  •  Not about aircraft fires-Pres is on duty 24/7 (4+ / 0-)

    I agree aircraft fires are serious business but the gaff really isn't about aircraft fires its about the gaff. On one level it's a  harmless comment from a guy who is concerned for his wife.  But the President of the US is on duty 24/7.  With the nuclear launch codes he has the power to destroy life on Earth as we know it.  Therefor the President has to be someone who is aware all the time and has the capacity to self sensor his speech for possible pit falls.  So this isn't about aircraft fires it's about another open mouth insert foot moment by an impulsive person who demonstrates a pattern of engaging mouth before starting brain, if he has one.  Sure we all say stupid things and everyone has gaffs now and then but the President of the US can't demonstrate a pattern of blurting out the first thing he thinks.
