Comments on: Sandy clouds the election’s final act Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:27:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: sylvan Fri, 02 Nov 2012 08:26:16 +0000 The tale that Romney was surging before the storm might make GOPers feel better, but as with many GOPer explanations, it is very short on supporting data. The attempts at vilifying Christie and Bloomberg because they expressed appreciation for the tremendous assistance offered by President Obama and FEMA, shows how far to the right the GOP has run. The calls for FEMA to be defunded and its functions shipped to the states is stupid and mean-spirited, and increases costs, even if the full budget is divided among states, since they will have less volume purchasing power than a federal fund. It is time for modern Americans to reclaim our country from the hate spewing far right reaches of the GOP. A significant number of GOP have left the planet of reason and fact, best illuminated by their current top two candidates who shift positions and fake photo ops as their claims to fame.
