    Pelsoi: GOP wants to ‘Destroy Government’, Wonders 'Do Their Children Breathe Air?’ Friday, September 02, 2011 By Eric Scheiner (CNSNews.com) - During a Democratic fundraising event in San Francisco late last month, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D- Calif.) declared Republicans are ‘hijacking’ the deficit issue in order to ‘destroy the public space’ and wondered aloud “Do their children breathe air?” An audience member recorded Pelosi’s address at the August 21, 2011 fundraiser where the California Democrat attacked Republicans on the deficit. “The Republicans right now are using the idea of deficit reduction as an excuse, they’re hijacking an idea...

    Pelosi Agrees With Rep. Jackson Lee: Republicans Raised Fuss Over Debt Limit Because Obama Is Black (Video) The worst Speaker in US history was back at it this past week. Minority Leader Pelosi told a group of black democrats that Republicans only raised a fuss during the debt debates because Obama is black. Via The Blaze: Democrats are incapable of understanding why anyone in their right mind would not want to steal from taxpayers to buy votes. This is the same nut who claimed she lowered the deficit.

    Accompanied by a small bipartisan band of House lawmakers, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) arrived in Italy Friday to visit with U.S. troops amid the ongoing political uprising in nearby Libya. The excursion — Pelosi's first official trip abroad this year — comes a day after the United Nations passed a resolution allowing a no-fly zone over Libya and authorizing the international community to take "all necessary measures" to protect Libyan civilians. Italy has lobbied other countries for help to deal with the refugee crisis as Libyans flee their homeland amid the violence. The Libyan government called for an "immediate...

    Note to fashion reporters: Don't ask Nancy Pelosi what she's wearing. At Tuesday's state dinner, Washington Post's Robin Givhan approached the House Speaker and, according to a pool report, asked, "Is your gown Armani?" "Pelosi shot her a disapproving stare and rolled her eyes a bit," says the pool report. She also refused to answer Givhan's follow up question, "What was that look?!"

    Krauthammer also provides some overwhelming factoids regarding Pelosi's charge that the CIA lied to her: "Her charge of the CIA lying to her is utterly implausible. Why would it lie to her and tell all the others the truth? It makes no sense at all; and it was refuted by the black and white Obama CIA memo –– not a memo out of the Prince of Darkness: Bush and Cheney; but Obama CIA –– would show that in the briefing in which she says none of this simulated drowning occurred, they had specifically told her about the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques...

    Embattled Republican Senate hopeful Jeanine Pirro will hold an "emergency summit" with Gov. Pataki today as she weighs pulling out of the race against Hillary Rodham Clinton. A leading Republican official said Pirro was "weighing her options, weighing her future as a Senate candidate." The source added, "She wants to hear what the governor has to say about this. She's open." Pirro, whose troubled campaign was thrown into serious doubt this week when state Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno urged her to run for attorney general instead, sought the meeting with the governor to discuss the direction of her campaign,...

    New York -- Jeanine Pirro said Friday she is staying in the race against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, despite pressure from some top Republicans that she abandon her struggling campaign. "I said from the beginning I am running for the United States Senate. I am a candidate for the United States Senate," Pirro said after emerging from a two-hour meeting with Gov. George Pataki in Manhattan. She said her meeting went well but did not detail the discussion.

    Bruno: Pirro should quit anti-Clinton race By MARC HUMBERT AP Political Writer November 29, 2005, 12:44 PM EST ALBANY, N.Y. -- The most powerful Republican in the state Legislature called Tuesday for Jeanine Pirro to give up her quest to unseat Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2006 and run instead for state attorney general. State Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno said the Westchester County district attorney could win the attorney general's race while in running for Senate, "she's going to have one of the most competitive races in the state." Independent polls have shown the former first lady well ahead...

    Jeannine Pirro should get out of this race immediately. Her campaign is going nowhere and she is selfishly wasting our time. Here's why. “Forty-five percent (45%) now see [Senator Hillary] Clinton as politically liberal.” So says the Rusmussen Report. Why? What positions do voters believe Hillary Clinton holds that turn them off? Well people believe she supports gay “marriage.” They believe she supports abortion up to and including partial birth abortion. Likewise, they believe she supports extreme positions attacking the second amendment and they believe she supports affirmative action. Since she is the most calculating person in American politics this...

    ALBANY, Nov. 29 - Jeanine F. Pirro's bid to unseat Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton suffered an embarrassing setback on Tuesday when the State Legislature's most powerful Republican said she should call the whole thing off and run for state attorney general instead. The remarks by the official, Joseph L. Bruno, the majority leader of the State Senate, forced out into the open simmering concerns about Ms. Pirro's candidacy, which has been beset by gaffes and fund-raising difficulties. And it heightened the sense that the state Republican Party is nervous about its future and riven by squabbles as its de facto...

    November 16, 2005 -- ALBANY — Republican Senate hopeful Jeanine Pirro refused yesterday to back President Bush's selection of Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court, in part because of Alito's past anti-abortion views. The refusal by Pirro, who backs abortion rights, drew a quick condemnation from state Conservative Party leader Mike Long, whose support Pirro has been aggressively seeking. "I'm assuming Jeanine supported Bush for president and, therefore, she should be out front supporting the president's nominee for the Supreme Court — because we know Hillary Clinton is going to vote 'no,' " Long said. Pirro, the outgoing Westchester district...

    Isn't strange that Sean Hannity prides himself on his reach and he has yet to discover the truth about Jeannine Pirro? Look at the parallels between the Pirro effort and the attempt to clear Harriet Miers way onto the Supreme Court. We were asked to trust the president on Ms. Miers, I did. My trust began to wane when some of what we were told in support of the nomination turned out to be untrue. Ultimately Ms. Miers problems were greater than she could handle because her nomination was not built on a solid foundation. The efforts toward securing the...

    JEANINE PIRRO Conservatives eye rival. Jeanine Pirro's little-known opponent for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate is close to winning crucial backing from the small but influential Conservative Party, insiders say. Such a success by former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer would deny Pirro a vital endorsement in what would already be — if she is the GOP nominee — an uphill battle against incumbent Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. And it would be the latest blow for Pirro, the outgoing Westchester County district attorney whose campaign has been marred by stumbles and fund-raising shortfalls. Tactically, Spencer, a tough-talking ex-Marine who...
  • No Gaffe by Pirro Passes Unnoticed, the Clinton Campaign Ensures

    10/23/2005 9:50:30 AM PDT · by oxcart · 13 replies · 689+ views
    Last week, Jeanine F. Pirro assembled the press corps in Albany to announce a statewide advertising campaign meant to draw attention to her criminal justice agenda, a pillar of her campaign to unseat Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton next year. But if Ms. Pirro, the Westchester County district attorney, hoped the event would give her flagging campaign the lift it needed, she might have been mistaken. Mrs. Clinton's political operation moved swiftly to undercut the announcement's significance and, more important, deprive her of any positive news coverage: a political operative from the state party was dispatched to the Pirro event to...

    WASHINGTON — GOP Senate wannabe Jeanine Pirro's campaign piggy bank is stuffed with cash from hubby Al's pals — and some donors with shady pasts. Among the $438,555 Pirro collected in the most recent fund-raising period in her matchup against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton were two checks from Salvatore Promuto totaling $1,750. Promuto, a New Rochelle resident, was a target of a Connecticut anti-trust probe of trash haulers in the mid-1980s that led him and others to agree to pay nearly $800,000 to several area communities. Pirro also got $4,200 from the company run by Robert F. Ferrucci, who was...

    Pirro, rivals contrast records By NOREEN O'DONNELL THE JOURNAL NEWS NANUET — Listening to Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro yesterday, it was as if she had already gotten the Republican nomination to challenge U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton. The problem? The three men who will not get out of her way. "I'm running against Hillary Clinton, no one else," Pirro said at a meeting with Republican officials at a Comfort Inn to interview candidates for state offices. "I'm interested in addressing the issues that this state is confronted with." But also present were Manhattan lawyer Ed Cox and former Yonkers Mayor...

    When Jeanine Pirro announced her interest in running against Hillary Clinton, she reminded reporters who dismissed her chances: "I'm a fighter." But already Pirro appears to be unilaterally disarming - by issuing a promise not to fight back against a vicious series of personal attacks by Mrs. Clinton's media surrogates. "Republicans who want us to throw mud at [Hillary] will be disappointed," Pirro campaign manager Kieran Mahoney tells New York magazine, before stating flatly: "We won’t engage in negative attacks." Asked to certify the no-negative-campaign pledge with a formal promise, the Pirro insider responded: "Jeanine already has." Instead, Mahoney said,...

Meet her brand manager, Kieran Mahoney, the former Pataki packager who previously ran her successful campaigns for Westchester D.A. Greg Sargent spoke with him. Pirro says Hillary Clinton treats her job as a stepping-stone to the White House. But isn’t her own run a means toward greater fame—or a Fox News gig?If she wanted a career in broadcast journalism, she could have it today. Pirro’s running to win.
