Pelosi Flip-Flops on Off-Shore Drilling

Tuesday, August, 12, 2008

Speaker Nancy “Impeachment is off the table” Pelosi, an ardent opponent of off-shore oil drilling along the coast of the United States, has reversed course and flip-flopped, telling CNN’s Larry King, “They have this thing that says drill offshore in the protected areas. We can do that. We can have a vote on that.”

Before now, Pelosi had resisted the idea, calling it a “hoax.”

She indicated such a vote would have to be part of a larger package that included other policies, like releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which she said could bring down prices in a matter of days.

“But it has to be part of something that says we want to bring immediate relief to the public and is not just a hoax on them,” Pelosi continued.

    Looks like Speaker Stupid Bitch is feeling the heat.

    Too bad she didn’t feel the heat when Americans demanded she impeach Bush and Cheney.

  2. New boss, same as the old boss. Man, is she useless.

  3. It’s unfortunate but I think the Dems should take advantage of the low information voter like this:

    Pelosi: Until these companies quit selling the oil they drill HERE to OTHER COUNTRIES I will not support more drilling here. Get it? Exxon is drilling in Florida and selling it to the Chinese.

    Since the low information voter just isn’t going to understand that oil is a global market, DRILL, DRILL, DRILL works for the repiglicans until an equally understandable meme is born.

    This is just more pandering to the lowest common denominator. The ban is set to expire in a few months anyway, and in the current economic climate there’s no chance it’ll be renewed. So rather than look like she “doesn’t care” about the American people, Pelosi has decided to take the easy way out and follow the “drill, drill, drill” mantra of the Republicans.

    Everyone with two brain cells to rub together knows it’s a hoax.

  5. Jim says:

    It’s incredible that this is the best the Democratic party has to offer.

  6. Estacada says:

    Nanny Goat Pelosi is such a fool.

    I think the nation would be better served if she stepped down and was replaced by a more informed and competent Speaker.

  7. Peace Nick says:

    Pelosi’s book is tanking.

    She has a challenger in the name of Cindy Sheehan.

    The Congress’ is at 9%.

    At this point, I guess she would juggle hard boiled eggs topless on the Playboy channel to win approval.

    Christopher – I’m sending you email. Pelosi’s book signing appearance in West LA was a riot. She was confronted by 300 protesters demanding that she impeach Bush. Things have gotten so bad for Nanny Pelosi on her tour that she has to travel with Secret Service.

  9. JollyRoger says:

    Frankly, pandering might be the best way to do it, since there are no rig ships that will be available for 5 years. Let the wingtards have their drill drill drill vote now, and rescind it with a new executive order in January.

    Peace Nick:

    I sure hope Sheehan wins. Pelosi is sickeningly corrupt.

  11. i hate her
    i hate everything about her

    i might even like laura better
    and that is definitely saying something

    I agree with the earlier comment, where did this high road wannabee hag get off saying we’re taking impeachment off the table ? Would the Repedofiles ever do that for our guy ? She’s Joe Lieberman with balls in her jockeys and she’s been nothing but a stooge for Bush and Co. since she was elected. A sad piece of Women’s history as the first female in that position. She”s put us in a position to keep getting reamed by the very people she claimed she would take care of when elected. Go Cindy.
