So Romney's opinion is literally shifting with the way the wind blows. Amazing.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Yep, he'll fall right back in love with a federal agency that he wants to eliminate, and with a funding mechanism that he called "immoral". That's Quantum Romney for you.

MyRandomName: The liberal belief that only the federal government can prepare for disaster is hilarious. They can't even utilize the national guard.


The Republican belief that privatizing an emergency response agency will make it better, is even more hilarious.

bdub77: Good for him. We shouldn't politicize natural disasters...at ALL. (Except perhaps to recognize that climate change is indeed a threat to our planet - I think this storm is an anomaly more than caused by climate change.)


In an election year in which AGW has hardly been discussed, when a major and highly aberrant hurricane which was certainly precipitated and exacerbated by AGW in the first place, when one candidate has gone out of his way to mock and deny AGW while vowing to cut FEMA, I say it's fair farking game.

Do you ever get the feeling this gut is playing some kind of warped Mad-Libs"?

Check it out:
"The____________belief that only the ____________ can prepare for ---------------is hilarious.
They can't even -------------- the ------------ -----------------."

It's equally mindless no matter what words you plug in to it.

Why not? I know it's against the GOP's rule that says people aren't supposed to discuss anything Romney says or does, but this week will show people A.What FEMA actually does, and B.That Little Lord Mittleroy, as usual, has no idea what the fark he's talking about.

We don't need another guy that will put his dressage instructor in charge of disaster management.

stoli n coke: MyRandomName: The liberal belief that only the federal government can prepare for disaster is hilarious. They can't even utilize the national guard.

No, that would be the governors that order to send in the guard. It's also the governors that have their hands out for that federal money. (See Perry, Rick 2011, and Christie, Chris Today)

It's incredible how that works.


The President can mobilize the National Guard in the event of a national emergency.

\Was mobilized under the National Defense Act in the mid 90s for floods in my state.

If I may qualify that, I believe the Governor requested that it be a federal call up as we had NG troops from other states.

Obama is asking for one.

To be fair, he has been serving with the biggest collection of do-nothing-but-straight-party-line-argumentative derps in Congress I've ever seen...

skinnycatullus: Just saw Chris Christie on Morning Joe praising Obama... going out of his way to say more than he needed to, actually.


Christie strikes me as the type of guy who is a rational politician and sees the opposing party as people with whom he doesn't necessarily agree but whose opinions he respects. The only reason he didn't run for president is that he didn't want to get into the derpfest of appealing to the republican 'base' to eventually lose to Obama while disconnecting himself from his own constituents. He basically just set himself up to run (and win) in 2016. I'm ok with this.

Christie has his own policy and ethics issues running back from when he was attorney general, and I can't say I agree with everything he's said and done, but on the other hand his response to the disaster has been very good.

How could I send it in a letter if the postal service didn't exist? I guess I could Fedex it, but that's crazy talk.

Is that really all the left has left to offer now? As someone who doesn't support any lying slimbag candidate, regardless of party affiliation, I honestly think that the left should be able to conjure up a better argument than that. Talk about issues. Address the cries of "soshulizzm". Lay out concise plans as to how your side wants to make things better.

But please, enough already. Every right-winger is not some frothing racist. I know people that are bigots, and they cross the political spectrum. I know liberals who don't like gays. I know conservatives who support gay marriage. I know democrats who don't care for blacks and republican black guys. Reality is not what FOX or MSNBC tells you. This one size fits all "rassssisssssmmm!" rallying cry has really worn out its welcome.

I know, right? I mean, the guy wore this T-shirt to a Romney rally, but that was months ago, people. Months. Baseball season was still going on, man. It's ancient history. Racism is so over.

But we get it. Both sides bad, vote Republican, or for the Republican who lost in the primary and calls himself a libertarian now.

That's a shame. I want to like the guy (mostly because I really wish there was a conservative candidate that didn't bow to this country's whackos), but I appreciate the info.

I'm hoping the gay marriage thing was just his inability to take a political stand (much like Obama's "evolving" views when he'd clearly been pro marriage equality since 2004 based on his public statements), but the whole issue is so over at this point I hope he corrects his course.
