Many people want to have serious and in-depth discussion and debate on key issues with the leaders, such as they are, in the Democrat and MSM camps. I think that that idea is overrated. As Ms. Pelosi illustrates above, our "leaders" often don't have any views beyond what is superficially convenient at the moment.
Nancy Pelosi, press conference, September 7, 2006:
[E]ven if [Osama bin Laden] is caught tomorrow, it is five years too late. He has done more damage the longer he has been out there. But, in fact, the damage that he has done ... is done. And even to capture him now I don't think makes us any safer.
Nancy Pelosi, earlier today:
The death of Osama bin Laden marks the most significant development in our fight against al-Qaida. ... I salute President Obama, his national security team, Director Panetta, our men and women in the intelligence community and military, and other nations who supported this effort for their leadership in achieving this major accomplishment. ... [T]he death of Osama bin Laden is historic....
It is unfortunate that many public figures are unable to view events otherwise than through a partisan prism.
