And therein lies the catch 22. If he makes a speech, people will complain its not necessary. If he doesn't make a speech, people will say he doesn't care.

dude, it's fark. We mock death and "scandals" and stupidity all the time, you know why? It's a coping mechanism for things like this and it acts as a way to keep ourselves sane by realizing that we're not all a bunch of retards. There's hope for humanity here. And I'm sorry you can't take a joke, but you can go wallow in sadness and depression because people died if you want, I'm gonna sit here and mock those who will do everything in their power to try and make anything a scandal.

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.

So what exactly would be an acceptable action for the president to take on the tornado, in your view?  Because it looks like you just want to complain about the president, regardless of what he does.

Quitting and moving back to Ghana would be acceptable to me.


I would "favorite" you with the label of "dishonest", but I have already done so due to a previous incident where you demonstrably lied, thus such a label would be redundant.

You are correct; President Obama is commenting on the disaster in Oklahoma only to distract from numerous scandals. No other President in United States history has issued statements following destructive and deadly weather occurrences.

It's all about motive, my dear dim.

And what is YOUR motive for believing that? Because you can't believe that Obama would act like a real human being? You want so bad for Obama to be evil that you've created a Bizarro version in your head and ascribe its characteristics to actions by Real Obama.

verbaltoxin: Johnny Swank: 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.


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.

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.

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?
