This thread should be dedicated to determining exactly what military planes Speaker Pelosi should get to use. To ask for a larger military jet during a time of war is pretty audacious. She votes against the Pentagon and Military and then she asks for a larger jet, what do you think they are going to tell her?

So to compensate for the initial bad behavior by our Armed Services I think Speaker Pelosi is owed a Squadron of B-52's accompanied by a pair of blue angels and a stealth fighter. What do you guys think? Would this be the right set of aircraft for such a woman?

She and all bloodsucking politicians should ride commercial liners with the rest of us. Why should my tax dollars pay for their splendor?

Perhaps we should just elect 50 cent, Lil John and the Cash Money Millionaires. At least they can pay for their own abuses. Congress would be just as corrupt but maybe you and I could get a tax cut or two.

I completely agree, our tax dollars shouldn't pay for Pelosi's friends. I like the idea of the congress going hip hop but without Pelosi it just wouldn't have the same flair.

I still think it would be funny to see the Air Force give her 5 star treatment for the next couple weeks complete with military escorts, lol.

I say give her a Cessna 172. That would be an interesting flight back to the west coast.

So off to PTS we go...

Nancy can enjoy the ride on this.

Too funny, I like how she said she isn't getting a bigger plane because she is a woman, I thought it was because she votes against the troops. Justice is sweet sometimes. This is not the behavior of a leader regardless of gender.

I think it's good that Nancy speaks up and let's the troops know who comes 1st,... her!

I could care less what Pelosi does, but hey she is second in line of succession to the presidency lol.... Speaking of presidency, we have two specifically configured, highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft carrying an idiot around.
... so what's the big deal anyway?

I agree, this politicians are not royalty they are people serving the population they are not better than you or me.

Only the president and vice president should have the privilege of their status.

The rest can ride the bus for what I care:Lil:


Oops, I forgot she is after all third in the royal line for the throne.

A few tongue-in-cheek ideas:

*She should be given a blank sheet of paper and told to fold herself an airplane of her own choosing.

*She should walk (time is better spent).

*She should ride a bicycle.

*A Sopwith Camel

*A Russian Trabant

*She could ride on one of those balsawood/rubberband jobs.

*She could stay in California and telecommute (and that goes for the other politicians as well).

Maybe the Space Blimp our government was working on was actually going to be used for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's form of domestic trasport. She's probably upset because first they cancelled her space blimp only later on to cancel her Lincoln Bedroom of the air, I'd be pissed too, lol.

didn't dennis hastert get to ride on a military jet as well?

why are the republicans making this double standard for pelosi?



After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Pentagon agreed to provide the House speaker, who is second in the line of presidential succession, with a military plane for added security during trips back home. Former House Speaker
Dennis Hastert, an Illinois Republican, flew in a small commuter-sized Air Force jet.


hmmm

Sounds like she has plenty of conspiracy theories of her own over this. The story goes she was provided with a military jet but it wasn't large enough to accomodate her so she asked for a larger military jet.

If Pelosi isn't going to pay for Military equiptment for our troops why should our troops sacrafice military aircraft for her?

Im a registered Republican. Did you happen to miss my "double standard?"
Look 2 or 3 posts up.

Just because some fat guy behind a mic wants to be a blowhard doesnt mean this is some Republican POV. Arent you constantly posting "not all Muslims are extremists" responses? If not Im sorry, but I think I recognize your avatar. Anyway, the same applies here. Dont stereotype all of a group when it fits your POV or agenda. Its wrong and sooner or later it makes its way back and youll find yourself in a similar position as I am right now. Needlessly defending yourself against a hollow stereotype.

EDIT

I checked, the posts I was referring to dont seem to be from you. Sorry for the assumption. The basic point stands though. For everyone. Sooner or later we all get stuck in a stereotype or being preemptively typecast.
Again, sorry for the misidentification.

Well, I suppose I'll put my two cents in on this.

Personally, I think we should just buy a jumbojet, and put all the
politician on it, and they can get dropped off at the airport in there
home state.

That way costs are reduced a great deal, and than we set it up so
only as many of them that can ever fit on it our allowed to go
home and not do there job.



Now, onto the topic itself, from what I understand she just wants a
bigger one so she can fly nonstop from DC to California, but the
guy she replaced lived in Chicago so he had a smaller plane, since
the distance was considerably less.

Pelosi should get the exact same plane that Hastert had. However, America’s grandmother and global warming crusader isn't so concerned about global warming after all. The plane she wants produces tons more carbon dioxide than Hastert’s old plane. It’s just another perfect, shinning example of how liberals b_t_h, whine, and complain about what everyone else does but, at the same time, they are exempt from their own rules and criticism. Consider these tidbits:

Nancy Pelosi Rides a Gas-Guzzling SUV to a ... Global-Warming Hearing!


"I promise to do everything in my power to achieve energy independence ... and to stop global warming," Pelosi said.
Pelosi Creates Global Warming Committee


Hey Nancy, REPUBLICAN Hastert’s plane was more environmentally friendly than the plane you want. You and your demoncrat henchmen do not really care about the environment as you try to pass off that you do. But wait! I remember the official demoncrat philosophy: Do as I say, not as I do!

No, the same amount of fuel would be used if she used Hasterts old plane.



The reasons she wants a biger plane is because she lives on the other
side of the country, and Hastert only lived in Michigan or somewhere
abouts.

Since he lived closer his plane waas smaller.

If Pelosi uses his plane, she'll have to stop a few times along the way
to refuel.
Therefore the same amount of fuel will be used, and it would be more
dangerous, since she'd be stopping at so many unsecured places.

No! You are wrong! Hastert's plane was smaller and lighter and has smaller engines. That means less drag and less weight to push forward.

Hastert's old plane is capable of cross country flights depending on headwind.

"A few times" At most that plane would have to stop once...ONCE! Furthermore, incase you haven't noticed, there are many U.S. Air Force bases in this country several of which lie along the flight path from San Fran to D.C. Whiteman would be just about right. She wouldn't be stopping just any place. She would be stopping at an Air Force base. Also, demon-crats want everybody else to sacrifice in the name of global warming but once again, they are exept. GD elitists

Hmmmm How about one of those big ol' C-130's? That way theres tons of room! .. and all the little seats lined against the wall means lots of space for people to sit.. and the big cargo space you can throw a desk, bolt it down and bam. Got a work station. Orrrr... Or we could give her some old WW2 planes that might just be sitting around. Of course.. I kinda have the impression what she reallly wants is a fleet of Gulf Stream aircraft.
