Wrong! She LIED under orders from the administration to help Obama conceal his incompetence. They thought the public would fall for it and forget about the incident, but even after Fox News reported the truth three days later, the administration continued the coverup and the lies. This is why Susan Rice should never be nominated for anything and Obama should be removed from office as soon as possible.

Thought Obama knew how to do that. He won. Why is he interested in Romney's input? He certainly isn't interested in any other republicans' input.
I'm sure a few months in re-education camp is going to help you with all this hate.

Funny how when your side is repudiated TWICE in a row, you have the stupidity to tell others to wake up.
If you didn't live in the bubble of lies that is FAUX News, you might have a clue.
But you drank the kool-aid and watched as the American People rejected the lies and propaganda offered by FAUX.
Like the phony 'War on Christmas' tha only FAUX seems to be aware of!!
They may be the most watched cable news outlet, but it sure didn't help your side when election day came, did it??
Turns out the 3% of nitwits like you who rely on FAUX were suckered, just like the guys in high school fooled you when they said they wouldn't come in your mouth!!
Seems the majority drank the kool-aid. That's the problem.

Obama won approximately 58,720,700 (50.1%) of the popular vote.
Romney won approximately 56,145,950 (48.4%).

That means a lot of Americans - pretty much half - didn't drink the kool-aid. That's all it means.

By the way Obama and a lot of you act, you'd think there were only 6 conservatives left on the planet. More than 56 million of us made our voice heard loud and clear. We are not going to remain silent just because a margin of 1.5% drank the kool-aid.

The president is supposed to represent the entire country - to sit down with the representatives of the other half of the country who did not elect him - not just those who gave him a 1.5% margin.

Just in case you...and he...forgot.

Well Carol you just can't wrap your pea sized brain around the fact that the President was just being a gracious winner. The American people judged the Romney/ Ryan plan and rejected it.
The people who voted him in by a very slim margin could care less about his plan. They only voted for him because he's black. That's the ONLY reason he ever got elected to anything. If he was white he'd have never even been elected Senator.

NO. FEMA provides emergency food and shelter. They cannot force electric companies to work faster.
Here is the mandate of FEMA:
While on-the-ground support of disaster recovery efforts is a major part of FEMA's charter, the agency provides state and local governments with experts in specialized fields and funding for rebuilding efforts and relief funds for infrastructure by directing individuals to access low interest loans, in conjunction with the Small Business Administration. In addition to this, FEMA provides funds for training of response personnel throughout the United States and its territories as part of the agency's preparedness effort.

Like I said. FEMA doesn't set power poles.

he doesn't have to worry about what republicans want.

Of course, it would presumably be better for Obama’s legacy if the economy were to improve during his second term. But he managed to get re-elected once despite failing to turn around the economy. And he doesn’t have to stand for re-election again.

(And did I mention Republicans would be blamed for anything bad that happens?)

The fix is in. Democrats control the presidency, the senate, and the mainstream media. Elections have consequences; they hold the cards. Republicans control the House — just enough levers of power to allow them to be blamed for obstruction.

Republicans are so screwed.

Republicans Have Already Lost Fight on Fiscal Cliff
Obama will never fall on his sword, because he doesn't even have to bring a weapon to this fight.

Meanwhile, as the GOP plots an honorable out, the president is crushing them on the broader political and ideological front. It is the president who lays out the populist parameters of this debate (rich vs. the rest) and the Republicans who are unable to muster a cogent retort or a single enticing reform-minded agenda. Instead, the GOP has cooked up a political strategy that repetitively calls out the president for his lack of "leadership" in hopes of pressuring the White House. Good luck with that!

Failing Negotiation 101: How Republicans Are Losing the Fiscal Cliff Battle

As President Barack Obama begins his campaign for tax hikes, Republicans are losing the political battle over the “fiscal cliff”--but not because Obama won re-election. Rather, they are losing for three reasons that have little to do with the election: first, they have no good alternative to negotiating; second, they have accepted Democrats’ frame for the debate; and third, they have failed to mount a broader media and cultural strategy.

"broader media and cultural strategy"

FOX is not the answer.

From the FEMA website:
FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
What the f'k does that mean? Typical bureaucrat governmentspeak.

You apparently don't know hate when you see it. Read a few of the posts on your side of the fence.

It's not my fault Obama acts like he was crowned king of the progressives instead of the leader of all the people.

Neither am I the only one perplexed by his 2008 budget that was rejected by Democrats in 2008 and that he recycled again in 2012.

He proposed the same spending budget that was rejected by his own Democrats in 2008.

Why wouldn't the GOP reject it this time too?

Republicans couldn't have been any more clear they were ready to sit down and compromise.

Obama sent Geithner to deliver his decree - I mean, plan - and then took off again somewhere.

Point to any president in history who, in a time of crisis, didn't sit down with the opposition to negotiate a deal that would be acceptable to both sides.

You won't find one. This is the only one. He always has more important things to do.

let them reject it. they're screwed no matter what.

the reject, they get called out for obstructionism. they accept, they get called out for being turncoats.

or have you forgotten the day one GOP agenda? and how about the Tea Party and it's castigation of those who don't walk the imaginary line?

bummer.

He presented another laughable budget and expects the GOP to cave so he can blame them again if they don't.

Wake up. Obama is playing the worst kind of politics - the narcissistic/in-your-face kind.

The GOP are more than willing to compromise. Obama is just no where to be found.
