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

Many people believe that Obama's election in 2008 was the first national disaster. The voters will do something next week: electing Romney, instead of an inexperienced proven incompetent failure.

Smoking Gun proof that Obama and Hillary Clinton are incompetent:
The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.

Give the money directly to the states. There's no reason why the federal government needs to skim off the top. Anything necessary from the federal government can be handled by the Corps of Engineers or Department of Transportation.
FEMA is just one of many, many government institutions that can be eliminated by combining their elements with existing departments with duplicate functions.

Unfortunately, but honestly, if I could be sure that it was the carols, freds, and damnably bad writers of the country that would suffer, I would take a page out of the Grumpy Old Pig debates and say, "Let 'em die." (applause)

perhaps President Romney was correct in urging direct relief instead of sending money to the Red Cross.....

Staten Island Borough President: Don’t Give Money to the Red Cross

At a press conference this morning on Staten Island, a host of local officials, including Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, gathered to highlight the needs of the hard-hit borough in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. And, although many pols spoke, no one was more impassioned than Borough President James Molinaro, who called the Red Cross an “absolute disgrace” and even urged the public to cease giving them contributions.

“Because the devastation in Staten Island, the lack of a response,” Mr. Molinaro said to explain his comment to NBC after the press conference.“You know, I went to a shelter Monday night after the storm. People were coming in with no socks, with no shoes. They were in desperate need. Their housing was destroyed. They were crying. Where was the Red Cross? Isn’t that their function? They collect millions of dollars. Whenever there’s a drive in Staten Island, we give openly and honestly. Where are they? Where are they? I was at the South Shore yesterday, people were buried in their homes. There the dogs are trying to find bodies. The people there, the neighbors who had no electricity, were making soup. Making soup. It’s very emotional because the lack of a response. The lack of a response. They’re supposed to be here….They should be on the front lines fighting, and helping the people.”

Several other local officials agreed with Mr. Molinaro’s rage over Staten Island’s situation, although they did not call out the Red Cross specifically.

“It is as the borough president, Jim Molinaro, said, it’s disgusting, it really is,” State Senator Andy Lanza said, criticizing the city for giving the go-ahead to the New York City Marathon this weekend and the focus on pumping the water out of the East River tunnels.“We’re talking about getting water of the tunnel. Let’s get the water out of the tunnel tomorrow, let’s get the people out of the water today. There’ve been thousands of people who have been displaced. There are people who are cold, who are hungry, who are without a place to go, and looking for warmth. There are people still trapped. Yet we’re talking about marathons and tunnels. I walked on the rooftop of a house yesterday, I stepped on it because the debris that surrounded it was level with the rooftop. That’s what happened here on Staten Island.”

Why more people watch Fox News and no longer trust the legacy in-the-tank media.

For the sixth night in a row, ABC World News, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News refused to give one single second of coverage to a Fox News report that the Obama Administration denied help to those attacked and killed by terrorists at the US consulate in Benghazi on September 11. According to a Media Research Center analysis, ABC, CBS, and NBC have failed to cover this devastating story - not to confirm it, not to knock it down, and never mind do their own investigation. The story broke last Friday, long before Hurricane Sandy swamped the news cycle.

Further, neither The Washington Post nor The New York Times has committed a single inch of their newspapers to a news story about this report.

It was discovered during Clinton's tenure that 2 of every 3 homeless people were Vietnam-era veterans. After this discovery was made, the vital statistic of veteran status ceased to be collected.
The Vietnam-era veteran comprised about 3 percent of the population, and accounted for two thirds of the homeless.

Many people believe you will believe anything a gossip makes believe is true. Why, many people even believe you might even believe Obama.
