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.

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’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.
