For folks who thought I was being political or one-sided in posting about the Romney campaign’s drawing for tickets on the campaign plane, I’d remind folks that I did cover Obama Points, the loyalty currency the President introduced during the 2008 campaign, more than once.
And I predicted Obama’s victory 8 months before the last election (as well as that we were headed into the worst recession since World War II, that we were in a liquidity trap the Fed would be powerless against for some time, and that the coming four years would see big deficits and no tax increases — not bad on the prediction score!).
I have political preferences of course, I write about my thoughts on policy occasionally (mostly with regards to travel issues — such as the TSA, air traffic control, small airport subsidies). But I’m not really a fan of Democrats or Republicans. But I will write about their travel, like Mike Huckabee complaining about his treatment as a Delta Diamond, former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford’s experiences with award redemption when he traveled to South America for his affair, Ron Paul’s elite status upgrades, and the elite status comps that Delta gives to Georgia politicians.
When it comes to travel, miles, points, and status — no politician is safe!
