A Mean-Spirited Attack on Queen Pelosi

In this new age where we're complaining about corporate executives flying around on corporate jets, some on tax payer money, I like to bring up another executive who is flying around on jets on the government dime - Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The mean-spirited Judicial Watch points out the Pelosi and her colleagues use the US Air Force as their personal airline.

The air fleet has been used by the previous Speaker of the House since 9-11 for security reasons, but Judicial Watch says Pelosi is "notorious" for demanding high-end aircraft like the Gulfstream 5 (G5) jet, and also making last-minute cancellations which adds additional expenses for the military.

In an email to the military, a House aid insisted: It is my understanding there are NO G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess. This is totally unacceptable ... The Speaker will want to know where the planes are...

In another email, when a certain type of aircraft was unavailable, the aide wrote: This is not good news, and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset Speaker.

So the double-standard continues, one standard for Democrats, and another standard for the rest of us.

Isn't this how most dictatorships start?
