Nancy Pelosi sends fifth letter on Syria By: Ginger Gibson September 7, 2013 11:56 AM EDT
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a fifth letter to Democratic colleagues in a week in an attempt to bolster support for a measure to authorize a U.S. strike in Syria.
In the letter sent Saturday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) highlighted statements supporting the strike by President Barack Obama and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).
Here in California, we are blessed with the leadership of Senator Barbara Boxer, who voted for the resolution marked up this week in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Pelosi wrote to Democrats.
Pelosi, who has said she will not whip an eventual resolution by applying pressure to her members, has nonetheless engaged in a public display of support. In earlier letters, Pelosi emphasized the importance of the strike and has told members she will be flexible about the eventual language in a use-of-force authorization.
With most Republicans likely to balk at the presidents request, any success in passing a resolution in the House will be heavily dependent upon Democrats. But Democrats arent enthusiastically lining up to support the president.
Pelosi also drew attention to Obamas remarks that he had not set a red line in Syria, but that Congress set one in the 2003 Syria Accountability Act.
In Sweden this week, the President said I didnt set a red line; the world set a red line, Pelosi wrote. He continued saying Congress set a red line when it indicated that in a piece of legislation titled the Syria Accountability Act that some of the horrendous things that are happening on the ground there need to be answered for.

This is my fifth letter, count them five! Regarding saving our President's behind from his blustery gaffs regarding Iraq, err Syria, whatever.
He sure is a pickle!
Bla, Bla, bla.
Love and smooches, Nancy.
Call for a full house vote on Syria Nancy, lets see how many democrats want to risk their careers for Obama’s Folly.
Pelosi “The warmonger bitch”. Go to hell.
Pelosi has always been insane.
Too bad Pelosi was not in Syria when the gas blew through.
I thought San Fran Nan and Assad were tight buddies during GWB’s terms in office. Guess he told her to take her hate back to the US.
That’s why I think it pertinent more than ever..to send replies to our Reps and Senators who happen to be Democrats (they’ll be under extra pressure to give in to the beat of the war drums)!

“Here in California, we are blessed with the leadership of Senator Barbara Boxer”
She must be frickin deranged. This woman deserve to be in a mental ward and fast.
Syrian government troops are locked in a battle with al-Quaeda-linked rebels who attacked a Christian village, commandeered a mountain top hotel and began shelling the community below.
Further accounts by villagers tell of desecration of a Catholic church by rebels. That being said, I do find Nancy Pelosi looking quite attractive in her outfit. This is my thoughts and of course I am from a much older generation.
I am waiting for Mother Pelosi to offer her sweeteners.
still no explanation of how expanding Obama’s war on Syria will do anybody any good (pipelines notwithstanding)
ps: Pelosi’s office staff say they are under orders to not respond to citizen letters (even if very respectful and thoughtful) unless you’re on her donor list
has anybody ever been so informed by any other public office holder? just curious
Yeah right. Call for a vote. They keep postponing the vote. I guess Nancy
is still trying to figure out which democratic held seats she is willing to lose
over this debacle.
Bonehead and Cantor control the vote schedule. They are finished. Done.
So what if the Senate votes yes by a couple of votes?
Are we going to start a war over a couple more yes votes than no votes.
Russia is moving more warships to Syria. Jihadist are gathering and preparing for major strikes. We have no allies. It’s a powder keg.
Stop this debacle or learn to love the bomb, because we are headed in
Both Bonehead and Cantor are finished! Done.
Amen it has my vote she’s one of the biggest problem makers in the state and the other chimps that back her.
Kerry was Assad's pal, too. There is a photo of Nan shaking Assad's hand and grinning like a schoolgirl - and a photo of Kerry and the missus having dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Assad.
Looked pretty cozy to me.
anonymous (at least to me!)
Dad, Grandma is off her meds again.
I would be already outa' there regardless of nationality.
If Obama does send in military, I predict it will blow and I wouldn't want to be anywhere near the whole Middle East.
"Chimps" - that's a funny word all by itself!
Hey, nancy...you go back to Syria and have a nice cozy meal with your fellow islamist assad, and then we’ll start blasting away. How’s that?
It’s a powder keg waiting on a spark from DC Elites to ignite it.
Her fifth letter. This one is “G.” 21 to go for the genius.
Aye...it is. And US president is not up to prosecuting a war. I doubt he's even played the game Battleship. He'd probably never played Battleship but if he did, I'd say he probably lost big time, or he cheated to win.
Ditto that. Why is California continually cursed with the likes of Feinstein, Pelosi, Boxer, Waters and so many others? /rhetorical
Oooh, a LETTER ... should we be impressed or scared?
That, is a good one.
SOS...Stay Outta Syria!
To whom it may concern, I’ve called the RINOS Lamar & Corker, mail boxes full, no one answering the phone.
Called my conservative Rep Fincher DITTO.
Looks like NONE OF THEM WANT TO HEAR FROM US CITIZENS!
reid & cry baby have long ago ceased answering their phones!
All of them Except For The Congressional Black Cauci!!!!!!!!
“She called herself ‘Commando Queen’.
She’s arrogant and stupid
And really mean!
She called herself ‘Commando Queen’.
She’s arrogant and stupid
And really mean!”
"Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth.
The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."
-- Columnist Burt Prelutsky, Los Angeles Times
LMAO at the 'Macbeth' and questioning their ability to form words reference!
They are like jackasses because they live up to the party symbol.
Her 5 yo grandson would have sent a more worthwhile letter.
Any state that elects people like Nancy pig lousy, Dianne Feinstein, and Barbara Boxer has to have a bunch of low information voters.
He does have Rep Pelosi with him. Its only a matter of time before she makes the following statement: We have to bomb Syria to find out what happens after!
I am simply not going to say what I really think.
Nobody sends 5 letters to sway someone’s opinion in 1 week, unless your insane.
That’s going to leave a mark.
Pretty good....they ought to run it again saying “was she right THEN or now”.
Just a flashback to that point in time, which wasn’t that long ago.
I’m sure no on in the press has asked her to explain this.
I cannot imagine anyone feeling blessed with the leadership of Barbara Boxer...
See tag line....
