Speaker Pelosi is in some deep muck professionally, and her designer shoes are not up to the job of getting through it. Even a good pair of muck boots will not protect her from the onslaught. The only question is will she stay on as Speaker with the continuing distraction of her questionable ethics, or will the scandal become so awkward for the Democrats and President Obama that she’ll be urged by some senior members privately to simply step down. Politicians of course lie all of the time, so that is not the issue. The issue is that Speaker Pelosi may have been caught publicly, and risks going up against the CIA, which probably has more than enough records and incriminating evidence to sink Pelosi if she dares to make further accusations of misrepresentation to Congress.
So what does this have to do with George Washington? Back on March 11, 2009, I wrote an article contrasting the first President’s approach to politics with that of most politicians today. The opportunity presented itself that day with the minor fuss about Speaker Pelosi’s apparent concern about the availability of a G5 luxury jet for her use on the Memorial Day weekend, which given current developments could be her final trip home as Speaker. I hope you will read it. 2009-03-11-wednesday_gee-haw
