Video: Bush meets with Pelosi and Hoyer at the White House

posted at 2:01 pm on November 9, 2006 by Allahpundit

The world reacts to Democratic victory: Chavez is ecstatic; Dobson is annoyed; Iraqi leaders and U.S. allies are worried; and Iran is hopeful but realistic given the Dems’ traditional affinity for the Zionist entity. Don’t they read Kos?

The Times, meanwhile, was reduced to this:

Of course, among bloggers and others, there was a residual sense of schadenfreude — delight in the tribulations of an American president tripped on his own hubris in adventures seen as endangering the world rather than curbing terrorism…

Some Web postings looked further ahead, reflecting a sense that the midterm vote had been a rehearsal for the presidential election in 2008. “It’s time for a Clinton government again where U.S.A. was liked and respected through out the world,” a contributor identified as Ted McDick wrote from Baku, Azerbaijan. “Come on Hillary get your hat in the ring for the next president of the good old U.S.A. All of Europe wants another Clinton not a Bush.”

As for the troops, they’re too busy to care much right now.

how many times can I be gagged in a single day?

Defector01 on November 9, 2006 at 2:15 PM

Wow! What a genius! The jihadi’s will stop beheading people as long as they like us.

Why haven’t we just tried that? Well, we’re about to find out for the next 2 years.

BTW, who already sees any future failures as Bush’s fault still?

rightside on November 9, 2006 at 2:16 PM

Is the Fed going to withhold my Jizya now, or will I get billed for that separately?

Kid from Brooklyn on November 9, 2006 at 2:20 PM

Rightside,

It will always be Bush’s fault. Even into the next century the Dem’s will be blaming Bush. That is all they have.

BobK on November 9, 2006 at 2:21 PM

Everything will be GWB’s fault until we elect someone they hate even more.
Who can we elect in ’08 to fill that dream?

bbz123 on November 9, 2006 at 2:21 PM

What really happened:

Bush and Pelosi met and decided when to introduce legislation for Comprehensive Immigration Reform now that the Republicans were out of way.

Both decided to hold off until after January to drop the bomb on the American people who oppose it by 80%.

ScottyDog on November 9, 2006 at 2:21 PM

She said God willing! Holy crap! =)

Do you guys think that Pelosi is more moderate then she portrays to get herself into congress?

msipes on November 9, 2006 at 2:22 PM

F*ck Nancy Pelosi and f*ck her lunch date with Jorge. We’ve got real stuff going on!

You are kidding, right? Nothing except absolute control will appease these ‘conservative’ liberals, and even then their badmouthing real conservatives will continie. It always has, and it always will.

That is what the cut-and-run conservatives bought when they capitulated, and todays message remains clear. Impeach Bush!

DannoJyd on November 9, 2006 at 2:25 PM

@Pablo

Good link! I am excited he is sticking with Bolton. The guy is a freaking badass mutha. I’d vote for him any time.

@ScottyDog

You are damn right. The democrats are going to betray the American people on immigration. They are going to give this temp worker bullshit that will allow a huge flood of illegals into our country. You people think it was bad with Republicans…just wait. Instead of 20 million illegals…. we will have 50 million.

Well, he might be. Let’s decide again tomorrow whether to impeach him or lobby for a third term. And then again on Saturday…

It would be so useful right now if Bush had the ability of Gambit to touch something and make it explode.

He still is to me, Slu. I’ll believe otherwise when our RINO-in-Chief recess-appoints Janice Rogers Brown to SCOTUS.

great video SilverStar. i’m sure that Jihadtube will take it down, since U.S.troops are going after their buddies.

I’m going to bid on the contract to supply puke bags for the White House. Just think how many they’ll need over the next 2 years.

i agree with you thebaldchick, who really gives a rat’s a$$ about what Europe thinks

Starblazer on November 9, 2006 at 2:55 PM

Bush is like Nixon…….a liberal repub…
I don’t know why the dims hate him…
Jack Kennedy was more conservative than Bush or Nixon.
I hope they impeach his wimpy bushy azz.

LZVandy on November 9, 2006 at 3:15 PM

Hey dumb azz..she is not the speaker yet..
there is an election to do that..you dumb buffoon.

Hoyer is in line for Majority Leader and Murtha is making noises about running against him for that spot. Pelosi is a lock for Speaker, genius.

Maybe my new LCD display has a flaw in it, but did anybody but me notice that “choke-chain” collar and leash on Bush, held by Pelosi?

Where’d her 15 mm Tahitian and Golden South Sea Akoya pearl necklace go? Did someone tell her it’s not polite to wear a $30,000.00+ necklace in front of the serfs?

Its in the trash bin with BILL and AL’s matching common man IRONMAN watches from the ’94 gig on the TIME cover.

aengus on November 9, 2006 at 4:54 PM

Bush is weak on everything but lame rhetoric.

Instead of defining the global war against Islamic Imperialism, he allows in thousands more “Saudi students” and kisses their “princes”.

Instead of closing the borders on Sept. 12, 2001, he has left them gaping till this day.

Instead of demanding that all illegals be sent home to there re-apply for “guest worker” visas legally, he wants to de facto grant them (and their millions of flooding-in relatives and friends) “amnesty” and the fast track to slap-on-the-wrist citizenship.

Instead of sending in enough troops to crush Iraq and establish a U.S.-style (NO Sharia Law, period) Constitutional democracy and Bill of Rights, he let the process be fatally-compromised and destroyed by permitting the local lunatics to write the rules of their asylum.

Instead of killing Sadr and obliterating his “Mehdi” army, he possefooted into the war, and reaps the chaos as a result.

Tom Tancredo for 2008.

Enough of this sell-out suicidal stupidity.

Or are the American people now so self-loathing and self-destructive that they want a La RAZA southwest?

Or a Muslim Michigan enclave that will spread its infil-traitor mode through CAIR lawsuits?

Or a nation with laws that let creeping “marriage” and “gender” re-definition spread to include polygamy, incest-ogamy, and any other societal disruption that a whining, anti-historical minority can wheedle the sympathetic, ahistorical suckers into “compassionately” kowtowing to? (With no grasp of the colossal disruption to our culture and nation that must follow?)

If we do not re-establish the core meaning and instincts of our country, we are aiming for Balkanized chaos.
Which is what Europe would love, since they are in the cowardly, self-lacerating (“forgive us for our colonial past!”) vanguard of the self-annihilatory West.

As Islam’s jihadists chuckle and sharpen their knives.

Bush – and the Republicans- all failed to read the playbook of the jihadists, the medieval warlord Mohammad’s Koran, and failed to understand the threat our Civilization faces, and that all free people will pay for as their calamitous derelection of duty and self-satisfied, militant ignorance marches on.

It’s the jihad, stupid.(

And all of its useful idiots, whether homegrown pacifists, Hispanic Secessionists, open-border mono-economy globalists, ad nauseam, only help in blindly ending this grand experiment in human freedom.

A house divided against itself will only bring on the global gulag of the Restored Caliphate.

As he was firing Rumsfeld, Bush should have struck Iran’s nuclear facilities simultaneously.
Weakness encourages the rapacious.

Or doesn’t our freedom mean anything but unregulated profits?

(And unrestrained “prophets”?)

profitsbeard on November 9, 2006 at 5:09 PM

It should be obvious. . .

Bush gives the Democrats everything they want; the Republicans don’t contest the election results, don’t raise the issue of fraudulent voter registration, or ballot box stuffing, and the Democrats let the president ‘retire in place’, as they say when a senior federal bureaucrat is nearing retirement.

It probably means that US troops are out of Iraq within a year, and the resulting disaster will be used by the Democrats in the 2008 elections.

In other words, the Democrats get everything they want, and Bush doesn’t get impeached.

So let us see if the deal holds.

Oh, yes, Bolton! It doesn’t matter. Bush can do anything he wants as long as it is obviously not going to succeed.

Great Rant

I could not agree more.

how many votes in the UN confirmation hearings does Bolton’s mustache get?

Yep – only if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that it is going on at several universities – not just a few.

Instead of closing the borders on Sept. 12, 2001, he has left them gaping till this day.

Gaping is an understatement when one can literally make a “border crossing” on an elephant!

Instead of demanding that all illegals be sent home to there re-apply for “guest worker” visas legally, he wants to de facto grant them (and their millions of flooding-in relatives and friends) “amnesty” and the fast track to slap-on-the-wrist citizenship.

Not to mention giving them social security benefits that are retroactive to whenever they say they came in.

Instead of sending in enough troops to crush Iraq and establish a U.S.-style (NO Sharia Law, period) Constitutional democracy and Bill of Rights, he let the process be fatally-compromised and destroyed by permitting the local lunatics to write the rules of their asylum.

Nonsense – just read Cobra II and Jawbreaker – again, this is an understatement. The truth is much worse.

Instead of killing Sadr and obliterating his “Mehdi” army, he possefooted into the war, and reaps the chaos as a result.

Again, look at what happened – he told our troops to back off when we had al-Sadr defeated, then made militias (such as al-Sadr’s) legal, allowed citizens to have one AK-47 per household (with 200 rounds of ammo), and then stood by while al-Sadr controls part of the government to the extent that the Iraqi government tells our troops to quit picking on al-Sadr and get out of his part of Baghdad.

Not merely reaping, but assisting in the creation of the chaos.

Or a Muslim Michigan enclave that will spread its infil-traitor mode through CAIR lawsuits?

Yep – along with the northern third of Ohioistan, parts of West Virginiastan, and other midwestern states of the new Caliphate of the Midwest where you’d never think to look.

Or a nation with laws that let creeping “marriage” and “gender” re-definition spread to include polygamy, incest-ogamy, and any other societal disruption that a whining, anti-historical minority can wheedle the sympathetic, ahistorical suckers into “compassionately” kowtowing to? (With no grasp of the colossal disruption to our culture and nation that must follow?)

If we do not re-establish the core meaning and instincts of our country, we are aiming for Balkanized chaos.

Bush – and the Republicans- all failed to read the playbook of the jihadists, the medieval warlord Mohammad’s Koran, and failed to understand the threat our Civilization faces, and that all free people will pay for as their calamitous derelection of duty and self-satisfied, militant ignorance marches on.

Too late – just look at the public schools where children cannot pray to God but are indoctrinated in Islam and other “cultures” in the name of multiculturalism, diversity, nad being one with the universe. Boys are expected to be girls, girls are expected to be boys most of the time (who’d have thought that the Kink’s would have gotten it so right when they wrote “Lola”?), America is demonized and others are glorified and it’s all OK as long as we collectively, are able to see our favorite reality show?

A house divided against itself will only bring on the global gulag of the Restored Caliphate.

Yeah – except this time the Capitol will be here. Ironic, isn’t it?

As he was firing Rumsfeld, Bush should have struck Iran’s nuclear facilities simultaneously.

If you really think about it, you can answer your own question.

Really great rant. You’re closer than you think.

And that’s the true irony.

Emmett J. on November 9, 2006 at 9:26 PM

2 Things I noticed.

1. Did the head of the anti-religion (except Islam) party just use the word “God”? Holy Crap!

2. Did the guy on the left really say “more safe”? Umm. Wouldn’t that be “safer”.

americanpundit on November 9, 2006 at 10:21 PM

Do you guys think that Pelosi is more moderate then she portrays to get herself into congress?

msipes on November 9, 2006 at 2:22 PM

I think responsibility moderates people.

It’s easy to propose radical ideas when you have no ability to carry them out, but when you do and the hopes, dreams, and lives of a free people depend on you, I believe you think about things with a renewed vigor.

I don’t think she is moderate… but I hope and believe that she will give matters more weight than she would have without her new responsibilities.

Christoph on November 9, 2006 at 10:33 PM

Besides – Keep in mind that God is not exclusively Republicn or Democrat. It is possible that even Pelosi is a believer.

However, I believe that she will moderate due to her place in history. If she is too liberal, she will ruin chances for women for another fifty years.

However, too much caution will also sink her.

Hers will be, ideally, a fine balancing act that will, if properly accomplished, be hard to follow.

Emmett J. on November 10, 2006 at 12:49 AM

The POTUS now has brown nose. He should do America a favor, and resign!
