    Wasn't he the dickhead that made fun of MCain for not being part of the 21st Century? Wouldn't the use of an aircraft that burns 2700 gallons of jet fuel an hour to fly a single person and his entourage, when the speech could have been given on a huge screen in real time, be living in the 20th Century. Like the article states, the fuel that Air Force One uses is only half of it, at least one C5A also goes to carry the limos and it is easily burning 3,000 gallons an hour and using up 28 tires each time it lands. If Marine One is needed, two more C5As will bring it and it's 2 other dummy choppers. I would bet that Air Force One has a fighter escort also, a couple of F-15s and a KC-135 to keep them fueled, all burning fuel.

    The "environmental" President is the biggest abuser of it.

    Don't worry. As a carbon trade off he swore Al Gore to silence for a day. Think of the hot air that'll save.

    You dumb asses should get over it, it takes fuel to make the point the rest of you need to curtail your life.

    Obama and everyone else must tell the rest of you what to do to save the planet, the fact that you post and waste energy is evidence of that.

    you will never get a clue will you. have fun talking in a vacumn, talking were those who know will be moved.

    dont make much sense but when freedom of speech is not allowed what do you expect.

    Fact is, more damage is done to the environment in the name of trying to protect it that it's amazing so few people see this hypocrisy.
