Nancy Pelosi: Iraq not our responsibility
Posted on Thursday, June 12 at 9:08am | By Carolyn Lochhead

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made it clear Thursday that she would oppose renewed U.S. intervention in Iraq, which is under assault from Sunni forces sweeping down from the north.

The San Francisco Democrat said at her weekly press conference that there is “no appetite in our country to be engaged in any military activity in Iraq.”

She attributed Democratic gains in 2006 that gave her the House gavel to public exhaustion with the Iraq War.

No real surprises there. Only mildly surprising thing is Pelosi openly admitting it.

Nancy Pelosi must be smoking some of that marijuana in her district. She was Speaker of the House from 2007-2011. Many of her cronies were in key positions.

They have been thrown under the bus.
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."

Totally.

November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.
