Dem: House GOP is "80 percent male, 100 percent white"

The National Republican Congressional Committee is urging Gen. Stanley McCrystal to put House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "in her place" for weighing in on Afghanistan -- prompting one female Pelosi ally to blast the House GOP as "80 percent male," "100 percent white" -- and completely out of touch.

On Monday night, Pelosi told Charlie Rose "should go up the line of command" instead of publicly opining on strategy -- prompting a swift, sneering reaction from the GOP committee.

Mocking the first female speaker as "General Pelosi," an NRCC spokesman wrote, "If Nancy Pelosi’s failed economic policies are any indicator of the effect she may have on Afghanistan, taxpayers can only hope McCrystal is able to put her in her place."

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who is close to Pelosi, could barely contain her anger.

"I think the place for a woman is at the top of the House of Representatives," said Wasserman Schultz.

"It's evidence they long for the days when a woman's place was in the kitchen. Now a woman is third in line for the presidency... But it's not surprising, coming from a party that's 80 percent male and 100 percent white," she added, referring to the composition of the House GOP conference.

NRCC Spokesman Ken Spain was unrepentant, telling POLITICO that Pelosi is "playing out of her league," and questioned the reluctance of Democrats to call for McCrystal to testify in a hearing on the war.

Spain: "Spare us the lectures and mock-outrage. The Speaker of the House is taking on a highly decorated general who has outlined a strategy in Afghanistan that she once claimed to advocate... [S]he’s playing out of her league and she knows it.”

I believe the purpose of this dispute is find ways to force nancy peelousi back into the limelight. Any day that nancy’s picture makes newspapers and TV is a win for republicans. Getting nancy involved in approving Generals is a special sort of narrative that promises all sorts of benefits to her opposition. Lets hope this special flower blooms large.

Errrr... Deb, honey... seems you wanted Sarah Palin back in the kitchen!

"[Palin] she doesn't know anything and isn't ready to be vice president."

It takes a bigot to insinuate the GOP is sexist on this issue. Pelosi is an idiot...male or female form, she would still be a complete military idiot. That's why she needs to be put “in her place”. Her total military incompetency and her statement toward the General.

Statement: "Dem: House GOP is "80 percent male, 100 percent white"

Response: Ok. wonder if after 2010 the ratio is 100% and 100% of the entire house?

Our government functioned a lot better when it was 80% male and 100% white.

If only the US followed the same pattern! The Constitution would still be in effect, the streets would be safe and there would not be enough dizzy female voters to put a Hussein in the White House!

Pelosi and her fellow travelers do everything in their power to make sure that no blacks ever get elected as Republicans in House, then they complain that there aren’t any black Republicans in the House.

Funny thing is, that old fruit bat Nancy thought the President should listen to his generals back when we had a different president:

In 2007, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said to CNN’s Larry King, “Don’t take it from me. Just listen to the generals. General after general after general has said that this course of action is not going to bring our troops home soon.”

Liberals have worked tirelessly to make sure the races are separate in mind and ideology. Diversity equals socialism and all minorities are fighting to get their “pie of the pie from whitey.”

Whites are culturally and socially geared toward constitutional freedom, independence, education, work and industry.

Liberals have divided the races with socialist ideology and racism’s scapegoating and hate. That is “diversity.”
