Default Romney complains plane windows don't roll down...

"In his latest gaffe, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney lamented the fact that airplane windows don't roll down.

Romney's wife Ann's plane had to make an emergency landing Friday (Sept. 21) because of an electrical malfunction. Discussing the incident at a fundraiser the next day, he 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. So it's very dangerous."

I'm thinking if the plane windows rolled down that would be bad...

in romneys defense, he could also be saying why dont they find a way to get air from the outside to the inside of the plane, not exactly why they dont have the air plane windows roll down.

I'd love to add this to the line of ridiculous things I've heard from Mitt Romney but from the video clip, I actually feel he was somehow trying to be sarcastically funny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9j0brl9ZSA

Horribly executed, but I didn't really catch sincere wonder from his end.

I think he was referring to after the airplane has made an emergency landing, not during flight. At that point it wouldn't really matter if you open the windows or anything.


Still moronic of course, since if there is a serious issue there are emergency exits and such. Not to mention planes are equipped with oxygen masks.

Even if the plane was on fire you can't depressurize the aircraft by popping open windows. And their are doors.

That's a Sarah Palin remark. Wow. Isn't Romney a well educated guy?

Aside from the whole depressurizing thing don't you think adding oxygen to a fire might just be a bad idea?

Not really.

Do you really want to put out a fire in a plane full of people by simply eliminating oxygen? People kind of need oxygen too.

It could totally be more dangerous to open a window during a fire. Ever heard of a backdraft?

you wanna suffocate a fire, not feed it oxygen..

A plane is tricky tho... Maybe one of those extinguishers that shoot foam or something like that would be good.... not more air.....

If I can't breath and am about to pass out I'll take my chances with that backdraft.

What is real society to you though? Immigrants and minorities are two different types of people.

We assume that all minorities want to be rich like the rich people, or we assume that we all want to make the same amount of money. That doesn't work and it never has. That's communism.
