I'd like to thank all of the farkers who have helped to politicize a natural desaster. It's those of you in the community that help me to remember why no one can have an actual discussion in this country anymore.

Uranus Is Huge!: karnal: Uranus Is Huge!: karnal: Wag the dog, Mr President......wag the dog.

Are you implying that Fartbamao has a weather machine to go along with his time machine. Because, 'wagging the dog' implies he created the tornado to deflect from his "scandals".

In the future, you can just post, "I'm bad at using words. Obama bad." Save yourself the strain that comes with squeezing out your insight.

Not implying he created the weather - just that he is taking full political advantage of it to purposely divert attention.

To "wag the dog" implies that Obama is using an event of lesser significance to divert attention from something of greater significance. So please, why don't you explain how the president going on tv and asking congress for relief appropriations is wagging the dog. What is of greater importance to Americans today?


A bunch of pretend scandals, that's what!

I hope he uses a generous smattering of the words "welfare," "government money," "social justice," "FEMA," etc. when promising them aid.

Frankly, Obama just needs to do a 3 line statement and call it a day.

"The good citizens of Oklahoma elected Tom Colburn and many others just like him as their representative. Given that Oklahoma, as well as the majority of republican states, are leeches to the federal system and contribute far less than they get, I'm announcing that we will not be sending any federal monies or other assistance. Pull up your bootstraps, good day, and good luck."

Except that would be really f*cking stupid. Sorry, but even if the President spends 364 days eating Republican sh*t because of racism, ideology, politics or whatever, Oklahomans are just as American as everyone else, and deserve help just like people in Joplin and New Jersey did.

fireclown: I'm not entirely sure why a president has to make a speech about a natural disaster.  I know it sounds crass, but there isn't a whole lot to say, and the big speechifiyin' takes up resources that could be better used in actually sorting out the damage.


I mostly agree, but he has to say something, or he looks like he doesn't care. This applies to any president - it's mostly showmanship, but it comes with the job.

What he shouldn't do is make a visit to tour the damage - not yet. The damage is obvious. The people of OKC need water and blankets and food, and they don't need a supply plane in a holding pattern because AF1 is on approach.

Let the mayor and governor do their thing.
 
2013-05-21 10:37:23 AM
Has Obama called the tornado an "act of God" yet? No, because he wants to use this disaster as another example of the "global warming" hoax. And I heard he will confiscate all the guns in Moore because people no longer have home to protect so there is no need for firearms.

I think that we can agree that he do a short speech (because there isn't a lot to say other than "this is awful", "please donate to the red cross" and whatnot) from the Rose Garden.  And maybe tour the place in a few weeks once the really urgent emergency work is sorted out.

verbaltoxin: Oklahomans are just as American as everyone else, and deserve help just like people in Joplin and New Jersey did.


So make sure that we cut a few programs in those areas to pay for them, like the asshats wanted for Joplin and New Jersey relief.

Until we make their supporters feel the full pain of the policies these folks want to impose, they will keep reelecting them.

I don't think this scandal can touch Obama.  The true question is: When did Hillary know about these tornados, and why wasn't more done?  I don't think anyone can miss that this tornado had a lot of water with it.  This just may end up going down in history as Watergate.

/stay safe Oklahomans, awful shiat out there. :/

I disagree. The good citizens of Oklahoma have decided to opt out of participating as a part of the United States, given their endless filibusters via Colburn. They want to be independent? Fine, but fark em when those leeches have their hands out, again.
