The COASTAL SANDBAR @ sea level areas were SLAMMED.
As in -NOT much for ELEVATION levels on MILES of sandbar land...so respective "distance" from actual "beachside" when referencing properties, is rather IRRELEVANT.
It takes massive amounts of aid to actually clean up and restore from such disasters.
The difference being-cleanup and restoration being HANDLED, not dollars being taken and WASTED on whatever!
A Sandbar is a sandbar-subjected to water inundation-kind of like an ISLAND, duhmmy.
Are you Realllllly, THAT ignorant?
Not to mention that Breezy Point (NY), leveled by fire, was a community of beachfront summer shacks that had been converted to year-round residences without regard to zoning or building codes. No streets between houses, just walkways. No access for fire engines. A disaster waiting to happen.

And the taxpayers will get screwed to rebuild this abortion.

What action(s) of Bush caused you to conclude he was a terrible president?
If you need proof Iraq was connected with terrorists, just search Abu Nidal, just for one example. In that search, you should come across other direct links just by reading what comes up.
Now, stop squirming, boy. Answer the question.

The liberal loons are in a quandary. They have a problem, the can bring up nothing to extol president nobama who has done nothing. Well that is oncorrect, since he took office;
- Food stamp usage has increased by about 15 million
- Household income is down about 5%
- Public debt has increased by about 6 trillion dollars
- nobamakare was enacted which will cost about a trillion dollars over its first 10 years
- Home values are lower and home sales are down
- nearly 4 million more American's are living in poverty
As they have nothing positive to laud nobama for they attack Bush.
Peace

You must be the woman heckler who heckled the President and shouted out that he needs to close Gitmo and let those prisoners on hunger strike go home. Both of you never listened to President Obama say that he was ordering the Justice Department to begin the process of transferring the detained prisoners at Gitmo,provide speedy trials or for those who are innocent or who can not be tried in a court of law , sent to their home country(if its too dangerous for them to return home then to a host country willing to take them.

"...except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia...."

According to the Constitution, in ALL other cases:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

He took an oath to protect the Constitution, which protects the American people.
In that Constitution Obama swore to obey, it states that the ONLY way the government can kill anyone inside the boundary or authority of the Constitution is through due process of law.
The Constitution doesn't mince words in the 5th Amendment. It's very straight-forward. The government cannot kill anyone inside the boundary of authority of the Constitution without due process of law.
Just what don't you understand about that?
And, why did Obama not know that, considering that he pretends to be a constitutional lawyer.

Mr. Portnoy...
I am to the point I now announce myself as an Independent. Speaker Boehner let us down terribly, right when Obama was being hit with the deserved advise "MAN UP". Speaker Boehner went LIMP! When Obama put his arm around the Speaker's neck and then patted him on the leg after their one on one meeting. I felt gut sick...I said to myself "Boehner's caved". And, he had. Its been a down hill slide ever since then. Find that news clip...look at it...you can't miss the shame in Boehner's body language.
I love our country. Obama does not. Its that simple. Please with your contacts help me save our beloved United States of America. I want my country back! The one my Father fought in two wars for! I was raised to respect the President. I no longer can do that in all sincerity. I said The Pledge of Allegiance with hand over heart every school day, and was proud to do it. Its hard to wrap my head around how Obama was re-elected. The MAJORITY for sure did not want HIM! We need to reinstate the moral fiber men like my Father and President Reagan and President Kennedy had.
God is condemning our country now. We don't want a one world Government...we are the USA and we stand tall just as we are if we can get the corruptness out of the White House. We want the UN out of America's business too! How we achieve this without a revolution I don't have the answer. I do know we MUST achieve this to get our country back.
Will I fight for America? Yep! You betcha' I will. The Statue of Liberty is hanging her head in shame. I want her to have her head up and be as proud as the day I saw her coming into the harbor after the Korean conflict. I welled up with pride for my beautiful, proud, brave and free country and I was yet a young girl. Not Political...just had that unfathomable feeling my homeland was a very special place and I was so happy to be home.
Today, my children and g-children don't have that inside them to the degree I did. I wish they had it...but History is being distorted in the classrooms...we've lost the land of the free and the home of the brave without a doubt. They are made to question, and then this MAN in OUR WHITE HOUSE goes around the world apologizing for AMERICA! Excuse me...but he is not proud and Presidential.
He is arrogant and ashamed and has the audacity to lead the world into believing its how we feel. He has NO RIGHT.
He is BAD BAD BAD.
Despicable!
He wants to be a King and have subjects bow to him...He is so in love with himself...and he is a phony and his word is not his bond, no-sirree!! You invited comments, I've made mine sir.
Thank you,

The dominant majority of companies in the country are small business, and you fucking Marxists pretend they don't exist. I guess that fact just doesn't fit into your propaganda.
No, it's not "Marxism" . Moral capitalism is straight out of Republican President Rutherford B. Hayes's Diary: "The progress of society is mainly the improvement in the condition of the workingmen of the world." ["The unrestricted competition so commonly advocated does not leave us the survival of the fittest. The unscrupulous succeed best in accumulating wealth."]["Universal suffrage should rest upon universal education. To this end, liberal and permanent provision should be made for the support of free schools by the State governments, and, if need be, supplemented by legitimate aid from national authority."]["Abolis h plutocracy if you would abolish poverty. As millionaires increase, pauperism grows. The more millionaires, the more paupers."]
