    Discuss??

    One more thought:
    -- I was under the impression that foreign policy is tasked to the executive branch, not the legislative branch. :doah:

    Yeah, I read an article the other day in my Government class. It seems as though Bush doesn`t want to accept that that in fact is tasked to the legislative branch....

    According to the definition you have provided I would have to agree that yes, she is felon. Granted I am not entirely informed of the situation in that I have not had a chance to get but bits and pieces of information about the situation. From what I have seen and read though I still can't figure out why she was there other than for a glorified vacation. Look at all of the ways she has misused, abused and misappropriated her status as far as travel goes since she became the majority leader.

    I say let's get her out of office before some other people follow her lead. Next thing you know we could end up with any of the fine:rolleyes: candidates the dems have put up for show so far in the Oval office.:mad:

    A felon is one who is convicted of a felony, so technically, no she is not a felon.

    Did she commit a treasonous act? Absolutely :mad: !

    You are correct regarding foreign policy:
    Who Makes U.S. Foreign Policy?

    The President of the United States has a number of advisers who are key to making U.S. foreign policy. The most important is the Secretary of State.

    There were several GOP members there a week or two before, why wasn't there a big fuss then?

    They did not presume to speak for the US diplomatically. The problem is not that she visited there, the problem is that she tried to say that Olmert had told her that he was ready to make peace with Syria, which he and his office deny ever saying to her. In addition, even if he had said it to her it is not her place to convey that message to a foriegn leader, it is the job of the Secretary of State.


    So to answer your question: there was no fuss since they did nothing wrong, I guarantee had they overstepped the WaPo woould have been all over it. It is very telling indeed that a paper traditionally aligned with Pelosi and her ilk (and many other media outlets) have been ripping on her.

    She fugged up bigtime.

    They were not Speaker Of The House, the third in-command of the United States.

    the Senate is there to ratify treaties... other than that, I don't see what the legislature has to do with anything outside of our boarders. They can't legislate anywhere else, and that is their only job. The Prez can send the army to places over seas and is charged with defending the nation from threats from abroad. Seems like the foreign policy ball should be squarely in his court.
