Pelosi and Her Lies, Once Again

Will this woman never quit?

Now, with the passage of the House's new energy bill -- which looks like it provides some new drilling, but really doesn't inspire any -- she is not only taking credit, but saying the Republicans have had it wrong.

This is the same person who closed Congress to go on a book tour, while her subjects where suffering from $4-a-gallon gasoline. Now that the markets have lowered that somewhat, she allows a vote. I guess it was now convenient for her. How condescending to us Middle Americans. Plus it's now closer to the elections, so if timed right, will be a boost at the polls, I'm sure she's thinking.

Again, politics before country.

The bill has problems, but all compromises are that way, and I guess it's better to have something, than nothing. However, what really galls me is her comments:

She contrasted her party's plan with "the status quo, which is preferred by Big Oil" and the Bush administration, "or change for the future to take our country in a new direction."

What? She's the one who was trying to block any legislation at all. Remember, she was trying to save the planet.

She insisted that Republicans "must set aside their drill-only mentality."

The Republicans never had a drill-only mentality. Their proposed bill went much further than even the current Democrat version.

Also, in her usual dictatorial ways, the bill was introduced to the House, but no admendments, no committe hearings, no substitutes: it was take it or leave it.

Nancy "my-way-or-the-highway" Pelosi is now fully in charge of the U.S. government. This is how democrats rule. Ask yourself one question: Is this what I want for my country?
