35. To many people

are not aware of the skill set necessary as well as the experience to due the Speakers Position. If one needs a failure example,look no further than Paul Ryan .

BTW,look who is the new Assistant Speaker,a fellow whom represents the Changing America Landscape. Pelosi just drove a huge spike into the coffin of the Rethugs with this Guy. And the Girl is preparing for her retirement and leaving the California Model on the Democratic Party for decades.

He has a somewhat successful, noteworthy background in the House, esp as campaign chairman for the 2018 mid-terms.

So there's an experienced team at the top going into 2019, which we're going to need.

I admit I was not too thrilled with either one, but just like with Obama I changed my mind after seeing them in action.

BTW, where was Mitch? and MCarthy?

I walk my dogs down Nancy Pelosi Drive almost every day. If Trump every did his homework, he'd know that she came from Baltimore's Little Italy, where her father was a US Rep and her brother was the mayor.

She can chew up Trumps and spit them out before breakfast & still put in a day's work thereafter.

46. OUCH!

How thoughtful of her to wear red - so the blood she just drew from him doesn’t show quite so obviously. How discreet!

She can count votes better than ANYBODY. And she’s OURS. And as of early next month, she’ll be second in line to the Presidency. Just after his little pet poodle, Pence.

It just struck me - at the next State of the Union, there she’ll be. Seated one level up, behind him, and in every shot that shows the dais from his podium of ill-gotten gain. Lurking behind him not unlike the way he tried to lurk behind Hillary during one of the debates. Payback really is a bitch, ‘eh?

NancyPelosi returned from the WH meeting with the president today and went STRAIGHT for the most sensitive part of Trump’s ego: his masculinity. “It’s like a manhood thing with him — as if manhood can be associated with him,” she told her colleagues just now.

64. I wish we could, but that bumper sticker, like tide pods, have a long shelf life.

The most transparent tell about the trumpeting of "new blood" is that no one ever objectively defines it, thereby denying any valid compare-and-contrast.

It's a vague and rather meaningless fortune cookie, so I kinda get why they wrap themselves in it.

See how that works? She (and Schumer) gave him what he said he wanted, offered to change it, and proceeded to cream him six ways from Sunday in front of cameras. They were only too happy to give him what he said he wanted and then turn the tables on him bigly.

I wish she hadn't requested they argue off camera and away from TV and the press. That made it look like they were afraid they might be shown up or had something to hide/weren't being transparent, etc.

Trump was obnoxious as usual, just like with Hills - interrupting, talking over them, etc. Unfortunately, his supporters will see that as strength and showing them libruls who's boss for the win. A real he-man. Sensing the opportunity to score points with his crass, deplorable base, he may very well have set this up .

Chances to confront and debate Trump in public will be few and far between.

89. I don't think it looked like that at all

She simply made it clear that she didn't think that this kind of on-camera mud-wrestling was appropriate but now that it was happening, it wasn't she and Chuck who provoked it.

I love how she kept saying it wasn't appropriate to do this in public - and then in the next breath, as if to say, "but since you brought it up," she smacked his raggedy ass down ... in public.

I think he did set it up, but it blew up in his face. Any supporter who thinks he put her in his place already thinks he's a gladiator, so he didn't improve his standing with them. But I suspect that plenty of Republicans were impressed with Nancy and Trump diminished himself in their eyes, whether or not they admit it.

And he helped Nancy built support in her own once-shaky base.

154. well who do you think that is effective for? Getting into the mud and splashing it

 


on us as we try to rise above it has been the GOP mo for decades now and it has worked. I don't see how this wouldn't look to those who are either painfully confused, or are already in Trump's camp, like he's the one telling it straight and the Democrats are the ones who want to do "politics" in a back room, out of the public eye. That was how it seemed to me it might strike others, even while I understood that her argument was more about the delicate nature of negotiations and not burning it all down.

I appreciate that they didn't let his shit stand, but they COULD NOT let his shit stand and he graciously, stupidly, opened up the door for them so that they didn't have to do the very uncomfortable thing of interjecting or interrupting the President. He was certainly his own worst enemy here, except that he showed the restraint of a well mannered 5 year old for once and didn't actually have a melt-down as I've seen headlines suggest....or at least not during the exchange. And somehow he kept his bile and compulsion to insult and demean to a minimum.

That said, that's my main gripe. I don't know about the heaped on praise because I don't know how many points were scored, unless you want to count all of the establishment news sources that have been waiting eagerly for this kind of material to say SEE this is why we need Pelosi! If that's what you mean by shoring up her shaky base...I guess presenting a narrative that we have a fighter because she will stand up to Trump when he lies in front of us is something...but she already had the speakership locked up. Her hapless challengers from the right of the party showed just how tone deaf they were thinking they could just incite an uprising by saying "replace."


I'll take it as a win, and I'll take any coverage that says Trump is a buffoon and the democrats cleaned his clock as a good thing, though how much does that help if its just preaching to the choir. Which leads back to my issue with this. I don't think any haymakers were thrown, no knock-out punches...and Trump literally put his chin out there. If I'm scoring, of course Schumer and Pelosi won, but how could they not win? That is such a low bar, and the only thing we really got out of this was Trump owning that he would welcome a Shutdown, which he's literally already owned in the past. Its just that he doesn't care what he's said in the past, and won't care going forward either.

BUT what is being done is this democratic bubble of praise that is being liberally attributed to some sort of video game level fatality. Perhaps that's what so many people genuinely came away with from this(and maybe its because we really need something like this)...its just that given what I thought I witnessed, it triggers my cynicism more than a little.

May heard cats well, and have the best vote count, know how to twist arms behind the scenes etc., but she projects weakness. Kamala Harris the opposite. Clear and concise with a command presence. Her and Shumer did well in that they got the President tripped up and got him to own a shut down.

They need to fact check him on camera especially about the caravan and the wall. I did not like that they let him say 10 terrorists were taken into custody last month implying they came from the caravan which is a lie that stood unchallenged.

Which is no big deal since the people whose opinions about Pelosi really matter - the members of her Democratic Caucus - know exactly what the job entails and know that Nancy Pelosi is one of the best in history at doing it.

And you seem to have mistaken a soft voice and dignified demeanor with “weakness.” Pelosi’s trophy wall is lined with people who made the same error of misjudging her.
