Nancy Pelosi knows the real polls. And she’s warning the Democrats.
A while back Pelosi hinted that she wanted more cooperation with the president. TBS documented Pelosi’s comments at the time:
Who was the culprit who wants Democrats to stop criticizing the president? To the surprise of many Leftists, none other than House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made this surprising comment.
“(The voters) don’t want to hear us criticizing the president,” Pelosi said. “This was a choice; they made a decision.”
“And to criticize the president personally is to disrespect their judgment,” Pelosi said. “So I say to my members, ‘This is about what we’re going to do.’”Pelosi made her statement while speaking to the editorial board and reporters at the Denver Post . Pelosi discussed the Democrats’ agenda, and focused on the economy.
And it’s happened again.
As Politico wrote:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi offered a forced smile recently when asked on MSNBC about a Tom Steyer-sponsored ad that calls for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
“That’s a great ad,” Pelosi said twice, before rushing to plug the Democrats’ Better Deal economic agenda as the TV hit wrapped up.
Pelosi played it off, but privately she was peeved. She told lawmakers at a Democratic leadership meeting soon after that she had reached out to the Democratic megadonor to tell him that his $10 million ad campaign is a distraction. (A source close to Steyer said he hasn’t spoken with Pelosi since the ad launched.)
Pelosi is eager to show her party can govern — in contrast to the chaos surrounding Trump — and she believes that a reputation as the “no drama” Democrats is key to taking back the House in 2018 and whisking her backing into the speaker’s chair.
While not an official slogan, Pelosi has discussed the strategy broadly in recent leadership and caucus meetings, urging members to avoid talk of impeachment and resist taking Trump’s bait on whatever topic is dominating his Twitter feed that day.
Has Pelosi had a change of heart? Of course not.
She’s already begun bashing President Trump’s tax plan. But then again, that’s what she’s suppose to do. The fact is, Pelosi must pretend to hate the president’s plan as part of the negotiation.
Politico wrote of Pelosi’s resurgence based on the election of President Trump:
Nancy Pelosi was upset, but holding it in. Donald Trump was in a good mood, and letting it out.
“I think we’ll get things done,” Trump told her.
It was November 9, the afternoon after the election. The House minority leader had called Trump Tower to congratulate the president-elect.
“I know what you do,” Trump told her. “You’re somebody that gets things done, better than anybody.”
“Don’t forget, I was a supporter of yours, a good one,” Trump said toward the end of the conversation, recalling his history as a reliable Democratic donor, according to a transcript provided by a person familiar with the call. “I think you’re terrific. That was in my developer life, my business life.”
Ten months later, Trump’s was a White House life, and after growing frustrated with his own party, he was back to working with Democrats, saying Pelosi was terrific. It must be weird, I said to Pelosi on the phone—for all she’s seen in her career, having grown up in politics and served 30 years in the House of Representatives— now to be dealing with Trump as president.
The line was quiet for 10 seconds. She held out for the comic timing.
“Am I supposed to comment on that?” she said.
“Remember one thing: He is the president of the United States,” she said, when I pressed her. “That may be weird, but once you get past that … ”
Remember what a shock to the system the election of Donald Trump was. Happily, I do.
On November 9, 2016 Donald Trump replaced the smug looks on the faces of the Left with tears. And things only got worse for the Democrats from there.
With the latest revelations regarding the Democrats colluding with the Clinton campaign, as well as the Russian investigation turning on them, the Democrats aren’t exactly in the best negotiating position.
The terror attack in New York doesn’t help with the Democrats’ credibility either. Yet again Americans see the outcome of Democrats’ policies. And all of this plays in favor of the president short-term and long-term.
Eventually, Obamacare disappears. The president will get his tax cuts. He will also get the Democrats to capitulate on the war on terror. Because Donald Trump doesn’t lose. He bides his time, and knows when to strike.
As for Pelosi, she will continue to play Tina Toughass publicly. However, behind the scenes, Pelosi will continue to work with the president.
One thing is for sure. Pelosi has come a long way from earlier this year when the Democrats chanted, “F–k Trump!” at their convention.
During his speech, outgoing state party chairman John Burton led the crowd in a ‘F**k’ Trump chant, complete with hand gestures.
So, the entire crowd including Democrat “leadership” shot our president the bird with both hands while chanting “F—k Trump! F—k Trump!” over and over again.
The AP confirmed the inglorious display of tantrum-throwing Leftists with no discernible debate skills.
“In a sign of the vigor of the party’s distaste for the president, outgoing party Chair John Burton, a longtime Democratic lawmaker and powerbroker known for his blunt and profane manner, extended two middle fingers in the air as the crowd cheered and joined him.
‘F— Donald Trump,’ he said”
