Unfortunately Romney has already said he would dump FEMA in his primary debates.
Each state would manage their own FEMA based on their own individual needs. Or something similar.

I think it's the "each state" part and "managing their own business and affairs" that stumps so many of you big government thinkers.

If you're ever going to get it, you're going to have to readjust your thinking.

Try thinking major reforms, having more money in your pocket and states governing themselves instead of an overbloated federal government.

I won't be back on here until Sunday, so put this in your favorites and refer back to it every now and then.

Maybe it will help.

Have a good weekend.

That whole thing was so phony, it was pathetic. Meanwhile back at the ranch in IN:

IN-Sen: Look out! Dem Rep. Joe Donnelly's own internal pollster, Global Strategy Group, confirms the movement in his direction that the DSCC's firm, Anzalone Liszt, hinted at last week, in the wake of Richard Mourdock's instantly infamous comments about rape and God's will. Donnelly is now beating Mourdock 43-36, while Libertarian Andrew Horning is at 9, up from 40-38-8 a week ago. In a two-way matchup, Donnelly is ahead 47-38.(Anzalone had Donnelly leading 47-40 in the three-way.)

His experience lies in sucking the blood out of American companies, and selling off their bones. His VP's experience is as a life-long government employee, and the ins and outs of wrangling government subsidies / contracts for the Ryan family's construction business.

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later was denied by U.S. officials -- who also told the CIA operators twice to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to "stand down."

Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The rescue team from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.

At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Spectre gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours -- enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.

Watch "Special Report Investigates: Death and Deceit in Benghazi" on Fox News at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday and 10 p.m. on Sunday.

A Special Operations team, or CIF which stands for Commanders in Extremis Force, operating in Central Europe had been moved to Sigonella, Italy, but they were never told to deploy. In fact, a Pentagon official says there were never any requests to deploy assets from outside the country. A second force that specializes in counterterrorism rescues was on hand at Sigonella, according to senior military and intelligence sources. According to those sources, they could have flown to Benghazi in less than two hours. They were the same distance to Benghazi as those that were sent from Tripoli. Spectre gunships are commonly used by the Special Operations community to provide close air support.

According to sources on the ground during the attack, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help.

"There's a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here," Panetta said Thursday. "But the basic principle here ... is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on."

U.S. officials argue that there was a period of several hours when the fighting stopped before the mortars were fired.

Can you say Vetter?
DEADBEAT CLUB: Women: NJ Senator Bob Menendez paid us for sex in the Dominican Republic — and we only got 20% of what he promised. Now that’s just tacky. Unlike Menendez, these women earn their pay.
Anyway, this should be a boost for Menendez’s opponent, Joe Kyrillos. After all, this proves that it was really Menendez:
“He lies,” she said of Menendez.“He says one thing and does another.”
The campaign ads write themselves!
And what is it about corrupt members of Congress and the Dominican Republic?
UPDATE:“Sen. Menendez… did you vote for Lily Ledbetter but then underpay your prostitutes?”
Poor Tucker...he gets more ludicrous and desperate by the hour...is he married to Gretchen...that might explain the dumbing down. Not like Vitter: Menendez isn't married and denies the scurrilous attempt to give the Gormless Odious Perverts an October surprise; the anonymous prostitutes only identified him from a photo; Carlson, Drudge, etc., can't even verify that Menendez was in the DR at the time...you guys are so third string.

Oh yes, the each state argument: Then you'd have situations like Jan Brewer helping only who she deemed worthy of help.
No thanks; It's never going to happen.
You've been sold that bill of crap and don't understand the ramifications of it. There would be so much corruption that your head would spin off.
