Mitt Romney Doesn’t Get Why Airplane Windows Don’t Open
nymag.com...



Mitt Romney, a 65-year-old man with two advanced degrees, has no idea why they don't let you open airplane windows mid-flight, according to his own remarks at a fund-raiser in Beverly Hills on Saturday:
Romney’s wife, Ann, was in attendance, and the candidate spoke of the concern he had for her when her plane had to make an emergency landing Friday en route to Santa Monica because of an electrical malfunction.
“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,” Romney said. “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."

I can't help but laugh when reading that. And I decided to fake check it to see if they are making things up just to get a laugh. But it seems it is true.

I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”

OMG what a dufus!

If he wins, let's hope he doesn't pass an executive order to make planes have opening windows for fire safety!
