Mitt Romney Advocates Planes With Windows that Open
Okay, with Sarah Palin and the Little Bush I thought Republican stupidity had reached it's peak. But seems Mitt Romney wants to compete.
It appears Mitt Romney thinks airplanes should have windows that open...in case, you know, of a fire.
“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. 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.
Ummm...SO many stupids in this one statement. No wonder Republicans don't believe in global warming! They seem to not understand such basic science as a.) there is VERY LITTLE oxygen at cruising altitude (that's why they pressurize the cabins!), b.) wind speeds of a cruising airplane make the effects of an open window rather devastating (imaging tying your dog to the top of a plane and then taking off, Mitt...), or c.) oxygen FEEDS fires, so it isn't just oxygen you need.
By the way, Mitt, they do have those oxygen masks in airplanes so you can BREATHE while the fire can't...I think there are government regulations requiring those masks. But of course we could repeal those government regulations, can't we?
Glad the minor fire on Ann Romney's plane remained minor. But really, Mitt. Do you have to use it as an excuse to look as stupid as a Bush?
