    Instead of apologizing for his administrations actions he ran out found someone to blame and made them apologize.
    Once again showing Obama is not President material.

    Whenever he can use a stituation to aggrandize himself he does..whenever it hurts him he drops it on someone else. Whenever he is unsure how it will play out he authorizes(not orders) someone else to make the decisions.

    With Obama-

    This situation is unreal. It is utterly detestable that the Obama administration did something like this. Hello?!?!?!?!?! Does anybody over there have a freaking brain in their heads?!?!?!?! I am no defender of George W. Bush, I think he was an awful president. But think for a second, imagine if George W. Bush did this. The media would be all over him. Yet, Obama pretty much gets a free pass, except for Hannity and Glenn Beck. Just goes to show how awful the corporate media is and how much of an idiot Obama is.

    No of course not. Commercial airliners or private aircraft at that are not allowed to fly that low anywhere let alone NYC. During flight when not nearing the destination airport, its a standard requirement that planes maintain an altitude of about 26-30 odd thousand feet (something along those regions it varies from country to country). Regardless, this isnt your average private aircraft or your commerial airliner. Its the presidents plane, and they can get special clearance whenever they want to.

    It's restricted airspace, one should not be seeing a plane over New York that low.

    In the only clip of Obama responding to the flyover, I heard him apologize and insist it would not happen again. The "blaming", and "aggrandizing" you so eagerly condemn apparently occurred only within your opinionated mind.

    The scheduling of the flight, and the decision to make it, did not originate within the White House, but in the branch of the military which maintains government transportation. Your instant assignment of blame for this incident to the president is transparently partisan and misplaced.

    President Obama said:
    “It was a mistake, as was stated. It was something we found out about along with all of you, and it will not happen again.”
    Obama Calls Air Force Flyover a ‘Mistake’ - City Room Blog - NYTimes.com

    Video-
    Obama We made a Mistake NY fly over - Google News

    Is what he said.
    Its not an apology.
    It also backs up my opinion with an example of how he sidesteps.

    ...

    As for the bit where this office or that did this or that.
    They are his responsibilty. What they do they do in his name. When they f'up..HE apologizes and HE takes responsibility.
    Its what President of the United States do.

    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.

    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.


    Easy tex. It's the internet. We are all friends.



    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.




    No what is pathetic tex is that you think that The Good Reverend is defending Obama here.....


    You should know me better than that!
