If there is one thing I admire about Mrs. Pelosi is how clean her toes are:
WASHINGTON (AP ) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans on Thursday, saying they want the Iraq war to drag on and are ignoring the public’s priorities. “They like this war. They want this war to continue,” Pelosi, D- Calif., told reporters. She expressed frustration over Republicans’ ability to force majority Democrats to yield ground on taxes, spending, energy, war spending and other matters.“We thought that they shared the view of so many people in our country that we needed a new direction in Iraq,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference in the Capitol. “But the Republicans have made it very clear that this is not just George Bush’s war. This is the war of the Republicans in Congress.”
Mrs. Pelosi needs to learn some basics. Sane people do not like war. Rather rational people accept that sometimes war is to the worst alternative of several bad alternatives.
