Pelosi: I Showed 'Great Courage' Bashing Bush
NewsMax.com ^ | May 30, 2004 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 05/30/2004 9:17:46 AM PDT by Carl/NewsMax

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that it took "great courage" for her to bash President Bush two weeks ago as "an incompetent leader . . . who has no judgment, no experience and no knowledge of the subjects that he has to decide upon" - explaining that she leveled the incendiary criticism to help U.S. troops in Iraq.

"I made the statement that I did - and I think with great courage, if I might say about myself - because I am worried about the troops on the ground in Iraq," Pelosi told "Meet the Press."

"Believe me, I said this for the troops. I said this for the troops. [It was] a cry for help for the troops," she insisted.

Be more specific. The troops for which side?

"no experience"

She must have missed the part on President Bush's resume about being governor of Texas.

She suggested that the best way to help the troops was to defeat President Bush in November

I'm sure that the troops will vote for Kerry in November based on "Nervous" Nancy's spiel. /sarcasm

At first I thought it PMS. Then I thougtht she is too old for that. The only other reason is because of lack of sleep since she cannot shut her eyelids. Someone please send her a sleep mask, which would serve two purposes. If something is not done, we are going to have to call the boys in the white coats. That is, after they take care of Alpha Gore.

This looney broad's idea of courage is merging into freeway traffic at rush hour. The fact that she can hold elected public office is an excellent example of the downside of democracy.

Why should we want her censured? Isn't it better if she continues to reveal just what a nutcase she is?

The seeming appearance of courage and just plain stupidity, often look exactly the same to the disinterested observer.

Flying into a berserker rage, with the adrenalin kicking in all injectors simultaneously, also insures that the individual so affected feels little or no pain, has superhuman strength, and absolutely zero judgment. This is the best way to evaluate the Nancy Pelosi meltdown performance - like a shrew on speed.

Some may admire Nancy for being so fearless. But believe me, folks, the display was simply a chemically driven visceral response. No brain activity was ever present.

"I have a responsibility to the troops," Pelosi claimed. "We owe them at least a fair fight when they go into battle for us."

I'd love to see the troops show her what they think of her on a live program and see her weasel out of that one and apologize for assuming she knows what the hell she is talking about.

Yes it's a great favor "for our troops" to sew doubt about our comittment. Every story like hers gives feedback to the enemy that we'll bug out if they just keep up the attack. And it makes ordinary Iraqis hesitant to ally with us for fear there'll be reprisals when we abandon them.

As long as liberal twits like Nancy Pelosi continue to attack the policy of the Bush administration, the further the war effort will be undermined, the longer the conflict in Iraq will last and the more US troops will be killed. The terrorists are feeding off the division that exists between the pro-Bush and anti-Bush forces. It's time Democrats placed patriotism ahead of politics. Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way.

Your right about real men not needing chunks of government metal on their chests to be heros. I have heard Ollie North speak of many in the recent months. One that I didn't catch his name was a Navy Corpman who had three Purple Hearts with one wound that would have taken him home and he refused to go because he said he needed to stay to help take care of "His" Marines. God Bless these real HEROS!

Nancy Pelosi does act like a Miss Hitlery wannabe - right up to the shedding of angry tears. Miss Hitlery would never get angry enough to CRY. Pelosi blew it. Dean, Kennedy, Kerry, and Gore shriek. Pelosi cries. And they try to say W has a problem delivering a message - just another item on the long list of projections by the shallow, simple-minded, rude, loud-mouthed liberals.

Yeah, sure, Nancy.

You feel a responsibility to OUR troops just like Tokyo Rose and Axis Sally felt responsibility to our troops in WW2.

If it took such great courage for her to make the statements critical of Bush why didn't she come to the defense of Pete Stark when he showed similar courage leaving the voicemail critical of the letter writer defending Bush's leadership?

The one constant in the universe is that you can assume that anyone who says...

"I showed great courage"
Is a coward.

"I am very intelligent"
Is a moron.

"I have great knowledge of history"
Is closer to being an illiterate Jerry Springer aficionado.

In short, anyone who engages is self-agrandizement usually, as the French say, "does not have a grandmother".

an incompetent leader . . . who has no judgment, no experience and no knowledge of the subjects that he has to decide upon

Not to mention he gained more experince on that awful day 9-11-01 than anyone besides FDR. Where were the leaders of the House and Senate they all had a chance to stand up and lead not one of them did not even McCain.

The next best bet is menopause; combined with the mental illness of liberalism, crying, ramting and screaming would result.
