    This was for a photo op? What a narcissist Obama is.

    BUZZING LADY LIBERTY WITH AIR FORCE ONE

    Terrorize citizens.
    Disrupt business.
    Wasteful spending.

    Someone didn't have the sense to even notify the Mayor's office. Of course, there's the double standard in media coverage, but that goes without saying.

    Yep.

    The smarter thing for him to have done would be step forward and say "hey, it was my team and I that did it and I would like to offer a public apology for our failure to plan ahead." Even though it was really him, it was one of his guys and he needs to acknowledge that.

    But, as the chips fell, he and the media are happy letting his underling take the fall. Responsibility for one's actions...

    I work 3 blocks from the Goldman building and heard that plane twice yesterday morning. 3 blocks away and that sombitch STILL sounded like it was right outside our window. I could only imagine what it sounded like over there. There were mass evacuations over here, as well as lower Manhattan. Not cool at all.

    You mean Caldera-
    Calderon is the President of Mexico.

    There's something really strange about this story though. I don't think I'm convinced that this is 100% executive arrogance. I can't tell if it's another example of disorganization and incompetence or there's a cover story here.

    You've just admitted that Obama is a) a liar b) a coward who doesn't stand up for his own people and c) stupid.

    mass evacuations, so what would have happened if a group of people got trampled.

    Let me re-phrase that - it was more like people saying "I'm getting the f*ck outta here". The majority of them proceeded to the pier a block away to watch. Yeah, that makes sense. lol

    Where would you like them to go?
    The point is to get out of the high buildings to avoid being trapped.

    Also, alot of the videos I've seen have been taken from the Jersey side of the river.

    I doesnt matter who initated the whole ordeal or not, what matters is, Would YOU walk and to Walmart and start screaming bomb just to see what happens. I highly doubt it. Common sense is obvously absent in this move. Something the Government has been missing for quite some time and it only seems to get worse.

    It was the White House. There's no possible way Obama didn't know about it.

    How about AWAY from what could be a potential problem? Walking West on Montgomery Street would work.

    If I remember right, Montgomery runs N/S.
    And, I might be wrong, but that's a different part of town. The fear was in the financial district. Wasn't AF1 coming down the Hudson to Liberty Island?

    Also, what "potential problem" were they avoiding. They heard jets, got out the buildings... but then where do you go? Walk through the labyrinth of buildings, or just get clear of them.

    They wouldn't have any idea what building conceivably could be hit. They had no idea, they just responded.

    Get out of the buildings. Get off the top floors. Do not get trapped. Do not get incinerated or forced to jump from a window 800 feet above the ground. Get away from any possible falling debris. Stay together.

    EDIT:
    And like I mentioned, the video Fossten posted WAS filmed from the New Jersey side of the river. Goldman Sachs Tower is on the West coast of the Hudson, ACROSS from trade center. NYC LS8 must be well aware of that since he said he works near there.

    I don't understand why anyone be deflecting criticism from the administration responsible for such a recklessly insensitive stunt like this and shifting it on the publicI get goosebumps when I watch that video. That would be horrific to have seen.

    There's no labyrinth of buildings here in JC. It's not like downtown Manhattan at all. Montgomery Street goes from the water, inland. Not along the water. That's why I call it "West". It's just something people do. If you're on the Jersey side of the Hudson, you're West of it.

    Whatever, though. It still wasn't a very cool thing to do at that time of the week and that time of the day. Do that on a Sunday when nobody's around. Or just use PhotoShop and save all of us the money.
