WHERE ARE THE TEMPORARY TRAILERS? WHERE IS FEMA? WHERE IS OBAMA?!?!
Do you suppose the government is checking the calorie content of the food before they deliver it to the starving people? Could explain the delay.

<quoted text>Let's see what's been debunked.
There were cameras on site.
... yes, there were cameras on site and we have video of the Al Qaeda attack from beginning to end of a 7-hour battle. We also have video footage from drones.
... no, there wasn't a "spontaneous" demonstration, like the Obama lie (assuming Obama is actually in charge of anything and the US ambassador to the UN and Secretary of State are speaking what is the consensus authorized by the president to promote) states.
Or, Obama isn't in charge of anything and he doesn't even know what happened there. After all, we know factually that Obama, as a rule, doesn't even attend security briefings. And, we know factually he didn't even attend the security briefing the morning after the attack.
If you're going to attend just one security briefing, shouldn't it be the briefing the morning after the goddam attack?
So, since we know factually Obama was not briefed at the security friefing after the attack, and we have no idea where he was during the attack while everyone was watching it real-time on live video, and he took off to party in Las Vegas the morning after the attack, who told Susan Rice what lie to repeat on all the television networks and at the UN?

And, why in the hell would Hillary Clinton tell Ty Woods' father the maker of a video that didn't even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack would be arrested and prosecuted? For f**k*ng what?

To answer this post, you have to answer two questions?

Who told Susan Rice what lie to repeat?
Why did Hillary Clinton tell Ty Woods' father a maker of a video would be arrested and prosecuted?
Have you ever given us a source for your "inside information?"

After reviewing the matter, the Civil Rights Division determined that the facts did not constitute a prosecutable violation of the criminal statutes. The Department did, however, file a civil action on January 7th, 2009, seeking injunctive and declaratory relief under 11(b) against four defendants.

The Bush DOJ dropped the criminal charges against the Black Panthers. But, but, but, the civil charges! Whatever FOXbots.

Well let's ask Trayvon about that one.
Oh that's right, we can't.


And just why is that OUR fault? You try to make it sound like we all had something to do with some hispanic shooting a black kid. In case you hadn't noticed.....it happens everyday, why is this one so special? Oh, that's right.....the President of the United States decided to stick his nose in it, and yet he didn't find it so important to even think about sticking his nose in or helping in anyway our Ambassador.

We need a President. We don't have one.
I agree. We have one who likes the idea of being president and all the perks that come with it but doesn't have what it takes to actually be one.

He reads briefings instead of attends briefing meetings. He shuts out those who represent half the country on Capital Hill and tells their constituents to get in the back of the bus. He doesn't like answering the hard questions but goes on celebrity talk shows to answer questions about his underwear and favorite Mexican food. He gets in front of a camera at every opportunity and puts his foot in his mouth to create more problems and derisiveness. He won't call terrorism what it is but wants to give terrorists their day in court while accelerating the use of drones that terrorizes innocents. He wants our soldiers to fight an enemy with one hand tied behind their backs. He promises to cut the budget in half by the end of his first term and says he will not run for a second term if he can't live up to his promise.

He simply doesn't know what he's doing. He's in too far over his head, always has been and will be again another four years.

But as long as Valerie Jarrett is giving him his marching orders, he's going to hang in there and continue to be the front man for those behind the scenes who are really in power.

I believe that just as sure as I'm sitting here. I didn't trust this president any further than I could throw him from day one. That hasn't changed one single bit.

Romney/Ryan = Real leadership and solutions.

Obama's Katrina
With temperatures dipping into the 30s overnight and close to 700,000 homes and businesses in New York City, its northern suburbs and Long Island still without electricity [now seven] days after the storm, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned that many homes are becoming uninhabitable and that tens of thousands of people are going to need other places to stay.
Fears of crime, especially at night in darkened neighborhoods, persisted. Officers in the Midland Beach section of Staten Island early Saturday saw a man in a Red Cross jacket checking the front doors of unoccupied houses and arrested him on a burglary charge.
After complaints about people posing as utility workers to gain access to people’s homes, police on Long Island reminded residents that most repair work will be done outside so legitimate workers usually have no need to enter a home.

Who needs electricity anyway? Electricity is over-rated. Coal-fired plants do nothing but destroy the environment and thousands of Americans die from radiation sickness from nuclear plants every year. The Amish have the right idea. Heck, Obama's brother in Kenya doesn't have electricity and he does just fine. I say go back to the days of wood stoves and candlelight. America was a much better, happier place in those days.

Conservatives Are Being Taken For a Ride By Romney, and They Don’t Care

What we do know is that a vote for Romney is a major defeat of populist politics inside the GOP. He is the embodiment of everything that conservative populists claim to dislike about the current political class. Whatever conservative populists have tried to promote in the last twenty or thirty years, Romney has typically been against it before he was for it, and even once he is for the things that some conservative populists want there is no reason to believe that he will do anything to advance their preferred policies. Even now, he is often on the side of those in the Republican Party that wish that conservative populists didn’t exist.

When it comes to photo ID laws, Republicans at least have the outward semblance of an argument: they're trying to prevent voter fraud. There's no evidence of more than a tiny handful of people ever committing the kind of fraud that photo ID would stop, but at least it's an argument. But pair that up with the recent jihad against early voting hours, and even the pretense of an argument goes away. There's nothing these two things have in common except for their unusually negative impact on demographic groups—including blacks, Hispanics, students, and the poor—that tend to vote for Democrats. It's the GOP's last-ditch effort to stave off demographic apocalypse.
Is there any kind of silver lining here? Probably not, but if there is one, it's this: it might backfire. The GOP has been so ravenous in its desire to suppress the vote of groups it doesn't like that it might make them more motivated than ever to vote. We'll see.

If they can get to the polls to vote, they sure as hell could have gotten somewhere and received a picture ID.

How does one exist in this country if you cannot prove your identity, to rent a home, to drive a car, to cash a check, to sign up for "gubment" programs.

Here's a simple thought. When the voter rolls are checked at the polls, the identity of the voter is verified. That way people can't vote for their aunt who passed away, for their neighbor they know will not vote, for someone they paid not to show up at the polls.

What is the problem?????????? And, seriously, why do you feel republications can figure out how to carry ID and democrats cannot. Are you a raaaacist?
