Trump mocks Democratic leaders Pelosi and Schumer

They love us. They don't get it. And they've been winning a lot.

A dozen or so House Democrats want Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to go after a dispiriting loss in a House election in Georgia.

Others dismissed the idea that Pelosi really played much of a role in the outcome in Georgia, where Democrat Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel by about 5 percentage points.

"Say "no" to Pelosi's "yes" man", blared one ad from the Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC.

"They spent close to 30 million dollars on this kid who forgot to live in the community that he was in", Trump said of Ossoff, who now lives outside of the sixth Congressional district. "Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost".

Why the relentless focus on the Democratic congresswoman from San Francisco?

Now, in the wake of the loss in Georgia and three other House special elections where Democrats failed to pull off upset wins, those divisions are rising back up to the surface. "I thrive on competition, and I welcome the discussion", she said.

That the Pelosi-bashing continued to hurt Democrats - already struggling to get their bearings after Trump's win in November - left some fuming after a morning meeting Wednesday. "And usually they go after the most effective leaders, because they want to take us, diminish the opportunity that we have".

And for some, they point to questions about how their leaders, and Pelosi in particular, have fallen short in crafting an economic message that can counter Trump and yield election victories.

Wednesday, Pelosi stressed that now was the time for Democrats to come together. Some users on both sides of the political spectrum were in agreement that fresh leadership is needed in the party.

"Pelosi's entire leadership team is also coastal, and like her, linger on in their mid-70s".

"Sen. (Harry) Reid was a target, Sen". Now, with Obama and Reid gone, Republicans have occasionally tried latching Democratic senators to Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren, with mixed results. "We know how to run against a Nancy Pelosi-run party".

"It's not helping", O'Rourke said of Pelosi's impact on races, though he added that he was unsure to what extent the negative effect carries to Texas or penetrates locally focused elections.

President Trump stirred the pot, Thursday, tweeting: "I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out".

Moulton is one of the House Democrats who has been most vocal in calling for a new generation of leadership. If elected, I will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker.

"If you have the right candidate, people that fit the district, it doesn't matter", said Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo. But their reluctance left Ossoff running on a milquetoast message, allowing Republicans to drive the narrative that he would be a Pelosi lackey on Capitol Hill.
