Barack Obama, our next President

Republican wars (Gulf War, War on Terror)
4,976 (as of August, 2010)
Democrat wars (WW I, WW II, Korea, Vietnam)
636,438
Let's reiterate once more:
Democrats killed 636,438 Americans
Republicans killed 4,976 Americans
That makes Democrats 128x bigger warmongers than Republicans.
So the next time a lying lib calls you a warmonger, you can hit them with some REAL facts!
Don't be a fool! You & I both know the 2 parties swapped identities during the civil rights movement so, your numbers are very skewed but, the fact that you tried to pull the wool over my eyes only proves that you know what I'm saying is true! Try again. This time don't go digging in the past or we could wind up talking about how the republicans slaughtered the Indians! It's a slippery slopes!

Name was Ibragim Todashev if you are really interested in learning what happened. Go for it.
The FBI recanted their story that he came after them with a knife. It's that old O'bama saying; they bring a knife--- we bring a gun. We can't have a moslem out there telling the truth about a murder of Jews. What would happen to the Religion of Peace.

Even so...
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin failed to implement an evacuation plan ordering residents to a shelter without any provisions for food, water, security or sanitary conditions.
Nagin delayed an emergency evacuation order which led to hundreds of deaths of people who by that time could not find any way out of the city.
School bus parking lots were full of school buses that Mayor Nagin refused to be used in evacuation.
Local and state governments have the primary responsibility for local disasters including both Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin.
Also, Amtrak ran a special train to move equipment out of the city and had offered to take as many passengers as was room, but the city declined and the train left New Orleans with no passengers on board.
The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service concluded that Blanco did not request assistance with evacuation and that Governor Blanco was reluctant to issue a mandatory evacuation order until President Bush called to personally ask that she give the order. Even then, the mandatory evacuation order was issued by Mayor Nagin.
So even if the funds weren't there and the levees did collapse, the state and local governments failed to save lives that could have been saved and they dropped the ball.
What's even more disturbing is a Representative from the New Orleans area used National Guard resources to check on his own personal belongings and property during the height of the rescue efforts. He used his political position to delay two heavy trucks, a helicopter and several National Guard troops for over an hour to stop at his home and retrieve "a laptop computer, three suitcases, and a box about the size of a small refrigerator".
There you have it. The priority mentaility of a liberal.
lol! As I've said before, Nagin was an idiot.

And he was also a corporate executive. Which shows just how good they REALLY are.

Reminds me of Romney.

Looks like another storm distracted the easily distracted - as MSNBC stated - giving Obama a "break" from the scrutiny.

We wouldn't want him to have to deal with scrutiny.

Just wishful thinking on the part of MSNBC. This isn't going away. Too many democrats are paying attention.

This is just another example of race based voting and the utter confusion and incompetence it leads to (Obama, anyone?). Not only does it speak to the quality of the candidate but also the obstinate gullibility of specific voters.
lol! Nagin was a corporate executive son.

So based on your information, we can extrapolate what a Romney presidency would be like.

Thanks for making the point!

But you do. The Constitution clearly gives Congress the power to give any president military authority in any kind of conflict, war, attack or otherwise.

<quoted text>And this last week of May ,the Northeastern states will be facing its first 90 degree or more heatwave of the 'summer' as southern regions continue heating up-- the hotter weather in the south as it moves northward will clash with the colder , upper level disturbance causing the freak snow-showers(heavy precipitation) and create one of the preconditions for the super-storm tornadoes in the mid-west and prairie regions. What can be more of an example of extreme weather events in climate change?
It's happened before - in the 1950s - before global warming became Al Gore's cash cow.

It's when the Pacific becomes cooler and the Atlantic becomes hotter or vice-versa, but it's a cyclic natural climate pattern.

<quoted text>It's been explained many times before Carol, The Mayor of New Orleans has no authority over the public schools which are governed/owned by the Orleans Parish School Board. As a further complication over half of the students in New Orleans attend charter schools.
As you should know, the hurricane winds and rain were one event and the flooding that occurred when the levees failed another event. The winds began on 8/29 and the flooding continued through the 8/31.
The investigation following Katrina by a nonpartisan commission stated that Nagin failed to employ the school buses and waited too long to order a mandatory evacuation.

Why is it that you excuse Blanco for not following the law and giving permission to allow the federal government to take over in her state until it was too late and give Nagin a pass because of some lame "authority" issue using school buses to save people's lives?

I think people would have forgiven him. Especially all the ones he could have saved.

Clinton left a "projected surplus" and a stain in the White House, nothing more. That being said, your refusal to live in the present indicates you know how serious a threat to this country Obama really is. He has taken a crises, of which he was complicit, and used it in a predictable way. Some of you saw it coming but didn't care, you were blinded by the dark.
Really! Why would I think the 1st black president is a threat? The bigger question is,"why you would think so?

You people are the only people on the planet that believes Clinton getting brains really means something. I'm quite sure you've had yours done a few times also.
