Pelosi: Resolution on Michael Jackson unnecessary

WASHINGTON (AP) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she sees no need for a House resolution in praise of Michael Jackson.

Pelosi, D-Calif., says Jackson was a great performer, but she thinks the resolution is unnecessary.

She said at a news conference Thursday that lawmakers could honor Jackson in speeches in the House. But she said a resolution would open up Jackson’s life to “contrary views that are not necessary at this time.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat, has proposed the resolution in Jackson’s honor.

Such a resolution is a nonbinding but symbolic expression from lawmakers.

Pelosi: Resolution on Michael Jackson unnecessary

For the 1st time since my political commentary adventure began, I have got to agree with Nancy Pelosi. ANY resolution on Michael Jackson is unnecessary. America as a whole and the entire MSM has blown this so far out of proportion that it’s sickening.

Many of you know that I often point out the excellence of our congressional members from my part of Texas, Sam Johnson, Jeb Hensarling and Ralph Hall. These gentlemen are among the best of the best, and represent Texas as it should be represented.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat from the Houston area, has proposed the resolution in Jackson’s honor and is NOT one of our stellar congressional representatives.

She was one of the 31 who voted in the House not to count the electoral votes from Ohio in the 2004 Presidential election.

Prior to the 110th Congress, Jackson-Lee served on the House Science Committee and on the Subcommittee that oversees space policy and NASA. She once asked, during a visit to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, whether the Mars Pathfinder had taken an image of the flag planted on Mars in 1969 by Neil Armstrong, failing to know the flag was in fact planted on the Moon.

Jackson-Lee is one of the cosponsors of the 2007 Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act.

In 2008, she endorsed Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.

She spoke at the Michael Jackson memorial service on July 7, 2009 in which she introduced a House Resolution 600 for the 111th Congress. The resolution if adopted would Honor Michael Jackson as a great humanitarian by the United States House of Representatives.

Jackson-Lee has urged better relations between the U.S. and Venezuela, which she describes as a friendly nation. She also seeks an end to the ban on selling F-16 fighter jets and spare parts to that country. The U.S. State Department bans such sales due to “lack of support” for counter-terrorist operations and Venezuela’s relations with Iran and Cuba SOURCE

Sheila Jackson Lee is, in MY opinion, nothing more than a Democratic HACK and is NOT the brightest bulb on the string, re-read the above blockquote in case you missed it.

I am pleased that Nancy Pelosi turned down this resolution, some things just don’t need to be a part of the national record of THIS nation. If individuals wish to honor Jackson, do so, ON YOUR TIME, not ours.

I am also fairly certain that Pelosi’s actions on this were NOT all that geared at doing the right thing so much as they were an attempt to keep the TRUTH from coming out on the floor of Congress concerning the accusations of pedophilia and drug use by this so-called icon.

Pelosi isn’t stupid, she doesn’t want this all over HER congress, she would possibly have to act in a sane and responsible manner, placing the truth above her personal libber feelings, and we just can’t have that now can we??

    Mheh. I guess I agree with that nutbag also. But, I tend to agree with your last statement – I think she knows introducing this in the house will bring down that house of cards that MJ was living in.

  2. Katie says:

    This goes up there with the Michael Jackson postage stamp that is being proposed. The big question there is whether to use the Black Jackson or the White Jackson.

  3. Kate says:

    Dear Lord in Heaven! I think the ol’ pace maker shorted out…..I’m agreeing with Queen Nanny too! What an utter waste of time and taxpayer money. Don’t they already screw us over enough, without praising some freakin’ pedophile, no matter how talented? Jeeeez…. I think I need to go get a tune up! :?

    What about CNN? If I didn’t know better I think larry king was an in-law. For the last two weeks+ it’s been nothing but MJ MJ MJ MJ MJ and we had 7 of our fighting warriors die and it was hardly worth mentioning. My finger is sore from pressing the remote to try and get away from the watching of idolizing this piece of pedophila shit, and now they want to memorialize him by putting his bleached face on a stamp….SHIT!!!!!!! Congress had to have a moment of silence??!! Gag me with a friggin spoon. Pandering for more black votes I see. What’s next, Flags at half staff? I’ll tell you one thing, MINE won’t be flown at half staff, not even for some scum suckin dirt bag congress asshat, let alone for some freak wannabe whitey.

  5. Mr Pink Eyes says:

    Holy shit! I agree with Nancy Pelosi on something. (Don’t let it get around though.) :)

  6. BobF says:

    If the Speaker was Republican and made that same exact statement, there would be charges of racism. Jackson and Sharpton would have immediately been on their way to Washington to demand his/her resignation.

  7. TexasFred says:

    Of course they would Bob…

    That’s called *selective hypocrisy* and *selective indignation*…

    A$$ $harpton and Rev. Je$$ie have it down to a science… :twisted:

  8. Though, frankly, I AM surprised she made this decision.

    Wow – something must be really bad when we both agree with Pelosi on anything… She was right but she probably only doing it to protect herself and him. ‘m personally sick of seeing and hearing news about him and consider it “good riddance” now that he’s gone. Let’s hear some news about Farrah – she deserved at least equal news coverage right?
