If Obama was looking for one more act of cluelessness to close out his “100 Day War Against America”, he has succeeded:
(Video H/T: The Sundries Shack“)
Let me get this straight….Today, the Obama administration:
Spent MILLIONS of our dollars by arranging for an Air Force One plane and F-16 Fighter jets to buzz through New York City for a PHOTO OP…all while in the midst of (Obama’s words) “The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression”.
Basically killed about 3 trees with the greenhouse gasses emitted from the 747 and F-16 jet jaunt to New York to buzz the weary citizens of New York City….all this from the “renewable energy” guy who uses your tax payer dollars to kill trees for a photo op.
Managed to terrorize thousands of New York City business people and residents who scrambled, evacuated, screamed and, likely, worse to escape what they saw as another terrorist attack on New York City.
Ignored common and useful technology like Photo Shop that could have achieved exactly the same photowithout wasting money, killing trees, and terrorizing New Yorkers. Is that not a metaphor for exactly how our banks, energy and healthcare will now be run with King Obama at the helm? — Low tech, high cost, and screw the citizens with no apparent advantage except to Obama?
(sarc on) Did the Obama administration just think the citizens of New York City were going to look up, see the 747 and the F-16’s buzzing overhead and think, “It’s OK …just another Obama photo op”? Well, OK, maybe after four years, not 100 days, of constant Obamanarcissism, that could be the reaction, but today…not so much.
You know this almost reaches a level of torture doesn’t it? I mean the sheer breathlessness, “fight or flight sensations”, and world turned upside down experience of thousands of New York’s citizens today is dang near like water boardin’, right?
This mistake “act of torture” by Obama isn’t going to help our standing in the world. Therefore, I am releasing photos of the event for all of the world to see. (sarc off)
What are others saying?
Heads have got to roll on this one. There is absolutely no good excuse for scaring the bejeezus out of an entire city and bringing Manhattan to a grinding halt just to get a pretty picture. We have computer software that does simply amazing things with photographs these days.
I didn’t hear it this morning but I used to work in lower Manhattan and can assure you that workers these days are highly attuned to unusual air traffic in the area. Not a day has passed in seven-plus years, I think, that an airplane has flown low enough overhead that I could hear it, even just barely, and I didn’t look up. Just watching the video, I could feel the blood drain from my face.
Hmmm…I guess Obama wanted to remind us all that terrorism is a real and present danger.
How thoughtful. George Bush didn’t have the balls to panic New Yorkers just to remind them of 9/11.
Like Christopher Buckley, I’m really starting to admire the cut of this man’s jib!

“Goose, it’s time to buzz Lady Liberty…”
