Teabagger congress hasn't allocated any money for hurricane Sandy in over 65 days.
You don't get out much do you?
Poor teabagger.
The house allocated money for Sandy victims. The senate added funds for Alaskan fishermen. Do you really not see a problem with this?

Most of those were small business owners who would've had to shut down, dopey. They've been saved by the House.
99% of the Bush tax cuts kept in place....this is hilarious. Anti-terror policies, economic policies..obama riding W's coattails like Clinton rode Reagans.
Only 2-3% os small businesses have incomes over $250,000, Blueboy. Maybe those bagpipes are drowning out the news.

Enjoy your government control, I hope you all rot because you're getting EXACTLY what you voted for.

It's been awhile since I heard from a birther nut. So do you wear knucklepadding when you go for a walk? And remember to comb your face. The Flintstones are coming over.

In the days of the Second World War, the Greatest Generation always helped their fellow Americans, on the spot, then and there. There was no question about waiting; there was no delay at all.
This delay in aid shows how far the culture of the United States has fallen since those times. It makes me wonder what happened to our society.
The Teabaggers happened to our society.

Pappa.

What Obama's pal Christie conveniently overlooks is that large numbers of Africans reside in areas hit by Katrina. White "Liberals" chose not to purchase insurance that would have compensated their losses. The Africans are wards of the taxpayer. Why should the overburdened minority of Americans who pay taxes take on the additional heavy burden of caring for White "Liberals"?

You really don't know how your own government works?

Presidential orders cannot allocate money.

They can legislate, not allocate.

Hmmm, when aid was slow to reach Katrina victims, it was all the president's fault.
What changed?
Had Bush pushed for a big disaster relief bill, and Democrats held it up in Congress, I'd have blamed Democrats.

FEMA screwed up in their response to Katrina, though they weren't the only ones who screwed up, of course.

You've already been TOLD that Presidents can't attack things to bills. Now you need to post PROOF that amendments were attached, what they were, and who attached them.

Otherwise, you're blowing smoke.

Feel that leftist love and tolerance!
Those on the left have no reason to love the right; agreed, however, that it was a vicious thing to wish on one's fellow Americans.

Ooooops! You're letting your true feelings slip out.

You truly fantasize about the "New America", with a benevolent dictator who will abolish all religions except his own cult of divinity.

And you ask a Freudian question: "What country do you live in?" Certainly not the Marxist fruitcake paradise that you dream about.

Your dysfunctional Never-neverland never was, and never will be.

How strange! And I thought I was fantasizing about playing shortstop with the New York Mets.

And if I were to let my true feelings slip out, you might stop babbling your Jungian horseshit to me.
