  •  Thank you, thank you, thank you (7+ / 0-)

    Been wondering if there was any moral fiber left in DC.  

    Thanks for representing the Bay Area in a way Pelosi "can't" as Leader.

    •  Nancy Pelosi betrayed her oath of office (6+ / 0-)

      ... when she took impeachment off the table and when she brought the dead and buried FISA fiasco '08 back to life and rammed it through the House one Friday morning, limited the "debate" to one hour, got it passed again, then had someone hand-carry it over to the Senate.

      The only reason the Senate didn't get to it that day was because so many had gone out of town to continue their campaigns.  The following Mon/Tue they had to attend someone's funeral, so they didn't get to it until Wed., and Obama voted for it after saying he wouldn't vote for it with telecom immunity (then gave some idiotic reason for passing it..., and now he continues to go along with extending it instead of letting it expire - FISA fiasco '08 also needs repealing).

      Three days after Obama voted for the FISA fiasco he told an audience he'd not only retain Dumbya's 'office of faith-based initiatives,' but he'd expand it and increase funding for it.

      I watched all this unfold on C-SPAN..., and I've rarely been so disappointed in our politicians.

      Nope.  I've never forgiven Pelosi or Obama those stupid decisions either..., or their refusal to impeach or support impeachment Bush &/or Cheney clear back in '07, or even investigate their lies that led to two unconstitutional and illegal wars based on those lies for oil.

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
