Obama’s “Mission Accomplished” Moment ?

Official White House $357,000 Screensaver of New Jersey.

Michelle Malkin has the same concerns I do…..

Caldera’s disappearance under the Obama bus does not and should not end questions about the origin of the p.r. photo-op mission’s request, who participated, how it went down, and where protocol failed. And remember: Someone was planning a second flyover photo-op in Washington, D.C.

Hmmm, think the WH is peeing down our backs and telling us it’s raining? You betcha’ !

And another PBO appointee bites the dust.

So if this was a GREAT photo shot was Louis Caldera going to get all the credit????? of course not..then why did he take all the heat from a transparent dictator?

Someone needs to advance Louis Caldera on a tell-all book deal to get the real truth since this “transparency” will never be reported.

Not Your Sweetie also uncovered Obama’s “WMD” moment from the New York Daily News:

“Sasha and Malia aren’t here tonight because they’re grounded,” Obama said. “You can’t just take Air Force One on a joy ride to Manhattan. I don’t care whose kids you are.”

Hey, Mr. Obama, ha-ha-not. I found that joke very unfunny because I think your daughters shouldn’t be used to cover your ass. A WH staffer “conveniently” lost his job, thousands of New Yorkers crapped their pants. Ha-Ha? My old pals and dysfunctional family on the looney left shudder at the thought Air Force One and WMD’s-under-the-desk could be compared, since no one’s died during the PBO schtick? Really!? Last I checked, Code Pink is still on your lawn, and I don’t think they’re picking up after BO, Jr ?

NRO’s Mark Hemingway gives us the answer:

This reader writes, “I am a graphic designer in Southern California. I spent ten minutes throwing this together this morning, which at my rates equals about 15 dollars. However, I will settle for the thanks of a grateful nation.”

and this gem, a missed campaign opportunity?

Hot Air brings us up-to-date on the sheer stupidity, cost and dumbasses behind the “training mission”, also noting:

The cost of this debacle, by the way? Just shy of $329,000. Think of it as a stimulus: The amount of booze, smokes, and anti-anxiety meds alone that New Yorkers must have consumed in the aftermath of this mass panic attack was probably worth $10-20 mil to the city.

There is no cure for “stupid” ! Photoshop the damn “beefcake” photo-op plane over NYC next time!?

Let’s start with Senator Chuck Schumer (Dumbass-NY) for blaming the FAA for flying the Air Force One backup plane with a fighter plane trailing it over NYC today at a very low altitude making many New Yorkers crap their pants.

Ooops….

The Federal Aviation Administration and the Air Force say the flight was a government photo opportunity and training mission involving a presidential plane.

The White House staffer who organized the photo session apologized, but not before locals and an influential senator raised their voices.

Worried workers from several office buildings poured out onto the streets before they learned that the flights were harmless.

John Leitner, a floor trader at the New York Mercantile Exchange Building, said about 1,000 people “went into a total panic” and ran out of the building around 10 a.m. after seeing the planes whiz by their building, near the World Trade Center site.

“Apparently, nobody in the building was informed that this was going to happen,” he said. “Everyone panicked, as you can certainly understand.”

Then Press Secretary Robert Gibbs fumbles the ball too, per ABC News:

At a White House press briefing Monday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dodged questions about the flyover, even referring the media to the White House (that he represents).

Gibbs said he had no other information about the flyover other than news reports he had seen. “I was working on other things,” Gibbs said. “You might be surprised to know I don’t know every movement of Air Force One or what happens to it.”

Everything’s hunky-dory then? Not so fast….

A White House official told ABC News that President Obama was “furious” to hear about the plane incident. Caldera was called into a meeting with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina.

“It didn’t sound like a fun meeting,” the White House official said.

Although the shoot was authorized, the normal system of public notification broke down, multiple officials said.

The DOD would not answer specific questions about the promotional flight.

Bloomberg said he was so furious he wasn’t told about the photo op, that before he talked further to his own staff and agencies about the lack of notice to him, he wants “to calm down.”

“Poor judgment would have been a nice way to put it,” Bloomberg said of the government flyover.

You don’t want to make Mayor Bloomberg mad. /shudder

And the White House apologizes.

A lowly staffer takes the fall 😦
