Obama’s egotistical stunt costs $329,000…
“In a memo obtained by CBS 2 HD, the Federal Aviation Administration’s James Johnston said the agency was aware of “the possibility of public concern regarding DOD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes” in an around New York City. But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor’s office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.”
A photo op! That’s what the White House called the Air Force One mission over New York City that terrified residents who not so long ago witnessed, first-hand, the most violent attacks ever perpetrated on American soil. I guess the Obama administration didn’t think of that! Apparently, this administration considers that ancient history, a forgotten time before we were so blessed to have the Chicago shyster occupying the White House.
The “man-made disaster” (aka terrorist attack if you’re not part of Obama’s inner circle) on 9/11/2001 might be forgotten by the far-left and the Democratic Party leaders, but it still burns in the memory of New Yorkers. While the administration snapped photos to use to promote the President and his plan to disassemble America, innocent civilians ran for cover, panicked in fear of another plane slamming into a building full of people. I guess Obama and his hirelings thought these people feel safe after his “Apologizing for America Tour,” or maybe he thought they’d forgotten about the day ~3,000 Americans were burned and buried in the ruins of the World Trade Center.
I haven’t seen any official explanation of where these photos would be used or what they would promote, so I’m inclined to believe such an explanation wouldn’t serve the administration well if it were made public. The “most transparent administration in history” didn’t see any need to inform the public of the stunt. Of course, they’d have been happy to plaster news of the mission everywhere in public view if it served some worthwhile purpose. Therefore, I must assume they were to be used in the never-ending campaign of the Obamessiah. But of course, he didn’t know anything about it. Right!
So, how much did this little stunt cost the taxpayers? How about $328,835! That’s right, you, me and every other American taxpayer helped foot the $329K bill that served no purpose but to promote this narcissistic media darling who continues to keep the MSM and other left-wing organizations drooling on themselves in admiration as he pushes us forward, straight into the jaws of Socialism.
What was that we heard last week? Wasn’t he in front of the cameras telling his underlings to cut $100,000,000 from their budgets? What’s good for the goose…oh, never mind. I guess they weren’t supposed to look in the “egocentric self-promotion of the Obamessiah” section of the budget for costs to cut. Of course not!
That part of the budget is designed to prop up his poll numbers as he hammers away at the very foundation of our country! That can’t be touched or the American people might just wake up, see through the shroud of smoke spread by the MSM, and notice this administration making off with the building blocks of our society that made the US the greatest, strongest country in the world.
$328,835. Remember that the next time you hear this President tell someone it’s time to pay his fair share. Remember that the next time Obama says he’s for fiscal responsibility. Remember that the next time he says he understands your problems. Remember that when he says he wants to cut spending.
$328,835 that you and I will pay to promote this administration.
