Libs Outraged Over Paul Ryan’s $350 Bottle of Wine… But Were Silent When Nancy Pelosi Pounded Down $101,000 of Booze On “Pelosi One” …Update: And Obama Served $399 Bottles of Wine to Chi-Coms

For some reason the libs weren’t so outraged when Obaama served $399 bottles of wine at his taxpayer-funded state dinner.

But Libs today were “stunned” and “outraged” that popular conservative Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) ordered a $350 bottle of wine for dinner in New York.
TPM reported, via Ann Althouse:

When [Professor Feinberg] saw the label on the bottle of Jayer-Gilles 2004 Echezeaux Grand Cru Ryan’s table had ordered, she quickly looked it up on the wine list and saw that it sold for an eye-popping $350, the most expensive wine in the house along with one other with the same pricetag.

Feinberg, an economist by training, was even more appalled when the table ordered a second bottle….

“We were just stunned,” said Feinberg…

She was outraged….

Of course, these same hypocrites were silent when it was discovered that Speaker Pelosi’s military travel expenses on Pelosi One cost taxpayers $2,100,744.59 over a two-year period — $101,429.14 for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.
Judicial Watch reported:

Speaker Pelosi used Air Force aircraft to travel back to her district at an average cost of $28,210.51 per flight. The average cost of an international congressional delegation (CODEL) is $228,563.33. Of the 103 Pelosi-led CODELs, 31 trips included members of the House Speaker’s family.

One CODEL traveling from Washington, D.C. through Tel Aviv, Israel to Baghdad, Iraq from May 15-20, 2008, “to discuss matters of mutual concern with government leaders” included members of Congress and their spouses and cost $17,931 per hour in aircraft alone. Purchases for the CODEL included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.

    Is North Korea outraged about it too? Same thing, Eff the left

    Imagine going out with your spouse to celebrate a birthday, and watching her have a conniption over the label on a bottle of wine at somebody else’s table.

    The phrase “chopped liver” comes to mind.

    Professor Feinberg, an economist by training…
    oh. One needs to be an economist to peek at other people’s dinners?
    She got her PhD in Obnoxious.

  • wanumba

    Given that was Rep Paul Ryan (R), and it’s really weird someone sitting so close to his table would be THAT nosey, does “Prof Feinstein, an economist by training” work for THIS outfit that Jim posted earlier down the page today? She stalking Ryan? How ELSE did this get blown so fast across the internet?

    Since the dinner was in New York, the bill was not being paid by We The People. It is none of anyone’s business if Paul Ryan wants to buy 2 $350 bottles of wine for a dinner party. After all, IWonWTF has been known to serve $1000 bottles of wine at the White House – and WE pay for those!

  • squeaky

    from earlier this year…the price of the bottles being corrected from $199 to $399. if so, ryan is under by $49. one bottle on his tab while the hogs have been whole hogging it on our tab.

  • obfuscatenot

    Wow, the nerve of that woman. Ryan should have bread and water for a while when out in public and fondly refer to the meal as a “feinberg”. I suspect she’d have been fine with it, IF he’d have sent a bottle to her table as well. . . isn’t that how the Democrats do it? Just buy off the naysayers?

  • Granny

    Yeah, #10 – NYC restaurants that serve $350 bottles of wine aren’t exactly known for having much on the menu in the $20 price range . . one you get up into the $100 a bottle range it really is a moot point. Does she enlighten us as to how much HER wine cost? And I actually kind of wonder how long she dawdled leaning over the table to get a good look at the bottle. . .

  • Chisum

    Wow! Now the left demands that the right account for how they spend their own money?

    I guess they would have a case if Ryan was a tax cheat, like Charlie Rangel….but he’s not. Or if he was BO serving $400 bottles of wine at one of his lavish, TAXPAYER FUNDED, parties.

    I think this is hilarious. I smell desperation from the left.

  • gus

    Who the fukk is this k**t and how dare she eat at this high priced restaurant. What the fukk did this bitch have to eat. I want a list.

  • justpassingthrough

    Seems it was paid for without using taxpayers dollars.
    Looks like the cost was covered without increasing his personal debt or deficit.
    So bfd.

  • TXPatriot

    They aren’t “outraged.” They think WE will be outraged. Duh.

    Only thing they care about is scoring political points that they think will help them keep power. Everything else–ethics, morals, principles–makes absolutely no difference to them.

    When you figure that out, all of their behavior makes complete and perfect sense.

  • BubbaHotep

    I would hope that if anyone saw him dining out they would be happy to send a bottle to his table as a symbol of gratitude for his owning up to the principles and values we so desperately need.

  • Redwine

    What about Dear Leader Barry’s $1700 bottle of wine on his recent junket on OUR dime to the UK?

  • MaryW

    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods. If Paul Ryan is spending his own dime it is none of my business or anyone else’s what he spends on a bottle of wine.

  • justpassingthrough

    Wonder what kind of tipper Professor Feinberg is.

Who said that libs have taste??????????
