      Nothing surprises me with Obama supporters anymore, either.

      Actually, nothing surprises me with humans, period. We are capable of some pretty stupid shit, for such an "advanced" species.

      I look at political elections, and I wonder how we ever invented the space shuttle.

    This isn't about Obama's handling of the Sandy disaster.
    It's about the right being out of their skulls pissed that they can't keep everyone's focus on Libya.
    Here's the clue:
    "In an interview with Denver Westword, Brown said, "One thing [President Obama's]  gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [Hurricane Sandy] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in ... Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas? Why was this so quick? ... At some point, somebody's going to ask that question."

    Yes, a lot of people (or maybe just a few who whine so loudly it sounds like a lot of people) are asking that question.
    Frankly, the question doesn't warrant any answer.

      MM, Can you believe this, wow...speaking of Lybia, I have a forum about the mideast that is truly amazing, the link didn't work so I posted the whole page because the article really shows how complicated this situation really is...I also left an article for you on the LIBOR thing and wondered if this was an update to that scandal...Yea, they are mad because Americans are coming together like we always do and blaming Obama for Lybia is easier than blaming him for a natural disaster lol

        Don't believe it, tammy.
        There are people out there who think Obama caused this storm just so he could look presidential in a crisis!

        Thanks for the LIBOR/LIBYA info!!

            LOL , Well, since Wall Street and the financial sector were clear "targets" it had to be a vote for Obama smile

    First, one can never react to a disaster fast enough. I have been very critical because Obama plays politics with disaster aid by being too slow or ignoring certain states. But that is a different subject.

    Now, let's look at the entire statement from this loser, yes I called him a loser for his actions during Katrina.:

    [i]"Brown said, "One thing [President Obama's]  gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [Hurricane Sandy] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in ... Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas? Why was this so quick? ... At some point, somebody's going to ask that question."[i/]

    He is not criticizing Obama for being to fast to react to Sandy, the statement infers the belief why did he react to Sandy in a quick manner but went to Las Vegas during the Benghazi incident. He is right, someone will ask that question, along with why did he skip the next 2 days intelligence briefings. .

    As for ads during this campaign, The Republican ads do not equate voting to losing your virginity, killing people, having kids cuss, or making kids sing a song blaming their parents for the destruction of th world for voting for Romney, or this beauty from moveon.org written and produced by Micheal Moore. I want you about the language and content before you view it.

      Both Campaign Ads have been disturbing to say the least, and as I have  said before, I watch none, the sad part is so many will vote on the lies potrayed in commercials...You know as well as I do Romneys ads are ever bit as disturbing, ads from his super pacs as well as the GOP...But to this statement from Brown, it is a desperate attempt to remind people of the spin of lies about Lybia, it's a backhanded compliment, and it is a disgusting attempt to politicize this tragic event. When the original 911 happened, people did not line up to blame Bush, the Democratic party did not commercialize bumbles or imperfections of his Administaration, he also was aware of a "threat," but our country joined together...The Democratic party did not come out to impeach our Commander in Chief and make our country look divided and stupid to the rest of the world as the GOP has. We DO NOT KNOW all of the details yet, and by our own standards a person is innoscent until proven guilty, but the GOP is trying to make our POTUS guilty in the court of public opinion, and is a desperate measure...I have a forum about the mideast; the link did not work because I had to register for the article so I copied over the entire article...If you have an opportunity, give it a read, it is eye opening as to the confusion present...who are the good guys, who are the bad guys? I have read R's desperate attempte to tie Obama to the Muslim Brotherhood, however, when you read this article you understand that the Muslim Brotherhood won the election as freedom fighters for democracy....These issues are much more complex than they are being painted to the American public.
