DEMOCRATS HAVE MUCH BIGGER PROBLEMS THAN NANCY PELOSI…

Democrats 42

If those Democrats who are now so loudly complaining about Nancy Pelosi think that she alone is responsible for all of their problems, then the party is in far worse trouble than even they can imagine.  Because it isn’t just Pelosi, the Democrat Party has many more problems than her.  Now I agree that Pelosi is toxic, but so is Chuckie Schumer, as is ex-president ‘Slick Willy’ and wife Hitlery, as is ex-president Obummer as well as a long list of many other Democrats that would take up far too much space to list here.  Now according to most of the polling data that I’ve seen America tends to be moderate with a slight tilt toward the right.  The Democrats seem to be interested only in seeing just how far to the left they can go, and in the process they are leaving most of America behind.  It’s become painfully obvious that they clearly don’t care about ‘the people’ anymore nor the present state of our country.  Their only interest appears to be returning to power any way they can and once that has been achieved to maintain that power by any and all means necessary.  So it has become all about having political power.  Now while the Republicans too have issues, that discussion is for another day.

Tim Ryan, a Democrat from Ohio, has said the Democrat Party’s “toxic” brand under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi is making it difficult for their party to connect with voters.  And it was during a recent appearance on MS’LDS’s ‘Morning Joe’ that Ryan went so far as to say, “We’ve got a lot of energy in our base, which is very exciting for a lot of us to see that on the ground.” And he went on to say, “But you’ve got to beat the Republican and you’ve got to carry this very toxic Democratic brand on your back, too. That’s a tough thing to ask a candidate running for Congress.”  I would only choose to add that when your base starts thinking it’s a good idea to assassinate members of the opposition, then maybe they have a bit too much ‘energy’.  Anyway, his comments come on the heels of an embarrassing loss in a special election in a Georgia House race, the fourth such loss since President Trump took office.  Democrats and Republicans both invested heavily in the contest, which became the most expensive House race in U.S. history.  But still, placing all of the blame on Pelosi is being more than a bit myopic.  One person cannot be made responsible for the mess the Democrat Party is now in.

Ryan, who tried unsuccessfully to unseat Pelosi as House minority leader last fall, said that despite President Trump’s sinking approval rating, “it will be very hard” for Democrats to win back the majority in the House during the 2018 midterm elections with Pelosi in charge.  He said, “It’s going to be more challenging, certainly.”  And then he added, “You see these commercials that tie these candidates to Leader Pelosi week in and week out in the last several months. That still moves the needle.”  He continued by saying, “We can do it because it’s Donald Trump.”  And he said, “But I mean, you think, what if it was John Kasich?  What if it was Marco Rubio?  I mean, we would be in real trouble right now as a party, and we can’t forget that fact.”  From my own perspective I’m glad that it isn’t Kasich or Rubio!  And if he thinks that it’s only Pelosi that inspires distrust in the Democrat Party, then he hasn’t got a clue about what it’s going to take to ‘fix’ it.  And then it was in an interview with the New York Times Ryan put it another way.  It was then that he said, “Our brand is worse than Trump.”  Well no shit, isn’t that kind of a no-brainer?

And it was this past Wednesday night that Ryan told the Crappy News Network’s Don Lemon that it’s clear the Democrat Party has a messaging problem.  He said, “We have Donald Trump as president now.”  And he went on to say, “We’ve done something terribly wrong to make that so. And we’ve lost traditional Democratic voters that don’t see us as connecting to them, don’t see us as advocates for them. We’ve got to put ourselves in the best position possible to be able to win these races.”  He continued saying, “Look, I don’t think everybody should get a trophy in life.”  And he concluded by saying, “You get trophies because you earn them. I don’t like second place. I don’t like moral victories. I believe in the ideas of the Democratic Party. I believe in a government that could be both nimble but yet active and support social justice issues that are critically important.”  Ryan said he would rather focus on the party’s economic message than, say, the federal investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.  He said, “The economic message … is something that we’ve got to get back to.”  Adding, “There’s so many families struggling, and we’re kind of not focused on that as much as we should be.”

Sean Maloney, a Democrat from New York, put it a bit more bluntly and in language that we have all now become very accustomed to these days whenever listening to anyone in the Democrat Party.  It was Maloney who told the Washington Post, “Look, we need to win. Everything else is bullshit.”  And then said, “That’s all I’m going to say.”  And it was Kathleen Rice, another Democrat from New York, who said it’s time for Pelosi to go.  It was on MS’LSD’ that Ms. Rice was heard to say, “Nancy Pelosi was a great speaker, she was a great leader, but her time has come and gone.”  And she went on to say, “The rationale for getting new leadership is that we’re losing.”  And Rice continued by saying “Do I think it’s fair that the Republicans’ playbook over the last four election cycles has been attacking Nancy Pelosi and demonizing her? No, that’s not fair, nor is it accurate. But guess what? It works. They’re winning, so we have to address that reality.”  And then it was on the Crappy News Network’s ‘New Day’ that Ms. Rice said, with just a touch of sarcasm, “We’re not losing as badly as we did a year ago. Isn’t that great?”  And she then proceeded to answer her own question, “No!”

In a letter to her Democrat colleagues following Tuesday’s two rather humiliating defeats, Pelosi promised to put forth an economic message “we can all embrace.”  And in speaking to reporters on Thursday morning, Pelosi said she feels “very confident” she has the support of her fellow Democrats, and that the party is “united when it comes to our concern for America’s working families.”  Pelosi added, “I respect any opinion my members have, but my decision about how long I stay is not up to them.”  Ben Ray Luján, a Democrat from New Mexico and chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, sent a separate memo to members the intent of which was apparently to “motivate” them following what was described as being a ‘setback’ in Georgia.  Lujan wrote, “This is about much more than one race.”  And he went on to say, “The national environment, unprecedented grassroots energy and impressive democratic candidates stepping up to run deep into the battlefield leave no doubt that Democrats can take back the House next fall.” However, a nudist in Montana and a guy who didn’t even live in the district he was running in, in Georgia are hardly ‘impressive candidates.’

But as I tried to point out at the beginning, it isn’t just about Pelosi, it’s about the Democrat Party’s anti-America message and leftwing agenda.  It would seem that they are ‘for’ everything that a majority of Americans are against.  They simply can’t bring themselves to understand that the American people don’t want big government inserting its tentacles into every aspect of our lives.  There is nothing that Democrats wouldn’t regulate, or tax, when it comes to productive U.S. citizens, and yet when it comes to lawbreakers, illegals, radical Moslems, and all of the other anti-American fringe groups they fawn over, there is NO regulation.  In essence, the entire Democrat Party is anti-America.  Since ‘I hate President Trump’ is all Democrats seem willing to offer, people will look elsewhere to satisfy their needs.  People want tax cuts, economic growth, education, and jobs choices.  Hating Trump gets them NOTHING!  Everything the Democrats are in favor of suppresses growth.  Raising taxes suppresses growth, big government suppresses growth, more regulations suppress growth.  We need to vote them out to get those things we need.  If they won’t help, we need to get rid of them.

Ryan has it partially right.  Indeed, Pelosi has become rather toxic just as Obummer was wrong headed on almost every issue.  But the Democrats have now abandoned the folks who work for a living, focusing these days much more on mindless socialistic, social justice causes that nauseate the vast majority of decent people.  Yes, there is much wrong with the Democrat Party when Pelosi, Schumer, Hitlery, Wizzerman-Schultz, Obummer, and a whole host of other rabid social reformers speak about the middle class as if they actually know any of them.  When your message is less about the people who pay taxes and more about the people that don’t want to get off their dead asses and go to work, you’re doomed to fail.  My dad worked for 40+ years and never took one dime of assistance from the government and it pisses me off when I see people as healthy as I am doing nothing more than to sit on their butt or making more babies they can’t support, thinking that the rest of us owe them something.  I see 30-somethings still living their parents, even though they are capable of working.  When did we get to the point where we have no expectation of people being forced to GROW up?

In watching ‘Slick Willy’s’ speech in 1992 regarding illegal immigration, one would think he was a Republican.  I note this only to show just how far to the left the Democrats have now moved. ‘Slick’s’ support for DOMA and his work for welfare reforms would be rejected out of hand by today’s Democrat Party.  On top of that, it’s their stance on many social issues that have alienated many ‘moderate’ Democrats, if it can be said that such an animal even exists anymore.  If they don’t see that, then they’re BLIND!  It’s the policies advocated by the Democrat Party that makes their brand toxic.  What makes any particular individual toxic is the level of enthusiasm with which they push for policies that they KNOW are harmful to the American people.  And the ‘Democrat brand’ has been made ‘toxic’ because of their Obamacare disaster, their vile hate and intense rage, their idiotic Russian/Trump conspiracy drumbeat, their leftist ‘fake news’ media, coddling illegals, importing terrorist-infested Moslems, tax and spend ideology, political correctness, men in the ladies’ restrooms, taxpayers forced to fund leftist causes, and today’s liberalism pushing radical anti-American socialism.

No one can deny that the Democrats are in disarray!  And neither can anyone deny that they did it to themselves.  They allowed their lust for power to simply get the better of them and in so doing forgot that they were elected to serve all of America, not just part of it.  They forgot what democracy is and why we are not a communist country.  They started believing their own lies and have spent millions of dollars in the effort to try to make a Russia collusion hoax stick.  They don’t know what they are doing anymore and the more the media tries to help them, the more they make them look foolish.  They have no message other than ‘Trump is Bad.’  That won’t solve anything.  They have also only succeeded in broadening the chasm between themselves and the voters by their constant spewing of hate.  They need to ditch the identity/victim politics and lose the term ‘white privilege’ or they won’t win anything in the middle of the county for a very long time. They have lost 1000 legislative seats at the local, state and federal levels since 2009 and are 0-4 in special elections since losing to candidate Trump last November.  And yet still they have managed to learn nothing.

NANCY TAKES HER FREAKSHOW ON THE ROAD…

Pelosi 04

It was very recently that Nancy Pelosi must have thought that it would be a good idea to take her act, that which we typically only get to see coming from the floor of the House, on the road allowing people to see firsthand just how much of political crackpot she truly is.  And so it was then that on this past Monday we heard Pelosi tell those gathered at a Communist News Network (CNN) sponsored town hall that it’s simply too soon to be talking about impeaching President Donald Trump, even though some of her Democrat colleagues have been heard to be frequently using the word.  She said, “It’s a reflection of what they’re hearing in their own constituencies.”  And making her comment she mentioned a couple of her fellow Democrats, ‘Bonehead Al’ Green and ‘Mad Maxine’ Waters, and said, “But they know I don’t subscribe to that.”

And then in making even less than her typical amount of sense, Pelosi continued, “If you’re talking about impeachment, you’re talking about, what are the facts? Not, I don’t like him and I don’t like his hair and — you know, I think, what are the facts? I don’t like what he said about this. What are the facts that you would make a case on? What are the rules that he may have violated? If you don’t have that case, you’re just participating in more hearsay.”  She said, “And that’s not the basis of — and we owe the American people the — I mean, just some stability in all of this. This is the time where he is supposed to be having his honeymoon. What a marriage. The honeymoon — the honeymoon of — so we watch and see what he’s going to do, what is his vision, how is he going to implement it, and the rest. And it’s been sloppy.”

Now, of course, Pelosi certainly is free to accuse the president, and his administration of being sloppy, but she might want to remember that old adage about people and glass houses.  Because there came a point at this same town hall gathering that she might have wished to have been a bit more prepared.  Because the highlight of the night came when Jake Lee, a small business owner from West Hollywood, Calif., stood up to ask a question.  Mr. Lee asked, “Good evening, madam leader. Before the election on November 8, your side of the aisle were asking for the former head of the FBI to resign.”  And it was then that he went on to ask, “Now that he has been let go, why the sudden and selective outrage from your side of the aisle?”  It would seem to be perfectly reasonable question, worthy of a reasonable and honest answer.

And yet, as is usually the case, our esteemed Ms. Pelosi seemed to be have been caught off guard and became a bit befuddled.  “Some people were asking to be let go,” she said rather inexplicably (presumably she meant asking that former FBI Director James Comey be let go).  But she went on, her hands flailing about wildly and her eyes growing wide as saucers.  She went on to say, “I said I thought that it wasn’t a good — well suit — he wasn’t well suited to the heat that comes with the job, but I never said that he should be fired.”  Now while that may be technically true, her comments made back on Nov. 2 require a liberal interpretation.  On CNN that day, she said, “Maybe he’s not in the right job.”  She went on to add, “I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way.”

Now if that’s not a veiled threat, then I guess I don’t know what is.  And many people in her party were already calling for Comey to be canned.  But I digress.  It was then that Pelosi said, “And for the president of the United States to fire with his own self-admission that he didn’t like — he was tired of the Russia-Trump probe, is, uh, is, uh, uh, distressing. It’s distressing. We believe in the FBI as being an independent law enforcement agency, to be respected, and not to be fired by president because he’s tired of an investigation they’re doing.”  Then the former House speaker proceeded to launch into her old talking points about how Trump is a danger and a menace to the world, about how great Obamacare is, and yadda, yadda, yadda.  She once again made very little sense, but isn’t that really what we’ve come to expect from her?

But look, as much as the Democrats might wish there to be, there are simply no facts to support impeachment or the charge of obstruction of justice.  And if we’re going to use Obummer as our gauge in determining what behavior does, or does not, constitute an impeachable offense then there’s really very little Trump can do to earn him the same honor that has only bestowed on to two men, with both being Democrats.  But that said, such charges could be applied to Mr. Comey.  There was a ten month investigation (so far) over allegations of collusion with the Russians with no crime and no evidence to support any criminal charge.  Yet, Trump is never declared vindicated by our state-controlled media or those in the Democrat Party.  Meanwhile, the never ending criminal conduct from within the deep state continues uninvestigated.

Democrats and their many cohorts out in the state-controlled media have been so busy pushing their phony Trump colluding with Russia story that they seem to have forgotten to cover-up how it was that America hating Obummer changed NSA rules allowing classified intercepted info to be, unmasked and then distributed to lackeys who leaked it to the left wing media who then printed it all to undermine Trump.  Meanwhile it was Hitlery who colluded with the Obummer White House, the DNC as well as with the state-controlled media.  And it was John Podesta who likely violated federal law when he failed to disclose his stock holdings in a Kremlin-funded company while the Clintons received large sums of money directly and indirectly from Russian officials while Hitlery was Secretary of State….and the left couldn’t care less.

It is obviously a given that the district that spawned Ms. Pelosi is far from being the only district in the country that would seem to be populated by those who insist upon, for whatever the reason, electing those who are more interested in their own career than they are the folks back him.  I mean the list of examples reads like a who’s who of the Democrat Party with more than a few RINOs tossed in for good measure.  It would easy to list the names here, but we’re all too familiar with who they are, and doing so would really be nothing more than a complete waste of space.  And over in the Senate things are no better, with conservatives in the definite minority.  And sadly, it’s as long as a ‘bigly’ segment of the electorate remains ignorant that people like Pelosi will continue to be allowed to worm their way into positions of power.

And it’s in closing that I would like to offer up a little food for thought.  Now we all know, or should know, that those whom we send off to Washington are pretty grossly overpaid while also being seriously underworked.  And it’s even after they leave office that they continue to be the receiving end of a ‘pension’ that most of us can only dream about.  Our country is broke, so why is it that we, the taxpayers, should be forced to pay these individuals who have used their time in office as nothing more than an opportunity to get rich?  So with that being the case should it be unreasonable for us to expect that once they have left public office they should no longer receive any taxpayer money.  Few go to Washington to serve, and fewer still can be trusted to do what’s best for the country.  Sadly, most are like Ms. Pelosi.

NANCY PELOSI, THE IDEAL POSTER CHILD FOR THE ‘MENTALLY ILL’…

Pelosi 03

I’ve often heard, and read, that liberalism is essentially little more than the equivalent of a mental disorder, and what I’ve seen over the past few months, since the last election, I kinda have to agree.  Apparently it’s an affliction that most often strikes while one is still in their teenage years and then later is either cured of once one acquires certain responsibilities or continues to live out life with the disease continuing to slowly metastasize until one becomes like Nancy Pelosi, a raving lunatic.

And in an effort to demonstrate just how far gone Pelosi has now become, I point to her most recent weekly press conference, the one that took place this past Thursday, during which she took the opportunity to take pot shots at Republican lawmakers for taking a two-week recess for the Easter-Passover holidays.  Pelosi said, “Today, here we are, 77 days.”  And then she continued to ramble on by saying, “The Republican House departs for a two-week break now for the Easter-Passover holidays.”

She then went on to say, “I’ll begin by asking the same questions that Republicans will face from their constituents.”  And then she said, “What have the Republicans done with their control of the House, Senate and the White House to produce jobs?”  She said, “Where are the jobs?  Show us the jobs. Democrats believe we should focus on every day on job creation and growing paychecks for everyone, everywhere in our country.”  And yet, what was it that they focused on when they were in total control?

I guess my first question here would be to ask if Pelosi actually receives a copy of the monthly jobs report.  And if she does, does she not bother reading it.  Now it’s possible that over the last eight years it’s something she likely gotten out of the habit of doing, since it was a period of time during which far more jobs were lost than were created, and roughly 10 million Americans actually left the workforce because they couldn’t find a job and simply gave up looking.  But, that was then and this is now.

So what exactly is she talking about? The jobs are there, the reports show it.  Perhaps a better question to ask is what have the Democrats done in those same 77 days to repair Obamacare?  Obamacare exchanges are disappearing faster than Democrats from elected office, and some areas of the country will soon to be left, or have already been left, with no insurance exchanges whatsoever!  What have they done to clean up their mess?  Make no mistake it’s Democrats like Pelosi who own Obamacare!

I have to wonder if Pelosi’s staff or her speech writers have any input into what it is that she says.  Where are the jobs?  Does she or your staff not read the newspapers or read the government reports from Dept. of Labor?  Or is she just that stupid or dishonest?  I guess we can look for Nancy to be wandering around the empty halls of Congress during the next two weeks, just slaving away focusing on jobs while her fellow party of obstructionist slugs, and utter hypocrites, also go away for two weeks?

The real problem here is that those in the Democrat Party are genuinely nuts.  And I would even go so far as to say that some of them should probably be locked up.  Pelosi talks of infrastructure and it hasn’t even been three months.  What did Barry do for eight years, just how many of those supposed ‘shovel-ready’ projects ever actually materialized?  All he did was to give tax payers money to other countries and invite all the immigrants in and gave them healthcare, food stamps and welfare checks.

The Democrats had a president in office for eight long years and funny they weren’t too concerned about creating jobs then, and only pretended that they did.  Their president, Barry, was little more than the Jobs-Killer-in-Chief.  And yet at the end of every month, when the bogus jobs report hit the street, they all cheered knowing full well that the report was nothing more than a bunch of manipulated numbers the purpose of which was to create the impression of a rapidly improving economy.

Now that Trump is president and is actually creating real jobs for the American people while revoking job killing regulations, it’s all of a sudden that Democrats are now worried about creating jobs.  Democrats are liars and continue to demonstrate just how desperate they truly are.  They’ll say anything to get elected.  For example, remember when Hitlery said she would put the coal miners out of business.  Then she said, “I have always been for the coal miners. They took my words out of context.”

Pelosi exhibits that same ideological flaw that is possessed by essentially all Democrats in that she actually believes that a job cannot exist without there being significant intervention by the government.  What she completely swings and misses on is that the Republicans actually help a lot just by not adding to the massive amount of regulations already on the books.  Business owners now know that some level of relief from the threat of ever increasing taxes and regulations is on the way.

Let’s be real, Democrats care very little about jobs.  The only thing they wish to do is create more government dependents who will then vote for them.  They want to lower requirements again, to get food stamps, as Barry did, they want to extend unemployment ‘benefits’ for another year, as Barry did, they want to provide ‘free’ medical care for everyone, they want ‘free’ college tuition for everyone, they want ‘free’ public transportation for everyone and they want to expand public housing.

If they truly cared about jobs, the why did Barry, throughout nearly his entire eight years in office seem to go out of his way to make it more difficult for businesses to hire?  Businesses could not expand because the associated costs of Obamacare was a job killer and his ‘economic policies lead to millions of work eligible Americans giving up even looking for work.  Democrats want to keep their voters on the plantation and addicted to all manner of government handouts.  And jobs make that more difficult.

NANCY PELOSI SAYS NO CHANGE IN DIRECTION IS NECESSARY…

709

Well, if you can believe the newly re-elected House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat Party neither wants, nor does it need, to venture off in some new direction.  She said as much during an appearance on “Face the Nation” as recently as this past Sunday.  Despite the Democrats underwhelming results on election night, Pelosi put forth the argument that the party is not questioning its identity.  And it was to host John Dickerson that Pelosi said, “Well, I don’t think that people want a new direction. Our values unify us.”  And she went on to say, “And our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on.”  I can only assume that Pelosi must have been dropped on her head as a baby.

A number of Democrats blamed her for the party’s poor performance November 8, with Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan even going so far as to challenge her for her leadership position, arguing if they don’t change directions they will soon become obsolete.  Pelosi said it is not the direction, but the messaging that’s the problem.  She said, “What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country. And that clearly in the election showed that message wasn’t coming through.”  And added, “But we are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility, to be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.”

Republicans, of course, praised Pelosi’s leadership win, saying that as long as she is in power they believe they will retain the majority.  Because the message we’ve heard from Democrats over the course of the last six years, and the message we are likely to continue to hear, equates to little more than screaming racism at everyone who isn’t a Democrat.  And I’m not sure how that helps “working families” in any way.  And I’m confused about how it is that “fighting” for transsexual bathroom usage assists those same working families.  And I doubt the passing of a Rube Goldberg healthcare law “so we can see what is in it” only to find that what’s in it are huge increases in deductibles and premiums clearly wasn’t done with working families in mind.

And if by helping the American worker she means giving jobs and government aide to Illegals or having Americans getting shot by Muslim terrorists while calling the victims racist bigots, then yeah she’s right.  Pelosi is an old school hardliner who may have been powerful when the presidency, House and Senate were all under Democrat control, but as the leader of the minority she’s been far less than impressive. The Democrat Party is based solely on the spending of other people’s money.  They claim to be the Robin Hood political party, taking from the rich and give to the poor.  But I question their definition of ‘rich’, as I view more of my tax dollars being provided to poor illegal aliens and refugees in the hope of growing more Democrat voters.

When Pelosi says, “she doesn’t believe people in the Democratic party want to take a new direction”, I agree with her.  Democrats don’t want to go in a different direction. That’s obvious by the bought-and-paid-for-protests, the recount effort, and the continuing Snowflake meltdown in the media. That’s probably the first thing she’s said that isn’t a lie.  And when she says, “Our values unify us. And our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on,” I’m confused.  Because while the Democrats’ ‘values’ certainly do unify them, and they claim those values support America’s working families, it’s only so long as you’re not white nor a Christian.  And they certainly are all in agreement on that.

Pelosi said it is not the direction of the party, but its messaging that’s the problem.  The direction that she is talking about is sharply to the left, because there’s no other direction in which the Democrat Party desires to head.  As for the messaging, I agree.  But in order to get Americans to agree with your message, you must first have a cohesive, precise, and honest message.  And none of these three ingredient are apparent in the current Democrat message.  Before allowing America to understand your message, you must actually tell them what you stand for and that has never been the objective with the Democrats.  Because if they were to be intellectually honest with their message to the American people, it would be rejected outright.

And now that the media has been pretty much outed from their rather crowded ultra-Liberal closet, there is less of a chamber than there once was which allowed the left to do little more than to regurgitate their incessant talking points.  This message is definitely “off” as Pelosi so eloquently puts it.  To most rational, freedom loving Americans, the Democrat Party message is, to say the least, “off-putting”.  And that’s far worse than merely having a problem communicating something successfully.  Now I’m no genius when it comes to formulating a political message, but it would seem to me that the message I’ve heard coming for those in the Democrat Party for at least the last eight years isn’t one that would resonate with me, were I a loyal Democrat.

Pelosi “wants” to better connect the party’s message with working families, yet she won’t tell them she wants to raise their taxes, again, she won’t tell them that she believes that the sale of baby parts by Planned Parenthood should be funded by taxpayers and, worse yet, that she wants the courts to be able to prevent investigative journalist videos from exposing such atrocities.  Also she won’t tell them she supports grown men sharing public bathrooms with little girls, won’t tell them that she believes that whites should be subjected to greater scrutiny when entering college than people of color.  So she’s right about one thing: those messages were not coming through in the election, because they were purposefully omitted from the platform in order to obfuscate the truth.

Pelosi also says Democrats are united in regards to the security of our country.  Now if, by “security”, she means that we need to blindly accept without question hundreds of thousands of Middle Eastern refugees into our country, or that we need to continue to restrict the rights of legal gun owners, or that we must continue to whittle away at the Second Amendment, or that we must early-release convicted felons of “lesser crimes” in order to right past inconsistencies in the court system, or that we must embrace globalization and be a country without borders, or that we must continue to ignore the growing threat of radical Islam, then I guess “security” means something completely different to me and millions of other Americans than it does to Nancy.

But united the Democrats remain, at least according to Pelosi.  Except for those, I guess, who didn’t vote to re-elect her as their fearless leader.  But, I suppose, even those folks will eventually come around because, after all, independent thought isn’t something that’s usually tolerated from within the ranks.  So, I guess all in all, yeah…she’s probably right.  So what we have here is the Democrats being united and many of the American people being united, with there being a failure to communicate.  And if things remain as they are, never the twain shall meet.  And the longer that situation is allowed to continue the greater the chance remains that the Republicans will remain in control of at least the House and maybe even the Senate.
