No, Nancy, not a Global Warming committee!

Okay, let’s form a committee to create a solution for something that is an unproven theory just because it will appease the voters who are royally pissed about the aquiesence of funds for the troop surge. Yeah, that’s the ticket! And while you’re at it, Nancy, can you create a committee for Rain Follows the Plow? Just another way we humans influence climate.

Pelosi Creates Global Warming Committee

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought to create a special committee Thursday in an effort to jump-start long-delayed government efforts to deal with global warming and produce a bill by Independence Day.

Pelosi, D-Calif., said the committee would hold hearings and recommend legislation on how to reduce greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide generated by fossil fuels, that most scientists blame for a gradual warming of the earth’s climate.

“I promise to do everything in my power to achieve energy independence … and to stop global warming,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi set a goal of the Fourth of July for finishing a global warming bill that would “truly declare our energy independence.”

Wow, Independence day will be the day we declare our energy independence. So, will we be building more nuclear power plants?

Pelosi won’t block funds for surge – DU feels betrayed

Why was this announcement an ABC/Diane Sawyer exclusive? Was she afraid to announce this among her peers?

Exclusive: Pelosi Won’t Block Funding to Stop Iraq Troop Surge, Even Though Situation Is a ‘Tragedy’

Nancy Pelosi Tells ABC News’ Diane Sawyer Bush “Has to Answer for This War”

Jan. 19, 2007 — There may be a growing battle between Congress and the president over the Iraq War strategy, but new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she won’t block funding for additional troops.

Pelosi’s position, revealed in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, came days after a group of senators announced a bipartisan resolution condemning the Bush administration’s plan to increase U.S. forces in Iraq by more than 20,000 troops.

While the Senate resolution would be non-binding, it would send a message to the president, and at least a dozen Republican senators have already offered their support.

In an interview with Sawyer, Pelosi said Democrats in Congress would not be held responsible for putting the soldiers in the troop surge in additional harm’s way by blocking funds, but also called the situation in Iraq a “tragedy” and a “stark blunder.”

I did a little DUmpster diving (Democratic Underground) and it seems that the DUers are feeling unraveled and a bit betrayed by Ms. Pelosi and her party:

Its called “Being betrayed by your Democratic Leadership”…

And thats exactly what is happening.The people voted Democratic because that seemed the only way to express disapproval of the course the country is on.It was the only alternative available.It will do no good because,just like the Republicans,the Dems represent the interests of big business/finance that want this war.These people,these CORPORATE DEMOCRATS,serve the interests of big business.Lieberman,Clinton,Pelosi are of the same ilk.They do not,they will not serve the interests of the people,they do not respond to or respect the will of the people.Maybe Obama…maybe Obama…

So it seems that Barack Obama is the new savior of the Democrat party. Maybe Obama indeed…

But Condi, you have no children…

Babs Boxer bows below the belt and pulls a Jersey Girl ploy.

Rice appeared before the Senate in defense of President Bush’s tactical change in Iraq, and quickly encountered Boxer.

“Who pays the price? I’m not going to pay a personal price,” Boxer said. “My kids are too old, and my grandchild is too young.”

Then, to Rice: “You’re not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family.”

Breathtaking.

Simply breathtaking.

We scarcely know where to begin.

The junior senator from California apparently believes that an accomplished, seasoned diplomat, a renowned scholar and an adviser to two presidents like Condoleezza Rice is not fully qualified to make policy at the highest levels of the American government because she is a single, childless woman.

In other words, Miss Rice can have no opinion and she cannot respond. The typical liberal ploy to discredit someone with whom a liberal cannot debate – tell them their opinion doesn’t count and therefore, “shut up.”
Again, who is electing these people?

Update: I must admit, I enjoyed Rush’s turn of phrase: “. . . below the ovaries.”
