House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has one of the toughest jobs in Washington: Dealing with the democratic party’s mass radicalization and absurd rhetoric.
As the old saying goes, this has been akin to herding cats for Madame Speaker, particularly on the subject of impeachment where she seems to be fighting a losing battle. The left side of the party is keen to get the ball officially rolling against the President while Pelosi attempts to keep her finger in the dam.
One has to wonder if the stress of it all has gotten to the aging politician, as her latest claims regarding a recent rash of retiring republicans reek of obliviousness.
When asked about 15 House Republicans announcing retirement, Pelosi said, “I think it’s an indication that Republicans know that they’ll probably be serving in the minority in the next Congress and most likely with a Democrat in the White House. So I think it’s time to spend more time with their families.”
Pelosi ought to tread carefully in regard to this confidence, lest she wish to instill a false sense of security in her base.
The alleged “inevitability” of Hilary Clinton’s win in 2016 likely kept a great many democratic voters home, believing that there was no possibility that their candidate would have lost.
