Pelosi – Two Heart Beats Away (update)

Wow … just that thought should make you cringe and wish both Obama and Biden a long life (or at least a “long enough life”).

Jennifer Rubin, as usual, has an excellent update on the disasterous Pelosi presser yesterday. I’ve got to tell you, watching this woman at work almost makes you pine for good old incompetent and inept Denny Hastert.

UPDATE: CIA Director Leon Panetta, in a memo to members of the CIA, implies Ms. Pelosi is being less than honest about what she knew about waterboarding:

Panetta, President Obama’s pick to run the clandestine agency and President Clinton’s former chief of staff, wrote in a memo to CIA employees Friday that “CIA officers briefed truthfully on the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, describing ‘the enhanced techniques that had been employed,'” according to CIA records.

“We are an agency of high integrity, professionalism and dedication,” Panetta said in the memo. “Our task is to tell it like it is — even if that’s not what people always want to hear. Keep it up. Our national security depends on it.”

  • eh, after enduring the sight of Lord Voldemort ONE heartbeat away, everything else is cake.

    • Crimminy Pedro, I have to agree with a that one.  Never have liked that man.

  • Yes, SanFran Nan certainly had a Queeg moment yesterday.  The only thing missing was her rolling a pair of ball bearings in her hand while ranting about strawberries.

    In the end, though, it probably won’t matter: MiniTru will run interference for her, the trash she controls in Congress will continue to harp about Bush (snarl!) to deflect attention from their crimes and blundering, and the buffoons who vote for the trash will continue to do so, convinced that their choice is not only better than the alternative, but downright virtuous.

  • And what is so interesting about this case is that Senator Kit Bond of Missouri says that he saw the notes on the Goss-Pelosi briefing, and that it mentions that she was told that waterboarding was used, and that she asked the CIA briefer if “more could be done” by the Congress to help the CIA get more information out of the terrorists who were being, er, waterboarded.

    My prediction? Within 2 months, Pelosi will be shown to be a complete liar, and Democrats, who will feel the heat of losing the “torture” issue as well as their congressional majority, will start to call for her resignation.

    Can we all say “Speaker Steny Hoyer”? Because it is coming, as good as it came when Jim Wright had to be thrown over the side in favor of Tom Foley, who drove the Democrats into the wilderness that lasted for 12 years.

    • If we lived in a sensible country, and democrats (spit) possessed even a hint of honesty and integrity, I’d agree with you.  However, these things aren’t the case.  Two words:

      “Move on.”
