He's very consistent at being inconstant a total douchebag.

Wow, now I really don't know who to vote for. This is disturbing my brain cells.

While I am all for people evolving their opinions and not being shackled to one doctrine... this really reeks of horse malarkey.

And PBS. And the Department of Education.

Anyone see a trend here?

Whew. I was thinking we would need to rely on insurance companies to rescue people.

Has Obama declared this an act of nature yet?

Or is he blaming it on some incendiary hurricane-chasing youtube video?

Well, fark, why don't we just "de-fund" all of government until we pay no taxes and live in an anarchy? But, then we can support those programs when we need them. Like FEMA. We just de-fund it and then give it money when we need it.

Obama campaign needs to hammer VA with ads of Mitt's quote about getting rid of FEMA. Sure, the right-wing pundits will cry foul, but they're going to biatch about whatever he does anyway.
 
2012-10-30 12:14:10 PM
This article went green at about 12:05. From the thread below:

President declares federal disaster area in NY in the wake of hurricane Sandy. Romney to announce his severe love for FEMA and federal disaster aid by noon today

I'll call it a win for Fark.

You just know that the rabid right-wing conspiracy nuts (AKA the GOP's base) are now thinking that the
ZOG has got to Rmoney and implanted him with the Mark of the Beasttm brain control chip.

That joke was worse than the hurricane.

See, now I fear that Obama may be one of the few relics left who actually believes in "tactful" politics. Personally, I got that beaten out of me sometime around the 100th demand for his birth certificate. So I'm all for him politicizing this and turning Romney's original position against him via TV ad bomb.

He won't, but I wish he would.

I would never vote for Mitt Romney, but I don't see how his unidentified spokesman's statement that Romney wants to ensure that the states have the resources and assistance they need to cope with natural disasters is confirming that Romney wants to eliminate FEMA. Now, Romney saying in the debate that he absolutely would eliminate FEMA is another story, but the recent statement from his campaign is a lot less absolute.

States are already first responders. The whole point of FEMA is to provide them any aid if it reaches beyond what they can handle. The Romney campaign has a knack for using lots of words to say precisely nothing.

If Romney wins then this country is essentially getting what it deserves: The lasting, painful effects of willful ignorance.
 
2012-10-30 12:17:29 PM
As we noted yesterday, eliminating the federal component of disaster relief is a terrible idea. And after Hurricane Sandy left millions suffering

Aw, the suffering millions. Silly ass libs.

The sarcasm and satire of Fark is now becoming actual reality. Fark will tip so far into satire that it will come back around to serious news commentary......

Perhaps you're right. This is no time to joke. Businesses Obama built are being destroyed.

His thinly-disguised "Charitable Food & Sundries Delivery That Really Is In No Way Politicizing This Storm™" that is going on right now in Ohio is really pissing me off. If he wanted to be truly charitable, he would have delivered all this stuff anonymously (or at least with little fanfare) to local food banks and assistance organizations, which, by the way, would have been along the lines of what he agrees with, supposedly. Start with local, then ask for state help, then federal, which, as TFA correctly points out, is EXACTLY HOW IT WORKS NOW.

Instead, he wants to politicize the act of charity and drive the narrative that Mitt knows better than what is going on right now.

I heard him say at that shindig (and I'm paraphrasing) that he remembers when Katrina refugees were sent from New Orleans to Massachusetts while he was governor, he met them and blah blah blah, and that's why he's got the experience to deal with major natural disasters.

Mitt, go fark yourself. You really know nothing about it.
