Nancy Pelosi is going to hate how this close ally publicly humiliated her
Nancy Pelosi settled on a strategy for how Democrats will keep power in 2022.
But Pelosi’s plan just blew up in her face.
And Nancy Pelosi is going to hate how this close ally publicly humiliated her.
Nancy Pelosi organized the January 6 Select Committee for two reasons.
The first was to serve as a third impeachment for Donald Trump.
Pelosi’s goal in setting up the Committee was for it to produce a recommendation for criminal charges against Donald Trump to block him from running for President again in 2024.
The other goal of the Committee was to produce a report heading into the fall that Democrats could use to smear Republicans as the Party of sedition in hopes of scaring swing voters into keeping Democrats in charge of Congress.
That goal collapsed.
Famed Democrat Party strategist James Carville – who helped guide Bill Clinton to victory in 1992 – said voters won’t care about the January 6 Committee report because it has nothing to do with everyday life.
“We have to wait and see when the committee comes out. I suspect their findings will be intriguing and devastating. But people are going to know by then. People want an election about their lives. They don’t want an election about a former President. They don’t want an election about any of this. If you show them substantial policies that improve people’s lives and you run on that like we did in 2018, you will be successful,” Carville told CNN.
Carville added that Democrats were foolish to put all their eggs in the basket of partisan committees or prosecutors trying to arrest Trump because voters care about what Democrats will do for them.
“You know I don’t know what is going to happen with Donald Trump with the 1/6 Committee, the Manhattan DA, the Fulton County DA, the archives, I have no idea. But what you can do is do the best you can to talk about how you improved American lives and win elections,” Carville concluded.
But Democrats come up empty on that front.
A new CNN poll found 56 percent of Americans cannot name one thing Joe Biden has done that they approve of.
The only card left for Democrats to play is January 6.
And one of the Party’s chief strategists is telling them it is a loser.
