Re: “Pelosi Is a Hypocrite

For Ms. Pelosi to have gone to St. Anthony's to make a political point is even more shameful.

I am a survivor of Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco. In more difficult times, I had to stand in line at St. Anthony's dining hall just to get through a day, sometimes after 2-3 days without food. I accept responsibility for my own actions leading me to those down times and made changes to lead to a better life for myself today. However, I know there are those who cannot do that without real help and more of that should come from faith-based organizations who already do so much with so little, rather than from tax-and-spend bureaucratic elite like her and other well-known and wealthy City (SF) liberals who are big on photo-ops and sound bites but noblesse oblige a la Marie Antoionette, with a modern version of "let them eat cake".

Why do people keep re-electing her. Why won't Republican leaders DEMAND she step down, even if she might prove a useful idiot for them in the coming months and years of the Obamanation.

Fox News or ANYBODY with media clout should get down to Golden Gate Avenue at "feeding time" and show the suffering. Tape it, broadcast and show the world Pelosi's failings within her own constituency. For all the blab about how the Dems overtalked homelessness during GWB's administration, it HAS NOT gone away, it is still there and ready for true journalists to expose.

While they're at it, they ought to go into what has taken place within the Polk Gulch since the late 70's through the 80's and how "gentrification" has displaced so many homeless, poor and runaway youth of which I was one. For all the "gay pride" that SF billboards, they have never shown the gay shame of keeping their rent boys a distance from their capital - The Castro. They never wanted the "seedy" side of their community to be seen beneath the big rainbow flag at the Milk MUNI station. Just as shameful as Princess Pelosi, if not moreso.

I want a TRUTH COMMISSION about these things! She is more than a hypocrite, she is a total FRAUD and absolutely a LIAR!
