61. How did she "single them out?"

And after their attempts to make Democrats look "racist" for opposing the nomination of Al Gonzales as AG, the GOP must be having drinks to celebrate that a Democrat has taken over that effort for them....




Ro Khana's Take on the Closed Door Meeting of the Democratic Caucus
with added context from John Yarmuth.

Steny Hoyer also spoke at the closed-door meeting.

“He said, come to me, criticize me in person. But let's be unified when we're dealing with McConnell. The real obstacle, which I agree with, is Mitch McConnell. Our fire should be directed at him,” said progressive Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.).

Leaving the meeting, Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.), a de facto member of leadership as the chairman of the House Budget Committee, said Hoyer emphasized that intraparty squabbles should be kept out of the public square.

“Steny gave a very impassioned unity talk just a few minutes ago, talking about how important everybody is to getting our agenda done [and] that if we have problems with each other we ought to address each other and not go outside,” Yarmuth said.

Asked if Hoyer’s message was directed at Pelosi, Yarmuth chuckled. “It was directed at everyone,” he said. “They know who they are.”

It is also being reported that Pelosi said:

“I hope there will be some level of respect and sensitivity for our — each individual experience that we bring to this Caucus,” Pelosi said. “You make me the target, but don’t make our Blue Dogs and our New Dems the target in all of this because we have important fish to fry.”
