The Photo-Op From Hell

Much blog chatter about the panic caused by the President’s plane in NYC yesterday.

Doug Powers, on Malkin’s site: “Look for Obama’s people to claim it was a selfless gesture on the part of the president to take New Yorkers minds off the swine flu.”

Charles Johnson at LGF, on President Obama’s apology: “He’s getting very good at apologizing. But the other question that needs answering is: at a time of great financial crisis, combined with the largest federal budget in history, why is money being wasted on unnecessary extravagances like this?”
