Pelosi: Sequestration Preventing Me from Visiting Troops on Mother's Day Daniel Halper May 9, 2013 2:26 PM

Nancy Pelosi indicated she would be visiting troops this weekend but for sequestration:

"Every year for the past few years, on Mother's Day, I've gone--I've taken a delegation--into Afghanistan or Iraq, we're alternating now, now Afghanistan--for Mother's Day to say thank you to our moms and, by the way, our grandmothers, who are serving there. Some young grandmothers. But, nonetheless, grandmothers. To also thank all of our troops for what they do to protect America's families. I won't be going this particular weekend because we don't have--you know, under sequestration, we don't have codels."

She could just swim out to greet the troop ship, like the old days.

If I ware in Afghanistan and had the choice to be left alone for Mother’s Day or get to meet someone who wants to take my 2A rights away at home, it would be a no brainier.

With a net worth north of $58M, Pelosi can pick up her own tab.

What is the point of her visiting troops on MD?

Is it because she’s like their mother?

“How she gets away with saying this kind of stuff dumbfounds me........”

If only a Republican member of the House would speak out on this absurd comment.

If she really wants to visit troops on Mother’s Day there are many bases within easy driving distance of the Capitol. Boehner should send her a letter with driving directions from the Capitol to Fort Belvoir, Andrews Air Force Base, Fort McNair, the Marine Barracks at Eight and I, the Washington Navy Yard, Marine Corps Base Quantico, Naval Support Facility Anacostia, Bolling Field, Fort Myer, Fort Lee, Naval Station Norfolk, joint base Langley-Eustis, Fort Meade, Fort Detrick, Fort A.P. Hill, Patuxet River Naval Air Station, U.S. Naval Academy, or the Yorktown Naval Weapons station. If she really wants to meet with some troops from Afghanistan, she could always run out to Walter Reed Hospital, which is only 6.4 miles from her DC office, and see the real heroes.

I’m not holding my breath for a Republican response.

Sounds like she is trying to promote herself.

"Look at me I want to visit the troops because I'm so wonderful!...but I can't because the evil Republicans are making me too poor to travel!"

That is what I keep telling myself about the entire bunch of crap up there. Eternity is a whole lot longer than the time we spend on this planet. It’s going to be really hot where they have to spend it.

The only reason she’s not flying US Gov’t Air First Class is because the in-flight liquor supply has been sequestered.

Yeah, maybe she should have saved some of the money she spent on booze, food, and multiple trips back to Sodom to spend on actually doing her job... whatever that is. Since when do politicians need to visit troops anyway? How about bringing them home and making sure their votes are counted.

BS. That's just a cover story. Her broom is probably in the shop for maintenance and she is just to embarrassed to admit it. /s

You’ve got to be kidding me? She is worth hundreds of millions of dollars and she can’t afford to fly herself there to honor the troops?

Cost her couple of thousand dollars tops maybe ten.

She bilked taxpayers out of hundreds of thousands of dollars flying on the plane she demanded when she was House Maj leader, her bar bill alone cost thousands.

When she was SOTH she flew cross-country each weekend to visit her district ... at our expense! I hope she has to ride her broom now.

to say thank you to our moms and, by the way, our grandmothers, who are serving there

So you don't say "thank you" to the men who are husbands, fathers and sons when you are there, you stupid, sexist b__tch? Thank God sequestration is keeping this witch away from our troops.
