Mitt Romney Thinks It’d be Neat if You Could Open Up Plane Windows

By 09.24.12

The presidential hopeful, speaking about his wife’s recent plane scare, shared a few thoughts on how to make air travel more fun … and lethal.

“I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were,” Romney said. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”

I smell a hot-button issue.
