You know what I LOVE about Nancy Pelosi? Her Treating Bully-In-Chief as a Spoiled Brat

7 April 2007 at 2:57:50 PM

I adored a week or two ago when she told Bush to take a deep breath after his usual, scripted, fist-pounding lies about the war. She was the picture of calm, cool collection and the contrast made Bush look even more than usual like the picture of immaturity.

With all the brouhaha about Pelosi going to Syria AT THE SAME TIME THERE WAS A REPUBLICAN GROUP THERE (!!!????!!!!!), and Cheney the Crazy Uncle's scolding of her (um. is there anyone that actually believes that guy anymore? Anyone?) for going, it was amusing to read her reaction to the Tempest in a Teapot whipped up by the Bullies R Us team.

The tone of the complaints — particularly Vice President Dick Cheney’s public characterization of her visit as “bad behavior” — contrasts sharply with the administration’s silence about a similar trip to Damascus a week ago by Republican lawmakers, Representatives Frank R. Wolf of Virginia, Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania and Robert B. Aderholt of Alabama.

Nor was there much heard from the White House about a meeting that Representative Darrell Issa, a California Republican, had with Mr. Assad on Thursday, a day after Ms. Pelosi met with the Syrian president.

Hello! The Day AFTER! Hypocrites!

First here's what Cheney said to Rush Limbaugh

“Don’t you get enraged when this kind of thing happens?” Rush Limbaugh asked Mr. Cheney during a radio interview on Thursday.

“I think it is, in fact, bad behavior on her part,” the vice president replied. “She doesn’t represent the administration. The president is the one who conducts foreign policy, not the speaker of the House.”

He forget, eh, about when Newt Gingrich did this.. and John Boehner went with him. And where's his scolding for Darryl Issa????? What Bad Behavior

The official news agency said the meeting between Assad and Darrell Issa (news, bio, voting record), a member of the House Committee on Intelligence, discussed ways to improve relations between Washington and Damascus.

"It is difficult to isolate Syria which is pivotal to finding solutions to all issues in the region," the Syrian agency quoted Assad as saying. Issa, who is of Lebanese descent, also met Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem.

Here's what those Republicans who were there, said.

Rep. Robert Aderholt of Alabama and two other Republican congressmen went to Damascus out of a moral obligation to try and stop terrorist activity that is disrupting the region and endangering American soldiers, they said Wednesday.

In their first interview after returning Wednesday morning, Aderholt and Rep. Frank Wolf of Virginia showed little concern that President Bush feared the meetings with Syrian President Bashar Assad would be counterproductive to getting Syria to change its behavior toward Israel, Iraq and Lebanon.

"We understand the president and the State Department, but we are elected representatives for our constituents and we also have a duty to speak out on these issues," Aderholt said..

Aderholt and Wolf stopped short of saying Bush's hard line policy toward Syria was expressly wrong. But they made the trip, along with Rep. Joseph Pitts of Pennsylvania.

"We don't work for the president," Aderholt said in a phone interview from Birmingham. "We want to work with him - we're in the same party - but we have an obligation to our constituents."

And so does Pelosi!

Bush also whined about Pelosi being there while neglecting (gee, did he forget?) to mention that the Repubs went at about the same time and ALSO met with the Syrian president. But that's okay, eh? Just not a Democrat doing it? Anyway, Pelosi compared what Bush and Cheney said to small children having tantrums.

“I come back thinking, all right, we will get through their tantrum,” Ms. Pelosi said, in a reference to the administration, “but the fact is, we accomplished what we set out to do. I think we improved the understanding among the different parties.”

Also here's Mahablog on that.

P.S. Here's Cheney hiding in the bushes at Spoiled-in-Chief's press conference the other day. Not sure where his minder is.
