Pelosi Accuses GOP Of Holding Up Funds Which Would Have Provided Security For Libya Consulate
mediaite.com ^ | 10/02/2012 | n/a

Posted on 10/02/2012 7:58:48 PM PDT by massmike

House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared on CNN with Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday where she sat down for a wide-ranging interview. The Minority Leader addressed the ongoing scandal surrounding President Barack Obama’s administration’s response to the September 11 attacks in Libya which left four dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Pelosi said that Republicans in Congress withheld $300 million in funds for Libya which would have provided for enhanced security around the Benghazi consulate. When Blitzer asked if she thought Republican calls for an investigation into the incident in Benghazi were political in nature, Pelosi replied “One might suspect that.”

Oh My God, How much longer will we have to put up with this friking sorry excuse for a human being. Her lies get worse by the day.

Every day I read about ex Speaker of the House Pelosi and her friggin lies and I haven’t heard from Speaker Boehner in defense in a month or more.

GROW A PAIR Boehner and answer this witch.
GROW A PAIR and speak up for Romney.
GROW A PAIR and speak against Obama.

Say something, even if it is wrong.

Worse yet if we win the House again the Republican pukes will vote for this drunken no nut Speaker again.

Poor Pelosi, if they didn’t have the money for security, they shouldn’t have been there.

That is why they call it the executive branch of government.

Idiot!

I don’t know Nancy, there is a August 23rd 2011 Washington Post news article that says that the Obama Administration wanted to release up to $ 1.5 Billion to the Libyan rebel alliance, so Nancy ? if you and the Obama Administration was not busy arming Libyan rebels with that money, there would have been more than enough money to beef up security at the US Embassy, another lie exposed.

BS She is a lying SoS. It would not have taken that much money to protect that embassy. So it’s not a matter of money. It’s a matter of priorities and even caring about security in the first place.

Every day I read about ex Speaker of the House Pelosi...I haven’t heard from Speaker Boehner...in a month or more.

So, what is the truth, is Boehner silent, or is there a RATagandist blackout of him?

Either is a possibility.

Hey Nancy Pelosi ?

Here is another News article... from CNN, your good old buddies.

According to a ( read the date Nancy Pelosi, August 1, 2012 ) CNN news report:
The State Department released a statement that Wednesday the United States set aside:

" $25 million for "nonlethal" assistance to the Syrian opposition " ...

Yes Nancy, that $ 25 Million could have helped beef up security at the US Embassy in Libya instead of giving it to those who indeed attacked the US Embassy in Libya.

Sorry Nancy, your lies don't hold water.

Should we find more news reports of you and this administration arming the Libyan rebels ? where that money could have been put to good use in beefing up our security at the US Embassy in Libya ?

Drudge, the New Media, Rush Limbaugh, need to counter this with news reports of actual funding of the Libyan rebels by this Administration who in fact attacked our US Embassy in Libya.
Instead of funding the Libyan rebels, that money could have been put to good use in beefing up the security at our US Embassy in Libya.

Counter the lies with facts....

They probably have plenty of "goods" against Boehner and they're blackmailing the hell out of him.

NEVER underestimate the evil of the democrat party.

I loathe Pelosi, she is clinically insane, you could tell her to look up, she’d look down, you could have a hot stove and say to her: “whatever you do, don’t put your hand on the stove, or you’ll get burned”, well, she would not only place her hand on the stove, she’d smile while her hand smelters from the heat!

Not to worry Ms Nancy.. help from the media is on the way.. a “nonpartisan” radio that features Truthers will likely be “reporting” that Romney asked Bush and Cheney to have Al Qaeda attack Benghazi “like they did to being down the Towers.”

Geeze.....The Dems have an excuse for everything. This whinny form of politics fits the whinny 60’s generation perfectly, too. They have an answer for evrything but, a solution for absolutely nothing.

The 60’s generation changed the world with their art and music (I’ll give them that) but, good god they are crappy leaders when it comes to the hard realities of life.

Nancy...Harry.....President Obama....”Put your Beatles albums away, put down your bongs, and send your trashy friends home. It’s time to break out the calculator and figure out how your going to pay next months bills.”

“My question is, will Boehner cry or hit back?”

Pelosi Galore has Boehner by his testicle.

I’ve long since ceased expecting any leadership from Boehner - the wimpy-tear leader of the gutless, and his merry band of non-existent opposition leaders!

I wish Boehner had Pelosi’s testicles!

“crappy leaders” What you said, doubled.

I’ve seen more rational dispute resolution on my little girl’s playground over using swings and `teeter-totters’. These are grownups, the House minority leader, using this “I’m rubber and you’re glue ... “ horses***.
Pelosi’s one of the worst along with Harry Reid when it comes to: `My party, right or wrong.’ They should be run out of DC on a rail, along with the GOPers who roll with them.
The founders apprised of our situation might say, “We warned you about factionalism and the Republic—if you could keep it.” Well, the experiment continues.
I hope Romney does well tomorrow. I don’t much like him either but four more years of “What’s mine is mine—what’s yours is negotiable,’ that just ain’t gonna work.
