Older than synthetic rubber, this relic of the FDR presidency -- daddy was a congressman when she was born in 1940 -- she represents everything bad about the Democratic as
1. she fights ancient battles such as equal pay for women (it became the law in 1963) and gun control (it became the law in 1968),
2. while pandering to minorities,
3. and raking in the money while in office (she carved out an exemption to minimum wage to aid a tuna canning company her husband has an interest in).She is out-of-touch and out of ideas, as is the entire Democratic Party. Under Barack Obama, it became a party of leeches that hands out subsidies and other breaks to big donors.
From the Hill:
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House.
Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan's 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus. The victory sends a message that while there's a growing appetite for major changes in the party's leadership structure and messaging tactics, it's not strong enough to loosen Pelosi's grip on a liberal-heavy group that's rarely challenged her authority.
Ryan and his supporters had argued that the Democrats' grim performance in this year's elections — the latest in a string of cycles planting Republicans firmly in the majority — was a clear signal that Pelosi's leadership strategy has failed to attract the broad coalition of voters required to return the Speaker's gavel to the Democrats' hands.Live long, Missus Pelosi, while you kill your party.
Pelosi wins. 134-63. Live next on @CNN— Manu Raju (@mkraju) November 30, 2016
@@@What a relief. I was worried they had learned from the elections & might be competitive and cohesive again. https://t.co/cvwi0IxLdU— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) November 30, 2016
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
