Pelosi and the Iowa floods

Speaker Nancy Pelosi toured Iowa flood and tornado zones this week, locales now in their 3rd month and more of cleanup and restoration. This is after she failed to pass legislation to assist in the Iowa efforts. This is also after she went on a miserable failure of a book tour. This is also after she turned off the lights and cameras in the U.S. House to stop debate on our energy crisis. And what do we get from the media? An audio clip on WHO Radio of Pelosi saying you just can’t believe it until you see it.

If you remember, Pelosi was one of the first to jump on Pres. Bush for bungling Katrina recovery. This time Pres. Bush had to sign an executive order to decrease Iowa’s co-pay on flood relief. That is not something the president should do, it is the jurisdiction of Congress.

Pelosi should be chastised by the media as well as her Democrat buddies Culver, Braley, Loebsack, and Boswell. Latham and King were already ripping on her and in case you missed Latham’s speech on the House floor, you may view it by clicking here.
