Photo: Romney, Ryan, and Biden's Planes Meet on the Cleveland Tarmac
The Atlantic ^ | Tuesday, November 6, 2012 | David A. Graham

In election 2012, all flight patterns lead to Ohio.

Even with just hours left before the polls close, the campaigns aren't missing a chance to drum up a few last votes in Ohio. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were both scheduled to be in Cleveland for an Election Day rally today, and Joe Biden added to the fun by making an unannounced visit. The result: tarmac hell. CNN's Rachel Streitfeld tweeted this picture, showing all three men's planes at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport (Air Force Two is the one in the background):

I look forward to watching Joe selling closeout jewelry on late night TV for many years to come.

“$10 says Biden gets on the wrong one.”

That’s what the Secret Service is for. Unless of course the RR campaign introduces them to Columbian hookers on the tarmac.

That happens, all bets are off.

As for me; I would LOVE to hear this line on syndicated television in the near future: “Peter; I’ll take Barack Obama to block.”

Sure hope Joe had the pizzas there in 20 minutes or less. The training period can be a beeeatch especially when you use a jet for delivery.

Maybe Joe was just being a nice guy and delivering Paul Ryan’s plane to him early....after all, Joe won’t be needing it after tonight... He can catch a Greyhound back to DC.

Moochelle’s plane has to be a 767, 777, or other widebody model.

Moosechelle's plane is an A380:

Overweight, oversize, and NOT American.

The DNC still has unpaid 2008 bills:

Plugs isn’t sure what century or state he’s in, let alone what city he’s going to.

Anybody besides me think it’s odd that Obama is taking the day off to play basketball?

I can’t imagine such a dumb political move to make on election day...

I think it’s pretty clear he doesn’t know what state he’s in. Whether he knows what a plane is — that’s up in the air.

True. They pay for a one-way ticket to each stop. All we can do is pray they can't get through the TSA grope!

Current Townhall poll...

76% Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan (R)
22% Barack Obama and Joseph Biden (D)
