So in 2011, it was "yes, give everything back to the states and give them no money for it". Now it's "I love FEMA". When Mitt was governor, he gave a lot of responsibilities back to towns, then cut state aid to cities and towns. Didn't work too well. Won't work at the federal level.
HAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

TheWashingtonPost Romney’s public disservice

As Hurricane Sandy forced evacuations and shut down public transit, New York City bus drivers transported patients to hospitals. Nurses stayed and watched over the sick. First responders marched into danger.

As these public workers were out saving lives, right-wing Republicans like Chris Christie took a break from bashing them. Alas, based on disasters past, we shouldn’t hold our breath for a lasting change of heart.

While political pundits weighed how Mitt Romney could optimize his hurricane optics, a better question got too little play: How can Romney Republicans reconcile their anti-government extremism with reality?

If you haven’t watched the video of Romney’s June 2011 debate comments on FEMA, you should. And so should every undecided or under-inspired voter you know. Asked specifically about FEMA – the federal agency responsible for coordinating disaster response – Romney offered a chilling response:“Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.”

“Every time”? Talk about unhinged ideology.(As Matt Yglesias notes , this is also terrible economics.) So much for “moderate Mitt.”

After moderator John King asked once more if Romney was referring to “disaster relief,” the vulture capitalist doubled down:“We cannot – we cannot afford to do these things without jeopardizing the future for our kids.” That’s right: Mitt Romney claimed with a straight face that deficit reduction requires de-federalizing or privatizing FEMA. And in an e-mail to the Huffington Post Sunday night, the Romney campaign didn’t exactly Etch A Sketch that stance away; instead, a campaign official said states should “have the resources and assistance they need to cope with natural disasters.” On Tuesday, when reporters asked the candidate himself about his stance, he simply ignored them.

Romney is a colostomy bag with ears..

When you have less than a week left and you're behind in 8 of the 12 battleground states, like Romney is, it doesn't help having two major corporations, Chrysler and GM, call you a liar while you pose before news cameras at a campaign event masquerading as a disaster relief effort. Poor, Mitt? Well, there’s always ‘Romney/Pinocchio 2016’!

A very clear statement of the stark choices any civilized society needs to face. One characteristic of right-wingers all over the world is their inability to deal with the world *as it is*, rather than the world as their own pet theories would like it to be. Thus, the general idea of privatizing FEMA is a philosophical discussion for them, but when an actual hurricane sweeps in, they have absolutely nothing useful to say. There's nothing dangerous about "I'm from the government, I'm here to help you", when that's being said by a hero on the end of a line who's about to save your life - for no extra fee!

OBAMA ACCEPTS 'OSAMA BIN LADEN' DONATIONS
.

No block to foreign money – not even from dead terrorists

Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address,

“Osama bin Laden”

has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.

The “Bin Laden” donations, actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”

“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.

Since the “foreign” contribution was sent,“Bin Laden’s” email address has received several solicitations from Obama’s campaign asking for more donations.

Its just too bad people like you will benefit from President Obama's sound un-Romney like fiscal policies even though you do not deserve it.

//////////

Obama's fiscal policies?

//////////
.
.
.

President Obama's budget suffered a second embarrassing defeat Wednesday, when senators voted 99-0 to reject it.

.
.
.

Coupled with the House's rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama's budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year.

.
.
.

Republicans forced the vote by offering the president's plan on the Senate floor.

.

Democrats disputed that it was actually the president's plan, arguing that the slim amendment didn't actually match Mr. Obama's budget document, which ran thousands of pages.

But Republicans said they used all of the president's numbers in the proposal, so it faithfully represented his plan.

.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, even challenged Democrats to point out any errors in the numbers and he would correct them — a challenge no Democrats took up.

.
.

"A stunning development for the president of the United States in his fourth year in office,"

.
.

Mr. Sessions said of the unanimous opposition.

FEMA Must Recoup $643M in Katrina Payouts

The much-maligned U.S. disaster agency FEMA must recoup $643 million it improperly paid to people in compensation following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and other disasters, according to a new report.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) improperly paid 160,000 applicants as a result of inadequate internal controls, human error, mistakes and fraud, the report said.

Katrina devastated the Gulf of Mexico coast, flooded New Orleans and caused more than 1,800 deaths. It also shattered the reputation of FEMA, which was sharply criticized for its response to the disaster, which was viewed as inept.

Why Mitt Romney can’t, won’t and shouldn’t give up on Ohio
Posted by Chris Cillizza on October 31, 2012 at 2:15 pm

The release of new poll numbers this morning that show President Obama not only at 50 percent but also with a five-point edge over Mitt Romney in Ohio has occasioned some chatter that the former Massachusetts governor should forsake the Buckeye State and look elsewhere for the 270 electoral votes he needs to be elected in six days.

The democrats are already up to their usual fraud.

Voting machine swaps Obama for Romney

MARION — Joan Stevens was one of several early voters at the polls on Monday. But when Stevens tried to cast her ballot for president, she noticed a problem.

Upon selecting “Mitt Romney” on the electronic touch screen, Barack Obama’s name lit up.

It took Stevens three tries before her selection was accurately recorded.

“You want to vote for who you want to vote for, and when you can’t it’s irritating,” Stevens said.

Stevens said she alerted Jackie Smith, a board of elections member who was present. Smith declined to comment, but Stevens says she mentioned that the machine had been having problems all day.

Stevens also reported the issue to Sophia Rogers, the director of the board of elections for Marion County.

Rogers said the machine worked fine when she and others tried voting on it. No one else had reported problems with the voting machines malfunctioning.

Rogers suggested the issue may have been caused by not hitting the button directly or tapping with more than one finger. Stevens was aware the machine had to be operated a certain way.

“I know how to do the voting,” Stevens said.

Despite no problems with that particular machine, Rogers decided to take all precautions. She contacted the vendor and had them inspect the device.

“Because of her issue, we had that machine recalibrated,” Rogers said.“I am certain the equipment works properly.”

Rogers said that those still skeptic about using the electronic stations have the option of filling out a paper ballot, even voting from home and mailing via absentee ballot.

Voting in-person is open daily to all voters at 222 West Center Street through Election Day on November 6. All qualified Ohio voters can also submit an absentee ballot by filling out a form found at the Marion elections website at marionelections.com
