But Bloomberg thinks he should be running two giant generaters to run a marathon while NY'ers dumbster dive for food, sleep in their cars waiting to get gas only to find there is none, have no where to sleep at night and if they do there is no electric, no heat, and no hope. Yeah, let's listen to anything that moron would agree with. In the mean time....don't be drinking 32oz sodas...we're trying to save the world here, from business' killing the ozone and fat people!

I read the article you referenced abpve. Loved the last paragraph. How do two politicians flying around in a helicopter getting their pictures taken help people? Where IS FEMA and all that "gubment" help? Some places look just as bad as Katrina did. People waiting to be rescued from high water...now HOW many days after the storm hit? People complaining of no food and the lines for a little bit of gasoline...Exactly what is FEMA's response? Where are their food trucks distributing food and clean water? And Bloomberg...that liberal-minded government control freak...using huge generators to power up tents for a damn marathon when gas stations can't pump gas to people who need it because of no electric.
Sorry...you guys are not looking that great yet either.
Can you answer any of those questions?

The federal government shipped 1 million meals Thursday to New York, where National Guard troops were distributing them to people in need, Cuomo told reporters.
http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/01/us/tropical-wea...

Meanwhile, FEMA and the city were trucking badly needed food, water and hundreds of generators -- donated by the Caterpillar Corp.-- to the hardest hit parts of the island. Free food distribution centers were hastily prepared at two drop off points: Mill Road and New Dorp Lane, and at an empty lot at Yetman Ave. and Hylan Blvd. Food will be handed out again Friday.

Exactly what are you trying to do here? Burst that incredible excitement generated on the left by the helicopter photo ops and resulting articles applauding them?

The new Jobs Report put the nail in the coffin of Romneys failed election attempt. Ohio and Virginia will go Obama. Romneys lies are a futile attempt to mask his losing campaign.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Thursday compared conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh to the rapist character from the movie “Deliverance” who told his male victim to “squeal like a pig.”
Matthews should have pissed down his own leg and squealed while doing it to give an example.

So maybe he should have followed Mitt's lead and kept on with the campaigning/fake can drive.
And then it would have been: why hasn't Obama gone to NJ??
Mitt did exactly what was right for a candidate, money, effort and time. We would have heard ya'll screaming for days had he done anything else. So just what would you have HAD him do? Go ride around in a helicopter before returning to campaigning?

An environmentalist briefly interrupted Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a campaign rally Thursday in Virginia.

The protester shouted “what about climate change, that’s what caused this monster storm” before being drown out by boos from Romney supporters. The unidentified heckler held up a banner that read “End Climate Silence.” He was quickly escorted out of the audience.

As governor of Massachusetts, Romney had worked to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which scientists have pinpointed as a major cause of climate change.

Photo-op with Romney showed him loading diapers. Have yet to find a decent recipe using Pampers.
If you had a baby, I bet you would like to have a bag of diapers, a pair of socks, Food, Gas, Electric, anything they can get will help them out, Romney will be helping some people, I know they appreciate that.

President Obama has already declared New York and New Jersey major disaster areas, an unusually early action reflecting the massive damage wrought by Hurricane Sandy.

Disaster declarations are normally made after post-storm assessments, but officials said the obvious problems justified extraordinary action.

"This was so evident how bad it was that the president said,'let's just get this done,' " said Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, on The Weather Channel.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie requested the speeded-up disaster declarations, officials said.
http://www.usatoday.com/story/theoval/2012/10...

Republicans in the House of Representatives plan to issue a blistering report Wednesday that says the Bush administration delayed the evacuation of thousands of New Orleans residents by failing to act quickly on early reports that the levees had broken during Hurricane Katrina.

....It adds that the White House itself discounted damage reports that later proved true.

Watergate - election year - media silent - prez wins re-election - scandal breaks - impeachment looms - prez takes helicopter ride while waving goodbye ... sounds about the same, huh. We ahould, however, be able to skip the part about re-election if America has learned anything.

Of course nature has always gone through cycles. No one denies it.
The truth is most climatologists agree that man has changed the atmosphere through greenhouse gas emissions & this will change our climate. It is making the Earth warmer & this will bring climate change.
Now you right whiners can run & hide from this all you want. You can continue to make this a political issue instead of a science issue.
Republicans believed in global warming until the Republican Party decided that it would hurt their major donors so they convinced dumbasses like you that global warming doesn't exist.
Mitt Romney will roll back emissions regulations, burn more coal, & allow global warming to continue to increase.
Expect more mega storms & expect the government to spend tens of billions more a year in weather related disaster relief.
When did Republicans get stupid?
Mayor Bloomberg agrees &told Mitt to take his dog & pony show elsewhere.
Oh quit with the bullshit. If man was screwing up the climate don't you think it would have been much worse back in 20's, 30's, and 40'. I mean after all there were no emission controls on anything. most houses burnt wood or coal not only to heat the house but cook and warm water. It is a proven fact that co2 in the atmosphere is going down. It is also a proven fact that the temperature rise is not happening. There is no man made climate change.
