The biggest reason Nancy Pelosi's lies matter is - she's third in line to be the President of the United States. If President Obama were to become unable to serve, Vice President and Gaffemaster General Joe Biden would succeed him. After Biden, the job falls to the Speaker of the House, and that's Pelosi. After Pelosi, it goes to the President pro tempore of the Senate, 91-year old former Klansman Robert Byrd. Following Byrd is the Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Yikes. Biden, Pelosi, Byrd. What a cast of miscreants.
(Note to self - Contact Congressional representatives and urge them to introduce legislation to make the Secretary of State second in line to the presidency, asap.)
I have no idea how someone of Nancy Pelosi's caliber rose to such dizzying heights of power (though the 'dizzy' part fits), but I'm now a firm believer in the Peter Principle. Exhibit A - Pelosi's press conference from two days ago, where she attempts to rehab all her previous contradictory statements about waterboarding into one big contradictory statement, and also accuses the CIA of misleading Congress about enhanced interrogation techniques (EIT's):
Let's review Nancy Pelosi's many different positions on waterboarding, in chronological order:
1) She was never briefed on waterboarding.
2) She was briefed about it, but was told it wasn't being used.
3) After being confronted with information that she was briefed about the waterboarding being used against Abu Zubaydah, Pelosi said she was told the methods were legal.
4) She was told it was being used, and was against it, but there was nothing she could do about it.
Those were her positions before the above press conference. Now we can add:
5) The CIA misled her about waterboarding.
And after CIA chief Leon Panetta contradicted Pelosi by saying the CIA didn't mislead Congress and the briefers were truthful, Pelosi added:
6) She respects the CIA. It was the Bush administration that misled Congress.
And this is the same woman who wants to convene a "Truth Commission" about EIT's. How can someone as highly partisan and dishonest as Pelosi, who wouldn't know the truth if it bit her in the butt, who even threw in "we're creating jobs" in the middle of a press conference about waterboarding, call for a TRUTH commission ? In the same breath Pelosi calls for a Truth Commission, she states that the CIA was lying and the Bush Administration was lying. This reveals there is another name for what Pelosi wants. It's not a Truth Commission at all. It's commonly referred to as a Witch Hunt.
In addition to Pelosi, let's look at some of the other Democrats calling for a "Truth Commission." I couldn't make this up if I wanted to. Leading the charge for a Truth Commission on the Senate side are: Pat Leahy, the treasonous Senator from Vermont, and Diane Feinstein, the corrupt Senator from California.
Wonderful. A Truth Commission By Known Treasonous Corrupt Liars.
What's next ? Maybe a discussion of fiscal responsibility by the President who is running up federal deficits and debt faster than any other administration in history ??? Oh, wait, I almost forgot. That was my last post.
