    "Pelosi receives warm welcome in Syria"

    "The Syrian media are hailing her visit as a potential breakthrough in icy U.S.-Syrian relations, with the Syria Times calling her a "brave lady on an invaluable mission."

    Even the state-run news agency harped on the importance of Pelosi's visit. Headlines from the Syrian Arab News Agency read: "World and Arab newspapers stress importance of Pelosi's visit to Syria" and "Pelosi describes her visit to Damascus as important."

    The House speaker is scheduled to meet with President Bashar Al-Assad on Wednesday."

    The White House reaction:

    "President Bush admonished Pelosi in a Rose Garden question-and-answer session Tuesday, calling her trip "counterproductive."

    "Going to Syria sends mixed signals, signals in the region and, of course, mixed signals to President Assad," Bush said. "And by that I mean, you know, photo opportunities and/or meetings with President Assad lead the Assad government to believe they're part of the mainstream of the international community, when in fact, they're a state sponsor of terror."

    He further accused Syria of destabilizing the Lebanese government and turning a blind eye to foreign fighters flowing across its border into Iraq.

    American and European officials have met with Al-Assad in the past, "and yet we haven't seen any action," Bush said. "The best way to meet with a leader like Assad or people from Syria is in the larger context of trying to get the global community to help change his behavior."

    More great moments in Democratic congressional leadership.

    They continue to behave as though they were elected to the White House and that they are free to conduct their own foreign policy.

    Just to be clear, are you saying you find the photos of Pelosi with Pres Assad disturbing?

    I guess you are trying to make some sort of point by showing Bush with a Saudi leader.

    Of course, it just reinforces my point that it is the Constitutional duty of the President to conduct the foreign policy of the US.

    It is NOT the constitutional duty of a member of the House of Representatives to conduct their own foreign policy.

    In fact, that could be disastrous, if not treasonous.

    Do you really want far right congressman conducting their own diplomacy around the world when a Democrat is President?

    So many deflections from the Left today.

    In the thread about Harry Reid it was nothing but "Bush lied" here again we are hearing nothing about Pelosi conducting her own foreign policy just more Bush bashing.

    Do you have no arguments to offer?

    I ask this honestly... what is her agenda going there? Is it the first time a member of congress has visited a foreign nation?

    The problem is that you directly quoted bush criticizing her. And the thing is that Bush (whether you like it or not) has lost a lot of credibility, so that obviously if you are giving more strength to the bush criticism than to the actual trip and why it is wrong, then people are going to go back and attack bush.

    So, she is trying to repair the damage done by the WH.

    Deflections? For what? Your attempt to bait others?



    I didn't say Bush lied in the other thread.

    And you think you have seen any Bush bashing yet.

    Me looking forward to the next few weeks and months.

    She should have just cut right to it and met with Ahmadenijad himself. It isn't as if the Syrians can do anything without the go ahead from the Iranian Mullah's anyways.

    Republican Senator Arlen Specter met with Assad back in December. Why no White House or Bush condemnation then? Republicans Robert Aderholt of Alabama, Frank Wolf of Virgina, and David Hobson of Ohio are all in Syria too. But that damn liberal media and their bias don't report that. Bush and the White House sees no benefit in spinning the trips of these other Republicans. And the righties here single out Pelosi. What a friggin joke.
