Obama Strafes New York, Terrorizes Citizens

The Obama White House needed some publicity photos of Air Force One so they decided to send the plane out on a secret mission. That mission was to fly low around New York with a fighter jet in pursuit and get some nice Kodak moments near the Statue of Liberty. Some police agencies were notified of the stunt but everyone was sworn to secrecy under threat from the feds. Unsuspecting New Yorkers saw the events unfold and had flashbacks of 9/11. Anxieties ran deep as buildings were evacuated of people who thought they were under attack once again.

This whole episode is wrong on many levels. We will get to the terror inflicted by Obama in a minute. Let’s look at a few other issues first.

How much money did it cost to pull off this little stunt? US aircraft were flying around for no good reason and costing tens of thousands of dollars per hour. The taxpayer footed the bill for this publicity stunt and that is unacceptable. The Obama people are not good stewards of our money. They are supposed to be tech savvy though. Do they expect us to believe that they have never heard of Photo Shop? All they had to do was get a few pictures of Air Force One and Photo Shop it to look any way they wanted. That would have cost a heck of a lot less and it would have prevented a terrorist attack on New York. They could have gone from Photo Op to Photo Shop and saved a major headache. Total cost of the stunt is reported to be $328,000 and they could buy a lot of copies of Photo Shop for that kind of money.

How about the carbon footprint that this episode left behind? Obama wants us all to drive wind up cars, keep our tires inflated, and keep our thermostats down so that we can conserve and get off the nasty oil those Arabs sell us. His little stunt burned a whole lot of fuel (probably more than 50 cars will use in a year) and for no good purpose. Photo Shop could have saved all that fuel and the associated carbon footprint.

Normally I could care less about the carbon issue or burning fuel but our tax dollars pay for the fuel and Obama is the one telling people they have to conserve. He is kind of like Al Gore. Conserve while I use all I want.

The FAA warned that such a flight would cause panic but the government forced New York officials to keep the photo op secret and there were threats of federal sanctions if the story leaked out. This has to be one of the more disturbing issues. If they had just been boneheaded and neglected to think of the anxiety the flight would cause we could just say they were incompetent but they were warned by the adults that this could cause a real problem and they still did it. What harm could come from telling people that planes would be flying low for an exercise?

Obama claims to be furious about this. It is his plane and it was his White House that did this so he is responsible for it because it happened under his watch and it happened right under his nose. It is not like I am blaming him for things people did in an Iraqi prison that is thousands of miles away; he is right where the decisions were made. Furious or not, this is all on him.

The people of New York were terrorized by the Obama Administration. It is probably a good thing he renamed it from the War on Terror or he might be guilty of terrorism.

The people of New York are not happy because they were not warned about the event. New York City went overwhelmingly blue in the presidential election but I wonder how they feel about their messiah now considering what he did to them.

Obama repays their support by strafing their city and terrorizing them.

He has been in office 100 days and made 100 mistakes (at least). Was this act of terror one of them?

Maybe that is why his terrorist buddies admire him.

    Your facts are wrong. The White House doesn’t operate Air Force One. The White House is a client of Air Force One… here’s from Murdoch’s NY Daily News, not a liberal source by any means:

    How dumb do you think we are?

    The White House Military office does operate the AF1, and this idea was approved by Louis Caldera, a former Cal. Assemblyman, a political appointee of the great Barama.
    Prior to Barama’s reign, this was staffed by the military, because they know how to do this right, and this office is not a “sandbox” for political dilettantes. It is a complex office that preps all the president’s trips and the ancillary details that are attached to those duties, and this office does not need a brain- dead body staffing it.
    Yes, the cost was 328,835 dollars, and the carbon footprint was Sasquatch sized, 53 tons for the three hour tour- a three hour tour.
    Gilligan couldn’t have been more brain dead- a lizard with a pre- cambrian brainstem would have known this was a bad idea, but Barama doesn’t mind spending our money on frivolous things, or apparently appointing incompetent people who can screw up whatever they touch.
    Doug, after reading your link, and knowing the facts, I now know how dumb you are. Concentrate on breathing- one thing at a time.
