@Tolstoy - what seems clear to me is that every time you use the term "try
to make cheap political points" (which has become your tiresome broken
record of late), you are merely trying to make cheap political points of your
own by trying to minimize those with legitimate concerns about our current
president. The tactic of deflection by way of casting dispersion on
the motivations of opponents, without addressing the merits of an argument, has
long been the default modus operandi of Democrats and particularly President
I find it interesting that the article said nothing about climate change. While
you can't peg Sandy specifically on climate change, you can absolutely peg
the marked uptick in severe weather events (including Sandy) on climate change.
Obama has not done nearly enough about it, but is Romney going to even
acknowledge that the problem exists?
It's very typical that the media is hanging onto Obama's every word
about the storm but make no mention of Romney also cancelling his campaigning
and letting his campaign busses to be used to aid the storm victims. I love the
liberal news media. They are so predictable. Oh yeah.
eastcoastcougObama created Horrible economic conditions? He has added jobs
for how many straight months now? Which direction has the stock market gone.
Which direction is the unemployment rate going? things are not where any of us
would like them to be but lets at least be honest about which direction our
country is heading.
It is very interesting that the Labor Department is considering
'delaying' the last jobs report before the election until the Friday
AFTER the election. They are saying that with the storm they may wait to
release the numbers. Just a couple of questions: Does the Labor
Department use carrier pigeons to deliver this report? Are they dispatching the
Pony Express and the riders just can't make through the storm and debris?
Or is it that the telegraph cables are going to be down? Help me understand why
the Labor Department would consider delaying the release of potentially bad
unemployment numbers the Friday before the election.
"Hurricane Sandy is hardly “good news” for Obama. According to
reports, swing states like Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and possibly New
Hampshire will get hit. The storm will pass days before the election, but the
ripple effects of this inclement weather will be felt for many days and the
weeks to come. Experts predict flooding, massive storm damage, and even
electric power outages for days or weeks. This could directly impact the
election. Here’s why Sandy hurts Obama. Polls consistently show
his voters are much less enthusiastic about voting for him than Mitt Romney
voters. Put another way, Obama voters are looking for ANY excuse to not vote for
him. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney voters will drive through a blizzard to the polls.
They want to throw Obama out of office badly. Very badly.Right now, polls
and voting trends are very positive for Mitt Romney." Dick MorrisMy prediction is that by Wednesday the Obama camp will realize their cynical
attempt to use this weather disaster for political gain was one big failure.This means the last 5 days of the campaign will be absolutely critical
for both Obama and Mitt Romney." Dick Morrie
Why does everything have to have an impact on the election? Snap out of it.
These people need our help desperately. Let's drop partisanship and pull
together on this thing for crying out loud.
Tolstoy,I'm not making my comments lightly: My basement has
already flooded twice from recent severe storms such as Sandy and with no
insurance, I have forked over tens of thousands of dollars for repair. Today
could be a repeat. If that weren't enough, starting a business in this
horrific economy has stretched us to a breaking point that has stretched over
several years. Obama has created terrible economic conditions. The man has no
clue how to run government or create jobs, only tax the rich.
Maybe it will take attention away from the storm that has been pounding the
economy for the past 4 years. Hopefully Barrack can do something positive with
Sandy. He certainly hasn't accomplished much in creating an economic
@eastcoastcougSo the tragic deaths that have already occurred due to this
storm and the lives that have been severely altered are a "walk in the
park?" It is sad that someone would try to make cheap political points of
such a tragedy. I hope you and yours remain safe and come through this storm
A hurricane change people's minds about voting? What are you folks in Utah
smoking? Oh yeah, right.
Yes, the President will capably handle this. Then Fox news and commentors such
as patriot will blame act of god for Romney loss.
The large-scale disaster affecting millions has already occurred the past 4
years with Obama. Sandy is a walk in the park by comparison.
@patriotstill waiting for any credible evidence obama lied about anything,
but hey why not exploit another tragedy (the hurricane) for short term political
purposes after all thats what you do right?
Patriot is right. No doubt BO helped cause this storm with the increased oil
drilling he allowed in America and it's affect on global warming. Now, he
creates this imaginary blanket of security that he has everything under control.
If we don't get this man out of office he'll control the weather and
bring mass destruction to the free world. Romney and Ryan will return the
weather along with truth to all us.
Patriot, your leaps of logic are astounding feats.
yes forget what happened in Libya but instead be impressed that Obama is safe
and warm in the White House saying he is personally directing hurricane aid and
even helping with the sand bags. What a bunch of hooey!! Who cares about what
OBama does or doesn't do with the hurricane. He lied and caused the death
of 4 Americans in Libya and I think that matters a bit more to any voter going
to the polls.
