Nancy Pelosi is Now Officially on Cher's Bad Side

28 June 2017

On today's MTP Daily, Chuck Todd took a look at a political figure he said may have loomed larger than President Trump in the Georgia special election last night: Nancy Pelosi.

She complained of the "vitriolic things that they say that resulted in calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my grandchildren - really, predicated on their comments and their paid ads".

"I don't think when people vote, they vote based on leadership in Washington", said Rep. Eliot Engel, the ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Archie Parnell in SC was a good candidate. The Carolina outcome was closer than in Georgia but drew little national attention. Nancy Pelosi's liberal agenda put America 20 trillion in debt, and Jon Ossoff is on her side. Republican Karen Handel beat Democrat Jon Ossoff by about 5 percentage points.

Pelosi's allies have pointed out that numerous negative impressions that Republicans have of her are equally true of House Speaker Paul Ryan among Democratic voters. Some expressed fears about the same tactic being used elsewhere as they aim to take back control of the House in next year's midterms.

He says Dems need to get out and listen to the needs of the voter to win back seats.

"I'm not saying it's fair but the perception in the world is that democrats are liberals, elitists from the coast who do not connect to working class people", said Ryan.

President Trump in a Wednesday evening rally slammed the Democrats for their recent losses in Congressional elections and boasted about Republican victories. But now, after a string of disappointments, those divisions have re-emerged, though Pelosi appears unlikely to face an immediate challenge. "And we better focus", Ryan said.

"In the districts where we are truly competitive, I don't think that [anti-Pelosi] message is going to hold very much", said Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif. "And I'm not sure that that's there yet".

"This is not anything personal between me and Nancy Pelosi".

"We need a winning strategy and I think the first step to getting to a winning strategy is a change in leadership", Rice told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day". Despite spending more than $30 million, Ossoff lost the district by a wider margin than Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Asked if Pelosi should remain the top House Democratic leader in the next Congress, her number two, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, told reporters "I understand that she is intending to stay" and added "I don't think anybody is going to impeach her". "We gave them a run for their money".

In the Ossoff race, even though the 30-year-old documentary filmmaker and former congressional staffer ended up running a more centrist and not Trump-centric campaign, Republicans were able to zero in on the more than $23 million in donations Ossoff raised, largely from liberal enclaves like California and NY, and make an easy connection to Pelosi.

Travel ban returns: What happens now, and who can come to America?
The decision , Cole told me, amounted to a "statesman-like attempt to avoid telegraphing how the Court would rule on the merits". The Supreme Court agreed to decide the legality of Trump order in its next term, which begins in October.

And Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat, remarked that "we had no business winning those districts" due to their GOP allegiance.

"It is Pelosi", Todd said, "who remains a pretty big drag for Democrats at the polls in certain districts, particularly this one".

The veteran San Francisco congresswoman held up her fundraising numbers and track record maneuvering major legislation through the House and declared she was confident she had the support from her colleagues to continue in her post. "And we've lost that message".

Many rank-and-file Democrats were not having it. Congressman Bill Pascrell of New Jersey downplays the attacks.

But prescriptions for how the Democrats should move forward varied.

One thing most everyone could agree on: Coming in second doesn't cut it now and wouldn't be an outcome to celebrate next November.
