NRCC: Pelosi Should Be "Put In Her Place" By McChrystal

Posted: Updated:

The National Republican Congressional Committee on Tuesday mocked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for daring to question Gen. Stanley McChrystal.

"General Pelosi has no problem sacrificing her own credibility as the Obama administration and liberals in Congress attempt to walk back a strategy they strongly advocated just months ago," said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. "Nancy Pelosi continues to make party politics a higher priority than our national security. Rather than listening to a four-star general's assessments on Afghanistan, General Pelosi somehow believes she is better suited to craft our country's military policy."

If Nancy Pelosi's failed economic policies are any indicator of the effect she may have on Afghanistan, taxpayers can only hope McChrystal is able to put her in her place.

For whatever reason, the NRCC did not criticize Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) who called McChrystal's recent public statement "pretty odd."

"I think the place for a woman is at the top of the House of Representatives," responded Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.): "It's evidence [Republicans] long for the days when a woman's place was in the kitchen. Now a woman is third in line for the presidency... But it's not surprising, coming from a party that's 80 percent male and 100 percent white."
