While the nation's capitol buzzes with inaugural fever, party crasher Nancy Pelosi has used the air waves to demand prosecuting the outgoing president. She's at odds with her party's leader and the President-elect, again.
"I don't believe that anybody is above the law," Obama said in a recent television interview. "On the other hand, I also have a belief that we need to look forward, as opposed to looking backwards."
But there was Pelosi, on the eve of the Inaugural, harping over an investigation she wants started into whether the Bush administration broke the law when it fired a group of federal prosecutors.
"I think that we have to learn from the past, and we cannot let the politicizing of, for example, the Justice Department, go unreviewed," she said. "Past is prologue."
Really. The most recent Democrat president, Bill Clinton, fired the entire lot of federal prosecutors a few days after taking office.
But why now at this historic moment, on the weekend before the inauguration of her party's president.
House Democrats last week recommended a criminal investigation to determine whether administration officials broke the law in the name of national security. Along with the fired prosecutors, the report cited interrogation of foreign detainees, warrantless wiretaps, retribution against critics and manipulation of intelligence.
It's clear Speaker Pelosi has basked in the national spotlight.
She apparently can't face the reality of politics in D.C. Once Barack Obama is sworn into office, the house speaker will fade into the background.
Barack Obama isn't just another new president.
He brings a multi-million person grassroots force with him into the office.
Pelosi, on the other hand, has been elected by a couple hundred thousand San Franciscan voters. Her Republican opponent received up 10% of the vote, and Cindy Sheehan (you remember her) received 16% of the vote. Madame Speaker only received 70% of the vote. Then there's Congress' high approval ratings --- 15%.
She has only a few more hours to hold the reigns of power. Then it moves again to the White House.
They pretty much deserve each other.
“She needs to be pushed out of the media spotlight. She’s annoying, arrogant, and tyrannical. At this point, Obama is arrogant, heading towardst he tyrannical, but not annoying.”
“She needs to be pushed out of the House..Period” There, Fixed it.
OH YES HE IS!!!
These actions by Pelosi is simply her way of ensuring re-election by the liberal whack job constituents that elect her.
Ask her about Starkist Tuna, her hubby’s $14MM business interest where she fought minimum wage increases and gave a nice government economic development grant to American Samoa, where processing operations are housed.
Not really news for the MSM.
People like this creature have no judgement and lack any weight in public counsels. It is unfortunate that their degenerate electorate keep returning them to office. They are increasing the risk of Social War and hopefully they will be ignored.
Thee Democrat House and Senate leadership supported Obie over Hillary because they view him as easily manipulated.
Perhaps they know where literally the bodies are buried. I believe him to be compromised and easily blackmailed. Maybe they have a copy of the real birth certificate. Who knows? It doesn't matter. Bottom line is Nancy and Harry are effectively running things now. Obie is just window dressing.
There’s only room for one tyrant in DC, and Nine Percent Peloser isn’t it any more.
Multiple pools of sewage sludge wished for you Nancy Pelosi...and your little miscreants too.
What does Nancy have to say to that? Democrat corruption doesn't count?
Dodd and Rangel for sure.
I live in the Bay Area, but I didn't pay attention to her district's results. That says a lot about San Francisco, that Sheehan beat the Republican on the ballot.
We need to settle those issues with warcrimes trials, convictions, sentencing and hangings on the steps of Congress before we get into any of this later stuff.
Besides, some of these old codgers like Ted Kennedy are close to slipping away from us.
It will never happen. As someone pointed out earlier, The President knows ALL the dirty little secrets and it goes on both sides of the aisle. Remember how bad the Dems wanted Ashcroft and he threw down the gauntlet and started dropping memos. It seems like they started sniffing up another tree real quick when they realized he wasn’t going down quietly.
“She needs to be pushed out of the media spotlight”
She needs to be pushed out a window.
I hope the Democrats do pursue war crimes. It will demonstrate that only W was fighting the war on terror.
It will be a PR nightmare for them. Not to mention, we’ll do it to them first chance we get.
She should also be prosecuted for violating the Logan act and treason for her visit to Syria.
