View Full Version : Pelosi: President Obama's Been to Israel ‘Over and Over Again’

Daniel Halper has called attention to Nancy Pelosi's remarkable interview with Al Hunt on the topic of Barack Obama and Israel. I'd note one comment in particular: Pelosi's claim that President Obama "has been there [Israel] over and over again."

Wow. I'm involved with the Emergency Committee for Israel. We have an ad up in several states calling attention to the fact that President Obama, who's been quite the world traveler, has never visited Israel as president. Did we make a terrible mistake? Were we unjust to President Obama? Do we have to pull down the ad?

No, no, and no. Contrary to Pelosi's apparent claim, President Obama hasn't been to Israel over and over again. He's never been as president, which is certainly what Pelosi implied. Well, maybe he visited Israel "over and over" before becoming president, and that's what Pelosi meant to say? No. When he was senator, Obama went on two trips to Israel, once with several other freshmen members of Congress, and then as a presidential candidate. And he'd never been interested enough in Israel to visit as a private citizen. So much for the notion that Obama's been "over and over again."

So Pelosi is wrong, and the Emergency Committee is right. But Pelosi's resort to a whopper to try to reassure pro-Israel voters does suggest how worried Democrats must be about the reaction to Obama's attempt to create distance between his administration and Israel, as Obama's Israel policy gets more scrutiny.

Whenever a Democrat's mouth is moving, it's a very good bet that he or she is lying and you should verify the information before even considering believing it.

That fact that people would still believe that botox injecting crack smoker amazes me. Wow...

Nancy Pelosi continues to demonstrate that a botoxed mouth can still accommodate her foot.

I can understand the people of her district electing her to congress, they're as loony as she is, but what does it say about the Democratic Party and the House Democratic Caucus that they were willing to follow her as speaker? The woman has the IQ of a houseplant.

Cantor on Pelosi: 'Patronizing and Deeply Insulting'

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, recently said that Republican Jews are "being exploited." Today, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Republican, responds:

"It is both patronizing and deeply insulting for Nancy Pelosi to suggest any Jew is 'exploited' for their political beliefs or that support for Israel is somehow an 'excuse' for anything. Such thinking diminishes the importance of issues affecting Jews everywhere."
I think Pelosi would be a great one to watch and record. Great Romney ads.
