Yes, John Kerry is the chief flip-flopper, but he's not the Democrats' only one.
As we noted this morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent her attack dog Robert Menendez onto the airwaves
just minutes after it was reported President Bush would nominate Rep. Porter Goss to head the CIA. CNN quoted the San Francisco Democrat today in saying she didn't support the nomination: "But I will say what I said before is that there shouldn't - a person should not be the director of central intelligence who's acted in a very political way when we're dealing with the safety of the American people. Intelligence has to be the gathering and analysis and dissemination of information, of intelligence, without any political, any politics involved at all."
Sorry, Nancy. The Republican National Committee has unearthed this from June 5, in the Chattanooga Times Free Press:
"If Goss is nominated for the post, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California said that she would support him. Pelosi worked closely with Goss during the congressional investigation into the Sept. 11 attacks. Whoever replaces Tenet needs to be independent of political pressure, Pelosi said. Goss, who worked for the CIA before becoming a congressman in 1988, has shown that ability as chairman of the House Intelligence panel, she added."
But hey, if she can now endanger national security to try to score points for Kerry .
"But I will say what I said before is that there shouldn't - a person should not be the director of central intelligence who's acted in a very political way when we're dealing with the safety of the American people.
You know, when I read stuff like that, I always have the feeling that the reason that they say stuff like that is because they DO use positions like that politically.
Nancy's just OTR because Goss isn't a RAT. She couldn't be more transparent.
Pelosi will have a lot of explaining to do to Saint Peter.
"Let's keep the politics out of Intelligence," Pelosi said today.
She keeps intelligence out of politics every day.

What makes you think she's even going to encounter St. Peter?
She and her DSA comrades ought to be exposed for what they are, but that would take a Republican with some guts.
"Polousy, feinstein, boxer....a daily source of embarrassment for me"
And let us add Ms Barbara Lee to the list.
However i am not embarrassed by them - I am unable to explain it to you why. As an off and on CA resident since 1942 - San Francisco and the Bay Area was and is always a bit odd to me. And i learned to just move within it's political corruption and chaos without taking on the millstone personally.
From Willie Brown, Edmond and Moonbeam (I cut him some slack - not much) we have been and are raped and ripped off. And the gutter slum of this state keeps re-electing them at the polls.
Ahhhh Arnold - Buddy I hope you can make a difference - I'm pullin' for ya.
I think that the FL dems are telling them to back off Gross because he is popular down there. Is his seat in Central FL?
Republican Guts -- Oxymoron
"Intelligence has to be the gathering and analysis and dissemination of information, of intelligence, without any political, any politics involved at all."
Goss' seat is in SW Florida, the Naples - Ft. Myers area. The Rats would have zero chance of picking up his seat.
