I love that the Democrats have had control for how long now? It was only 2003 when she made that statement and we were attacked and had gone to war. We are still at war and the Dems have had control of spending for a few years running now (isn't it since 2006?). I don't recall unemployment reaching the level it is now back in the Bush days.
I guess this is like when they said that dissent was patriotic under Bush but it's unpatriotic under Obama. Like toddlers, they try to change the rules when they are losing ground.

You have this backwards. Don't you remember "You are either with us or you are a terrorist."?
I am talking about what Pelosi and Clinton both said back then and in the now. Very differing statements that depend on who is in the WH. I don't care if people didn't want to go to war. I can totally understand why a lot of people didn't want to go. I can understand (under BOTH administrations) why people would express their anger at government decisions. I personally never considered it unpatriotic to express dissent. I do find it unpatriotic to depict any of our Presidents as Hitler or hanging effigies of them or other elected officials. But then again, I consider those people the fringe and not the mainstream of their parties. I guess I am too grown up for that.

I can't open the link (on bb)... But here is a quote I heard recently: Nancy Pelosi is more unhinged than the front door of a double wide trailer during a DEA crystal meth bust.~Dennis Miller :o)
