Partisan Politician Pelosi Had a Really Bad Day

Yesterday is a day that will live in infamy, at least for former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Still smarting from the Democrats’ loss of the White House, Pelosi continues to do all she can to obstruct President Trump and, once again, it blew up in her face. President Trump made sure the nation knew she and Chuck Schumer wouldn’t sit down with him to discuss the pressing issue of immigration. Making matters worse, a federal court denied a motion for a temporary restraining order that would have allowed Leandra English to remain as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Poor Nancy, she failed again in her attempt to usurp power from the President.

To say yesterday was a bad day for Pelosi is putting it mildly. She allowed ego and hurt feelings to trump (see what I did there) the possibility of proving the Democratic Party is willing to sit down and negotiate on important issues like immigration. Instead, she and Chuck Schumer chose not to attend a planned meeting with President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Seems Pelosi’s delicate feelings got hurt when the President tweeted ahead of time that he didn’t think there could be a deal because Pelosi and company were soft on the issues of immigration and crime. My goodness, if that wasn’t an opening to prove not only to Trump but to the country that the Democrats are willing to to deal with the issues plaguing our nation instead of playing petty politics, I don’t know what is. Instead, Pelosi and Schumer skipped the meeting. They then snubbed the President, offering instead to meet only with McConnell and Ryan. Never one to miss a good PR moment, Trump made sure to let the nation know.

Pelosi’s response? Let’s just say she made it clear — again — that she would rather put her own feelings and ego in front of the needs of the nation.

But it gets better. A federal court pulled the rug out from under her, Elizabeth “Raises Fist” Warren and other members of the left, when it denied Leandra English’s motion for a temporary restraining order against President Trump naming Mick Mulvaney acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. English, an Obama appointee to the CFPB, is, according to Pelosi and company, the “rightful acting Director” According to English and her supporters, this is because the previous director, Richard Cordray, appointed her to that position upon his resignation.

Mary E. McLeod, CFPB’s general counsel, sent the following to the senior leadership of the agency on Saturday, arguing that Trump has the authority to name the acting director. “I advise all Bureau personnel to act consistently with the understanding that Director Mulvaney is the Acting Director of the CFPB,” McLeod said in the letter. Yet, despite this, english pressed her motion. Note too, English isn’t losing her job with the CFPB. She would be acting as Mulvaney’s assistant.

But that wasn’t good enough for English, the anonymous donor(s) paying her legal fees for the challenge, or Pelosi. It isn’t so much that Trump dared appoint someone else to the position. It’s that he appointed someone known to be a vocal critic of the CFPB, one who has said it should be disbanded. Gee, does that sound familiar? Gov. Perry and the Department of Energy perhaps? How dare the President appoint someone like that to oversee one of Obama’s pet bureaus?

Wow, Pelosi even had a hashtag to support the bureau, to “defend” it.

It becomes clearer with each passing day that the Democratic Party on Capitol Hill doesn’t care about dealing with the critical issues facing this country. Instead, they continue to try to usurp power from the presidency in any way they can, while maintaining programs and positions created under the Obama Administration. For all they harp on how the Republicans obstructed Obama at every turn, aren’t they doing the same thing they condemned? Is the country going to have to collapse before they finally admit the two sides have to work together? Or will Nancy hold her breath and stomp her feet until she turns blue? If yesterday is any indication, the answer to both questions is a resounding “yes”.

    This is all new turf to the Democrats. For the past couple decades the GOP has demonstrated that they don’t know how to negotiate; that you don’t walk in to negotiations and lead off with where you wanted to end up. The GOP always started basically from the political center. The Dems knew it, so when they compromised between the two positions, it was always in favor of the left.

    Trump has changed that dynamic: he understands negotiations. He knows that his opening bid isn’t where things will end up: saying he “doesn’t see a deal” is a lo-o-o-ong way away from saying there is no deal. It’s merely an opening gambit. What has the Dems all constipated is that they will have to negotiated a lot harder to get the final product to the left of the political center. Before, the talks always started out in the center and could easily move left; now they have to work hard just to get to where they used to be able to begin – and with no assurance of even getting that far!

    P.S. I like that #DefendCFPB. ‘Defend’ as opposed to ‘Preserve’.
    If they are on the defense, then they are not on the attack. Good!

      I know. I love watching them, and especially Pelosi and her inner circle, running around in circles as they try to figure out what might work in their grand plan to take down the President. Even better is seeing the few Democratic members of the House brave enough to step up and call Pelosi out on what she said about Conyers over the weekend. They point out her comments in support of him, especially since she knew at least one of his accusers was bound by a NDA, hurt the party and women’s rights. Pelosi’s camp is now busy fending off attacks not only from conservatives but from her own party. It is so entertaining.

    • Mark Studio says:

      Well put. This certainly is untrodden territory for the Democrats. Now the GOP has a fighter that causes the ‘deer in the headlights’ look upon the faces of Pelosi, Schumer, et all. Rather enjoying it, and believe that this is just the beginning.

  • GWB says:

    Instead, they continue to try to usurp power from the presidency people and the states in any way they can

    They honestly don’t care about the power of the Presidency. They care about having power. When that power is the President, they push all authority over there. When it’s Congress, they push all authority there. When they can’t get elected dog-catcher, they push all authority to the Judiciary and the Bureaucracy. As long as they have the power, they really don’t care about the form.

    • Amanda Green says:

      True, but they really have a hard-on for Trump and they have let their hatred for him blind them to so much more. It’s fun to watch because they aren’t seeing how they are shooting themselves in the foot.

    ” For all they harp on how the Republicans obstructed Obama at every turn, aren’t they doing the same thing they condemned? “… Ooooh, I see your confusion, you assume they believe that the rules apply equally to both parties… No, no, no.. when Republicans do it, it’s “obstructionism”, when leftist democrats do it, it’s “standing up for what’s right”… God my head hurts from trying to think like a proggy… I need more coffee!

  • Bad Bob says:

    What’s so wrong about the hashtag: #defundCFPB? I kind of like it.

    Of course, Pelosi is a bad speller, so she didn’t get it quite right, but you gotta make allowances…

  • KenH says:

    She – and all the other RAT scumbags – can’t DIE soon enough. All that botox nan-nan, can’t be good for the brain….
