he wouldnt have to declare an emergency if he had done something to stop the storm in the first place, he saw this coming for weeks and did nothing! now he's trying to cover it up by declaring an emergency?

Do you have multiple personality disorder? You were talking in a different language in another blog. Maybe it's just Romnesia!

We should have just listened to Romney and go to one of our other houses not in the line of Sandy.

Next Obama will declare his own campaign an emergency and will redirect FEMA funds to his headquarters.

Of course he declared a state of emergency for Virginia. He's still trying to buy votes. Make the people feel good and hope to get back some of the votes he has lost.

Or he could just do the same as Romney and lie to voters to get votes. Good way to get some of the votes that you have alienated.
Obama is not making it into a political move. He is doing what he is supposed to do. Should he wait until after the election to get aid to states for recovery?

And Romney is in Ohio helping with storm relief... Ohio??? From what I heard they a dusting of snow.

Romney is the one who wants to eliminate FEMA and give it back to the states, or better yet to some giant conglomerate like Halliburton.

Ummm... No. The Governor declared the state of emergency, the POTUS only authorizes relief funding from FEMA.

Trust me, my intent wasn't comedy.

I hope you people have fun trying to pay back the $30 trillion we will be in debt by 2016.

You do realize that the request was made by McDonnell, right? You'd prefer Obama denied him?

here's what the article stated....Romney did not create this story....

Romney’s comments at the Defiance rally — claiming the company was “thinking of moving all production to China”— was based on an early version of a Bloomberg News story he had read that was subsequently updated. The story, published Oct. 22, was headlined:“Fiat Says Jeep Output May Return to China as Demand Rises.”
