My Apology for Pelosi Repeal and Replace

Although I never agreed that she should be replaced, I did have a few criticisms of her. No more. Nope, I'm not going to criticize when that gives ammunition to the enemy and causes division among Democrats. I'm not going to criticize any more when no one has put forth an alternative. Pelosi works. Sure, I can dislike some of what she says, but if criticism is going to lead to infighting and possibly a much worse minority leader, then I will keep my mouth shut. I'm sorry that I ever jumped on the negativity bandwagon because it is counter productive and exactly what the right wing wants.

1. It was a disappointing day, and natural to lash out.

But boy did the Republicans jump on it.

That is a good lesson for us going forward. They are hoping for another Great Divide, like the Clinton - Sanders schism. We cannot give it to them.

2. Under a normal administration constructive criticism would be desirable

This administration is anything but normal, and any criticism is destructive. We have to be extremely careful.

3. Particularly since she is what is holding the Dem caucus together

keeping them from voting for Trumpcare and the rest of his legislative agenda.

The next vote for minority/speaker will be at the beginning of the next congress. That is the time to determine the position, not now.

5. Yes, she's herding the cats

who might otherwise go over to the dark side. (Mixing my metaphors there, huh?)

9. Absolutely. We saw the same with Clinton.

 

Being attacked as a liar when she was by far the most honest. Being attacked for copying Sanders when he was adopted her plans right and left. All day long. Wacky Wednesday all over.

4. Thank you for this

We need to not be seen to be in disarray right now.

8. When I saw the Orange Shitgibbon's tweet

mocking Pelosi's credibility, I had an epiphany. Yeah, I got that message loud and clear.
