It's 10 a.m. Do you know where your Air Force One is?

When asked by reporters about the startling fly-over of New York City by a plane that serves as Air Force One, glib Robert Gibbs, President Obama's spokesman, said errr, I, I, uhh, I, hmmm and huh.

“I was working on other things," he finally said. "You might be surprised to know that I don’t know every movement of Air Force One."

Yes, well someone did at the White House. It was Louis E. Caldera, director of the White House Military Office and former secretary of the army in the Clinton administration. So, you can't blame the Pentagon or the Air Force. Now, we are supposed to buy the act that Caldera was working entirely on his own, as if he reported to no one in the White House, such as the acting communications director. After the furor dies down, Caldera undoubtedly will be gone. And if the media have their way, so will any remembrance of this major gaffe.

Are you sure George didn't suit and fly the Big Boy over New York?

George? As in George Bush? I get it, GWB is stupid enough to fly air force one, over New York in a similar path as the 9-11 terrorist. So you obviously think that President Barrack Hussein Obama is more intelligent than ex President Bush. You know what, I agree, President Obama is smarter than President Bush! That from a active Republican. As a matter of fact I am sure that BHO is smarter than GWB.

BHO closes Gitmo, cuts funding to our military, does nothing when North Korea launches a missile that could strike our territory, engages political dictators with affection, goes overseas and derides the American people, and fly’s his own presidential plane over New York on a similar flight pattern to the 9-11 terrorist; he does these things and has a press conference where none of these things are questioned! Clearly BHO is the genius. I believe the question that we must answer is who is the terrorist? Who is the fool?
