There are still 433,000 homes and businesses without power. Tens of thousands lost everything they had.

The FEMA shelter camp in Oceanport, New Jersey looks like a mini-city. The 40 acres of emergency housing is located in the parking lot of a race track. It's part of the agency's response, along with mobile homes on the way now to areas devastated by Sandy.

FEMA's Gene Romano walked through the camp, complete with hot meals and hot showers. It was build for utility workers a week ago. It now houses 4,000 utility workers, first responders and other people in large heated tends.

"These guys are from Canada," Romano pointed out. "We're processing other people over there."

Two hundred storm victims also live here now. More show up every day.

I'll ask again, how has any of that increased racial tensions?

If you're already a racist, then everything this president does will be about race.

I am not a racist - but I disagree with your statement. One could be a racist and not approve of what he's doing -- what he is doing has nothing to do with his race, it's his ideology and policies that are at issue here, not his color. I disagree with his ideology and policies, and I don't care a whit about his color. He could be white or green or purple and I would still disagree with him. I also disagree with Nancy Pelosi and she's white, I disagree with Biden, and he's white -- I agree with Marco Rubio, and he's latino. I agree with Martin Luther King - it's not about the color of the skin, it's about the content of his character.
See? I'm truly not a racist.
There are those, though, who are racists and disagree with Obama. There are black people who disagreed with George Bush -- does that make them racists too? Did they disagree with him because he is white or because he did things they didn't like?
Your argument doesn't hold water.

What's "he" doing that has you so exercised? What ideology or policy has you disturbed?

Do you see the President's policies as "race based" and divisive? The reality is that he has spoken less about racial issues than any president in the last fifty years. Black Americans have lost more ground than any other group since the Recession began. Do you see some kind of special privileges the President has afforded them that they don't see or that the rest of us are missing? I don't see anything Obama has done to fuel racial divisions. I do see racists who read tea leaves and concoct conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact.

Calling the president a Marxist, a Communist, a Socialist - all intended to disparage a man who is NONE of those things and whose policies have no relationship to the allegations. The man is a Centrist, has been every bit as supportive of business interests as his Republican predecessor was, and has only now moved toward greater efforts to protect and preserve a middle class in America. That he refuses to completely dismantle the social welfare safety net (85% of Social Security recipients are white), should have provided you evidence of his intentions with respect to policy.

The only policy that the extremists point to as justification for allegations about Obama is his intent to expire tax cuts for the wealthiest. Frankly, I have no idea why this is even an issue for anybody posting on these threads that it should so outrage you. It doesn't apply to you, and it's not an increase in the first place. It's the end of a tax CUT they've enjoyed for a very long time and which we can no longer afford - just as we can no longer afford the amount of social welfare we've supplied.

There is more than sufficient evidence that eliminating the Bush cuts will NOT harm jobs creation. So, what is your objection? Unfair? Well, it's been VERY unfair for a long time that the wealthiest should have tax credits and deductions not available to most working Americans and which results in the Mitt Romneys in America paying 13% of their incomes once all the deductions and credits kick in versus 22% for the middle class of theirs'. THAT is what is unfair.
