You’ve just got to wonder how stupid a Democrat is willing to look in public.

They’re not called corporate jets for nothing. Creating a stigma around these jets will destroy the industry.

So now we have a man in the White House who is happy to destroy profitable industries, while we’re in the middle of a recession.

This is jaw dropping stupid, even for a Democrat.

How many private jets flew into DC for Obama’s inauguration?

The dems can move 2 million people into DC in 2 days, but can’t move 100,000 people out of New Orleans in 4 days?

Corporate jets have become one of the Left's favored symbols of "excess" for use as a tool of class envy.

Sadly, many FReepers jump right on the class envy bandwagon every time they run it by.

According to Corporate Angel Network, they have operated 25,000 flights using donated corporate jet flight time since 1981 to provide free transportation to cancer patients. Way to go, Democrats.

President Doom & Gloom must be furious. How dare anybody except the Inner Circle own a jet.

Doesn't Pelousi have a USAF 737(?) at her disposal every weekend?

If so, that has to cost tens of thousands of $ per flight hour.

Hey, long time no see.

Like your tag line. Was considering a gag for the White House Correspondents Dinner based on your it. Have an empty suit on a frame with a sign, “Take Your Picture With Obama (Media Only)”.

If I recall correctly, it’s a 767, one of the Presidential fleet. Bush used it a lot to save money, as it cost less than the 747-based AF1. He also used some of the smaller planes (Gulfstream?) for the same reasons.

I am a newlywed since 19 Jul 08 and one is cooking in the oven. I am over in Germany taking care of our wounded warriors. Me thinks I will be staying busy when the appeaser in chief gets done.
