Nancy Pelosi Warns GOP: Dump Trump Movement is a Bad Idea

Nancy Pelosi proves the truth of the old adage “a stopped clock is right twice a day?”

Nancy Pelosi

From The Washington Examiner:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warned Thursday that it wouldn’t be wise for Republicans to broker a deal that crowns another Republican candidate as the party’s presidential nominee if Donald Trump earns the majority of delegates in the upcoming primaries.

“To the Republicans, if they think they are going to upset the verdict of the people in terms of the election, that can really become a very big Pandora’s box,” Pelosi said. “If someone has the majority of the delegates, from the votes of the people, I think you change that to your peril.”

The irony here, of course, is that in the democrat party the “super delegates” are in place specifically to make sure that the elites in the party select the nominee, something they put into place after the 1972 McGovern train wreck. Ms. Pelosi opposes the super delegate thing.

What to make of this statement? Is she right? Is this a trick? Is she trying to discourage the GOP from nominating Trump, the one the dems really fear most, by pretending to think it would be a disaster for the establishment to block the will of the people? Please let me know in the comments below.

  1. The GOP is doing their damnedist to derail Trump with lies and half truths.
    Nancy gets it right for once. The third Resurrection of Willard ” the Mitt” Romney!http://www.newswithviews.com/Nelson/kelleigh281.htm

    • Randy, yes, and as I tweeted today, even Lindsay Graham understands how wrong and politically foolish it would be to deny Donald Trump the nomination if he wins enough delegates. Lindsay liked my tweet so much that he “liked” it on Twitter. Is that good or bad for me?

  2. Beth, you are so right. This woman has the brains of an ant, and as you note, the policies that she and her party foisted on this country, albeit with the enabling of the voters and the lame Establishment GOP, are a train wreck! Put a sock in it, Nancy!
