Zuckerman: Pelosi is Destined for Political Oblivion

ZUCKERMAN: I think Nancy Pelosi has seen her best days and I think she’s going to decline steadily over the next four years. 

Mort Zuckerman sounded like another reliable, conservative voice on the McLaughlin Group this past week (1-2-2015).

He derided climate change as overrated, and hyped up the energy boom which is strengthening local businesses while hindering belligerent petro kleptocracies around the world.

One of his best remarks, however, was about House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who within four years (and leading one of the largest Democratic delegations in a decade), lost the mandate, then the majority following the same damaging, illiberal, regressive policy agenda of President Barack Obama.

Working with the most liberal elements in her caucus, Pelosi has managed to diminish the Democratic Party's influence in Washington for the next two years, perhaps the next decade.

Later, Zuckerman claimed that she displayed the best political theater, most likely because she put on a straight face and claimed to her colleagues and the country that her party's caucus would withstand the 2014 drubbing, and even gain seats.

Did not happen. Her spin and her shame more than destine her for political oblivion.

National Review columnist Michael Barone recounted the political shenanigans of Pelosi and her ultra-liberal predecessors, which made House Democrats more liberal, but also much smaller.

Pelosi succeeded so well, she may soon be out of a job.
