"real dumb"
Thank you for your post. Just out of curiosity I have been tracking your BULLMANURE. In the last 10 days+ you have posted just over 350 pieces of BULLMANURE. In the same period of time more than 500 from 65 different posters posts have been directed at you, laughing at you and mocking you.
I will say on an average day a couple of nuts agreed with your BULLMANURE, the numbers, 14 different posters on 26 occasions supported the BULLMANURE you spew.
"real dumb" even you are not so dumb that you missed the laughter and derision directed at you.
Are You Kidding

Boehner and Obama had negotiated a compromise....and then Obama backed out, demanding bigger tax increase....
Obama has a serious character flaw in that he is unwilling to negotiate directly with competitors, whether domestic or foreign...he is apparently afraid of or disdainful of any kind of personal he makes demands through the media and then pouts when the other side will not give in to his demands.....
Homer may know people like this.....
Bah, Fox News, rightwing talk radio. Turn that garbage off already.

You'd have electrical power now if Obama didn't stuff a trillion dollars into the pockets of Democrat cronies instead of using Porkulus to upgrade the infrastructure, like burying the power lines, idiot.
Yup. Keep voting for thieves and leeches and egomaniacs. How's that working out for you with a trillion dollars siphoned off by Democrat cronies and your power lines still up in the air and being knocked down by a weak hurricane?
Keep eating that cold tuna fish in the can. Maybe you need to eat cold canned food for a few more weeks before you'll wake up to the fact that the Democrats are stealing everything from you.
But, look on the good side. You don't have to get out of bed to turn the lights out.)))))
I do have power you stupid fck. Peddle your lies elsewhere.

What you refer to as "homes" are cottages to them, second or third "homes" - mostly just vacation spots for wealthy Democrats & Republicans, but you wouldn't know that. You and you OWS buddies use tents in parks. Many are happy as now insurance will pay for fresh new walls & paint.
Maybe if you weren't such a loser and didn't make bad decisions in life, you would know these things, Democrat loser.
some of the owners are not particularly wealthy....the homes have been in the family for generations and various family members take turns for a vacation week or two each year...this time of year, they have until the Spring to clean things up....hopefully with taxpayer dollars....

Nah, he shoots his guns just about 365 days a year, he may take a day off for Christmas, pretty much every day after work, probably blowing off steam from his dead end job. I imagine there are shot up Obama posters everywhere. Doesn't bother me but my wife gets a little concerned about a stray bullet headed our way.

CBS is getting in the coverage of Benghzi-gate,with Fox now giving the same report.
"Sources: Key task force not convened during Benghazi consulate attack"
"CBS News has learned that during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group,(CSG).
"The CSG is the one group that's supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies," a high-ranking government official told CBS News. "They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon." ...
Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack....
Absent coordination from Counterterrorism Security Group, a senior US counterterrorism official says the response to the crisis became more confused. The official says the FBI received a call during the attack representing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and requesting agents be deployed. But he and his colleagues agreed the agents "would not make any difference without security and other enablers to get them in the country and synch their efforts with military and diplomatic efforts to maximize their success."
Another senior counter terrorism official says a hostage rescue team was alternately asked to get ready and then stand down throughout the night, as officials seemed unable to make up their minds.
A third potential responder from a counter-terror force stationed in Europe says components of AFICOM -- the military's Africa Command based in Stuttgart, Germany -- were working on course of action during the assault. But no plan was put to use....
"The response process was isolated at the most senior level," says an official referring to top officials in the executive branch. "My fellow counterterrorism professionals and I (were) not consulted."
The official says a protocol set forth in a classified presidential directive calls for the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) to be convened in the event of a possible terrorist attack. According to a public military document, the directive was designed to "synchronize the efforts of all the government agencies that have a role to play in the Global War on Terrorism."
The Administration also didn't call on the only interagency, on-call, short notice team poised to respond to terrorist incidents worldwide: the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST). FEST's seasoned experts leave within four hours of notification and can provide "the fastest assistance possible."
FEST Teams deployed immediately after al Qaeda bombings of US embassies in East Africa in 1998, and the USS Cole in 2000, but were not used for Benghazi, to the chagrin of some insiders. It's likely that the CSG task force, if contacted, would have recommended FEST aid.
"First a tactical response was needed," says a senior U.S. counterterrorism official, "and while that was being implemented, the holistic response could have been developed and deployed within hours" which could have allowed the FBI investigate safely on site well ahead of the "24 days it took." ...
A White House official told us that at the start of the attack, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta "looked at available options, and the ones we exercised had our military forces arrive in less than 24 hours, well ahead of timelines laid out in established policies." He also said a "small group of reinforcements" was sent from Tripoli to Benghazi, but declined to say how many or what time they arrived. The Pentagon moved a team of special operators from central Europe to Sigonella, Italy but gave no other details."

CBS is just another group of rightwing stooges.....

<quoted text>Yeah right__I get it and down here it's the same deal during event weeks for six to eight people.
But__those homes cannot be built back the way they were due to the modernization of building codes and that insurance companies will jack the sht out of the rates.
Case in point New Orleans, after Katrina where it's costing mega bucks to reconstruct the foundations.
Next year it'll be cheaper to come to Disney__probably the Cayman Islands too.
building codes....thought Obama and his BFF Christie were going to bypass all that government mumbo-jumbo...after all, these are just beach cottages, not year-round residences....

when folks have been going "down the shore" for their entire lives, nothing will change their minds....
