Practice what you preach, Nancy!


Liberals talk about children and the poor when they want to use them to score political points, but in reality they couldn't care less. If they did, they wouldn't advocate ripping little babies limb from limb and they would live modestly the way they keep telling the rest of us to do. (Turn down your thermostat, take Metro, get rid of your gas guzzler, only use two sheets when you wipe, etc. etc. ad nauseum.) But Nancy Pelosi deserves a special award for hypocrisy as this article shows. She spends almost $1000 a week of the taxpayers money just on her travel boondoggles where she serves high end liquor and fancy food on her government transport.

Take a look at this excerpt from Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch said the newly obtained 2,000 pages of documentation show Pelosi's military travel cost the U.S. Air Force $2,100,744.59 over two years – including $101,429.14 for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.

Among the newest highlights revealed:

Pelosi used Air Force aircraft to travel back to her district at an average cost of $28,210.51 per flight. Of 103 Pelosi-led congressional delegations (CODEL), 31 trips included members of the House speaker's family.

One CODEL traveling from Washington, D.C., through Tel Aviv, Israel, to Baghdad, Iraq, May 15-20, 2008, "to discuss matters of mutual concern with government leaders" included members of Congress and their spouses and cost $17,931 per hour in aircraft alone. This flight included the purchase of the long list of alcoholic drinks.

According to a "Memo for Record" from a March 29-April 7, 2007, CODEL that involved a stop in Israel, "CODEL could only bring kosher items into the hotel. Kosher alcohol for mixing beverages in the delegation room was purchased on the local economy i.e. bourbon, whiskey, scotch, vodka, gin, triple sec, tequila, etc.
We all know that corruption isn't limited to Democrats and there's plenty of criticism to go around on both sides of the aisle. But the Democrats set themselves up as the ones who stand for the little guy. What a crock! The poor are just convenient props while they attack the rich which never includes them. They, we are told, are public "servants." Have you noticed much serving on their parts? Nancy uses the military as her personal house boys (and girls). She needs to be retired in disgrace for her corrupt practices.
