Orson Wells eat your heart out !!
Seventeen skyscrapers were evacuated after this blunder yesterday including the ten-story where a co-worker of mine’s wife is employed. Terror must have led to relief which later led to anger which then led to the realization that maybe this Obama’s test scores in school are more indicative of his intelligence than his silver tongue. Oh well. If our great country weren’t in play…it might be hilarious.
Here is how the Kansas City Star reported on it:
“Besides costing businesses millions of dollars in lost productivity, the flyover exposed President Obama's staff to deserved ridicule for approving the mission.
For example, callers flooded the lines of conservative talk-shows in Kansas City on Monday. Some claimed this incident showed how disconnected from reality President Obama already has become about Americans' concerns over terrorism.
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg was among the top local officials angered because he was not told about the training exercise and photo-op. (Ut was a chance to take new pictures of the president's plane as it flew by the Statue of Liberty.)
The White House later Monday issued an apology. Obama reportedly was angered by the incident.”
The first 100 days extravaganza is in panting mode for the media…as they prepare to celebrate their new president and their accomplishments in getting him elected. Matt Drudge calls it the ‘Best President Ever Campaign.’
Those not celebrating are those concerned about the economic vitality and security of our nation.
In the meantime, at least let’s criticize the guy for burning a thousand gallons of fossil fuel – after his criticism of the automakers flying to Washington. Oh Al Gore, where are you when we need you?
