    Where does my liking the person come into play here at all?

    Yeah, Bush made a mistake. Do you agree with him?

    It is striking how pelosi really seems to go out of her way to abuse the privilege, well above and beyond her predecessor.

    The queen must have her perks...

    Seriously, is there a congress critter more arrogant then this bitch?
    Perks? Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.

    Sounds like she and her bunch are good candidates for AA.

    That's part of what us taxpayers paid for... alcohol and food.

    I have no problem with Pelosi and a few of her immediate staff, say 4, traveling on air force jets. She is no different than the president of a corporation and I believe they have every right and the responsibility to travel as they do.

    I DO have a problem with paying for food and alcohol for all of them. I also have a problem paying to fly Pelosi's or any other politician's family around the world and feed them. If they want to fly with Pelosi, they need to pay. It's not like she can't afford it.

    I also find in funny and hypocritical that Pelosi and the other congress critters that she runs lambasting the CEOs of GM, Ford, and Chrysler for flying to Washington, D.C. for their meeting, then happily hopping on a plane Friday afternoon to go home at taxpayer's expense.

    we did it for hastert, we've done it for many of them. this is just not a partisan issue. i agree they should be much more austere.

    as for the hypocrisy, i sure don't see it.

    It shouldn't be done for any of them.

    You don't see the hypocrisy in blasting the CEOs for flying to Washington at their corporation's expense, yet happily flying all over the world with all their family and friends at our expense???????
