    While you blame the floods to Obama, Bachmann blame the floods on God's anger, I would like to know which one sound more rational.

    Everybody is telling this President what to say or do but will never say anything good about him as a human being. It is pathetic he is going to Jersey he should be going to Vermont how do you know he is not going.

    Well we will see what Governor Christie says he is one of the GOP;s that have said government should not intrude in their lives now it is a different story they need Fema. He is going to be the GOP worst nightmare because he just said today that they needed help and he didn't want to hear about this deficit mess. MY THIS IS A different tune.

    Dee; the GOP/Teapartyers can't fix their envious, biggoted, hate-ridden mouths to fit OBAMA and 'good' in the same sentence! SAD..they're just a bunch of biased, hateful, disgraceful Americans, who call themselves patriots and loyal to their country; who for the sake of an OBAMA failure, which they've publicly announced they hope for; with some promising to see to it, they're willing to let all of America, mainly the poor and the middleclass suffer and slide on down into the rabbit hole of 'OZ'! DANGEROUS!
