Yeah, That Does Suck

The left is learning that the only way to ensure the press corps (and their party's leaders) will serve in an oversight role against government violation of civil liberties is to vote Republicans into office:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was booed by progressive activists Saturday for defending President Obama on the NSA’s surveillance programs and suggesting that alleged leaker Edward Snowden broke the law.

Sadly for Representative Pelosi, this Green on Blue Hair incident isn't something to be brushed aside by invoking George W. Bush:

“People on the far right are saying oh, this is the fourth term of President Bush,” the California Democrat said. “Absolutely, positively not so.”

Obviously it isn't so. It is much worse for the left. It is the second term of President Obama. And it seems the far left is more invested in that accusation.

Some of the crowd erupted in boos, with one man screaming, “You suck!”

At least nobody yelled, "You lie!"

If it had been the fourth term of President Bush (under the Bushtatorship, term limits would have been ignored, obviously), the press would have investigated the NSA surveillance some time in the third term. And Pelosi would have led the impeachment with her sidekick Reid trying the case in the Senate. So there wouldn't have been a fourth term after, Code Pink, and Netroots Nation united to chant President Bush out of office.

UPDATE: In the end, we can ignore NetRoots. Isn't this just a bunch of white people complaining about our first African-American president?

For the past two days I’ve been one of a sprinkling of minorities floating in a sea of young white people.

And a bunch willing to use a crude sexual insult against a woman speaking to them, I should add. Let's check the misogynist box, too.

Tip to Instapundit, again.
