#1 Pelosi's office has not yet responded to requests for comment.
When the phone don't ring, you'll know it's her...

#4 First off the speaker should be entitled to the same access for someone of her stature (3rd in line). This sounds more and more like a a power play on her part to demand equality with the President. Love to see how thie sheep-fight ends. My money is on Pelosi.

#5 Sarge, IIUC most of those requests were under Bush. Not that she's cut back on them, just that it started long before Obama.

#6 The support started after 9/11. Given that Pelosi et al think there really isn't a war or threat anymore, the rationale for the support is moot. Let's remember the next time Nancy is whining about Executive 'privilege' to bring up her Legislative 'privilege' acts as well when discussing encroachment across governmental branch lines.

#7 I'll be interested in the details of her requests to fly 'her colleagues and family' around the country. Where, when, and how often were their flights.....
