Speaking with Pam Moore of KRON4, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi boasted that the GOP has lost every fight this year. Moore theorized that despite the “disarray” in the GOP, the Democrats have been unable to “capitalize.”
What do you mean, not capitalized? We’ve beaten them on the appropriations. We’ve won every fight. The president’s numbers are in the high thirties, which is, for a new president, remarkable, that they be so low. So I think he is making his own case; the American people see for themselves that he does not share their values, and that he does not … some who may have voted for him are now rethinking, and others are just digging in their heels.
Pelosi then put on her rose-colored bifocals:
But we are getting ready for an election, the election of 2018. We expect to take back the Congress.
Then, the same tired old platitudes Democrats use that lack any specificity:
In the meantime, though, we hope to get Republicans to join us in our “better deal.” Better jobs, better pay, better future, tools for the future for families to see their children thrive and issues that relate to building infrastructure, physical and human infrastructure in our country. So we’re, in our view, in a good place.
If by “good place” Pelosi means losing election after election, then she’s perfectly sane.
But as Matt Vespa of Townhall pointed out:
Democrats lost the special election in Kansas to replace Rep. Mike Pompeo, who is now CIA director. They lost the race in South Carolina to replace Rep. Mick Mulvaney, who is now the director of the Office of Management and Budget. They lost the special election in Montana to replace Ryan Zinke, who is now secretary of the interior.
Not to mention the most expensive House race in history, where the GOP’s Karen Handel defeated the Democrats’ Jon Ossoff to fill the Georgia seat vacated by HHS Secretary Tom Price.
The glue Pelosi is sniffing must be good stuff.
