My gripe hasn't so much been with Pelosi, but with the DNC. Pelosi knows how to 'herd the cats', so to speak. I just think that ultimately, it's time for the DNC to have some changes and for the old to be replaced by the young, this will happen soon, in the next three or four years or so.


My Gripe with Pelosi has to do with her - "Herding the Cats" - to maintain her own Professional Political Career & the lengthy careers of other Career Politicians who have nothing to show for their Decades in Congress including Name Recognition - except for their Sycophancy & obsequious behavior towards the Queen

 

The Voters in New York took care of Pelosi's #3 last election cycle - hopefully the Voters in Maryland & South Carolina will rid us of Hoyer and Clyburn & California will stick a fork in Pelosi

 

Herding Cats is a fine analogy but it's not her job - her Job is to get the Votes to pass the Legislation that makes the lives of Americans Better - she needs Cats & Dogs to do that & having her there has made it abundantly clear - Republicans will Vote against her regardless of the Policy

 

National Healthcare for All - Infrastructure - Social Security - Medicare - Immigration - Veterans Benefits - Minimum Wage -

 

Pelosi Clyburn Hoyer - find their names on any bills they sponsored for any of the above that have passed into Legislation in the last 20 years - Obamacare thats it - Decades of Professional Political Careers and all the Power & Recognition that goes along with it

 

One Accomplishment - Obamacare - & that was surely Offset by their Combined Strategy to First Nominate then Support Clinton that gave us Trump

 

Anyone who thinks the Head of the DNC or even it's entire infrastructure has more Power then the Democratic Caucus in the Congress or even Pelosi herself in not thinking clearly

 

Pelosi = Trump...........................Reid = McConnell = Trump - let us not forget Harry Reid was Senate Majority Leader From January 2007 until 2015.......................the Democratic Party that lost to Trump was RUN by Pelosi - Reid - Obama & Clinton

 

Reid - Obama - Clinton are gone but the 30 year old 20th Century thinking of the Democratic Party Leadership is still intact as long as Pelosi Rules...........................and it will continue to be a loser

 

Now the House will be consumed by Trump Investigations and we know this 78 year old is not going to be able to concentrate on more than one thing at a time - SHES ALREADY PROVED THAT - so again - the needs of the American People will take a back seat to Partisan One-upmanship - AGAIN

Nancy Pelosi terrifies the GOPerLords because she has the ability to peel off enough Republicans to get bipartisan support for important things Congress needs to do for We the People.

 

This interfers with the GOPerLords scheme to redistribute all income and wealth from the middle to the very top of the 1%, bankrupt Social Security and Medicare and return PPACA to the status quo ante when insurance companies did NOT cover pre-existing conditions, could drop you if you got sick and put life-time limits on what they'd pay for while raising rates at 3 times inflation because they were diverting most of the premium revenue into executive bonuses.

 

To get that agenda done, they've got Yertle McConnell dedicated to shredding the social safety net to preserve tax scams for the richest, but even with their toad in the White House, they need to House to finish their work of destroyingthe middle class and reducing American workers to serfdom by telling them its freedom.

 

Pelosi will keep that from happening, and starting 2021, will reverse the tidal wave of wealth redistribution begun in 1985 so the people who create it will once again get to share in it.

Of course!  Those with open minds consider many viewpoints before taking a position.  Not surprised to see who doesn't.....

My only worry with Pelosi is sometimes she doesn't seem to have a good grip on reality. True, she is very experienced, but she is just "off the wall" with some of her statements.

And the guy you support in the White House has a good grip on reality???  Just saying.....

Ahhh, no.  She's been a gift to Republicans.  It's the Liberals who are afraid of her.  She really does need to retire and I think the Liberals know that, too.
