I wonder if Obama has checked on the folks in NY, NJ and CT today to see how they survived without water, food, power, and shelter.......

5-7" of snow on Staten Island now. No FEMA. No Obama. I guess they're on their own. At least with all the rubble from the destroyed houses they can build fires from the scrap wood to keep warm if they can get it dried out. Sometimes you can use gasoline to help get wet wood burning but there isn't any. GOOD JOB OBAMA!!, you useless, arrogant, incompetent as-hole.
Unless you happen to be in a public building or a public school where you can get in big trouble, say a prayer for these people. Muslims, you can pray to Allah. Ghetto-rats, you can pray to Obama.

At the private air terminal at Logan Airport in Boston early Wednesday, men in unwrinkled suits sank into plush leather chairs as they waited to board Gulfstream jets, trading consolations over Mitt Romney’s loss the day before.

Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, in February. Mr. Adelson, the biggest single donor in political history, supported eight candidates through "super PACs." All of them lost on Tuesday.

“All I can say is the American people have spoken,” said Kenneth Langone, the founder of Home Depot and one of Mr. Romney’s top fund-raisers, briskly plucking off his hat and settling into a couch.

The biggest single donor in political history, the casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, mingled with other Romney backers at a postelection breakfast, fresh off a large gamble gone bad. Of the eight candidates he supported with tens of millions of dollars in contributions to “super PACs,” none were victorious on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Opting for a bold “big tent” strategy to rebuild the party, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, told reporters today,“We need to welcome people who believe in different things than we do, like math and science.”

<quoted text>I did hear some anti-abortionist say something like "even a baby conceived during a rape is a blessing" or something like that. That is a little over the top.
Even though there actually are rape babies who were given up for adoption and grew up to lead very productive lives.

Ethel Waters being one of them.

However, the vast majority of pro lifers believes rape is one of the few exceptions.

Why didn't they get them while they were shooting? The attack went on for hours, and there were troops within a short distance.
"Best solution is close all embassies in middle east close of military bases and GET THE HECK OUT OF THERE FOR GOOD..."
Obama didn't do that either.

In the biggest departure from its previous electoral strategy, Mr. Priebus said, the Republican Party is “even considering trying to appeal to women.”

“I read recently that women are as much as fifty-one per cent of the population,” he said.“That number sounded crazy high to me, but maybe one of our new math Republicans can check on it for us.”

Obscure? They were running for the U.S. Senate!
Did Romney condemn them? No, he endorsed them.
Rape, rape, rape; a word used everyday by one republican or another, the women heard the threats.
You sickos want women to beg and prove that they were raped before getting an abortion! You sickos want to force women to have the rapists baby! You sickos have passed laws in 31 states allowing the rapist to sue for visitation rights!
Go away you mental cases. Thanks to those "obscure" nutcases and their rape threats, the Democrats maintained the majority in the Senate; for that I am greatful.
Lily, Lily, Lily...you can stop with spreading falsehoods now. Your side won.

Romney publicly condemned the remarks made by those two republicans.

He endorsed them BEFORE they made those comments.

What we should really do is get our people out of there and lob a couple of nukes on 'em. They'll shut the hell up then. F'k the civilians. They're all hodgies anyway.
