Air Force One is considered ESSENTIAL.
What’s happened is that Obama has abused his use of it like no other before him.
Two different issues. Is Air Force One essential? And has Obama grossly abused its use?
Question: If AF1 were to be mothballed, would B. Hussein Obama then sit in his Oval Office chair, as Clint Eastwood suggested, or would B. Hussein instead spend more of his free time playing Golf?
Algore would have to admit that “The Carbon Footprint” of AF1 has caused significant , and irreparable harm to the utopian hope that His Arrogantness Obama will ever be able to keep his promise to stop the rising of Global Ocean Level.
The only thing that is essential about AF1 is that it justifies Biden getting AF2 and Michelle getting AF3.
If Biden and Michelle are content with their Air Force Corporate Jets, that B. Hussein can spend more time Golfing.
BTW, just who is more uppity that the Obamas?
If AF1 is “essential,” then Obastard won’t have any trouble taking his hat in his hand, and asking Congress to specifically approve any use of it. Otherwise it’s just another perk of the job.
