House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is worrying conservative talk show host Sean Hannity with her bizarre behavior Thursday following a spate of bad news that has come her way. And it has some wondering if the 77-year-old California congresswoman’s time has come and gone.
In fact, that’s what New York Congresswoman Kathleen Rice said when addressing her concern that Pelosi is no longer an effective leader for her party in Congress, according to CNN.
Rice expressed, "I'm not going to pretend that this is an easy conversation to have. It's not easy speaking truth to power. Nancy Pelosi was a great speaker. She is a great leader. But her time has come and gone. I've been very clear that we need leadership change. There's no question about it."
She wasn’t the only Democrat calling for a change after a series of humiliating special election defeats that were supposed to serve as referendum on President Trump.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) also weighed in, saying, “This is certainly something that we have to discuss because it's clear that, I think, across the board in the Democratic Party we need new leadership. It's time for a new generation of leadership in the party."
Even ultra-liberal filmmaker Michael Moore said a few things conservatives can actually agree with as he denounced the direction his party is going.
He wrote on Twitter, “u think the party who's won the vote in 6 o last 7 Prez votes but holds ZERO power &is now 0-4 in 2017 votes is going to win next year…...get a friggin' clue. The DNC&DCCC has NO idea how 2 win cause they have no message, no plan, no leaders, won't fight &hate the resistance.”
Of course, Moore wants the Democrats to go further left. Much, much further left. No big surprise there.
But in response to the loss of confidence in her leadership, Pelosi Thursday took a “bizarre victory lap,” as Hannity described it, insisting that she’s the attractive leadership the Democrats need to maintain her party’s power and financial backing.
“I’m a master legislator. I am a strategic politically astute leader. My leadership is recognized by many around the country. That is why I’m able to attract the support that I do, which is essential to our elections; sad to say,” she insisted with a nervous grin on her face. “I’m very pleased that the cooperation that we do, working with all the social media and small donor community to change how we communicate, but also how we attract resources, intellectual and financial, to the party.”
