"If the Democrats in Congress have the right to demand the transcripts of Vice President Cheney's Energy Working Group," and if Henry Waxman can ask for e-mails from the RNC and all over the place, and Condoleezza Rice and so forth, "then surely we have a moral right to know what was said between the Speaker and President Assad, and judge for ourselves where the truth lies. It is interesting to note that there is no audio of the meeting that we see looped endlessly on TV. But it is clear," Gerd Schroeder writes here, "through the body language of President Assad that he seems to be clearly lecturing Pelosi] about something, while she appears to be dimly smiling and nodding. What is the discussion about? Will we ever know?" But there aren't any transcripts, and she's offering no details. We're just supposed to accept it at face value that she was over there on a message of unity, taking the president's message to Bashar Assad, despite the fact that Tom Lantos said, "No, that's not what we're doing! We were over there advancing our own Democrat foreign policy." Rush Limbaugh, April 11, 2007 [emphasis mine]
PELOSI: The vice president -- I think he accused me of bad behavior, sounding sort of father figure-ish and probably stay home. We don't accept that -- those instructions.
Speaker Pelosi, the Vice President was absolutely correct to chastise you for bad – and illegal – behavior. Contrary to what some site pests I’ve attracted might think, you have ABSOLUTELY NO BUSINESS INTERFERING IN THE FOREIGN POLICY AFFAIRS OF THIS NATION. You weren’t elected by the entire nation – just a bunch of boneheaded cranks out in San Francisco. The same goes for Senator Reid. The entire nation had the “yay” or “nay” on President George W. Bush and the man is president of the ENTIRE United States. You represent a small portion of looney leftists in the San Francisco Bay area.
The wording of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and The Logan Act are all impeccably clear. The foreign policy of this country is not up to you or your gang of arrogant and yet strangely brain-dead compadres on The Hill. And if you keep up this nonsense, don’t be surprised if you end up visiting “Camp Cupcake” or somewehere less salubrious for a significant space of time, where you will be unable to travel ANYWHERE and will be wearing really, really unattractive clothing instead of your pricey suits!
Since you have already broken Federal law and lied about the so-called message you were carrying from the Prime Minister of Israel to Assad, it might not be a bad idea to quit while you are going down for the third time.
The direction from which you have the most to fear is not conservatives, nor any Republicans. No, Mrs. Pelosi – you are making WOMEN in positions of power look foolish and inept. Do you honestly think that Senator Clinton is going to allow THAT to continue?
