The Alternate President

This article is going to make Hillary flip out, which is good. It is going to make Nancy dance for joy, which is disgusting to think about. One thing I have to wonder about is why President Bush's and Dr. Rice's early overtures are ignored in here? Is it because they told the truth and Pelosi is a dhimmi who is willing to allow Sharia to be implimented as long as she gets enough cash and accolades?

The Alternate President: "The Alternate President
Friday, 06 April 2007

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reminds us of the ambitious office worker who is surrounded by dunderheads who can’t or won’t get the job done. So she rolls up her sleeves and says for all the world to hear: “Well, it looks like I’ll have to do it myself.’

Pelosi, the rabble-rousing Democratic leader – or better yet the Alternate President – apparently has decided that President George Bush’s refusal to sit down and negotiate with Syria and Iran is just plain silly. If we are going to inch closer towards peace in Iraq, slow down Iran’s nuclear ambitions and create a stable region, perhaps folding our arms across our chests and frowning is not the right approach.

Pelosi, we have to admit, is grandstanding a bit. She and her delegation met with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and senior Syrian officials on Wednesday and she met with King Abdullah later the same evening.

She pressed Al-Assad to end his country’s support for militant groups and to stem the flow of insurgents into Iraq from across Syria’s borders. And she urged him to put some space between himself and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

And while we don’t have details of her meeting with King Abdullah, their discussions “ centered around the Saudi initiative for peace in the Middle East,” as she told reporters.

While substantive dialogue would be meaningful, it’s the mere fact that Pelosi had the audacity to brush aside the increasingly isolated White House to get some work done.

Pelosi’s delegation wants to emphasize the vital role that Syria plays in bringing peace to Lebanon, Iraq and the Palestinian territories.

“We came in friendship and hope, and determined that the road to Damascus is a road to peace,” Pelosi told reporters after her meetings.

Yet Bush sees it as politics, pure and simple. “Sending delegations hasn’t worked,” he said. “It’s just simply been counterproductive.”

Maybe. Maybe not. Certainly the silent treatment and saber rattling haven’t been productive. "
