Hey, why back down off the ledge when you can double down on your untenable position and outright accuse the CIA of lying to Congress, a serious crime?

Pelosi: CIA lied to Congress about harsh tactics

“The CIA was misleading the Congress” as part of a broader Bush administration pattern of deception about its activities, said Pelosi, D-Calif. “The only mention of waterboarding at that briefing was that it was not being employed.”

Asked whether the agency lied, she said yes.

Her comments amount to an allegation that the CIA violated its legal obligation to keep congressional leaders informed. Republicans responded by ratcheting up their criticism of Pelosi.

“I think the problem is that the speaker has had way too many stories on this issue,” said House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio.

Dems: CIA briefers may have broken law

Democrats on the House intelligence committee said Thursday that CIA officers broke the law in 2002 if they told Nancy Pelosi then that they had not yet engaged in waterboarding.

“If they make a false report, absolutely it’s illegal,” said Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. “If they fail to make a report when they’re obligated to that is also illegal — a violation of the National Security Act.”

Said CIA Spokesman George Little: “It is not the policy of the CIA to mislead the United States Congress.”

Wow, so Adam Schiff, among others, decides to put on his California king lemming costume and follow Nancy over the cliff. I hope he realizes that Mistress Nancy just declared war on the CIA and the CIA, especially after the abuse they’ve taken over the last month, won’t just lay down and take this quietly. Hey Nancy . . .

Well, what about it Nancy, you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?

/I fear this won’t end well for Madame Speaker’s Speakership, if she continues to press on

You’re just not going to believe this one.

Obama says U.S. can’t keep borrowing from China

President Barack Obama raised the prospect on Thursday that China and other nations could stop buying U.S. debt and said the United States needed to tackle its deficit to avoid long-term economic damage.

“The long-term deficit and debt that we have accumulated is unsustainable. We can’t keep on just borrowing from China or borrowing from other countries,” Obama told a town hall meeting event in New Mexico.

“We have to pay interest on that debt and that means that we’re mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt,” he said.

China is the single largest holder of U.S. debt and owned $744 billion worth of U.S. government securities at the end of February, the latest month for which data is available, according to the U.S. Treasury.

Obama said the debt situation would create greater economic problems if foreign countries like China lost their appetite for U.S. treasuries.

“What’s also true is at some point they’re just going to get tired of buying our debt,” he said.

“And when that happens, we will really have to raise interest rates to be able to borrow and that will raise interest rates for everybody.”

The White House estimated earlier this week the U.S. budget deficit will be $1.84 trillion for the fiscal year that ends September 30.

What the hell, are you [expletive deleted] kidding me? BARACK OBAMA, AIDED AND ABETED BY A DEMOCRAT CONGRESS, IS GOING TO SPEND MORE, INCREASE U.S. ANNUAL DEFICITS, AND INCREASE OUR NATIONAL DEBT MORE THAN ALL 43 PREVIOUS AMERICAN PRESIDENTS COMBINED!

And Obama’s got the nerve to complain about our debt? Is he that arrogant, insane, or on drugs, again?

The U.S. is racking up “unsustainable” debt? Well, gee, I don’t know, here’s an idea, MAYBE STOP SPENDING MONEY LIKE A DRUNKEN SAILOR ON CRACK WITH SOMEONE ELSE’S STOLEN AMERICAN EXPRESS GOLD CARD!

Of course, that’s never going to happen. So, either Obama’s really stupid for saying what he said today or else he’s laying the groundwork for the largest tax increase in American history. You can already see it starting to happen, first they came for your soda pop . . .

Of course increasing taxes won’t solve our debt pronlem but, hey, it’s another required step down the red brick road to socialism, which doesn’t work ether.

/just wake me when this, not even close to long yet, national nightmare is over
