Fun to watch dogs bite their owner's hand.

Never thought I'd see the day Pelosi isn't liberal enough. The world is changing before my eyes.

Post Re: Pelosi booed by activists after criticizing leaker Edward Snowden

Anybody think about the flip side to this coin?

Some liberals will actually recognize Snowden's actions of outing the NSA spying on U.S. citizens as a good thing. They will voice that opinion.

On the conservative side, ...
Is it crickets?

And then you have conservatives complaining it's "not liberal enough"...
... which implies that supporting the exposing of the government's spying on its citizenry as a "liberal" thing.
If that's "liberal", does that mean spying on American citizenry is "conservative"?

Interesting...


Given examples like Tom DeLay and Ted Stevens, I don't think I would put too much of a spotlight on the issue if I were you...




What does the phrase "Pelosi is getting off light" mean to you?
Stevens is in jail, Delay is free on bond pending appeal after being convicted. Nancy, on the other hand, just keeps getting reelected.

You do see the difference?

foundit66 -- I don't like it when EITHER party does it. I just kind of kind of find the Republican side (most of the time) the less nasty side of a dirty coin.
Since effectively there are only two parties in the U.S. we have to choose the lesser of two evils. And no I don't always vote Republican.

The boos of left wing activists don't bother Pelosi at all, she is from a safe district. Of course safe districts are enemies of progress when they are Republicans.
republicans are safe due to gerrymandering. More dems voted than repubs in last congressional race but repubs took the house. As far as pelosi criticizing bush, big deal. The bigger deal for you repubs is she took impeachment of bush off the table. Really lots to be happy about if you're a republican.

Larry, this is silly. Votes are counted by district by state, not nationally so no matter how many Dems or Repubs voted, in a local race, only local votes count.
