  • Pelosi Supports Occupy Wall Street Movement

    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...

The group then met with Karzai "to discuss the political and security situation in Afghanistan," it added.

    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...

    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, 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...

    With her trip to Syria, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi achieved two things: She undercut her own credibility in Washington, and she spotlighted what is wrong with the Democrats' approach to national security. The spectacle of Pelosi making nice with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in Damascus and accepting at face value his claim that he is ready to "resume the peace process" with Israel had a large portion of official Washington tittering. At the same time, Syrian authorities were telling the local press that there had been no change in its position. And Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Pelosi that...

As a woman, mother, and now the third-highest-ranking elected official in American politics, she has achieved a great deal in life by talking with people. On this trip she made a point of showing how easy it is to interact with Syrians, with an itinerary that included a visit to a souk in Damascus - where she was photographed holding out her hand while a cheerful vendor gave her some nuts. Unfortunately, that photo-op sums up the best that can be said about Pelosi's...

    There is strong evidence that November's Democratic sweep may be more than a one-shot reaction to an unpopular president and his war--it might be one of those pivotal elections leading to a lasting, long-term majority in the Congress and potentially the presidency. Democrats took control of Congress, making history by taking 30 House and six Senate seats without losing a single incumbent or open race. This was especially impressive against a House so gerrymandered that 95 percent of incumbents tend to keep their seats. In all, nearly 58 percent of the total national congressional vote went to the Democrats, as...

    Despite warnings that it could turn the new Congress into a partisan battleground, incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refuses to rule out the possibility that Democrat Christine Jennings could be seated to represent the 13th District when the 110th Congress convenes in 12 days. Republicans and even some Democrats said they expect the seat to go to Republican Vern Buchanan, the certified winner by 369 votes. But Pelosi, who will head a 31-seat Democrat majority in the House, has refused to shut the door on Jennings, until audits, lawsuits and a House investigation are completed. "The bottom line here is...

    Nancy Pelosi is marking her ascension to the Speaker of the House post with a four-day celebration befitting a presidential inauguration. "This is a big deal,” the California Democrat’s spokesman Brendan Daly declared. "We’ve never had a woman Speaker before.” The day after New Year’s Day, Pelosi will visit Baltimore’s Little Italy neighborhood, where she grew up as the daughter and sister of Baltimore mayors. She will visit St. Leo the Great Catholic Church and then eat dinner with her extended family at an Italian restaurant, the Washington Post reports. The next day, Pelosi will attend morning Mass at Trinity...

    Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has told fellow Democrats she wants to pass the party's six top legislative items and toughen ethics rules before President Bush delivers his State of the Union address. The president's speech is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 23, meaning that Pelosi, D-Calif., and the new Democratic majority would have less than three weeks to pass the bills that formed the core of the party's campaign platform. The measures would raise the minimum wage, expand the opportunity for federally funded research on embryonic stem cells, and permit - but not require - the government to negotiate for...

    PELOSI -- IS SHE REALLY THIS OBTUSE? Don't you just love that word ... obtuse? The dictionary gives us this: "not quick or alert in perception, feeling, or intellect; not sensitive or observant; dull. see Pelosi, Nancy " Yesterday I told you that Pelosi had condemned the president for saying that Al Qaeda was involved in the insurgency in Iraq. She said that "the 9/11 Commission dismissed that notion a long time ago and I feel sad that the president is resorting to it again." Now Pelosi made that statement on November 28th. November 28th would be 18 days after...

    WATCH THE HYPOCRISY ON YOU TUBE They are all against the war now. They are all saying it was a bad idea. But if you have not seen what the Democrats said before the war, you need to see this. The words need to come back to haunt them. In 1998, Bill Clinton guaranteed that Saddam Hussein would use the arsenal if he were not stopped. Ted Kennedy demanded that he be disarmed. And now we see what they say when the going has gotten tough. There will be a part 2 when I have a little time to...

    Speaker-to-be tries to stay on agenda, downplay rivalries -- Washington -- First, House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi ruled out the progressives' dream of impeaching President Bush. Now the San Francisco Democrat is squashing the idea of a new military draft, a proposal floated by a top House Democrat as a more egalitarian way to share the burden in Iraq. At a news conference Monday, Pelosi slapped down the idea of a draft offered by Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., the incoming House Ways and Means Committee chairman, which has little support in Congress, the military or the public. But she did so...

    Less than two hours after being officially designated as the next speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi suffered an ignominious defeat.....rejection of her hand-picked, ethically challenged candidate for majority leader. Hoyer's landslide win over Murtha - the House's notorious King of the Earmarks - suggests that many House Democrats actually took seriously Pelosi's pledge to lead "the most ethical Congress in history." More seriously than Pelosi herself did when she began strong-arming members to back Murtha - who was an unindicted co-conspirator in the notorious Abscam scandal......

    Nancy Pelosi has managed to severely scar her leadership even before taking up the gavel as the new speaker of the House. First, she played politics with the leadership of the House Intelligence Committee to settle an old score and a new debt. And then she put herself in a lose-lose position by trying to force a badly tarnished ally, Representative John Murtha, on the incoming Democratic Congress as majority leader. The party caucus put a decisive end to that gambit yesterday, giving the No. 2 job to Steny Hoyer, a longtime Pelosi rival. But Ms. Pelosi’s damage to herself...
