For some curious reason, San Fran Nan thinks she is the President.
Pelosi has taken it upon herself to handle foreign relations by traveling to Syria to meet with Syrian government, against the wishes of the State Dept and the Bush Administration.
Nan doesn't care. The People have spoken and she is now the Commander In Chief. You would think that she would respect the wishes of the State Dept and President Bush regarding this sensitive matter. Nan will no doubt return with glowing praise for her newfound Syrian friends.
White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said the speaker "should take a step back and think about the message that it sends."
"This is a country that is a state sponsor of terror, one that is trying to disrupt the Senora government in Lebanon and one that is allowing foreign fighters to flow into Iraq from its borders," Perino said.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "probably really wants people to come, and have a photo opportunity, and have tea with him, and have discussions about where they're coming from. But we just think it's a really bad idea," Perino said.
Pelosi's office did not immediately return a call seeking comment on why she was not heeding administration warnings.Yes, another fine example of liberal patriotism.
