So what is your point? Clinton did the same thing and he was/is a draft dodger. Of course the president is going to be on or around various military vehicles,ships and so forth.
yeah, but you never saw Clinton pretending to be a war hero in a flight suit. (That was the most ridiculous and most embarrassing thing I ever saw)

admit what? That a majority of Americans supported his war decision, admit that he has a high approval rating? admit that the military supports him? Admit that your team has gotten too liberal for the American people? Admit that the GOP controls the House, Senate, and WH?

I don't know why I'm bothering but here it goes anyway.
When you fly in a military jet there is this thing under your butt called an ejection seat.
Repeat after me, Colonel: E.. J.. E.. C.. T.. I.. O.. N.. S.. E.. A.. T..
Now try to get this through your skull
The flight suit is made to strap you into this seat so that IF you need to eject you stay connected to the seat and the parachute attached to it. Not to mention the inflatable parts and other measures included (shark repellant, signal flares ect.)Its called safety regulations.
Having a seat belt in your car will not save you if you don't use it. Same here but at 25,000 ft and I would guess around 600 MPH.
I swear, some people are just grasping for anything they can find to demonize Bush. He may not be the best president ever but he's hardly the worst.
