http://www.theatlantic.com/notes/al...r-the-pope-so-they-made-his-plane-turn-around Can you believe it? Obama carries on his legacy of being late for virtually every public appearance, whether it be press conferences, meetings with Congress, campaign appearances or anything else. Thus time he and Biden were running late to greet the Pope on his first visit to the USA. The plane made several loops over North Carolina to get the arrival timing right. See the AirLive tracker image in the story. Blaming beltway traffic is hardly an excuse. Roads are cleared when the limo caravan is on the road. Alternatively, where was Marine One? Judging what I saw on TV, additionally Alitalia AZ4001 was parked for at least 15 minutes before AFB personnel went up the stairs to do whatever it is they do with the door. Can't make it up. No common courtesy, no respect. No excuse. Disgusting. Pfft.
