Republicans for Pelosi?
Rumor has it, Pelosi is considering a trip to Iran! She's been told "no" by the White House and has been threatened with the Logan Act for the trip she already took to Syria. The Logan Act prohibits any US citizen from going to foreign countries negotiating without the authority of the US government or purporting to represent the country. It certainly appears she may be guilty of such. With her comments about possibly going to Iran, some Republicans in the Senate are offering to buy her a ticket. It seems the more actions she takes, the more helpful she is to the Republican Party.
When Democrats challenged Republicans in the 2006 Congressional races, they claimed they would turn things around once elected. "Turning it around" is beginning to look like a war on the economy, the abandoning of our troops, and an irresponsible approach to foreign policy. The Democrats have been largely a minority party for quite some time. Pelosi's behavior is making me believe they actually prefer that status.
