Pelosi Still knows how to Count

There are a lot of things you can say about Nancy Pelosi, but there are two things about her that remain solid.

She knows how to count nationally.

and as long as those impeachment numbers are below water she isn’t going to risk her majority and give the GOP a 2nd chance to play with all three houses.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still isn’t ready to launch impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

Pelosi told House Democrats on a conference call Friday, “The public isn’t there on impeachment.”

She told them the case needs to be “as strong” as possible.

“If and when we act, people will know he gave us no choice,” Pelosi said, according to an aide granted anonymity to discuss the private call.

Of course the closer you get to an election the less viable impeachment is because you’re basically taking the vote out of the people hands. Pelosi isn’t going to pull the trigger on this until or unless it reaches the point where the party is more likely rather than less likely to lose in 2020 over it.

and the 2nd thing, she knows how to count locally

If there is anything that you would think could generate a liberal revolt in very very liberal San Francisco and generate a primary challenger a “No!” on impeachment would be it, and I suspect if she thought there was one chance in twenty that it would cost her that seat, she might go for it and let the chips fall where they may.

But she just doesn’t know how to count nationally, she know how to count locally and so she is able to stand up to her caucus without fear.

Pelosi’s willingness to stand shows just how empty the deep left’s threats are, it’s a lesson worth learning on the right.
