No More Sunshine And Butterflies: NSA Fallout Broadsides Lib Lawmakers


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has had a pretty fail-safe formula for “preaching to the choir” speaking engagements over the past few years: Praise President Barack Obama, demonize conservatives and talk about rainbows, butterflies, abortion and homosexuality.

But revelations that the National Security Agency is spying on Americans is “gumming up the works” for liberals like Pelosi. She is increasingly being met by crowds of liberals angry that Obama’s tactics pretty much destroy the idea of leftist utopia.

“He did violate the law in terms of releasing those documents,” Pelosi said of NSA leaker Edward Snowden, addressing attendees of the annual Netroots National conference of liberal Internet activists. “We have to have a balance between security and privacy.”

She then moved to make the case to liberal supporters that Obama’s spying is somehow more noble than George W. Bush’s.

“People on the far right are saying oh, this is the fourth term of President Bush,” Pelosi said. “Absolutely, positively not so.”

The Democrat veteran lawmaker was promptly met with a barrage of shouts from the crowd in support of Snowden and the U.S. Constitution.

“It’s not a balance. It’s not Constitutional!” one attendee shouted before being removed. “No secret laws!”

And a chant could be heard emerging from the audience, “Leave him alone! Secrets and lies! No secret courts! Protect the 1st Amendment.”

As the event organizers attempted to quiet the crowd, the verbal jibes continued.

One man in attendance shouted at Pelosi what conservatives have been shouting at her for years, “You suck!”

    The Constitution does not guarantee security but it does guarantee a right to privacy. At least Bush kept his spying within the legal parameters of the Godforsaken Patriot Act. Obama, on the other hand, has expanded the spying to include every American, bar none.

      Wrong! He doesn’t spy on the Mosques in the USA!! Spies on us but not our enemies!

      • Alan

        I stand corrected Debbie. But then again I don’t actually consider those who may pose a threat to this country to be true Americans.

        • Debbie Hogan Tate

          He tends to think they are above the law!! Prism is world wide and Obama got his hand “caught in the cookie jar” so to speak. I am thankful Snowden verified what millions of Americans have suspected! Karma has been nipping at his butt, more and more, but the bite, I’m sure, will come with his Impeachment! Looking forward to that day! If this admin. had not been so sneaky, Snowden would not be looked upon as a Hero. BUT after all this admin has done, I stand with him! Everything our government has been caught at since the last election has been underhanded and treasonous in its actions! “WE THE PEOPLE” have got to vote them out in 2014. AND IMPEACH the impostor in the oval office! Send him to “Gitmo”! And I can’t help but ad the line, “But wait, there’s more!” because I believe more “cookie jar” moments are in the works! DC is on the roll!

      You have that right my friend!

    W is not without fault. He “blessed” us with this gawd forsaken Patriot Act. Because of this, he does not deserve a place next to LBJ in Hell, but pretty close.

    Pelosi and the Obama administration have been screwing American Citizens ever since her ” we will find out what is in the bill after we pass it”(AHCA).
    The good people of California need to wise up and vote this lying twit out of office… the same for Harry Reid and the good people of Nevada. If the people of Illinois would vote out Dick Turbin, US citizenship might become the privilege it once was in stead of the liability it is becoming.

    Pelosi is living proof that human cloning should never be attempted. I shudder to think of two of her running around. One of her is one too many!

    “People on the far right are saying oh, this is the fourth term of President Bush<<

    well, i am not on the far right, but it is obvious that obama and little bush are twins. or at least kissing cousins.

    • Oldmonkey

      Half “correct” Obama is Bush on steroids! Leary of Bush, this is even more beyond the pale than no one in jail for the housing bust.

      • rbrooks

        i see very little difference between the two. most of what obama has done and is doing is nothing more than the continuation of little bush.

  • bob

    You are so right on!

  • IsThisAmerica

    Ha the pig finally got the mud slung at her! Great! Love it! Let the stupid liberals bury themselves.

  • Jim B

    I don’t know what planet she is from, but I hope we find it soon so we can send her back there. But seriously, we should strap her into a rocket and send her into outer space where she belongs… Oh wait a minute, she and Obizmo shut down NASA’s space program. Ironic isn’t it!

  • Tedde

    As she likes to remind us about the WORD,I would like to remind her about natures law in commandment #9.
