Nancy Pelosi Is Giving Joe Biden A Leg Up Before Iowa

The Daily Caller
Peter Hasson, Senior Reporter
January 10, 2020

Excerpt:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that she would be sending articles of impeachment over to the Senate next week.

Pelosi’s announcement came more than three weeks after the House formally voted to impeach President Donald Trump.

Pelosi is sending over the articles of impeachment without securing any of the concessions she demanded from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — concessions she insisted were a prerequisite for sending the articles.

But her delay in starting the impeachment process will have accomplished one thing: taking Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts off the presidential campaign trail right before the Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses.

Regardless of whether or not it was Pelosi’s intention, her otherwise-fruitless delay in sending the articles to the Senate will have sidelined the two most anti-establishment Democratic candidates at a crucial point in the primary.

Sanders is currently leading the field in both Iowa and New Hampshire, while Warren is hovering around the 15% threshold for receiving delegates in both states, according to RealClearPolitics’ polling averages.

Taking both senators off the campaign trail would give an advantage to former Vice President Joe Biden and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, both of whom are in contention to win Iowa and New Hampshire, and neither of whom are as far to the left as Sanders and Warren.

“Of course it matters,” Warren told Politico of being stuck in Washington, D.C., while other candidates are campaigning. “We just did a 3½-hour selfie line. Don’t tell me it doesn’t matter to do face to face.”

That title immediately made me think of a dog peeing on a tree. Not too far from the truth seeing how she's raining on the Warren and Sanders parades.

Nationally, according to RCP, Sanders is at 20.3 and Warren is at 14.8 amongst Dems for a combined 35.1%. By so blatantly putting her thumb on the scale to favor Biden, Pelosi is essentially telling 1/3 of her party to go Eff themselves, only the establishment choices matters. How many will remember this when it comes time to decide whether or not to even bother voting in November? My guess is, more than a few.

NASA is going to need to build a better space telescope in order to find the planet on which this would be considered a smart political move.

I would have said "microscope" and "molecule", but I agree with your point.

Yup, her timing is deliberate.

Bernie bro’s are going to be the most pissed. They will believe this is the second time that Bernie was robbed of the nomination.

With this move, Biden just won the nomination, but lost the election.


Thanks, Nancy!!!


As a bonus, I’d love to see her lose the gavel with the GOP taking back the house. Then her cluster fun park of a plan would have been a resounding success. 😉
