jtormey3 8 years, 3 months ago Exiting FAA Acting Administrator Bobby Sturgell: "You'll notice I'm throwing lots of new runways, equipment, money, jobs, "specifications" and "certifications", acronyms, programs, "Spaceports"(!), kudos, and concocted self-serving studies and study 'results' at communities and the media, right before I get chucked out of office. That's on PURPOSE. The concocted study results are a translucent attempt to make me appear to have actually been a regulator, rather than a simple aeromercantile shill. It's a GREAT trick - I announce that I have solved problems which I myself initially caused!: The runways, programs, and other rewards are called 'bribes'. They are intended to buy the silence and cooperation of those that receive them. As for the other folks, I'll just abuse them. For fun, I once again will try to blame Air Traffic Controllers, pilots, Congress, co-workers, community residents, Israel, India, the Philippines, potash miners, unions, Mother Nature, and even my economic co-conspirators the airlines on my way out the door, for all of my own failures. The remaining other folks, well, I'll just tell FAA 'Safety Officer' Nick Sabatini to intimidate. My best strategy is comprised of the bribes, though. This provides me job security in the private sector for years to come, and might make everybody forget those 3,500-and-climbing aviation fatalities that occurred on my FAA watch".
