This is going to shock a lot of people but I’ve gained a bit of respect for Nancy Pelosi over the last couple of months.
Don’t get me wrong, I still think she backs some of the worst policies that the nation could consider and her pretense of wearing her Catholicism on her shoulder while embracing the intrinsic evil of abortion is an abomination that I wouldn’t want to have to explain to St. Peter, particularly if I was at an age when I’d be likely to meet him sooner rather than later.
But despite all this I’ll say this for her, she’s damn loyal to her party even when they’re not loyal to her.
For months she tried to restrain the impeachment hotheads, trying to explain to these loons that it was a bad and losing strategy, that it would only embolden the President and weaken the party at a time when they needed a better strategy to have a shot at victory in 2020.
For this she was pummeled by the left and the Democrats until finally she relented.
So now here we are, with the President about to be acquired, and the state of the union about to take place where he can rub their face into it and the whole lot of them being made into fools and what is she doing?
- Is she disavowing impeachment as a mistake that wasn’t of her making?
- Is she publicly blaming the media and the left for pushing her in the wrong direction?
- Is she loudly proclaiming to all “I told you so!”?
She’s is still on the attack on the President and pretending that all of the disasters that she predicted didn’t happen.
Or put simply she’s showing more loyalty to the party than they’ve shown to her and making the best use of the bad hand she was dealt.
Given the backstabbing nature of DC that’s pretty damn impressive, but I doubt she will get any gratitude from those leftists for getting out front of a cause she thought was foolish instead of letting them take the blows.
Her pals on the left might not be impressed by I sure in hell am.
Update: John Nolte disagrees, his piece is here, I’l answer it tomorrow.
