and it really is monumental.
when you factor in the thousands of families that have been displaced because of damage to public housing, this is going to be a real issue.
.
a lot of people lost EVERYTHING!
over 100 homes in Queens literally burned to the ground, it looks like a war zone, with the only visible structures being chimneys, the houses burned directly to the ground.
.
then there are the people that still don't have power, which means no heat & hot-water, and for some no water at all.
.
.
it'll be a long time before these people are settled, I met a woman here in CT today that lost it all, she and her dog are staying at her cousins house.
she said there was nothing to go back to, so she was considering not going back at all.
so sad.

Romney and Ryan would give these people a voucher. They would gut FEMA and let victims fend for themselves and be further victimized.

Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.

Seriously, can anyone name one good thing this guy's done for America?

I need not explain how he and his corrupt guttertrash Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.

We need real jobs, not McWalmart jobs.

We also don't need the Obama Administration continuing on it's current path to oblivion without having to worry about re-election. This would be dangerous to our constitution's survival and our pocketbooks.

Romney is owned by the same international bankers as Obama destroying America from overseas.

However by hittig the reset button on the corrupt, power crazed, Obama administration it gives more Americans time to wake up to what is presently happening to America.

In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))

Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years and imagine what he can do with 8:

-Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))

-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can now be disappeared without a jury

-Out of control (((Crony Capitalism))) where government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not the free market eg. Solyndra, GM, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters

-(((Skyrocketing Unemployment and Outsourcing)))-The idea that welfare checks/EBT cards are paychecks

-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant

- Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.

-(((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism

-(((Trickle Down Government))) The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way

-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection

- A (((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps

-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans setting up for social conflict right before the 2012 election

-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)

-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional

-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything going forward if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))

-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base

-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation/ monopoly money))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and GAS PRICES (especially for "green gas" in CA)

-(((Needed a tainted Creepy Crawley moderator to hold his hand during the 2nd debate))) who helped him dodge hard questions he couldn't answer -(((weak affirmative action President)))

-(((Benghazi Gate)))???

- My favorite (((Legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not offering immigration reform

- The list goes on.

Is this change you can believe in? Is this what you really want another 4 years of?

As Donald Trump would say: Obama you're fired:



Too bad Ron Paul chickened out.

Wait until they find out that their home insurance does not cover floods. Only those actually in the flood plain have to buy it. Usually half the flooded homes are outside the flood plain, don't know about this one.

It probably got mr bill, I have noticed a lack of too many liberally slanted articles. Just the normal amount of liberally slanted articles.

Obama's too busy playing basketball today to concern himself about TENS of THOUSANDS of people being without a home from the storm.

For that matter, he hadn't much concern for those left homeless due to lack of employment.

Maybe he'll look into it tomorrow.(or maybe not)

Funny7, I live in the storm affected area and obama and Christie have been working together and I have not read one news report about obama playing basketball. mittwit, on the other hand, has tried to politicize the storm relief efforts like the low life filth he is, but then what else can you expect from a cowardly draft dodger!
