After writing my first post of the day today, I never thought that President Trump would actually offer his congratulations to Nancy Pelosi on her regaining the title of Speaker of the House. In what I would certainly call a move towards bipartisanship, he said in a tweet that, “In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by Democrats, If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!”
He even added that he wasn’t being sarcastic with his support for the speaker elect.
Furthermore, President Trump has also said that he wants to be able to make deals with speaker-elect in an attempt to keep moving the country forward.
This was even after Pelosi said in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle in October that “Subpoena power is interesting, to use it or not to use it. It is a great arrow to have in your quiver in terms of negotiating on other subjects.” She goes on to say that she hasn’t forgotten about Trumps tax returns adding that suing for his tax returns would be one of the first things that she did. Pelosi said that this “is one of the first things we’d do — that’s the easiest thing in the world. That’s nothing,”
Does this sound like someone who really and truly wants to work with the other side? Hmmm….
But will she ever meet him half way? Will she ever show the restraint necessary to make a deal with Trump? As I said this morning, I don’t think so. I don’t believe that she has the ability to do so. As with many other democrats suffering from TDS, their hatred of the president is all consuming. Nothing can or will get in the way of them trying to bring down Trump.
However, the funniest comment of the day came when she spoke about the transparency of the future House. After eight years of Obama, no democrat on the face of God’s green earth should be talking about transparency. Here we go:
“In stark contrast to the GOP Congress, a Democratic Congress will be led with transparency and openness. So that the public can see what’s happening and how it affects them and that they can weigh in with the members of Congress and with the President of the United States.”
Wow…Not for nothing, but she has got some big old balls to be throwing that around.
Strap in folks. This is going to be a wild and crazy two years.
As always, if you are offended by this post or just don’t like what I have written…I don’t care.
