Pelosi to Democrats: Skip the Convention This Year …(Run For Your Lives!)
Pelosi told fellow Democrats to skip the DNC Convention this year.
Run for your lives!
Stay home and campaign instead.
The Politico reported:
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi says that Democratic members should stay home and campaign in their districts rather than go to the party’s national convention in North Carolina.
“I’m not encouraging anyone to go to the convention, having nothing to do with anything except I think they should stay home, campaign in their districts, use their financial and political resources to help them win their election,” Pelosi said in an exclusive interview for POLITICO Live’s On Congress, a new weekly show to be streamed live on POLITICO’s website and broadcast on NewsChannel 8 on Wednesdays.
The California Democrat suggested that since Barack Obama is an incumbent, there is less of a need for Democrats to attend the convention.
“We nominated a president last time. We have an incumbent President of the United States. We’re very proud of him. There certainly will be enough people there to express that pride, but I’m not encouraging members to go to the convention no matter what the situation was, because they can be home. It’s campaign time. It’s the first week in September,” she said.
Uh-huh. Keep telling yourself that, Nancy.
Next, they’ll be jumping from buildings.
