today's heat....

Was it hurricane Sandy that won it for President Obama?

Pollsters who predicted a Romney win have claimed that Sandy was the 'October surprise' that got Obama re-elected. Not so.

The question is whether the polls indicate that Obama gained in the final days. We can figure this out by comparing pre- and post-Sandy pre-election surveys.

Examining the data in that manner finds that the Sandy theory for Obama's rise is fatally flawed. The majority of polls did not show great movement to the president after Sandy.

Maybe that's because both governors of New York and New Jersey prepared and evacuated their citizens. And their citizens were not stranded because of their negligence. And the mayors and governors of those cities and states didn't have any reason to refuse giving the federal government permission to take control to clean up their mistakes.
It's the bigger picture. It's always there.
Carol, always looking to excuse the ineptitude of Bush & the Republicans.

Under Obama, FEMA had assets already in position & ready to go before the storm hit.

Bush was vacationing in Crawford & did a fly by on the way back from delivering a birthday cake to John McCain.

Yep, those two responses are the same.

You're an imbecile.
Carol intentionally posts blatant lies, hoping that noone will call her on them.

It's apparent that hasn't worked out for her, as at least 7 people on this thread call her out for her lies on a regular basis.

Fact is, her lies get far more pushback than ever before.

And her cheerleaders?? Senile Ed and Jump Street Emaam!! With nitwit friends like that, she's in trouble. Neither can compose a coherent sentence. One can't get past the word 'fkn'. LOL

Likely to see another 'I'm leaving Topix forever' from Lorac, as her crude lies are exposed and she's mocked.

At least an armed National Guard didn't have to be called in to restore order and rescue those who surely would have died.

You're an enigma. Always have been, always will be.
Just like every other issue, Carol cannot bring herself to condemn Bush for his actions.

Bush started a war in Iraq -- Carol blames Democrats

Bush crashed the economy -- Carol blames Democrats

Bush admits there were no WMD's in Iraq -- Carol calls Bush a liar and says she believes Iraqi's who were employed by Saddam!!

That's a clinical definition for deep denial, fer sure.

Which is good, because folks like Lorac will continue to drive the Republiclown Party into the gutter of American Politics.

Carol represents all that is wrong with Republiclowns. With folks like her, Hillary is a shoe in in 2016!!

I especially liked it when she said Romney had completely distaned himself from Richard Mourdoch of Indiana.

Unfortunately, it was another of her lies. Romney did a TV ad for Mourdoch, and allowed it to run even after Mourdoch made the dumb rape comments.

But not in Lorac's world of denial.

Gingrinch on Meet the Press saying if the Republiclown Party doesn't change they'll become irrelevant.

Funny, they've been irrelevant for a decade.

Two chances and they couldn't defeat a black man, in spite of calling him every derogatory name in the book and making obscene accusations.

Birther - Big Fail

Socialist - Big Fail

Muslim - Big Fail

Poor Economy - Big Fail

Fact is, most Americans have learned to tune out the racism and hatred offered by the Republiclown Party, which is now a local Party, incapable of winning national elections.

Syria could likely become Obama's Iraq. Have you read the news lately? About Syria's WMDs? The same ones Saddam once had?
What goes around, comes around.
Let's see some proof, Lorac.

For once, try to support your lies with some facts.

Hint - Syria has been a client of Russia since the 1950's.\\

You really dumb enough to think Assad needed Saddams WMD's?? Hell, Assad could have supplied Iraq with WMD's they got from the Russians!!

Of course, the USA under Reagan sold the chemicals to Saddam that he used to gas the Kurds.

But you don't like to talk about that, do you??

It took lots of white folks, hispanics, Asians for Obama to win.

Blacks are only 13% of the population. DUH

Meaning Obama did well among all groups.

You're just a sore loser, still trying to come to terms with Rmoney's historic loss!!

Looks like your creative lies were shut down today.

I think you'll be leaving a lot. Hopefully, it will be for long periods. I'll try to keep you doing housework!! LOL

Your side lost the election. Give it up. The American People have spoken, and they said you're an idiot!!

LOL. Sometimes I think Carol is actually two posters as though her and her husband take turns at the keyboard. Kinda like Fricke and Fracke.

Whatever__this thread is thinning out rapidly, only about five overnight pages down from twenty five pages a while back.

Who?

No one was discussing"people".. .rather instead, the article was about "Issues and events".

But that's okay--some of us understand, for ones like you, with little or no reading comprehension, and/or little or no rational ability in deductive logic, it's hard to disseminate the op eds' of OTHERS writing based on OTHER facts as researched and told to them by OTHER people, beyond those that only exists inside your little, very limited, square box of cluelessness and ignorance.

Carol's the type of person you'd need if you needed a good alibi witness. She's consistent and sticks to her story unwaveringly.

They couldn't pull up the FEMA camp tents and haul them out BEFORE they existed....but they could (and did) ban the kings, pawns and knights from the subways for their own safety.

Duh.

Those who are still suffering lost their homes, jobs or both. It takes a while to rebuild water damaged homes. They're still rebuilding after Isaac along the gulf as well and without having to deal with cold weather and the layers of NY and NJ building codes.
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa t? You concede alll those many structures were not instantly relocatable?
