GOP takes victory lap around Pelosi after passing border wall bill

“Nancy Pelosi learned two things today,” Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) said in a statement Thursday night. “First, it’s not 2009 anymore. Second, hubris is not the same as leadership – you don’t get to march into the Oval Office and dictate your demands without compromise.”
Pelosi clashed with Trump last week in a tense, televised Oval Office meeting, where she bickered with him over whether Republicans could muster the votes to pass a border-wall bill in the House.
“The fact is you do not have the votes in the House,” Pelosi told Trump.
“Nancy, I do,” he responded, to which Pelosi replied, “Well, let’s take the vote and we’ll find out.”

She doesn’t deserve to be House Majority Leader if she hands ammunition to the Republicans and dares them to shoot. Of course they’ll shoot. They hate Democrats more than Russkies. She was born a politician’s daughter yet has learned nothing.
‘Democrats have defended Pelosi, saying that at the time she issued the challenge to Trump last week it was true that Republicans didn’t have the votes. The showdown seemed to persuade many Republicans who opposed the wall to end up voting for the measure in a sign of solidarity.’

After a week of posting pics of Pelosi in a red coat and sunglasses, they are strangely silent over there now.
Who would have guessed that publicly taunting the GOP in the oval office could have this kind of blowback?

Can’t wait to move to Canada!
Or maybe Germany, or Norway.
Pretty much anyplace but here.

it’s different from 2.0 in that you have to use the icon to post a link..
Click on the paper clip icon (to the left of the smilie) It’s “Insert/edit Link” when you hover over it…
Highlight the URL you want to use (“Control C” works for me)
Click in the text body and do a “Control V” and it should link fter you click on “Apply” in the little pop up box.

It’s not really a paper clip icon. It’s a really bad representation of a chain ‘link’.
Good grief, I’ve become an icon nazi…..help!

that, once again, Pelosi and the democrats got schooled by the republicans. But boy, what a strong leader she is! Someone tell this math major that her big donors can’t vote on these bills, at least not directly.

Right after the famous oval office faceoff, the one where Nancy guaranteed the wall would not pass the House, we saw about a million posts about what a baddass Nancy Pelosi is. Now? Not so much, I guess. It’s been pretty quiet in certain quarters.
