When and how did Mitt piss Chris Christie off? Are any of you following this? Any right wing comments on the new Obama/Christie ties?
Again......

Duh! Obama is going to win NJ anyways! It's called self preservation. He's a Republican Gov in a liberal state and the liberal NJ voters will remember today two years from now.

I could picture you now at the front door. Taking the young kids candy for all the other kids that didn't get to go trick-or-treating. Redistribution lessons at a young age.

Correction. The kids asking for handouts were conservative, the kids expecting handouts were liberal.

Eighty-year-old Bryna Franklin says she’s never voted anything but Democrat from the time she could vote. In fact, she was so committed to her party she once headed the Israel branch of Democrats Abroad and was a delegate to the 1992 Democratic National Convention. But the faith in her party has been shaken during the four years that Barack Obama has been president, and she has decided – for the first time in her life – to vote Republican. The Missouri native also penned an op-ed in the Jerusalem Post published Monday night in which she writes:

" In all of my 80 years, I have never before voted for a Republican for president. But this time around, I am not only proudly voting for Mitt Romney, but feel compelled to encourage others to do the same. I grew up in a Reform Jewish family in Missouri, and came of age politically as a proud Democrat due to the inspiration of my native-son president, Harry Truman. I have been involved in Democratic Party politics for many years in both America and Israel, including serving as vice chairperson of the Franklin County Democratic Central Committee in Missouri. It is precisely because of my belief in the longtime ideals of the Democratic Party that I feel the responsibility to speak out now. Why? First, because we ask in each presidential cycle,“Are we better off now than we were four years ago?” This year, the answer is a resounding “NO!” But even more troubling, in so many ways, President Barack Obama has betrayed the ideals of the great Democratic Party. He is a poor successor to Truman’s legacy. Nowhere has President Obama failed to live up to Democratic ideals more than in his relationship with democratic Israel. From his creation of “daylight” between our countries to constant public criticism of Israeli policy – does Obama do this to any other country?– Obama has allowed severe deterioration of our special relationship just as Israel and the world face extreme danger. President Obama’s open hostility to Israel’s prime minister, and his insulting true feelings caught on an open microphone, indicate antipathy towards the citizens of Israel. Obama’s administration does not even maintain symbolic gestures: at the recent opening of the United Nations Assembly, the United States sat and listened to the address by the president of Iran, yet Ambassador Rice was absent during the entire presentation by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. This wasn’t lost on the leaders of Israel’s enemies. Coming from Missouri, I take immense pride that President Truman had the courage, conviction and moral compass to recognize the nascent state of Israel. By comparison, President Obama has steered our relationship to an abysmal low."

I would bet that in the 1850's she also 'voted' against Dred Scott. I am not going to speak against the elderly with dimensia.

Good video Pro. She won't be the only person of Jewish decent to vote for Romney. Obama has lost his popularity with the Jewish community since he has thrown Israel under the bus.

Well, that depends. Should the corps of engineers repair and maintain the levy system as part of that federal aid? Sure. Does every resident deserve things that are necessary to sustain life? Of course, but that doesn't come in the form of free prepaid Visa cards or FEMA trailers.
Ray Nagan, the then mayor of New Orleans, failed to protect his citizenry and subsequently added to the confusion afterwards by trying to infer help was being denied because New Orleans was a "chocolate city." Perhaps if Nagan gave the LEPC it's due attention prior to Katrina, some of the aftermath could have been lessened or mitigated sooner. Only Nagan knows that answer but one would be compelled to ask why a city government would invest in a casino over investing in infrastructure, such as levies. My first batt chief out of rookie school said failing to plan is planning to fail. Not a new concept, but it started to make sense the older I got. Part of that is self reliability and responsibility. Even you Miley, just were championing employees this and employees that. Part of that employee empowerment you are alluding too, is self reliability and self responsibility. But I don't have to tell you that, you're already a seasoned manager and already know that, right?
First, the failure of Bush to upgrade the levee in advance could have prevented billions in loss. Likely hundreds of billions.
Second, no matter if all had evacuated, the federal government would still need to help house the ones left homeless.
Why do you say the FEMA trailers were not needed? Were you going to just leave them out in the elements? Why not give them a card to get things they need to live in such time of crisis?
You make a lot of outrageous claims, yet give no reasoning behind the wishes.
Pretty easy to Monday morning quarterback in the lazy boy.

What is true is, Mitt is pretending he did not imply he wants FEMA ended. He is playing lawyer. Like I said, he crafted his words in a way he could back out of his position like an etch o sketch.
I call it 'bending the truth'. It is a grey area. You cannot comprehend these things as you only see in black and white like a TV from the fifties.

The newly released pictures of President Obama in the situation room looking all presidential while deploying help to those in need during the aftermath of Sandy are so cute. Why wasn't he in the situation room deploying help to those who were being attacked in Benghazi? Oh, that's right. He had to get some rest so he could go to Vegas the following day to play grab ass with Beyonce!
When one cannot find anything to criticize, divert.

The contrast between Obama's handling of this storm compared to Bush's handling of Katrina is clear.

A republican friend of mine posted on facebook how he refused candy to a kid wearing an Obama mask.
It really made the cartoons that the liberals put out of republicans on Halloween seem so accurate.
One cartoon had some kids at the door of a republican. He told the kids the candy is on the roof, and if you are lucky, some will trickle down to you.
