Putting Oxygen On a Fire

This is the man that some people still believe should be President of this country??? Not only did he recently insult nearly 1/2 of this nation's population, but now he has demonstrated a lack of basic knowledge possessed by most grade schoolers.

During a campaign fundraiser, he spoke of his concern for his wife, who was on an airplane flight that experienced electrical problems and had to make an emergency landing. Romney stated,
“I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were...When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous."
Really? Really? Perhaps we should redesign those airplane windows so that they open. A little fresh air at 30,000 feet would be quite refreshing, don't you think? And if there were an emergency, like a terrorist on board, everyone could just jump out! I, for one, would gladly help Mitt Romney out of his window at altitude. It's also a real problem, as Mitt helpfully pointed out, that one can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft when you have a fire in the aircraft because, as everyone knows, the best thing to put out a fire is more oxygen! After all, if you turn the entire plane into a flaming fire ball, it will burn itself out much faster.

Perhaps if Mitt wins the Presidency (it hurts my heart to even type that), airline safety will improve. Perhaps every passenger will have his or her own oxygen canister and window. Maybe Mitt will help improve transportation safety for the nation in other areas as well. Cars would no longer have seat belts because, as we all have experienced, they require extra time to remove after a crash. So it's very dangerous. Motorcycle and bicycle helmets would be outlawed because they make your head hot and sweat could drip into your eyes and blur your vision. So it's very dangerous. Drink holders would be  made to fit liquor and wine bottles because holding them in your hands while driving and drinking is hazardous. So it's very dangerous. The country would rise to a new level of safety once Romney got his mitts into it.

Think about it. The President must handle dangerous situations on a moment's notice. Do you want someone who would add oxygen to a fire?


  1. GREAT post ... hopefully your little heart won't break and you won't have to cross the border! In a worst case scenario, I am going to ask for plantation shutters on my airplane window!

  2. There's plenty of air between his ears!
