Some questions on the AF One overfly

Some questions on the AF One overfly:

  • Why would anyone want suddenly photos or video of Air Force One circling the Statue of Liberty? 

The obvious answer that leaps to mind is a political/promotional effort, surrounding the televised special Mr. Obama has asked for time to air, in marking his first 100 days.

If this is true. I bet that footage never gets used.

  • Since the New York City area is Democrat-dominated, I can't help but wonder, "How many New York liberals got caught up in those events of yesterday?"

I can't help but think that they were feeling pretty good about themselves... and confident enough in America's security that they voted for Barrack Obama... someone who clearly doesn't have much use for the military solution... or the military itself for that matter.  I can't help but wonder how many were having second thoughts, yesterday as they ran from those planes, in response to their survival instincts?  I wonder what Obama's approval ratings would be now?

Whatever else might be said about this event, it has revealed to us once again the degree to which 9/11 is still on the minds of Americans, and the degree to which there is a disconnect on those matters between the American people and the White House. Those people who were running from those planes, openly sobbing by some reports, people who were desperately trying to get out of high rise buildings so as not to become victims, still have those events are still very much in their minds on a level that the current occupants of the White House cannot possibly understand, much less claim.  

I don't think it overstepping to suggest that lack of understanding will cost the Democrats dearly in the next couple of elections, even assuming that in that time frame, we don't come under actual attack again, as we did on 9/11.
