I Wish Pelosi Could be Speaker Forever!

I can respect the fact that people have differing opinions of her. What I don't respect is the spineless moderates who have opposed her out of fear that the Gross Offensive Pigs will use her as an lightning rod. Any powerful person who takes a side will be used as a lightning rod in spite of their gender, but it makes me puke how when progressive women are used as lightning rods, so-called progressives and liberals (men and women) run for cover instead of standing up for them regardless of how extraordinary they may be.

Nancy Pelosi is probably the most successful House speaker in modern history. She will never have to apologize for any of her decisions. She will never suddenly resign because her caucus has become unmanageable. She will not spend her retirement in prison. I only hope the next Democratic leader in the House has a fraction of her discipline.

Ooops. I think I ranted.

1. And Walleed Shahid's Sunrise Movement Protest at Pelosi's Office.

Cameras rolling.

They've never uttered a damn positive word about the Speaker your OP honors.
Never.
And they aren't Moderates either.

Their target was always Pelosi. It still is.
Their slogan was a convenience.

5. Justice Dems are crucial BUT

They are arrogant AF. They don't need to be disrespectful of people with more political expertise.

8. They'll never recognize a Democrat as a leader nor wothy of any honor.

Their purpose under Waleed Shahid is crucial to only Waleed's self empowerment & enrichment.

I also have an issue with democratic members of the house who didnít vote for Pelosi to be speaker.

15. He's their comms director. Nothing they tweet or say goes out without his approval.

Same with Sunrise.

He's the big man behind the curtain,

17. He's as close as he needs to be.

Remember when his co-captain Saikat Chakrabarti was tossed out of his new gig as chief spokeman & gatekeeper to newly seated Cortez?
Well, Waleed Shahid is in the same gig only he physically operates the levers from outside the halls.

Its a job of mass communication so they all stay on the same theme of the day.

Comparing all their tweets, statements & texts is just a repeat of Waleed's own original.

Its just a weird observed phenomenon to see it in real time.

Waleed is the kingmaker. So he believes.

Whatever!! 🤔

2. I know...

... people objected to her timing of House impeachments, but she stood firm. If an earlier impeachment were successful, we might be in the second of Mike Pence's terms. Her timing and judgement calls are always admirable.

6. That's the thing.

When you're a lightning rod, people are going to object to everything you do. You could either act or self-paralyze. Pelosi acts!

3. Here, here!

Nancy Pelosi's backbone is forged in steel. She is tough when she needs to be and doesn't suffer fools gladly. I would have to say that there's not one person on either side of the aisle who does not (even secretly) respect her. She has extraordinary grasp on working the levers of power and has never kowtowed to anyone.
