RUSH: Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans yesterday, saying they want the Iraq war to drag on and are ignoring the public’s priorities. ‘They like this war. They want this war to continue,’ said Pelosi. Madam Speaker, you, of all the great competence in the House of Representatives, let me tell you what we want. When I say we, I mean the American people. We want to win. We want victory. We don’t put timelines on it. We’re in the process of winning. The surge is working, and once again you attempt to undermine the very progress that you have sought to impede from the get-go. If you’re going to run around, Ms. Pelosi, and you’re going to say Republicans like the war, then can we also assume that Democrats like killing babies? Put that in whatever it is you smoke, Ms. Pelosi, and have fun with it.
I know the answer to this, folks, but speaking of Ms. Pelosi and, nevertheless, why is the war no longer on the front pages or leading the broadcast news? We know the answer, but is it not still a disgrace? The libs are never, ever, held to account, not for those efforts of theirs to lose the war, not for their disastrous entitlement and welfare policies, not for their monopoly control of public education. Never, they are never, held to account.
