<quoted text> Yea, I'll explain it. You're a damn lie! I live in NJ, half hr from Atlantic City, Ocean City, & about an hr from Wildwood & Cape May. They're all mostly rebuilt & have been for months. My cousin was living in Ocean City when the hurricane hit. It destroyed everything they had. A program through FEMA helped his family find a house in Cape May, & the have him vouchers to re furnish the entire house. A couple of my family members helped clean the shores in FEMA relief. They were told they weren't needed months ago. A friend of mine owns a business moving heavy machinery & renting heavy machinery. He was working on the shoes also in FEMA reconstruction & debris removal. He also hasn't had work with FEMA in months, & they've given all his requirement back. You're a liar, & a liar for no reason! The only people that are disgruntled are those that owned homes, but wastoo cheap to put insurance on the home,(must weren't even living in the homes). They rented beach front hinges during the summer months, but they wanted the govt to reimburse them for their laps in judgment in not insuring the home. The average home owners, renters, residents, that played by the rules have been set straight a long time ago & in most cases, are better off now!

With the economy recovering at a snail's pace and the debt increasing by $6 trillion in just his first term, it was a fluke. Believe me. In a sane and rational world, that is.
We're living in a parallel one presently.
The economy is recovering. You don't know what you're talking about, just parroting rightwing talking points.

why?
She's lying out her azz again__or at least repeating lies found on the yayhoo sites.

Many were second homes and summer rentals. Some cannot be rebuilt under current zoning and building codes, some are locked up in legal battles between owners and insurers and many weren't even insured.

Hope you have your health insurance sewed up before October 1 with no unexpected surprises at the last minute.
It's heeeeeeere....and no one has a clue what to do.
Also, even more will be uninsured because of states opting out.
Now what, Lily?
Why don't you have a clue? The states that have opted out will have the exchanges administered by the federal government.
If anyone remains uninsured, it's the fault of the republicans. Just like everything else.

Oh, my heavens. You actually think Gore would have any idea what to do after 9/11 besides tell everyone to hide under their beds?
Keep your fairy tells and nursery rhymes to yourself, Mother Goose.
Gore would have never ignored the warnings from al-queda like bush did carol, gore didn't ignore the climate change issue a few years ago that slapped republican owned refineries as being responsible for it, you just don't like to admit the miserable failures your party delivers carol.

RealDave that’s the process it was defeated by a Bi-Partisan vote 52/48 if you don’t like the process than change it!!
51 for ending subsidies: 49 Democrats 2 Republicans
47 against ending them: 4 Democrats 45 Republicans

Votes needed to end debate 60. Why 60:? Because Republicans filibustered.

Now you cam pretend that the Democrats did not support ending these subsidies al you want.

But everyone else knows the Republicans basically voted to keep oilfield subsidies.

Local reports from New Jersey shore-town newspapers would agree that those remarks may be true for that person, but they are totally untrue for the vast and overwhelming majority of those taxpayers who have lost or damaged homes throughout the shore area, particularly those in Monmouth and Ocean counties, which were hardest hit. Anyone would be able to find this information by just googling the local newpapers there. Atlantic and Cape May counties suffered much less than the more northern shore areas, which remain devastated and upset with both Christie and Obama.

What Carol said is exactly correct, sleazeball. This is the worst economic recovery in history. More people are on welfare than ever before and the U-6 has never been so high.

You are FOS. Go have another swig, swine.

<quoted text> carol, are you aware that higher taxes specially on the wealthy cut down the deficit? Or you're just ignoring the cards on the table and shooting off blanks? It's time to stop big corporation greed that only affects the middle class and the poor, notice most big corporations support republican candidates who of course support capitalism, if we had a republican president now, the gas price would have been well over 5 dlls. A gallon, sorry carol, i'll stick to what i think is right and read my my poster i.d.
Are you aware clinton slashed capital gains taxes?

It has been reported that Gore lost the last of his remaining credibility when his "light bulbs" in Tennessee became public knowledge, as well as his thoughtful sale of his TV conglomerate to some of our well-known acquaintances.

Myths, lies and complete stupidity.. that's RealDave...
If only President Clinton hadn't signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 and every single democrat said Saddam was an eminent threat and had to be removed three years prior to 9/11...

Lessee... population... maybe... 318,000,000? Of that number... what?... maybe... 20,000,000 Pakis, an' A-rabs, and Israelis, an' red-dots, an' illegals who can't vote anyway... Then reduce the number by.. um.... another 150,000,000 to take into account those too young or too old or too retarded to vote... stop me when I get to about 110,000,000 registered voters - twenty times the gun lobby nonetheless. Don't bother including figures if it figures you can't figure.

Not a landslide when it's only 3 million more votes in a population of over 300 million.
He mostly won the liberal states in the Northwest, the liberal states in the Midwest and the liberal states along the West Coast which happen to have the largest populations.
Florida and a few other states were a fluke but only means the mindset of too many Americans is even more worrisome.
Romney, unfortunately, proved to be the wrong candidate. He let too many golden opportunities slip by.
Obama's "get out the vote campaign" was also three years in the making.
Nevertheless, no landslide. That's much too big of a stretch.
Evidently Crol thinks 5 year olds vote.
