Nancy & Harry: Trouble in Paradise

The "eyes" have it!!!

In the below video House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid emerged from the White House yesterday looking like an old married couple after a spat trying to put on a happy face for the guests they're hosting at a house party. We've all seen this and we might buy it, until one of them tries to put their arm around the other to further the facade and is then dutifully blown off.

That is exactly what happened when Sen. Harry put his arm around Speaker Nancy to announce that “everyone” would support “whatever” Afghanistan policy the President produces. After Sen. Harry made that statement to the press Speaker Nancy did an eye roll and the old "2 step" to the left once she felt his arm on her shoulder.

Pelosi made it clear that she was angry about Reid's unilateral offer of unequivocal support and if President Barack Obama decides to send more troops to Afghanistan, he risks setting off an internal party struggle on a foreign policy issue that may well define his performance as commander- in- chief.

Pelosi, reflecting the views of anti-war voters who gave Democrats the majority and of the progressives who elected her as Speaker, has publicly expressed reservations about Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s call for the deployment of 40,000 additional troops. And she resents his penchant for going public.

Speaker Nancy certainly doesn't have a poker face when it comes to showing the Taliban her cards.
