As Pelosi gloats, GOP determined to hold Congress after election losses

With Election Day 2017 in the rearview and no major victories for GOP candidates, Republicans are brushing themselves off and shifting focus toward the 2018 midterms – insisting the party is “better positioned” than ever.

But as Barack Obama learned in 2010, the first midterm for a new president can deliver an agenda-stalling power shift on Capitol Hill. President Trump still enjoys majorities in both chambers, and GOP leaders want to keep it that way, vowing to keep the House speaker’s gavel out of Nancy Pelosi’s hands even as she claims the “door is open” to flipping the House.

“We are seeing that voters across this country want to see things get done in Washington, and at the RNC we’re seeing record fundraising and support of President Trump and his agenda,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said on “America’s Newsroom” Wednesday morning.

“So as Republicans, we need to keep working on behalf of the American people and accomplish the things we ran on. … And I think we’re better positioned than we’ve ever been for the midterms.”

    She has so much to gloat about. Under her leadership, democrats lost the House after only 4 years of her expert guidance. They lost more than 1000 seats in the House, Senate, Governor mansions, and state houses. They lost the White House with a “shoe in” candidate. The Supreme Court is now leaning right, or towards the Constitution. The party is a wreck, they are nearly broke and they have no leadership. The only thing that remains is the media to influence the public opinion her way. Yep, she has plenty to gloat about.

    The lingering scandals of Democratic corruption are not helping anything. Trump had better prosecute the usual criminals, Clinton, Obama, Mueller, Comey, Lynch, Holder, etc. if he hopes to keep his credibility. I am a Trump enthusiast, and I know he has done wonders so far. However, letting Sessions hide under his desk instead of prosecuting is extremely damaging at this point. We have had enough of this criminal activity and treason, it has to stop. People must go to jail. Otherwise, there is no law. If Sessions will not function, then Trump MUST replace him and soon!! End Obamacare, pass tax reform!

      Sessions has nothing to do with any of this as AG.

    If Trump and his administration want to keep the “vote” of the people, they better come up with a better tax plan, a better medical plan, a better social security plan, etc that benefits the “legal citizens” not just the rich who are only there to get richer.
