Latest Pelosi boondoggle?
Shrieker Pelosi Heads to Haiti: Why?By John Lillpop Friday, February 12, 2010
As if the poor people of Haiti have not suffered enough, Nancy Pelosi, Shrieker of the US House, is headed to their god-forsaken island in a gesture that can only add to the misery while loading a few hundred billion more deficit dollars on the backs on American taxpayers.
As reported at seattlepi.com, in part:
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a 12-member congressional delegation to Haiti Friday to assess ways to aid the recovery from a devastating earthquake.
“Pelosi, D-Calif., said the five senators and seven representatives would examine reconstruction efforts and consider long-term assistance for Haiti.
“Sen. George LeMieux of Florida is the sole Republican in the group. Other participants include Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Health Committee; House Ways and Means Committee chairman Charles Rangel, D-N.Y.; House Transportation Committee chairman James Oberstar, D-Minn.; and House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich.”
Why would anyone in his or her right mind dump characters like Charles Rangel and John Conyers on an unsuspecting populace, and do so in the name of bringing “long term assistance” to the needy?
Surely, there must be another, less charitable reason for Pelosi’s latest boondoggle?
Hint: Washington, D.C. is uninhabitable because of snow and rumors of snow.
Record amounts of snow have done what Republicans have tried, unsuccessfully, to so for months—shut down this Marxist government in order to preserve American liberty and wealth!
It is as though God has had enough and has decided to use snow as a filibuster agent!
Meanwhile, the five day forecast for Port-au-Prince,
Perhaps Pelosi is on another “mission” to save the planet from climate change and, given the fact that Washington, D.C. is frozen solid, Madam Shrieker is taking her message to a locale with weather more consistent with her nut ball theories?
After her smashing success in Copenhagen last December, Pelosi has probably found an extra million dollars or so to waste on alcohol and frivolity in Haiti.
She would term it a “humanitarian stimulus” bill for the tourism market in Port-au-Prince, and some leftists would actually believer her.
Or is Pelosi trying to ace out former President Bill Clinton for some free PR and headlines now that he is sidelined by that heart surgery?
Whatever Pelosi’s sinister motive might be, President Obama needs to step in and save America’s reputation.
Why not apologize for Pelosi’s foolish behavior, Mr. President, since compulsive apologizing for American politicians and policies seems to be in your DNA?
