Is Obama and his team too stupid to carry a GPS?

Can't he hire pilots who know how to read maps?

This is supposed to be a guy who is smart?

Wow, how irresposible of Obama! He flies the plane, right?? He plots the course, right?? Shame on hom for not doing a better job. This is what I'm voting for--a pilot and navigator--oops!! That's right--It's a vote for president! I think they are supposed to leave the "driving" to someone else so they can work on the nation's and world's problems--but hey maybe he's supposed to do it all!! LOL

This is too funny to even comment on. Good thing Leno's writers are on strike. They could milk this one for three weeks.

James,
Obama has nothing to fear from Leno. Dems get a single joke one night and the matter is closed. It would only be milked for weeks if he were a Republican.
Anyone else tired of the Craig toilet humor?

As a pilot, I can tell you the pilot knew where he was landing. Either Obama or someone on his staff really goofed this one! If they screwed this one, what would they do with Air Force One???

Sad to say most of the poopers commenting are problably registered voters. No wonder we got Bush for two terms.

Obama is not from Illinios. He is a "carpet bagger." He is here because Illinois offers oppertunity. Is her working for the people of Illinois, no he is always running. I wounder If he knowns anything about Illinois, or is His Illinois just Hyde Park and Sprinfield.

I bet I'd understand what you are talking about if you knew how to use the English language. You must be a product of the Chicago Public School system.

I cannot fathom why people are comparing the plane landing at the wrong airport with one of the passengers' ability to lead a country. Don't get me wrong, Obama is not seasoned enough to be president, but if it is this kind of incident you all use to determine who you vote for, well, then you get what you deserve.

People are actually stupid enough to blame Obama for an error caused by the pilots of the plane he was on?

I used to wonder how an idiot like Bush could get elected twice, but judging by the comments made by some people here, the mystery is solved.

Obviously a staffer gave the pilots the wrong airport....the pilots probably will not make a comment since their company would lose the charter contract. Tis politics to push off the blame I suppose. God help us if Obama is elected................

I want to know why he's running around in a private jet. I guess he's not running on any environmental platform. Can you imagine how much fuel was wasted "firing up" and going back to Cedar Rapids?

I still think Barack thinks Stony, Blue and Rock Island are part of the Phillipines. He can dance but he can't act!
