Another Inaugural Record Broken
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, January 20, 2009

A line from President Obama's inaugural speech:
With old friends and former foes, we'll work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the specter of a warming planet.
A fact concerning President Obama's inaugural celebration:
According to an article in Bloomberg, as many as 600 private jets were expected to touch down in D.C. for the inauguration. The runway at Washington Dulles was closed Saturday to allow as many as 100 small planes to park. And the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said it expected a total of 500 small jets to land from Jan. 16 through Jan 21.

“That would set a record, topping the 300 the airport accommodated for President George W. Bush’s 2004 inaugural,” an Airports Authority says in the article.
Nothing particularly earth shaking or profound about that fact. Certainly nothing I blame Obama for - but I amused by the irony and hypocrisy inherent in the numbers. My guess is many of those who flew in on private jets will be on the global warming bandwagon hyping the need to for you to "sacrifice" to save the world within a few weeks and months.

Business as usual.

With old friends and former foes, we’ll work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat...
And we who oppose this inexperienced Clown™ should come forward when Iran gets a nuclear weapon and say, "This happened because we listened to a dimwit named Obama. End of argument."

I intend to post that on every liberal blog I can find. Because it will happen on the watch of The Clown™. And we should nail him for it.

Spectres (like Communism!) aren’t real.

Rollin’ back the spectre of global warming is a great idea, and celebratory burning of fossil fuels is a good start.
