For a party that supposedly prides itself on “moving forward” and “progress,” they sure do like returning to the same old politicians.
For instance, on Wednesday House Democrats nominated Nancy Pelosi to be Speaker of the House….again.This despite all of the recent talk about some Democrats looking at someone else; a younger, more youthful presence to be their leader in the House of Representatives.
Yes, I know she is not officially Speaker of the House yet, but just who else is it going to be? Nobody else ran against her, and sure some Democrats might vote against her for speaker, but ultimately, Nancy “we have to pass it to know what’s in it” Pelosi is the next Speaker of the House.
But for Republicans, this is the best possible outcome.
Pelosi and Schumer will be the leaders of the Democrats in Congress come next January. Any failures in Congress and President Trump will blame it on Pelosi and Schumer and given how much they are already disliked, it’s probably going to play pretty well.
Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives made a major mistake by nominating Pelosi as the next speaker…again.
Hey, maybe they’ll nominate Hillary Clinton or John Kerry for president again, too.
