this was one of Limbaugh's main talking points today - he was actually gleeful and happy that Obama had to call off his campaign schedule in order to do his job as President. Rush was happy over the death and destruction, seeing it as a good thing for the GOP in general, and Romney in particular.

ladies and gentlemen, I give you the face of the modern Republican party.

If I remember correctly, there was a crisis 4 years ago in New York that led to the suspension of campaigning, and it led to a resounding Obama victory.

Neither were President at the time.

Is this the thread where we chastise libby libs for their hypocritical glee at Isaac hammering the RNC? Or is that a few down?

I wouldn't say it was gleeful or happy. But sometimes these pundits forget there is real life out there and just focus on politics like it's a game. Saw the same thing but from a different agile on MSN when they were going from depressed that Obama was off the trail to happy that he can now look all Presidential right before the election. At least Rush wasn't being bi-polar.

I don't doubt these people's humanity, I do however doubt their sense of prospective

I find it deliciously ironic that same timing has illuminated Trump as a delusional hack yet again. For someone who is apparently into heavy real estate in NYC and AC, his priorities seem farked up.

But hey glad he extended his deadline, was worried there for a second.

Does anyone else find it deliciously ironic that Hurricane Sandy has forced the "suspension" of the Obama campaign while the president play-acts the role of nurturer-in-chief in the aftermath of the storm? Recall that John McCain disastrously suspended his "campaign" four years ago to sit around and look worried about the unfolding financial crisis, and while that alone did not cost him election, it did allow candidate Obama to both eat McCain's lunch out on the hustings and appear as "no-drama Obama" to an electorate that knew virtually nothing about the nice young man, in contrast the panicky old codger whose ability to influence the course of events was precisely zero.

No, I recall that McCain was criticized for making a big deal out of suspending his campaign (while at the same time politicizing it by asking Obama to suspend his campaign and postpone a debate) in order to race back to Washington to deal with a situation that, as a Senator, McCain had little role in fixing. Here, by contrast, Obamahas quietly called off his campaign events to remain in Washington, where he, as Presidet, is responsible for overseeing a multi-state relief effort.

Yes, because Isaac and Sandy are exactly the same thing.
 
2012-10-30 03:15:45 PM
Actually, it's beginning to look like Hurricane Sandy has basically created the best possible campaign ad for Obama.

"When disaster strikes, he'll actually get shiat done and help people"

That said, even if it gives Obama the election I wish to god it had never happened, even if my preferred candidate lost the race as a result.

Well they're right you know... Obama campaign suspension = McCain campaign suspension therefore Romney is automatically president.

You're in an alternate universe where Isaac actually hit Tampa. We're over here in the real world where Isaac veered off into Mississippi.

But yay, dead people, amirite?

ftfa: Meanwhile Romney gets to hold the ball and run down the clock;

and on top of all the other ridiculousness, he sincerely believes romney is winning.
 
2012-10-30 03:18:06 PM
Uh. So has Romney, to a point. Didn't he have his campaign bus helping with evacuations or something? Although, Romney doesn't have this pesky thing called a "job" he has to do...

Now, thanks to Sandy, Obama's a prisoner in his own White House, reduced to the role of First Suit as he poses for photo-ops and feigns concern about the plight of Snooki and others along the Jersey Shore

Half of Manhattan and all of Staten Island and spots throughout the other boroughs are without power, the storm has farked up plenty from Delaware to Maine, and dozens of people have died. It's going to take days for the most populated areas to clean up, weeks at best for rural areas. Eat all the dicks, you shiathead.

Uh, no. There's an actual thread earlier linking to deadmoran.com that was asking where is the snark now, and why couldn't Democrats act like adults over this sort of thing. The irony being that the snark is currently residing at the other armpit of the internet, NRO.

This is just insane. We should not be bickering about politics at a time like this. The real discussion we should be having is whether or not we should rebuild Manhattan. I mean, those people chose to live in a place where this could happen. Look at it - all that flooding from just a category 1.

I say we build a giant wall around New York City, then we could empty all our prisons into the city and let them all survive (or not!) inside.

Honeslty, at this point, handling Sandy is the best possible campaigning he can do.

It shows the nation "Hey folks, this is how I handle a crisis. You think the other guy would do this? You know, the guy who wanted to gut FEMA?

I hate myself for this, because New Yorkers were completely awesome to me in particular and New Orleans in general during Katrina.

A woman I never met before -- a friend of a friend -- literally gave me the keys to her Chelsea apartment and told me to stay as long as I wanted while she went and stayed with her girlfriend in Jersey.

Yet I can't help myself. It's too perfect.

Just as long as we don't follow up the inevitable success of this idea with a cheap, half-assed attempt at trying the same thing in L.A. that will completely ruin the franchise.

That was an abomination. A "Highlander 2"/"Godfather 3"-level cinematic hate crime. But, the story went that Russell was presented with two scripts and the studio would green light whichever one of the two he wanted. One was the sequel to "Escape from New York." The other was a sequel to "Big Trouble in Little China." I think all us dodged a huge bullet there, assuming that would have done to "Big Trouble in Little China" what "Escape from LA" did to its predecessor.
