Having opened up a can of worms with her accusation that the CIA regularly misleads (i.e., lies to) Congress, which I hear is a federal felony, Ms. Pelosi today refused to utter a single word on the subject, other than to say that she stands by her statement but will say no more about it
. Seems to me she's decided, having dodged the Congressional investigation bullet thanks to a compliant Democratic caucus, to hunker down and wait for the storm to blow over. While that may be the politically safe thing to do, especially since she can't seem to get her story straight on the details of what she knew and when, it is cowardice of the first order. Is this the person we want to be two heartbeats away from the Presidency?
Not in my USA.
Lots of cowardice, too on the part of the compliant media, who apparently accepted Pelosi's stonewalling without making a fuss. Not to mention Democrat members of Congress who know in their hearts that an accusation of a crime by the Speaker of the House of Representatives really needs to be followed to the end, but who don't have the guts to demand it because of party loyalty. What about loyalty to the United States of America?
I'm getting to the point of believing we'd have a better government by picking 535 people at random from the voter rolls to serve in the House and Senate than the professionally pusillanimous pimps we have now.
