Nancy Pelosi “Near Tears” After Netanyahu Speech

Benjamin Netanyahu is basically a badass. His speech today, in front of a joint session of Congress, delivered what was expected and, hopefully, has changed the focus of the conversation over Iran from one of whether the speech was appropriate, to whether the administration’s actions can possibly have any effect on Iran’s nuclear weapons program. The answer to the later is, quite obviously, from Bibi’s speech and elsewhere, pretty much “no.”

But not everyone was as positively impacted by Bibi’s speech. Nancy Pelosi, for example, who sat in the chamber and rolled her eyes through Netanyahu’s speech rather than skipping it like some of her colleagues, was “near tears,” but not in a good way.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hammered Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday, saying the Israeli prime minister’s speech to Congress was an “insult” to the country.

“The unbreakable bonds between the United States and Israel are rooted in our shared values, our common ideals and mutual interests,” Pelosi said in a statement just after the speech.

“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.

First of all, there’s no way Nancy was anywhere near tears. Her tear ducts disappeared at least two facelifts ago.

Second, perhaps Nancy Pelosi, who is a senior member of Congress and one of the leading female legislators, should pull on her big girl panties, tuck in her lower lip, and recognize her position as a key decision maker in one of the most powerful deliberative bodies in the world requires her to do more than get weepy when her precious worldview, in which the Middle East crisis is solved by a warm hug and some hot cocoa, is perforated by a world leader who must live under threat of annihilation every day. 

Poor Nancy. It’s hard out there for a lady legislator. So many meanies.

I suppose this – acting like a teenager, dramatic and angsty over being put on curfew – is the best compromise that Nancy, in her mind, could reach. But I suppose that’s good news for Republicans and moderate Democrats who have been hammering home the problems with Obama’s foreign policy for months: if Nancy Pelosi has no idea how to conduct herself in regard to the appearance of world leader, mostly out of confusion over whom within her party to anger, then those who oppose the nonsensical Iranian nuclear energy deal have already won. Losers don’t have to have pretend seizures on the floor of Congress to drive the point home.
