Two posts today. Here is a bonus one. I could not resist. Obama and his obsession with planes. Six times he mentions planes yesterday at his presser.
Six separate mentions during today’s presser, according to Jim Geraghty. So unfair and heavy-handed is this line of attack that even lefty Greg Sargent felt obliged to gently debunk it, noting that eliminating the tax break for corporate jets would net just $3 billion over 10 years. (Bonus fun fact: The tax break for jets was introduced in Obama’s own stimulus.)More at Hot Air
He loves his Airforce One. Is there a day he is not gallivanting about in it? It looks like flying is for thee and not for me. Let us take a spin in the way back machine for an earlier post of mine! Enjoy!
Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci. Below is the Gulfstream G3 Dog Crate for Bo
Now his Presser obsession with the plane thingy:
During his press conference yesterday, the president presented his newest straw man: the tax-escaping corporate jet owner. The tax-escaping corporate jet owner is such a bad person that President Obama mentioned him six times during his press conference. He portrayed these people as “millionaires and billionaires” whose big tax breaks stand in the way of Washington adequately funding college scholarships and child safety programs.
