Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is asking supporters for contributions to help prevent the "subpoenas and investigations" that would result from a GOP majority.
In a fundraising letter for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Pelosi says if Republicans take back the House, they'll initiate "endless investigations against President Obama" and "bring back the days of Ken Starr and the politics of personal destruction."
"Remember a Republican-controlled Congress that devoted more time to subpoenas and investigations than to solving our country's problems?" Pelosi asks. "There is far too much at stake for our country now to allow it to happen again."
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, has shown himself willing and eager to be a thorn in the side of the Obama administration on everything from the BP oil spill to the Joe Sestak job offer. Few doubt that he would use a chairmanship to ramp up those efforts.
How is going to float a $18,000/month SF office as a member of the minority? If she can float that, why in hell is shucking for bucks for legal representation? Oh BTW Nancy, I hope you were legally circumspect in all your dealings as Speaker of the House.
I’ll treat her request for donations to be a confession of wrongdoing.
Wait a minute.
Just yesterday Steny Hoyer said those times were prosperous. Now, they’re not?
Dems are mentally ill.
Her eyes are even bigger now...runnin’ sceered are we Natzi?
I knew that when Issa opened his mouth, the cRATs would use it for political purposes (to not give control to the Republicans).
Nanzi ought to cancel her 18k a month lease for her office. That’ll pay for some of it.
Sounds like Nancy knows that she’s well past the point of no return.
You are sooo right Nutjob Nancy! It is almost as of somebody sent a bunch of lawyers to fix an oil leak. Who in their right mind would do something THAT stupid?
Issa has certainly been a thorn in their side, too bad we don’t have a lot more like him. She’s going to try but she won’t pull it off, IMO.
She has a HELL of a lot more faith in the GOP than I do!
Those wussies will “let bygones be bygones” if they gain the majority because they SOOOO want to be liked, in the clique, and invited to all the DC parties!
The dems will make demands on them that they “play nice and share” and the GOP will “roll over and show their bellies.”
My golden retriever has more fight in her than those wusses!
Avoiding GOP investigations? Oh yeah, I remember the investigation-free Bush years!
I love it when the libs use projection. They are the masters of the politics of personal destruction!
LOL!!! She says this as if no one noticed the dems' attempted personal destruction of Bush, Cheney, Palin and anyone else who had the temerity to stand in their way. I will say this... I'm for the personal destruction of the dem machine.
Those Republicans were able to balance the budget... asshat!
Heres a quarter you nasty bit*h. Call somebody who cares. And oh, thanks for admitting you need to defend your traitorous behavior.
I hope they hang your botoxed mug on that collossal gavel you sported about a few months ago with that smug look on your withered puss.
Oh no no, Nan! This ain’t gonna be just about investigating the Kenyan...
Everybody in the current Congressional Leadership, right along with the Administration are gonna be exposed and prosecuted for the treasonous pieces of sh!t that they are.
And we’re gonna snip the puckerstring on the protection you’ve put around yourself, too. Let those 70 year old rolls of criminal skin fall where they may.
Use your flower budget, Nanzi.
