Obama on storm watch

  1. Rest easy men, Bro O is on the job. Cynical comments to many to list.

    Obama, mindful of his need to show command in crisis while in the final throes of a tough re-election campaign, met with federal emergency officials Sunday before flying to Florida that night ahead of a rally scheduled for Monday at noon. But the intensifying storm heading to the East Coast took priority, with the president signing emergency declarations for New England states in the middle of the night from his Orlando hotel room.

    By dawn the White House decided to call off the politicking.

    "Due to deteriorating weather conditions in the Washington area, the president will not attend today's campaign event in Orlando," spokesman Jay Carney said in a written statement. "The president will return to the White House to monitor the preparations for and early response to Hurricane Sandy."

    Maybe Obama should take a row boat out into the ocean to meet the storm head on and defeat it.
     
  6. "Obama, mindful of his need to show command in crisis while in the final throes of a tough re-election campaign"

    I just loved that quote. Command in crisis. Yep, that's what he's all about. I can think of four dead guys that would have a different opinion. Benghazi is where command was needed, not some silly ass storm which he has no control over, and relief will come with or without his dumb ass watching it unfold.

    Should read:

    "Due to deteriorating internal poll results in Florida, the president will not attend today's campaign event in Orlando," spokesman Jay Carney said in a written statement. "
     
  8. The U.S. National Hurricane Center has announced that it will change the name of Hurricane Sandy to Hurricane Full Employment. A spokesman said:

    "..... the thought of Full Employment bearing down on the East Coast ...... Umm...still working on this ......"

    :cool:
     
  9. WRONG STORM :D :D :D
     
  10. Hmmm, seems another President thought that very thing the last time a very big storm hit the US.
