Compare and Contrast

John Boehner begins his term in office by cutting the budget to run the House by $35 million dollars. He decided to skip the party put on by one of the freshmen representatives and begins the day by vacuuming his apartment.

By contrast, outgoing speaker Nancy Pelosi, the one who commuted from Washington to San Francisco on a luxurious government C-32 (757) jet, treating the Air Force like her personal airline, spent her last days at a $10,000 a night Hawaiian resort.
Nancy Pelosi’s final days as Speaker of the House were spent at the exotic Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu in Kona on the island of Hawaii.

Escorted throughout her trip by a mini security motorcade that included Secret Service and Hawaii County Police officers, Pelosi was seen at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Kailua-Kona, where she received Communion. Parishioners greeted her warmly, Hawaii Reporter was told. Two police SUVs were on guard outside the hotel during her week long stay.

Pelosi, who traveled to Hawaii by private plane, spent the holidays in Kona last year at the same hotel in an elaborate suite that reportedly rents for $10,000 a night.

The Four Seasons Resort Hualalai’s details its luxurious setting and amenities on its web site: “Gloriously revitalised, this natural tropical paradise offers more than ever to explore – with a newly expanded Spa, beachfront dining, fashion boutiques and new Deluxe Suites, in addition to Jack Nicklaus signature golf. Set on the Big Island’s exclusive Kona-Kohala Coast, this showpiece resort captures the essence of Hawaiian design, culture and tradition.”

The contrast is stunning.  Note that the article was carried by a local paper, the Hawaii Reporter, not any of the major media outlets.  If not for the Drudge Report, no one would know.  It's the way that the MSM slants the news best; by NOT COVERING things that reflect badly on their side of the political spectrum.

Instead, the big news is that the skipper of a carrier made raunchy movies to boost the morale of the troops a few years ago, thanks the the intrepid Virginian Pilot and its brain damaged staff.

Since the MSM is useless as a source of information and positively harmful as a propaganda tool, the Navy people in Tidewater Virginia should consider dropping their subscriptions.

You have to wonder about the sanity of a woman who can stand in front of the cameras and say that the House under her leadership operated on a pay as you go basis.

As to the Enterprise captain, curious as to the timing of the four year old video release right on the heals of repeal of DADT.
