    Pelosi: Nothing more to say on her CIA allegation

    The title of this story should have been "If at first you don't succeed LIE, LIE again. Then shut up".

    It was clear when she started her lies that she was lying. Every radio talk show host that I am aware of knew about water boarding and talked about it on the air either for or against going back to the opening of GITMO. And yes they are all moderate to conservative leaning people hosts. Since no one was listening to "Error America" the leftist network ever.

    The story ; Pelosi: Nothing more to say on her CIA allegation

    WASHINGTON (AP) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday she won't talk any more about her charge that the CIA lied in 2002 about using waterboarding on terrorism suspects.

    "I have made the statement that I'm going to make on this," she told reporters at a Capitol Hill news conference. "I don't have anything more to say about it. I stand by my comment."

    But Republicans aren't letting this one slide.

    Ken Spain, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, issued a statement after the news conference calling Pelosi a political liability to the Democratic party.

    "Her obsession with the previous administration and her disdain for America's intelligence officials has reduced her to cheerleader status within the far left wing of her party and a distraction to the substantive debate over how to best move our economy forward," said Spain.

    Does anyone still wonder why she's often called Nasty Piglousy?

    I was hoping she would have more to say. I just love her Porky Pig imitation when she gets caught in a lie.

    I hope she looses her Speaker position. Which brings up the question: how the heck did she get it in the first place?!?

    Good, maybe she will shut up and stop hurting the democratic party. This was at worst a big deal over nothing, until she opened her mouth.

    She is only hurting her party by revealing it.

    Apparently, I was too subtle. I was trying to make the point that it isn't the fact that Nancy Pelosi is damaging the Democrats by a poor performance before the press, but by simply showing the Democrats for the frauds they are.

    She isn't expressing the principles of the party badly, because there is almost nothing of the sort to express.

    Do you understand now?

    Re: Pelosi: Nothing more to say on her CIA allegation

    No in fact learning from past experiences that we have all seen concerning the Republican party when they are desperately trying to regain a shred of legitemacy in the political realm, when their attacks and accusations go unaswered then nothing stops them from continuous character assassinations. Same old tatics really nothing new here. In this case they are lamely trying to use Pelosi as and distraction so they(for a very short period of time)have to discuss the reality of the Bush Admin violating American and international law.

    Pelosi made them do it....

    Republicans...the world views you as pathetic liars and jokes.

    Pelosi made her statements and I agree with her. Bush's CIA lied through their teeth always and frequently.

    With attitudes like you have now how long is it going to take to regain any shred of dignity and credibility in the eyes of the world?

    Decades??

    As we all can see at this point in time Republicans have none and haven't for some time now.

    Can anyone come up with one good reason why Nancy Pelosi should care about what Ken Spain and the National Congressional Committee thinks?

    Pelosi is not a liability to the Democratic party...she is a potential source of embarressment for the party if the CIA finds some way to prove that they did not lie to her. That won't happen. She will serve out her term and the people in her constituancy will continue to appreciate the value of thier Representative being the most powerful woman in the House...and re-elect her. What is really RNC and Conservative media attempts to distract Americans from the legality of torture during the Bush adminstration will be successful. Conservative media floods the airwaves the same way Conservative and anti Obama posters flood this site with posts.

    It strikes me that Republics want back in power more than Liberals want to keep it. They are willing to exaggerate, distract, and propagandize more. I almost think sometimes we should just let the Republics take over...even if they can't get things done we won't have to hear that constant catterwalling.

    So you thought you where making mindless, partisan insults? And you failed at that too? Very impressive.
