Pelosi Says President 'Will Leave a Failed War Policy at the Doorstep of New Presidentí, BARF ALERT
Speaker of the House Press Release ^ | 4-10-08 | Brendan Daly/Nadeam Elshami

Posted on 04/10/2008 1:12:03 PM PDT by lilylangtree

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and leaders of veterans groups held a stakeout this morning following President Bush’s speech on Iraq. Below are the Speaker’s opening remarks:

“I want to join Leader Reid in welcoming our special guests today, our friends from the veterans’ community, Bobby Muller, whom we've all worked with over the years, whether it's eliminating land mines and speaking out for veterans.

“Thank you, Bobby, for your leadership. Jon Soltz, who has been very courageous in his statements of shining the light on troops on what is happening in Iraq. We're also joined by Miguel Sapp and Brian McGough, who are Iraq vets.

“I want to say to them how much we all appreciate their courage, their patriotism, and the sacrifice they were willing to make for our country.

“In the military there's a saying, that when we're in battle, we don't leave any soldiers behind on the battlefield. We in Congress have said to our veterans: ‘And when you come home, you will not be forgotten.’

Puce Pelosi & that criminal Harry Reid are at it again. Shameless! With the state of the economy the way it is, all at once bringing our military back to be absorbed into this state of economy would be dangerous.

Well, Nanc...we COULD go in and just turn the place into a big sheet of glass so the next President doesn’t have to worry about it. We could even throw in Iran while we’re at it! A two-fer!

How’d that work for ya? :)

This war is the best thing to ever happen to your career and you know it. Seems to me you PROMISED that if your flying monkeys made you Speaker, this little problem would be solved within 15 minutes.

Now STFU.

Clinton left a failed foreign policy on Bush’s door step.

Come on now,,

Kudos are in order for 2PAC pelosi and her thug party and all their great successes in looking out for the American consumer and protecting this nation’s economy first and always ...

We see those major successes on display everyday in the prices at the gas pump and the grocery aisles.

Nancy, I thought you said the Dims were elected in 2006 precisely to stop the war? So, who actually is failing?

No matter what happens after Jan. 20. 2009, the Dems will blame Bush. If we get hit again, he didn’t do enough, etc. It’s beyond disgusting.

notice I didn’t mention the topic of the thread, because they contribute nil to any peaceful much less successful mission by our military, imo.

Pelosi is trying to ENSURE that the WAR POLICY fails in the minds of the Sheeple, so that the DEMS can SAY it was the previous President that did it.

HAD the DEMS supported the PRESIDENT in this WAR, the end might have been much closer.

"It’s beyond disgusting."

You can say that 1 million times and it isn't enough.

We in Congress have said to our veterans: ‘And when you come home, you will not be forgotten.’

In way, they're telling the truth. They'll always remember the Vietnam Veterans as baby killers and murderers.

So it only goes without saying that they'll remember the War on Terror veterans as, "Dull witted, moronic, robots."

Liberals never, ever forget. We shouldn't forget either that some of the greatest atrocities in our nation's modern history resulted because liberal (and at times isolationist) elements in our society refused to confront any evil that might shoot back at them.

I'll let her hang on the words of Bill Clinton from AFTER the 9-11 attacks:

An Interview With Bill Clinton (long) (The Atlantic Monthly March 2003 James Fallows)

An Interview With Bill Clinton (long) (The Atlantic Monthly March 2003 James Fallows)

The '91 authority gave them [the current Bush Administration] authority to take military action. But they can't do it now because we're under these '98 restrictions on the inspections, which had been accepted. We need to be trying to deal with the substance, the product, which is the chemical and biological weapons and the nuclear program. But the process [is] needed to further international cooperation and do it within the context of trying to build the UN. Because if you just do the first without the second, the price would be truly extraordinary. Now, on the occupation thing, I have a slightly different take. [From the Atlantic cover "The Fifty-first State," which he is pointing at.] My view is that we ought to be there but it really ought to be as internationalized as possible. Just like we did in Kosovo. Including the Russians and OPFOR [opposing force] and whatever. Let everybody do it. Probably they ought to guarantee the oil contracts. But, I've reached the... and, maybe, I know that.... It's a funny thing when you're not in office anymore. You don't do the security briefings. You have to understand. It requires a little humility. In some ways your vision is clearer, because you see the big things clearer. But in other ways your vision is cloudier, because you may miss the exigencies of the moment. So whenever I offer a judgment I try to show some humility, because I know that some things I see more clearly than I did when I was in, but some things I'm quite sure I don't see as clearly.

But I'm pretty sure this is the right thing to do. Press ahead with this thing, try to.... We knew when we did the bombing in '98 that we hit all the known or suspected sites based on the intelligence we had, from all the people that were doing that work there. We knew at the time that we had set his program back a couple years. But sooner or later in the millennium the new Administration, whether it was Gore's or Bush's, would have to take this matter up again.

The next president will NOT be inheriting a war with Saddam Hussein. Saddam's regime does not exist and will not return to power.

Next gripe?

As if whoever will succeed President Bush did not know what he (or God-forbid, she) is getting into. If the Democrats win the White House in 2008 and continue to blame President Bush for everything they screw up, the Republicans should dare the next president to resign if he or she isn't up to the job.

I know it would be a fruitless gesture, but it would serve to remind people that we need a President, not a whiner.

Don't these people ever get sick and tired of their own ranting?

Nancy Pelosi: “And that's why we want the President to manage this war better, to answer the questions to the American people, and, again, I agree with Leader Reid -- he is just dragging this out so he can put it at the doorstep of the new President of the United States."

Translation: Neither of our candidates can handle problems dealing with war, terrorism or national security. Both of them are completely feckless in such matters. Please don't make either of them try, because neither one of them is even remotely qualified for the job they seek. Harry and I both are wondering how either of these boobs has managed to get this far in the process.
