Those Orwellian Liberals

While the recommendations of the 9/11 committe are important enough to complain about Bush for not immediately implimenting them...

Dems Urge Action on 9/11 Panel Findings 
Wednesday, August 11, 2004

WASHINGTON ? House Democrats called upon President Bush Tuesday to order Congress back into session so it can deal with recommendations made by the Sept. 11 commission (search) to reform the intelligence community. 

Minority leader Nancy Pelosi (search) of California has even turned the Sept. 11 commission recommendations into a piece of legislation. She told the president to stop making excuses for not getting the work done.

"Let's not try to find reasons why we should stay home, we shouldn't come here, we shouldn't do this, and this. We have a responsibility, we have a job to do. The question is why aren't we here doing it," Pelosi said after a specially called meeting of House Democrats in Washington, D.C., attended by roughly half the caucus.

They apparently aren't important enough to prevent Democrats from bogging the CIA down with partisan stall tactics...

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush's nomination of Rep. Porter Goss as the next CIA director could lead to tense confirmation hearings, with plenty of questions about the president's national security record and goals, just weeks before the Nov. 2 election.

Even as some Democrats praised the nomination of Goss, R-Fla., who gave up his role Tuesday as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, others criticized him as inappropriately partisan for a job that requires relaying objective advice to policy makers.

"You must keep the politics out of intelligence," said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California. "I'm not sure that has been done here."

Even more ironic is that the same Liberal is used to complain about the slowness of Bush and explain why the Libs are stalling him. Unbelievable.
