Nancy Pelosi, everyone’s favorite California Democrat, is feeling emboldened following the Democrats win in the House of Representatives.
If that weren’t the case, then why would she think she’s a shoe0in for the Speaker of The House position.
It’s either that or she’s on drugs.
Sadly for those who don’t enjoy Pelosi’s brand of politics, the truth is Pelosi likely isn’t in on drugs and really does stand a chance of becoming a political juggernaut.
Ever since losing the House Majority over 8 years ago Nancy Pelosi has been a thorn in the sides of Republicans. That’s why they spent over $90 million dollars in the run-up to the elections trying to keep her and other Dems from tilting the balance of power away from the GOP in the House.
Republicans know she’s a threat. She’s partly responsible for the Affordable Healthcare Act being passed, and in the past several years she’s been responsible for various other government oversteps that have harmed our country severely.
And truth be told her position as House Minority Leader shows that many people in will support her to ascendancy in the House. This despite disagreement in her own party about her worthiness of speaker.
EvenTrump thinks she’s the heir apparent to Paul Ryan. He even tweeted she deserved the position.
Admirably, Pelosi actually walked those comments back.
“I don’t think anybody deserves anything… what you have done in the past speaks to your credentials, but it’s about what you can do, and I think I’m the best person to go forward to unify, to negotiate… “
But she definitely wants the position. Which is why as soon as the elections were over Pelosi submitted a letter announcing her desire to pursue the position with vigor. She officially announced her bid on Wednesday the 7th and claimed she’d focus mainly on health care, the economy, and oversight.
Pelosi Is A Serious Threat to Republicans In Congress
Pelosi is a serious threat to the Republicans in the House and her power fill lead to gridlock in Congress if she is selected as Speaker.
She’s already served as speaker in 2007-2011.
And she was the tip of the spear when it came to guiding the economic stimulus package, the banking overhaul bill, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Affordable Care Act to become law.
With the country more polarized than it’s been in recent history, you can be sure the Democrats are going to throw their full support behind whatever fearless leader they can find.
Even if they said they wouldn’t already.
