Let’s Help Nancy Pelosi with her Waterboarding Alibi

May 16, 2009

The Left has suggested that members of George Bush’s administration should be prosecuted for their role in sanctioning the physical coercion (waterboarding) of terrorists to extract information that could be used to prevent mass murders by other terrorists. The idea of prosecuting members of the previous Administration is highly reminiscent of Stalinist purges of previous regimes, royal families (Shakespeare’s Richard III comes to mind) who murdered every rival who might have a claim on the throne, and of course Napoleon’s extermination of Snowball’s followers in Orwell’s Animal Farm. Now, however, the Left has a serious embarrassment in the form of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the question as to what she knew about waterboarding and when she knew it. The following cartoon should help Ms. Pelosi with what was once known as the Four-Step Nuremburg War Crime Alibi.

Now, Ms. Pelosi, repeat the following:

(1) “Es geschah nicht.” (“It didn’t happen.”)
(2) “Ich wusste nicht.” (“I didn’t know.”)
(3) “Ich war nicht dort.” (“I wasn’t there.”)
(4) “Ich folgt nur Auftragen.” (“I only followed orders.”)

Nancy Pelosi’s Trillion Dollar Ego

October 1, 2008

Do Democrats still want to ask if Sarah Palin is ready to lead???

This Monday, the stock market lost a trillion dollars in market capitalization after the House of Representatives rejected bipartisan legislation to restore the flow of credit upon which American business depends. Republican and Democratic leaders had both worked to get what they expected to be enough votes from their respective parties to pass the legislation, even though many Representatives have valid misgivings about the expenditure of $700 billion to bail out private businesses. Many of their constituents do as well, and they told their Representatives. In other words, Republican and Democratic leaders had to work hard to overcome this constituent-side pressure.

Finally, all was ready. Democrats and Republicans had agreed on bipartisan legislation, and they thought they had enough votes to pass it. Then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, the individual who is but two heartbeats away from the Presidency, said this: (more…)

Nancy Pelosi Put Herself and her Party Above her Country

September 30, 2008

The tragedy of Nancy Pelosi’s self-serving and partisan speech on the failed legislation to restore the nation’s credit markets is that its technical content was largely correct. Had Pelosi not insisted on gratifying her own ego and spleen by getting in a dig at Republicans and the Bush Administration, the bill might have passed.

    It is a crisis that freezes credit, causes families to lose their homes, cripples small businesses, and makes it harder to find jobs. It is a crisis that never had to happen. It is now the duty of every member of this body to recognize that the failure to act responsibly, with full protections for the American taxpayer, would compound the damage already done to the financial security of millions of American families. …The corporate CEOs whose companies will benefit from the public’s participation in this recovery must not benefit by exorbitant salaries and golden parachute retirement bonuses.
