Trump kicks Nancy Pelosi when she's down

The House Democratic leader is seeking to reassure Democrats dejected after a loss in a Georgia special election where the party invested millions of dollars.

The response from some: It better be.

The apparent effectiveness of that messaging suggested to some that the 77-year-old Californian could be a liability for Democrats as they aim to regain their majority.

"Then there's also the numerous times Pelosi has praised former neoconservative and Wall Street shill President George W. Bush - she even wished for him to be back in the White House".

Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Texas told Politico that Pelosi will continue to be an albatross for Democrats if she remains. "It's clear, that I think, across the board in the Democratic Party, we need new leadership".

"I know it's easy to feel disappointed and defeated", Lujan said in a video message to Democrats. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party".

Republicans "want to go after the most effective leaders", the San Francisco Democrat said at a news conference Thursday morning. The contests to fill those open seats increased Republican margins in Congress, while disappointing Democrats who saw the special elections as an early test for the Trump presidency. Most notably, Karen Handel won a Georgia Congressional seat against "dream" Democrat candidate Jon Ossoff. And we need a message-how are we going to get there?

Ryan represents manufacturing-heavy areas in OH such as Akron and Youngstown, where many white-working class voters cast their ballots for Trump. So it's time for change. This time I did. Could Ossoff's loss mean that Democrats may want to consider trimming some their more controversial figures if they hope to win the never-Trump crowd?

But an Ossoff victory would help Democrats raise money and recruit candidates as they try to win back control of the House of Representatives in 2018.

Ryan talked about his party last night on Hardball.

Keeping Pelosi, in leadership since 2003 and formerly the first female speaker of the House, would actually be a boon for the GOP, former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich told "Fox & Friends" Thursday.

Pelosi is a prolific fundraiser for her party, and a savvy legislator with few rivals on Capitol Hill when it comes to cutting the deals necessary to keep government in motion.

She was referencing other Democrats speaking their mind on news shows.

Whether or not Pelosi was the only reason for the Democrat's defeat is speculation, but nonetheless there are growing calls for her ousting.

"We don't agonize, we organize", she concluded.

In Georgia's 6th Congressional District, Democrats spent over $20 million with millions more pouring in from outside groups.

"She's easy to demonize".

"If we think we're going to win these elections because President Trump's at 35 percent, I think in districts like mine and certainly Georgia and SC, it takes more than that", said Rep. Tim Walz of Minnesota.
