“This is an historic moment - for the Congress, and for the women of this country. It is a moment for which we have waited more than 200 years. Never losing faith, we waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights. But women weren't just waiting; women were working. Never losing faith, we worked to redeem the promise of America, that all men and women are created equal. For our daughters and granddaughters, today we have broken the marble ceiling.”
Did anyone tell her about Condoleezza Rice? Rice broke the ceiling awhile ago, and guess what she is black. She didn’t even have to tell me. There is only one difference – I like Condoleezza. It would be a distressing thought to even think about a Nancy or Hillary presidency. This country would be in a world of hurt.
But, Pelosi is under the belief that both the president and vice president have died. How do I know? She has left the comfort of her home to engage in talks with the brutal Syrian dictator, Bashar al-Assad. You know - that guy who has assisted in the killing of our troops by supporting Hezbollah, and has helped Iran supply arms to Syria, that rogue state complicit in helping Iran supply rockets to Hezbollah that were used against Israel. Syria also allows foreign fighters through its borders into western Iraq for the purpose of killing American troops.
Nancy and her cohorts are following the same policy of appeasement that ended in the deaths of millions in World War 11. This policy of appeasement enacted after World War 1 and used by Neville Chamberlain provided for an artificial peace and allowed the British and French to ignore the threat posed by Hitler, and it resulted in many deaths. This policy is once again rearing its ugly head. Pelosi took along her pal Keith Ellison, the first Muslim congressman who was allowed to say his oath of office with his hand on the Koran instead of the Bible (imagine using the Bible in an Islamic country). The reason it took the United States so long to enter World War II was because of this policy of appeasement. This was the foreign police of England and France toward Germany. This policy emboldened Hitler and allowed him to rebuild the German army and navy in direct violation of the Versailles treaty and gave him the wherewithal to invade the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia, and he did not stop there. There would be no peace. The same liberals protested against entering the war then as those who protested against Vietnam and those who protest the war today. Both World War 11 and Vietnam resulted in the deaths of millions as a by-product of the appeasement efforts of the liberal left. It was only until the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor that forced the U.S. into World War ll. Of course, Rosie O’Donnell would probably say that the bombing of Pearl Harbor was a conspiracy concocted by the United States so we would enter the war. Allowing Keith Ellison to use the Koran as he said his oath of office was just another example of this continuing policy of appeasement.
The solicitous nature Democrats like Jimmy Carter and Nancy Pelosi show today’s dictators is disconcerting. Imagine Roosevelt having talks with Hitler during World War 11. The Nazi-Soviet Nonaggression pact with the Soviet Union was theoretically intended to prevent the Nazis from invading Russia. In exchange, Hitler would give Stalin control of Eastern Poland and the Baltic States. Of course, we now know Hitler never intended to keep his promise. He had always intended to invade Russia and we know where that lead to. As early as the 1920s, Hitler indicated his desire to acquire land in the east (Russia). Notice the similarity with Clinton and North Korea and now dare I say Bush and North Korea. After Hitler took over the Sudetenland, a hastily arranged conference was arranged in Munich with British, French and Italian representatives. Nevelle Chamberlain returned to Britain from Munich boasting that an agreement had been made and it meant, “Peace in our time.” Imagine “Peace in our time” with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Virtually all of Hitler’s demands were met. Hitler was basically given the Sudetenland in northwestern Czechoslovakia, and the Czechs, abandoned by their western allies, stood helplessly as the Nazis marched in with virtually no resistance.
So why do these analogies not fit today? Is evil any different now than it was then? The liberals are clueless on how to confront the evil today as they were then.
This policy of appeasement includes the new surrender date Pelosi introduced. Before the last elections, the Democrats were careful not to call it “cut and run”, it was “redeployment.” Of course, they never said what that meant. Now we know exactly what they meant – “surrender”. The former hippie generation is now calling for a surrender date by August 2008. There is also a lot of pork attached to this surrender-date bill. Al-Qaeda must be rubbing their hands in anticipation for when we raise the white flag.
On Pelosi’s official website she writes:
“The President’s escalation plan to send more U.S. troops to Iraq is out of step with the American people and our allies. Why are thousands of additional American troops being sent to Iraq at the same time that British troops are planning to leave? (my comment: the fact the British let their 15 sailors be kidnapped shows where they stand).
Has anyone told Pelosi, the surge has decreased casualties in Baghdad by 80%?
And in another statement she writes
“As is appropriate, my first trip outside of the United States as Speaker of the House was to visit our men and women in uniform – to thank them for their courage, their patriotism, and their sacrifices that they are making and that their families are making for our country.
“As a tribute to them, I wanted to bring the highest-level delegation possible – people who are respected for their commitment to our national security and their concern for the welfare of our troops – Members of Congress who understand how America must protect its power and project its values.”
This begs the question; do we want a woman for president? Dick Morris says that single women are desperate to put a woman in the White House but I ask to the peril of the United States? Nancy Pelosi already thinks she is president and she is a grave danger to America. Women like her should be kept at home baking cookies like the good little grandmother she wants to portray. As Senator Lloyd Bentsen once said to Dan Quayle, “Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy.” In the same vein, I would say to Nancy Pelosi, “Speaker of the house, you are no Margaret Thatcher,.” I have yet to see a qualified woman who would fit the bill for the presidency. I would vote for a woman if I saw a qualified one. Even the Democrats are running away from Hillary. Hillary is a danger to America as is Obama. I thought maybe Condoleeza Rice might be a viable candidate until she convinced Israel to surrender to Hezbollah. If it be a woman that leads this country in these troubled times, let it be a Margaret Thatcher. But I don’t see it yet.
