Shuler: Blue Dogs not hearing from Pelosi

Rep. Heath Shuler of Waynesville said this morning that there is “no communication” between the Blue Dog Democrats and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Appearing on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” program, Shuler said “there's been really no communications whatsoever” between his group and the California Democrat, Politico reports.

“We still have not had the connection between the Blue Dog members and the leadership,” said Shuler, who challenged Pelosi, in a symbolic vote.

He said Pelosi didn't go to the Blue Dogs meetings. He said Pelosi would not be welcome in the districts of other centrist Democrats but he said other House leaders such as Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryaldn and Assistant Leader James Clyburn of South Carolina would.

RE: REP SHULER & PELOSI

In my opinion she should snub mr shuler for he isn't a true democrat in the first place as that he is so closely aligned with the republican party that he had may as well switch his registration to become a repbulican . as that he is at heart anyway an tends to vote with an suport their causes for the coporate instrest an the sopecial instrest just as the republicans do for he has no caring about the actual people of his district  or the states democratice constitutes across this state to see too it that that have fair respresention in the u.s house of representives thank you

Schuer: Home County

Schuler is a current resident of Haywood County. He moved to NC from Tennessee. Until Schuler can follow and be a Pelosi lap dog; he's doomed.

Climber

Shuler is a much of a political climber as Pelosi.  Anything for a headline.  Both cut from the same cloth, i.e. "what's in it for me."

MESSNBC? why bother?

Is Shuler from Bryson City, Waynesville or Ashevillle?
