White House Aides Demanded that F-22 be Removed at Photo-Op

by the Left Coast Rebel

Another shocking headline, right? This one coming to us from FP's The Cable, they are breaking an exclusive story exploring the details behind my title here. According to what I am reading, it is true, White House aides demanded to officials at Alaska's Elmendorf Air Force Base to remove the F-22 fighter plane in the hanger that was the backdrop to Obama's speech and photo-op. The administration wanted the F-22 to be removed because of Obama's hard-fought victory with the F-22 program cancellation.

Ain't it grand? Of malignant narcissism and photo-ops with jets that 'O' killed......

The Cable:

Stephen Lee, a public affairs officer at Elmendorf, confirmed to The Cable that the F-22 was parked in the hanger and then was replaced by an F-15 at the White House's behest.

The airmen there took offense to the Obama aides' demand, sources told The Cable, seeing it as a slight to the folks who are operating the F-22 proudly every day. They also expressed bewilderment that the White House staff would even care so much as to make an issue out of the fact that the F-22 was placed in the hanger with the president.

A White House official, commenting on background basis, told The Cable that yes, there were discussions about which plane or planes would be in the hanger, but that they were not meant as an insult to the pilots and other personnel who work on the F-22. The official couldn't elaborate on why the White House aides felt it necessary to get involved in the matter in the first place.

What a ridiculous story and an example of just how idiotic and asinine this administration is. A brothel of snot-nosed, wide-eyed bleeding heart pointy-heads straight out of academia that care more for image and photo-op than any institution or sacred American lexicon. This story points exactly to just that. I have a prediction. This will be a big story tomorrow in the free-press only.

  1. The entire military and all its weaponry are just props to this arrogant, self-centered man...

  2. I wonder how much it cost taxpayers to move those planes. Actually I wonder what the carbon footprint was to move those planes.

  3. @ Foutsc - Yup and it only goes downhill from that fact!

    @ BB - Thousands? Tens of thousands?

  4. With this anti-American a@@hole, anything is possible.

  5. It's all about HIM. Remove the F-22; cover the cross with IHS that was behind the podium at Georgetown; remove the Muslim women from behind him at the rally in Detroit...it's all about HIM.

  6. I would like to say I'm shocked by such grandiose behavior; but it seems to be the status quo with our newly crowned POTUS. Nothing surprises me anymore, although I am frequently disapointed.


  8. This sort of thing makes you look like a bunch of infantile whiners.

    Where were you when George Bush used an entire aircraft carrier as his backdrop, keeping it at sea for an extra day and turning it around so people couldn't see that it was just off shore, and then flew in on a jet, to publicize his ludicrous claim of victory in Iraq? Or when he had Jackson Square lit up like it was Christmas for his visit to New Orleans, to hide the fact that he let the city drown?

    Obama must be one great president, if the only thing you can find to howl about is an irrelevancy like this.

  9. This is hilarious. What are you going to complain about next--Michelle Obama's dresses? Joe Biden's dinner?

    Is it a slow news week?
