Amazing how Obama goes almost four years without ever reaching across party lines as he promised in his previous campaign, then one week before the election he finally reaches out to Christie and Bloomberg to complete his sole bi-partisan act as president. Great job Mr. President, I am sure your groopies will eat that up. Normal americans will see it for what it is, BS.

Bad enough to make things up out of thin air, at least TRY to make them sound a tiny bit PLAUSIBLE.

How many days will he actually be IN the office if you minus out date nights, golf, comedy shows and vacations?

If Iran launches a nuke, let's see, would your guess be a long vacation in Martha's Vineyard or golf in Hawaii. Vegas is getting a little old.

President Obama will have a second term and you jackass racist liars can all go home to hell, where you belong...
As of Nov 7, nothing you post will mean anything
From that day forward your nothing but second class citizens,,, if we decide to allow you to live in America or at all.....
Nothing could ever be just punishment for your years of hate and lies..But not to worry we'll think of something.
READ IT AND WEEP DUMMIES:
"""Barack Obama, our next President"""
Hell will come home to America if Obama is re-elected. Then all who supported him can spend eternity congratulating each other about how they personally helped to ruin America by voting for four more years of failure and America's tipping point. Forward, right off the cliff.

Homer is a dweeb.

Sorry folks, but I have been wanting to say that for quite some time now. Just could not keep it in any longer.

Anyone else see parallels between hurricane sandy and the election. All said and done, it is time to rebuild NJ from storm devastation and time for Romney to rebuild the country from Obama devastation.

I do remember the ship. It was tied up here for a while. Good idea that didn't work in the real world. History is full of them.

Back to hurricanes ... All those power outages. Could something have been done reduce the damage done to power stations and lines?

Maybe so...

"Long Power Outages During Storms Like Hurricane Sandy Could Be Prevented"

"... Does the restoration of the mid-Atlantic power grid have to take so achingly long? While the utility companies argued that they're working as hard as they possibly can, several experts said that America's power infrastructure could be more resilient -- even when tested by a once-in-a-century storm.

"The message from Sandy is that it has to be stronger," said James Hoecker, a lawyer who led the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission under President Bill Clinton. Experts suggested various adjustments, such as underground cables, smart grid technology and tree trimming to make future outages end sooner.

Designing above-ground power lines to cope with more of a beating, and hardening critical infrastructure, could help. On the distribution side, most telephone poles and wires are not designed to withstand the 90-mile-per-hour winds that swept through New Jersey on Monday. That, said Otto Lynch, the energy representative for the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Committee on America’s Infrastructure, is a mistake. "

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/01/powe...

Hmmm ... Did any of those 800 billion stimulus dollars go towards "hardening critical infrastructure" of the east coast power grid?

Would that have been a wiser investment of tax-payer dollars than loans to "green companies" that eventually went belly-up?

I don't think we have to guess how all those folks sitting in NY and NJ would answer that question.

BTW ... Does anyone know why the Obama administration hasn't released mandatory stimulus reports for over a year?

"Ahead of Election, Obama Stops Releasing ‘Stimulus’ Reports" Oct 19, 2012 •

"The $831,000,000,000 economic “stimulus” that President Obama spearheaded and signed into law requires his administration to release quarterly reports on its effects. But “the most transparent administration in the history of our country” is now four reports behind schedule and has so far not released any reports whatsoever in 2012. Its most recent quarterly report is for the quarter than ended on June 30, 2011.

One wonders how the administration would treat a private citizen who acted like such a scofflaw in response to one of Obama’s principal legislative initiatives. It certainly appears that this administration, which is so very fond of regulating Americans’ lives — witness the 13,000 pages of Obamacare regulations it has already penned — doesn’t hold itself accountable to the same set of rules that it’s so eager to compel the American people to obey."

Way to go!!!! You are admitting that the BULLMANURE you post has little if any effect, 95% of the 600 posters who offer a response laugh at you. If you were honest the real translation would be there are only a few idiots on this thread that buy the crap you so ineffectively try to spew.
