Obama: I am Idiot No. 1 !
Obama airplane No. One made a panic in N.Y.
The aircraft rattled windows in New York’s financial district and prompted some office workers to flee buildings in fear it was a repeat of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Paul Browne, deputy New York City police commissioner, said April 27 that the department was told by the FAA not to inform the public about what it thought would be a higher flyover by the aircraft. Air Force officials began to provide basic information Tuesday about the cost of the flights, but did not disclose how long the public has paid for similar photo op flights.
How much this idiotic pleasure costed tax payers this time?
The estimated cost for all three aircraft was $328,835, Air Force spokeswoman Vicki Stein said in an e-mailed response to inquiries. The political cost to the Obama White House will be harder to calculate.
Dumb and Dumber?
