Nancy Pelosi: Pro-Troop Vote 'a Disgrace'

Saturday, Nov. 19, 2005 10:54 a.m. EST Nancy Pelosi: Pro-Troop Vote 'a Disgrace'

Anti-war House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is blasting last night's 403 to 3 House vote in support of U.S. troops and their mission in Iraq, calling it "a disgrace."

Complaining that House Republicans had engaged in a "deception" by calling for a last minute vote on the Iraq war, the San Francisco Democrat said the pro-troop resolution was "a disservice to our country."

Pelosi said that the "Republican majority has stooped to a new low" by forcing Democrats to go on the record against an immediate pullout.

Her California colleague, House Armed Services Committee chairman, Rep. Duncan Hunter, wrote the resolution, which asked whether members thought "that the deployment of United States forces in Iraq be terminated immediately."

"We're going to let every member answer that, and I hope the message that goes back to our troops in Iraq is that we do not support a precipitous pullout," Hunter said.

Pelosi slammed Hunter's proposal as "a political stunt and should it be rejected by this House" - minutes before she voted with the Republican majority.

So she spoke against the resolution after she voted for it?

When you are one of the only three members of your party on the same side of a vote, should you really be the minority leader?

Democrat philosophy 101: Always follow the biggest moonbat.

Pelosi voted against it - she didn't side with the three. If the article is correct, she's denouncing a resolution she voted for.

Apparently, showing what you stand for is "a new low".

This article needs to be read by every voter in the country.

How dare they be forced to put up or shut up. We called and they folded. Ha!

Even Murtha didn't vote to recommend immediate withdrawal.

Well, at least she's honest. To her, supporting the troops is a disgrace.

I wonder whar the vote would have been had the bill had exactly the same wording as Murtha's statements ...also could the Dems have tried to ammend the bill to their liking? did they?

But of course! Don't the Republicans know that only DemocRATs are allowed to pull politcal stunts? You can ask Harry Reid, he'll tell you!

Forcing?? If dimocRAT opposition to the war, our troops, and their mission were anything other than baldly politically motivated, there wouldn't be any 'forcing' about it.

Yep, she voted against it. The three for it were:

Jose Serrano of New York, Robert Wexler of Florida and Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, voted for withdrawal

With apologies to Sinatra:

If I don't see her each day I miss her
Gee, what a thrill each time I kiss her
I've got a terrible case
On Nancy with the frowning face

She takes the winter and makes it summer
But summer could take some lessons from her
Picture a tomboy in lace
That's Nancy with the frowning face

Have you ever heard mission bells ringin'?
Well, she'll give you the very same glow
When she speaks you would think it was singin'
Just hear her say "hello"

I swear to goodness you can't resist her
Sorry for you, she has no sister
No angel could replace
Nancy with the frowning face

Keep Betty Grable, Lamour, and Turner
She makes my heart a charcoal burner
It's heaven when I embrace
My Nancy with the frowning face

She voted with the other 402 that voted against it. I agree she's a twit, but let's not rewrite history.

This broad's a maroon!

Dang, she's sounding more and more like presidential material from the left. "She spoke out against it, after she voted for it." It's the John Kerry model, shown to be soooo successful in the recent past.

The objective with the Duncan proposal was to get House members on record. The 403-3 vote speaks for itself.

Tell us Nancy, since the vote went 400 to 3 with your vote, not against, what is your problem? Did you cast a dishonest vote? Just wondering...

I'm sure that the Dems had planned to use the coming two week vacation to press home their, now, opposition to the Iraq war. This has effectively disarmed them.

Well done Mr Speaker.

At some point, the rats are going to have to learn that THEY ARE NOT IN POWER. The American voters keep telling them but they refuse to believe it as they get slapped over and over.

I see Pella Lugosi's days being numbered in her "leadership" position.

Complaining that House Republicans had engaged in a "deception" by calling for a last minute vote on the Iraq war...

I guess only Harry Reid is allowed to engage in deception by calling for a last minute closed session of the Senate with telling Frist first.

Shame on the Republicans for learning from the Democrats' playbook and using Democrat tactics against them.

Exactly what you would expect from that two-faced weasel.

I hope her liberal constituents give her hell for not standing proud against the war on terror.
