Democrat Slanders GOP

Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) stated that the Republican attack on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was due to the fact that they were “bankrupt on ideas.”

Partial transcript as follows:

WALLACE: Is Nancy Pelosi a liability for democrats in this campaign?

CROWLEY: I think it was more reflective of the fact that Republicans are bankrupt on ideas. They don’t have anything else to offer except to go after Nancy Pelosi to win elections. If they think that’s a winning  strategy they are completely mistaken and wrong. It’s not a winning strategy.

WALLACE: Forgive me, but Connor Lamb apparently thought it was an issue because he jumped on Nancy Pelosi.

CROWLEY: He won because he ran a local election. He talked about that the cuts that the Republicans were attempting to make into privatize Social Security. He talked about what affect the federal government has on local politics, on people’s lives and that’s why he won that election, not because of Nancy Pelosi.

WALLACE: If Democrats win the House in November, will you run either to replace Nancy Pelosi if she steps down or against her if she doesn’t?

CROWLEY: On the first portion of that I would wait and see just what happened in terms of Nancy Pelosi deciding not to run. But if Nancy Pelosi stays I don’t see a scenario by which I would challenge her for that position.

WALLACE: Do you want to be speaker?

CROWLEY: Look I’m focused right now on winning back the House of Representatives. To be in the majority, the chair of the Democratic caucus in the majority in doing that job right now, I want to be the best chair of the Democratic caucus like possibly can be. Help my colleagues get reelected. Help when back seats for the House Democratic Caucus. That’s my focus and goal. It’s the focus and goal of the entire democratic leadership. We want to win back the House. If that’s goal one and the only goal right now.

    The DNC ( Democratic New Communist ) party is totally bankrupt on brains. They are so full of hate and poison they rather see the United States fall instead of working with and helping President Trump. You need to burn in Hell.

    • Jerry Rega

      yeah, that’ll surely bring the parties together.

    • Jerry Rega

      sounds like you’re the one full of hate.

  • tredmon

    Really only a FOOL fro NY would make a statement like that. She brought this on herself with stupidity.

  • Gerry Costa

    Another NY demoSCUM who has no clue. He is a member of the party who have had nothing to add to this country except illegal immigrants, slimeball radical muslims and total corruption for many years.

  • John Flynn

    He never did answer Wallace’s initial question about Pelosi being a possible liability on the Dems; Well, Crowley, what’s your answer….

  • Ron C

    Yeah…Slandering folks is all in a days work for the democrat party…??? A real news story would be if a democrat was ever to tell the truth on anything…right?

  • Rodney

    Typical DNC strategy, when devoid of ideas, blame and tear down the opposition, projecting your failures onto your opposition.

  • Jerry Rega

    You call that “slander”? Crowley’c comments were tame compared to some of the things said by Republicans, especially the fat-head in the oval office.

    • Keep drinking the Kool Aid slick

      • Jerry Rega

        The Kool Aid’s gonna taste real good when more of Trump’s people get indicted.

        • Not a chance slick not one has anything to do with Russian Collusion, you might want to seek some mental health counseling.

        • American Veteran

          Anyone can be indicted when you use FAKE evidence. Dumb ass.

    • American Veteran

      The only ” fat-head in the oval office ” is you sitting on the toilet.

  • The Demorats are the ones void of any thing constructive, Pelosi is a moron and even her own party knows it.

  • Santiago Tello

    This from a crummy 2bit communist whose entire narrative for the past year has been russian collusion and russians hiding behind every rock. The communists are morally and ideaologically bankrupt.

    Joe Crowley Don’t give us your tough talking New York BS. All Crowley does is blab an empty vessel. Boss Tweed is gone Democrat’s in NY are mostly crooks while Nassau county is cleaning out Republican crooks. So Joe get clicking on Albany with a stink as bad as NYC. Get taxes down by operating intelligently and honestly thus you won’t have to overtax New York’s tax payers for all your errors. Same reason NJ, and Ca. are high Taxed. Notice all are Democrat controlled by liberal Democrats. Joe Shhhhhhhhhhh

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    Sorry Joe Crowley, but it is the Demonrats that are devoid of new ideas.
    All they care about is illegals and their votes. Other than that, they have no
    new ideas. All the can do is try to be “lifers” and collect their ill-gotten gains.
    During the State of the Union address, they in fact, stood for nothing!!! They
    are all un-American and wish to destroy our nation. ALL suffer from dementia, and
    are totally insane, yet they want all the power? NOT a good idea!!!

  • W. Coyote

    “Slanders”!!! Oh my God. Republicans would never do any similar thing. They always take the high road.

  • Ronald Hagler

    I find that interesting seeing as how the Democrats have spent 18 months and millions of tax payer dollars to find that illusive Unicorn (referred to as the Trump/Russian collusion) to disguise the fact that the Democrats have no platform, no plans for the betterment of this nation, nor any promise of changing their agenda: whatever it is!

  • gideonrockwell

    Crowley is just sucking up to Old Crazy Eyes because if by chance the Dems gain the House in the Mid Terms he is hoping for a leadership position. Pelosi does a great job of showing her instability on her own, she just has to open her mouth, she needs no help.

  • Gy/Sgt. Lew Souder

    Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should be the ones to RETIRE not Paul Ryan… They – the rest of the Democrats and Soros are not for rebuilding America.- they want to tear it down like Obama tried to do..

  • Albedamned!

    Another loser Democrat whose not done one thing for his constituents.

  • Maggietish

    Obviously Crowley has major mental issues just like Pelosi. He’s another example of a Democrat it’s been in office way too long and done little if nothing for the United States and the American people. Pelosi is one of the worst things that has happened to the United States and for her to continue in office, let alone become majority leader of the House again,would be catastrophic to the United States and the American people. Is Crowley living under a rock or is he just sucking up to Pelosi in case she becomes House Leader again, God forbid. He’s just another Democrat who continues to sell out and betray the United States and we the people.
