    Maybe what Pelosi should do is invite real hard working Americans that not only pay her salary, but the salary of most of the other crooks in this administration.

    How much of our tax dollars were spent fetching and toting these fools on her guest list? Rip up your aarp card and NEVER join a union.

    Well, that is about the most liberal, special interest, pro-entitlement-programs group one could posibly assemble. Huh, I wonder why the national debt has quadrupled in the last year?

    I'm fine with her family members being there. This is a big event.
    What's with the unions and racists (La Raza and NAACP) though?

    Now we see the real Pelosi. This is the side of her that should make us all barf. What a two-faced woman she is. Course, that is a requirement to be a Democrat.
