Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced that the Democrats were going to win a majority in the House of Representatives. She also said if they have a bigger victory, they’ll win the Senate and governorships.
Colbert wasn’t happy with her optimism.
“Please don’t say that,” he said. “Do you want to say that on Hillary’s fireworks barge that she canceled?”
Her message of optimism was intended for the mostly-leftist audience that watches Colbert’s show regularly.
Party leaders always have to walk a thin line between being confident and cautious ahead of votes. If they are too confident, they may turn off the casual voters who feels victory is in hand so there’s no need to participate. If they’re too cautious and sounding as if they’re going to lose, they can turn off the base.
Pelosi’s confidence is harder to read. It doesn’t behoove Democrats to be so confident unless she’s seen internal poll numbers that indicate it’s time to get bold. The only benefit for such a move is personal; being out there boldly declaring victory ahead of one gives her some points among other Democrats in Congress. Perhaps she’s just trying to solidify her position as Speaker of the House if they do take the majority.
Republicans and right-leaning Independents shouldn’t need more incentive to keep a House majority for the President’s agenda, but just in case, here it is. Having Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House will be disastrous for the nation.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
