Michael Reagan: I guess Donald Trump was right

Even some of the younger democrats are calling for her to leave the leadership.

"The fact remains that since Donald Trump won the election, since he was nominated, the Democrats have lost [4] elections", Behar said.

Why the relentless focus on the Democratic congresswoman from San Francisco?

"I don't think members of our party should pick up the line of the Republicans", she said. Handel won the seat vacated by now Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price on the same day Republican Ralph Norman defeated Democrat Archie Parnell in the race to fill the SC congressional seat formerly held by budget director Mick Mulvaney.

But after what happened on Tuesday night in special congressional elections in Georgia and SC, I'm beginning to think the Democrats are never going to get exhausted of losing.

Instead of betting on an escalating strategy of opposing Trump by all means and resisting the Republicans in Congress by any means, Democrats simply must offer their own answers to healthcare, jobs, infrastructure, the challenges of technology, globalization, trade and foreign policy.

"As long as Leader Pelosi is perceived as the leader of the House Democratic Caucus Republicans are going to continue to spend millions and millions of dollars in those swing districts to convince those swing voters, those independent voters, those Republican voters who might go our way, not to vote for our Democratic candidate because of Leader Pelosi", Vela said. Are they striving to find realistic solutions, or are they always returning to their old playbook, i.e. the government can and should fix every problem.

Hoyer said about the 2018 midterms, "I think we can win back the House, I really believe that". A defiant Pelosi said she's "worth the trouble".

It was laughable to watch the Party of Losers come up with reasons for why they never had a chance in Georgia, or say that the margin of victory was an encouraging sign of future Republican weakness. Simply by being Nancy Pelosi and living in a place that has become a symbolic battering ram for attacking liberals, she's become a liability.

A defiant Pelosi told reporters Thursday that she was "very confident" about the support that she had from fellow Democrats who now number 193. That a win in Georgia was going to be a huge referendum on what they perceive as unhappiness with the GOP party and our president blanketing the American landscape. Years later, it was Pelosi, Obama and then-top Senate Democrat Harry Reid. The Democrats were defeated in heavily Republican districts. If both stay true, the result may be akin to 2010, when a so-called wave election swept House Democrats from power in the wake of public opposition to ObamaCare.

"You see these commercials that tie these candidates to Leader Pelosi week in and week out in the past several months".

"The perception of Democratic leadership is so bad".

"Right now, what I'm pushing for is a conversation within the caucus", Rice said. If elected, I will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker. "You wanna win? You gotta move into the district!'"

Ossoff became a vessel for anti-Trump rage for liberals, raising nearly $24 million combined for the all-party election, but did not present an economic message that other lawmakers within the party have said the party needs in the Trump era.

Before the voting began, the New York Times described the race as "possibly the most consequential special election since Watergate". Fundraising wasn't enough. Outside groups like the Congressional Leadership Fund and National Republican Congressional Committee stepped in to help the GOP candidate, Karen Handel, make up the difference, giving $18.2 million on her behalf.
