This is a sight to behold... the leader of the House of Representatives traveling to the middle east wearing a scarf submitting to the submissive requirements of middle eastern women - Unbelievable!
The truth is she looks like she fits in perfectly and I suggest she keep her weak-butt in Syria.
Personally, as an America Citizen, I'm appalled that she in any way represents me or my country. Her divisive politics, rhetoric and now her poor wardrobe selection makes me believe even democrats cannot stand this woman.
According to a New York Post article dated March 31st 2007, "Pelosi ignored requests from both the White House and State Department officials to scrap the trip as she set off on a junket to the Middle East, including Syria - designated by the United States as a state sponsor of ism."
Of course she ignored the requests... she's the Speaker of the House and she doesn't need to listen to the White House or the State Department. Especially if her defiance emboldens her politically to party fundraisers. Her verbal assaults on the President, his policies and his character are in line with other world leaders - those who happen to also be ISTS.
It won't be long before Speaker Pelosi literally tells the President to "shove it." She already thinks that way, expresses that to others in her "posse" so it will slip sooner or later and some journalist or news anchor will lead with it the next day!
How did the Syrians feel about having the person third in line to be President of the United States (and wearing a scarf) spend tens of thousands of dollars to come shoot the breeze? According to Stan Goodenough's April 04, 2007 article on the website Jerusalem Newswire "One veteran Middle East journalist reported afterwards that Syria was 'feeling very satisfied that this visit has gone ahead over the heads of the US administration and even of the president himself.'”
Wonderful. Embolden ist leaders by legitimizing them and defying the leadership of your own country. Who is this woman?
I am convinced that until this country unites behind one another, and we break the divisive lock that has us by the throats, our enemies with gain the high ground.
