Good Grief ~ Pelosi

I LOVE this look President Bush is throwing to Pelosi! LMAO

Pelosi threat to sue Bush over Iraq bill
The Hill .....for complete article

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is threatening to take President Bush to court if he issues a signing statement as a way of sidestepping a carefully crafted compromise Iraq war spending bill.

Pelosi recently told a group of liberal bloggers, “We can take the president to court” if he issues a signing statement, according to Kid Oakland, a blogger who covered Pelosi’s remarks for the liberal website
“The president has made excessive use of signing statements and Congress is considering ways to respond to this executive-branch overreaching,” a spokesman for Pelosi, Nadeam Elshami, said. “Whether through the oversight or appropriations process or by enacting new legislation, the Democratic Congress will challenge the president’s non-enforcement of the laws.”

Democrats floated other ideas during yesterday’s weekly caucus meeting. Rep. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) suggested that the House consider a measure to rescind the 2002 authorization for the war in Iraq. Several senators and Democratic presidential candidates recently have proposed that idea.

“There was a ripple around the room” in support of the idea, said Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.).

In the 1970s, congressional Democrats tried to get the courts to force President Nixon to stop bombing in Cambodia. The courts ruled that dissident lawmakers could not sue solely to obtain outcomes they could not secure in Congress.

In order to hear an argument, a federal court would have to grant what is known as “standing,” meaning that lawmakers would have to show that Bush is willfully ignoring a bill Congress passed and that he signed into law.

The House would have to demonstrate what is called “injury in fact.” A court might accept the case if “it is clear that the legislature has exhausted its ability to do anything more,” a former general counsel to the House of Representatives, Stanley Brand, said.

Lawmakers have tried to sue presidents in the past for taking what they consider to be illegal military action, but courts have rejected such suits.

Wild Thing's comment......

I have never in my life been to or DU. No need to there is plenty of their BS online everywhere else for me to see. This Pelosi is a nut case along with the others. The one named Woosley really makes me furious that she is in any kind of leadership. She is a full fledged communist asshole.

Pelosi and company will fight this all the way to hell, caring nothing about our troops. With regard to her recent trip to Syria, she should be prosecuted under the Layton Act and the State Department should revoke her passport immediately. This loose cannon needs to be permanently de-wheeled, and tucked away in a well padded room.

Looking back and not so long ago.....from the Washington Times

“After calling herself “the most powerful woman in America,” Mrs. Pelosi flexed her right muscle like a weight lifter to much applause at an event yesterday titled a “women’s tea.” “All right, let’s hear it for the power,” she screamed.”

And get this I heard on Fox News....................OMG!

Nancy Pelosi announcing that she is passing a bill to have the CIA work on Global Warming as a threat. Global Freakin Warming !!!!!!!

With everything we are facing, with the FBI busting Jihadis TODAY in NJ, she wants the CIA to waste time on Global Warming.

Nazi's a goofball.
She has one thing in mind and she's mad because it
isn't working.
She wants to be in charge so bad that she'll do anything and everything to get it without thinking about what this will do to America.
She makes me sick and I wonder if people are thinking that ALL powerful women act this way.

You are so right Lynn, and Pelosi has many more just like her in the wings of Congress, some are women too, she has her mentor, Bernie Sanders, in the Senate with her, thanks to Vermont. No, Nancy Reagan , Barbara Bush , Laura Bush and Lynne Cheney come across as leading women, capable without a bent on super power, nor the totalitarian thirst for control with a total disregard for the nations well being.

Maybe Pelosi will work against Hillary. If Hellery were to win the presidency, droopy-eyed Nancy would be lowered to Second-most-powerful-woman-in-America status. Maybe we will get a real hen fight going. I have seen no indication that these two women have any respect for each other.

Alittle something from a long time ago...

Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged."--Abe Lincoln

What is Bush saying to her, "Your panties bunched up again ?"

Posted by: Mark at May 9, 2007 06:13 PM

Looks like W is askin' Nan if she's up to playin' chicken.

W: "I'm gonna veto the bill and issue a signing statement."

Nan: "I'll sue."

W: "Alrighty then. Game on. See ya in court."
