Pelosi Shows Level of Dems’ Desperation: ‘Civilization As We Know It’ Is At ‘Risk in This Election’

In an interview published on Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) revealed the depths of her fear that President Donald Trump’s party would maintain its majority in Congress.

When Rolling Stone asked Pelosi about the 2018 midterms, she emphasized that the Democrats had to “win.” “Civilization as we know it today is at risk in this election,” she said.

Pelosi predicted that Democrats would win the midterms if held today but she indicated a wariness about the path to November.

“You have to be aware of the undercurrents. Because you don’t know what can come along – and what comes along eclipses what you’re doing,” she said.

Pelosi also quashed the possibility of pushing impeachment before the election. “I think it’s a gift to the Republicans,” she said when asked about the topic.

She added that the election could not be about impeachment. “I don’t think it’s in the interest of America’s working families to focus on that, unless we have more to go on, which we don’t at this time,” she said.

Pelosi was asked specifically about liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, who started a public movement advocating Trump’s impeachment.

I wish he would spend the money pointing out the horror show that the tax bill is,” Pelosi said of her “friend” and “former neighbor” Steyer.

Pelosi Defends Her Leadership: “I’m a Legislative Virtuoso”
Pelosi’s interview came as she faced pressure to resign as well as speculation that she hurt the party’s electoral chances.

Last month, for example, The New York Times editorial board lamented how both Pelosi and her deputies “clung to power at the expense of future leaders.”

“At this point, the caucus leadership has gone from stale to downright ossified,” the Times said.

But for Pelosi, she indicated that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s loss, as well as Trump’s attacks on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), prompted her to stay.

“It’s not about wanting to be there. It’s just a question of, ‘Who can fight this man who’s in the White House? Who really knows the territory?’” she said.

“None of us is indispensable,” she added, “but some of us have more experience and confidence in how to get the job done.”

Describing herself as a “legislative virtuoso,” Pelosi said she loved legislating. “I’m really good at what I do,” she said.

    The American people do not want to repeat the way it is. We want Trump to get things done and he needs the House and Senate to do that. I just hope those who are trying to stop our President from getting things done are gone in November.

    The Constitution does not mention the political views or a political party of the rulers. It just wants them to work together. There have been many times in the past that both the House, Senate and Supreme Court had the same Conservative beliefs and the same Liberal ones as well. So this is nothing new.

    No Nancy, Civilizaion as we know it was at risk in 2016, with Hillary, hopefully the electorate will finish the job this November, and send a message to the “People’s Republic of California” that the rest of the country doesn’t see it your way.

    I am so glad we have a President who loves our country and we the people. We could do fine without Pelosi, Waters. Schummer and others who dont care about our country. I just wish people would stop marching and giving people a hard time. You put Trump down for trying to protect children coming here but then you scream and holler because we want a right for life for babies but all you people want is the right to murder them if you decide you dont want your babies.
    You are a disgrace and God is watching us. Better wake up America!!!!
