Are the moderates in the Democratic Party trying to fight back and wrest the direction away from the new far leftists?
Sure sounds like it.
First, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had disappointed the rabid left by saying that she didn’t think pursuing impeachment against President Donald Trump made any sense. She realizes it wouldn’t achieve its end and it would likely kill them in the election. But that infuriated the left.
Now, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is fighting back too.
Hoyer has been a relative voice of moderation from the Democrats.
He also was in no mood to to try impeachment.
And he had a message not only for the media, but for the far left freshmen as well.
“We’ve got 62 new (Democratic) members,” he told the media. “Not three.”
He and the other moderates better get the party in hand.
Or this is going to cost them 2020. And they know it.
