How do people like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi get re-elected?

This just boggles my mind. It's unsettling to know there are large numbers of people that identify with these two. Is there something in the water over there?

Try as I might to see some fundamental good in their political philosophy, I keep coming up empty. Sometimes, I just think they are pure evil.

I think it's the whole congress is terrible but not our rep. There are a lot of people out there who either vote strictly by party or who just vote for names they recognize.

Pelosi - her district loves her
Reid - was beat dead to rights by a moderate republican and the tea party ran a nincompoop that beat said moderate in the primary and of course lost to reid in the general.

Simple the congress is set up like a mafia organization, the longer you are there the more money you can bring home because you have seniority.

This shyt should be criminal.

Her district is in San Francisco. They are very liberal...They like Pelosi's stances on the issues.

Its one reason why she would be unable to run for Senate.

People segregate themselves by living areas. IE, would you like to live in downtown Oakland, Cal?

So, they vote for people that reflect their values.
I live in Bossier. It's a very white, very working class district. Our Rep is one of the most conservative members of Congress.

You really just cant understand that not everyone shares your political beliefs?

This would be like me starting a thread asking how do far right wing wackos like Ron Johnson and Mitch McConnell keep getting re-elected?

The OP's thought process really blows my mind. I mean i guess I grew up in south Louisiana so i was forced to be around and interact with a lot of people who have differing beliefs than I do. I feel like some of you just live in the conservative echo chamber though and honestly cannot conceive that your beliefs are not the only ones out there and just because you think something that doesn't necessarily make it the "right" thing.

Well that's the establishment spin on it anyway. The real answer is Harry Reid's seat was bought and paid for by the Unions.

Same goes to you, homo.

Liberals are very tolerant towards things they agree with.

You see that's sort of the point. To me he is a far far right winger, but I also understand that my view is not the only one out there and have enough respect for others that I don't necessarily look at my beliefs as "right" and opposing beliefs as "wrong".
