Why did Mr. Obama have to arrive and leave from JFK? Couldn't he use some military base for that? This trip created a major disarray at JFK, which is not the best airport anyway, and horrendous delays for thousands of people trapped for hours on the tarmac and in the air. Maybe things like that should be taken into consideration when scheduling President's future trips around the country.
