House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared on CNN with Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday. The Minority Leader former Speaker addressed the ongoing scandal surrounding President Barack Obama’s administration’s response to the Benghazi 9-11 terror attacks.
Pelosi blamed Republicans.
Here’s the video via Mediaite:
Barack Obama proposed $129 million cuts for embassy security and construction in his “sequestration report.”
typical feminist reaction
(Carl) House majority leader Eric Cantor (R-Va) blasted anti-Semitic remarks made about Jewish Republicans by minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) in an interview over the weekend, calling them ‘patronizing’ and ‘insulting.’
“It is both patronizing and deeply insulting for Nancy Pelosi to suggest any Jew is ‘exploited’ for their political beliefs or that support for Israel is somehow an ‘excuse’ for anything,” Cantor (R-Va.) said in a statement.
During the TV interview, Pelosi agreed with the interviewer that Republican Jewish supporters are very politically active and that Jewish voters are intelligent enough to understand the situation.
“Well, that’s how they’re being exploited,” she said. “And they’re smart people. They follow these issues. But they have to know the facts. And the fact is that President Obama has been the strongest person in terms of sanctions on Iran, which is important to Israel.”
Pelosi also is facing criticism that she implied Obama as president has been to Israel “over and over again.”
President Obama has not been to Israel since taking office. He did travel to the country during his 2008 presidential campaign and reportedly went twice as a senator.
Let me guess: No one can find any record of him having been here as a Senator. Just like Occidental and Columbia….
Ah… Pelosi… another fine example of feminism. Think I will add her to the Gertrude Stein collection. She’s old enough to of conspired with the Vichy.
There are people in the US who believe this ridiculous female is presidential material…. (spit)
Ignoring Assad was Clinton’s foreign policy. Now she’s itching to waste Western blood to save the Muslims from themselves. “Why wouldn’t she run? She’s a magnificent secretary of state,” Pelosi said when asked about Clinton’s prospects in 2016. “She’s our shot” that year, Pelosi said.
So, Bernanke tells the truth–for once in his life. But, he had to feign the courage by getting drunk to tell people the truth.
EXCERPT: ‘I might as well tell you that a truer estimate of the U.S. unemployment rate is actually up around 16 percent, with a 0.7 percent annual rate of economic growth if we’re lucky—if we’re lucky.’

The House voted 333-79 on Thursday to censure Representative Charlie Rangel for ethics violations, despite his desperate plea for a lessened punishment: “I brought it on myself, and I still believe that this body has to be guided by fairness, but nobody has ever suffered the humiliation of a censure when the record is abundantly clear [that there is] no evidence at all of corruption,” he begged, to no avail. Politico reports that Rangel “now finds his 40-year career tarnished” after Pelosi censured him, a public spanking in the form of an oral rebuke, the harshest form of punishment short of expulsion from Congress. Yep, the lady made him stand there and just take it. It sounds like it was almost barbaric:
“Pelosi called on the eighty-year-old to stand in the well of the House to be informed that he had been censured by his colleagues. Rangel stood, feet shoulder-width apart with one hand clasped over the other in front of his waist. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus and New York delegations crowded into the first two rows behind him.”
Oh, no! What did they do? Did they stone him? Er, no: “The ordeal was over in about 45 seconds, bringing a surprisingly anti-climatic end to a long battle that cost Rangel $2 million in legal fees,” Politico reports. Here’s what went down:
“‘By its adoption of House Resolution 1737, the House has resolved that Rep. Charles B. Rangel be censured by the public reading of this resolution by the speaker, and that Rep. Rangel pay restitution to the appropriate taxing authorities for any unpaid taxes,’ Pelosi intoned. For all the pomp and circumstance surrounding the ritual, that’s basically the end of the process for Rangel, who will return as a member of Congress in the next session.”
Oh, okay. Back to work then.
Check out this rather charming video below, in which Rangel keeps things in perspective by explaining that in no way was that worse than the time in Korea when he thought he was actually going to die:
so get this… It is treasonous according to Andrew Sullivan for a politician to do the will of the majority of Americans who are against Obama’s foreign policy, but it is just fine for the Democrats and Pelosi to undermine the Republicans by talking to Syria when Bush was president. Undermining Bush was fine,,, but undermining Obama is treason. You would have to be pretty liberal thinking to oblige that conclusion… so liberal that suicide could be an option
