Once again, Pelosi’s fervid brain has wandered off without a chaperone.
Via Hot Air.
“I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” Pelosi said to laughter, during a sit-down with reporters. “I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol … If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.” …
Asked on what grounds she could have arrested Rove, Pelosi replied, “Oh, any number. But there were some specific ones for his being in contempt of Congress. But we didn’t.” …
“This is just strictly political,” she said. “It’s just the irresponsibility of the Republicans. We want jobs. Why are they spending this time doing this?” …
“‘Loose cannon’ would sort of be like such a compliment to Darrell Issa. ‘Loose cannon’ would be a moderate phrase. This is an explosive device,” she said. “It doesn’t serve our country, and it undermines the true purpose of contempt of Congress.”
You had ‘numerous’ crimes that Karl Rove supposedly committed, but you never had him arrested? I would have loved to see you try. The judiciary committee voted contempt, but it was never voted on by the whole House, so Nancy is full of shit. The White House offered to make Rove available in private session, which they agreed to in Feb 2009.
Karl Rove responds:
“For Deputy Nancy to have arrested me and thrown me in her one-cell jail, the Congress would have had to hold me in contempt,” said Rove. He said that in 2007, the judiciary committee voted to recommend to the House that he be held in contempt, but the House didn’t adopt the resolution.
“It’s nice to know that she dreams of putting me in her little jail, sort of like Barney Fife getting her little one bullet and carrying around the big gun, but we’re still a nation of laws, we’re not an authoritarian regime in which people in position of power, like the former Speaker of the House of Representatives could have thrown me in jail,” he charged.
Nancy’s “arrest” wet dream has to do with the DemLeft hissy fits over the Valerie Plame “outing”, which was one of the worst kept secrets in Washington D.C. Everyone including Bob Woodward (yeah, that Bob Woodward) knew about her CIA job.
And we’re supposed to believe that Darrell Issa is a “loose cannon” for seeking justice because of Holder and Obama’s gunrunning crimes.
Of course, Nancy would never play around with politics. During her reign of terror as Speaker of the House, she and her Dem cohorts committed a shitload of contempt against the Constitution and the American people.
Speaking of numerous crimes:
Judicial Watch acquired documents that show Pelosi misappropriated taxpayer funds to the tune of $2,100,744.59 over a two-year period:
$101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol. For example, purchases for one Pelosi-led congressional delegation traveling from Washington, DC, through Tel Aviv, Israel to Baghdad, Iraq May 15-20, 2008 included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewar’s scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.
Pelosi was also caught up in the insider trading scandal.
“Pelosi and her husband, Paul, with a net worth estimated at $40 million, bought shares in the initial public offering of credit-card company Visa Inc. in 2008, when Pelosi was speaker of the House… They bought the shares just before legislation died that would have limited the fees credit-card issuers could charge retailers. The shares more than doubled in the next two months.”
Pelosi is listed as one of D.C.s Ten Most Corrupt Politicians.
The former Dem majority trampled right over the Constitution to ram ObamaCare through the legislature. They created the oppressive socialist mandate behind closed doors, away from the public, and spewed epithets at those who objected, especially the Tea Party.
They made sure their SEIU pals got a special deal for payoffs and tax exemptions.
After RINO Arlen Specter switched parties, giving the Dems a majority in the Senate, Pelsosi declared: “Now we can get things done without explaining process.” Absolute tyranny.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act passed in 2010, gives federal regulators the authority to seize private firms they feel are in danger of default. It’s the exclamation point to the socialist ”stimulus/bailout” government takeover of 2/3rds of the auto industry, banks, and insurance companies.
Obama actually considers himself to be his own government; able to bypass Congress and the Constitution to make his own rules. He leaked classified information, including the operational secrets about getting Bin Laden, and as a result, the Paki doctor who served as an informant got thrown under the bus. He also leaked secret information about the U.S.-Israeli cyberwarfare against Iran and the use of drones to target and kill muzzie terrorists.
Obama, Holder, Napolitano, and other corrupt members of Pelosi’s party have committed enough criminal offenses to land them in prison for years.
Speaker John Boehner should have a fucking stack of arrest warrants already. With Nancy’s at the top of the heap.
