This is exactly how it should have been all along; especially for this historic First Family. It is great to know that the First Lady is doing so much good for military families as she represents this great nation with so much class and dignity.

God Bless the First Family and the United States of America!

Shouldn't everyone be getting the highest level of scrutiny from air traffic controllers?

Oh, Yes, the Tillman family thinks the Obama's are just class acts for appointing Gen. McChrystal to Michelle's Military Families Commission after he actively hid their son's death by "friendly fire".

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/...

Report: Tillman's Mother Wants McChrystal Off Military Families Commission

"The mother of a well-known Army Ranger killed in the war in Afghanistan says retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal was involved in the cover-up of her son's death and should be fired from his new post on a White House commission for military families.

Mary Tillman, whose son Pat Tillman was infamously killed by friendly fire in 2004, says McChrystal's appointment as a co-chairman of first lady Michelle Obama's "Joining Forces" campaign is an embarrassment to president Barack Obama and a slap in the face to military families. Tillman said the former general, who was relieved of command in Afghanistan last year, played a direct role in the military's attempt to recast Pat Tillman's death as the result of enemy fire and use the story for political reasons."

I'll bet this makes Meechelle so PROUD of her husband! They care NOTHING for this country or it's military- what incredible hypocrites.

Even for a baiter you're a moron, fake black fake marine. But you give GREAT platform! LOL!

A fist bump is how you judge class?

LOL…

Your blind hatred for the Black First Family has really pushed you unstable and irrational emotions to the edge. I laugh at the pain and suffering that unpatriotic right-wing idiots like you have had to deal with since Election Night 2008 when they call the Presidency for Barack Obama. You’re sick alright, but it’s due to that mental disorder of being a tea-bagging right-winger; and not from any of the facts that I point out on here.

New flight rules from the FAA should make it mandatory to break out a Jumbo Jet when flying the First Lady around. Especially so if Oprah's scheduled to be on board.

I thought that the pure euphoria that I had on Election Night 2008 would have worn off by now… IT HASN’T!!!

And I’m sure that “YOU” didn’t think that he was going to get a first term; so you aren’t the best person to go to when it come to prognostication… but maybe you have put all you trust in Gingrich or Bachmann, or Trump. Surely you don’t think that they have a chance in Hell of beating President Obama next year. but hey, there’s always Palin… LOL.

You better hope that any flight you go on is no where close to any flight VP Bite Me or Michelle is on.In fact if they are on any plane in U.S. air space you stay on the ground because you can bet almost every ATC controller-HEY WAKE UP OVER THERE!-will be paying exclusive attention to their aircraft and your plane will be fending for itself.

Devastation: GOP Picks Up 680 State Leg. Seats -- November 4, 2010
http://hotlineoncall.nationaljournal.com/arch...

While the Republican gains in the House and Senate are grabbing the most headlines, the most significant results on Tuesday came in state legislatures where Republicans wiped the floor with Democrats.

Republicans picked up 680 seats in state legislatures, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures -- the most in the modern era. To put that number in perspective: In the 1994 GOP wave, Republicans picked up 472 seats. The previous record was in the post-Watergate election of 1974, when Democrats picked up 628 seats.

The GOP gained majorities in at least 14 state house chambers. They now have unified control -- meaning both chambers -- of 26 state legislatures.

That control is a particularly bad sign for Democrats as they go into the redistricting process. If the GOP is effective in gerrymandering districts in many of these states, it could eventually lead to the GOP actually expanding its majority in 2012.

WRONG! Have some more crow, commie shill.

Here are 20 ways the 2010 election made history:
http://blog.timesunion.com/nypotomac/twenty-r...

• It was the biggest gain for one party since voters repudiated the “Do-Nothing Republican Congress” in 1948 by giving Democrats a 75-seat pickup.

• It was the biggest setback for a president in a midterm election since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Democrats lost 72 seats in 1938.

• President Obama lost more seats in his first midterm election than any president since Warren G. Harding’s Republicans suffered a 77-seat setback in 1922.

• The Democrats’ four years in control of the House of Representatives was the shortest tenure for one party atop that chamber since the Republicans were voted out in 1954 after just two years in charge.

• House Democrats will have their smallest number of members since they had 188 after the 1946 election.

• There will be more Republican women in Congress than any other time in American history.

• Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mario Rubio of Florida, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Mike Lee of Utah became the first Tea Party loyalists elected to the U.S. Senate.

• Rand Paul of Kentucky will become the first person to serve in the Senate at the same time his father (Rep. Ron Paul of Texas) serves in the House.(There have been father-son combinations in the past — most recently Ted and Patrick Kennedy — but the father had always been the senator.)

• Susana Martinez of New Mexico is the first Latina ever elected a governor in American history.

• Martinez became the first woman elected governor in New Mexico history.

• Sen. Lisa Murkowski will be the first candidate in Alaska history to win a statewide race as a write-in candidate — if her election night lead holds up through the counting (and recounting) process.

• Murkowski would become the first person since Strom Thurmond in 1954 to be elected to the U.S. Senate as a write-in candidate.

• Former eBay CEO Meg Whitman spent more of her own money in a campaign for public office than any other person in American history (an estimated $150-plus million)— and lost.

• Congresswoman Mary Fallin became the first woman ever elected governor of Oklahoma.(She earlier made history as the state’s first female lieutenant governor.)

• Nikki Haley became the first Indian-American woman elected governor in U.S. history.

• Haley is the first minority politician ever elected governor of South Carolina.

• Maine and New Hampshire will become the first neighboring states to be represented by four women in the Senate (Maine Republicans Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, New Hampshire Democrat Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Kelly Ayotte).

• It was the first midterm election in history where the House changed hands without the Senate changing hands, too.

• Jerry Brown becomes the first American elected governor of the same state four decades apart (the ’70s and the ’10s).

• Rick Perry became the first governor in Texas history to win three four-year terms.

So the plane had to do a GO AROUND! A standard procedure for when a plane does not exit the runway as fast as was expected! It's a STANDARD PROCEDURE!!!

It is what happens when controllers try to keep the airplanes together for efficiency. 99.9% of the time the airplane exits, the next one is cleared to land. 1% of the time, the airplane does not exit with the required space so the plane is sent around.

BUT----Suddenly with the "Queen of FREAK" on board, she should not have to endure something which is standard in the industry. THEREFORE all air traffic should be cleared of the airspace, airlines industry all shut down so the "QUEEN OF FREAK" can be shuttled around as if she is the ONLY ONE ON THE PLANET that matters!

I can't wait till this FREAK show is done and they are out of the office!
