Trump kicks Nancy Pelosi when she's down

"We just don't have either one of those in the present leadership".

"Nothing preps you for next election more than concluding your team is too virtuous to win & voters are too evil or dumb to see the truth", tweeted Jonah Goldberg, senior editor at National Review. "At some point, the coach has got to go, right?" said Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., on Friday.

Trump was quick to celebrate the Georgia win and accused Democrats of standing in the way of a legislative agenda bogged down by infighting and investigations into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation in last year's presidential election. Their action plan: Keep talking.

It's about all they can do. Ryan said they did not emerge with "any action items". She has the "overwhelming support" of her caucus, she said.

"I am a strategic politically astute leader", Pelosi said.

Pelosi, 77, has led the House Democratic caucus for almost 15 years, from the minority into the majority and back again. Pelosi was a central figure in the millions of dollars in ads Republicans ran against Ossoff, even though Ossoff had never even committed to supporting Pelosi as Minority Leader. She would also know that Trump owes his presidency as much to votes from disgruntled Democrats who once voted for Obama twice, as he does to rural Republican voters. "The Republicans gave him that", she said. Are the attacks accurate? No. When she won, when they said projected victor is Karen Handel, then they said "we switch to another program", right?

She continues to command a great degree of loyalty from many House Democrats, and allies dismissed the idea that her position was in any kind of jeopardy.

On that point, Ryan agreed that the Democrats need to focus less on President Donald Trump and more on economic issues. "Time to stop rehashing 2016 and talk about the future", tweeted Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass.

'There comes a time in every leader's life when they have to know that it's time to leave and usher in the next generation of leaders, ' Rice said.

The White House is suggesting that a Republican win in Georgia's special House election on Tuesday was a personal victory for President Donald Trump. We don't have either one of those. The GOP's candidate, Karen Handel, was considered weak and an easy target for the heavily financed Democrats, whose ample war chest poured in from donors on the left coast, California, and other liberal bastions.

But no. Nancy Pelosi is still their party's prom queen. "We're a family. We're going to have those discussions". "I love the fray". I thrive on competition, and I welcome the discussion.

Mrs. Pelosi has been her party's leader since 2003, overseeing losses in 2004, big gains in 2006 and 2008, then watching as her party slipped into its smallest minority in almost a century.

But Pelosi didn't sound like she was going anywhere on Thursday.
