    House to clip Nancy Pelosci's wings

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will not be permitted to use State Department funds to travel to nations that are known to have sponsored terrorism if a Republican amendment to appropriations legislation passes the House today. Let's hope they succeeded.

    It would be nice to pass that--Don't hold your breath though.
    I can just hear the hand-wringers now saying we're trampling all over her first amendment rights.

    Bush would not talk to some M E countries until Pelosi visited them. Now he is talking to them. So let's hope the proposed bill fails. You cannot hope to improve things if no one talks. So give her some credit.

    What an odd view.
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Yeah, since Shrub's foreign policy has been a disaster, it was time to let the adults take over.

    Rep. King's amendment is nothing more than a spoiled brat whining about political matters.

    Typical Conservlican behavior. They are more concerned with fabricating political tempests than looking out for the best interests of the country.


    Just in........King's titty-baby amendment was crushed this morning.

    Even a majority of the Republicans voted against King's tantrum induced amendment.
    Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a whiff of science or a dose of common sense.

    Do you follow the the news reports? If so you should remember just a few weeks ago Pelosi visited Iran and other M E countries and held talks with their representatives. This created much angst and turmoil on the right. Since then the administration has engaged the same countries in talks. Sooo !
    In 2001 Bush stated he would not get involved in the Palestinian problem.Now he is talking to Hamas, hoping to weaken Fatah.
    This forum is not the best source for news. IMHO

    what part of the "problem" did he say he would avoid? Was that not when the infamous terrorist Arafat was still nibbling on cheese and running the maze?

    So, just asking here. Do y'all think the Supreme Court Justices should go on diplomatic/negotiating trips to ME countries?
    The branch of government one is in dictates the appropriateness of such act. Pelosi is NOT in the appropriate branch to be making such trips.
    Bush and company didn't go because she went first--get a clue people. No, this is in no way a first or even good source of news. But, I don't consider the evening news to be the best either!

    The point is, there are discussions being held. Someone has to start the dialog.
    Conditions change and the leaders have to calibrate programs and plans.
    For example, the Military is currently is arming and cooperating with Sunnis that in all probability have killed our troopers. This is being done to combat increased Shiite violence. They are now talking!
    Regarding Pelosi's trip to the M E. She was preceded weeks earlier by Republican Congressmen holding their own discussions. These political junkets have been a part of our elected reps for many years. So nothing new there.
    I personally believe we have some who cannot handle the fact that a WOMAN
    is currently in a leadership position that has traditionally been held by males.
