Does everyone remember in 2006 when Nancy Pelosi stated that her Congress would be the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.” She described the vote as a mandate “to restore stability and bipartisanship” in Washington and for “a new direction” in the war in Iraq.” “The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead ,” Pelosi said.
Her disreputible, lying, cheating tactics in the past few years have demonstrated that Pelosi is not only a prevaricating, double-dealing dullard, she is a political hack.
Today, she also demonstrated that she’s not even a good liar. Under strong attack from Republicans, accused the CIA and Bush administration of misleading her about waterboarding detainees in the war on terror and sharply rebutted claims she was complicit in the method’s use.” To the contrary … we were told explicitly that waterboarding was not being used,” she told reporters, referring to a formal CIA briefing she received in the fall of 2002. Pelosi said she subsequently learned that other lawmakers were told several months later by the CIA about the .
“I wasn’t briefed, I was informed that somebody else had been briefed about it,” she said. (AP, Yahoo News) HERE
She’s not nearly as good as either of the Clintons. “I wasn’t briefed” and I wasn’t informed” is not nearly as good as Bill Clinton’s “It depends on what the meaning of the words ‘is’ is.” ?”
After claiming that the CIA lied about methods used during interrogation, I wondered what Geroge Tenant might have to say.
How is it that Nancy was misled by someone who she claimed was stupid? Where does that leave Nancy? Stupendously incompetent or a second-rate Liar or both?Since Hillary Clinton used the same excuse of being “misled” by President Bush on the Weapons of Mass Destruction issue, it appears that George Bush was smarter that any Democrat in congress.
Nancy Pelosi has become a giant liability to the Democrats. Bets are on as to how long Obama will allow her to stay. Will he send her on another world tour? Will he send her packing? Frankly, I hope she is allowed to stay. She provides so much entertainment while destroying our country.
Thank goodness that Democrats don’t last long in the White House – without completely discrediting themselves, but only after causing irreparable damage.
