Mitt Romney wants to know why airplane windows do not open

I hope he was joking.
Mitt Romney, speaking at a fundraiser in California, spoke about his wife’s harrowing experience on an airplane when it filled with smoke.
He said, according to the LA Times :

“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. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”
So, er, that happened.
I hope that Mitt was joking about why airplane windows don’t open (you certainly wouldn’t want to be able to open them at 20,000 feet!) but I’m reserving judgment. At this rate, I look forward to hearing from him on other safety topics.
No wonder he keeps suggesting you let your pet ride on top of the airplane, “where there is abundant oxygen.”

“It would be so much easier to get people out of wrecks if it weren’t for those durned seat belts they have in cars now. I don’t know why they have them.”
“They should make it easier for you to use a hair dryer in the bathtub.”
“Why do we need so many stoplights? I’m serious, now. They take up so much space and they’re so easy to walk into when you aren’t paying attention.”
“Forget airplanes. Why can’t you open the windows on a space shuttle? This is America.”
