    In all honesty, a fitting way for that socialist sow to go out.

    BY MALIA ZIMMERMAN – 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.

    I obviously didn't read it. That's why I asked.

    Now it would have taken you just as much time to answer my question, but instead you took the low road.

    Why?

    The article does not mention who paid for her hotel. I suspect that Pelosi paid it. The cost to the taxpayers, and to Hawaiian taxpayers who will be picking up the tab for policing her holiday, is - I suspect - the issue. And, while members of congress are entitled to holidays, of course - I have to wonder whether it is appropriate to be spending considerable sums of taxpayers money during a recession. And.... I would be saying the same thing if it were a Republican.

    Agreed.

    All of our elected officials have no problem spending taxpayer dollars.

    One has to wonder how much actual traveling they would do if the cost came out of their pockets??
