How your Connecticut representatives travel

Mike Finkbeiner sends along this photo of our elected congresspersons aboard Air Force One – no commercial coach for them.

Reached for comment, Greenwich’s Jim Himes denied to FWIW that they were actually, you know, “flying”. “That was a photo-op at Westchester airport”, he insisted, “and right after they took the shot we were escorted off, to make room for Bo. – Really!”

Who's got it better than us?

    Why change a thing? We like the club just the way it is! We just need to get rid of those pesky tea baggers!

      The arrogance of Himes. Showing off on the Presidential plane and then off to a minumin wage rally. It’s disgusting.

    Something does not add up. White Plains airport cannot handle the 747 usually used by POTUS as AF1. The max size that airport can handle is 737 / MD80s / smallest airbuses. That cabin looks to spacious to be the chopper.

      It’s amazing how Himes any chance he can poses for the camera. And they call Blumenthal a camera hog. This is all about his re election effort. He spends most of his time raising money for Obama now and traveling outside Ct.. He has got to go!

  4. Our CT delegation to Congress supported relief for homeowners flood insurance premiums, with yesterday’s bi-partisan vote for HR3370.

    They were invited to return to the home districts on AF1, arriving at Bradley this morning.

    Aw, CF — you got me! (wrt Himes’ “quote” above!) Still a newbie here, maybe I oughtta go back in lurking mode.

    What a bunch of clowns.
    As they say in sports “Act like you’ve been there before.”
    I bet these people pee themselves a little every time they see the O-man.

      If I take off my glasses, I see Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, and that weird redhead named Rebekah that Drudge insists on showing pictures of for the last six months.

  13. sounds like Jimbo ‘splains the photo op much like he holds forth on the success of Obamacare:

    • So “there are no death panels” since he claims to have read “several times” the Bill before he voted on it the clause that eliminates care for those over 76 eliminated the need for panels ad fiat…..in response to “pure baloney” he touts salami….

    Jimbo is a smug schmuck.

    They look like amateurs or maybe some of the gawkers that you get at open houses in mid country mansions.

    I thought most Congress folk were millionaires by now. Shouldn’t litlle Jimmy and Friends just have flown back home on their Gulfstreams?
