Democratic Rep.: We Can't 'Push Aside a Great Leader Like Nancy Pelosi'

25 Juin, 2017, 14:12 | Author: Cyril Hebras

Those sentiments also were reflected by Ryan and Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Massachusetts), while Pelosi said Thursday at a press conference that she was "worth the trouble" and loved "the fray".

Rank-and-file Democrats are, reasonably, disappointed with a loss in what seemed to be a winnable special election in Georgia. Twice. In Georgia and SC.

Ask House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi if she'll survive in her post as the top Democrat in the House of Representatives despite renewed criticism this week, and the San Francisco representative won't blink.

On that point, Ryan agreed that the Democrats need to focus less on President Donald Trump and more on economic issues. "Democrats haven't won there in 37 years", he said of the former speaker of the House. "This is about being able to take the Democratic party in a direction that is actually going to help us win seats and get back into the majority". "Our brand is worse than Trump", Ryan said, adding, in an evident flash of enlightenment: "We can't just run against Trump". "One of the disappointing things from the last couple days is that that approach has a little bit of punch to it, it still moves voters". Remember when the Democrats proclaimed that Republicans would pay heavy prices in special elections for going after Obamacare?

It didn't work. Democrat strategists are wondering if they might have had better success with a sharper attack on Trump and a more liberal candidate, creating sharper lines of distinction. "I certainly don't feel it".

"We've let people say that Nancy Pelosi is some frightful person for so long without defending her that people started to believe it". Debbie Dingell of MI.

"But I am honored by the support", she said.

Pelosi became defensive, in the middle of a long rambling explanation about the state of the Democrat Party (video at end). "But we're still losing".

BENNETT: Democrats see 70 House seats that could be easier to flip than that Georgia district. The GOP's candidate, Karen Handel, was considered weak and an easy target for the heavily financed Democrats, whose ample war chest poured in from donors on the left coast, California, and other liberal bastions.

Indeed the best news Democrats got Tuesday night was a different special House race, in SC, ended up closer than the Georgia contest even though it had drawn little national attention.
