Is this kinda like when the skinny kid won't take on the bully because he "won't sink to the bully's level?" but then the bully keeps beating people up?

It was exactly the right statement for her to make because it didn't in any way take future action off the table. It's a perfect troll against an opponent she knows to be a thin-skinned narcissist, who undoubtedly spent several raging hours yesterday trying to figure out how to respond without it seeming like he does in fact deserve to be impeached. Trump only knows how to respond when the response is hitting back, and there's no real way to do that here. The net effect is to unbalance him even more than he already is, which is a win. The half cocked idiots who want to go charging headlong into the breach without any real ammunition need to sit back and learn a little from her.

I find it very hard to believe that someone who's been in politics for decades may be thinking more strategically than the average internet commentator.

This is why the democrats are irrelevant:  they are actually letting Trump get away with a litany if crimes and power grabs, while suffering a constant barrage of insults.

I've saud this before, but someone please help Pelosi, because she is acting like a battered spouse.   'It's nothing, really.'   'We have to stay together for the sake of our 250 million children.'

It's also smart because impeachment talk is a stupid waste of energy while the Senate is gauranteed not to convict.

More like the bully keeps punching himself, and his friends, in the face.

Nancy Pelosi is a republican...
 
2019-03-12 09:02:18 AM  
What I heard is:  "We know the dirtbag Republicans in the Senate have enough cover to protect Dolt45 so rather than starting a fight we will lose I am just going to insult him. I reserve the right to change my mind the moment I think I can win".

Good for her. Trying and failing would only make him look stronger. Wait for the Mueller report at least.

I'll admit that I was half cocked at first.  But after careful reflection, I'm now either half or full cocked...whichever version is accepting that she's right and I'm wrong.

Totally agree. Well said.

It's OK Trump will just not get reelected and then she can go back to making sure the new Democratic president doesn't accomplish anything progressive

She should've played it closer to the vest. Now she's got half her base pissed off because she looks craven and weak. shiat like this is what makes third-party runs look viable.

Saving ammunition for 2020.  Any time the Orange-Skinned Freak tries to gain the initiative or gets traction on the narrative, drop another bomb on him.  He'll be on the defensive for the duration.
 
2019-03-12 09:06:28 AM  
She is correct.  As nice as it would be to nail that asshole Trump to the wall, let's wait until it reaches Nixon proportions.

Plus Trump is a farking crybaby.

Worse than a waste of energy - a failed impeachment would make any future impeachment more difficult even with a senate that might realistically convict and would just embolden Trump and his supporters.

So she just said played her 4th level queen to the eplison quadrant level 9. No way Trump can counter that without moving his little car past Go/level 7 Alpha. He has been forced to sell his quantum hotel on Crabapple Alley. Pelosi chutes AND ladders!

Right, yes, sure, just like it was going to drop last friday.

Mueller's sealed indictments aren't going to go away.  The SDNY isn't going away.  The NY AG isn't going to go away.  Trump will not be president forever. After 46 is sworn in, the US Marshalls will pick up Trump on his way to the airport.

The best dishes take a long time to cook.  Patience, Grasshopper.

seriously though, I would KILL to play a full game of Monopoly against Trump. Hell, Monopoly Jr.

Maybe she's waiting for SDNY to just indict the asshole?  They seem to be willing to do that.

And, in the meantime, more people will suffer during this game of ego brinksmanship. There's plenty of ammo - the problem is that the GOP is refusing to pull the trigger. Pelosi's doing the right thing, about 18 months too late, and so the Trump administration is going to do an incredible amount of harm to this country on the way out because it's not just about him - it's about all the little bigots, fascists, and assholes pulling Trump's strings, not to mention the foreign manipulation.

If the idea here is to wait until the 2020 election, it may even be too late to undo the worst excesses. As it is, it'll take years, maybe longer, to undo the damage the Trump administration has done to America's reputation abroad.

There's an old joke about a dumb person skydiving for the first time, in which he refuses to open the chute on the command of his trainer - just before he hits the ground, the trainer screams one last time, to a reply of "Why? I can jump from here!" That's what I fear is going to happen - to guarantee a slam-dunk political win in 2020, Pelosi's going to let the Trump administration commit a ridiculous amount of harm, but that win's going to be Pyrrhic if there's little left of America's foreign policy and domestic capability over which to govern. She's going to wait until she can just jump from here, and end up splattering America all over the global landscape.

Look we can either impeach Trump and have a party ran by people who have Trump's beliefs, but better mouth control, or we continue the investigation and round up all the crooked crooks who surround Trump and wreck the GOP for decades..

So when are the mass arrests of Obama, Hillary and 6,000 Democrats happening as predicted by "Q"?  Is that this month or next month?
 
2019-03-12 09:15:34 AM  
I am tempted to think Trump would tweet "I am TOO important enough to impeach!" but I think he will go with "Nancy Pelosi just admitted that the Russia Investigation is FAKE NEWS! NO COLLUSION! DEMOCRATS ARE MURDERING NEWBORNS! THE WALL IS ALMOST FINISHED AND CAME IN UNDER BUDGET!"

Except the bully has a gang to protect him, led by his turtle-faced Chief toadie, which all but guarantees the skinny kid goes down in defeat, which in turn emboldens the bully and his supporters, giving him a good chance to remain the school bully for another four years.
