    Nancy Pelosi was just awarded the 2019 Kennedy Profiles in Courage award. Officially, she was honored in recognition of her efforts to pass the Affordable Care Act and restore Democrats’ majority in the US House of Representatives during the 2018 elections, officials said Sunday. Both of those accomplishments are EXTREMELY important.

    She will need a lot more "courage" right now; Trump and Barr laugh at her all the way; nothing gets done, let alone the things the Dem's want done. It needs much more than "courage" to get rid of the "mafia mob"

    Ms. Pelosi recently said that she would prefer that Trump be imprisoned rather than impeached. The reality is that imprisonment is just not going to be in the cards, and neither is impeachment. The only way that Trump could be impeached is if (1) he actually gets re-elected (don't hold your breath) and (2) the Democrats control both Houses of Congress.

    The article below explains why it is unlikely that Trump will go to jail:

    Overall she seems timid. We could sure use more than a snarky line once a week. This link is not directly about her but .....

    TJ:

    Interesting article.

    I'm a bit ambivalent about term limits. If the limits mentioned in the article were already in place, neither Mitch McConnell or Louie Gohmert would still be in Congress, which would be a very good thing. On the other hand, neither Nancy Pelosi or John McCain would have lasted as long as they did either.

    It is a pity that Nancy can't do anything related to the border as well the Hitler like "razzia"s in our cities. As well the Iranian "provocations" by the US.

    She has to do something fast (if she can?), because these things are unacceptable in any "normal"society.

    She has identified the opponent. Young and massively more popular Democrats. We are not being led well by Nancy. She's going to continue to disappoint.

    She is experiencing problems with the far left fringe just as former speaker John Boehner experienced difficulties with the far right fringe. Both far left and far right are loonies.

    Sorry, but Pelosi still lives in the "olden" days and is not used to "bully's". There is an old Dutch saying: Zachte heelmeesters maken alleen nog grotere wonden. Translated: " Soft approach "doctors" make the wounds only worse.

    She has to learn that it does not work any longer in these times where an lying "mob boss" reigns.

    The house speakership is without a doubt one tough job. I liken Pelosi's position to that of the former house speaker Boehner. Boehner was trying to keep republicans on one path, then he had a handful of republican hardliner teabaggers pulling in an opposite direction. The situation is similar for Pelosi because while maybe most democrats see things her way, conventional-middle of the road, part of the house democrats are trying to pull to the hard left, and she, as speaker is trying to keep things on an even keel and trying to keep people in a pragmatic and logical path.

    In some polls, whomever believes in them, people say that democrats shouldn't try to impeach Trump because there are bigger issues to pursue for a democratic platform. Issues like healthcare, higher wages, immigration, infrastructure and how to get voters to agree on how to get this stuff done. I'm not saying impeaching Trump would be a bad thing, but there's other issues we need to put out in front of that. From my POV, AOC isn't helping with her lack of cohesion and being critical (infighting) with other democrats.

    The point is as "history" has learned us, that if you are not "uniform" you loose; it s just like any "soccer team". Right now the Dem's are divided. Pelosi thinks, that Trump is going to "hang" himself by making huge mistakes. I doubt that, because the "mob" itself is prepared for such. Sorry to say in this society, because of the lack of solid up to date laws, manipulated by a zillion lawyers, things will go quickly out of hand. This is an "lawyer country" which therefore is unpredictable in what direction it will go. But due to that, as well the refusal to look at the total picture of the shape this country in which it is now; that picture does not look good at all.
