Nancy Pelosi creates/saves a job!

Nancy Pelosi see­ing the fight between Jim Clyburn and Steny Hoyer for Minor­ity Whip has demon­strated the abil­ity she showed all dur­ing her time as speaker to make the tough deci­sions to solve prob­lems.

In a state­ment released late Fri­day night, Pelosi sig­naled an end to the ongo­ing bat­tle between Clyburn and Demo­c­ra­tic Leader Steny Hoyer (Md.) to be the next House Minor­ity Whip — the second-​ranking lead­er­ship posi­tion in the minority.

Should I receive the honor of serv­ing as House Demo­c­ra­tic Leader, I will nom­i­nate Con­gress­man Jim Clyburn of South Car­olina to the num­ber three lead­er­ship posi­tion,” Pelosi said in a state­ment sent to reporters at 11:01pm.

Num­ber 3 posi­tion? She is not bump­ing John Lar­son as cau­cus chair­man so what exactly is this #3 posi­tion that I’ve never heard of. What does it do? I’m sure Politico can tell us

Clyburn’s title and respon­si­bil­i­ties were not spec­i­fied in the announce­ment from Pelosi’s office, and Demo­c­ra­tic lead­er­ship aides scram­bled to explain the deal to reporters.

So let me get this straight. The Demo­c­ra­tic Party faced with mak­ing an actual deci­sion between two pre­sum­ably qual­i­fied can­di­dates for

Who said that democ­rats didn’t know how to cre­ate or save jobs?

Hmmm let’s think about this, a totally unneeded job sud­denly cre­ated for a mem­ber of a racial minor­ity to avoid a con­flict in an orga­ni­za­tion. What is the word that peo­ple have for a per­son who gets such a job for the sake of appear­ances. Oh I know, TOKEN.

I guess self-​respect doesn’t come into play when power is involved.

Update: Sep­a­rate but Equal? OUCH!

Nancy Pelosi seeing the fight between Jim Clyburn and Steny Hoyer for Minority Whip has demonstrated the ability she showed all during her time as speaker to make the tough decisions to solve problems.

In a statement released late Friday night, Pelosi signaled an end to the ongoing battle between Clyburn and Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer (Md.) to be the next House Minority Whip — the second-ranking leadership position in the minority.

“Should I receive the honor of serving as House Democratic Leader, I will nominate Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina to the number three leadership position,” Pelosi said in a statement sent to reporters at 11:01pm.

Number 3 position? She is not bumping John Larson as caucus chairman so what exactly is this #3 position that I’ve never heard of. What does it do? I’m sure Politico can tell us

Clyburn’s title and responsibilities were not specified in the announcement from Pelosi’s office, and Democratic leadership aides scrambled to explain the deal to reporters.

So let me get this straight. The Democratic Party faced with making an actual decision between two presumably qualified candidates for

the job that Jim Clyburn (who happens to be black) currently holds have agreed to put Steny Hoyer (who happens to be white) in Mr. Clyburn’s job and to invent a job, presumably with staff and offices paid via government funds, with no title and no specific duties for Jim Clyburn.

Who said that democrats didn’t know how to create or save jobs?

Hmmm let’s think about this, a totally unneeded job suddenly created for a member of a racial minority to avoid a conflict in an organization. What is the word that people have for a person who gets such a job for the sake of appearances. Oh I know, TOKEN.

I guess self-respect doesn’t come into play when power is involved.

Update: Separate but Equal? OUCH!
