Rice also bemoaned the treatment Pelosi received from Republicans, but that didn't stop her from maintaining the former House speaker should be ousted.
According to Politico, Democrats met to discuss the future of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi after the disastrous elections many hoped would demonstrate President Donald Trump's weaknesses, but did the opposite instead.
With the president's approval numbers hovering below 40 percent, should the Democrats be anxious about their losing streak in what could be considered an election year's pre-season? "And at some point I don't think we should sit back and take it".
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. Some users on both sides of the political spectrum were in agreement that fresh leadership is needed in the party.
It's about all they can do. "But I feel very confident in the support that I have in my caucus".
And after she predicted incorrectly that Democrats were poised to take back the House previous year, some of Pelosi's colleagues feel that this time around, she needs to deliver.
"I think I'm worth the trouble, quite frankly".
She continued that it's not easy to call for Pelosi's replacement, as she's been a "great speaker" and is a "great leader", but "her time has come and gone".
The two campaigns and outside groups supporting and opposing the candidates shelled out at least $36 million, including more than $22 million from Ossoff's campaign.
Advertisements tried to tie Pelosi to the Democratic candidate in that election, Jon Ossoff. "I would be very disappointed if she did", Trump said. But he said there is no doubt that "this is one occasion when we ought to say he deserves to take a victory lap". It's not fair. It's not accurate in its attacks on our leader, but it's effective.
"Congratulations to Karen Handel on her big win in Georgia 6th".
Rice's sentiment was echoed by other House Democrats in recent months including Reps.
Watters pointed out that President Trump has often said that under his administration, the U.S.is going to win so much that Americans are going to be sick of winning. In this week's election, Georgia voters, many of whom are skeptical of President Donald Trump and his tweets, demonstrated they nevertheless want more from an opposition than rants and adolescent rage over losing an election. The "cloud" of a Russian Federation investigation and potential obstruction of justice investigation into President Trump could get a whole lot darker - or evaporate.
Ryan believes his party has lost badly with established Democratic voters, saying: "People in OH aren't talking about Russian Federation or Michael Flynn or Putin".
Trump seems to enjoy the focus on Pelosi, taking another jab Friday after tweeting about her the day before.
In an interview with Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" that aired Friday morning, Trump said of Pelosi: "I hope she doesn't step down".
"We as Democrats have to come to terms with the fact that we lost again", said Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass. And we have one goal: "winning in 2018".
"There comes a time in every leader's life when they have to know it's time to leave and usher in the next generation of leaders", said Rice.
That's the skill and experience we have in Nancy Pelosi. "We're a family. We're going to have those discussions". "I'm a master legislator".
