Pelosi Asks Reporters To Be ‘Messengers’ For Flailing House Dems

Posted By Chuck Ross On 11:04 PM 07/31/2014 In | No Comments

Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi suggested Thursday that the media needed to carry water for her party in order to help their message resonate with voters.

Pelosi’s remarks came at a press briefing in response to a reporter who asked why House Democrats’ message that Republicans are “anti-government” has failed to gain traction with the electorate.

“So, you make this case about the skepticism that people have of this anti-government premise here. You talk about, you know, they’re riding this impeachment horse, and lawsuit horse, and all these things they are doing in the election,” began the reporter’s line of questioning.

“Why, for every political analysis that we see, and including top people in your party, don’t believe that the Democrats have a message that can get the House of Representatives back. What government shutdown – why are these things not resonating with the electorate and won’t resonate this fall?”

In response, Pelosi called on reporters to help the Democrats’ cause.

“Well, first of all, we need you to be messengers about what is actually going on here,” she said.

“But apart from that, we have come forth our middle-class jump start. Over the month of August, we go forward with how the jump start talks about bringing jobs home. The Republicans have tax breaks to send jobs overseas. Democrats wants tax breaks to keep jobs here at home.”

Pelosi’s “Middle Class Jump Start” is a “100-day action plan to put the middle class first,” according to her House website.
