Why All The Anger at Speaker Pelosi?

United States

Yes, she carries the water for the president sometimes and works to balance the left and moderate wings of the Hopuse Democrats, but I cannot remember the same level of anger and hatred against other speakers. Is it because she is the first House speaker to be ... dare I say it... an Italian-American? Speak up folks... why?

I resent the Italian - American implication. Why would she not just be American? Until we all quit separating ourselves with hyphenated names we will never be a united nation. I despise her because she is a liar, abuses her power, does nothing to earn her keep and all in all is useless. Her family comes from Baltimore Maryland and has a very dubious past. She is also the Pelosi that is starving people to save the Delta Smelt - interestingly enough her vineyards still have plenty of water. This was once the richest land in American and lead food production in over 15 categories. Now these productive citizens are standing in line for over 6 hours to get food hand outs that were grown in China. She is also the Pelosi that keeps an air force jet at the ready so she can fly back and forth to California whenever she wants to while at the same time she berating citizens for having a carbon footprint. She is the worst speaker of the house in history, California should be ashamed for putting her in office and the dems should run from her like the plague. She is a plague!

Er.. could it possibly be her politics? Can't see what's happening to this country? Where we're headed? You must be like I used to be and only watch one side of the news.. News is only supposed to report some things.. that's a clue as to where the wind's a blowin'.. And so many seem happy (and oblivious) about it.. (Just because some in hollywood like Chavez, doesn't mean we need any here). Regardless of what the media thinks we need (at least) two (strong) parties, cause checks (and balance) on power is the only safe government (til they get too big).

I personally think its a combination of her being Italian-American and a women dare I say that! Its really bad when so many people are not happy with her or Obama, but they were ok with Bush and his people? I just don't get it all.

Because she abuses her power. She insists on being given things such as airplanes and new everything that do nothing but waste tax payer money, money for things that should not be given to her. She comes out to the public and lies, lies lies and that is why people hate her.

The woman is a total waste of space. I do not care what her ancestry is. She is and has proved herself to be a liar. My only hope is that the the voters in her district are as disgusted with her as the majority of us Americans - and political party has nothing to do with it - and that they vote her out big time at the next election. She wouldn;t have the decency to rresign before then. she too stuck on herself and doesn;t have that much decency in her entire body.

"Is it because she is the first House speaker to be ... dare I say it... an Italian-American?" I do hope that was tongue in cheek and not a serious statement. I cannot remember this level of hatred either, but then, i cannot remember a worse or disgustingly corrupt and arrogent house speaker eitther. Pelosi is a shining example of the corruption and arrogence that has taken over our congress.
