So who is to blame for the air traffic controllers falling asleep? It has happened all too often lately and the most recent incident of an air traffic controller deciding to nod off instead of doing their job happened in Reno, NV. So who is to blame, the air traffic controller, the scheduling of shifts, management, etc? Yesterday, Hank Krakowski, the Federal Aviation Administration’s Air Traffic Organization resigned. But, according to Joy Behar of the view, he is not to blame.
Believe it or not, Joy Behar blamed former President Ronald Reagan firing the air traffic controllers in 1981 for these folks not being able to stay awake in 2011. Welcome to the mind of liberals and their thought process.

Thankfully Hasselbeck was there to remind the Libs that there was just a bit of time between Reagan and nap time by air traffic controllers. Although, does any one really think that unions would have prevented such acts? As stated by Hot Air, after all we know that unions are enforcing rigorous performance standards among their members and disciplining them. Sure they are.
