Last estimates for damage caused by Super Storm Hurricane Sandy place all damages somewhere between $10 Billion and $20 Billion. Every month since Bernanke announced the Federal Reserve's intention to purchase $20 Billion a month of what amount to bad bonds, those purchases have equalled or exceeded all the damage done by this "once in a century Super Storm." That puts the enormity of those Federal Reserve purchases into perspective, doesn;t it! Now we read that the federal government has also jumped its hiring of new workers. Presumably that has some impact on unemployment data, right?

As powerful as the President may be, he cannot create a hurricane or predict the damage it will do As a life-long resident of Louisiana I have been through more hurricanes than I care to count. The President must act quickly when one hits anywhere.
How much or how little did Obama say about how he will deal with Global Warming in four more years? If it is "the MOST important issue that will affect our children and grandchildren" (even before the National Debt?) why wasn't it on his agenda?
Perspycacious, there is no clear consensus that supports your beliefs. I am not saying you are wrong. I am saying that a lot of people have different priorities and Global Warming ranks way down the list for many people, the President & Congress.
