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.
"Thrown Israel under the bus"?
You mean, he is not kissing their ass as much as you want him to do so. Thus your twisted perception sees that as throwing them under a bus.

No Mikey, just the result of a public school education. I have been trying to repair it for years. I do not understand what your and TSF problem is.
So you blame your stupidity on your school? I am sure if you tried, you would have learned something. They cannot teach someone who does not wish to learn. And from my observations here, you are not teachable.

Twice on Tuesday and again on Wednesday, talked emotionally, of meeting the young man at a Christmas party and finding him inspiring....One of Doherty's friend's spoke of Glen recalling that Romney introduced himself twice, in twenty minutes...evidently unable to remember having just meeting Glen.....Glen had said it seemed pathetic and comical....(Associated Press)...
Emlu only watches right wing media, so she did not hear the news.
Mitt just did not care what she thinks.

Hit man? I just called out what I read, and I read you threatening me. If I assumed wrongly that you planned to carry out your threat, that does not make me a coward, it makes me safe from those who are self professed as violent and mentally unstable. I know how you get worked up over the slightest of things.

At even a crusise speed of 200 mph, a transport helicopter form Tripoli would have taken 4 hours and 51 minutes to get to Benghazi. If they left when the attack started at 4:00pm, they would have arrived 21 minutes AFTER the ambassadors body had been released from the hospital and the attackers were gone. If they left from Rome, in the same kind of chopper, they would have arrived at Benghazi at 7:00 pm, after the attack was over .
If the house republikans had not so severely cut security budgets,there would have been a chance that security was adequate.
THE FAULT OF THIS FAILURE CLEARLY LIES AT THE FEET OF HOUSE REPUBLIKANS.

"he original residents of Greater New Orleans settled on the high ground along the Mississippi River. Later developments eventually extended to nearby Lake Pontchartrain, built upon fill to bring them above the average lake level. Navigable commercial waterways extended from the lake to downtown. After 1940, the state decided to close those waterways following the completion of a new Industrial Canal for waterborne commerce. Closure of the waterways resulted in a drastic lowering of the water table by the city's drainage system, causing some areas to settle by up to 8 feet (2 m) due to the consolidation of the underlying organic soils. After 1965, the Corps of Engineers built a levee system around a much larger geographic footprint that included previous marshland and swamp. The average elevation of the city is between 1 and 2 feet (0.61 m) below sea level. There are no residential areas of the city that are currently more than 10 feet (3 m) below sea level.
After the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, the Congress mandated the Corps of Engineers as the federal agency responsible for design and construction of flood protection projects, to include those in Greater New Orleans. It also affirmed the principle of local participation in federally funded projects but acknowledged that the $292 million already spent by local interests was sufficient to cover local participatory costs. It also required that local interests had to agree to be responsible for maintenance of any proposed levees before the projects would be initiated.
The heavy flooding caused by Hurricane Betsy in 1965 brought concerns regarding flooding from hurricanes to the forefront. That year, through enactment of the Flood Control Act of 1965 (FCA 1965) Congress authorized the Pontchartrain Hurricane Protection Project. FCA 1965 reiterated the principle of local participation in federally funded projects. The local interests' role was maintenance once the work was complete. Although federally authorized, it was a joint federal, state, and local effort. Almost from the start, the design was impacted by changes due to technical issues, environmental concerns, legal challenges, and local opposition by those opposed to the project. The project was initially estimated to take 13 years, but when Katrina struck in 2005, almost 40 years later, the project was only 60–90% complete with a revised projected completion date of 2015."
As you can read for yourself Miley, the levy system was in place long before Bush was in command. More importantly the following shows where some of the failure of government leadership on all levels, not just Bush, for mitigating some of the Katrina aftermath...
"The heavy flooding caused by Hurricane Betsy in 1965 brought concerns regarding flooding from hurricanes to the forefront.

So again, failing to plan is planning to fail. You have a responsibility to protect yourself first and then others second. Perhaps
Your articles that have no citations or links to verify, do not show why the repairs took so long.
I know the republican agenda is one of keeping funds going to war and not so much to fixing our infrastructure at home.

Again I ask, why do you say the people should have gotten no trailers and money for goods in that crisis?

"Which politician emerged from the mess of Katrina as the biggest bonehead involved? No, it's not Michael Brown, George W. Bush, or even the bumbling Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco.
The clear winner is New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who made every conceivable mistake during the crisis. With plenty of warning, he delayed the evacuation order, had no drivers ready to operate the school buses that stood idle, failed to stock the Superdome with food and water, and let the looters rampage without any interference from police. The excuse given for the failure to get buses moving was that the mayor wasn't able to round up enough drivers. One report said most drivers were women and afraid to make the trip. But a competent mayor would have ordered the drivers to report and provided an armed on-board protector for each bus.
Nagin didn't bother. He did, however, record a message on DVD last July announcing, with other civic leaders, that New Orleans couldn't afford to evacuate the 134,000-odd mostly poor and black people known to lack transportation out of the city in case of a hurricane. When the hurricane struck, the DVD, with its hopeless message, "You're on your own," still hadn't been released.
Nagin also managed to inflame the rage over Katrina, particularly racial rage, by estimating 10,000 hurricane deaths in the city, a figure that now appears to be 10 times too high. Since then, he left the city to visit his evacuated family in Dallas, issued a good deal of blame-shifting rhetoric, and came down for–and then against–inviting New Orleans residents to return quickly to the city. A near-perfect record for incompetence."
And appearently I am not the only one who feels the responsibility for response, mitigation and recovery after a disaster all starts with local governments. Not the feds.
My point about the FEMA trailers and free prepaid Visa cards is there was very little checks or balances that things purchased with them were indeed necessities.

Straw man. We are comparing presidents, not Mayors. I see you will not compare fairly.

<quoted text>I see you don't have any trust in the US Marines, I know a couple that will dispute that little comment. Why would you bring up Bush? He had nothing to do with the attack and murder of Americans in Libya. He read his emails and security reports and attended meetings. You know the only thing that bothers me about your lip service? The comment about the Marines. 50 US Marines is a force to be reckoned with, coming from an Army gal that's saying a lot. 9/11 changed the entire world and how global intel is conducted. Bush just happened to be part of that, it's called history. Clinton signed the death warrant on Bin Laden but President Obama happen to be the president in office when he was found, again history.
although I disagree verily....army rangers hooah. I battle with myself constantly for being the first gen male of my fathers family not joining the rangers. First gen student though.

I know of about 200,000 Marines who would beg to differ on your asessment of your theoretical Benghazi attack.

And your arguements of President Bush are as straw man's as Miley Duq's. Bush hasn't been in office since January 20th, 2009.

Keep shifting blame or fault. Soon enough you will be saying, "yes president Romney?"

And actually this time around, the Red Cross is asking for cash donations instead of food or clothes so they can go buy what is needed.

And to put it in more simple terms for you to understand and probably defiantly agree, you just don't hand someone a blank check or credit card...

Grossly irresponsible.
