With the White House facing increasing flak from Republicans over several bubbling scandals, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says Republicans are exploiting the matters in order to tarnish a “great” and “visionary” president.

The California Democrat told reporters Thursday that Republicans have overly hyped the 2012 Benghazi attacks, the Justice Department’s snooping of The Associated Press and the IRS scandal, among other issues, in order to distract the public from their failed economic plans.

“The president is strong. And because he’s strong and because he’s effective, they make him the object of their political action. … But I have great confidence in him.”

I don't see it sticking to anybody except Obama.

Since Pelosi’s so brave, how about her going to Bengahzi and cleaning the consulate and taking over?

What was the outcry over Bush’s “wiretaps” of those stateside communicating with known members of Al Qaeda?

What is Biden’s “he’s gonna put Y’ALL back in chains!” comment about?

What is “Republican energy policies are killing the planet!” about?

FUNP!

If President Obama was truly “strong”, (charismatic), and “effective”, he wouldn’t have to conspire to circumvent Congress to get his legislative agenda passed.

I hate to say it, but she’s being a good samurai. Her loyalty to Obama, the Democrat Party and the Progressive Cause is absolute and there is nothing she won’t do or say in support of them.

I wish there were Pubbies with that sort of absolute loyalty to the Constitution and Conservatism.

She’s useless. Even as a hyper-partisan. With the recent finding that she’s the least popular political leader in Washington, I’m amazed she hasn’t been thrown out by her own party.

The failed Presidency of the Obama Administration has consistently acted against the wishes of the American people and our ideals.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.

There have been threads saying that Hillary has the most to lose if Obama goes down because of her presidential aspirations, but I disagree, it’s Pelosi. She falsly approved his eligibility, a very serious criminal act that conceivably could put her in prison for the rest of her life, and is the reason she’s protecting him like a rabid pitbull with pups.
