Obama’s Katrina?
If we had a truly objective and unbiased media (I know–stifle those guffaws), we’d surely see some comparisons of the official performance of Obama’s FEMA (reformed, streamlined, and nimble, Obama assured us) with President Bush after Katrina. Bush was pounded nonstop, of course. Obama, Gov. Cuomo, and Mayor Bloomberg–not so much.
FEMA has run out of water in the affected area, and won’t get any more until tomorrow. Instead it is asking for more private sector help, sort of like what that Romney guy has said ought to happen. Staten Island appears a plausible substitute for New Orleans’ now legendary ninth ward. But as Staten Island is the one borough of New York that has a lot of Republicans, it’s okay if they suffer. A similar situation is reported in Far Rockaway beach, where there is apparently looting.

Where do you find these stupid blogs, ya socialist fraud?? This is as bad ad pajamasmedia, your other fav site!! LOL

Let's stick to real pros, eh??

"Hurricane Sandy helped Obama politically, Karl Rove says"

"Hurricane Sandy’s impact on the East Coast this week gave President Obama a political advantage during the final week of the campaign, Republican strategist Karl Rove said in an interview on Friday. "

==========

Gummer the right wing nitwit!! I saw your stupid pleas about defense workers this past week. You're so lame. You suppport union defense workers, yet attack all other union members, like teachers, auto workers, etc. Why are defense workers exempt of your attacks?? Wouldn't be your stupid partisanship and racism, would it?? Of course it is.

Proving you to be a true hypocrite, as you're a union member yourself, still collecting the pension and healthcare your UNION negotiated for you while you attack other union members.

You're in for a big shock on Tuesday when Obama gets reelected.

I'll be here. Bet you won't.

Saying it doesn't make it so....just like Obama saying 4 years ago he was going to be a bipartisan president didn't make it so. Or that he would cut the deficit in half. Or that unemployment would be down to 5%.

See how words don't matter much at this point?>

Barrack Obama is ass backwards. We are behind and he says we are moving forward. Same thing for the next 4 years with Obama. If Obama is re-elected, pat yourself on your backs for not voting for Obama and standing up for what you believe in.

Why did Obama choose to ?stand down? in Benghazi?
[T]he CIA has issued a statement making it clear that ?no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need [in Benghazi]; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.?
That statement surely was issued with the approval, and presumably at the direction, of the CIA?s director, General Petraeus.
Who, then, made the several decisions denying help to the Americans in Benghazi who needed it?
Who, initially, told CIA to ?stand down? in face of the attack?
Who decided that American defense forces an hour or two away in Southern Europe would not be deployed?

My guess would be the same folks whotold George Bush

To stand down on 911 but somehow no one expressed

outraged.why?

He can't. He's already promised Obama that he could be the White House shoeshine boy. Maybe Hillary would like the job.

What's the rush? We're still waiting on Obama's college transcripts and visa info, and he's been president for four years. Just relax, when Obama releases his info maybe you'll get those tax records you're so anxious for.
First it was the BC, now it's college transcripts. You racistw will never give up, which is why 98% of America sees you as nothing but hateful racists.

Ok, nitwit, name the Presidents who have made their college transcripts or visa information public, I dare you.

You won't reply, but the number is ZERO, which is your number, also!!

Sandy And Civil Society

By Rod Dreher

As an Air France manager yesterday tried to help us untangle our flight mess, he said,“I was sorry to hear about what happened with Hurricane Sandy. But you know, I really admire about Americans how you all pull together and help yourselves and each other. Here in France, we would do nothing but stand around and complain.”

Well, not all of us Americans. From the NYT today:

Vikki Quinn, standing amid ruined belongings in front of her flooded house in Long Beach, said she felt lost.“I just keep waiting for someone with a megaphone and a car to just tell us what to do,” she said.

Hank Arkin, 60, a photographer in Merrick, wondered how much of the damage could have been avoided.“I am screaming mad because this is an inhumane way to live in the highest property-taxed area of the entire state,” he said.“They had days of notice before the storm and nothing was done.”

Officials said they were trying to get help where it was needed.“One of the problems is that when you have lots of different agencies, it takes a while for them to get coordinated,” Mr. Bloomberg said at his briefing, adding that he understood how high the tensions were in the Rockaways.“Somebody this morning screamed at me that they could not get coffee,” he said.“Someone else screamed at me that there is nothing there, but one block away, there was a service.”

If you come to depend on the state for everything, and forget how to do for yourselves, and let your relationships with your neighbors deteriorate (or fail to form them), you may find when disaster strikes that you are reduced to sitting there in the ruins waiting for someone from the government to drive through and tell you what to do.

Let me be clear: I’m not mocking this woman from New York, and you shouldn’t either. She’s facing devastation, a kind of devastation for which her culture has not prepared her. I only bring her response up as a cautionary tale.

$5 Million dollars to a charity of obama's choice, a soup kitchen or a storm crisis center to help victims from the storm, if obama releases his sealed records.. How simple is that loser?
-
A sellout obama has spent trillions of of wasted tax dollars to rescue his cronie moneyed Wall Street interests and has left the people of Staten Island and other storm victims to their own devices, cold, hungry dumpster diving and dying..

OWS liberals still waiting in line for their candy and handouts after 4 years of sellout from obama.... AND... More NO votes for obama..
