As soon as the electrical workers unions reach an agreement with FEMA they'll start getting the power turned back on. It'll probably only take a week or so.

He was scheduled to appear on The View again but he cancelled because the weather in New York is "too yucky".

I can't wait until Obama's head and entire body sculpture is up there after the other "old white guys" are blown away with dynamite. After all, if the Taliban can blow up thousands of years old Buddha statues in Afghanistan, what is stopping libs from doing the same thing on Mt Rushmore before they put their new Lenin-Ikon in there?
Given enough time ANY public institution in America will turn into a liberal one whether you talk about police, fire brigade, military (the pretty boy command structure), the interstates, the airports or even boy scouts. btw, Fox News is next, so then you libs need to find newfound love there as well.
THIS is what idiot repubs cannot fathom. They live in the laughable belief that if they hand out only 90 % of the welfare the liberals do, in order to fool their own stupid electorate into thinking they are fiscally conservative, it will not make liberals like them any more than the party that pays full rate. As a physician, I am used to getting less than half of what I charge from insurance companies and medicare/medicaid is costing me more than I would have made on them, therefore I opted out of that. You see, nobody is going to vote for the one that gives less goodies out, even if we are talking about a fraction. Soon enough, as the insurance companies will follow medicare rates more closely, get ready for all the "free healthcare" in the world. I say we get a two tier system where the foreign doctors can treat the takers for pennies (better than where they came from anyways), while the majority of our native docs will find ways to get out of the insurance system. There is now way even obama can be creative enough to force a physician to work against his/her will.
Then, on the other hand, liberals would probably PREFER a doctor from Mongolia that can udnerstand what you say to the same extent Obama understands the free market, so maybe this is the best solution.
One "public option" for the takers, entirely subsidiced by makers, but what's new? It is the makers who home school or send people to private schools as well, even if they are forced to pay for a service they don't use. Same thing is likely to happen in healthcare, but we will see boutique docs all over the place that will never step into a hospital even if they had a gun to their head.
Again, congrats to Obama. And I hope to see more gloating from the takers. Keep the spirits high while the sugar level is elevated, because the downer MAY be different than expected. All us evil "rich people" may not want to work as many hours as we do if it means a pay cut per hour (which a tax hike means). Obama definitely is heading for the extreme side of the Laffer curve.
Real rich people aren't paid by the hour, douche.

You should admire Bill O'Reilly. He was a draft-dodger too. He was too much of a "pus*y" to even join the Navy.

As long as nearly half of the country consists of moochers it will continue to be divided.

Doctors need to stop making the moochers feel so welcome. Tell the hypochondriacs there isn't anything wrong with them. Tell them they need to use birth control and that they should be sterilized! Post signs telling them to take over the counter meds for their damn colds and that the hospitals and ER'S are for sick people with valid insurance. The moochers are not welcome!

What did Barry Boy and his mooching no good family do today? Did he do any work at all? What about Joe Biden? What was on the schedule? Why isn't this being reported daily from NOW ON IN THE NEWS!
Every day every station needs to give a complete report to we, the employers about the work accomplished by our employees. We also demand the visitors list of who has been going in and out of our house!
Mooching Marion Robinson you are EVICTED you filthy fat scumbag! Get the hell out now and go back to your home in Chicago you lying bitch! And pay what you owe before you go because you can't be trusted! LYING THIEF! PUTRID UGLY PUG FACED BITCH! Go get Michael Robinson to rent a room to you! He'll give you one of his pitbulls to teach you a good lesson!
Well what do you think they're dong? Obama is on the ground in New Jersey coordinating relief efforts and supervising the placement of the temporary FEMA trailers while at the same time overseeing the restoration of electrical power. Biden is coordinating the relief efforts in New York and distributing the truckloads of donations from around the country. Both men have pledged to work 24/7 until the entire affected area is back to normal. That's what our leaders were elected to do and they are doing a magnificent job!

President Obama addressed that situation early this morning. He said that they've been without power for so long now that they're probably used to it and the heavy snow is keeping the infestation of rats from the flooded subway tunnels at bay so things in the northeast are pretty good right now. Sadly though, he had to cancel today's appearance on The View due to New York's "yucky" weather.

Yesterday my neighbor took her dog to sign up for food stamps. They said he's not eligible. She said, "He's lazy, he's unemployed and he doesn't know who his daddy is." His EBT card should be in the mail by Friday.

Yea, we still have a Rebublican house-hopefully they will be able to control at least some of Obama's spending.
