You can also ask workers at Sensata who had their hopes crushed when Romney turned his back on them and ignored their pleas to save their jobs.
Bain sent 170 Sensata jobs to China and the workers reached out to Romney several and were ignored.
Wow...170 jobs!

How many jobs will be lost at General Dynamics, Pratt & Whitney, GE, Lockheed, Honeywell, United Technologies, Raytheon, Northrup Grumman and Boeing when Obama slashes defense funding?

Do you even give a f**k?

Failed Bush FEMA director Michael Brown says Obama, FEMA acted too quickly in hurricane response
So Ö Brown is peeved that Obama disrupted his schedule in anticipation of something that was going to affect a large percentage of the entire U.S. population, unlike that time when something happened in Benghazi that nobody knew about until after it was already over? Wow. I think I may actually, seriously hate this guy.
It may be the continuing news coverage of flooded streets and homes in wreckage, but I have had about all I can take of these wretched little twerps. As his big relief contribution, we've got Mitt Romney collecting canned goods in Ohio (yes, that's what's going to help the entire northeast recoveróa busload of canned soup), and the guy George Bush put in charge of the last gargantuan hurricane disaster is muttering about how political it is that Obama is, you know, actually effing doing stuff. A party whose biggest philosophical discussion about massive, multi-state disasters is whether our own government should really give a flying damn about them at all, and who thought it was preposterous for a war in a foreign land to be paid for at all but mew about how "immoral," etc., it is to help our own citizens after a disaster unless and until we've written the right things on the right budget lines.
I may actually despise these people today. I think I'm going to have to proactively ignore everything these insufferable, amoral, sociopathic nitwits say for the next 12 hours or so, just to maintain some last shred of faith in humanity.

Did you take Robme at face value, when he said he had expected Obama to stop the rise of the ocean, at the convention last summer...?
You do know Obama's not REALLY God, right?
Get a grip.
Many people believe that you believe he is; that'll be 3 Hail Obamas and good Act of Giggles Biden.

Gee, what time do you plan to kill your husband? Stupid questions do not deserve an answer. Obama avoids stupid questions as well, rightly so.
Why is it stupid? He is on record saying it, so why didn't he just confirm it and say yes?

Calling america arrogant, dimissive and divise was an apology.
Dictionary.com agrees:

The definition of apology is "a written or spoken expression of one's regret, remorse, or sorrow for having insulted, failed, injured, or wronged another."

That's exactly what he did.

A natural disaster is a good time to reflect on what we need to do to avoid an unnatural disaster. Right now, thatís clearer than everódonít allow Mitt Romney to become president. When asked about FEMA in the primary debates, Mitt said responsibility for disaster relief should be foisted onto the states. How would you like to be in a life threatening situation, and be depending on Rick Scott or Jan Brewer for help? Evidently Mitt was concerned that wasnít crazy enough for base, because he added ďAnd if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, thatís even better.Ē Got that? If youíre flooded, call Goldman Sachs! Mitt wants for-profit disaster relief! Mitt, there are already private-sector people taking part in disaster reliefóthose slime-balls who do things like sell bottled water for $10 a bottle. Mitt wants that on a corporate scale

So what exactly am I apologizing for? Flack's had dozens of predictions all wrong, I do not believe he has ever apologized to me. So now we are apologizing for off the cuff remarks?
