Tuesday is “Hey Louis Caldera – Update Your Resume” Day

I had a friend once (also a computer type) who always said, “If you’re gonna screw up, make it BIG…spectacular…something people will tell stories about for years.”

Eventually, Louis Caldera, the White House Military Office director strives for the same level of idiocy. One would think (THINK – that means use your brains there buckos) that a stunt like this would cause panic, especially in NYC. Even better, there was to be another, over DC of all places.

Of course HE knew. The Won, you know. Like Joy,

I’m with those who maintain that this couldn’t have been a photo op, because no one would have gone to that expense and taken that political risk to save a few hours in P-Shop.

And then there is the matter of the F-16 that trailed it. I agree with Jammie-Wearing Fool: until I see a flight manifest that proves otherwise, I will believe that at least one member of the First Family was in that plane, and that it was a sightseeing trip. I believe Obama felt that it would be better to get forgiveness rather than permission.

It is so comforting to know our country is safe because the White House is filled with only the best and the brightest of America. According to Jim at GatewayPundit

White House officials knew that the flyover New York City would cause a panic but did it anyway. The White House officials also ordered the flyover be kept secret.

Inconceivable! Ego before the American People? Just days before the Celestial Celebration of the Harmonic Convergance?

Michelle remembers Obama’s glowing endorsement of Caldera upon his appointment:

President-elect Barack Obama announced today that Louis Caldera will serve as Director of the White House Military Office. Caldera brings a lifetime of military and public service to the Military Office, which coordinates all military support for Presidential operations.

“Louis has served his country with distinction in uniform and in government, and his pedigree is second-to-none. I know he’ll bring to the White House the same dedication and integrity that have earned him the highest praise in every post, from Secretary of the Army to university president,” said President-elect Obama.

Shouldn’t a man of such “dedication and integrity” know better? Having a “pedigree…second-to-none” would surely imply that the brain is connected and functioning and able to perform at least third grade math. Remember the “Transitive Property?” If A = B, and B=C, then A=C? How’s this for variable substitution?

A=Americans remember 9/11 every day
B=Planes near highrises cause anxiety
C=Obama has weakened America

You do the math. I’m sure al-Qaeda is chuckling into its hookah over the silly American President’s silly stunt. Silly, silly man. They’ll show him how to fly some planes into buildings. You just wait.

On a lighter note, Stacy is filleting David Brooks again (after all it is Tuesday), but stop by anyway and wish him and the Mrs. Other McCain (who is obviously a SAINT) a happy 20th anniversary!

UPDATE:
Toast.

    As it turns out, they knew it would cause panic and still went right ahead.

    Let’s put these people in charge of our health care!

    Obi’s Sister: “If A = B, and B=C, then A=C?”

    In Obama’s world A = B and B = O and O stands for what ever the hell I want to do because I am the O, the One, The Chosen

    “The White House aide who authorized the controversial Air Force One photo-op flight last week around the Statue of Liberty is out of a job. President Obama has accepted the resignation of Louis Caldera, the director of the White House Military Office, the Daily News learned Friday. “”White House aide Louis Caldera loses job over Manhattan flyover fiasco involving Air Force One”” http://pfx.me/lU
