Pelosi: Hey, There’s No Need To Change The Direction Of The Democratic Party

One has to wonder if Democrats saw this interview or read about it and went

(Daily Caller[2]) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she doesn’t believe people in the Democratic party want to take a new direction during an appearance on “Face the Nation” Sunday.

Despite the Democrats underwhelming results on election night, Pelosi said the party is not questioning its identity.

“Well, I don’t think[3] that people want a new direction. Our values unify us,” she told host John Dickerson. “And our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on.”

Yet, America’s working families have rather checked out on the Democrats in large numbers. They’ve been losing at the federal, state, and local level since the 2010 elections. Under Pelosi’s leadership (should that be in quotes?), the House has seen historic losses. You can obviously blame that a bit on Obama, but, Obama didn’t suffer himself in 2012. Regardless, she sees no problem with the values of the Democrats, like jacking up the minimum wage which will put so many of the working families on the unemployment line as they are priced out of a job. Or forcing citizens to accept the gender confused in the bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers with their underage daughters. Or all the Special Snowflakes and Social Justice Warriors having fits over everything that causes a little bit of upset, requiring safe spaces and coloring books and demands for fascistic regulations.

Or how the economy is basically hanging on a life line thanks to Democrat policies. Or the poor state of health insurance thanks to Obamacare. Or that they want gun confiscation. Or that they’re policies make citizens less safe from crime. Or that they favor illegal aliens over American citizens. Or that they want to bring in tens of thousands of people from areas rife with Islamic extremism with virtually no background checks. Or etc and so on.

“What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country. And that clearly in the election showed that message wasn’t coming through,” she said. “But we are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility, to be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.”

In Nancy’s World, it’s not that the message is bad, but that they need better distribution. I guess she missed that their message has been propagated via social media directly to the consumer, without the Credentialed Media filter, and it hasn’t helped Democrats.

That said, from a pragmatic point of view, Republicans should hope that Nancy holds the course.
