Pelosi Threatened Kucinich on Iraq

Speaker Pelosi is doing great harm to this country and to the Democratic party.  (From the Left):

As if you needed another reason to detest Speaker Botox.

Before the Nevada Democratic primary, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) was visited by Nancy Pelosi’s goon squad and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), who told Kucinich if he would drop his campaign to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney and President George W. Bush, they would guarantee to support his re-election to the House of Representatives.

As a principled man, he kicked them out.

Kucinich now faces several well-financed primary challengers for his seat in Congress.

Democrats with anything resembling a backbone ought to be looking for a way to cast her out of the House Speakership.  The Speaker should be supporting, not crushing, brave and principled action.

  1. Pelosi has been quite the disappointment. She’s like the left version of Condi Rice, with nothing to show on her resume.

  2. WTF?

  3. Hey Dan,

    Thanks for the link.

    The reaction of the Kossacks to my blog piece was predictable and not anything I haven’t seen before from people on the left invested in the status quo.

    So far, three separate sources have confirmed what I wrote:

    1. New Jersey IMPEACH
    2. Democratic Underground
    3. Counterpunch

    While a single poster on DailyKOS “claimed” he got a phone call from Kucinich’s office saying the visit never happened.

    I have checked Kucinich’s House website and there’s no statement saying the piece isn’t true.

    I have sent Kucinich an email asking him to confirm or deny the story and as of this morning, haven’t heard back.

    Until I hear directly from Rep. Kucinich, I will stand by my piece and the three sources I used to confirm it.

  4. I’m really trying to be shocked, nope, won’t happen. See, we got betrayed over ten years ago, I’ve gotten used to it.

  5. Kid A Jay, unfortunately yes.
    Rafael, That is the perfect reaction.
    Christopher,
    Sure thing. Keep us posted if Kucinich confirms directly.
    RickB,
    10 years?

  6. Well ok, the last time we got betrayed by a party of the ‘left’.
