    October 2012 Panel

    Good luck on your redirect. I also have a family and two kids. My wife understands how hard it is even to get into a facility yet alone the academy. She will stay at our current home while working while I will attend the academy (hopefully next year). I'm sure you've talked to your husband about...

    I know, I was joking. I wonder how surprised Osama was before the final shot.

    Mitt Romney on ATC

    If it were my call I'd have brought tagged him, brought him here, shaved off his beard, presented him to the families of those who were killed on 9/11 and if he survives that send him to America's worst prison to welcome his "72 virgins."

    Mitt Romney on ATC

    I'm fine with Unions as long as you have a choice and there are union leaders who really will look out for their members. I haven't heard anything really bad from NATCA in the news and have met some really excellent controllers in NATCA. I believe most of the bad reputations associated with...

    Mitt Romney on ATC

    I don't think you acknowledge the complexity of the enormous amount of work that would take, not to mention the fact that they'd have to figure out if they'll continue with FAA academy, where CTO's and CTI's would go, etc. If Romney wins he'll cut programs, but with all that is going on right...

    Mitt Romney on ATC
