Pelosi: We only have com­mu­ni­ca­tion woes

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

House Mi­nor­ity Leader Nancy Pelosi said Mon­day that Democrats’ prob­lem isn’t one of ide­ol­ogy, but rather their in­ef­fec­tive­ness in get­ting the party’s mes­sage across.

“It’s not about our agenda, it isn’t even about our mes­sage. it’s about our com­mu­ni­ca­tion of it,” Mrs. Pelosi said on CBS News.

Mrs. Pelosi pushed back against claims that she should step down, say­ing she’s “a mas­ter leg­is­la­tor” and that those call­ing for her res­ig­na­tion have been against her for a long time.

“This is such a small item,” Mrs. Pelosi said of the re­cent back­lash against her. “Right now, our fight is the Af­ford­able Care Act. I’ve al­ways had trou­ble in the cau­cus from the start.”

She did say that de­spite the losses in the spe­cial elec­tions, which Democrats have put at her feet, the party made strides in sup­port where they nor­mally wouldn’t have been com­pet­i­tive.

“Peo­ple in those states are very happy be­cause we’ve pushed the Repub­li­cans back,” Mrs. Pelosi said.
