CNN's Jack Cafferty: Nancy Pelosi Is A Horrible Woman

True unemployment is over 17% in this country and approaches 20% in several states. People are losing their homes to foreclosure by the millions. Citizens are finding it next to impossible to access credit because of the out of control borrowing and frivolous spending by this Congress and the current Obama administration.

Americans are hurting in this terrible economy made even worse by the bone headed policies of Obama and his Democrat allies in Congress but that didn’t stop Pelosi from blowing hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars dollars to wisk a bunch of her buddies off to that completely useless Copenhagen climate change farce last month “in luxurious comfort.”

It would be fortunate if voters would remember this story when Pelosi, who is one of the wealthiest members of Congress–net worth of at least tens of millions–yet demands the Air Force provide her with first class transportation whenever she snaps her fingers, is up for reelection but sadly she is safely ensconced in her district for as long as she wishes to run.

cbsnews.com–Few would argue with the U.S. having a presence at the Copenhagen Climate Summit. But wait until you hear what we found about how many in Congress got all-expense paid trips to Denmark on your dime.

CBS investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports that cameras spotted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the summit. She called the shots on who got to go. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and embattled Chairman of the Tax Committee Charles Rangel were also there.

They were joined by 17 colleagues: Democrats: Waxman, Miller, Markey, Gordon, Levin, Blumenauer, DeGette, Inslee, Ryan, Butterfield, Cleaver, Giffords, and Republicans: Barton, Upton, Moore Capito, Sullivan, Blackburn and Sensenbrenner.

That’s not the half of it. But finding out more was a bit like trying to get the keys to Ft. Knox. Many referred us to Speaker Pelosi who wouldn’t agree to an interview. Her office said it “will comply with disclosure requirements” but wouldn’t give us cost estimates or even tell us where they all stayed.

Senator Inhofe (R-OK) is one of the few who provided us any detail. He attended the summit on his own for just a few hours, to give an “opposing view.”

“They’re going because it’s the biggest party of the year,” Sen. Inhofe said. “The worst thing that happened there is they ran out of caviar.”

Our investigation found that the congressional delegation was so large, it needed three military jets: two 737’s and a Gulfstream Five — up to 64 passengers — traveling in luxurious comfort.

Add senators and staff, most of whom flew commercial, and we counted at least 101 Congress-related attendees….(read the rest here)

    Nancy Pelosi and all henchmen and henchwomen need to be run
    out of Washington on a rail…like the scene from ‘O Brother Where
    Art Thou’. If real accurate science was applied to the Global Warming issue,
    we would soon thwart the current efforts to reinvent the environment.
    Science has proved that Mt. Penatubo and Mt. St. Helen changed
    the world’s weather patterns dramatically in a matter of seconds, by introducing
    Sulfur Dioxide into the atmosphere which caused a cooling effect. It has
    been estimated that fixing the Earth’s environmental woes would
    cost over 1 trillion dollars. Some scientist have been researching alternatives
    methods for using Geoscientific methods such as seeding
    clouds over oceans to create a cooling effect. This is purported
    to cost much less than the alternative. We need to stop drinking
    the environmentalist ‘cool aid’ and use common sense when it comes
    to solving this extraordinary challenge. Even if the US takes a lead
    in environmental clean up, we have to convince emerging
    world power China and other offenders to get in step or our
    efforts will be wasted.
