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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

First of all, WTF is ironic about any of this? Secondly, John McCain was candidate who had no particular authority or expertise with respect to the economic crisis, when even the "experts" were befuddled about what exactly was happening and what to do about it, whereas BARACK OBAMA IS THE F*CKING PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and is dealing with a known crisis and doing a pretty good job of it so far (at least, according to that far-left libby Chris Christie).

no wonder the media lefties are shouting about changing the date of the election.

Yeah, about that...I followed your handy link, and found out that the article discusses whether it is possible to move the date of an election, in terms of the Constitution, federal and state law, etc., and concludes that it is possible, but it would be a huge clusterfark that no one wants and no one is "shouting about" doing it.

You are a f*cking asshole, Michael Walsh.

I sat my wife down to watch BTILC and introduced it, in my opinion, as the last movie that ever needed to be made, period. That Hollywood should have just shut down and gone dark afterward, since nothing would be able to top it, ever.

You and I need to grab a beer sometime. Or lunch.

Can anyone explain to me how a piece at ABC.com with the headline of "Could Sandy Push Back Election Day?" and whose third 'paragraph' is the single sentence " The short answer is it is possible, but very unlikely to happen. " can be taken and written into the following sentence:

"no wonder the media lefties are shouting about changing the date of the election."

What kind of mind-blowing brain injury must you have to sustain in order to take some idle speculation including the acknowledgement that that speculation is 'very unlikely' and turn it into "media lefties are shouting about changing the date of the election"?

Rush was happy over the death and destruction, seeing it as a good thing for the GOP in general, and Romney in particular.


Of course. Those 38 people were east-coasters, and therefore probably liberal. Good riddance, as far as Rush is concerned.

I find it interesting that Rush thinks this is bad for Obama. If you were to politicize this I think it's great news for him. He gets to flex his commander in chief muscles at the last second for something that has captured the nations attention. He may not be hanging out in Ohio, but I would assume he is racking up points with voters. I personally see this as the worst thing that could happen to Romney. He can't get any face-time without looking insincere or for photo-ops.

As I recall, libby libs were making fun of Republicans for choosing to put their convention--which could have been held in a number of different places--in a hurricane zone during hurricane season. Nobody cheered on the hurricane.

If you want to make fun of the people who tried to go jogging in Central Park during hurricane Sandy, be my guest.

There seems to be a bit of history revision going on here. When John McCain suspended his campaign in order to deal with the financial crisis, I thought he was being a bit of a drama queen. Not because the crisis wasn't a crisis, but because he seemed to have an overinflated opinion of the importance of his presence in Washington. But hey, he was taking his job seriously and I wasn't going to rag on that.

Except that it turned out to be a lie. He made a huge stink about cancelling his appearance on David Letterman's show, only to be caught by Letterman's cameras sitting in the make-up chair prepping for an interview with Katie Couric. The whole "rush back to DC" routine was just more of the Maverick's horse shiat.

Or something. I don't get it because I can't just flip a switch and make myself a schizoid asshole.

In any event, in this case they are trying to make this Obama's Katrina. Of course, the Katrina debacle was entirely due to Bush and Brownie sitting on their asses and not reacting quickly or thoroughly. Given that we already know that Obama reacted very quickly, and very thoroughly (based on statements from NJ governor and GOP blow-up mascot Chris Christie), the equivalency is non-existent.

Which surely just enrages the teahadists even more...

I have observed that some "conservative" themed humour is an attempt to copy jokes originating either from "liberal" humourists or from nonpartisan sources, but with a failure to comprehend the actual source of the humour. I have observed this trend in other discussions. This may be a consequence of more traditional, "original" conservative-themed humour lacking actual subtlety and often being too blunt to be humourous.

Dimensio: I have observed that some "conservative" themed humour is an attempt to copy jokes originating either from "liberal" humourists or from nonpartisan sources, but with a failure to comprehend the actual source of the humour. I have observed this trend in other discussions. This may be a consequence of more traditional, "original" conservative-themed humour lacking actual subtlety and often being too blunt to be humourous.



I have found that there is no such thing as a funny conservative. The humor is always vile, and mean spirited.

Vile and mean-spirited humour can, under the right circumstances, be amusing. Conservative attempts at "humour", however, rarely if ever are, even if they are not inherently mean-spirited.

Benghazi: Obama is just a loser because he went to a fund raising, campaign event when Americans were in harm's way.

At this point, the election is too close for it to hurt him and if this is managed effectively and competently (and it seems to be going that way) it's a nice reminder to people right before the election that Obama is good at being the adult in the room.
 
Immaterial though. This is what he has to do, campaign be damned.

hutchkc: I find it interesting that Rush thinks this is bad for Obama. If you were to politicize this I think it's great news for him. He gets to flex his commander in chief muscles at the last second for something that has captured the nations attention. He may not be hanging out in Ohio, but I would assume he is racking up points with voters. I personally see this as the worst thing that could happen to Romney. He can't get any face-time without looking insincere or for photo-ops.


Rush is an epic troll of epic proportions. Literally. He plays a foaming madman on the radio, but it is in his best interests if Obama wins.

2012-10-30 06:41:02 PM  

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: Once again we have an instance where the derpiest of the derps are trying to project Bush's faults onto Obama, as if they feel that if only they can find an equivalent Obama match for every one of Bush's failures, they will finally...have success? Or something. I don't get it because I can't just flip a switch and make myself a schizoid asshole.

In any event, in this case they are trying to make this Obama's Katrina. Of course, the Katrina debacle was entirely due to Bush and Brownie sitting on their asses and not reacting quickly or thoroughly. Given that we already know that Obama reacted very quickly, and very thoroughly (based on statements from NJ governor and GOP blow-up mascot Chris Christie), the equivalency is non-existent.

Which surely just enrages the teahadists even more...


Exactly this. Obama's win destroys the entire foundation that the Republicans live by. He's a nonwhite Democratic president doing a great job in the face of Republican ignorance and lockstep. Not only that, he's doing this in the aftermath of the most destructive and ignorant Republican administration in living memory. Not only is there no way to really attack Obama without being called on their racism, they also are trying to find past to harken back to and find it populated by Republican failure: Nixon's corruption, Reagan's horrible financial policies, and both Bush wars on top of Dubya's horrific divisive politics and outright incompetence. And this is before the Democrats started cherrypicking fiscal conservatism for their own ends.

It is funny for the Republicans to admit how flawed Dubya was by constantly trying to compare it to Obama. They know he's a farkup and has doomed their party in the eyes of future voters. Right now they're just clawing onto a dream of America they helped destroy with their obnoxious politics. Even if it means enjoying the deaths of a few dozen people, just as long as their America has a chance of lasting just a few more years.

Being a Republican is just pathetic to anybody in today's world with a shred of dignity and self-worth.

I have to say I'm very pleasantly and genuinely surprised we haven't yet seen an article from some derpmonger saying exactly this.


As a preface, nothing I am about to say should be construed as to imply that the mayors and governors of the places in the path of Sandy, or the president of the United States, have not done their duty to their people. It appears that every logical preparation was made, and we should be glad that this is winding down with as few casualties as there have been.

Before Sandy hit, someone who lived in a more hurricane-prone portion of the country expressed the opinion that this storm was being disproportionally hyped because it was New York that was at risk. At the time I thought that was unfair, that the northeast had such a higher density of people and property that even a milder hurricane could do more harm there. But considering that this hurricane has killed dozens of people, while gulf coast states get hurricanes that kill hundreds and sometimes thousands...yes, I now think that this hurricane is getting more attention than some deadlier ones, and the fact that it hit the hubs of several media organizations and financial empires may have something to do with that.

NYC should be grateful that a hurricane that killed 38 people can be called "NY's worst storm ever." Other cities have seen much worse.

Wallstreet is shut down, New York, one of the largest economies in the world is at a stand still, international travel is affected, and the people of the city can't get around because the farking subway system flooded.

gilgigamesh: Nabb1: 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.

I sat my wife down to watch BTILC and introduced it, in my opinion, as the last movie that ever needed to be made, period. That Hollywood should have just shut down and gone dark afterward, since nothing would be able to top it, ever.

He really doesn't have a stake in it at all (other than his mansions), if he were some elected official he would at least have a reason to be there. And him just being there draws away resources that the area needs...


yes but that's the point - the Republicans don't WANT Obama to be seen doing his job. hell, they REALLY don't want Obama to be seen as effective either. it is the GOP position that Obama should fail in all things. Even if that means US citizens will be hurt in the process. Limbaugh was in effect saying that those people who were harmed by the storm (either by loss of life or property) were 'acceptable losses' just so long as Obama pays a political price for it.

that's what's so disgusting about the modern incarnation of the GOP. nothing matters to them except winning. if US citizens have to die well then so be it. acceptable losses and all that.

Noam Chimpsky: Millions of people have died during Obama's presidency. People die. Probably more people would have died in that region if the storm hadn't hit, so it was a net life saver.

Actually, it didn't. The GOP screwed the pooch so hard that they couldn't take it for a walk without having a soothing cream handy, that a Democrat was going to win the White House no matter what.

The Dems crushed the GOP in 2006 and the GOP responded by refusing to admit that they made any mistakes. Voters resented it and they got even crushiered in 2008. We're lucky John Edwards didn't win the nomination because, like I said, it was just a Democrat's year.

We will probably need to deny them of control for a decade or two, at least before they start being deterred from all their shiat-farkery and reform into a party or parties that function, as opposed to the mess of various evils (for example the way that people vote against their economic well being for intolerant social policies, or the republican noise machine, the nazi methods of repeating lies and attacking strengths, painting enemies with their own flaws, systematic manipulation of elections, just to name a few) that the republican party is today, to say nothing of that ad-hoc hateball called the tea party.

Imagine an America who's conservatives are reasonable, tolerant, and able to compromise. Now think about how long it will take to get there.

quizzical: pciszek: yes, I now think that this hurricane is getting more attention than some deadlier ones, and the fact that it hit the hubs of several media organizations and financial empires may have something to do with that.

NYC should be grateful that a hurricane that killed 38 people can be called "NY's worst storm ever." Other cities have seen much worse.

Wallstreet is shut down, New York, one of the largest economies in the world is at a stand still, international travel is affected, and the people of the city can't get around because the farking subway system flooded. There have been fewer lives lost but the amount of property damage is going to be epic.

Bloody William: 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.


That's nice. Limbonehead not only gloats over Obama having to work, he takes time out to make fun of Jerseyites, as if because Snooki lives there, their problems aren't really real.

OK, couple points here:

(1) A death toll of 38 in an area with that concentrated a population means that there have been deadlier light drizzles. I don't think this storm is really pushing us much beyond what we're prepared for, media hyperbole aside. The East coast isn't as consistently prepared for the weather going batshiat as the gulf coast, but neither are they stupid.

(2) The president jetting around literally making sure citizens are being taken care of is only a campaign suspension in the official sense. Not exactly going to be a huge hit to his numbers that he's doing a highly visible and unarguably beneficial part of his job in the lead-up to the election.

//Not saying that he's doing it as a publicity stunt, it is in fact his job and he's got a history of taking that seriously. Just saying that Obama is likely not too worried that a few days of not campaigning are going to kill him in this case.

1. True, but the death toll isn't really what caught people off guard. What was surprising was the power outages and the storm surge into the subways.

2. Disasters have the potential to be either incredibly good or incredibly bad for Presidents, depending on how they respond. A weak response can irreparably harm a President's image, if you know who, I mean what I mean.

Like a goddamn broken record.

benghazi is the GOP's 'issue of choice'. I have no idea why they think this is going to win Romney the election but...meh. let 'em rant.


They think it is Obama's Iranian hostage crisis, and Romney as their Reagan..

However, by bringing up Libya, do they look a little foolish, considering the last big act of violence towards Americans by Libya was Pan Am 103. A state sponsored terrorist attack that killed 200 Americans, and Reagan and Bush I could not successfully extradite the attackers back to the U.S.

In fact, Shrub tried to make an alliance with Gaddafi, who okayed that attack. 

The GOP. All hat, no cattle.

Gyrfalcon: Jim_Callahan: OK, couple points here:

(1) A death toll of 38 in an area with that concentrated a population means that there have been deadlier light drizzles. I don't think this storm is really pushing us much beyond what we're prepared for, media hyperbole aside. The East coast isn't as consistently prepared for the weather going batshiat as the gulf coast, but neither are they stupid.

(2) The president jetting around literally making sure citizens are being taken care of is only a campaign suspension in the official sense. Not exactly going to be a huge hit to his numbers that he's doing a highly visible and unarguably beneficial part of his job in the lead-up to the election.

//Not saying that he's doing it as a publicity stunt, it is in fact his job and he's got a history of taking that seriously. Just saying that Obama is likely not too worried that a few days of not campaigning are going to kill him in this case.

1. True, but the death toll isn't really what caught people off guard. What was surprising was the power outages and the storm surge into the subways.

2. Disasters have the potential to be either incredibly good or incredibly bad for Presidents, depending on how they respond. A weak response can irreparably harm a President's image, if you know who, I mean what I mean.


The immediate death toll might be under 100. But the long-term (as in next few months to a year) could be severe. All that water will contribute to a number of diseases in the same way that the WTC destruction caused respiratory problems for a large number of people, with the total count not determinable for many years to come.

Gyrfalcon: 1. True, but the death toll isn't really what caught people off guard. What was surprising was the power outages and the storm surge into the subways.


Yeah, that's kind of the downside of living in an area where big storm systems happen but are infrequent. Like I said, not quite as prepared as the people on the gulf coast, where not having the supplies to go a few days without power during storm season is viewed as almost criminally irresponsible.

Still, largely we saw this coming and got our ducks in a row fast. So the unrelenting media panic is somewhat undeserved. Even the word "disaster" is maybe being misapplied a bit. It's not like Katrina or even Joplin, the coast is taking a pounding but it's not outright getting rolled in unexpected ways or anything.

Though, all that said, this has sort of highlighted the need to have the northeast actually enforce building standards for once. Which, y'know, they won't do, as an 80 degree summer killed like 50 people a couple years ago up there and no lessons were learned.

El_Perro: 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.


I recall McCain demanding that all campaigning stop while they go to Washington over the crisis, then spending most of that time continuing to campaign.
 
2012-10-30 10:58:53 PM  

Empty Matchbook: Remember: Obama "abandoning" his campaign to actually be presidential and deal with a crisis in a way befitting his office is going to make voters LESS LIKELY to vote for him because he's not "actively campaigning."


You might be right. But in the end, it makes me respect President Obama even more.
This is a trivial choice for him. You do your job. Period. If you lose the election, because you did the right thing and did your job, then 1) you didnt deserve the reelection and 2) god help us as a nation.

In the end, I think that Sandy pretty much nails his reelection. People with hearts will be able to look and see that he is the man that they want when the shiat hits the fan. Not some toad who is worried about photo-ops.

I agree on (2), but I don't see the logic at all in (1) -- "Not many people died, so it couldn't have been that bad." There's a lot of be said about being prepared for emergencies, and NYC has been almost obsessed with disaster readiness since the first WTC bombing ~20 years ago. The city smartly shut down public transportation (which is a way of life in parts of the city) to keep people at home and protect their assets in safe places. The mayor's been great about communication and prioritizing resources in getting the city up and running again.

Oh, I dunno...Like I said last night on a different thread, lessons are learned and changes implemented; it's just that the process is continual and always lags behind any evolving situation. So, for instance, lessons learned and changes made from Katrina prevented those problems from cropping up during Sandy--but anything that didn't occur then were not foreseen and hence not planned for, and thus are problems today. They'll be fixed before the next major storm and won't be issues, but there will be something that didn't happen now that will become a problem then...and so on, and so on.

Just like out here in CA: They fixed everything for a lateral-slip fault, then we get hit with a quake from a vertical-thrust fault and it's got different dynamic force; they fix for that and we get a horizontal-thrust fault...and so it goes. Then you have (both here and back where you are) new people moving in who have no clue what to do in whatever kind of emergency is common there--West Coasters who aren't prepared for snow or East Coasters who don't know what to do in earthquakes. Then they die. It's always like that in catastrophes. But things are usually better than last time.

But you know what? This is Obama's Katrina! Th two storms were very different, of course, but in terms of impact they were in the same league. And how did Obama's Katrina differ from Bush's Katrina? Well, it's still too early to say, of course - theres still plenty of time for an epic cock-up - but so far, the response to Sandy has been quick, appropriate, and well organized. In other words, everything that Bush's Katrina was not.

That wasn't palladiate's point. Palladiate's point is that gloating over misfortune and 'the hand of god' is not exclusive to one party. Death tolls are not what matter; seeing opportunity and 'proof the fates love us' in misfortune is what matters.

And what has he done besides the same damn thing every president does? They all send in Fema and say they will cut red tape. The only difference in outcome is the people in the disaster area. If they are capable, they will dig themselves out with local support and federal money.

If they are incapable they will sit in their FEMA trailers and expect a forever handout. FEMA is actually very small, more of a coordination bureaucracy than anything else.

When severe weather devastated a small Ky community last summer, local people marshaled support and got food and clothes and shelter to the effected before the President even acknowledged it had happened. The red cross showed up looking for donations and found locals already laundering donated clothes and packing care boxes and coordinating relief. Since no one was sitting around complaining the press packed up and left. Story over.

At least Rush wasn't being bi-polar.

Your both funny. The number of Iraqis killed in the actual invasion....the part that everyone who supported the ouster of Saddam is morally responsible for.....which includes hundreds of US members of congress and a majority of the polled population.....were pretty small. The inflated numbers of deaths come from the rebuilding phase. Attempting to sort out the responsible parties in that clusterfark would be stupid and more of a waste of time than asking you why you are obsessed with prayer and buttholes. If you only attempt to parse it into four sides then the US is only responsible for the deaths its soldiers inflicted in the rebuilding, not the suicide bombing deaths or the civil war. Which were again pretty small compared to the whole.

What bush did not do was implement policies which targeted civilians or relied on civilian deaths as a way of measuring a supposed law enforcement program as in fast and furious.

Deaths from warfare can be bad, but if there is more than one side, blame must be shared. The Mexicans who were killed with Obamas weapons that walked might not even have any connection to any violence. Like the party of teenagers who were slaughtered.

Remember all those legends of evil military tests on blacks in the cold war.....? Is there really any difference between poisoning a black soldier for science.......and sending weapons into mexico in the hands of the worst of the worst to see who gets killed and where? Logistically yes, morally no.

namatad: Empty Matchbook: Remember: Obama "abandoning" his campaign to actually be presidential and deal with a crisis in a way befitting his office is going to make voters LESS LIKELY to vote for him because he's not "actively campaigning."

You might be right. But in the end, it makes me respect President Obama even more.
This is a trivial choice for him. You do your job. Period. If you lose the election, because you did the right thing and did your job, then 1) you didnt deserve the reelection and 2) god help us as a nation.

In the end, I think that Sandy pretty much nails his reelection. People with hearts will be able to look and see that he is the man that they want when the shiat hits the fan. Not some toad who is worried about photo-ops.


I was in full-on sarcasm mode since THIS seems to be the narrative. I mean I just saw a headline saying "When is the right time to restart the campaigns?" with pictures of Obama and, for some reason, Romney. Since that implies he ever STOPPED.

archichris: Pincy: archichris: ndubyaj: The death toll is more than 38. People who aren't American still count as people.

Dont forget the 300 mexicans who died as a result of Obamas 'fast and furious' operation.

And the 4 americans in Libya who died while killing over 60 Jihadists while obama sat and watched.

and the thousands of Military service personnel in Afghanistan who have died under his command with no clear path to victory and no right to defend themselves.

And the afghan civilians he has killed with predator drone strikes by accident.

Nah, if there wasnt a chance to look presidential and score some polling points he wouldnt even notice a storm that killed 40 or more people.

Unless it was on someone elses watch.....Like Bush....then Obama would be the first in front of a camera yelling about blacks drowning in New Orleans. Nevermind the fact that Democrats were and always have been in charge of New Orleans, and left the poor in the 9th ward to die because it was too much effort to force them to evacuate.

So I'm assuming you haven't had a good night's sleep in years since you are obviously distraught over the hundreds of thousands of innocent people GWB killed in Iraq?

There were quite a few civilian deaths in Iraq/Afghanistan when bush was in office, but rather than call it for what it is they were labeled insurgents or terrorists. And why does everyone keep bringing up the embassy attack? Yes it is tragic, but in conflict-ridden countries, embassies do get attacked. During practically every president's terms embassies have been attacked. It is an unfortunate consequence of being active in the world.

Furthermore Fast and Furious, while a colossal fark-up cannot solely be laid at Obama's feet. Look at some pictures of confiscated cartel weapons and money; they can get weaponry with or without the help of incompetent federal agencies. It wasn't very well thought out, but at the end of the day the intention was to see how weapons get trafficked from the U.S. into the hands of the cartels.

...this is the talking point? That Obama canceled his campaign stops to go be the President? Wow, what hydrocephalic rape-baby with half a coat hanger sticking out of his head over at the RNC banged that one out?

I would have figured the talking point would be "Obama's only working overtime on hurricane relief because the election's a week away, and only cares so far as it will help get him re-elected".

archichris: Your both funny. The number of Iraqis killed in the actual invasion....the part that everyone who supported the ouster of Saddam is morally responsible for.....which includes hundreds of US members of congress and a majority of the polled population.....were pretty small. The inflated numbers of deaths come from the rebuilding phase. Attempting to sort out the responsible parties in that clusterfark would be stupid and more of a waste of time than asking you why you are obsessed with prayer and buttholes. If you only attempt to parse it into four sides then the US is only responsible for the deaths its soldiers inflicted in the rebuilding, not the suicide bombing deaths or the civil war. Which were again pretty small compared to the whole.


You seem to be forgetting one important point: HE LIED US INTO A FARKING WAR.

He and his lying-crony buddies are responsible for all the deaths because it didn't have to happen in the first place.

You don't get to create your own history.

Jackson Herring: Bloody William: Eat all the dicks, you shiathead.

By the way you might not have gotten the word yet but the new thing is "go fart on a dick"


I dunno. The phrase lacks a certain. . .zaz. It smacks of something a little kid would say to get giggles from his friends or to get attention from an unsuspecting adult. There's no scale do it. I mean "eat a bag of dicks" suggests a certain unpleasant volume. And of course, actually eating a dick is somewhat unusual, to put it mildly.. What is the big deal about farting on a dick? Could happen any time you tickle someone on your lap. Oooo, a dick was in some sort of proximity to an anus when flatus occurred. Big whoop.

No. I don't see that phrase getting much traction. I find it unpoetic, bland, and lacking in imagery.

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?


You forget that Isaac hunkered down and pissed all over New Orleans for three straight days. The power was off for five days. She was no Katrina, but it definitely sucked balls.

As for, "Yay, dead people!," this has always disgusted me. A STORM IS NOT TO BE POLITICIZED. These are real people with real problems. That anyone chooses to mine for political capital on the backs of the suffering disgusts me. Yes, Democrats did it too in 2005.

The media and politics in this country are just off the hook. Let's not extend our hands in the spirit of cooperation. Let's make political hay!

Dicks.

Do they know that running out the clock is what teams do when they're ahead? Mitt's taking a knee while he's still down by a touchdown.

Sh*t, you should spend a weekend in New Orleans. Every farking night I hear the gunshots in the distance. The good news is that it's very localized. In other words, if you're not in the 'hood trying to score some heroin, chances are you won't die.

While I applaud the results of Guilliani in terms of crime, I still think it was a bit heavy-handed. I caught Times Square at the tail end of her slimy glory, in the early 90s. I was 18 and, yes, I paid for sex (what the fark else was I going to do? Tavern on the Green?).

I think it was unfair to rip him for asking his supporters to take down the yard signs lest they blow around and hurt somebody. It was the right thing to do.


Romney did that? Really??

2012-10-31 08:03:57 AM  

Jim_Callahan: Gyrfalcon: 1. True, but the death toll isn't really what caught people off guard. What was surprising was the power outages and the storm surge into the subways.


Yeah, that's kind of the downside of living in an area where big storm systems happen but are infrequent. Like I said, not quite as prepared as the people on the gulf coast, where not having the supplies to go a few days without power during storm season is viewed as almost criminally irresponsible.

Still, largely we saw this coming and got our ducks in a row fast. So the unrelenting media panic is somewhat undeserved. Even the word "disaster" is maybe being misapplied a bit. It's not like Katrina or even Joplin, the coast is taking a pounding but it's not outright getting rolled in unexpected ways or anything.

Though, all that said, this has sort of highlighted the need to have the northeast actually enforce building standards for once. Which, y'know, they won't do, as an 80 degree summer killed like 50 people a couple years ago up there and no lessons were learned.


I'm not sure what building standards you are referring to, or what that has to do with a response to a public health issue like a heat wave. Sounds like you're casting about for things to criticize.

Cities like New York, and utilities like Con Edison, are painfully aware of the need to shore up infrastructure against the kinds of damage that will come from higher mean sea level + greater storm surge in the near future ("near" as defined in terms of infrastructure planning). Hell, the NYC office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability - part of the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management - even now has an RFP out for updated information on storm surge scenarios that builds on a 2009 report they commissioned. The main problem is money. I can't find the source I read for this, but it was pointed out that Con Ed knows it needs to invest about $250M at a minimum to relocate its assets out of reach of higher potential storm flood levels, but they can't afford to do it all at once, so they are doing it piecemeal.

There is also the sad fact that while cities, especially on the coasts, are well aware that they need to be planning infrastructure changes to adapt to climate change, the derpitude of their residents and/or their state gov't may mean that they cannot plan for adaptation as readily as they might like. I once gave a talk about sea level rise hazards to some nice folks representing various (largely Republican) townships on the south shore of Long Island, and while they were eager for information, they also were clearly looking for ways to not have to refer to any "bleeding heart liberal ideas" to their constituents. I imagine some of those folks are reconsidering the need to be more blunt so that the residents will understand the threat, and want to support efforts to do something about it.

I also don't get why people are so resistant to referring to what's happened as a disaster. Certainly the people on the Jersey shore or Breezy Point would beg to differ. And the fact that the NYC metro region isn't as crippled as NO was after Katrina should be considered a plus, not a talking point on which to minimize the storm's effects. Don't forget, the tragedy of New Orleans was NOT caused directly by Katrina at all, but rather the failure of a levee that *should* have held, given the type of storm it was built to withstand. That's a different situation compared to that of NY-NJ and Sandy.

fireside68: pciszek: palladiate: Nabb1: 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 have to say I'm very pleasantly and genuinely surprised we haven't yet seen an article from some derpmonger saying exactly this.

As a preface, nothing I am about to say should be construed as to imply that the mayors and governors of the places in the path of Sandy, or the president of the United States, have not done their duty to their people. It appears that every logical preparation was made, and we should be glad that this is winding down with as few casualties as there have been.

Before Sandy hit, someone who lived in a more hurricane-prone portion of the country expressed the opinion that this storm was being disproportionally hyped because it was New York that was at risk. At the time I thought that was unfair, that the northeast had such a higher density of people and property that even a milder hurricane could do more harm there. But considering that this hurricane has killed dozens of people, while gulf coast states get hurricanes that kill hundreds and sometimes thousands...yes, I now think that this hurricane is getting more attention than some deadlier ones, and the fact that it hit the hubs of several media organizations and financial empires may have something to do with that.

NYC should be grateful that a hurricane that killed 38 people can be called "NY's worst storm ever." Other cities have seen much worse.

I no longer feel badly for thinking this all day.


You should. You're both terrible human beings.
