Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Though the Metropolitan Transit Authority has had to deal with minor amounts of flooding from other storms, there has not been a complete flooding of the subway tunnels in recent memory, according to an MTA spokesman.
New York City's subway system has to deal with a lot of water even when the weather is clear. Because many parts of the system are underground and below the water table, the MTA has to remove between 13 and 14 million gallons of water a day, even when there's not a drop of rain.
The MTA has three pump trains and hundreds of pump rooms to whisk water away. But if the subway tunnels under the rivers completely flooded, Klaus estimates that it would take 100 pump trains to remove all that water within a week. Without obtaining extra trains from other states, pumping the water out could take several weeks.
And getting the water out would just be the first step. Then the tunnels have to be inspected for damage. Parts have to be removed, repaired, dried, and tested. With New York City responsible for about $4 billion of economic output per day, a long subway stoppage could add up quickly, according to Jacob.
If you have half of the city's economic capacity curtailed for four weeks, that adds up to damage in the range of $40-50 billion, Jacob said.
The MTA has already taken precautions to try and stave off flooding by sandbagging and covering up ventilation grates in Southern Manhattan, where the Hudson and East Rivers have already begun to creep up into the Financial District. Shutting down the subway system on Sunday may have caused some headaches for evacuees and those foraging for supplies at the last minute, but ensured that commuters wouldn't be stranded or in harm's way.

The bottom line is that your side caused an economic catastrophe that nearly wrecked the country. Obama stabilized it and now he's getting us out of it, slow but sure.
The money? What were you expecting given the size of the impending trainwreck?
Did you think bailing out General Motors and AIG would be cheap? Not to mention state and city governments in dire straits. And millions of out of work being added to the unemployment rolls.
Your shreiks really echo the extent of the disaster the GOP left behind.
... and your boy made the situation much, much worse. That's why he'll have his asz kicked back to Shitcago on November 6th.

Since he came into office, Republicans have consistently attacked President Obama for supposedly being anti-business. As ThinkProgress noted last week, the data shows that this charge is nonsense.
In fact, as the financial website Motley Fool noted today, President Obama is far and away the best president for corporate profits since 1900:
http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/10/26/1...
Business owners overwhelmingly support Romney. If Obama was so good, it would be the opposite. Wishful thinking on your part does not change reality.

Have to leave on a note, though. So....

All sane people are epicurean. The boundary between (sane) epicureanism and (insane) hedonism is crossed when a person expects everyone else to be responsible for the results and effects of their attempts to exercise their epicurean desires, which become hedonistic demands.
If a person exercises their epicurean desires and accepts responsibility for all effects and results, then this person is still sane.
If a person exercises their epicurean desires and expects the general society at large to support the burden of the effects and results of their exercise of epicurean desires. This person is defined as a hedonist.

The Republicans are consistent with epicureanism.
The Democrats are consistent with hedonism.

Then you're an Independent. Maybe.
America was dangerously polarized, and unable to act in ways that even 60 percent of the public could support.
Well, you can thank Karl Rove for that, can't you? Instead of focusing on real issues, Rove concentrated on social issues like gay rights designed to fan the flames of hatred and split the electorate over non-essential items.
The war on terror was falling out of favor, despite the continuing threat.
No, it's more like the public was fed up after seven years without substantial progress. Bush putting Kharzei in power did for us in Afghanistan what Ngo Diem did for us in Vietnam. That, plus all the slaughter caused by his bone-headed drone strikes.
Good ideas were getting thrown out with the bad and Republicans had squandered the chance to govern.
Eight years of Bush left us with two unfinished wars, one of which he lied us into, a looming economic catastrophe, and GOP "trickle down" theories in shambles.

Time for a change.

Democrats are 100% responsible for the economic misery of America.
Fred, see if you can guess which president signed the American Dream Act which really opened the doors for low-income appplicants.

Begins with a G. Last name ends in the letter H.

Also see if you can guess which party was in the majority most of the time from 2001-2009.

Well here you have it folks, Homer supports genocide around the world. Tyrannical dictators are just fine with him. No surprise to me, he has a full set of dictator corning ware he bought with green stamps. I thought those things were gone, but apparently PA is fifty years behind the rest of the country.

Not to worry Carol. Voter apathy is going to kill Obama. He got out the vote last time, but it won't repeat. Many of the poor and young crowd may still support him, but will not show up to vote. His appeal is nowhere near 2008. My bet is that even the black panthers will not man the poles to intimidate this time around. Homer not withstanding of course.
