Nancy Pelosi's Great Start
Nancy Pelosi's Top Blunders as Speaker of the House (to be):
- Nomination of ethics-challenged John Murtha as House Majority leader.
- Nomination of ethics-challenged Alcee Hastings (a man ineleigible for a security clearance) for chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
- After running on a campaign to implement the 9/11 Commission recommendations, immediately rejecting those recommendations with respect to the organization of the House.
- Nomination of the intelligence-challenged Sylvestre Reyes as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee (after six years on the committee, including 9/11, he does not know whether al Qaeda or Hezbollah are Sunni or Shiite).
