pelosi_hill_062410Here is Nancy Pelosi’s full statement on the Speech given by Prime Minister Netanyahu:

“The unbreakable bonds between the United States and Israel are rooted in our shared values, our common ideals and mutual interests.  Ours is a deep and abiding friendship that will always reach beyond party. Americans stand shoulder to shoulder with the Israeli people.  The state of Israel stands as the greatest political achievement of the 20th century, and the United States will always have an unshakable commitment to Israel’s security.

“That is why, as one who values the U.S. – Israel relationship, and loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech – saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation.

“Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated something we all agree upon: a nuclear armed Iran is unacceptable to both our countries.  We have all said that a bad deal is worse than no deal, and stopping the spread of nuclear weapons is the bedrock of our foreign policy and national security.  As President Obama has said consistently, all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear-armed Iran.”

  1. What a stupid woman!
    “You’ve got to pass the bill to see what’s in it!”
    She’s a disgraceful rep. to the American Congress being paid by our tax money!
    Hasn’t she learned in the third grade that there are 3 branches of government. This country is not run by Monarch Obama!
    The PM was invited by the Speaker of the House within in the legal parameters of his official duties; stupid woman!

  2. She and the Democrats are gambling that Netanyahu will come out looking like a fool, and Obama like a genius. If Obama manages to get a deal by which Iran actually agrees to give up nuclear weapons and stop supporting terrorism directed against Israel, Obama comes off as a genius.

    And if not, consider the fate of the American isolationists after Pearl Harbor proved them wrong, or the pro-appeasement Brits after Hitler invaded Poland.

    For Jewish Democrats, the stakes are especially high.

  3. idnt thid the same nancy who told representatives to vote for the bill and then read it? wHO WAS THAT INSULTING IF NOT HER COLLEAGUES AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. bETTER YOU SHOULD HAVE REMAINED SILENT RATHER THAN BLATHER

  4. “I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech”

    That would be very dangerous because her face would melt from all the plastic.

  5. HOW could anybody ever trust a word from the w…h from the west after passing obumacare where she said you need to pass it to see whats in it. I have a use car 20 years old you have to buy it to see how good it is; would you pay $10,000 AND BUY IT:for sure not and for sure not to trust this person EVER

  6. The part that’s too tough for her to swallow is that Congress believes Netanyahu more than Obama. And the track record for honesty is also way in Netanyahu’s favor. Obama has proved to be a pathological prevaricator, and all of Congress knows this, including this dimwit.

  7. You should be near tears. If you can just believe something Nr. Obama says, even though we have experienced time and time how honest he isn’t, without reading the deal yourself is definitely a reason to cry. Pathetic excuse for a Congresswoman.
