House Dem: Pelosi's Time Has 'Come And Gone'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif. speaks to reporters during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday The Latest: White House paints Handel win as Trump triumph

"This is not a glass that's almost empty but almost full and we're ready to win the Congress in the next election but in the mean time we don't want those in power to do harm to anyone in our country and certainly not the LGBT community". And they've been winning a lot.

The president wrote Thursday: "I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out".

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.

"Say "no" to Pelosi's "yes" man", blared one ad from the Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC.

Said Rice: "The Republican playbook has been very successful".

Why the relentless focus on the Democratic congresswoman from San Francisco? President Obama won two national elections handily while the Democratic Party was suffering a series of debilitating defeats that has left it in the worst shape it's been in almost a century.

While Republicans have mocked Pelosi's leadership in the past - the Republican National Committee sarcastically endorsed Pelosi for minority leader previous year - the party's successful strategy of linking Democratic congressional hopefuls to the unpopular minority leader has caused some Democrats to call for new leadership.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich also spoke of the potent tool Pelosi is for Republicans to use against Congressional Democrats.

Trump was referring to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is facing questions about her leadership after Democrats lost the Georgia special House election.

"My decision about how long I stay is not up to them", Pelosi said earlier in the conference. A defiant Pelosi said she's "worth the trouble".

She says Democrats "gave them a run for their money in all of them". "I think you'd have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top", Congressman Filemon Vela told Politico".

"Sen. (Harry) Reid was a target, Sen". Now, with Obama and Reid gone, Republicans have occasionally tried latching Democratic senators to Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren, with mixed results. "She has been a great leader, but like every leader, time immemorial, it's time for people to know when to go", Rice said.

"This is not anything personal between me and Nancy Pelosi", insisted Rice". Keep raising the concern that something needs to change within the ranks of the party's leadership. If elected, I will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker. "Time to move forward and win again".

Republican Karen Handel wins Georgia.

Lawmakers are also bemoaning a weak Democratic bench of candidates nationally, and demanding a better strategy for success and a new and stronger economic message that differentiates them more clearly from the Republicans.

And while Democrats have been on a losing streak lately - going down to defeat in all of the special congressional elections so far this year - she said that would turn around soon.

He added that the Dems should not rule out the fact that a #Republican party's Karen Handel won against Jon Jossoff at 52 percent to 48 percent in Georgia. But their reluctance left Ossoff running on a milquetoast message, allowing Republicans to drive the narrative that he would be a Pelosi lackey on Capitol Hill. But he said it should send a strong signal to Democrats thinking about taking back the White House.
