The President called Pelosi's bluff. Pelosi said if the government was opened she would have the State of the Union address, and would compromise on the border wall. Lets see if that happens.

I do NOT know what you mean about "compromise on the border wall" since she was very clear about that issue. The area of compromise can come on the broader and more important issue of BORDER SECURITY.

Are you saying that you will only vote Democrat in 2020 if Nancy compromises?

1. Pelosi has already voted in favor of two border walls.
2. If she is such an expert and knows how to secure the border why hasn’t she done it? And why are there so many illegals in this country? And why are they still coming?
3. Could it be that she really wants open borders?
4. Could it be that she wants the money for high tech border insecurity to flow into Silicon Valley?

Keep this in mind, negotiating in good faith does not equal giving the right everything it wants. I know that's what those on the right think but with an equal branch of government doing their part in keeping the president in check, I expect to hear all the horror stories under the sun of how nancy is the cause of...everything.

On an unrelated note ... Has anyone else noticed that Pelosi seems to be having denture problems?
Like her Poligrip is failing or something.
There's something going in her mouth - lots of weird activity.

She never said the word wall, she said border security. In fact the Dems offered more for border security than Trump asked for, that is a fact. You can forget the Dems offering money for the wall, Trump got smacked good.

Please point out were Pelosi stated they would discuss wall funding, or stop lying !

NO - Pelosi has never endorsed open borders and has a long history of voting to control our borders.

This entire issue is about how to properly achieve the best in border security. It is NOT limited to an idea borne out of racist appeals to xenophobes at campaign rallies and was never intended to be an actual serious policy proposal.

To pretend otherwise is simply nonsense.

And, I would simply add, that most people here illegally, aren't crossing the border illegally, and most who are, are going, not coming here.

Facts are hard for some people.

By the end of 21 days we will see if Pelosi wants to compromise and give money for the border wall or is willing to create more Angel moms. Does she think criminal invaders are more important than the safety of the American people.

She was not willing to compromise for the good of America before the Shut Down, she was not willing to compromise for the good of America during the Shut Down, and I doubt she will be willing to compromise for the good of America over the next three weeks.

What are Republicans willing to compromise on to get money for increased physical security on the southern border? Is a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients on the table?

Hopefully that is not the case, but if true, the blood of all the Americans killed by criminal invaders will be on her hands.

Spoiler Alert: Pelosi is a lying liar who lies.:lol:

Pelosi will not grant Trump the SOTU, saying that he can't until the threat of a shutdown is gone.
She will not get amnesty. She will not agree to fund border structures.

You've nailed it. That border security $$ ain't going to the steel workers in the Rust Belt who support Trump. Not if Pelosi has her way.

Nancy said no border wall. She said they would talk border security. Listening to the actual words is important.

OMG, yes! I think she's got some sort of neurological spasms going on, with facial spasms and lots of sucking on her teeth. She displays dysarthria when speaking (and it's getting worse) and rigid movements, as you can see with her gesticulations.
