WASHINGTON (AP) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans on Thursday, saying they want the Iraq war to drag on and are ignoring the public's priorities.
"They like this war. They want this war to continue," Pelosi, D- Calif., told reporters. She expressed frustration over Republicans' ability to force majority Democrats to yield ground on taxes, spending, energy, war spending and other matters.
"We thought that they shared the view of so many people in our country that we needed a new direction in Iraq," Pelosi said at her weekly news conference in the Capitol. "But the Republicans have made it very clear that this is not just George Bush's war. This is the war of the Republicans in Congress."
Asked to clarify her remarks, Pelosi backed off a bit. "I shouldn't say they like the war," she said. "They support the war, the course of action that the president is on." "And that was a revelation to me," she said, "because I thought the American people's voices were so—and still are—so strong in this regard."
Mrs. Pelosi, you ignorant leftwing dope, the American people didn’t vote the Democrats into the majority with a mandate to make this a nation of seditious cowards, trembling in a corner for fear the big bad wolf would huff and puff and blow our houses down. Americans were frustrated with the rampant spending of the previous Congress and at the atmosphere of shrill discord existing in our Nation’s Capitol.
Americans support our troops. Americans support SUCCESS in Iraq – something that is happening in spite of the cowardly cowering going on in our Congress.
Madame Speaker, you seem to have no idea that every time you open your big fat, stupid yap, you give aid and comfort to those who would destroy our entire way of life. It is my earnest wish and prayer for 2008 that the American people have had enough of you and your ilk (and the poll numbers seem to say that they have) and will boot your sorry asses out of the U.S. Congress.
