The American People Want Change and Democrats Just Voted Nancy Pelosi Minority Leader Again

 

TRUMP SAYS DRAIN THE SWAMP AND DEMOCRATS STAND FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT STATUS QUO …

If you ever want to know why Democrats lost the 2016 elections one has to look no further than how they have handled themselves following the election. Yesterday, in a closed door vote, House Democratic minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) 134 votes to 63. After Democrats got hammered in the 2016 elections seeing them lose the White House to Donald Trump, continue to be in the minority in the House and Senate, lose governorship’s and state house elections, the party that refuses to listen to the people opted to keep Pelosi and her top lieutenants, Reps. Steny Hoyer (MD) and Jim Clyburn (SC). This is just remarkable. The Democrat party is no longer the party of the middle class and blue collar people, its the party of the power elite who are so far out of touch with the American people. Democrats in Washington appear to like the swamp and just voted back in the establishment just after a referendum election against the establishment. Just how clueless is the Democrat party, the GOP is certainly rejoicing.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House.

Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan’s 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus. The victory sends a message that while there’s a growing appetite for major changes in the party’s leadership structure and messaging tactics, it’s not strong enough to loosen Pelosi’s grip on a liberal-heavy group that’s rarely challenged her authority.

Ryan and his supporters had argued that the Democrats’ grim performance in this year’s elections — the latest in a string of cycles planting Republicans firmly in the majority — was a clear signal that Pelosi’s leadership strategy has failed to attract the broad coalition of voters required to return the Speaker’s gavel to the Democrats’ hands.

The critics pointed, in particular, to the party’s alienation of the middle-class Rust Belt workers, who flocked to Trump and secured victories for a long list of vulnerable Republicans down the ballot. Ryan, who represents an Ohio manufacturing district that’s struggled to keep pace with globalization and rebound from the Great Recession, said he was the right fit to make inroads with those voters.

Most Democrats disagreed, opting to keep Pelosi and her top lieutenants — Reps. Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Jim Clyburn (S.C.) — in charge of efforts to improve the party’s fortunes heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
