The Democrats, presidential candidate Barack Obama and house speaker Nancy Pelosi, have been in talks with the Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, regarding ending the Iraq war, President Bush deceitfully got the nation involved in.
President Bush and his advisors are against ending it…but who cares. America cannot afford to continue spending massive sums of money per day on a fruitless war. That level of spending would break the strongest of nations, launching it into bankruptcy.
Pelosi calls for high-level meeting with Iraqis
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama now has a major ally in his push for a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki tells a German outlet that he’d like to see troops leave “as soon as possible, as far as we are concerned.” He then added: “U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama is right when he talks about 16 months.”…
“So with the prime minister saying it’s time for you to go,” she told the crowd, “I think it’s time for our country to sit down with the Iraqis and work that plan out. [We need to be] respectful of what the prime minister says, and respectful of the will of the American people, who have been against this war for a long time…[We should] have a high-level meeting with the Iraqis to work out the terms of our deployment out of Iraq…So, the end could be in sight.”
Bush adviser says Iraq timeline “very dangerous”
Sun Jul 20, 2008 1:37pm EDT – WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President George W. Bush’s top military adviser said on Sunday setting an unconditional two-year timetable for getting U.S. troops out of Iraq in two years would be dangerous.
George Bush to Nancy Pelosi: do you really think I’m going to give you those files. What do you think this is, a Democracy! This is the United States Of Bush. I don’t answer to anyone.
Further proving his presidency is not a transparent one, some argue it’s not even legal, and goes against everything the Constitution symbolizes, President Bush has corruptly blocked Congress from viewing FBI files regarding the Valerie Plame case.
During said case, President Bush and his VP, Dick Cheney, vindictively outed an undercover American C.I.A. agent, Valerie Plame, which is a criminal offense under U.S. law. Now comes the cover up in hiding the documents from Congress.
Nancy Pelosi: I’m only going to tell you one time. Give me those files, George.
President Bush, that’s now how a democracy operates. You need to furnish Congress with the files. What message are you sending the world when you assert privilege to cover what everyone knows is illegal conduct. Who do you really think you’re fooling.
Really, what’s the worst that could happen…Dick Cheney goes to jail (smirk). What? I can’t smirk. Dick Cheney smirks all the time. Probably smirks in his sleep. He certainly smirked during the State of the Nation speech when Bush brought up oil. You know he was thinking “cha ching!” (money).
White House Blocks Release of FBI Files
Privilege Is Cited in CIA Leak Case – The White House yesterday blocked a House committee’s attempt to obtain internal FBI reports about the leak of a CIA officer’s identity, asserting that notes from interviews of Vice President Cheney and other administration officials are protected by executive privilege.
I Feel The Love In The Room (Ok, No)
Pelosi to Bush : thanks for nothing!
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has deemed President George W. Bush “A total failure.” Ouch! She cited his unpopularity with the American people as evidence, along with his dismal record. He lied to and let down so many people. He abused the public’s trust in him.
I have to admit, in going over the Bush presidency, I cannot find one thing he did that turned out okay. I cannot find one definitive moment that will cause history to remember him well. His legacy is gone and so is the Bush name.
House Speaker Pelosi calls Bush ‘a total failure’
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush has been a “total failure” in everything from the economy to the war to energy policy, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday. In an interview on CNN, the California Democrat was asked to respond to video of the president criticizing the Democratic-led Congress for heading into the final 26 days of the legislative session without having passed a single government spending bill.
Pelosi shot back in unusually personal terms.
“You know, God bless him, bless his heart, president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject,” Pelosi replied. She then tsk-tsked Bush for “challenging Congress when we are trying to sweep up after his mess over and over and over again.”
Signs Through 2016
According to Drudge Report, controversial radio personality Rush Limbaugh has bagged a $400 million deal to stay on the radio for 8 more years. Some will smile at this news and some will cry.
I’m thinking Nancy Pelosi will not be happy at this latest blurb, as her “Fairness Doctrine” has been labeled the “Hush Rush” bill.
While, Limbaugh says racial things I don’t agree, this is America and Free Speech is apart of the law of the land. And thus, no one should be trying to shut anyone up.

Divide And Conquer
Rush Limbaugh’s “Operation Chaos” has been credited with sowing disunity in the Democratic Party, when he urged Republicans to vote for Hillary Clinton in the primaries to drag out the race.
While his effect is being debated, it is worth noting that tens of thousands of Republicans temporarily switched parties to vote for Hillary Clinton in the primaries once John McCain was the established nominee.
Hillary did her part as well with an own goal that plagued the Democratic Party with confusion and division for several crucial months.
LIMBAUGH SIGNS THROUGH 2016; $400 MILLION DEAL SHATTERS BROADCAST RECORDS
Wed Jul 02 2008 09:02:18 ET – The American broadcast industry is rocked, realigned and blasted into a new orbit, yet again, by Rush Limbaugh, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
In what is being described as an unprecedented radio contract, Limbaugh will keep his syndicated show on-the-air and e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e through 2016 with CLEAR CHANNEL and PREMIERE RADIO.
Already host of the most lucrative hours since radio’s inception, Limbaugh’s total package is valued north of $400 million, according to media insiders.
Where Hillary Clinton could have exited the 2008 U.S. presidential race with some dignity, she has instead chosen complete immaturity and lack of class. She has opted to suspend her campaign, not concede and end it.
Barack Obama and wife Michelle
As a result, prominent DNC members, Senators Dean, Pelosi and Reid, set a June 6, 2008 deadline for all superdelegates to render their votes, in a bid to solidify the nomination of Democratic winner Barack Obama, who John McCain awaits.
You know that’s what she’s been doing since she lost, right. Hillary, put the liquor down.
It’s sad that they had to do this to force Hillary to accept she did not win the nomination, by any means. It marks a very undignified end to her campaign that was chock full of dirty tricks.
Dean, Pelosi, Reid set Friday deadline for superdelegates’ choices, move to force end to Clinton bid
With the final primary concluded barely hours before, top Democratic Party leaders in Washington early this morning ratcheted up the pressure to force all remaining uncommitted superdelegates to make their choice of candidate known by Friday — and thus end the now hopeless, one-time frontrunning campaign of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean is among top party leaders setting a Friday deadline for superdelegates to endorse Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama
The joint statement was obviously pre-planned and timed for issue shortly after Clinton refused to concede the presidential nomination’s victory to Barack Obama, who’s gained sufficient delegates to clinch the party’s nomination.

It appears the voters and Democratic Party management have made their minds up regarding who they want for the post. The people have spoken.

Put the alcohol down Hillary. It’s not a good look.

Did Anyone Bother To Tell Hillary That
Democrats Howard Dean, not to be confused with Jimmy Dean, and Nancy Pelosi, not to be confused with Nancy Sinatra, are vowing to wrap up the Democratic nomination by next month.

This news comes in spite of Hillary Clinton’s protests that it go on through August (and Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Years and Valentine’s Day and Easter).
Top Dems to push for swift end to primary race
WASHINGTON – Top Democratic leaders intend to push for a quick end to the battle for the presidential nomination when primaries are over next week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday, adding that he, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and party chairman Howard Dean will urge uncommitted delegates to choose sides.
“By this time next week, it will all be over give or take a day,” Reid said of the marathon race between the front-running Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Obama is within 44 delegates of clinching the nomination, according to The Associated Press tally, and leads Clinton by roughly 200 delegates.
