Maureen Dowd defends Nancy Pelosi

I don't usual read Maureen Dowd but she makes a lot of good points here. And posted most of the article due to the Times pay wall.

Scaling Wokeback Mountain

By Maureen Dowd
Opinion Columnist

WASHINGTON — I was feeling on edge. Writing a column that sparks an internecine fight among the highest-profile women in the Democratic Party is nerve wracking.


Pelosi told me, after the A.O.C. Squad voted against the House’s version of the border bill and trashed the moderates — the very people who provided the Democrats the majority — that the Squad was four people with four votes. She was talking about a legislative reality. If it was a knock, it was for abandoning the party.

That did not merit A.O.C.’s outrageous accusation that Pelosi was targeting “newly elected women of color.” She slimed the speaker, who has spent her life fighting for the downtrodden and who was instrumental in getting the first African-American president elected and passing his agenda against all odds, as a sexist and a racist.

A.O.C. should consider the possibility that people who disagree with her do not disagree with her color.


But Congress is not a place where you achieve radical progress — certainly not in divided government. It’s a place where you work at it and work at it and don’t get everything you want.


“We fought for years to create the majorities to get a Democratic president elected and re-elected, and they’re going to dither it away. They have not decided what’s more important: Do they want to beat Trump or do they want to clear the moderate and centrists out of the party? You really think weakening the speaker is the right strategy to try to get rid of Donald Trump and everything he stands for?”

In the age of Trump, there is no more stupid proposition than that Nancy Pelosi is the problem. If A.O.C. and her Pygmalions and acolytes decide that burning down the House is more important than deposing Trump, they will be left with a racist backward president and the emotional satisfaction of their own purity.

House Dem Shreds AOC and Colleagues for Playing the 'Race Card'

House Dem Shreds AOC and Colleagues for Playing the ‘Race Card’: ‘Their Ignorance is Beyond Belief’

By Connor Mannion Jul 11th, 2019, 4:19 pm

A House Democrat blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her progressive allies for their ongoing feud with House Speak Nancy Pelosi, saying “their ignorance is beyond belief.”

Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO) fumed at AOC and other House progressives for their dispute with the House speaker, and accused them of playing “the race card.”

“What a weak argument, because you can’t get your way and because you’re getting pushback you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable. That’s unbelievable to me,” Clay said according to The Hill. “I could care less. I could really care less. I agree with the Speaker. Four people, four votes out of 240 people, who cares.”

No Bill Maher Booker and Trump were not saying the same thing

More and more Maher is revealing himself to be a rich, entitled, out of touch white guy.

Bill Maher loves Tulsi Gabbard??

Does he know her history and all her positions or does he just see an attractive woman that he wants to f*ck?

Any more debates like last night and Trump will be re-elected.

Dems attacking Dems will only damage the eventual nominee, whomever that is. That will only help Trump in the long run. We saw this 4 years ago and should not let it happen again.

Just watching Ari Melber

Didn’t know Will Smith was running for President.

The 2020 election is too important for our future

for litmus tests, pet issues and other petty differences.

There is only one political party that can challenge Trump and the GOP. It's not the Green party. It is not the Socialist Party. It is the Democratic party. We all need to support the Democratic party as strongly as is possible until the elections.

That means not withholding donations to the DNC because you think the Dems in Congress are not moving quick enough on impeachment. Refusing to work for local candidates because you don't like the climate change plank in the convention platform. Or staying home on election because the nominee isn't perfect or pure enough for you.

We have lost elections in the past because of silly things like this. But 2020 is far too important to the future of our country for anyone to sit on their ideological high horse.
