    Obama Inauguration Sets Record for Private Jets

    The Wealth Report - WSJ.com : Obama Inauguration Sets Record for Private Jets
    According to an article in Bloomberg, as many as 600 private jets were expected to touch down in D.C. for the inauguration.
    ...

    “That would set a record, topping the 300 the airport accommodated for President George W. Bush’s 2004 inaugural,”
    Couldn't they take the train or carpool? After all this is the guy who is an Algore Global Warming believer.

    Think he could have sent a memo to the effect that corporate jets are the poster boy of greed and pollution?

    After all, shouldn't the prez set the example. Shouldn't His minions walk the walk?

    If not his Trons first, who then?

    Tsk, tsk.

    Can you say "Carbon Offset"?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Anyone can say Carbon offset.
    It takes a person who is genuinely concerned to actually do something about their own Carbon Imprint.
    Wonder if Gore came by jet?
    Big problem with Democrats, they say the words, expect the broad mass of their electorate to do what they say, but always neglect to follow their own words.

    Obama wasn't president at the time, and even if he was, he has no control over celebrities actions. I agree that many of the celebrities attending are hypocrites, but trying to claim its Obama's fault is both false and slimy. You might appear less hyper-partisan if you at least let him actually do something as president before starting the attacks.

    LOL.

    No controlling legal authority.
    He couldn't get some staffer to get on the horn to those VIP's and tell them to tow the line?
    Get on board?
    Leave your car at home and take mass transit?
    Set an example?

    Sure he could.
    He could have provided leadership.
    Change... even.

    As for Carbon Footprints... my goal in life is to have a bigger one than Algore.

    Do you think he even knew what the specific travel plans of every person attending were? Was he supposed to look into his crystal ball and see who was going to come in a jet?

    Are you going to blame your spilled coffee on Obama next? It makes about as much sense.

    Obama is a whipping boy for conservatives and will be far,far away from the left, wait and see.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Do you mean that Obama is going to take the punishment that the conservatives deserved?

    How do you know he didn't say anything and those people just ignored him and used their freedom to do what they wanted. You are saying he should have somehow knew about it and then didn't do anything about it- back it up and prove it. Otherwise, you look rather......silly.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I think the word you're looking for is 'hypocricy', and the target you need to apply it to is 'the left'.
