Why it would be tough for Dems to quit Nancy Pelosi

Rather, Trump said, "That would be very bad for the Republican Party" if Pelosi were forced out.

Some Democrats in Congress have publicly questioned Pelosi's leadership in the last few days, asking whether she's a drain on the party.

"This is certainly something that we have to discuss, because it's clear that, I think, across the board in the Democratic party we need new leadership", said Massachusetts Democrat Seth Moulton on CNN. "They usually go after the most effective leaders, because they want to diminish the opportunity that we have".

They argued that the Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff's loss in the Republican held House seat in the Atlanta suburbs was further evidence that the party needed both a new message and messenger.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told reporters aboard Air Force One that Karen Handel's win serves as proof that "the American people are resonating with the president's agenda" and want to see his agenda enacted. The two have repeatedly sparred, with Schumer most recently releasing a video parodying the president's praise-filled cabinet meeting.

In a retort Thursday, Pelosi said, "I think I'm worth the trouble, quite frankly". "People in OH don't grab me about Russian Federation at all when I'm home", Ryan said.

But since the media collectively declared it a referendum on Trump-and would have gone haywire if Ossoff had won-there is a reckoning about what the Democratic Party stands for.

"She's a great fundraiser, but if the money we're raising through her leadership is not helping us win elections, we have to have this hard conversation now", Rice said. "I don't think anybody's fighting back". When Democrats have no choice but to rely on a banjo-playing, cowboy hat-wearing political neophyte to run a statewide race in Montana, it's a safe assumption that there are some recruiting issues that run deeper than House leadership. The CBC includes roughly 40 House Democrats, many in senior leadership and committee positions, including Pelosi allies. When it comes to her detractors, Pelosi said "my decision about how long I stay is not up to them".

Wednesday, Pelosi wanted to spend her weekly press conference slamming the Republicans Senate health bill. 'Make me an instrument of their, thy peace where there's darkness may I bring light, hatred, love, fear, hope.' You know the song of St. Francis I'm sure. She can boast about her unique ability to raise a stupid amount of money for Democratic candidates and causes.

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