Pelosi's face is the same look I saw yesterday on TV in a clip where she dismisses a question about C-span and Obama's promises of transparency by saying, with a shrug, "There are many things that are promised on the campaign trail", as if they are of no consequence. They would be, for a man of his word.

Why might the video not be on youtube for long? Is there a way to download and save this video?
I think this video is very powerful, but don't see that aiming it at Democrats alone is very good. I agree with Glenn Beck, once again, in his saying yesterday that Republicans aren't, and haven't accomplished a lot for us. He talked bad about Congress and never mentioned either party in his talk. I don't think that makes us libertarian but just that we don't like the Congress our nation has elected and allowed to go off the deep end too many times.

The first man who suggested that this may not remain on YouTube much longer said that because we have seen things jerked, usually for political pressure. Oh yes, it has happened under the cover of other pressures.

Nancy's face, when she said those words, was one of the ugliest sights I have seen lately. She has to be put out of that chair she has been in for 3 years doing all that transparent governing.

I felt exactly as you southward bound, the pain that some are feeling, and despair. The pain of hopes diminishing. Pelosi seems to dismiss a lot of things, she thinks she can explain. I am sure some feel betrayed. I would like to see this video, on our TV STATIONS at night. Never Happen though.

Only Fox News would have the guts to run something like that and they are slipping toward something else lately.
