    Re: Low level flight panics NY

    This sort of wastefulness costs the taxpayers thousands of dollars and must stop..
    No wonder we have such huge budget deficits.
    All for a silly un-necessary "photo-op"...
    We need men in Washington with the ability to think and to be fiscally responsible...

    As I am speaking as a civilian referring to one of the two jets used to carry the President, I think you know damn well what I'm talking about.

    Low-level flight panics New York

    The president was not on board the plane

    The White House has apologised after a low-level flight by a presidential jet and a fighter plane sparked panic among New York City office workers.

    The half-hour flight triggered the evacuation of a number of office buildings in the city.

    Pentagon officials said the fly past - a photographic exercise not involving President Obama - had been co-ordinated with city and state authorities.

    No general public notification was issued in advance.

    "While federal authorities took the proper steps to notify state and local authorities in New York and New Jersey, it's clear that the mission created confusion and disruption," Louis Caldera, director of the White House military office, said in a statement.

    "I apologise and take responsibility for any distress that flight caused."

    New Yorkers were startled as the planes flew over the city's harbour
    Correspondents say many New York residents are still scarred by the September 2001 attacks when airliners ploughed into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington DC.

    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he was "furious" about the incident, criticising those responsible for failing to warn the public.

    "The good news is it was nothing more than an inconsiderate, badly conceived and insensitive photo op with the taxpayers' money," said Mr Bloomberg.

    The Boeing 747 jet is one of two planes known as Air Force One when the US president is aboard.
    So yes, it was "Air Force 1" in the minds of every common person who sees that plain.

    You're entire defense of Obama here is nothing more than a word game.

    How pathetic.

    Just another faux pas by Obama. There has been many already and many more to come.

    yeah it is a pisser when the government is bitching out car execs for taking private planes and somehow this bs can happen. I think it is a prime example of a suborinite kissing up though. and i hope this general is throughly flogged.

    Edited to add. Collin Powell would have never considered such bs

    These kinds of flights also serve to keep up flight crew proficiency. Flying skills deteriorate rather quickly and simulators aren't the same as actual flight time.

    This stunt ranks right up there was our Idiot Rapist President shutting down LAX so he could get a haircut.
    Oh Christ STFU with the birth certificate conspiracy already

    We have enough problems dealing with real issues and how Obama is genuinely damaging the country without you trailer trash putting on your tin hats for proven-false hysteria which only drowns out the voices of reasonable people with thought out and rational objections.

    The jury is still out according to Joseph Farah and at least 360,000 petition signers.

    Everyone reading this column knows that the news service over which I preside has been virtually alone in covering one of the biggest electoral scandals in American history maybe the biggest.

    I'm talking about the question of Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility to serve as president.

    Even many of Obama's political opponents and harshest critics continue to pretend this is a non-issue, that it's a matter that has somehow been settled, that it is a question only people who wear tin-foil hats are discussing.

    I know that's not the case, given a petition I began demanding proof Obama is a "natural-born citizen" has now attracted more than 360,000 signees.

    Yet, the cover-up continues.
    The Obama eligibility cover-up

    My mind is broad and agile enough to accommodate discourse so that the final truth might be disclosed about this matter.

    Oh, my, my.

    Forgot to self-sedate this morning?

    Yep. My post hit the target dead on, a lased-illuminated JDAM strike if there ever was one.

    Meanwhile, our boob of a president is causing panic in a Democrat stronghold, but you have to defend his alleged American-ness, even though every single action he's taken since the election has served to harm the nation.

    But ya gotta attack me, because I have my own unique posting style.

    BTW, if it was "proven" false, I wouldn't be mentioning it.

    You need to review the defintion of the word "proof", okay?

    Meanwhile, you have a problem with people pointing out, in their own inimitably unique way, that our boob of a president has such an ignorant staff that they couldn't imagine using Photoshop to do the job?

    Why is that? Is it orders from Minitrue to deny the existence of Photoshop, or to merely deny the government uses it?

    I wonder what the carbon footprint was for this photo-op?

    Hey! This thread is about Stupid Obama's Ignorant Airshow, not Kenyan National Obama's Illegal Presidency.

    I brought that up because I know he understands Photoshop, I don't believe the thread should be hijacked.


    Oh. Is this the right thread to use the word "hijacked" on?
