Pelosi defends altered
photo of Democratic women

Washington Post, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 1/5/2013 7:55:13 AM

The office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) digitally added several female members to a photograph intended to include all of the women in the House Democratic Caucus. While dozens of members turned out for the Thursday photo-op, some weren’t able to make it on time, ABC News reported. Rep. Debbie Wassermann Schultz (D-Fla.), the chair of the Democratic National Committee, was among the members who were added to the photo.

Just the usual from Nancy, she makes up her own reality world. Evidently she has staff that are experienced at creating phony photos.

Sorry, I forgot..Nancy was also the one who provided her signature on an altered document certifying that Obama was eligible to be the democrat candidate for President.
Perhaps her staff also created "the" birth certificate.

Nan is following Stalin´s tradition, isn´t she.

Ol´ Uncle Joe used to have his henchmen cut out the faces of his enemies from official photographs in an effort to erase them from the memories of the people. It was crude, but old Soviet Russia didn´t have sophisticated technology. They would have loved Photoshop.

The photo is a minor thing by itself, but it illustrates the mindset of this megalomaniacal fossil. She will get what she wants even if she has to fool people or even cheat to get it.

These remarks do not constitute much of a defense. They don´t seem to amount to anything besides a plea for expediency. By such a standard, virtually anything would be allowed. It is, no doubt, a small thing to alter a photograph and create a misleading, though ultimately inconsequential impression. Yet in another way, it is a big thing. It is dishonest. And it is characteristic of the fast and loose relationship many Democrats have with the literal, factual truth. Their truth is a higher truth - the Truth of ideology. We have seen how this attitude allows them to maintain the truthiness of falsehoods that could have been true, and to dismiss errors of fact as of little or no importance if they contradict the Truth of ideology.

The work was sloppy. If you are going to photoshop something, at least try to make it believable. Must be some affirmative-action people on the photoshop staff. No pride of workmanship or just not enough intelligence to do the job right. People just want to get paid.

It´s just a petty example of the way liberals are willing to make the truth to be as they think it should be…not as it is.
In this case truth is…not all the people were there.

Liberals think: "so we´ll add the ones missing. What´s the big deal?!"

The big deal is that the same philosophy is applied to Birth Certificates, Benghazi, Hillary´s ´illness,´ etc., etc.

"The truth is what I believe it to be. If I believe something is true…then for me it is true."

Odds are if, a year from now, someone asked Pelosi if all
the women attended the photo-op she would swear they were all there…and she has a picture to prove it!

There are tons of things to despise about Pelosi but this isn´t one of them. I recently wished I had the expertise in photoshopping to add a staff member to a photo for a newsletter instead of superimposing a cropped head. It´s better than a "not pictured" blurb at the bottom.

I wonder if she used the same photographer that did the situation room photo during the Bin Laden raid?

Seriously, though, this seems pretty trivial, she wanted a picture of ALL the Dem female members and a few didn´t make it... it´s not as though this was an alibi photo in a criminal case.

Two leading Republicans on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence say that Michael Morell, then acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, gave an account of his role on Benghazi that was often misleading and sometimes deliberately false. “I went back and reviewed some of his testimony the other day and he’s gotten himself in a real box,” says Senator Saxby Chambliss, the highest-ranking Republican on the committee. “It’s really strange. I’ve always thought Mike was a straight-up guy, gave us good briefings—factual, straightforward. I mean, this has really been strange the last few weeks—all this now being uncovered.”At issue is

Surprised by how tough this winter has been? You’re in good company: Last fall the Climate Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that temperatures would be above normal from November through January across much of the Lower 48 states. This graphic shows just how wrong the official forecast of the U.S. government was: The big red blotch in the top map represents parts of the country in which the Climate Prediction Center forecast above-average temperatures.

Hopes that a fresh truce could end the confrontation in Kiev were dashed on Thursday when at least 21 protesters were killed in the space of a few hours. The Telegraph saw ten corpses were laid out on the pavement beneath the awning of a cafe on the northen edge of Independence Square, where thousands of demonstrators are still camped. At least three of the bodies displayed single bullet wounds to the heads. A Reuters photographer counted a total of 21 bodies in three places on the square. One demonstrator, who gave his name as Andreiy, carried in one body

KIEV, Ukraine — With hundreds of riot police officers advancing from all sides after a day of deadly mayhem here in the Ukrainian capital, antigovernment protesters mounted a final desperate and seemingly doomed act of defiance late on Tuesday evening, establishing a protective ring of fire around what remained of their all-but-conquered encampment on Independence Square. Feeding the blazing defenses with blankets, tires, wood, sheets of plastic foam and anything else that might burn, the protesters hoped to prolong, for a while longer at least, a tumultuous protest movement against President Viktor F. Yanukovych, a leader who was democratically elected in

Forrmer Clinton administration operative Paul Begala doesn’t think so. He writes: “Politics [is] about the future, not the past; about voters’ lives, not politicians’. Thus the personal attacks on Clintons will fail.” Begala is probably right, but his analysis seems to apply only to Democratic politicians. The Washington Post thought that a few instances of alleged high-school bullying by Mitt Romney were relevant to his presidential bid, and Team Obama had a field day with Romney’s old business ventures. Similarly, the Post has written this year about Chris Christie’s first political campaign (for the County Commission in 1994) and about his

WASHINGTON — When President Obama invited President François Hollande of France for a state dinner, the White House drew up a list of 300 guests to honor the visiting leader and his partner, Valérie Trierweiler. Engraved invitations, with the presidential seal in gold at the top, were printed and set to be mailed. But there was an unexpected development. Mr. Hollande’s relationship with Ms. Trierweiler blew up in the midst of revelations of an affair with a French actress he had secretly been visiting by motor scooter. Suddenly, Ms. Trierweiler was no longer France’s unofficial first lady and no longer coming

Anyone who thinks that what’s happening here is comparable to the excesses of other sports events in other places simply hasn’t seen or felt these Winter Games firsthand.

The death last Sunday of Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman at age 46 focused media attention on the nationwide surge in heroin use and overdoses. But the very real heroin epidemic is framed by an even more dramatic increase since the beginning of the century in overdoses from pharmaceutical drugs known as opioids. These are, in effect, tandem epidemics — an addiction crisis driven by the powerful effects on the human brain of drugs derived from morphine.Further tests are pending to determine the precise cause of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death.

The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead.

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

In a Facebook post, Palin notes that Pierson’s “life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.” One of those hardships includes a 1997 arrest for shoplifting. As the Dallas Morning News reported on Valentine’s Day, “In 1997, five days before her 21st birthday, Katrina Pierson, then named Katrina Lanette Shaddix, was arrested on a charge of theft of greater than $50 and less than $500.” Pierson,

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

As American voters watch ObamaCare continue its Godzilla-like rampage across the national health-care landscape, it´s worth considering the collateral damage this political monster may be doing to the Democratic brand itself. What if ObamaCare´s problems become a metaphor for the modern Democratic Party? Two portents emerged the past week. The United Auto Workers suffered a humiliating defeat at Volkswagen VOW3.XE -0.49% in Tennessee. And days before that loss, voters San Diego elected Republican Kevin Faulconer mayor after he teed up his opponent as a captive of the city´s public unions. Two big constituencies sacked in a week.
