Nancy is playing the GOP like a BOSS!

Here is why...and you can try to convince me otherwise.

The vote today on infrastructure was in no small way a testament to Nancy's Jan 6 hearings and investigation. Even Mitch, who says he didn't watch the testimony of the four officers (we know he did, even if it was delayed) sees the handwriting on the wall. The hearings are going to buttress Biden's/Dem legislation work. The GOP has learned from their polling that the people like the programs that Biden is proposing. Coupled with the MAGA-GOP insurrection attempt, the GOP dare not obstruct too much or we won't have to worry about voter suppression as bad it now seems. The voters will nullify those suppression efforts in favor of supporting Dem governance. They have now had a taste of what true government governance can be like and they mostly like it. The only thing the GOP-MAGAs will be left with is their racism...and that will be enough for the 30% which is their base. In the meantime, the wave of the 66% will sweep over them and sweep many out of office.

Just like the MAGAs who want their vaccinations hidden from public view, many will do the same with their votes. They like being helped to survive.

Nancy has played it wisely and calmly, handling both her right flank and her left flank. The left flank will soon wise up and help get the rest of Biden's agenda through as soon as they understand that they will have a better chance to get what they want if they hold steady and get a few more Senators...just one or two will do.

1. In dangerous waters, you need a firm and knowledgeable hand on the till

We are fortunate to have the best in both houses of Congress and in the White House. Their position is precarious but if anyone can carry the day, it is these people.

4. Absolutely.

Pelosi's long experience is a big reason why we're getting through these messes in one piece.

7. The thing that has bothered me about your politics is your politics

The fact that members vote to make a statement rather than vote because it is the right thing to do. It is so transparent and so insincere.

9. Great post Joe.

Would make a great LTE for the NY Times or Wash Post.
I'm sure it would bring tears to the eyes of many Re-Publicans.

10. Bennie needs to keep the pressure up and keep the attacks on law enforcement in the headlines.

 

I would like to see four or five different officers who were attacked on Jan 6. The public needs to understand that the Committee is not just showing these four but there were others who were equally attacked and hurt. The that are shown, the less the FOX MAGA viewers can ignore as staged performers.

11. Yes, I've been thinking the same thing.

Show that many, many others were badly affected, and not let the Right-Wing write the four off as disgruntled Liberals.

I'm hoping they'll be able to get this point out.

12. Good post but it was a full blown MAGA-GOP insurrection

and an attempted coup.
