How many days have they been waiting for help?
Are you blameing Obama?
Where are the "big Mouths" who trashed bush?
Hiding under the trash and the water damage?
Your silence is deafing.
Come out and treat Obama as you did Bush.
You are just a big bunch of democrat hypocrites.

Hate rules your fairness. Stupid rules your lives
and ruins others.

Actually Maine is more famous for the saying "If I divorce my wife is she still my sister?"

Cantor said any need to increase federal assistance for hurricane relief should be offset by equal spending cuts in the budget. In an interview on Fox News just before the storm hit, Cantor said this when asked about federal funding to help those in need of help from FEMA and other federal agencies:“We’re just going to need to make sure that there are savings elsewhere to do so.” His spokeswoman later doubled down on that statement telling Talking Points Memo:“Eric has consistently said that additional finds for federal disaster relief ought to be offset with spending cuts."

At least the oysters are still there. For families that were home builders for generations, there are no more homes to build. Barney and Bernanke took care of that. What about those people in the building business who have had their children's inheritance dashed to bits by our government? No amount of money could compensate for that. They know how slaves felt, having everything in their lives taken away from them and then doomed to work menial jobs in supermarkets and Kmart. Broke, bankrupt, with no hope of getting free of debt. Where is their social justice?
