    WE could do without Pelosi, She and Ried have helped cause the mess we are in. THE CONGRESS IS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR REPRESENTATIVES NOT PLATFORMS TO SHOW HOW TOUGH THEY THINK THEY ARE WAKE UP YOU TWO. HOPEFULLY YOU BOTH WILL BE JOB HUNTING IN 2010.

    I have been listening to CNN all day today and all I can say that Brokers who lost their house are not that smart. Everyone here in this country never gave a moment of thought if they could afford their houses, cars, trips ect.ect. I can stress only that people in the USA have to learn not to get things on credit unless you can pay your credit card off every month. That tells you, that you have to live with in your means and not pretend your are rich, because most of you are not rich but like to brag. If you buy a home you can afford and it does not have a Great Room, but a regular livingroom that tells you, you can pay your monthly gasbill for the house. Live with what you can afford, save and the only things you buy on credit in your lifetime should be a house and maybe a car. A house you can afford and a car you can afford. It does not have to be the biggest house on the block and a car not a cadillac. When you grow older and are more established and you do not live from paycheck to paycheck, then buy a Cadillac, BMW or what ever. The word SAVE has not been in our vocabulary in many years, we have to learn the meaning of it.

    My apologies to these heroic people who have to sit and squirm near Precious Perky Pelosi and watch that fake smile all night.

    She should invite the one really responsible for the safe landing of Flight 1549. That would be the Lord our God. This guy may be a great pilot, but God is the one that pulled that miracle off.

    Also, she should invite the CEO of Del Monte and Starkist. After all they are responsible for a great deal of her wealth. Check out American Samoa and how she kept the minimum wage increase from going into effect there. Starkist, owned by Delmonte employs 75% of the people there. Her husband owns 17M in stock in Starkist.
    They are headquartered in SF. Something smells fishy to me.

    It is nice that Pelosi is having the crew involved in the crash in the Hudson. Thank God they all survived. What about the other crash with no survivors, how about some of their family members. You heard about that Hudson crash for weeks and still hearing about it and nothing more on the crash that killed all crew and passengers.

    Pelosi's father is the former mayor of Baltimore.

    Just thought you'd want to know.

    James L., down boy! You are just itching for another opportunity to howl "racism". We all need to grow up and move on. Obama is the "Post racial" president. He said so himself. Who are you to doubt him?

    @ Bob

    Haven't you ever heard of "no taxation without representation" before? The people of D.C. pay taxes just the same as any other state citizen, but they have no voting representation in Congress. Does that sound right?

  14. DNC must changed.

    Under the Nancy Pelosi's leadership of the Speaker of House, it has happened that DNC is to manufacture of sex scandals, a corrupt implementation to sell senete seat, to pay to play, a dirty money laundry and even porn. The following examples which have happened for not during 10 years, but for one and half year from 2008 except Jim McGreevey's case(D-NJ).

    Burris (D-IL Sanator-perjury)
    Cohen (D-NJ Rep.-Porn w/child at office)
    Bill Richardson(D-New Mexico Gov.-received illegal dirty money )
    Rod Blago(D-ILL Gov.-Criminal to sale the seat)
    Rahm Emmanuel(D-ILL Rep.-misleading of the Obama's seat)
    David Paterson(D-NY Gov. took cocain,had affairs 3 times)
    Jim McGreevey(D-NJ Gov.married man have affair w/gay)
    Eilot Spilzer(D-NY Gov.to buy prostitution & mooney laundry)
    Charles Rangel (D-Rep NY, Tax Fraud, my district)-Pelosi still stands with this frauder.
    John Ed (D-NC the canditate extramarital affair,NC),
    Tim Mahoney (D-Rep.Fla), Newsome (D-SF Mayor, affair w/wife of his aid), Tony Villar (D-LA Mayor, divorced as affair)
    Paul Pelosi (husband of Pelosi, under investigated)

    Blah blah God blah blah miracle blah blah blah. God gave us free will and the ability to act upon it. The guy is a hero for HIS ACTIONS and no amount of religiosity can or will take that away from him. Period.

    If Mr. Paul Pelosi is her husband, then he should be there. Especially since he is on her payroll to the tune of over 100 grand annually.
    Let's pray for some kind of miracle in hopes that she is defeated in the next election.

    I am 100% for Pres. Obama, however, Pelosi and Reid are two self centered politicos if I ever saw one. As a woman she is the biggest disappointment to me. I wish they both would disappear, they don't make like easy for our President, I think they were better to Busho.

  20. too many raging emotions

    Ok people, why are we attacking the people of 1549? Everyone on that crew deserves to be considered heroes, let's separate the fact that they are going from the fact they agree with Pelosi. I doubt they all do. They deserve the recognition for landing without any casualties.

  21. worriedmom

    Karen-Phoenix. You are scary to say everyone likes her a lot!!! You must be related to her to say that!!! Pelosi knows nothing of the working class, if she did, she would be taking a regular airline flight and spending her own money to go jotting around, not the taxpayers! Now I know what is wrong with this country when people like you are rooting for this woman

    I wish Nancy Pelosi would retire. She rammed this spending bill through congress to borrow $800 Billion from our children and grandchildren to fund her pet projects, not even giving anyone enough time to read the bill before voting. She is pathetic and should be ashamed of herself. If Obama wants change, the first most important change should be getting rid of Nancy Pelosi.

    @sniffit: If God had not been on hand, no amount of human intervention would have landed that flight safely. If you do not want to believe that, fine, but I really feel sorry for you. Period.

  24. Warren

    what can you say, she after all is a San-Fransisco Liberal, we are lucky that she did not invite Cindy Sheehan (who ran against her of course). I would have invited Oprah Winfrey though...she is da best...lol....

    GO OPRAH~
