haggle over whether alterations in the depreciation schedule of
corporate jets will actually have an impact on the deficit, those in the
general aviation trenches are furious.,,Aircraft Owners and Pilots
Association (AOPO) President Craig Fuller told The Daily Caller that
Obama's comments have cast a pall over the industry, causing many who
were considering buying a plane to back away from making a purchase.,,
"The industry has suffered terribly in the last two and a half years and
it has just started to recover. Most of the signs were starting to look
good," said Fuller. "We are so angry as an industry and we have all come
together to try to bring a more fair and balanced description to the
debate.",,(Emphasis added to stress the impact of "regime uncertainty"
on the market.) The economy was bad, and every time Obama opens his
mouth he makes it worse.,,UPDATE: Reader Bill Rickords emails:,,Seems
Obama is completely clueless on the aircraft industry…or his aides are.
Here where I live in Wichita, KS the aircraft capital of the US we have
over 44,000 employed in the aircraft industry in one city of 400,000.
Located here in Wichita are the world's leaders in aircraft building and
maintenance, Boeing, Hawker-Beechcraft, EADS, Spirit, Cessna and many
other parts makers, repair facilities etc. High skilled and highly paid.
And then you have the attendant support industries, high tech machining,
lasers, cabinet building, upholstery etc. ,,What foolishness on his part
as a leader and President. Playing the usual Democrat ploy of envy, but
this time at the expense of the US worker and possibly his own voter
base. Indicates to voters here in the Midwest he knows little of working
or their efforts to build such fantastic world class machines.,,And
guess what….most are his favorite pets, i.e.….Unions. ,,They are less
than happy with his childish antics. ,,As they should be.,,Posted at
