US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi (R) poses with her Japanese counterpart Yohei Kono (L) before a meeting of parliament speakers from the Group of Eight major industrial nations in Hiroshima, western Japan. Pelosi earlier in the day laid flowers at the memorial to the Hiroshima atomic bombing, becoming the highest-ranking sitting US official to pay respects at the site.


US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi lays a bouquet at the altar for atomic bomb victims in Hiroshima. Pelosi is the highest-ranking sitting US official to pay respects at the site.


Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi gavels in the last day of of the Democratic National Convention at the Invesco Field in Denver, Colorado, on August 28, 2008.

Looks like she’s really enjoying her vacation. A lot of us aren’t able to. Something to do with high gas prices. Oh well, as long as SHE’S not footing the bill, it’s ok with her.

Oh isn’t that touching?

And you can bet the rent that when Pearl Harbor Day comes around this December, that socialist twat won’t be seen anywhere near Hawaii, nor anywhere near a remembrance ceremony for our honored dead who lost their lives on December 7, 1941.

The only bomb bigger than the one dropped on Hiroshima in WWII, drops in on Hiroshima in 2008.

Failed Speaker, fails at diplomacy.

No way she has a Japanese Counterpart!

She just spit in the face of our brave soldiers who were in the Bataan Death March and those held as POWs by the Japanese in WWII. My father-in-law was one of those. I hate her.

My grandfather narrowly escaped capture in the Phillipines in late 1941. He was injured and was taken off the islands to New Guinea (and thenlater to Australia) aboard the “Mactan”, which was the LAST hospital ship to leave before the Japanese over-ran the joint. He returned later at the same time MacArthur did!

As far as I am concerned, we should have dropped more A-bombs on them.

What do you notice about all those pictures? She is holding flowers, leaning over, standing behind a podium... look how she is hiding herself. It’s obvious she is pregnant... and obviously completely irresponsible to fly to Japan while she is pregnant, I might add....

In order for Nazi Pelosi to be pregnant, it would have to be an immaculate conception...even test tube sperm would swim the other way faster than the speed of light.

I just searched google news for “pelosi visits ground zero NY “

Your search - pelosi visits ground zero NY - did not match any documents.
Suggestions:
Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
Try different keywords.
Try more general keywords.
Try fewer keywords.

My wonderful Grandfather just died August 21st as I held his hand. He was a PROUD WWII Navy Veteran. He served in the Eurpean theatre as well as the Pacific theatre.

Earlier this year he spent hours telling me stories about the Pacific theatre. My brave Papa never expected to make it home from that war. He fought aboard LST 621 and expected to die by a kamikaze attack. During the Battle of Okinawa he said for over a month straight he’d wake up from his short naps and be amazed that he was still alive.

He was THRILLED we dropped the bombs! He said that’s what saved his life.

I’m glad he passed before this evil, vile excuse for a human being made this trip. My Papa would be disgusted and feel betrayed.

I loathe that Pelosi creature with a loathing I didn’t know I was capable of. She has me so angry I can hardly see through the tears as I type this.

My proud Papa loved his wife, his family and his country and I miss him terribly already.

As I said on another thread — my Dad was on Okinawa when they dropped the bombs. If Truman hadn’t dropped them, my Dad would have been in the first wave of the invasion of Japan. I thank Harry Truman every day of my life!

[In Japanese] ... and then the stupid Gaijin complained that President Bush wouldn't surrender to Al Qaeda, so she offered to surrender to Japan instead. I told her that America already won World War II, but even after repeating myself four times she couldn't understand the concept of "winning a war".

And as the winner of the contest, Nancy gets the toy whistle!

Note to Nancy: My family was at Pearl Harbor. Screw you.

My late Dad was on Guam with the US Navy for the last half of the war. He would probably have been sent into that meatgrinder also.

Somehow, the RATS lost the concept of winning wars.

Love the contrast of pantsuits for the Dems and a real skirt lady we have in Palin.

Nancy would probably place a flag on the Japs that bombed Pearl Harbor if she could find the graves.

Anything to try to say America is brutal....

You may want to know that when you apologized to the Japanese for the bombs, that was OK, you know, blame America first, and besides, the Japanese were just trying to get the imperialistic Americans out of Hawaii. But when you blamed the Bush administration for the bombing, you may wish to know that it wasn’t Bush, if fact, it wasn’t Reagan either, it was Truman, and he was, well, you know, a Democrat. But don’t worry, I have already taken the liberty of changing his party affiliation on Wikipedia, so all those school kids who use that as their only source of information will think the bombs were just another example of Republican imperialism.

In the 1960’s my dad got orders for Okinawa. We lived there three years — there were moments standing in those hills and shoreline you felt the ghosts of many brave men. My father and mother both explained to us the horrendous fighting that took place there.

To those that gave all and those that came back:

Thank you.
