The recently re-elected Minority Leader of the House of Representatives is nutter than a Christmas Fruitcake.
The New York Post reports that
Nancy Pelosi just gave Republicans another reason for celebration.The newly elected Minority Leader insisted Sunday Dems aren’t looking for a “new direction” even after the bruising Election Day defeats and a GOP monopoly in Washington.
A defiant — and possibly delusional — Pelosi stood firm about her party’s future when pressed with what she’ll do differently to deal with Democrat discontent.
“I don’t think people want a new direction,” Pelosi told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “Our values unify us and our values are about supporting America’s working families.”
Pelosi was reelected Democratic Leader last week after a surprising challenge from Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan who argued Dems must do more to speak to working class voters in the rust belt and not just coastal liberal elites. Pelosi batted back the threat to her reign with 134-63 vote win, and has since downplayed the dire straits for the Democratic Party as cyclical changes.
“Let me just put that in perspective,” Pelosi said. “When President Clinton was elected, Republicans came in big in the next election. When President Bush was president, we came in big in the subsequent election. When President Obama became president, the Republicans came in big in the next election.”
And losing the White House and control of Congress, she says, has a silver lining – because jobless DC Dems will go back to their home states to run for governor, state seats and build up the bench.
“The states receive an infusion of talent,” Pelosi said. “President Obama, going out the office, sadly not having President Clinton come in. But those Democrats will go back, run for governor, run for congress, state legislatures, and the rest, and we will build up the numbers.”
Pelosi has led the Democratic caucus for 14 years and became the first female House speaker in 2007. Republicans were mockingly advocating for her to win the leadership election again because she’s been “great” for the GOP.
“I’m rooting for Nancy!,” GOP Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said last week. “She may have more support in our conference than her own conference.”
The word “delusional” does not even begin to cover San Fran Nan’s illogical statement.
Nancy Pelosi’s station in life defies logic.
That has to be the most tone deaf statement made about a nation’s people since Maria Antoinette, when supposedly asked about the starving rabble in France, quipped,
Let them eat cake!
For her to completely ignore the Historic Results of the Presidential Election held on November 8th, 2016, which saw an American Businessman and Entrepreneur, a novice to the Political Game, defeat a woman who has been in politics just about all of her adult life, does not just “strain” credulity…it stomps that sucker flat.
There are two possibilities for Pelosi’s miss judgment of the American People:
- She has been so sheltered from us “rabble” during all of those years up on Capitol Hill, that she simply is clueless to the daily lives of average Americans and how we feel on the issues of the day. Or…
- She is a victim of galloping dementia.
The brilliant Conservative Economist, Dr. Thomas Sowell once wrote,
…Perhaps the most remarkable feature of the world envisioned by today’s liberals is that it is a world where other people just passively accept whatever “change” liberals impose. In the world of Liberal Land, you can just take for granted all the benefits of the existing society, and then simply tack on your new, wonderful ideas that will make things better.
Liberal Ideas always cost taxpayer money…and they never make things better for the average American.
President Ronald Reagan once famously said,
It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.
A quotation which also helps to explain Pelosi’s gross overestimation of the popularity of Liberal Ideals among Average Americans here in “Flyover Country”.
Pelosi’s denial of the fact that Americans voted for change appears to be a part of an alternative reality that she and the rest of the “Special Snowflakes” who voted for Hillary Clinton and who compose the Far Left Base of the Modern Democratic Party, seem to have transported themselves into, upon hearing of Donald J. Trump’s victory in last month’s Presidential Election.
The pain of their frustration is so immense over Clinton’s loss that they have created a reality in which Clinton beat Trump, having won the hearts and minds of the American People.
Their undersized medulla oblongotas and oversized craniums will not allow them to accept the fact that Americans completely rejected their candidate, Hillary Clinton, and their Political Ideology on that fateful day in November.
So, they have retreated to that alternative reality, where they can feed and ride their unicorns somewhere over the rainbow and where they will find rest in their “Safe Space”.
Let them stay there.
The men and women of this nation, after 8 long, arduous years, finally, once again have an American President.
The time to “Make American Great Again” is at hand.
Until He Comes,
