Dr. Sowell, If you read this then I'd lke you to post page S6823. I looked this up and the piece of legislation had several bills attached to it. One was for additional funding for the Iraq war. The other was for 3.6 billion dollars of additional Katrina relief for which BO voted no. However, there was nothing about a vote to waive the Stafford Act requirement. From what I gathered, the Senate did vote on the Stafford Act requirement a couple of weeks prior so BO still knew that it had been waived when he made his racist speech. Look, I'm like most of the subscribers to TH and I want this fraud removed from the WH ASAP, but I'd like some clarification on this.

From the text of the bill referred in the previous post:

"SEC. 4501. (a) IN GENERAL.—Notwithstanding any other provision
of law, including any agreement, the Federal share of assistance,
including direct Federal assistance, provided for the States
of Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, and Texas in connection
with Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma, Dennis, and Rita under sections
403, 406, 407, and 408 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief
and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5170b, 5172, 5173, and
5174) shall be 100 percent of the eligible costs under such sections."

Seems pretty clear cut. Obama lied.
When President Barack Obama and others on the left are not busy admonishing the rest of us to be "civil" in our discussions of political issues, they are busy letting loose insults, accusations and smears against those who dare to disagree with them.

Like so many people who have been beaten in a verbal encounter, and who can think of clever things to say the next day, after it is all over, President Obama, after his clear loss in his debate with Mitt Romney, called Governor Romney a "phony."

Innumerable facts, however, show that it is our Commander in Chief who is Phony...
