PostHeaderIcon VDH Shames Pelosi

At the corner, Victor Davis Hanson says it well:

Have You No Sense of Decency, Ms. Pelosi, at Long Last? Have You No Sense of Decency?

The news that Nancy Pelosi was, in fact, briefed on the use of enhanced interrogation techniques as early 2002 should have two repercussions. Her status as a legislative overseer involves more responsibility than was true of the legal advisors who offered opinions that could or could not have been accepted by the administration and those select few in Congress charged with monitoring CIA protocols.

Second, Pelosi has repeatedly misled the country about her exact role in such oversight and the degree to which she was briefed — quite unlike Yoo, Bybee, etc. who have not denied their briefs, but sought to argue they were legitimate options given the crises of the times and the nature of the killers involved. All of which leaves us in a quandary — will those who are on record demanding to indict, impeach, disbar, etc. lawyers who offered legal briefs (and have told the truth of their role in offering such opinions), now turn their animus to others who (1) had the legislative authority to stop cold what they knew was going on, but instead approved it, and (2) have not been at all truthful about such complicity?

What we are seeing is yet another chicken, albeit a large one, coming home to roost — especially when we were lectured throughout 2007-8 that what has now become the current Obama anti-terror protocols (e.g., rendition, wiretaps, email intercepts, Predator drone executions, staying the course in Iraq, etc) were once all proof of Bush’s trampling of the Constitution that had only empowered our enemies.

At some point, someone in the Obama media is going to have to come to their senses and admit, “Okay, enough is enough, this is getting shameless beyond belief.”

Indeed. The Botox is surely migrating inward and paralyzing her thinking muscle. Early retirement for this mental disability may be in order. I don’t know what to do about what ails the MSM, other than continue to ignore them. â—„Daveâ–º

  • I’m glad to see this. Now that the current Democratic speaker of the house could be taken down in an investigation, maybe all those Republican partisans out there will be willing to sacrifice their former executive to see her fall. It’s time to clean house.

  • Works for me, if you include the new usurper too. 😉

    A pox on all their houses. â—„Daveâ–º

  • Dave, I’m missing that voice of reson and measured response over at 912. Stop in every now and then just to make sure I’m still alive or free for that matter. I’ll continue to check up on your twitter posts.
    See ya,

    • Thanks for checking in, Tony. Yeah, it is time to go back and see how things are going there. I gravitated to some of the social networking sites organized around the 912 theme; but while the format was a vast improvement, the quality of debate wasn’t as good as available at the original with you and a few others. I miss it. â—„Daveâ–º

    Nancy Pelosi is a big turnoff. She talks down to everyone, and quite frankly I wish she was voted out last time. I mean, though I disagree with Dave on the healthcare law (I like it), she was on TV talking about how great the healthcare law was–and for the duration of the interview, I found myself liking it less and less.

    Pelosi… is not a great communicator. I realize that this is from 2009 (sorry for bringing up an old thread… if I can’t do this let me know and I won’t 🙂 )I’m betting that if you go back and look at her interview, she will backtrack several times. This is why I have such dislike for her.

  • You are more than welcome to comment on old articles, Greg; and I will try to clarify any questions you might have on them. Just please understand that my worldview is constantly changing, as I learn new data and have new experiences, which change my perspective. So, don’t hold me to a past assertion that I would no longer make, or even believe. A good example is my recent epiphany on the republic vs. democracy issue, which I addressed in my latest “Ugly Truths” post on 7/1/12. I was s rather looking forward to your comments on that one. 🙂 â—„Daveâ–º

  • Greg says:

    Well, Dave, since you brought that up: Has your worldview changed since then? Also, it’s a good thing it’s changing, in whatever direction it may be: means you’re learning 🙂

    Here is a list that I’ve compiled for this year about people I want out of office who are NOT in the obvious leadership position of President (Senator, House, etc.). I wonder if you would feel the same way:
