Bah-Humbug! Stay on point. Facts are Facts. Your OPINION regarding what transpired with Hurricane Katrina DOESN'T matter.

Blanco and Nagin were two Beavis and Butthead bobble-heads.
Bizy being concerned about the "political ramifications" that if they called in the Federal Government, it would look like they failed. Well they did FAIL. And caused many people to DIE.

I'm sure they sleep just fine at night.
Considering they're in a COMA even when they're AWAKE.

Bah!~ You may never fully recover from your retrograde amnesia!

If I were Bush I could never sleep at night knowing the damage I'd done to New Orleans due to Katrina and the rest of America due to failed policies.
We may never fully recover from the Bush years.

I don't have the arrogance to act like I'm capable of interpreting it. So .....
CIA documents that will be the basis of testimony to the House Intelligence Committee this week support United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice's early account of the attacks the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, writes columnist David Ignatius in The Washington Post.
“Talking points” prepared by the CIA on Sept. 15, the same day that Rice taped three television appearances, support her description of the Sept. 11 attack as a reaction to Arab anger about an anti-Muslim video prepared in the United States, Ignatius reported on Saturday.
Citing CIA documents, he wrote that a senior intelligence official said the analysts’ judgment was based in part on monitoring of some of the Benghazi attackers, which showed they had been watching the Cairo protests live on television and talking about them before they assaulted the consulate.
His reporting supports Obama administration claims that early intelligence reports pointed to a connection between the attacks and a crude, anti-Islam video published online by an amateur U.S. filmmaker once convicted of bank fraud.
According to the CIA account,“The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.”
If only there was one side to every story we'd all be watching FOX. But we're not.
Well, it would help if you had experience with anything you see on the video.
... wait a minute. Haven't you been part of a demonstration before?
Do you see anything that looks like a spontaneous demonstration on the video?
Well, the conclusion has to be either there's an invisible spontaneous demonstration, or the video proves the CIA, Leon Panetta, Susan Rice, and Obama liars.

The only question that isn't answered, other than the minute details of exactly who in Al Qaeda did what when they put into action the attack they planned before the video Obama lied about even existed, is who told Susan Rice what to say over all the television networks and at the UN?

Who gave her the lie to repeat?
It's unlikely to be Obama. There's some difference between what he says and what the US Ambassador to the UN says.(That's a problem in and of itself.)

So, WHO told Susan Rice what to say?

... well?????

Joss Whedon: Mitt Romney Right for ‘Zombie Apocalypse’

The man behind “The Avengers,”“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly” released a satirical video endorsing Mitt Romney this Halloween weekend, saying the Republican candidate has some unique qualifications.

Romney has “the vision and determination to cut through business as usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to a zombie apocalypse,” writer and director Joss Whedon says in the joke video.

Users watched the parody more than 800,000 times during its first 24 hours on the Internet.

Though clearly joking, Whedon plays on themes used in more serious ads. Romney has promised to create 12 million jobs to help lift Americans out of poverty, but Whedon warns that a Romney administration would favor the wealthy, leading to economic and societal deterioration.

“It’s his commitment to ungoverned corporate privilege that will nosedive this economy into true insolvency and chaos, the kind of chaos you can’t buy back,” Whedon says.“Money is only so much paper to the undead.”

Whedon also warns against a Romney agenda on social issues:“Romney is ready to make the deep rollbacks in health care, education, social services, reproductive rights that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation, disease, rioting: all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland.”

The video mimics actual campaign ads, showing Whedon in his home and speaking directly to the camera while seeming to go about his normal routine — which turns out to be stocking up for the pending apocalypse.

If any politicians are to blame for storm-related deaths, it was the mayor and the governor.

That's one of the changes you're going to get.
The closest we came was when the Republican-controlled Congress dragged Bill Clinton kicking and screaming to a balanced budget.
I do believe that your future is going to have a lot, lot of TEA in it.
Romney in a landslide, it looks like.
Then, Paul Ryan tells the government how big its going to be.
Gotta love it, dontcha?
Clinton & Republican Congress = balanced budget & surplus

Bush & basically the same Congress = Debt & deficit.

Republicans voted to take us of that path. Paul Lying POS Ryan voted for that.

Paul lying POS Ryan voted to expand government.

Paul lying POS Ruyan voted to double the GD debt.

Fact? There was a GD fact?
I guess adding 60 billion in revenues is a waste of time but lets defund planned parenthood & Big Bird. I much did that save?
You right whiners get GD dumber eery GD day.
The Republicans grew government the last time they held the White House.
They increased Spending.
What will Mitt Romney cut? Do we know?
Or is it part of the Great Mitt Romney Plan: After he takes office, he gets with Republicans & Democrats, sit around the campfire, sing Kumbaya, & magically figure out how to do the crap Romney says he will do.
Romney has no plan. NONE ZERO ZILCH.
The only thing we know he will cut is Planned Parenthood and PBS. We don't know a single loophole he will close or a single deduction he will eliminate.
A penny saved is a penny earned.

I want you to go home and repeat that one thousand times.

Big Bird won't be putting his pecker into the public trough anymore.

Planned Parenthood doesn't need public funds. It has very, very significant private funds.

Government grows when the country becomes engaged in a global war, like the war the Arab muslims started with the United States when they murdered 3000 people.
Government should retract when the war ends. Considering Obama has surrendered Iraq and Afghanistan to the muslim terrorists, the war is ended. Time to cut the government back.
However, Obama didn't end the war by ending it. He surrendered. The Arab terrorist threat is still there, has taken control of more countries than it controlled prior to 9/11/2001, and only an idiot thinks they won't attack us again.
Can't defend the United States, pay the debt the Democrats created, and pay Obama's base to not work at the same time.
Let's see.... who to cut?.... hmmmmmmmm.
How about we cut off support to the people who choose to not become educated and not work?
That sounds like a good idea to me.
If they want something, let them work for it like every other goddam person in the country.
Nobody gets everything they want. The more you study and work, the more you get of what you want.
How about that for some hopey - changey stuff?

What a load of progressive crap.
And in case you forgot, liberals "consistently attacked" Bush for EVERYTHING he did.
Once again Gunner lies.

After 9-11, Democrats stood behind Bush. They supported his action up until they realized they were lied to with the Iraq war.

When we were informed of the financial crisis in Sept. of 2008, it was the Demi0ctats that stood with Bush while the Republicans played politics.

Obama walked in the door in another crisis & the f*cking lowlife POS Republicans played politics. They purposefully wanted people to suffer rather than help us recover.

Paul lying POS Ryan was part of that.

NEW YORK, Oct 29 (Reuters)- The supply of gasoline, diesel and jet fuel into the U.S. East Coast ground almost to a halt on Monday as Hurricane Sandy forced the closure of two-thirds of the region's refineries, its biggest pipeline, and most major ports.

Benchmark New York harbor gasoline futures jumped as much as 11 cents a gallon, with traders fearing that power outages and flooding could leave refiners struggling to restore operations after the broadest storm ever to hit the United States.

More bad news...
