Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many

Democrats Try To Push Nancy Pelosi Out To Win Back House Majority

Donald Trump's presidency has galvanized Democrats in a way their own leaders have been unable to do, a phenomenon that masked persistent party divisions.

In the wake of the Democrats' loss in the Georgia special election, some in the party are calling for a new message and new leadership.

"I feel very confident in the support I have in the caucus", Pelosi said.

The plan, sealed among the conservatives who dominate the House Budget Committee, would largely reject cuts proposed by Trump and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney to annual domestic agency operating budgets.

"To come within a hair's breath of winning that seat is nothing short of extraordinary", said House Democratic Caucus Vice Chairwoman Linda Sánchez, D-Calif.

So far in 2017, despite the pipe-dreams of the Democrat Party leadership and the hopeful predictions of the Trump-hating media, Republicans are 4-0 in special House elections. "That's just the bottom line".

The challenge of Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, 43, for the leadership post after the election fell far short. "Business as usual isn't working", he tweeted.

In the Georgia election, Republicans used a tactic they've been using for years, setting up the liberal Pelosi as a villain who needs to be stopped.

And Politico looks at the questions being raised about the leadership of Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. They attack people who disagree with their insanity and demonize our duly-elected President with vitriolic hate. Democrats have been chafing in the minority since they were thrust there in 2010 after risky votes in favor of President Barack Obama's initiatives including the Affordable Care Act.

Some Democrats, though, have wanted her out, particularly after the party was unable to win back control in 2016, a year when the party was seen as having a decent chance of doing so. "Someone has got to step up and run". "Frankly, the battlefield and the enthusiasm on the ground are not at all tied to unrepresentative special elections".

No other Democrat possesses the stature to match those accomplishments.

Republicans succeeded Tuesday, but the results should leave them uneasy, said Kenneth Ellinger, a political science professor at Dalton State College.




"It's either going to end in a year-long continuing resolution or a bipartisan omnibus at the end of the year", Dent said after pitching the idea to fellow Republicans. That's not say they are off the hook. "Time to move forward and win again". Stivers noted that his committee has outraised its Democratic counterpart in four of the past five months.

"The whole Democratic message under Pelosi is built on fantasy", Watters said.

Ossoff ran on a decidedly moderate platform with millions of dollars to back him up.

All of this has created a rather unusual political dynamic within the Democratic Party: Republicans demonize a politician.

Kelly Iacobelli, a Republican marketing professional from Cobb County, is the kind of voter Democrats are aiming to bring into their fold.

"I think in this instance it had a motivating effect for our voters on the turnout front", Rogers said Wednesday.

Iacobelli voted for Hillary Clinton as an alternative to Trump, but acknowledged that "it freaks me out that I voted Democrat".

While Pelosi misunderstands America, she knows politics. "I think she's the most capable leader that we have and I can't imagine anyone else who could do such an important job and do it so well". "It felt too rigged". Veteran GOP ad-maker Brad Todd says that's because the San Francisco congresswoman is the personification of the liberal values they can't stomach.

It will be more challenging, though, he said. "Even in this hyper-partisan environment, campaigns aren't simply plug-and-play operations - they are choices". "That's a tough thing to ask a candidate running for congress". Government, as advocated by progressives, is impossible because it is impossible for a government to know exactly what each individual need or how much of it that they need.

"In the previous election - the Republican candidate won by more than 20 points". "It's time for a new generation of leadership in the party".

That the Pelosi-bashing continued to hurt Democrats - already struggling to get their bearings after Trump's win in November - left some fuming after a morning meeting Wednesday.
