    At one time slavery was excepted as a normal part of life, until some with a vision changed things.

    Today it's normal for many to have government take from the working man and redistribute it. Many have excepted stealing, lying, and covetousness as a way of life, and expect government to do this for them, with the excuse of providing a living.

    Some day leaders with a vision will recognize this, and will help us be responsible for our care. This is what made America great.

    Weather situations of this type normally don't happen in this sequence for Florida and the East Coast. However, it does impact on the political scene for some time. The election is thrown a curve for the candidates in all those states, and potentially for all of us.

    Weather can't be changed by the President as he does for people such as Osama Bin Laden or the Benghazi attack results.

    Thank goodness Governor Romney is out using his influence for votes at a time when contingencies are important to show.

    Our nation's contingency operations were tested at Benghazi. We have plans for all types of contingencies. In the past 4 years, this administration hasn't dealt with too many contingencies but the Seals who died knew what their organization had as plans. Why would they not obey direct orders to stand down? Their conviction is what they fell back to in this type of situation.

    They were the highest of all trained military people. They lived their training and thinking of their operational expertise.

    They knew the United States of America would come and support them to their dying moment. That is what they are trained to do.

    When the President goes all day this week without sleep, where was he when Benghazi was happening? News agencies, which are supposed to protect our country by fair and balanced reporting, have not dug into this. Where is Bob Woodward on this issue? Hopefully, someone like him is out there doing their own unbiased investigation.

    The Senate leader is not doing his part to do anything except telling his Senators to not discuss it through the guise of their security and intelligence posts. Hopefully, Senator Reid will be out there digging into this type of thing. However, since it has devastating political fallout the coverup appears to be happening for the Democrats at all levels.

    It is not just the President, who says, he will have a thorough investigation.

    What happens if this type event, which could happen today, happens again? How do we know as citizens that our country is fully protected as much as it can be? I believe there are serious deficiencies after this event.

    Having flown C-130 aircraft and working with the special operations units, there are things that could have been done. Fighters and drones are at the full access of the President.

    There is a reason he had to persuade voters, not just in Florida. This President doesn't tell the truth about Governor Romney and about our government of the people, by the people and for the people.

    Aside from the economy he failed to deal with for 4 years and not getting a budget passed and signed for 4 years is an abyss. This administration failed miserably with the Benghazi situation.

    The President's lacking national policies didn’t interfere with his policy of vacations, trips, expenditures, giving money for votes to unions, Czars, and a Benghazi affair that he left in Las Vegas (What happens in Benghazi, stays in Benghazi).

    His leadership couldn't handle the moment's notice at "3 a.m." in the morning with 7 hours in advance. The President had advance warning about Osama Bin Laden so "he" could pull the trigger. In Benghazi, the President and his highest advisers could not pull the trigger when our dedicated servants of the United States of America gave their lives for our country. The two seals even disobeyed stand down orders. They did what any dedicated person would do for their comrades-in-arms but sacrificed.

    Scaring old people into voting for you is not a noble thing.

    "Let's see if the majority of voters agree with your assessment on Nov. 6th"

    Unfortunately, the reelection of George W. Bush in 2004 pretty much shows that voters don't always choose the honest candidate.

    "It would really be unique if he would do that at last once."

    Let's see if the majority of voters agree with your assessment on Nov. 6th. He who laughs last laughs best.

    Do all that you can to be safe, all of you in the NorthEast. Whatever the politics, just be safe. Prepare, and those in charge of disaster relief, please be on your toes.

    Way to go Barack, take all the photos near The Air Force One before your free rides end come Nov 6th.

    "He didn't tell the truth." is the new "Show us your taxes." It didn't work then and it's not working now. You've got some nerve calling Mitt Romney a liar when Barack Obama and his administration have openly lied to all of us about Benghazi.

    "He didn't tell the truth" is not fooling anyone. It is a desperate campaign tactic from a man who is bankrupt of any ideas. I saw Obama's 'new' 20 page plan. There is nothing new about it.

    I saw his speech. Once again he didn't tell the truth. It would really be unique if he would do that at last once. Won't happen . . .
