Boehner (R) to Continue Flying Commercial

I think this sets the correct tone. It would have looked pretty bad to change his mind, even with the 'fig leaf' of security. Had the shooting over the weekend been part of some larger attempt to destroy Congress it would be different, but that does not appear to be the case.


"Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will continue to fly commercially despite the security concerns that came about after Saturday's shooting in Tucson, Ariz.

Boehner's spokesman Michael Steel told The Hill that the Speaker had no intention to reconsider a decision he previously made to forgo the use of a private jet for transportation to and from his Ohio district."
