Nancy Pelosi won’t run again, and not because of her age. She has just finished presiding over the destruction of the Democratic Party.
Pelosi and the Dems were ready to crown Her Royal Clintoness but the deplorables did the unthinkable, they elected Trump. From the moment that the most hated woman in the USA was denied her ordained position, the Dems have been out for revenge. Pelosi is no fool. She was against letting that pathetic woman expose herself in the Kavanaugh hearings. She and the Dems knew there would be no corroboration of Ford’s claims. The attempted smear failed.
Pelosi almost certainly knew that the Dems had commissioned and paid for the fake dossier used to start the Mueller investigation. She said several times that she thought impeachment was not a good idea, but finally caved in to the radical left in her party even though she was against it.
The lawyers advising her also almost certainly told her the only result from impeachment would be to satisfy their base’s need for revenge. She knew impeachment would fail in the Senate, so she and the Dems let their members rail against Trump in one of the most obvious hate campaigns ever.
Back in our grandparents’ and great-grandparents’ day the Democratic Party was a great thing. In he 60’s, Kennedy and LBJ elevated political correctness and socialism to favored status in the Dem party. The coalition of communists, socialists, atheists and LGBTQ’s found a place and a voice.
Agin, Pelosi is no fool. She knows that socialism is just communism lite, and just like lite beer is still beer, socialism is still communism. She surely can see that the Dem’s constant call for a popular vote is an attempt to overthrow the Constitution and our representative way of government. Pelosi has to know what socialism did for the USSR, China and Cuba. China was dying until it embraced capitalism. She wouldn’t be able to support a socialist Dem party.
I expect that as she reflects on the past three years, Pelosi will recognize her role in bringing down her party. The attempted Kavanaugh smear, the unworthy Mueller investigation, the “accidental” “mistakes” by the deep state operatives in the FBI and the non-impeachment impeachment have already backfired.
We have not one good candidate to oppose Trump. Elizabeth Warren is working hard to replace Pelosi as the most hated woman in the USA. Pelosi, if she doesn’t recognize it already, soon will recognize that she has won that honor with HRC’s political demise. The other candidates just aren’t viable.
No, Nancy won’t run. She let the hate in the Democratic Party overwhelm her better instincts. It has eaten up the party from the inside and she knows the Dems will turn on her and blame her for everything. There is no place there for her.
