I certainly don't think Obama could make poor people prosperous, nor do I think any of his opponents can.
I do, however, believe in pummeling this idea that poor people are poor because they deserve it, which at one point was the sentiment.
Why yes, yes they can.You mean that Obama's staff can take Air force ONE on a joyride over Manhattan without his knowledge?
I bet they also take his dog out to poop without his knowledge.
I bet they sometimes cop a feel on his wife, without his knowledge
I bet they also refuel his Presidential limo without his knowledge.
I bet Photo Opportunities, like this one, are planned and carried out without his knowledge all the time.
Of course it does. Dear Leader (CelticLord, Copyrighted 2009) cannot expand his diabolical plan and enslave the American people (starting with their wallet) if he is blameworthy. I mean get real Dear Leader, knows how to play the Lenin-Fiddle. First the Tax-Payer, then the wussiness (Mr. V, Copyrighted 2009) New York civilians, who just though.. hahah... that a plane was going to crash into their Starbucks(es?).This looks more like pointing the finger of BLAME than any form of apology or taking responsibility to me dude. But then, I don't wallow in denial either trying to defend this Community Organizers gross incompetence.
Bold: You are infringing on Copyright.Carry on; it is comforting to know that the smartest man on the planet, our dear leader, is so well informed by his OWN staff and has such good control over his OWN aircraft.
No one thinks Obama is the smartest man on the planet. Get over it.
Not too sure if you are trying to infer something about me here, so I will just leave it as is... you making an ass of yourself. So... how was the play Mrs Lincoln?You just cannot fabricate the level of denial and spin we are now getting from the same Liberal Bush Bashers who spent every waking moment impugning Bush for everything from Natural Disasters to terrorist attacks planned during Clinton's Presidency.
"I do not underestimate the ability of fanatical groups of terrorists to kill and destroy, but they do not threaten the life of the nation. Whether we would survive Hitler hung in the balance, but there is no doubt that we shall survive al-Qa'ida." -- Lord Hoffmann
"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)
Here's the photo taken from the chase plane.
I saw a tiny article in the LA Times on about page 4 how furious Obama was about the whole affair and now attempting to form a committee to find out how this happened.
Here are a few of the questions I want to have answered;
Can anyone other than the President authorize the use of President One? If so who also has the authority?
Did the current President (I don't think this is Bush's fault but the story is relatively new and Liberals may find a way to eventually link him to this incident) have any knowledge of this fly-over?
Who was on board the aircraft as it made this joyride over Manhattan frightening the hell out of many of Obama's own constituents?
What was the EXACT purpose of this "photo-op?"
I notice that the Press has more interest in what were Obama's "surprises", disappointments", "enchantments" and "humbling" experiences, but I really want to know what level of arrogance, incompetence and lunacy gripped his administration to come up with an idea this damned idiotic.
P.S., his answer to the "surprises" question basically boiled down to this: "I had NO possible idea what this job REALLY entailed and am totally overwhelmed by it having had little to NO experience in running anything."
You just cannot fabricate this level of incompetence.
One thing I forgot to mention. They claimed that it was for a photo-op, but it was clearly hazy that morning IIRC.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
I heard he was looking for an Air Force One Czar to make sure it never happened again.
Seriously.... A lot of people had to know and approve of this stunt. There are only two "Air Force Ones" and both, from what I understand, go on every trip the president makes. To get approval for this "photo op", someone had to find out if Obama was taking a trip that morning. If he was, this plane couldn't be in New York. Someone very high in the Obama administration knew about this. Of course, we'll never know because lesser heads will roll for it.
