Before the “team” is even in office, new quarterback for the US House, Nancy Pelosi has attempted to her first long throw pass….backing John Murtha for House Majority Leader over the more qualified Steny Hoyer! Her long throw missed and Rep. Hoyer was elected by a clear victory of 149-86.
With the apparent great divide within the Democratic party, between the far left liberals and the more conservative Blue Dogs, Nancy Pelosi would have been well served to stay out of the “public eye” regarding any endorsement in her soon-to-be new quarterback role.
It becomes laughable to the public when Pelosi begins spouting her “ethics reform” and “root out corruption” speeches and then announces her endorsement for John Murtha, apparently putting her personal feelings ahead of the Party.
John Murtha if far from lilly white and doesn’t even come close to “egg-shell”…..he has been involved in corruption as far back as 26 years ago in the Abscam bribery sting (although not convicted), to abusing his power on the House Appropriations Committee giving contracts to companies his brother and former aide were involved with. In fact CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics Reform), a left-leaning progressive group, Honorably named Murtha to their 20 most corrupt Members of Congress list (which has only 4 democrats listed) and “slammed” Pelosi for her endorsement. Murtha is also infamous for calling for an immediate withdrawl from Iraq since the war is “unwinable” and calling our Marine soldiers “killers”. How John Murtha continues to be elected by the people of Pennsylvania is absolutely amazing to me!!
So…back to the quarterback, Nancy Pelosi, with her first loss before even becoming Speaker of the House…what else can we look forward to? Will her personal agenda continue to outway the good of our country? She has already shown that her “promises” were apparently only for the campaign trail and she will revert back to the “screaming liberal” we all know her to truly be!!!
A note to Nancy Pelosi and the Dems…We the American People will be watching!!
For some great reading to go Wake Up America.
