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?

(see the difference--many lives SPARED, because people heeded the warnings!!)

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 missed Christie addressing the folks of his state, with immediate plans already in action, didn't you.

That's what GOOD governors do DUH A Vey...not damn and blame the weather on a potus.

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.
Not a big fan of Newts, but sometimes he just nails it.
Like when he faced Mitt and said "you're a liar"
Credit where credit is due. But, as Rachel Maddow suggested; let them think that hurricane Sandy was the reason that the President was re elected. No problem.
In the Wapo poll, people said they'd vote for Hillary by 57%; sounds like an invite to me!
Just watch out for the old girlfriends of Bill to come out of the woodwork again to make a buck.

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!!
Let us know when you get out of the kindergarten whine and blame labelduhm label colorink inside the boxes for Duhmmies only bookuh--and get a clue a bout the REAL world--more specifically-that of how the middle east in places dictated by rogue nutcases like Saddam, can REALLLY be.

Until then--maybe santerbarrakoclaus will brings yew some new fwee phat crayons!!

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!!
Carry on, you're funny!! I expect you to break out in tears any time!!
It's amazing how stupid obama worshippers are. Blacks voted for Obama in the largest percentage of any group...in the mid to high 90%...I wonder why...NOT...LOL. The only tears from me are the laughter that US voters are stupid enough to re-elect the worst president and the most incompetent president since Jimma Carter, and you are one of them. Bwhahahahahahahaha...

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??
So, in the utmost SimplisTIC view of things then--They either HAD WMD's or they DIDN'T.

Would you like another bowl of your OWN DENIAL flakes to swallow blindly?

An American man getting into his truck while holding a gun accidentally shot and killed his seven-year-old son, police said.

The tragedy occurred in East Lackawannock Township, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Saturday.

The father was identified as Joseph Loughrey, 44, and his son, who was shot in the chest, was named Craig, according to a statement from the Pennsylvania State Police.

The father and son were getting back into their truck after visiting a gun store called Twigs Reloading Den.

Loughrey told police he had emptied the magazine of his handgun but did not realize there was still a bullet in the chamber, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported.

WRONG.

DOHA (Reuters)- Arab states agreed to provide the Palestinian Authority with a $100 million monthly "financial safety net" to help President Mahmoud Abbas's government cope with an economic crisis after the United Nations granted de facto statehood to Palestine.

Israel has responded to the November 29 U.N. vote by ordering 3,000 Jewish settler homes be built in the occupied West Bank and announced it would hold back payments of customs duties it collects on behalf of the Palestinians to pay an outstanding electricity bill

LOL! Yes, they were irrelevant in the 2010 mid-term election, when they handed dums the WORST beating in electoral history in the US.

Yes, I'm surprised about how many have fled the thread. Go away for a few days and there are only a handful of pages to catch up.

Much different than when the wingnuts thought Obama would be easily defeated!!

Most wingnuts threw in the towel after the election.

We've still a few who persist in their racist hatred, among them Nobraina and Carol, who are on here all the time, and folks like Emaam, whose job is comic relief as he attempts to spin the election results.

Overall, this thread is dying. And that's a good thing.

Of course, you fail to mention Richard Nixon, the only US President to resign in disgrace, avoiding being impeached.

I believe he was a Republiclown!!

Funny how you nitwits in the minority claim that the majority was wrong. Can you say 'sore loser'??

Proof of your own ignorance and denial.

No cure for that type of ignorance and denial.
