Someone Better Be Fired For This

April 28 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama ordered a review of a publicity-photo shoot with one of the planes that serves as Air Force One that cost taxpayers $328,835 and caused a furor in New York City.
[Y]esterday’s low-altitude flight over New York Harbor….rattled windows in New York’s financial district and prompted some office workers to flee buildings in fear it was a terrorist attack.
The flight by the VC-25, a modified Boeing Co. 747, and two F-16 fighter jets cost $328,835, Air Force spokeswoman Vicki Stein said.

Over $300,000 to “update” the stock photos of Obama’s plane? Exposure for millions in civil damages to people injured in the panic?

Someone better be fired for this.

  2. Sean Hannity made a funny comment the other night when he said, “they could have photoshopped it for free.”

    This is the kind of stuff that makes Obama’s $100 million pledge look so ridiculous. You could probably trim $100 billion if you took a hatchet to the federal government instead of Obama’s beloved scalpel.
