Be careful what you wish for, MSM . . .
Joe Scarborough has predicted that Nancy Pelosi is “most likely going to be the next Speaker of the House.” Speaking on today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough’s theory was that the Republican leadership will try to push through a tax reform bill without letting rank-and-file House members participate in the process, and that as a result it will fail, as did the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Could Joe’s prediction come true? Sure. It would require House Dems in the 2018 mid-term elections to increase their numbers by about 24 seats. According to Politifact, “in midterms since 1862, the president’s party has averaged losses of about 32 seats in the House.”
So feasible? Yes. But ironically, the best thing the Republicans will have going for them in stopping Nancy Pelosi from becoming Speaker . . . is Nancy Pelosi herself.
