Democrats go their rear ends handed to them again. That Georgia election was the capper. Tons of money, Trump bashing galore, but once again not even close and definitely no cigar.
If you’d like to keep up with how bad things are for Democrats, check out these stories about how they are blaming their leaders and themselves.
The New York Times evidently feels the Democrats need to be flogged with a cat ‘o nine tails for letting Trump take a victory lap. In one of two major pieces today the NYT says “Democrats are reeling
And while they’re “reeling” shell shocked Democrats are looking for someone to blame. So the NYT is joining a general Dem stampede to drop the blame on Nancy Pelosi’s doorstep
There is some excuse making, like Don Lemon on CNN saying “Hey, it was so close can’t we call it a win?
” In fact Lemon was blown away when an Ohio Democrat member of Congress told CNN’s audience that in his area Nancy Pelosi is “more toxic” than Donald Trump.
It went like this:
Don Lemon: you think nancy Pelosi is more toxic than Donald trump?
Rep TimRyan (D. Ohio): You know what? The honest answer is in some areas of the country, yes she is. That’s the honest answer. I think in certain areas like in some of these special election districts it doesn’t benefit our candidates to be tied to her. She’s less popular in my district.
There is a bit of sense being offered on the Democrat side. Senator Chris Murphy, of all people, is now publicly admitting Democrats have gone down a dead end road
with the “Russia Collusion” story.
Chuck Todd at MSNBC: “Blame Nancy.” He says she’s a “drag” on Democrats in certain districts.
So what’s Nancy Pelosi’s reaction to all that? What’s she got to say about some of the members of her caucus who want her to step down and give way to younger leadership.
I’d say she doesn’t get it. This is what she said in reply to that question: “We’re paving the way for a new generation of leadership. Again I respect any opinion my members have but my decision about how long I stay is not up to them.”
Wow. It actually is up to the members of her Democrat House of Representatives. They voted her in, they can vote her out. Even if they don’t blame her for this string of Democrat losses (which as we have seen is not the case) she demonstrates again that her attitude is more monarchial than democrat.
