Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many
Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many
25 June, 2017, 02:47
Trump was referring to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is facing questions about her leadership after Democrats lost the Georgia special House election.
"Say "no" to Pelosi's "yes" man", blared one ad from the Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC.
"It's always terrific to be able to leave that Washington swamp and spend time with the truly hard working people we call American Patriots, truly incredible people", President Donald Trumptold a crowd attending his latest still-campaigning rally, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, aka "home of the greatest wrestlers in the world". Pelosi told fellow House Democrats in a letter Wednesday, "The House was in play before the Georgia race".
"I think healthcare's gonna happen", he said, despite the attempts of "obstructionist" Democrats. "We know how to run against a Nancy Pelosi-run party".
It may not all be Nancy Pelosi's fault. Sound off in today's WND poll! The subtext wasn't a subtext at all because Pelosi wanted to send a direct message to her detractors: any junior member of the House Democratic Caucus who wants to go on TV and keep arguing for her removal as leader is welcome to do so. 'I personally think that time is now'. "Let's take the time to find people who fit their districts, have compelling stories, and work hard to earn support from voters". "That's no way to build a national party".
Georgia's 6th District was significant because it's a traditionally Republican district whose college-educated voters (59 percent of adults, sixth-highest in the country) were repelled by Donald Trump. Trump's tweet not only implies that Pelosi hurts the Democratic Party, but it also means Trump actually agrees with some Democratic leaders, including Rep. Tim Ryan.
"I feel very confident in the support that I have in my caucus", she said. "Manytimes I had not really wanted to run again, and (Democrats) called on me to do so".
"Certainly, one thing I learned as a Marine is my job description was very simple: You're responsible for everything your platoon does or fails to do", Moulton said.

Those messages weren't aimed at Georgia voters; they were aimed at funders, like the supposed pragmatists at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee who stiffed James Thompson in Kansas and spent a paltry $340,000 on Rob Quist's race in Montana, but lavished millions on Ossoff's equally doomed campaign.
She retains a devoted core of fiercely loyal supporters.
Meanwhile, the Hill reported activist Michael Moore expressed the anger of many on the left after Democrats spending tens of millions of dollars on the Georgia race, viewing it as a referendum on Trump. And running simply on an anti-Trump message - like Clinton tried and failed a year ago - wouldn't work for Democrats in 2018 either, no matter how mired in scandal and controversy over Russian Federation the White House may be. But Pelosi maintained that familiar GOP strategy only proves she is an asset.
Rice noted her leadership wasn't winning elections, even though she has proven to be a great fundraiser. "A lot of it was beyond our control". She outright told him during a debate that while he "may live five minutes outside the district, you're values are 3,000 miles away in San Francisco".

At a campaign-style rally in Iowa on Wednesday evening, President Trump praised recent GOP special election victories and his administration's accomplishments to date, while criticizing the media and Democrats.
She recently had a shining moment on the House floor, however, in the hours after the June 14 shooting of Republican lawmakers.
Pelosi didn't give names when she referred to those who want her to step aside, but she called out those chose to go on television to criticize her, saying "have your fun". "(Tom) Daschle was a target, Tip O'Neill was a target", Pelosi said.
She vowed to "heed the words of President Kennedy in the closing of his inaugural address, when he said ..."
