Amid criticism, Nancy Pelosi says she's 'confident' most Democrats have her back

Parmenio Sano | 25 Giugno, 2017, 12:51

Even Trump said in a tweet that he hoped Democrats don't force Pelosi out of her leadership role.

Pelosi, in a press conference Thursday, defended her leadership during the special election saying that she is "very confident" in the support of her caucus and said that while she respects the opinions of the members of her party, she won't be stepping down. They just don't know how to make it happen. "We just don't have either one of those in the present leadership". "At some point, the coach has got to go, right?" said Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., today.

Kathleen Rice of NY, a frequent critic of Democrat leaders, told CNN's "New Day" that it's time for a leadership change and a winning strategy. Their action plan: Keep talking. "It's time for a new generation of leadership in the party".

It's about all they can do.

"It was probably one of the more disturbing caucus meetings that I've ever been in", added Rice.

"I am a strategic politically astute leader", Pelosi said.

The criticism toward Pelosi is not new but the recent backlash against her led some liberals to reiterate their support for the long-time party leader.


We're told Ryan's office is looking to swear Handel in at the same time as Ralph Norman, the Republican who won South Carolina's special election on Tuesday night.

In the run-up to the Georgia election, an attack ad painted Ossoff as a candidate with San Francisco interests. Oh-for-four. That is the number of special elections held recently in which - try as they might - Democrats failed to dislodge a Republican. It's not fair. It's not accurate in its attacks on our leader, but it's effective. "We gave them a run for their money". They need to win 24 seats to take control of the House in 2018.

Ohio Democratic congressman Tim Ryan told the New York Times that his party is "toxic" in large swaths of the country: "Our brand is worse than Trump".

At his big rallies last fall President Trump kept telling his supporters that, "We're just going to win and win so much you're going to get exhausted of winning". The "cloud" of a Russian Federation investigation and potential obstruction of justice investigation into President Trump could get a whole lot darker - or evaporate.

"We as Democrats have to come to terms with the fact that we lost again", said Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass.

However, she went on to admit, "a loss is a loss".

"The Democratic Party needs new leadership now", Cunningham tweeted. Apparently this approach doesn't apply to Nancy Pelosi. "So let's get started on winning the races where we really do have a chance". "(Tom) Daschle was a target, Tip O'Neill was a target", Pelosi said.
