Which Planet Have They Fallen Off?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

The whole story with the photo op in the sky above the lower Manhattan does not survive any sanity test. "Insensitive", "stupid", you call it...

And this is in the 21st century, and this is when we are in recession.

Well, Washington is not in recession. Looks like this is the only place which is experiencing tremendous growth.

Guys, let us offer them a bit of sanity. There is such thing as Photoshop. And if you are so freaggin lost for normality, call us, agents, and we will show you how to do it.

What Planet have they fallen off?

Hi there,

I'm with you on this one! To make matters even worse than scaring New Yorkers to death yesterday, I heard earlier that like it's $40,000 a hour to fly AF1, so who's the idiot who could authorize that kind of an expense for a photo-op?

Trey - terrific explanation. Maybe a virus. Everything else does not make any sense. A severe form of governmental influenza. Looks it is highly contagious

Tony & Darcy - this sure makes no sense. A case of power without brains

They've fallen off the Planet Obama. 

It is a place where the end justifies the means. 

It is a place where the public will learn to listen to what I say and not notice what we do. 

It is a place where we have the power and are consolidating it through personnel appointments of political idealogues who will blindly say what supports our actions with no interest in fact or logic or simple arithematic.

When that "photo op" didn't result in the firing of the pol who orchestrated it, we were doomed.  Flying a 747 over New York City should result in a 747 being shot out of the air over the river, not some "photo-op".

Careful Lenn, you might get branded an enemy of the state and me along with you for agreeing.

Jon, I understand what everyone else is saying, but if we're going to be afraid every time we see a low flying plane overhead then we have lost and Osama has won. Let's never forget, we can never forget, but lets stand together and get to the business of rebuilding our country and our economy rather than hiding in fear.

John - and this came right after using over 9000 gallons of jet fuel to give an earth day speech in Iowa. Of course if you are a CEO in a private jet, you are evil.

Jon~ At a cost of 328,000 dollars to scare the pants off of a whole bunch of New Yorkers I din't se how this can end without someone being fired.

It turned out to be a pretty good photo op for my company. One of our new condo developments 77 Hudson (with url: 77Hudson.com visible) made the front page of newspapers across the country.

Jon, we all agree.  But to correct a couple of your commentors, this fly over was not just a photo op, but also a training mission.  The pilots of Air Force One regularly fly around to train.  Wasted money?  Not if it keeps the pilots on their toes.  In addition, the president has nothing to do with the operation of those planes.

Hi Jon,

Interesting comments.  Here is my Canadian point of view.  I was GOBSMACKED.  Training missions in a metropolitan city?  Especially NYC.  I think the fear will never go away, especially for those who work in the downtown skyscrapers and those who witnessed 911.

Stupid and senseless IMHO.  Not to mention the outlandish expense.

Hugh - Scaring the pants off a bunch of NYers makes this fly-by worth it.  I wish it was all Wall Streeters.

Mitchell - You were handed a lemon, but rather than be bitter, you added vodka and had a party.  Congrats on the 77 Hudson promotion!!

Those Blaming Obama - Need I quote Mark Twain?

Tchaka - he-he. What do you have against your democratic-minded fellow New Yorkers? Why are you happy they are running for life (that's what they felt)?
