The scoop from Washington

Sweet Nov. 7 Obama clip: Obama plane wrong.

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Credit the New York Times Obamanarian Jeff Zeleny for breaking the story about why Barack Obama was late Tuesday for an event in Cedar Rapids, Ia.

Turns out the Obama charter landed in Des Moines by mistake. LINK

Zeleny excerpt:

Update: The travel delay, as it turns out, was not because of winds. While they were strong, the Obama campaign plane apparently flew to Des Moines by mistake. So the plane fired back up and jetted to Cedar Rapids. Because of his tardiness, Mr. Obama lingered longer than usual to take extra questions from the crowd.
