Why was bush's name associated with Katrina...Bush had gutted FEMA and there was nobody around to lift folks off the roof tops and provide shelter for them. It was a mess. FEMA's excellent work tipped that election Obama's way.

chicaree seems to be one of the willfully blind liberals, picking and choosing amongst facts and non-facts for those that suit his/her world view.

For instance, can chicaree tell us how Bush "gutted" FEMA, or is the belief that Bush gutted FEMA simply liberal lore?

And can chicaree explain why FEMA is still not able to deliver adequate food and water to Sandy victims, two weeks after the storm was known? Or is that fact (as reported by multiple news sources) simply too painful, too destructive of liberal love for Obama, to cognate? Will that fact be tossed away like all the other inconvenient facts?

If Benghazi was successfully hidden until after the election, then nothing is too obvious to hide by ABC, etal. A year from now, Benghazi will be getting the Fast and Furious treatment. " Nothing to see, it's a distraction from our real problems, old news, etc." Remember you read it here. Nothing--nothing--will happen over Benghazi, at least not to Obama, Clinton or those really responsible.

chicaree forgets that BUSH had FEMA all set to go in, but the mayor wouldn't let them in right away.

Probably had to be sure his democrat crimes were will concealed before letting anyone see his city.

Re: chicaree,
-- Bush had gutted FEMA and there was nobody around to lift folks off the roof tops and provide shelter for them.--

You mean that only FEMA can lift people from rooftops? Before FEMA, people were left to rot on top of rooftops, you say? Where are then the pre-FEMA skeletons?

-- FEMA's excellent work tipped that election Obama's way. --

Actually, the scant news available from that area indicates that FEMA is blumbling yet again. The reason it made no difference in this election is because it happened too soon before the election. In the coming months, the enormity of the incompetence will be too obvious for ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN to hide.
I expect that by the time you read this, President Obama will have been re-elected. Get ready for four more years of Big Bloated Government.

Hurricane Sandy didn't help.

The New York Times declared "a big storm requires big government," and my liberal neighbors agreed.

My science-challenged mayor, Michael Bloomberg, said the storm makes it imperative that America do something about climate change. He said this even though hurricanes have not increased and little evidence exists that man has much effect on climate. With Obama's re-election, we now will spend billions more on "green" strategies. But the Earth won't notice.
