The Superstorm Blows Away Political Pretense And Ideological Nonsense

The Superstorm Blows Away Political Pretense And Ideological Nonsense

The ruin and hardship inflicted by a natural disaster can reveal truths that political propaganda tends to obscure. When Hurricane Sandy destroyed swaths of the Northeast, darkened our largest city, and plunged a huge section of the nation into crisis, the anti-government ideology of the Tea Party Republicans—and of its panderers like Mitt Romney—was exposed as pretense and nonsense.

Suddenly responsible for saving their communities and their people, politicians of every stripe reached out for help from the big Washington government and the liberal Democratic president many of them had previously reviled. They were duly impressed by his alert, active, and concerned response.

None of this should have surprised us. What we learned from Sandy is the same lesson that Katrina ought to have taught us years ago: The right-wing disdain for government can imperil your health, your family’s safety, and your nation’s security.

Yet we clearly needed to learn it all again—and the events of the past few days have been starkly instructive.

At the center of the storm’s aftermath stood New York governor Andrew Cuomo, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, and New Jersey governor Chris Christie, different in political outlook but united in their commitment to provide relief to their communities and in their own need for assistance from the federal government. None of these men is an anti-government ideologue. Surrounded by suffering and wreckage, they looked to Washington because no other power could begin to cope with the boggling problems they confront, both immediately and as they contemplate reconstruction.

The partisan divisions of a national election shouldn’t matter at such a moment, as Christie  observed impatiently when a Fox News anchor suggested that he provide a photo opportunity for Romney in the disaster area. What rightly mattered to the New Jersey governor was President Obama’s focused and intelligent presence—and he didn’t hesitate to praise the Democrat whose leadership he has questioned so often since the Republican convention in August.

Now the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the military services, and all the other powers of government are mobilizing, as they have done so many times before, to bring relief and rebuilding to devastated communities. Having struck the nation’s media and financial center, this storm is more visible than many previous disasters, but the principle always remains the same: America is one nation that lifts up those in pain and in need together.

This catastrophe is different, too, because it occurred during the final days of a presidential election—creating a tricky situation for Romney or any other challenger, to be sure. But after years of encouraging anti-government extremism in order to win his party’s nomination, the Republican candidate finds himself in even greater difficulty.

Brownback ‘Experiment’ Blows Up Laboratory Of Democracy

When Louis Brandeis wrote in 1932 that a “single courageous state may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country,” he was suggesting that state innovations might advance reform on the federal level. The progressive Supreme Court justice surely wasn’t imagining

Borderline Behavior: GOP Demands Action, Blocks Solutions — And Always Complains

    Romney and the Tea Party dominated GOP have no solutions. ” Magic Mitt” is not being honest with the public. Instead he has created “Moderate Mitt”, who will be on center stage until after November 6th, when he will quietly be wrapped up, and put back on the shelf, and “Severely Conservative Mitt” will return in all his glory. Even now, he has refused to answer 13 sepearte questions about turning FEMA over to the states, or worse, privatizing it. Think about it. How can a profit based organization serve the public in an emergency situation?

    Unfortunately, Obama has not taken the time to explain why Romany and the GOP have no solutions for America, how and whay the GOP has created less than half as many jobs as the Democrats, and created 10 trillion dollars in deficits, as well as the Bush II Meltdown. For me, this has been the big disappointment in the Obama Campaign. Obama has to take the time to explain why Romney’s redux of Bush “Trickle Down” economics has not, does not, and will not work. He needs to explain how simply giving more money to Job Creators though more tax cuts, has not worked, and illustrate it with our own economic history. He also needs to demonstrate how reasonable tax increases for these non performing job creators, combined with , with tax credits and deductions for the job creators will result in job creation.

    It is time for Obama to become another “great communicator”.and take the time to explain to the American People what does, and does not work, illustrating the successes and failures from our own economic history, and past administrations.

      You are right, atc333. If Obama has a tragic flaw, it is his inability to state clearly the differences between him and Rmoney. Clinton did this so well at the Democratic convention, and we saw the positive results. Unfortunately, Obama’s indirect and subtle dialogue about the two different ideologies fall deaf on the ears of most American people who do not have the intelligence to “get it.”

      • latebloomingrandma

        If Obama is given a second term, he needs to find someone like Pres. Clinton as the secretary of “explaining stuff.” Quit letting Fox News do the explaining.

        It is not in President Obama’s nature to call someone a bald faced LIAR. He would like to I think but understands how that cuts off the path to dialogue. Better to do like he did in the 2nd debate when he said “proceed Governor” and let Robme call himself a LIAR, which he is.

        • jarheadgene

          Oh Yeah…..YOU NAILED IT! Like Jackie Robinson (baseball legend) took the worst of all the racist crap time and time again he stood tall, as a gentleman and man of honor, President Obama has taken the worst from redneck, racist A$$holes and has stood tall as a gentleman and a man of honor. Oh some of those racist REALLY think they aren’t. But when it really comes down to their soul, they know. All the millionare/billionare Brooks Brothers suits can’t cover the ugliness of those men. And they sometimes take off the suits to appear like everyman but sorry ROMNEY and RYAN you look so out of place in your freshly pressed khakis and $90 button down shirts. YOU cannot hide your hatred. Oh you may love America…..but you hate at least 47% of ALL Americans, probably more.

        • iheardu2

          You are right that this President is respectful. However, we only need to replay the first presidential debate to hear Gov. Romney made a statement to the effect “that he has five boys who try to convince him of things that are not true, but he knows better.” This implied racially motivated statement by Gov. Romney demonstrated in a nasty subtle way that he saw the President as a boy and a liar, and at the same time referred to his boys as “liars”. Clearly, Gov. Romney’s flip-flop positions on healthcare, education, women’s rights, auto recovery, taxes and the economy, and how he would create good paying American jobs could be construed as his practice to continually “re-position lies ” for his own benefit and profit on every issue in his campaign that would affect “We The People”.

      Maybe the ‘failure’ isn’t in Obama. Maybe the failure is in a large number of the American people…who still have residual, hidden, fearful racist attitudes…and aren’t readers or critical thinkers either. I will take Obama’s ‘flaws’ over Bill Clinton’s flaws anyday. I defy anyone to seriously ‘communicate’ to me that this now close horse race… created and promoted for profit (to BE a close, entertaining horse race) by the now completely commercialized and corporate directed audio-video “4th Estate”…would be anywhere nearly this close…if Obama were a southern white guy like Bill Clinton. We don’t have ‘bimbo eruptions’ with Obama…like we did with a ‘Married with Children’ guy like Clinton. That blue dress, as much as anything else, is what threw the 2000 election into being so close and ‘tweakable’ by Republican cheaters…and costing Gore what should have been a cake walk…not much affected by or subject to minor manipulation. That blue dress got the Bible-thumping, pre-Teabaggers all morally outraged and ‘family-values’ obsessed. And motivated to vote for a born-again moron like ‘W’. And his Republican neo-con crooks were part of that ‘package’…

      And speaking of Republican packages…that is all Ronald Reagan was. The ‘great communicator’ was a Hollywood grade B movie actor…and corporate shill for GE…He was an FDR Democrat who swapped horses to become a Republican conservative spokesperson and ‘great communicator’…when it looked like the liberal wing of his FDR Democrat Party was finally gonna get serious about protecting Civil Rights for ALL Americans. Not just the white ones.

      Obama is trying to be the President of ALL Americans. Against stiff obstruction and resistance from ALL of the Republican Party. And it’s 24/7 cable media propaganda outlet ‘Faux’ News…And now ‘Fox Lite’…CNN. Let Obama be Obama…NOT Reagan. The American people need to pay more attention. And quit looking to be spoon fed infotainment.

            ALLLLL you LIBS ARE PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Instead of obama protecting this great nation and informing the American people of this act of war, he lied and blamed America and our most basic freedom — freedom of speech.

            There was no anti-freedom of speech protest at the Libyan consulate as obama and his quislings (Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Jay Carney, Joe Biden et al) have told us so many times.

            The obama administration spent $75,000 on ads apologizing for our free speech rights in, of all places, Pakistan.

            obama is not merely a bad president, he is at war with the American people:
            The Post-American Presidency:

            The obama Administration’s War on America

            “Benghazi Attack Was Botched Kidnapping To Trade Blind Sheik”

            The attack of the Libyan consulate was tied neither to a video or terrorism, but a botched kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens.

            That Barack HUSSEIN obama had arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood to kidnap the Ambassador, and through obama’s supposed affinity with the Muslim world, obama would save the day and get the ambassador released.

            But the Muslim Brotherhood wanted something in return.
            Their beloved Blind Sheik.

            Unbelievable?

            Western Journalism broke the news that a source connected to the White House has stated that the murder of Stevens and the other Americans was a botched kidnapping linked to one Barack HUSSEIN obama.

        Very well said. I once listened to a radio broadcast on the internet of Reagan stumping for Harry Truman in 1948. You couldn’t believe the speech he gave. He talked passionately about the disconnect between worker’s wages and rising corporate profits and how workers were getting the shaft. What on earth happened? I think you must be right. His conversion had to be over civil rights in the 60′s. Can’t think of what else it would have been.

So many praise Reagan’s rebound from a far, far easier situation; but they fail to mention the Dem support of his 13 Tax Increases (not Credits to the rich, but Increases)! C’mon is right, get some air as your head is in the wrong place.

            Who is drinking the kool-aid? Obama was handed a dying economy thanks to W. He is getting the economy moving forward, jobs are beening created (though many more are still needed), the stock market indices have all climbed near or above 100% since Obama took office and saved 2 of the big 3 car companies. Now with Hurricaine Sandy Obama did what a true American president does for the people of an American state and works with a Governor of an American state to help the people of NJ get help where it is needed. He didn’t stage a photo op like Romney where he had to buy $5,000 worth of goods to make it look like he actually was doing somehting. Keep drinking your right wing kool-aid and stay inside your right wing (don’t let any facts in) bubble.

            The only Presidents who had a tougher economy than Obama were Hoover, FDR and George Washington. Hoover made it worse, it took FDR many years and Washington had Hamilton.

            “None have been so poorly as this one?” Obviously, you have a very short memory! How about GWB II ? he and the GOP created our economic meltdown. He created few private sector jobs than Obama in his 8 years in office, and he created massive deficits, and redistributed massive amounts of wealth to the top 2% with his failed “tax cuts for job creators, exactly what “Magic Mitt” wants to do all over again. Perhaps, had the Tea Party in Congress actually worked with Obama and passed some of his legislative programs, rather that block and stall, but then the Right wing knew that voters such as you would ignore the obvious reasons why the economy has stalled for the past 2 years, thanks to the GOP, all in the malicious hope that keeping America suffering will create a win for the GOP in November 2012. Party first, lies first, People last. Now we have “Moderate Mitt” for just a few more days, as he distorts his views and agendas, attempting to appeal to the moderates, yet all he has to offer is more GWB II failed economic policies., more GOP Socialism, redistributing more and more wealth to the top 2%.

            Strange, the real job creators have been the Democrats, over twice as many jobs created in 24 years in office as the GOP did in 28, with three GOP Administrations hawking their tax cuts for job creators, Guess it does not work!. Kinda blows your and Romney’s theories to shreds.

It was, they did, but the President prevailed, if 2days jobs report and new car sales for October are any indication & that the previous jobs numbers were VERY accurate as well!

        Dribble. Interesting how your Reagan resume only includes his history before he was president– before he went on to greatness. I would suggest that if you used the same bias on describing your Mesiah, Emperor Obama, you would see a meek drug addicted loser with bad grades and a lover of Communism and redistribution of wealth socialism. A man whose profession was to staple get-out-the-black-vote posters to telephone poles in Chicago. Additionally, Barry went on to become the most divisive polititian in history — dividing dems from republicans, rich from poor, black and white and union versus non union.

And I would rather have a community organizer for president than a community destroyer like Romney.

          The history after he became president? He added $4T in national debt to $400B he inherited from Carter, got 241 marines killed before running away from Lebanon, paid the Ayatola to let our folks go, illegally sold weapons to the Contras to get the money to pay the Ayatolla so he wouldn’t have to go to Congress.

        What I don’t get is why CNN has gone the Fox Lite route. Whether I understand it or not, the station’s right turn is unmistakable. For example, today CNN chose to quote all of Mayor Bloomberg’s cautionary rhetoric critical of the Obama administration, before reporting his endorsement of Barack Obama for president, as if it were just an afterthought. Speaking at a news conference in the video portion, Mayor Bloomberg looked to be at his wits’ end, shaken to his core, like Jonah spit out of the belly of the whale. I think Wolf Blitzer was kind of embarrassed to have to read copy that cheapened the mayor’s grand gesture and his genuine horror at the destruction from Hurricane Sandy.

        Erin Burnett, on the other hand, seems happy as a lark with the new CNN. Her huffiness over affronts to Republican sensibilities is a little too eager. Her flimsy coverage of a possible Al Quaeda build-up in Mali suffered from her smugness about how damaging this development could be to the Democratic claim to have decimated Al Quaeda. In posturing for the right, she glosses over the misery this development means for many, many people. She’s developed the Republican bad habit of substituting indignation or righteousness for the kind of factual content that would render a story convincing on its own merits.

        The only hope for the “4th estate” is the ease and speed with which writers and producers can find information and “publish” it. If corporate media collaborate, independent journalists form the American equivalent of the French Resistance. As for the xenophobic bent of the Republican party and the many racists within our borders, I count on the slow progress of natural selection and the faster stirring of the melting pot to render us finally . . . all . . . golden.

        Frankly, Blake, I never gave two craps in a toilet about Bill Clinton’s marital infidelity. It’s nobody’s business. To me, that issuewas/is between Bill, Hillary and his God and/or conscience. It has NOTHING to do with the type of leader he was- and he was superb at being Commander and Chief.

        Barrack Obama is just as competent, if not more. He is extremely adept at foreign policy and relations. He’s tough but willing to be a savvy diplomat as well. Having said all that, too many Americans still have the believe that- at the end of the day- if aint white, it aint right. I remember the day after the elections in 2008. I remember telling my husband, “Oh my God…if Obama can’t fix this mess in 4 years- an impossible task- they (republicans/teabaggers) will skewer him as an inept leader. All of the racial innuendos and questioning the very legitimacy of Obama’s existence is proof that our country hasn’t grown out of it’s racist ways. I voted for Obama in both elections- 2008 and again just last week.

        And I completely agree with you about Reagan. He was no more than a “C” average college student and B-movie actor. It wasn’t until he made some money on his crappy films that he switched from being a democrat to a republican. The fact that people think he was a “Great American President” is beyond me. He chastized Jimmy Carter in his effort to rescue or hostages in Iran. Yes, Carter’s mission failed but it was an honorable. Reagan traded arms for hostages and did all kinds of dirty dealing with foreign powers. In the end, I only regard Reagan as a puppet for his calculating and divisive adminstration.

      • rustacus21

        In waiting for American’s to ‘catch up’ to reality, I commend U (BlakeF.) on making the crystal clear case that voter desertion of the President in 2010 is the reason the recovery was so feeble – w/only the President & a 1/2 of a Congress fighting for a coherent, comprehensive recovery – that was fought AGAINST by T-party crackpots & conservative crazies!!! Now that we see this for what it truly is, lets allow our votes to do the work it should have in 2010 & deliver not only a re-election victory for the President, but a Liberal/Progressive Congress that will responsible oversee the recovery that resembles the world that would have continued at the end of the Clinton administration, when a ‘slight’ recession was turned into a full-out DEPRESSION by the 2001-2009 conservative incompetents hand-picked by a Supreme Court majority. See, WE THE PEOPLE actually DO know BEST!!! Lets prove it by re-electing President Obama & giving him the Liberal/Progressive Congressional majority he & we ALL deserve!!!

      I second that! It is also time that the average American be enlightened about the tax code and how it relates to small business. For Example: If a small business operator starts out with one “hot dog” stand, he can operate for a while under “individual” income tax rates either as a sole proprietor, or using a “pass through” tax entity, such as an LLC. His modest income at this point can only be taxed so much. Once this small business operator’s business has grown, however, to the point where he has corporate level income… he should “incorporate” and run his “small business” as a “C-Corporation” so as to shelter himself from paying the individual tax rate on corporate level earnings. He can pay himself an adequate salary at this point, and he can take advantage of 1,001 “expense deductions” including “healthcare,” that are deductible from corporate earnings… leaving more of his “paycheck” for his pocket. I never hear anyone explain this. Instead they allow the fiction of “taxing small businesses” to perpetuate, leaving a false impression about the effects of reverting back to Clinton-era tax rates. When the small business owner complains that his taxes will increase… simply tell him… “No they wont! Not if you operate as a C-Corporation!” Of course the small business owner will have to educate himself about the corporation, as he should.

    If we can ever get out of Afghanistan, we can start chipping away at the deficit. However, Romney is a Hawk so we will probably find ourselves in more and more conflagrations. OH, for the years when there were no wars under Clinton and we actually had a fund balance surplus. That money should have gone to bolster Social Security but the Republican Congress thought otherwise.
    I cannot imagine the states, already strapped for money, some close to bancruptcy, handling these mass operations although they too, should have an emergency fund, which they do. But the PRIVATE SECTOR? That means each and every person who need help of any kind would have to pay for it just when they’s lost everything.

      Have you heard about YOUR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA??

      Instead of obama protecting this great nation and informing the American people of this act of war, he lied and blamed America and our most basic freedom — freedom of speech.

      There was no anti-freedom of speech protest at the Libyan consulate as obama and his quislings (Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Jay Carney, Joe Biden et al) have told us so many times. The obama administration spent $75,000 on ads apologizing for our free speech rights in, of all places, Pakistan.

      obama is not merely a bad president,
      he is at war with the American people:
      The Post-American Presidency:

      The obama Administration’s War on America

      “Benghazi Attack Was Botched Kidnapping To Trade Blind Sheik”
      The attack of the Libyan consulate was tied neither to a video or terrorism, but a botched kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens.

      That Barack HUSSEIN obama had arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood to kidnap the Ambassador, and through obama’s supposed affinity with the Muslim world, obama would save the day and get the ambassador released.

      But the Muslim Brotherhood wanted something in return.
      Their beloved Blind Sheik.

      Unbelievable?

      Western Journalism broke the news that a source connected to the White House has stated that the murder of Stevens and the other Americans was a botched kidnapping linked to one Barack HUSSEIN obama.

      Obama lied, Americans died: Libyan Attack was botched kidnapping to trade WTC bombing Blind Sheikh

    Willard’s position changes daily. Tomorrow he might have a clue. I doubt it, but let’s be positive. Obama 2012

  • devilindetail

    Obama steers the ship well, but does not explain where we are headed all that well. This is why you have groups like Faux News telling their viewers –he’s steering us into an iceberg (death panels, socialism, Sharia law, worst president ever, leading from behind, etc). I think the electorate understands the basic difference between Obama and Romney more from actions like these, than all those speeches by Mitt about how moderate and compassionate he is. Moderate now, less compassionate when it comes to how he will deal with fiscal issues and the middle class once in office.

  • a80a

    Romney is as phoney as a 3 dollar bill if he wants to get some attention to his activities he should roll up his pants , get into the dirty water,mud,garbbage and other crap and lend a helping to the needy people whose votes he thinks he so richly deserves. this kind of work is beneath his dignity I am sure.
    A drop of his sweat would probably cure a snake bite, it is so rare.

      I saw on a program last night that showed the food items he was picking up for the Red Cross was actually bought from Wal-Mart by his campaign workers and given to the people as they came in the door so each person could have something to hand him. Great photo moment!

      • johninPCFL

        Go to the Red Cross website and it specifically says NOT to donate food items. They can’t be validated and cost money to transport. Imagine the harm a terrorist could inflict just by bringing poisoned food to Romney’s ill-disguised campaign rally? Imagine the good that could have been done had he simply set up donation booths for Catholic Charities and others at his campaign rally?

        Of course, that would have ruined the photo-ops…

    Romney is a businessman, specifically an private equities man. He knows nothing about jobs, except when it costs the business. Workers–union & non-union–are just cost to him. He doesn’t know them outside of the balance sheet.

    Unfortunately, he and many Republicans honestly, believes this is how you run the government. He and many of his fellow Republicans don’t understand or remember the phrase “the common good,” which is in the body of the Constitution. As for FEMA, some Republicans, including Lindsey Graham among others, just yesterday slammed FEMA and said we can’t afford FEMA to help out with Sandy’s destruction.

    If “we the people” (all of us) who are the reason government exists and it can’t help during this diaster, if it can protect our economic system, if it can’t help rebuild our inferstructure, than why does it exist? As Governor Cumo said–I’m paraphasing–whether you believe in global warming isn’t the debate, but that these once in a lifetime storms, these 100 yr storms that are now yearly are and we need to fix our inferstructure to deal with this new reality.

  • Pi_Boson

    Myth Romney wants to turn emergency relief to private sector so the top 5% can prey on others when they are most vulnerable. Romney wants the “President” title but none of the responsibilities. Myth Romney feels he is entitled to the White House but wants to eliminate entitlement support to so many that really need help. Myth Romney wants to re-invigorate all the policies that enabled or created the bad economic realities we are recovering from while he struggles to decide which house he wants to claim for residency to get optimal tax benefit. What happened to Myth Romney coming clean with we the people and showing his tax returns!?! WTF is wrong with people that they believe Myth Romney is the answer? Too many bigots?

    Romney/Ryan are a GRAVE DANGER to the United States of America and our Democracy!

SADDER STILL the REPUBLICANS CAUSED the Great Recession of 2008!

  • TheOldNorthChurch

    The storm did not do anything to dispel the true role of the Federal Government. It remains limited to those functions that help the States perform the in times when a coordinated effort is needed. The key words are General Welfare – not specific welfare. In this role Obama performed well. It required the skills of a community organizer.

    In the area of the economy Obama has no skills. In the area of transparency he can not perform because it is not in his nature. Put him in charge of FEMA, it is an appropriate position for his skill level.

    The federal Government has failed on the “War on Poverty”. It now spends $60,000 per individual it is trying to help. It has failed on the economy. It has only added 1.9 million jobs since the recession ended in 2009. This is a failure. We are now seeing stagflation. Housing prices are rising as earnings are dropping. This is due to QE 1, 2 & 3. The Federal Reserve is failing. Congress, the Senate, the President, have lost the “Consent” of the American People to govern,

    Lesson 1 – Government is best when it is close to the people. Federal Government is best when it governs least. “Coordinating” disaster relief is good. Running all aspects of it would be a disaster.

      Instead of obama protecting this great nation and informing the American people of this act of war, he lied and blamed America and our most basic freedom — freedom of speech. There was no anti-freedom of speech protest at the Libyan consulate as obama and his quislings (Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Jay Carney, Joe Biden et al) have told us so many times. The obama administration spent $75,000 on ads apologizing for our free speech rights in, of all places, Pakistan.
      obama is not merely a bad president, he is at war with the American people: The Post-American Presidency: The obama Administration’s War on America
      “Benghazi Attack Was Botched Kidnapping To Trade Blind Sheik”
      The attack of the Libyan consulate was tied neither to a video or terrorism, but a botched kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens.
      That Barack HUSSEIN obama had arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood to kidnap the Ambassador, and through obama’s supposed affinity with the Muslim world, obama would save the day and get the ambassador released.
      But the Muslim Brotherhood wanted something in return.
      Their beloved Blind Sheik.
      Unbelievable?
      Western Journalism broke the news that a source connected to the White House has stated that the murder of Stevens and the other Americans was a botched kidnapping linked to one Barack HUSSEIN obama.

      Obama lied, Americans died: Libyan Attack was botched kidnapping to trade WTC bombing Blind Sheikh

        • ALLLLAMERICAN

          You NEED to find out the facts!!!!!!!

          Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same GAY bath house in uptown Chicago, according to sources in Chicago’s gay community

          Jeremiah Wright, the pastor of Obama’s former church of 20 years, matchmaking service for gay —

          the matchmaking club was called the ‘Down Low Club’
          Donald Young, an openly gay man who reportedly had a SEXUAL RELATIONS with Obama.
          Two other gay members of the church were Larry Bland and Nate Spencer.
          Young and Bland were brutally MURDERED, execution style, in late 2007.
          Bland was murdered on November 17, 2007 and
          Young on December 24, 2007. The latter was killed by multiple gunshot wounds. Spencer reportedly died on December 26, 2007, official cause of death:
          The church’s choir director Donald Young was murdered on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2007, at the begining of the presidential campaign.
          Larry Sinclair, the gay man who claimed to have had two sexual encounters with Obama in Chicago in 1999, wrote a book,
          “Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder,” in which he states that Obama was linked to Young’s murder.
          Sinclair wrote that he was in contact with Young shortly before his murder and Young revealed his relationship with Obama.

            You had just got off your rant about Obama being a Muslim and now you have told us all that Obama’s PASTOR.. the Pastor of his CHURCH…

            So, by your own statements Obama’s a Christian.. Now we have that settled, lets move to your next lie… Is Obama a Communist, a Socialist, or a Capitalist??

            I’ll give you a hint. Capitalists give money from the people TO Business. Socialists TAKE money from business and give it to the people. Obama gave YOUR money to Banks, YOUR money to GM.. Makes him the ULTIMATE Capitalist by definition.

            Oh and another thing; under Obama the rich are paying the LOWEST TAXES IN 50+ YEARS! So that proves that Reagan and Bush took more money from the rich and gave it to the poor than Obama has. That makes Reagan and Bush both Socialists by your warped definition.

    Dear would-be Veep Ryan: tell me again how the Catholic Church’s doctrine of ‘subsidiarity’ means that clean-up, repair and reconstruction of New York’s and New Jersey’s coastlines and coast communities is entirely up to those cities and counties and their resources.

    If you still believe that, dear sir, let me say you are in that regard horribly wrong. Subsidiarity combines the notion of familiarity with the problem (implying more local response) with ability to respond (in this case implying the feds) with the symbol of that truth being Gov. Christie and Pres. Obama working together cheerfully.

  • peteserb

    This is a typical leftist article. Attempting to scare the public into beleiving only government can take care of you. Any independent American knows this is BS. I only pray that the government of Obama won’t take care of me the way he did the patriots in Bengazhi. He sat there watched them under attack and did nothing. Not unlike the attack by the muslim extremist in Fort Hood, that he labeled work place violence. Un fortunately we will probably have this thug for four more years. I’m fortunate enough to have worked and planned for my retirement. You moochers will get nothing when the nation goes broke.

You’ll see that the vast majority of posters here, including ALL of the those that write for The Memo, are nothing more than leftist freaks and useful idiots who have drank the Obozo Kool Aid thinking it sweet and never realizing that he’s pissing in their mouths. Not all of them are fools, but the vast majority of them are fools.

      Gotta love how most of these idiots are oblivious to the fact that Obozo watched as our heros were under attack in Benghazi, and he did nothing to help them. He let them die, then he lied about it for a month saying the attack was caused by a spontaneous protest because of a 2-bit YouTube trailer. They cannot accept the fact that their messiah, Obozo, is an incompetent coward.

      Keep fighting the good fight.

    If the Federal govt. turned all of the responsibility over to the states (FEMA being one of many) as Romney and Ryan and other Republicans suggested trust me NY, NJ and other states that were affected by Sandy – would not have progressed as much as it has.
    God, only know what state these States would be in.

    I saw Romney and Ryan on the news calling themselves helping out those that were affected by Storm Sandy – they really looked like two fish out of water.
    This didn’t stop Romney and Ryan from getting in that photo op – so sad campaigning on the misfortune of others.

    I heard the Red Cross told them it would be better if donations and blood would be given.

  • ryueire

    Romney refused to divulge his tax history, while attacking other candidates to release theirs in primaries. Divulging at least 10 yrs tax returns was a practice his own father initiated. He was for/against you name it any politically expedient stance that would further his agenda. He lied about the auto bailout and companies relocating to China, as he had previously invested in companies that outsourced to China; so he figured everyone does it. He has no plan to pay down the deficit. He cannot prove how he “will provide 12 million jobs”. He will/won’t/ revoke Roe vs. Wade, has flip-flopped re Obamacare, Medicaid, Social Security, FEMA. He won’t elaborate on what deductions he would take an axe to to pay for his “revenue neutral” tax cuts. He doesn’t have an answer as to why/how he can pay for 2 trillion more in defense spending. And in the last few weeks of the campaign, running behind and out of ideas, he did manage to catch the President off guard in the first debate… by lying and taking stances that agreed with the President; although he would do them “better” without elaborating how. He is a business man, and claims to know how to run the country because of this acumen. And how many successful businesses succeed by espousing principles of honesty, compassion, and equity above serving the needs of “the bottom line”?
    As a Presidential candidate? Unqualified. As an example of honesty? Shameless. As a solution to the economic woes of America? Examination shows his beliefs/advisors reflect the concepts that created the problem.

    As for his extreme makeover to become moderate-seeming: Romney saying “I love teachers, I empathise with the middle class, I know how to get America back on track” do not make facts or achievable promises, or reflect honest intent.

    And the latest Romney auto ad against Obama: a stone cold lie that has gotten negative results, the auto manufacturers are debunking Romney.
    Desperation? Stupidity? Arrogance that just muddying the facts will get them votes from uninformed undecided voters? Any way one looks at it, a sane voter should see through the bullshit.

  • ObozoMustGo

    Joe Conason, head useful idiot at The Memo, once again attempts to distract away from the failure that is Obozo.

    This crap is just slight of hand employed by the useful idiots at The Memo and the Obozo campaign propaganda machine called “the media”. All of this is designed to take our focus off of the failure of Obozo. Obozo the utter Failure-in-Chief who cannot talk about his record so the useful idiots at The Memo try to distract us from what is really important in this election year… Obozo’s record of failure.

    BH Obozo has had a sum total of 1 (one) success. Ordering the killing of OBL. That’s it. There is nothing else in 4 years. Nothing. And even that isnt really as big a deal for him as it is for the soldiers who actually did the mission. But the narcissist-in-chief is always quick to claim credit for himself.

    Lets take a look at some of Obozo’s other “successes and accomplishments”…….

    1) Obozo comes into office $10T in debt. 3.5 years later, $16T in debt
    1A) Obozo is first President in American history to be so fiscally irresponsible that he and his DemocRAT Congress caused US Credit Rating to be cut. Nice accomplishment Mr. Obozo!!! This has now happened twice. America’s credit rating has been downgraded again. Very nice accomplishment Mr. Obozo.
    1B) OBOZO HAS PRESIDED OVER AND DIRECTLY CAUSED, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, CANADIANS ARE NOW RICHER THAN AMERICANS.
    1C) Median income in America has fallen from $54K to $50K in the 4 years Obozo has been in office.
    2) 2 years complete control of the government. NO budget as required by the Constitution. Still has no budget. The one budget he presented that was actually voted on by the Senate went down to defeat by a vote of 97 to 0. Nice work Mr. Obozo!!! THAT IS an accomplishment!
    3) A new bankrupting entitlement program called Obozocare jammed through congress against the vast majority of Americans who were against it (and still are) and with the blessings of the idiot Nancy Piglosi who said “we have to pass the bill before we know what is in it”. Nice work, Mr. Obozo!
    4) Persistent unemployment that has been the worst since the Great Depression, especially among blacks and young people. His administration keeps claiming unemployment is going down, but in reality, they manipulate the formula by reducing the # of jobs available. And then they claim that over 8% unemployment is good! Quite an accomplishment in propaganda, but not economics, Mr. Obozo.
    5) Promises to close Gitmo…. instead, he spends $750K on a soccer field for terrorists. Don’t get me wrong, Gitmo should stay open. This is an example of how stupid and naive Obozo really is. Nice accomplishment, Mr. Obozo!
    6) Gas prices are up 100%++ across the nation. And Obozo is so dumb he actually believes that increasing supply has no effect on prices… what an idiot! Blocking EVERY permit that has come before his administration and blocking pipelines that increase supplies does HAVE consequences, Mr. Obozo. Gas prices are through the roof! Nice going Mr. Obozo!
    7) Real inflation rates are close to 8% or higher. Who measures inflation without food and fuel??????? Obozo does! Another strong achievement in propaganda, Mr. President!

    [the following items 8 - 11 are about Obozo's failed PUBLIC EQUITY business]
    8) SOLYNDRA!!!!!!!! need I say more? Nice job paying off your rich buddies who bundle campaign cash for you, Mr. Obozo! You can probably count on some of those dollars coming back to you. wink, wink!!
    9) SOLAR TRUST… another BILLION DOLLAR boondoggle in your attempt to play venture capitalist with taxpayer money that actually goes to your FAT CAT financier friends who are big donors. Nice money laundering accomplishment, Mr. Obozo! Should I say more? OK.. I will…
    10) ECOTALITY – Another “green” Obozo investment disaster. Obozo gave them $115 MILLION. The SEC investigates fraud at the company. While that’s going on, Obozo gives them another $26 MILLION…. What an idiot! Nice accomplishment Mr. Obozo!
    11) Fisker Automotive – yeah, that company that you gave $200MILLION to so they can build cars overseas, right? Great job creating jobs overseas, Mr. Obozo, you friggin clown!
    12) Fast and Furious!!!!! If this was a Republican Admin, all of you nutjobs that write on this web site would be going justifiably ballistic!! It would be the lead story on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSLSD, CNN, etc. etc.
    13) Same with the crook Jon Corzine. He steals $2B in client money, much of it farmers money, to cover his own bad bets. Then he gets to continue on raising money for Obozo like nothing ever happened. Where is Eric The Incompetent Holder? ……… crickets………. crickets……….. crickets………. Thought so!
    14) 88% of Americans say they are spending way more on groceries now than we were 4 years ago.
    15) 50% of Americans have had to give money to a relative at least once to help them get buy in the past 4 years.
    16) 47 MILLION Americans are on Food Stamps, and that number is growing quickly. In fact, Obozo has created more dependency than any other US President in history. Nice accomplishment, Mr. Obozo!
    17) Obozo was caught bribing Joe Sestak to NOT run against Specter. A clear felony. What is Eric “The Incompetent” Holder doing about it? Crickets….. crickets….. crickets……
    18) It has now come out that the Obozo had close ties with the New Black Panther Party and even marched with them at Selma in 2007. A few NBP thugs intimidate voters and the DoJ, after hearing from Obozo, decides to drop an open and shut, slam dunk case of voter intimidation which was CAUGHT ON TAPE!!! Hmmmm… why was that case dropped? Anyone care to venture a guess? Corruption from the thug-in-chief yet again.
    19) The “anti-war president” took troops in Afghanistan from 30K to 110K. The anti-war president that promised we’d be out of Afghanistan by July 2010. The anti-war president that took a war where only 400 Americans died in 8 years under Bush, and now 1700 have died under Obozo’s “leadership” in 3.5 years but which the media stays silent on that one. What happen to the nightly body counts on the news under Bush that seemed to have disappeared under Obozo? Body count goes up, media goes silent. Hmmmm… Nooooooo… they’re not in the tank! No way! You leftist freaks are hypocrites of the worst degree.
    20) Obozo Regime WAGES WAR ON US MILITARY AND THEIR VOTING RIGHTS. What a piece of shit this guy Barak Hussein Obozo guy is. How is it possible that a sitting president would sick his thugs at DoJ on our own military? Obozo is a despicable piece of human garbage and he should be thrown out just like scraps from the table.
    21) Obozo Regime f#%ks 20,000 employees and retirees of Delphi by stripping them of their pensions so that they can pay off the union thugs. Documents obtained now show that Turbo Tax Cheat Geithner personally was involve is this screwing of middle class workers at the direction of the messiah Obozo. How can anyone support Obozo the loser unless they are the most committed leftist freak?
    22) Benghazi: Obozo and Hillary are warned 2 days before our embassies are attacked, and do nothing. In fact, the security alert at the embassies was at the lowest level in muzzy countries on 9/11. What the hell are these incompetent idiots doing? I’ll tell you… appeasing radicals who will never like America and want us dead. How naïve and ignorant Obozo is. He is a disaster for America.

    I’ll continue to refocus the discussion on what is important and not these foolish smokescreens the left throws up to obfuscate Obozo’s true failure as a socialist in the White House.

    Have a nice day!

    Rescue by intimidation Obama flees to the devastating scene of the ravages of hurricane Sandy. Big deal. It amounts to writing a restoration check on taxpayers money. The rest was political non-sense. Rescue assurance by law which he is contrite and normally ignores. Just ask the four slain Americans at the Benghazi Embassy who fore warned our state department in eminent danger. The commander in chief thought better to entertain and campaign than do his elected responsibility. 9/11 was just another day-politics before life.

    Romney has the proven conclusion that privatizing jobs for our spirited Americans opposed to feeding the glut of government is the big picture. The Tea Party continues to make Americans aware by mandating individual progress is our responsibility. There continues long lines at the unemployment office and those with broken spirits have relinquished the search. They have the demonstrated talent to abandon a four year failed Socialist/Marxist administration and energize the rebuilding of our vanishing middle class.

    Now Obama wants to hire another crony as Secretary of Business. We build this economy-not government. Romney will get government out of the way!! Are you all asleep? Maybe have a comprehension problem? Bad distinction of the truth? Blinded by your last government check?

      All Romney will do is to get owners to outsource jobs to China just like he is right now. At the end of December somewhere around 200 jobs and equipment will be sent to China by Romney from a high tech plant, where once again he will be partners with the Red Chinese Army as he is with all the companies he has sent to China because the Red Chinese Army is partners in every American Company who has set up businesses there. Romney is not a business man he is a vulture who destroys the businesses he is suppose to be helping, walks away with millions leaving the businesses bankrupt and hundreds of workers without a job. And this is the type of person you want for your President? One that cares only about money, not the workers or the country. If he loves this country like he claims to he would not have outsourced thousands of jobs to China, the jobs would still be in the USA and more people would be working.

      • dljones

        Hillbilly:: Catch up. Romney has not been involved in Bain Capital for over a decade. It is a high risk debt ridden proposition with no chance of conventional financing. Subsequently, if you as a business owner, possibility of origination from two or three family generations save it’s future existence if the only way was out sourcing ? If your answer is no, there are a lot of loan sharks lending at 35% willing to “help you” on the additional condition of 51% ownership. This is risk management that can put you out on the streets.

    ‎”Syria is Iran’s route to the sea.” ~ Mitt Romney -Obama is the only clear common sense vote!!! Mitt’s knowledge of the outside world is positively not that of a “Commander In Chief”. Syria and Iran do not share a border. Iran already has a route to the sea. It’s called the Persian Gulf. Romney wants to open passenger flights windows, wants more navy vessels, & supports that women who get pregnant out of rape should not abort as it’s God’s will. The man went on to say he knows a lot about hurricane clean ups because in high school he was put to clean up the football field after a game!!!!

    It is very important to have a president who cares about his country, the people, and foriegn policy. The president is a thinker; and I think he did not use his head, we would be in bigger trouble than where W left us. If Romney is elected he would be doing the same thing he was caught doing in Ohio, by any means necessary.

  • old_timer_37

    Mitt Romney seems to believe that a volunteer fire department, which works in a rural area like my former home in Carmel Valley, would work in New York City!

    Now, of course he hasn’t said this, but his vision of replacing FEMA with voluntary aid is just as wrong and ultimately horrifically destructive.

    What works for a simpler agrarian society does not work in a complex, technical society with complex infrastructure that supports high poplulation densities. The Tea Party and Libertarians fail to understand this simple truth. To achieve their vision, mankind would have to abandon much of its technology and undergo a population implosion… to about 1 billion people.

  • jim1230

    If Romney has his way , He would privatize Fema. And hire Dick Cheny’s friend, Halliburton to run it like Bain capitol, Skim off the top 30% for fees, and then ask for more money to run FEMA. ( Like he also did in the Olympics in Utah . ) He would hire people to do the job that the National Guard does now. We are allready paying the Guard. CBS had Jed Bush on this AM. And he wouldn’t say anything good that the president had done. And after the awfull job that his NO GOOD BROTHER did in the Katrina flood. At least the president didn’t go to Wal Mart and purchase food to pass out to the people at the rally to make it look like they brought the items, I hope that the Democrats really watch the Romney Family owned voting machines. And the voter registration purgers. The major networks sure have bent over backward to let the Republicans tell LIES about The President. The worst part, is the news people of race that try to distant themselves from the president. On CBS & PBS. Just wait , if Romney wins, And uses the MORMON ,Billy Grayham OK’ed Bible.

    One key question on privatization. When private television made it’s debut thirty years ago, how much were we paying to get it? By 1990, cable fees has gone through the roof, not from efficiency and overhead costs, but from the bortom line. How much are we paying for cable today? In every case of privatization, it crumbles into failure. Privatizing utilities, garbage collection, schools, prisons, the only bright spot is in CEO reports reporting high profits, and it those profits aren’t attained, they close down. Who is hurt by this? Every Republican/Tea Party governor in every state is cutting and slashing, attempting to privatize everything they could get their hands on. they are a microcosm of what a Romney/Ryan administration would look like. That is why when President Obama pushed Romney to explain his economic and tax plan, Romney reiterated, “It’s on my website. Go to the website.” When VP Biden pressed Ryan to explain his economic and tax plan, Ryan gave a crytic explanation with subliminal keywords: “vouchers” “private industry” “privatize”. Under those clowns, America would cease to be a democratic Republic and turn into an aritocratic corporatocracy. Then, we would all descend into the first law of nature: survival of the fittest, kill or be killed, every man for himself.

        Allright..YOU GOP act as if WILLARD – Hypocritical Vietnam Draft-dodger – Mitt Romney somehow has all the answers to how to have handled Benghazi. HOW STUPID is THAT? What would he have done, probably ask his 17 NEOCON Bush advisors, and they would have said let’s Invade and go to WAR and we’ll set up more no bid contracts for our friends like Halliburton, KBR, Raytheon, Lockheed…etc.

        Back to the subject at hand…..Romney would have FEMA privatized and or state run, state by state….then what. NY and NJ bear the brunt of repair by themselves.
        That is what FEMA is for … spread the cost across 50 states; rather than 2. I won’t try to convince you to VOTE Obama, I already know where you stand. You are not going to convince people here that ROMNEY is not some BIG LIAR either. So why
        do you post here, just to see your own words on display?

        Have a Nice Day!

        • ObozoMustGo

          Gene…. please don’t be that stupid. When was FEMA formed? In 1979. How did people deal with natural disasters before that? Did they just all die and wonder why their benevolent government was not there to save them? NO! There have been disasters throughout history. People get throught them without your dream father, the Fed, there to give you the impression that they actually do anything by making you think they are feeding you and wiping your a$$. All of that is done at local levels anyway. FEMA is just another one of hundreds of pits that our government pours out money into. I hope Romney ends it like it should be ended. But he won’t. Pobably because all of you leftist freaks scream like stuck pigs at the thought of ending a single government program.

          Have a nice day!

          • jarheadgene

            STUPID…REALLY…..?????? Actually FEMA has been know by many names…various by the disaster it addressed …. going back to the 1800′s….I am not sure when….1810 or sometime thereabouts. President Carter signed the legislation that create FEMA known as FEMA in 1979 and it included several previously formed admins and laws. So let’s see the country went to war to separate from England in 1776 but our Congress was not in it’s working status, as is, with President Washington until 1789. So what, some 20 years later, people were seeking Federal assistance. Whatever companies you OWNED over your years would be the FIRST in line for FEMA money, if you were hit by some catastrophe and you would HYPOCRITICALLY denounce them out of the other side of your mouth LIKE MOST GOP……….GIVE ME A BREAK. Just like ROMNEY went to the FEDS to get money to run the Olympics and then tries to take ALL the credit for it….LIKE it was F****ing MAGIC!
            I lived in California….epicenter of Northridge Earthquake. My house some cinder blocks came loose on my Fence……I FIXED them myself. My neighbor’s on both sides had damage.
            I was a registered Republican and mostly voted GOP. My neighbor to the left was a DEM and applied for FEMA and used it properly. My neighbor to the right was GOP and he also applied for FEMA and from everything I could tell, based on his conversations, abused the money awarded him. I live in PA, I got a hole in my roof from SANDY…I WILL FIX IT myself, I wonder how many HYPOCRITE GOP’s will abuse FEMA on this ONE. Since hypocrocy rules their party…..I think many.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Gene… You got Sandy damage? You could stick your hand out for a freebie like all the other mendicants do. I’m on the east coast and got nothing but some rain and wind. No big deal. Was lucky.

            Re: FEMA…. this is another one of those debates that we can have over what the proper role of the Federal government is Gene. One may be able to argue in defense of disaster relief assistance, and then argue over exactly how it is carried out. That’s a fair debate.

            But the reality is, Gene, that we are broke. The bank is empty. You guys on the left scream and yell over Bush spending, and shut your mouths over Obozo being 2 times as bad in half the time. Then you all scream and yell when someone says lets cut program A, as if the end of the world will come without big government, and completely ignorant of the fact that 43 cents of every dollar the government spends, it borrows. And you are ignorant of the fact that what money it does not borrow, it first confiscates from the private sector, thereby draining the economy.

            You leftist freaks have got to get a grip. We cannot continue spending like there is no problem with it. Something must be cut. Everything must be cut somewhat, otherwise it will all be shut down permanently and without choice. We must have a responsible politician that will tell us the truth and actually do the job, not just say that he will cut the deficit in half, and then triple every year for 4 years.

            Romney was telling the truth, but not like you leftist freaks distorted. He was talking about streamlining the agency and looking for ways to make it more efficient. These are good things and are the responsible things to do. This needs to be done across the entire Federal enterprise. It’s the responsible thing to do. And Obozo has proven he cannot be responsible.

            Have a nice day!

And now as a Democrat I will fix my Sandy damage myself….my cost. IF we return to Clinton era taxation and get out of Afghanistan, we can chip away at the deficit. QUIT being so F***ing GREEDY.

            How am I the greedy one for wanting to keep more of the fruits of my own labor, but you are NOT the greedy onw for wanting to confiscate the fruits of my labor under the threat of a gun and jail?

            Who is greedy? Me for wanting to keep my earnings, or you for wanting to take my earnings?

            Awaiting your response I remain….

          • jarheadgene

            You know I have seen a poll, repeatedly, over this entire year asking which I favor. Spending less, Taxing more, Taxing Less, or Spending more. What really PISSED me off is, why can’t you have a choice of Tax More and Spend less? No I don’t want to take your earnings I AM NOT a thief. I want to see FAIR taxation….I would like to see what Pres. Reagan actually proposed. 8 to 10 % tax rate….FLAT … across the board, no loop holes no deductions……our pockets, as a country would be so FULL. But YOU (GOP) want to go with the Koch mentality, I am too Greedy to do that, but I don’t mind throwing $50 Million to try and buy an election. Romney only knows how to make money by flim flamming and scamming…..also called “Harvesting” companies. He IS a THIEF. If I was a thief why be shady about it…why not go right after it. East Coast …no power…..hmmmmm what do you think that does to alarms, cameras, electric locks etc. Not enough Generators and Battery backup only last so long. But Americans good Americans still pull together. Get with the program, are you pro-America…or pro profit at any cost?

          • ObozoMustGo

            Gene… you and I agree on taxes? I can’t believe it. Are cats and dogs getting along now? Wait…. let me go buy a lottery ticket…. hehehehe… I agree with a flat 10% tax across the board. No loopholes, no deductions. How much did you make? Multiply by 10% and send it in. Maybe you are more libertarian than you let on, Gene. That’s why I say that I believe most Americans are libertarian (small “L” intended) in their lives. You live and let live, right! I’ll take care of my family and those around me that need help. You do the same. I’ll keep my hands out of your pockets and you keep you hands out of mine. I think most Americans agree with that and I suspect you do as well. Which is why it puzzles me that you support Obozo. He is exactly the opposite. He believes in a large and powerful centralized government that is intrusive in every aspect of life. I don’t get it.

            Have a nice day and a good weekend, Gene! Thanks for the lively discussion.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Gene… I can’t believe it. We agree. Quick! Call Hell. Ask if the devil is freezing cold. hehehehehehehehehehehehe :-)

            Right you are. It’s the Congress that has been screwing us for 100 years since it created The Federal Reserve and turned progressive under FDR. They have sold Americans on the lie that if only we give up more of our money and our rights, they will take care of us. This applies to both parties, but with some individual exceptions. Meanwhile, they have spent us to $16 TRILLION in debt that’s on the books, and another $50 TRILLION in debt off the books in Medicare and SS. We are broke, Gene. Dead broke. I’m afraid that Bush and Obozo were the final 2 nails in the coffin. Very hard times are ahead, regardless of who wins the Presidency. That cake has been baked already and inflation is going to hit hard. I hope you are prepared for this eventuality, Gene. It is coming. Do you understand this, Gene? When inflation hits, as it will, interest rates will go up much higher. When those interest rates go up, what do you think happens to the interest payments on our nation’s debt? They skyrocket. There will be no money left for entitlement programs. I only hope that President Romney will be able to manage the ship and start shedding overhead quickly to keep us afloat. He is the better man to handle that situation, Gene, and you know I’m right.

            Anyway, I have to run for the weekend. Thanks for the discussion, Gene.

            Have a great weekend!

    Deregulation is so important in his race in 2003 Bush signed the American dream Down Payment ,legislation that increased the housing by 75% and cost Americans $10,000.00 for each house the banks gave away , deregulation of credit cards allowed them to increase interest from 18 to 35% and almost doubled the credit card debt in the US Romney has the same platform as Bush deregulation and no tax increase for tax for the rich . Every pres. since Carter has had something to do with deregulation , because our banks needed to be able to compete with overseas banks,because globalization was coming in

    Romney struggled for relevance. Presumably with the best intentions, he tried to transform an Ohio rally into a charitable gathering, where his campaign would collect canned food and bottled water for hurricane victims. But then his campaign workers were caught purchasing cases of food and water at a local Walmart, evidently planning to stage fake giving if necessary./// another smoke screen from the ANTI-CHRIST ROMNEY theres no end to his evil he will do to mis guide the ppl. of this country . hey ANTI-CHRIST ROMNEY i saw you on tv today well about you anyways ROMNEY= ANTI-CHRIST WITCH IS THE BEAST yup thats you . me i think its nice talk for you for if i could put my own words yahoo would just do this too me >>>!!@%%^&&^^^^^^*****()**^%$##@@&&^*(^%))*%^$^&** . but all in all you get my point . un less ur a GOP DING DONG then you have the excuse of not understanding it . im sure in the countrys time there was good and bad on both sides im sure . but for now the bad is the GOP and all that run with them . cant you ppl. see what thy stand for thy are more a cult then the mormans both try to out do each other . but the GOP thinks thy have an upper hand because thy get ppl. to belive there BULL CRAP and vote them into office . its the way of the ANTI-CHRIST read your good books it will tell you all about it . and the true ANTI-CHRIST=ROMNEY . he has the GOP following him . little do thy know he,d throw them under the bus also with out thinking twice about it . what this country and the ppl. should do is understand just what the GOP wants and stand for . thy stand for the greedy bastards of the 2 % and THERE WANT TO MAKE LEADER THE ANTI-CHRIST = ROMNEY see this as it is ppl nows the time when the GOP is on the bad side of history . and thy care nothing for the ppl. make this country a better place get rid of the GOP and all of them and let the good ones of this time take care of the country and the ppl. . the DEMS care about the ppl. its the middle class that makes the country grow . not from the top down from the bottom up like a tree or a flower if the ppl let the DEMS fix the mess the DIRTY BUSH left and even go back to the CLITON era there in 8 yrs 23 million jobs was made and the country had money in the bank and didnt owe anyother country nothing . even then the rich still got richer . thy just had to work for it more . not having money handed to thjem with the sweat and off the backs of the mioddle class

    When Chrysler and GM both condemn a ad by Romney concerning lies about jeep and the car industry concerning jobs being shipped to China you know Romney is diminished. When Governor Chris Christie a key note republican speaker at the republican convention praises President Obama for his excellent support with FEMA and the federal support given to the devastation of hurricane Sandy while Romney recently said he was against FEMA and wanting these federal programs cut and given to the states you know he is in trouble and running out of lies. What gets me is when are some of the moderate voices in the republican party going to let go of him like Colin Powell had the courage to do. This party’s rejection of hispanics, blacks and with Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock and others defining rape etc. they are losing many people especially women.This party has become a radical right wing party losing its grip with reality and they have a candidate who now is a out and out liar.
    Perception is everything and pics and video of Chris Christie together means a lot to women and independents; it portrays the President as poised, concerned, involved and presidential. Romney is on record about cutting Fema though now he of course will flip flop. I believe it will reflect in the poles by this weekend and many people will not want to get rid of Obama. The base and right and zombies will keep pointing to Libya even when no one else even thinks about it. They will repeat the rhetoric but the whole USA and the world just heard Governor Chris Christie praising the president on audio and video seeing the relationship between the federal and the states in a clear real way. Don’t tell me it didn’t help the president because it did. The other thing it did was keep President Obama in the news in a good way while relegating Romney in the back seat. Spin it all you want but the President wins!

    It is unfortunate for Obama that people cannot listen close enough to hear what he is saying. Bill Clinton on the other hand is very good at conveying what is right and wrong with America. I do believe that bigotry has been and continues to be a factor. I have a soon to be ex son in law who proudly says, “I have a right to be bigoted.” That is what is wrong with this country. People are proud to be ignorant and intolerant. That is sad and dangerous. Any sick person could become president if people vote for skin color, gender or sexual preference.

    THE PREDICAMENT OF BLACKS IN AMERICA

    Some bias-minded Republican Party members and their supporters will never get the point. They probably know that Gov. Romney could be the most depraved leader the country would ever see in history. What he is doing to get elected does not matter to their skinhead mentality because he is a white man. He can talk a monkey to come down from the tree. Let him be a flip-flopper, pulling all the dirty tricks in the book. As long as he is a white man, it is okay.

    The only underlying reason for their immoral and unethical ideologies against President Obama is that he is a black man. He is not supposed to be the Commander in Chief and the occupant of the White House. To his vicious opponents, Obama’s measures to rescue the country’s wrecked economy are regarded as a nation divider. His sincerity, dedicated service and the love for his country means nothing to them. Obama is a hero, only if he is all white. Bush and Cheney’s failed policies which led to economic stagnation, are glossed over.

    Why do they have eyes but cannot see? The Ex-President, Bush, called himself the war time president. The GOP should tell the nation why the heroic war time ex-President, has hesitated to show up with Mitt Romney at public events. Instead, the organizers have preferred to tell cock and bull stories to deceive the people. They use the game of manipulation as a blanket to cover up their tracks.

    Once upon a time in America, propagandists within the Republican party used “Weapons of Mass Destruction” to drag the country into an unpopular war in Iraq. Today’s GOP members are portraying and misrepresenting Obama to be a black and incompetent president. In their propaganda, they have claimed that the President cannot move the country forward. It is just like the Iraq war episode. With or without President Obama, the truth will prevail in the years to come. I would like to end my comments by stating as follows: I will renounce my vote for President Obama, if Bush will come out in support of Romney, as ex-President Clinton has done for Obama.

    To The peoples of New York and New Jersey….Being a hurricane victim ourselves down here in the South with the likes of Hugo….you will come back…and you will come back bigger and better than before….it may not seem like it at the present time…but you will…our hearts go out to all of you who has had lost of family and kins andf friends …i know it hard but all of you are in our prayers and we all hope you find peace within one another and thru the help of God….

    I LOVE that republicans, teabaggers and neo-conservatives are pooping their pants over Chris Christie giving Obama kudos for his response a badly damaged east coast. We need more fair-minded republicans like Chris Christie to work with democrats and get our country moving again. Our country really does well when both parties work together and hammer out deals to benefit the everyone. The last decent republican president was Eisenhower. The rest after have been pathetic, greedy and corrupt- Nixon, Reagan, George Bush, Sr and especially W!!! I would love nothing more than to see some conservative, moderate and liberal republicans and democrats. This is what represents the American people. I LOVE IT!!

    Why does retarded and brainwashed ALL AMERICAN and all of his racist, right-wing extremist pals only want to focus on Benghazi? They have come up with phony conspiracy theories saying that the president and his administration knew beforehand that it was a terrorist attack. All of these phony and false charges have been solidly refuted. Right-wingers, like nutty ALL AMERICAN, hate that and are seething in their disgust. They thought that they could put the nail in the coffin for the president on this one but it failed and backfired miserably. I wonder how they are going to feel on the day after election day when President Obama wins reelection. I can see the RethugLIARcon congress continuing in their obstructionist ways, Issa continuing to pursue his “witch hunt” investigations of the president hoping to have congress impeach him, the KKK, John Birch Society, right-wing extremist racists coming out of the woodwork committing crimes against minorities and Democrats, a call for overthrow of the government by racist, redneck militias, etc.

    Kudos to Obama and his efforts with FEMA and the damaged east coast. Thanks for introducing Chris Christie, a republican that even I can endorse.

    We have already seen what happens when you leave disaster relief to the private sector in those instances where firefighters stood by and watched homes burn because “they haven’t paid for the service”.

    It’s unfortunate a storm is sometimes what a nation needs to be reminded of what makes it great – its citizens working together, shoulder to shoulder, toward our common goals. I was recently reminded by a friend who is from the MidWest, but now lives on the Eastern Seaboard, that extreme hurricanes were extremely rare 20 years ago, but are now are yearly events. We don’t need to be in denial about Global Climate Change just b/c there’s tax-cut money out there trying to convince the rest of us, thru promoting such madness! This, we can estimate, is the benefits of tax-cuts only to the wealthy & why they should end immediately on Nov 7th!!! As for the ‘smaller govt’ madness spewed by T-party lunatics, it was only taken seriously by them anyway. We, of saner minds understood the role & function of government & so too now, does Governor Christie. Seeing it work to precision is something conservatives aren’t use to, but they should have left it alone & let Liberal/Progressive handle it, as it’s the only way it EVER gets done anyway! But the President needs help. His re-election means nothing if he doesn’t have a Liberal/Progressive Congressional & Senate majority to assist in putting back a storm-ravaged East coast & shattered nation that has yet to be fully reassembled. The jobs report 2day is but another of the several small steps of the overall national recovery. Voting correctly on Nov 6th – the way we ALL should have in 2010 – means all 100% of American’s will benefit from a full, 100% Liberal/Progressive recovery that we neglected implementing in the last MidTerm election…

    ‘Atlas Shrugs’ is fiction… Bad fiction at that! ‘Lier’ is spelled ‘liar’. The Constitution says if we want, we have the ‘liberty’ to practice ‘any’ religion we choose. The conservative, fanatical rite-wing fundamentalist Christian’s in this country are only rivaled by the Muslim Brotherhood – in their former days (as of now, they’re a ‘reformed’, legitimate political party in Egypt)… Also, conservatives imagine many things that aren’t so (Romney’s take on the Chrysler out-sourcing ‘initiative’), which begs the question, do mental incompetents find sanctuary w/the Republican party, or is the party that way naturally? Just curious…

    WILLIARD, THE LIAR, HE DOESN”T KNOW WHAT SCRIPT TO USE, SAY THIS, SAY THAT TO GET VOTES. ONE THING, OBAMA IS NOT A LIAR, HE HOPED FOR THE BEST WHEN HE TOOK OFFICE, BUT WE ALL DID NOT KNOW THE DEBT BUSH AND CHANEY GOT US INTO, NOT TO SAY THE DEAD SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN IN A WAR IN IRAQ TO MAKE BILLIONS FOR CHENEY. NOW WE WILL SEE THE VOTING MACHINES THAT ROMNEY’S BUDDIES ARE USING IN CERTAIN STATES. CERTAIN REPUBLICIANS SHOULD BE IN JAIL FOR THEIR MISDEEDS, AND MCCONNELL, GINGRICH, CHENEY, BOENER, MCAIN SHOULD BE ALL IN THE SAME CELL,.

    Obama Leads In Ohio, Narrowly Ahead In Florida, Poll Says
    President Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney by six percentage points in Ohio, and edges the Republican by two points in Florida, according to an NBC/WSJ/Marist poll released Friday night.

    This brings his Electoral College total now up to 281 from 277….Florida will give him another 29 votes.

    President Obama is going to be re-elected.

    It is simple mathematics.

    And the American people have rejected this:
    Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels (like Foxnews, Limbaugh, beck and Rove believe) said it best:

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    or as Adolph Hitler stated:

    “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it”

    The American people (who truly believe in American values) WON’T BUY THE LIES anymore.

    The facist neo-Republican Teaparty/Rove/Koch types and those who support Romney here, in the Supreme Court, and across the USA have been told to take a long walk off a very short pier.

    There it is! Out in the open. Mitt Romney is exposed for what he really is… a political light-weight who would never have gained political office but for his money. We could just as easily have had Pablo Escobar run for office. He probably made a lot more money than Mitt Romney, while being equally unfit. The republicans have become irrelevant. Governors Christie and Cuomo and Mayor Bloomberg, are thanking God that they don’t have to deal with an arrogant fool like Mitt Romney and his Second-Banana, Paul Ryan. There is no way in hell that the “Private Sector” is going to deal with a catastrophe the size of Hurricane Sandy. If you think otherwise, go to Citi-Group or one of the other large banks and tell them you need a loan to repair the damage. See what they tell you. The insurance companies are already trying to dodge liability. They couldn’t even deal with their own balance sheets, which is what caused the financial melt-down… Remember? It was just 4 years ago that banks were crashing like dominoes. But Romney would have us believe he has answers. He takes us for fools! It would be just like him to go to Walmart’s and buy some canned goods and then LIE about how he came into possession of them, to make himself look influential. That is his true character. He doesn’t care about those who were victimized by the storm, whom he probably considers part of the “47%.” Not only is the private sector not prepared to deal with the effects of a 900-mile long super-storm, but the States are also ill-prepared to tackle such a disaster. President Obama is a Good Man. The right man for the times. Unlike former President George W Bush, Obama didn’t stay home and get drunk… He went out and did His JOB!!! Meanwhile Governor Romney was somewhere crafting his next lie. Where are the Tea Party, the ignorant mass of gofers who are so “Anti-Government?” Maybe this will serve as a learning experience for them as they wonder what they will do for a house now that the water has washed theirs away. Maybe Mitt Romney and Bain Capital will bail them out???

    So if we eliminate FEMA because it’s somehow “immoral” to help people whose lives are destroyed by forces beyond their control, then how do we deal with disasters? Let people sink or swim? Deal with it on their own? I mean honestly, what kind of freak is this Romney dude? I sincerely hope this man loses the election. He’s screwy.
