I'll take that bet. He can't afford to lose swing state votes with the polls so close.
How much?

NO! States can take care of their own cleanup! Why make the government bigger, or increase the debt even more.

Long live Ron Paul!

I was glad to see that he is going ask the Federal Goverment to help cover some of the damage, but as soon a Odumo see's it is from Va and a Republican Governor, he will stamp a big old NO WAY IN HELL on that request and laught. But let it be from a democratic governor and state and HELL YES. If the American people dont get Odumo out of the white house in Nov, we all are going to be in trouble. ust saying.. and if you dont like this statement, who cares .

"buyerbeware" thank you for saving me the time and energy of composing a post. At my age I need all of the help I can get

I really wondered why Gov Bobbie had not requested help earlier. But then during an addled ahh=haa moment I remembered "The Administration" waited 3 weeks to get started on earthquake help in Mineral. Bobbie must have waited that period of time on purpose.

Oh wait. King Eric said; "no Federal funds for Mineral without offsets", then sent a letter to FEMA stating funds were found. Three weeks later.

Thanks "buyerbeware". will return the favor soon.
