Hurricane Sandy blows away election ephemera, leaving stark choice | Ana Marie Cox

Oct 29, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Guardian

Some things truly transcend politics: a hurricane emergency is one. But Sandy also asks what kind of leader we really want US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney holds a supporter's baby during a campaign rally at Avon Lake High School in Avon Lake, on Ohio.

If Romney were president today, with the Sandy disaster happening, he would offer no federal help. By his own words, he would leave it to the local authorities, or even worse, the private sector.

With Romonoid, you would have to pay big bucks to be rescued or sheltered during a storm. Money and power rules his cold dead heart. Did he get it from Cheney???

When the Bounty went down off Virginia, Romney and Ryan would have dropped vouchers.

If Romney were President, there would be no Hurricane Sandy. God is punishing America for its stupidity.

Maybe the Bounty is looking for Osama bin Laden for another donation to Obama..........

WASHINGTON – Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address,“Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.

The “Bin Laden” donations, actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”

“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.

THIS PROVES OBAMA IS WILFULLY ACCEPTING FOREIGN DONATIONS ILLEGALLY.

At least Romney was smart enough to lay low and keep his mouth shut this time (darn!).

So a week before the election and Obama demonstrates his leadership once again, and Romney is hiding in some undisclosed location. At least Romney was smart enough to lay low and keep his mouth shut this time (darn!). I was hoping he'd be on tv talking about how he plans to get rid of FEMA and leave these types of things to the states or the private sector......

Obama urges safety during Sandy, says top concern is lives, not election …….too bad he didn’t come to the aid of Ambassador Stevens with the same zest. Obama hasn’t had a formal briefing from all head of departments in six weeks……..he finally does to receive a weather report………….

Professor of Prosperity blogger reports on reported news;

There was Hurricane Sandy that was causing colossal damage far beyond the current Hurricane Sandy in U.S

And the current one is devastating America more.

White-House is the problem and the problem will never be a solution.

Ever head of Schoharie County, NY? Prattsville, NY? Rotterdam, NY? If it wasn't for local authorities, private sector and private citizens, those towns would no longer exist after being gutted by Hurricane Irene. On one road alone in my county, 27 houses were swept away, GONE, completely GONE, nothing but empty cement block basements left behind.

I, as a PRIVATE CITIZEN and PRIVATE DONATOR of MY MONEY AND MY VOLUNTEER TIME, spent WEEKS cleaning up our town and TO THIS DAY, OVER A YEAR LATER, as FEMA Trailers still sit in the Fairgrounds parking lot, uninhabited by anyone because of GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS, my husband is still working on helping rebuild people's homes, VOLUNTEERING his time, his tools and his skills, trying to get them ready so these families can move in before Winter.

So STFU Lawrence. Government can't run anything right, least of all, tending to people who are really in need.

I have seen complete devestation and the results of government red tape after a weather disaster with my own two eyes, in my own home town, so don't bother trying to convince me that the President is our Savior and Government is the answer because you will never succeed.

The same type trailers are sitting in New Orleans also on empty lots, with the government paying $20,000 a month rent for parking the trailers in a flood plane. You tax dollars at work.

Up your snooper, L. No one is against local and private sector help in a disaster. The federal government has an enormous role to play however. During he Bush years that was not noticeable. Obama demonstrates what the federal government can do to help. Just ask Chris Cristie.

I'll ignore your witless insult.

Obama is probably taking off for Vegas today to celebrate another horrible American tragedy like Benghazi with JZ and Beyonce. American tragedy puts Obama in party mode.
