    Oh, and he also brought in 6 million at this fundraiser. Give him some credit, he's a fundraising machine, especially these last few months.

    This just can't be true. He has traveled in chartered jets most of his life. He need to quit thinking and just shut up.

    Wasn't he briefed by the Secret Service last week?

    Obviously they didn't do the job properly because anybody aspiring to be President should first be told the way out.

    Romney, a man with two graduate degrees and the Republican nomination for President of the United States, doesn't understand that aircraft are pressurized?

    I bet Romney knows there are only 50 states and that it's pronounced Core-man.

    Obama supposedly graduated summa cum laude and he thinks there are 60 states.

    What's your point?

    This is a BS OP. There are many aircraft with windows that open. Many cockpit windows open, and for high end private aircraft windows can be opened if the buyer wants to pay for it. There is no technical reason that all windows in an aircraft cannot be opened. Its just cheaper to have windows that cannot be opened, and it avoids the risk of some fool opening a window at altitude.

    Yep, another fool OP trying to make something out of nothing.

    Um...another funny liberal thread trying to pick nits.

    First of all, many private jets have windows that open - when ambient pressure is roughly equalized with cabin pressure, and when the lockout isn't engaged.

    I'm sure libs made no effort to glean something intelligent from Romney's comment, but there was nothing wrong with it. For purposes of clearing a cabin of smoke or gas, it wouldn't be a bad idea at all to have a feature that allows better exhaust circulation. That's what Romney's comment meant.

    It's stupid to try to make this about intelligence, and neither will I poke fun at the liberals in this thread who obviously do not know about features on higher end aircraft.
