The “Top Gun” low-flying buzzing the tower stunt perpetrated by the Obama White House is just another example of how out of touch this administration and President Obama are with the real people of this country.
Had the Bush White House pulled off a stunt like this we would be hearing from a score of psychologists, psychiatrists, crisis counselors, etc… about the trauma that was re-visited on the poor people of New York City. The insensitivity of the administration for callously forcing people to re-live one of the most horrifying days in modern U.S. history. And you know what… they would have been correct.
I wonder if the intellectual elites will show up to critique and comment on the Obama White House? Some how I doubt it. I am sure it will be swept under the rug. Brushed off and explained that the President was not aware that the photo was being taken, or that it had been scheduled. Kind of like the bonuses being paid out to bank executives, or the tax problems with so many of his cabinet appointments, or Bill Ayers, or Reverend Wright, or… the list is too long. But somehow the excuse is always the same.
There is a rumor that the next photo opportunity that the President won’t know about is a Vanity Fair spread of a beach volley ball game: Obama and Biden vs. Geitner and Gibbs.
Tom Cruise eat your heart out.
New York Post – A jumbo jet being chased by a F-16 fighter jets buzzed Lower Manhattan this morning, panicking New Yorkers, many of whom were forced to evacuate their office buildings.
It was not a terrorist attack, however, but a photo opportunity for Air Force One, sources told the Post.
