fragile grasp on power. Democrats must oppose this naïve, self-serving mutiny.
“Conservative electoral success has depended on the stubborn leadership of the Pelosi trio. Last year, Congressman Tim Ryan let political expediency flip his views on abortion from pro-life to pro-choice. The last thing we need is some unprincipled, political opportunist to take charge of a party that rightfully values their long-toothed liberal policies. Albeit, he adopted the wrongheaded position of his elders, we can see now that it was just to position himself to inherit the party’s mantle,” Budowich concluded.
