Pelosi's agenda

From this article:

Her first 100 hours:

All the days after that: "Pay as you go," meaning no increasing the deficit, whether the issue is middle class tax relief, health care or some other priority.

Not long before sitting down for a lunchtime interview, she turned down a suggestion from Speaker Dennis Hastert that they jointly appoint former FBI Director Louie Freeh to recommend improvements in the page program.

"That was about protecting their majority" rather than the pages, she said dismissively.

Instead, she wants to put Hastert and other Republicans under oath and make them say what they knew of Foley's actions, when they learned it and what they did to stop him.

The potential for political gain is clear to her.

"It's an opportunity for growth among women" for the Democrats, she said. "They don't always vote and this could be a motivation."

With married women, in particular, it's a huge issue, she added.

Among older voters, too.

"If there's an ethical issue, seniors take a hike" and abandon politicians they blame, she said.

"If we hold onto seniors we win the election."


I love the party of the Clinton blow job in the Oval Office trying to point the finger at Republicans like Democrats are some kind of purists. Bottom line is - we are all human. There are fallable people in BOTH parties and they should be punished. Clinton WAS NOT PUNISHED for doing something that ANY CEO IN AMERICA would have been lambasted for. This is way more of a travesty than the act itself and then he continued on to LIE about it, tried to get Monica to lie about it, perjured himself. Yet we let him stay our President. So I don't want to hear any of this "better than thou" from Democrats over Mark Foley. People should be held accountable for their actions REGARDLESS of their political party and the political party should not be held accountable for the actions of a few. We need to treat situations on a case by case basis. No party can say they have only politicians who do no wrong. We all know that is a sack of lies right there.

So Democrats, please stop making an issue out of this to further your political agenda.
