That’s what you’d have to say after her accusations against the President. Here’s how Reuters is reporting the war of words:

Intensifying a war of words over a U.S. troop buildup in Iraq, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President George W. Bush on Friday of playing politics with soldiers’ lives, a charge the White House called “poisonous.”

“The president knows that because the troops are in harm’s way that we won’t cut off the resources,” Pelosi, head of the Democratic-led House, told ABC’s “Good Morning America. “That’s why he’s moving so quickly to put them in harm’s way.”

I’ve always understood that Ms. Pelosi is a back-stabbing lowlife but I never thought she’d go this far to lose this war. She’s the person playing politics with the war. She’s playing to the pacifist/loser wing of her party. Where else would she have gotten the audacity of accusing President Bush of putting soldiers into the line of fire for political gain? That accusation is both disgusting and illogical. It isn’t logical because the easiest way for President Bush to play politics with this situation is by pulling a Murtha, the definition of which is quitting without winning.

There isn’t a place in American politics for Pelosi’s disgusting behavior. Hubert Humphrey, Scoop Jackson and Daniel Patrick Moynihan would’ve chastised her and sent her packing for undercutting the war effort.

Another thing that shouldn’t be forgotten in all this is the role purist conservatives played in handing power to Ms. Pelosi. Let’s remember that they cast ‘protest votes’ because President Bush wasn’t conservative enough for them. Shame on them for putting power in the hands of someone like Ms. Pelosi. I wasn’t happy with spending habits or his stance on illegal immigration but there’s a war to be won, for God’s sake. Until that war is won, all the other issues take a secondary role. PERIOD.

These same holier-than-thou conservatives better not stay home in 2008 because if they do, Hillary wins, which means losing ground in the GWOT and other significant setbacks. Among the other setbacks would be to lose the judiciary for another decade. America can’t tolerate that.

Wants Our Troops “In Harm’s Way”
