The President Is Not Scared of Losing

Column: ‘It’s getting worse.’ The sad part of the Pelosi attack is it doesn’t surprise us. I’d be surprised if she didn’t say that to the president before he called her, and his team were ready to do it.

But let me go out on a limb here and say this: I think there is no way that he would have been in the position he was in and not have been briefed on how to deal with Pelosi. He had a pretty good sense of her. If he didn’t have a sense of her and didn’t watch her, it is not a stretch to say that he would have known what he had to do.

It had to be a conscious choice. I think it was a calculated risk. He went out there and he thought he had a mandate, and maybe he did. He had a mandate to get him to the speaker’s seat, and he certainly thought he would. He thought he would not lose. He was wrong on that. He just got scared. He did not know how to be afraid. He had already been afraid too much when he was in the White House.

I have a theory about the president. I think that he is scared of having no ability to do the things his team wants to do. I don’t think he fears the loss of a majority of the support in the House and the Senate. I think he fears the loss of a majority of the voters in the country. I think he is afraid of losing, and so he is afraid of not getting what he thinks he wants. I don’t think he fears the loss of the president’s ability to govern. Because he’s the president, and he is the one in the White House and he is the one who is in charge. And he is the one who is getting voted in every day. He could get voted out. He could lose. And if he thinks he’s going to have to go out and do it all himself, that’s the way he goes about doing that. That’s the way he’s gone about his job since he’s been back.

But he just doesn’t understand the role and he just doesn
