    You are absolutely correct, but it is so depressing I can't even give it a 'like'.

    Good lord, Aunty Spiker, you seriously need to put a Socks in it!

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    I gotta give it to the Dems on that, they stick together like glue. Whether a policy is good, practical or useful is completely irrelevant. The primary objective is to win the politcs and get it into law. Then go to your constituents and say, "See what we did for you? Keep voting for us, we're doing great things." Have you ever met a Democrat that said the government has ever done anything wrong? I haven't.

    Not only do they stick together but they will be vilified for the rest of their lives if they dare break ranks.

    Yes, Democrats will always defend the indefensible, which leads to the answer of why they are Democrats. Leftists are all pretty much the same no matter which country they are in. It's really an interesting phenomenon and one related, it seems, to a form of mental illness.

    You have no knowledge how America's Presidents move around. All I can say is Republican Presidents always seem to have tried to be an inconvenience to the people while Democrat Presidents act like monarchs looking down on the common people.
    Straight of the "conservative talking points play book".

    First, it did not cost 100 million because we do not know how much it will cost. Even the original source said:

    Obama’s trip could cost the federal government $60 million to $100 million based on the costs of similar African trips in recent years, according to one person familiar with the journey, who was not authorized to speak for attribution.
    Document: Major resources needed for Obama Africa trip - The Washington Post

    President Clinton's trip cost more than 42 million back in 1998 and that was without secret service costs in a pre-9/11 world.

    And secondly, all presidents cause huge inconveniences, when President Bush visited the area in Europe where I live, he had to land on Maastricht Aachen airport and all the freeways in the area were closed down and during the visit loads of roads on which the president would travel along large parts of the provincial roads where closed down on the side the president would be traveling along and if the president was actually due to drive on that road the entire road on both sides would be closed off.

    And that is fine, I have and had no problem with it at all. A visit of the president will cause inconveniences for the people in the area where he will visit. But because it is an honor for him to visit that is not a problem. His security needs alone dictate closures of roads and other inconveniences and that is fine, that is how presidential visits work.

    All presidential visits cause inconveniences. That is how it is.

    Not all of them and not every President with a big D after his name has an entire airport closed down while he gets a haircut on Air Force One while it's sitting on the tarmac of one of the busiest airports in the world.

    You mean the BS story about Bill Clinton causing huge delays at the LA airport?

    1. the entire airport was never closed from what I have read
    2. it caused little or no delays and thus had no impact on the day to day workings of that airport\

    Kessler has long specialized in digging beyond the conventional wisdom, such as when he earned a “laurel” from the Columbia Journalism Review* for obtaining Federal Aviation Administration records that showed that then President Bill Clinton had not delayed any scheduled flights when he had a controversial haircut on an airport tarmac
    About the Fact Checker - The Washington Post

    According to Federal Aviation Administration records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, the May 18 haircut caused no significant delays of regularly scheduled passenger flights -- no circling planes, no traffic jams on the runways.

    Commuter airlines that fly routes reportedly affected by the president's haircut confirmed they have no record of delays that day.

    The FAA records, generated by the regional Air Route Traffic Control Center, show that an unscheduled air taxi flight had the only delay attributed to the closure of two runways for an hour in anticipation of Air Force One's departure. The air taxi took off 17 minutes after leaving the gate -- two minutes late, by FAA accounting.

    "If you understand the air traffic system, you'd find that statement [that planes were circling] ludicrous," said Fred O'Donnell, an FAA spokesman at the agency's regional office, which responded to New York Newsday's May 21 request under the Freedom of Information law.

    Sorry Peter deater, I was there and you weren't.

    I was one of those along with a few hundred others in cars who had places to go, people to see or just wanted get home and were on Pershing Dr. who sat there for over a hour because the road was closed down. I get out of my car and walk up to an LAPD officer and ask "what gives" Officer says I don't know what the hang up is, the President was suppose to have taken off 15 minutes ago. Can't open the road until Air Force One has taken off ?

    If you ever been on Pershing Dr. you would see why the road is closed when certain aircraft are taking off. You probably could take down an aircraft with a sling shot.

    When I do get home I turn on the local news. I find out it was all about a hair cut. The seven local TV news stations were also there and covered and interviewed many of the pissed off passengers who flights were either delayed from taking off, landing or diverted to Ontario Airport.

    The FAA considers a 15 minute or one hour delay not to be a significant delay. Don't you fly ?

    The FAA is part of the federal government. It's like today with the Obama administration, when they report that the unemployment rate is just above 7% and the GDP is 1.5 % they tell you that "that's good" and your suppose to believe them that it;s good or they call you a racist.

    There are three runways at LAX, two south runways and one north runway. The shorter north runway was never affected by Air Force One even if it was approaching LAX, landing, or was still on the tarmac or taking off. The two south runways that Air Force One uses were affected.

    Air Force One is also kept on the tarmac near the old Imperial terminal a half mile across from the passenger terminals of today.
    Have you ever flown in to Lax or been at LAX and looked to the east ? You will see numerous aircraft stacked up approaching LAX. Many times at night you can see two dozen aircraft stacked up approaching the three different runways. You have planes landing and taking off. Three runways aren't enough.

    Here's what really happened during Clinton's haircut. Many of the planes that were suppose to be landing or taking off on one of the two south runways were being diverted to the north runway causing a dangerous situation of aircraft landing or taking off while there was still another aircraft further down the runway in front of them.

    Flights were delayed from taking off and some flights were diverted to Ontario Airport a big inconvenience for those passengers.
