Sleeping on the Job in Washington D.C.

By John W. Lillpop

What in Hades is happening in our nation’s capitol?

To begin with, America is saddled with an inexperienced, anti-American community organizer in the Oval Office, a president who lives in total denial (sleep walking!) about the bankruptcy of his ‘progressive’ ideology and the awful consequences for America.

That would be Barack Obama, an overrated child who naively strives to destroy America in the name of needed "Hope and Change."

Let’s be clear: Having a sleeper in the Oval Office represents a significant threat to America's national security, economic future, and our very way of life.

Three miles away, the utter incompetence of the Obama administration has spread to the control tower at Ronald Reagan airport.

As reported at the reference, in part:

The lights were on but nobody was home. That's what happened when two inbound flights tried to land at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) early on Wednesday, March 23, 2011, according to multiple media sources. This incident was first reported by ABC World News on their Wednesday evening broadcast.

The facility, which handles some 18 million passengers each year, is in a strategic and sensitive corridor containing prohibited airspace up to 18,000 feet, located within three miles of the White House, the U.S. Capital, and the Pentagon

Having such a critical airport control tower unstaffed, especially in light of all the other restrictions that were put into place after September 11, 2001, is shocking, but that was exactly what happened.

Between 12:04 a.m. and 12:28 a.m. EDT on March 23, the supervisory controller in the DCA control tower did not respond when American Airlines (AA) Flight 1012 inbound from Miami International Airport (MIA) contacted the tower on an assigned approach radio frequency.

The flight crew flew a missed approach and reported the problem to Potomac Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON), who tried telephoning the DCA tower without receiving a response.”

The above description could just as well apply to President Obama and his inept response to the federal deficit, unrest throughout the middle east and North Africa, and other major issues of the day.
