WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday that President Bush should consider boycotting the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics following China's crackdown on protesters in Tibet.Yes I know I linked this story from the Huffington Post, but trust me, the reader comments from this site are much more entertaining. As for Pelosi, the key part of her statement is the very last chunk, "depending on what other heads of state do." Well there you go. Our decision on whether or not to appear for the opening ceremony should be made by France. Or Germany. Or Argentina. Hells bells, according to the left, our entire foreign policy should be dictated by what the rest of the world would have us do. Let's just do a poll for everything and leave our national security to it's whims.
"I think boycotting the opening ceremony, which really gives respect to the Chinese government, is something that should be kept on the table," Pelosi, D-Calif., said in an interview taped for airing Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America." "I think the president might want to rethink this later, depending on what other heads of state do."
In a recent trip to Tibet, Pelosi stated,"If freedom-loving people don't speak out against China's oppression of people in Tibet, we have lost all moral authority to speak out against any oppressed people."
Oh, I get it. Let's pull out of Iraq and declare defeat. When the terrorists in Iraq reopen the death camps, we could "speak out". When the emboldened islamofacists view us as weak and plot and execute more acts of mass murder, we could "speak out". When they bring the fight back to our shores during a democratic isolationist administration, we could "speak out".
It just hit me... Now I know who Pelosi reminds me of! She is so desirous of the democrats regaining executive power ("my precious" power!)...
