Pelosi: Perhaps Bush Should Skip Olympics
Posted on Mar 31, 2008
Nancy Pelosi in recent weeks has been living up to her reputation as a critic of China. In an interview airing Tuesday, the House speaker tells “Good Morning America” that President Bush should consider skipping the opening ceremonies. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has already said “nein” to the affair.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not want the U.S. to boycott the Beijing Olympics, but she says that President George W. Bush should consider skipping the opening ceremony.
“I think boycotting the opening ceremony, which really gives respect to the Chinese government, is something that should be kept on the table,” Pelosi, D-Calif., told “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in an interview airing Tuesday. “I think the president might want to rethink this later, depending on what other heads of state do.”
