Romney Doesn"t Know Why Airplane Windows Won"t Open, Calls The Closed Window Policy "A Real Problem"

When I read this, I started laughing my @ off! If this is the real thing (and I'm not sure if it is), then Romney is official dumb.

"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."

He says you should be able to open them if the plane crashes.

A bit out of context. He's referring to when there's an emergency and there's no oxygen in the plane. It doesn't work at all scientifically but this thread makes it look a lot worse than it is (which is still bad). http://www.latimes.com...

I have no problem with that statement.

Don't many planes have explosive bolts to get the doors off kinda like they did with the Nasa pods? I don't know, but I guess it would be too expensive to make emergency windows.

why wouldn't they just drop the O2 masks if the plane was filled with smoke?

I'll deal with smoke in order to know that some j.a. isn't going to open a window at 34,000 feet and give everyone cerebral edema or what ever the h it is called.
