Flyover Fallout: Obama Orders Review Of His Own Incompetence

After weakly pretending he had no knowledge of Monday's terrifying flyover of lower Manhattan, the grossly incompetent Barack Obama will now compound the error by wasting more taxpayer money on a "review" of this man-caused disaster.
President Barack Obama has ordered an internal review to determine how the decision was made to send of one of his official airplanes on a low-flying photo op past the New York City skyline.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that deputy chief of staff Jim Messina will lead the review. Gibbs said the point is to determine "why that decision was made and to ensure that it never happens again."
So after wasting an untold sum of money on this vanity photo-op we're now going to see some whitewash review likely claiming Obama had no knowledge of anything.

Memo to Louis Caldera: Update your resume.

First order of business from this fiasco: When will we see an accounting of who was on board during this flyover? Were there any compaign contributors getting a joyride?

C'mon, Mr. Transparency, the public wants to know.

Yes! And then we could add flying unicorns and fiscal responsibility to go along with the planes!

I think the best way to handle the "photo-op" would've been through Photoshop. Never mind the frazzled nerves - how about a $300K cost savings!

The RIGHT way to handle it would have involved a new story the night before, that went something like this:

"New Yorkers are in for a special treat tomorrow, as Air Force One makes a flyby to salute the city and its veterans. People are invited to take their cameras to the street for this unique photo opportunity, as the President's Boeing 747, accompanied by an F-16, dip their wings to the Statue of Liberty and then fly past the city."

Then even if the plane was loaded full of campaign contributors, hell he could sell tickets to Communist Party USA and the national leadership of ACORN, it would be a sign of public relations genius.

Have you ever seen such ridiculous press conferences?" Mr President what was your most enchanting moment in your first 100 days?"

I thought they'd just blame it on Bush's dog.

When he does poop on the carpet, I expect an internal review to find out how it was allowed to happen, a briefing from the white house press secretary, and plenty of photos.
