Federal Disaster Funds for Droughts, Tornadoes, and Hurricane damages like the East coast is seing now- all would lose help from the Federal Government under Mitt Romney- Romney said he would CANCEL Federal Disaster money! Romney wants it in the hands of the private sector (insurance companies) only! Romney's a GOOOOD business man alright$$$!

You lefties sound pretty desperate to not boast about obaama instead of try to make up lies about our new President..

I didnt watch it..I not interested in propaganda from the left..Do you have ANY SHRED OF FACTS from Romney s own site or from Ryans ?? Because your lefty sites are all bullshit and just are there lying to get more followers.
What is important is what the president did in the last four years for Americans and should he be allowed to continue his on the job training program or should we get someone who has actual experience making billions for people and companies in America. Colorado has a worse unemployment percentage so obama didnt do shit for Colorado unless you got some obama handouts..Most others are losing their homes and lost all the equity they planed for .But because obama destroyed the housing market people are losing millions selling their homes for tens of thousands less then what they worth when obama took office...
Who do you suppose obama will blame for the disgraceful job of the last president before him..
You do know obama being elected wont make a difference in my world. I have everything I need..And Im locked in to disability..I can live comfortably and never pay taxes ever again..Its you younger people that could use my taxes..that I dont have to pay ever again unless I work a real part time job..Just the lives of future Americans.

A vote for obama is a vote for corruption.If obama wins then quit your job and work under the table and never pay taxes for the college students or illegals Social sec, disability or welfare..If obama wants to bankrupt America then lets do it..Ill survive an apocalyptic world just fine.. College kids and immigrants and illegal immigrants are tossing away their futures because they voted for obama.

I dont open or read your lefty propaganda garbage.

If you post a link you want me to see then it had better be from a news source..I dont open hardly any links so it had better be real and address the topic and as well you should post a paragraph of it or it wont get opened by me..I have no desire to play the fake link game.

Post something real for a change..

You lefties really must be scared..

When are you going to discuss the last four years and the deficit or how many people are on food stamps or how many illegals per day are applying for obamas "Vote for green cards" program..You just post krap..

The Governor of NY was praising the Federal Response so far in this disaster today.

How about that as something positive about the Obama Administration?

If Bishop Romney were President there would not be a Federal Response.

Romney stands by pledge to shut down FEMA

While millions of Americans are bracing for damage and power outages from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, they should know that this may be the last time they get help from FEMA. Mitt Romney does not support federal aid for disaster relief and wants to get rid of it.

According to Romney, FEMA is not worth spending federal dollars on and it should be cut from the budget.

Would Romney abolish FEMA? His campaign says no

By Holly Bailey, Yahoo! News

Mitt Romney on a conference call with top aides on Monday (Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)DAVENPORT, Iowa—As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast, Mitt Romney's campaign is pushing back against suggestions that he wants to abolish the Federal Emergency Management Agency—insisting that he would simply prefer to see states take a greater role in disaster relief.

At a GOP primary debate in June 2011, Romney, when asked about FEMA's budget woes and how he would deal with it, had said, "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."

During that debate, the moderator, CNN's John King, had gone on to ask if that included "disaster relief." Romney suggested it did.

The Center for American Progress, a liberal group, called attention to Romney's remarks in an email to reporters on Sunday.

Asked for clarification today, Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said the GOP nominee wasn't implying he would get rid of FEMA, but rather that he simply wants states to play a greater role in disaster response.

"Gov. Romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdictions," Henneberg said. "As the first responders, states are in the best position to aid affected individuals and communities, and to direct resources and assistance to where they are needed most. This includes help from the federal government and FEMA."

Romney has proposed a budget that includes across-the-board cuts on federal programs, with the exception of defense and entitlement programs, as a way of curbing the growing federal deficit. But he has not said specifically where those cuts would be. Asked if FEMA's budget could be on the list for potential cuts, Henneberg did not comment.

Romney has publicly supported a House GOP budget bill drafted by his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, that called for greater efficiency in federal disaster relief spending.

The debate over FEMA funding could be revived in coming days amid predictions that Hurricane Sandy could cause massive power outage and damage in its path.

"Christie, a prominent surrogate for GOP candidate Mitt Romney, said Obama had moved quickly to help designate his state a disaster area to better expedite federal assistance.

“The federal government’s response has been great. I was on the phone at midnight again last night with the president, personally, he has expedited the designation of New Jersey as a major disaster area,” said Christie, in an interview with NBC’s “Today.”

“Last night, I was on the phone with FEMA at 2 a.m. this morning to answer the questions they needed answered to get that designation and the president has been outstanding in this. The folks at FEMA,[Administrator] Craig Fugate and his folks have been excellent,” he continued."

A yes or no answer is needed. Classic Mitt Campaigning with no real answers on the tough questions. More of this "I have a plan" but I can't tell you what it is until I win the election crap..lol.

LOL..Yea like waiting for the promises of 4 years ago ???lol It doesnt matter what plan Romney has its still better than the last four years of going down hill.
Obamas only plan was to give out money to black organizations as fast as he could before he gets the boot for fooling you all in to thinking he could be a leader. You all could have picked a better choice for the first black president.You should have picked someone that would have done something for ALL America not just blacks. Obama is not a leader .hes just a speech maker not an actual doer.

Awe, Snipper is upset I used part of his article against him. Maybe you should completely read it before you post it next time..ROFLMAO!!

Going downhill..huh? Housing market prices increasing for months now, unemployment on the way down after over a 10% peak. I'd say things are better than they were, unless you are using GOP math..lol.

The only thing going downhill now are the chances your guy gets elected. Why would anyone HOPE that things get worse just for the benefit of a political party is something I can never understand. You right wingers sit daily just hoping for bad news for America just to benefit Romney's chances of getting elected. I call those folks traitors.

Back to Romney cutting FEMA funding. All it would take to clear up Romney's FEMA comment is a Yes or No answer.

Bishop Romney's camp has never flat out denied they would cut funding for FEMA.

Why didn't you just say, "I hate Obama because he's black"? It would have taken you less time to make your point, and less time for me to read it.

President Obama could have single handedly found the cure for cancer, brought peace to the entire mid-east region, brought unemployment down to 1%, paid off the debt, and put every kid in college free of charge and you righties would still squirm at night knowing that the Obama's could be making whoopie in the Ronald Reagan bedroom.

Fortunately for manking, nature has a way of weeding out people like you over time. Each day more like you go away and are replaced by innocent kids who will not be like you.
