I'm a bit late on a Sunday evening to get the best response to this...but, gotta put it here for everyone to consider..and to react to if they want (it's what repubs say nowadays with regard to dems, okay?):
Obama Inauguration Sets Record for Private Jets
Recession? What recession?
The inauguration of Barack Obama set an all-time record for the number of pricey private jets flying into the Washington area for the festivities.
At Washington Dulles airport, up to 600 private jets landed in the days leading up to the inauguration.
That number shatters the old record of 300 private planes that the airport accommodated for President George W. Bush’s second inaugural in 2004, Bloomberg reported.
“Of course, flying private to a celebration of a populist, pro-environment president is a bit like the Detroit execs jetting to Washington for bailout money,” Robert Frank observed in the Wall Street Journal.
