The "commander" in chief goes to fundraisers while millions are in the dark and cold, and the POTUS who reveals himself to be the head of the party of hate screams for voting "revenge".
Compare Bush and Katrina with Obama and Sandy.
The people on the ground give Obama a failing grade. At least you didn't see Bush spending all his time patting himself on the back for the great job he's doing.

Obama is an arrogant, divisive, self-centered jerk.
He deserves neither respect nor your vote.

Sandy ought to blow the winds of change through new york cities next mayoral election.

Borough President Markowitz’s pleas for National Guard assistance. But they have guns.

“We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup.“The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

Guess those folks in NY don't need any help, they got everything covered.

Can't the republicants wait until after the election before they eat their own alive - ie criticizing Christie for his praise of President Obama?

Making matters worse, an ROmney aide said,“Chris Christie isn’t returning ROmney's calls.” Yes Christie still endorses the etchy sketchy republicant candidate.

“Mitt was trying to explain his position on FEMA to reporters yesterday and he got all excited because his phone started vibrating,” the aide said.“It turned out it was just Ann.”

A comedian could't make this stuff up!

President Obama had one last chance to be Presidential, and he screwed it up. He went to N Y for pictures thinking the locals would handle the problems, and he would look great on his way to somewhere else. Instead the Red cross handed out hot chocolate, and cookies, when what is nee4ded are blamkets, and food,and Bloomy messed up the generator problem. Now he, and the President look worse then Bush at Katrina. It won't cost him N Y. Those people are nuts, but it does make him look silly to the rest of America. I can't believe our long nightmare is nearly over. We can face anything together, but when the politicians divide us, we can't do anything.

BI-partisan LOVE FEST between Chris Christie and Obammy Hussein.

RMONEY in the CAYMAN ISLANDS is NO different from Obammy.

Young Ron Paul supporters express support for Gary Johnson, say Romney, Obama the same

Mitt Romney is just not going to cut it for many of Ron Paul’s devoted legion of young followers.

Most of the Ron Paul supporters approached by Red Alert Politics Friday night at the Liberty Political Action Conference in Chantilly, Va., said they could not see many differences between Romney and President Obama. Their general consensus was that Romney is a weak candidate who has not effectively made his case.

Libertarian candidate Gov. Gary Johnson seemed to be the choice of many. They seemed undeterred by suggestions that a vote for anyone other than Romney equals a vote for Obama as they exited the ballroom where Paul had just finished speaking.

“I’m voting for Gary Johnson because he is a better liberty candidate,” an LPAC attendee from Virginia who declined to give his name said.“I think it’s worth it long-term to continue to break the cycle of voting for people who aren’t pro-liberty.”

Sacramento-Calif.-native Kevin Duewel likewise indicated his excitement about voting for Gary Johnson, saying he was impressed by Johnson’s call during a side event at the Republican National Convention to “vote Libertarian just this once.”

Duewel seemed dissatisfied with the two-party system and expressed a desire to make the Libertarian Party a viable alternative.

“With all respects to Romney, I don’t see Obama as much worse,” Duewel said, noting that Obama and Romney are two sides of the same coin in his opinion.“For one, I don’t think Romney is going to win anyways.

“The energy in his campaign has alienated the Ron Paul folks, which means that I don’t think he’s going to have the momentum or the agility to be able to pull anything off later in this campaign season now that he’s behind in the polls.”

Another attendee from Baltimore, Md. who simply identified himself as Alex said he plans on voting for Gary Johnson because Obama and Romney are “pretty much the same person” in his view.

“I think Romney is very similar to Obama,” he said.“And I think Romney may even expand the wars even further than Obama; he seems very eager to bomb Iran, go into Syria and takedown the terrorists.

“It’s something that I’m not ready to stand for.”

While attendee Kyle Wagner said he plans on writing in Ron Paul as a tribute for his dedication in the race.

“It’s on principle,” Wagner said.“I don’t like the mainstream candidates.

“If Mitt Romney does not win. It’s his problem because he’s not been that attractive of a candidate.”

The general consensus, even among those supporting Romney, was that they were doing so reluctantly.

“The way we have it today is that we have a two-party system, and I look forward to working with the Republican Party and taking over the Republican Party for liberty from within,” Romney voter Jessie Markell said, noting his reluctance in voting for the GOP nominee.

We should all aspire to be billionaires who stash money in secret CAYMAN ISLAND bank account to avoid paying taxes for our military while we declare war on Iran and send US soldiers to their death and while we bail-out banksters for their business failures?

Sounds wrong-headed to me and it undermines the strength of our country and the value of my savings.

Nonsense.

You're wishful thinking. It's a toss up for a reason.

Both Obammy and Rmoney in the Cayman Islands will give us the same crap.

Cast a protest vote to end the two-party system. We only need 5%. Vote for Gary Johnson.

Nope, dearie. Obama drew 28,000 last night in Florida. As usual, you're full of sick sh!t. One of the best things about this election is your departure once your scumbag loses. You are, and always have been, one sorry idiot.
