House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi actually said that. Despite Democrats losing the House, Senate, and almost two-thirds of state houses, the American people don’t want a new direction? I would say the Democrat Party is in Denial.
The California congresswoman appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday and instead said the issue facing Democrats is simply a failure of communication.
DICKERSON: “The Democratic Party is in a moment of questioning about its identity. You were reelected to lead the Democrats in the House. What do you tell Democrats who want a new direction and then, go to you, what are you going to do differently?”
PELOSI: “Well, I don’t think people want a new direction. Our values unify us and our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on. What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country, and that clearly in the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through. 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.”
Pelosi also downplayed her party’s losses in 2010 and 2016, telling CBS’s John Dickerson “You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008.”
DICKERSON: “Here’s my question, though, Democrats since 2008, the numbers are ghastly for Democrats. Democrats are down 10 percent, in the House down 19.3 percent and in governors 35 percent. The Democrats are getting clobbered at every level over multiple elections. That seems like a real crisis for the party?”
PELOSI: “You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008, and let me just put that in perspective. When President Clinton was elected, Republicans came in big in the next election. When President Bush was president, we came in big in the next election. When President Obama became president, the Republicans came in big in the next election.”
This woman is delusional. The entire democrat party is in denial. Proof of that is the fact they are placing Keith Elllis, Congressman from Minnesota a racist Muslim as the top dog at the DNC. This is good news for conservatives. As long as the progressive wing of the Democrat party continues to keep their head in the sand about what the American people want; we will continue to win seats.
