Nancy Pelosi Waterboards Herself With Lies!

In a stunning display of desperation, Speaker Nancy Pelosi dug herself deeper into the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques debate and possibly signed her political death warrant with the accusation that the CIA are liars.

With blatant spinning and parsing like I have never seen before, Pelosi, gave a very nervous and stuttering performance defending herself against very strong allegations that she has been lying

This is now the third version Nancy is throwing out there to see if it sticks. With her own staffer demanding more answers, Nancy is feeling the heat. Perhaps being cornered with her lies, is what led her to accuse the CIA of lying to Congress and thus sign her the death certificate to her political career. She even calls for the CIA to release details of the briefing. I suspect that Pelosi is counting on this information being too sensitive to national security to be released. Otherwise, she would be a fool to stick her neck out that far.

The CIA will no doubt release or leak, details of the 2002 briefing. I expect to see the minutes of that briefing showing what exactly was told to Pelosi at that time. With each release, Pelosi will spin a new version of her story and end up looking like a bigger liar than she does now.

None of this would be happening if Pelosi and the Democrats had not decided to classify waterboarding as torture in order to score political points against the Bush Administration. I believe that they were only concerned with short term results of electing a Democratic president and adding numbers to Congress. They must have counted on the election of Obama to smooth over all the hurt feelings. Instead they have members of the far left clamoring to see Bush and Cheney in orange jumpers and are willing to throw her under the bus to get it.

A full verson of Pelosi's press conference can be found at the link below. It is worth watching.

Got it in one. The Democrats' attempt to make things even worse than they currently are for the Republicans has backfired and Pelosi is caught in the line of fire.

Notice Hillary Clinton's and President Obama's silence on the matter?

Anyone would think that they're quite content to watch Nancy crash and burn...

You and I must be on the same thought plane.

I see this as the beginning of the end. It may not be long before the Democrats approach her about her Speakers position. They do not want to give the Republicans fuel for their fire and she is doing just that.

What I see is B-Rock distancing himself from her too. Letting her swing in the wind by herself.

I agree those CIA documents will get out. Those guys are tired of risking their lives and freedom for those who seek to punish what most of us don't have the stomach to do.

BTW, Clifton - thank you for adding me to your blogroll, have done likewise.

Track A 'Crat:

I had mused about Obama's motives for releasing the EIT memos in the first place. I had wondered if he wanted to cause damage to Nasty Pelosi. The Clintons have been laying low big time.

I strongly believe that the first sign of Obama crashing, Hillary will jump ship and run against him in 2012.

BTW, how could I not add you to by blog roll after that awesome pic of Michelle Belle?

Ron B:

We certainly do think alike Ron. I too get the feeling that the Dems are leaving her out there in no man's land.

The CIA WILL sink her boat. The only question is, will they kill her quick with a blizzard of details or let her die by a thousand cuts with daily "leaks".

I can only hope that you're right Clifton.

With Leon Panetta in charge at the CIA, I am concerned about how steadfastly that agency will move against perhaps the most incompetent Speaker of the House America's ever had.
