Maxine Waters is done with 'nice guy politics'
The hill ^ | July 3, 2018

From the perspective of some House Democrats, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has the right message. She’s just not always the best messenger.

The Los Angeles lawmaker’s early calls for President Trump’s impeachment and viral showdowns with administration officials have endeared Waters to the party’s young, liberal base. And those stances have also garnered the respect of many House Democrats, who admire how Waters, 79, sticks to her political convictions.

"She is up-to-date, she is smart, she is authentic and she is not scared to express herself,” Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) told The Hill, adding that her constituents in Milwaukee often ask her if she knows Waters. "She is transformative in terms of appealing to different generations of people.”

Yet her most recent remarks -- encouraging public confrontation with Cabinet members -- rankled some of those colleagues and raised concerns about how Waters would handle increased authority if Democrats regain control of the House in November.

House and Senate minority leaders Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) condemned her comments, while other Democrats distanced themselves from her.

She’s was done with “nice guy” long ago, and has moved on to “shrill, stupid woman”

Maxine Waters is done with 'nice guy politics'

So that was you being nice up until now? Fascinating.

Okay, Ms Waters. We hear you, and we understand. You are going to exhort your crowds to become even more outraged and violent. Please keep in mind, though... our crowds do not have to continue to sit still and take it politely. Just a little FYI. You might want to think twice before REALLY pushing that agenda.

Some of the leaders of the Democrat Party have been trying to get her to keep quiet, not because they disagree with her, but because they see their poll numbers go down every time Maxine Waters shoots off her big mouth. I think this “death threat” scenario is something concocted by the Democrats to get Waters to lay low for a few weeks, while still allowing her to play the victim.

Crazy Maxine Waters, said by some to be one of the most corrupt people in politics, is rapidly becoming, together with Nancy Pelosi, the FACE of the Democrat Party. Her ranting and raving, even referring to herself as a wounded animal, will make people flee the Democrats!
