Nancy Pelosi - Then and Now

Nancy Pelosi was, of course, very correct in 2006. How quickly whe has forgotten.

Dissent is the very heart of democracy and freedom.

As Camille Paglia so wisely stated in her column yesterday, "And what do Democrats stand for, if they are so ready to defame concerned citizens as the "mob" -- a word betraying a Marie Antoinette delusion of superiority to ordinary mortals. I thought my party was populist, attentive to the needs and wishes of those outside the power structure. And as a product of the 1960s, I thought the Democratic party was passionately committed to freedom of thought and speech."

I already dealt with your use of Paglia in yesterday's column.

This morning it came to me why Pelosi is so vilified by the GOP: she acts like a Republican. She fights and defends her turf - not like too many Democrats.

Pelosi is vilified for what she does on a bi-partisan basis.

Bob Keller said...

Pelosi is vilified by members of both parties and all parts of the political spectrum because she has absolutely no integrity, no honor and no honesty.

Pelosi is not the perfect leader of the House. I would prefer Dennis Kucinich. But Pelosi will do. She is vilified more by the right than by the left. That's good enough for me.

Vigilante likes leaders with absolutely no integrity, no honor and no honesty?
