It has nothing to do with who the President is! I doubt President Obama has anything to do with ordering helicopters. If the helicopters need to be replaced, then they need to be replaced. Really what matters is that at least their buying American made helicopters.
Well, the bankrupt country is a big part of it but, that said, in these tight money times, we look at every expenditure. These helicopters and AF1 may all need replacing and that is not really the President's doing. It is just happening on his watch and there is an attitude of "we've always done it this way because that's the mission." As per some comments below, maybe we need to look at the mission. Several years ago, our city brought in a new city manager, and as the 1st budget was being prepared, he told all department heads to go to a zero based budget, not just take last year's and add to it. They did and he wound up with 3 million $ or so less than the year before with all increases that everybody wanted. Is it to much to ask that our folks in power do the same?
Yes. Yes it is.

Yeah, I sent you one back. Matter of fact 2. FA had and old Email (gmail) for you and I just clicked that link. It returned and I used the new one in your Email. Not sure what day but same day you sent it.Let me know if you didn't get it and I'll resend
nope, nothing - and I do have gmail. I must have erased that email because I just tried finding your info and I couldn't find it. This is bizarre.
