    Comeon, have some more class than that. I would like to see your spilled milk comparison if either of the following applied to you 1.) You were in lower Manhattan on September 11th, 2.) Had a loved one in lower Manhattan on September 11th or god forbid actually in either one of the towers.

    The nightmares/panic attacks and every other PTSD syndrome are a very real consequence remaining from that day. Tell the children who wake up crying for their dad every night and the mother who stays awake with them crying that they are crying over 'spilled milk' Absolutely absurd.

    There is still a large majority of the population that just does not grasp the psychological impact that an event of that magnitude has on the general populace. I was absolutely shocked/apalled and felt like I was there that day even though I was sitting 600 miles away in study hall with no relatives or anyone I knew in lower Manhattan. I guess some of us just have more compassion and morality than others.

    Had you read through the thread you would know my history of living in NYC. I was there for the first bombing (that I did not mention in this thread). And you would know I did lose friends in the second attack. As a matter of fact my niece and brother were at the WTC the day before for a ballet recital. So you tell me all about it. And you tell me all about terrorist building bombs in your neighborhood that would have most likely killed you in the event they had gone off. No I do not take this lightly. What happened was the equivalent of spilled milk in the PR world.


    Oh did I mention I actually worked in the media biz in NYC?

    Ok, that is good and important to know, none the less are you just so hard and stoic that this didn't adversly effect you? You still didn't explain your crying over spilled milk analogy

    I'm sorry but I did explain:

    No I was not making a joke. No harm was done beyond spilled milk and an apology was issued. It could have been a much better PR event had the flight been announced but in the end no substantial harm was done.

    Was it stupid as **** not to announce the flight, YES. I bet New Yorkers would have been proud to see Air Force One flying around Manhattan. Speaking as a former New Yorker myself I know I would have been whom ever was President.

    The president was not on board the flight, which was organised to take photographs of Air Force One against the New York skyline.
    This is why you weren’t supposed to vote for Obama.

    He either didn't know about the flight and thus does not have control over critical military assets, or he's a complete imbecile for thinking this was a good thing to do.

    It's exactly like a trusted police officer passing his hand over the crotch of a woman who was raped.

    I mean damn, how out of touch are those people who arranged that, that they wouldn't even think of how it would effect that area?
    That would have made AF1 a target.

    Our incredible tech-savvy President.

    Only uses photoshop on his birth certificate, can't imagine it could be used for real photographs, like, say, maybe, AF1 over New York.

    This stunt ranks right up there was our Idiot Rapist President shutting down LAX so he could get a haircut.
