    10/09/2011 1:30:07 PM PDT · by Borough Park · 38 replies
    By JESSICA DESVARIEUX WASHINGTON, Oct. 9, 2011 House Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she supports the growing nationwide Occupy Wall Street movement, which began on the streets of downtown New York City in mid-September. "I support the message to the establishment, whether it's Wall Street or the political establishment and the rest, that change has to happen," said Pelosi in an exclusive interview with ABC News "This Week" anchor Christiane Amanpour. "We cannot continue in a way this is not relevant to their lives." Pelosi sees the protestors' anger stemming from unemployment, which remains above 9 percent.

    Nancy Pelosi: Kiss your Medicare goodbye By: Seung Min Kim July 28, 2011 01:14 PM EDT House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi dialed up the rhetoric before Speaker John Boehner’s plan to raise the debt limit heads to the House floor for a vote, declaring it a “job-killer” and saying seniors could “kiss their Medicare good-bye.” “If you believe in that the education of our children, the retirement of our seniors, the creation of jobs in a fiscally sound way, you couldn’t possibly vote for the bill that the Republicans are bringing to the floor today,” Pelosi said Thursday. The speaker’s...

    "Mullah Nancy bin Pelosi is convincing Democrats to blow themselves up for health care. The only thing she can't do is promise them 72 virgins." "Pelosi just said that the bill can be bipartisan even though the votes might not be bipartisan. Are we live? Are we actually on the air, or am I dreaming?" "Algore had a piece in the New York Times yesterday which I might dissect, but I don't know… It really is painful to expose one's self to such psychological frailty."

    It reads like a dream order for some wild frat party: Maker's Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey's Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey … and Corona beer. But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for "in-flight services" – including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. That's almost $1,000 per week.

    The arrival of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who came to Baghdad on Saturday with a congressional delegation, set off a now-familiar cycle of reaction in the Iraqi capital. First there was buzz around the city about flight delays from Baghdad International Airport, which goes into lockdown when VIPs land or takeoff. Since no dust storms were grounding flights, anyone traveling could have assumed some American bigwig was heading in. But when local TV reported the visitor was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, there was a collective shrug of the kind you might expect from Republicans catching a glimpse of her somewhere...

    Reid: Bush has 'exit strategy' only for himself Congressional Democrats pushed back hard Thursday against President Bush’s speech on Iraq, accusing him of delaying further troop withdrawals so that he can hand off the conflict to the next president. Democrats welcomed Bush’s call to reduce troop deployments from 15 months to 12 months, but they said he should go further and embrace a proposal by Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) under which soldiers would spend at least a year at home before they could be called back to active duty in Iraq. Webb’s deployment proposal came up three votes short last...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans on Thursday, saying they want the Iraq war to drag on and are ignoring the public's priorities. "They like this war. They want this war to continue," Pelosi, D- Calif., told reporters. She expressed frustration over Republicans' ability to force majority Democrats to yield ground on taxes, spending, energy, war spending and other matters. "We thought that they shared the view of so many people in our country that we needed a new direction in Iraq," Pelosi said at her weekly news conference in the Capitol. "But the Republicans have made it...

Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., hasn't been treated differently because she's the only woman in the presidential race, but added that her campaign appears to have been trying to exploit that perception in the wake of last week's Democratic debate. Pelosi, the nation's first female House speaker, told in an interview that she didn't agree with observers who thought Clinton was drawing particular heat because she's...

    Neal Boortz -- NOW PELOSI IS CHIMING IN Yesterday Nancy Pelosi joined several other prominent Capitol Hill Democrats like John Kerry in calling for a revival of the Fairness Doctrine. She also said that a bill introduced into the House to wipe the Fairness Doctrine off the face of the map "wouldn't make it to the floor." Then, after Pelosi's remarks, the House proceeded to pass an amendment which would prohibit the FCC from reviving the fairness doctrine. How would this happen? Cut the funds ... take away the money. It prevents FCC funds from being used to reinstate...

    Vice President Dick Cheney delivered a scathing report card Friday on the Democrat-controlled Congress that marks its 100-day milestone this weekend, rebuking its leadership for trying to usurp foreign policy and military operations. Cheney continued the Bush administration's denouncement of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's recent trip to Syria, saying "we don't need 535 secretaries of state," referring to the number of lawmakers in Congress. "No member of Congress, Democrat or Republican, has any business jetting around the world with a diplomatic agenda contrary to that of the president and the secretary of state. It is for the executive branch,...

Both the House and Senate have passed versions of the bill — the House version is $124...

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, deflecting White House criticism of her trip to Syria, said Friday she thinks the mission helped President Bush because it showed the U.S. is unified against terrorism despite being divided over Iraq. Pelosi, D-Calif., met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus this week against Bush's wishes. "Our message was President Bush's message," Pelosi said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from Portugal, where she stopped briefly en route back to the United States. "The funny thing is, I think we may have even had a more powerful impact with our...

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she raised the issue of Saudi Arabia's lack of female politicians with Saudi government officials on the last stop of her Mideast tour. Pelosi, the first woman House speaker, said she had not discussed King Abdullah's recent criticism of the U.S. occupation of Iraq, focusing instead on praise for the king's Mideast peace initiative, and efforts to quell conflicts in Somalia and Darfur. She met with the king Wednesday and with several members of the Shura Council, an unelected advisory assembly named by the king, on Thursday. Asked...
