Nancy's Drawing The Curtain
The emperor has no clothes,' Pelosi, D-California, told reporters on Thursday. 'When are people going to face the reality? Pull this curtain back.'Finally, someone with the 'balls' to call it what it is and throw it back in their faces when they try to misdirect by claiming it's opposition that undermines his laughable abilities. Go Nancy!
"The situation in Iraq and the reckless economic policies in the United States speak to one issue for me, and that is the competence of our leader," Pelosi said. "These policies are not working. But speaking specifically to Iraq, we have a situation where -- without adequate evidence -- we put our young people in harm's way."
Asked specifically if she was calling Bush incompetent, Pelosi replied:
"I believe that the president's leadership in the actions taken in Iraq demonstrate an incompetence in terms of knowledge, judgment and experience in making the decisions that would have been necessary to truly accomplish the mission without the deaths to our troops and the cost to our taxpayers."
Pelosi did not back down, even when asked if her comments would undermine Bush's abilities as commander in chief.
"His activities, his decisions, the results of his actions are what undermines his leadership, not my statement," Pelosi said. "My statements are just a statement of fact."
