A Patriotic Response To The "Clown Prince;" 11/03/2012
District of Corruption
November 3, 2012
This weekend, millions of our fellow Americans are still picking up
the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. I toured New Jersey on Wednesday with Governor Christie, and
witnessed some of the terrible devastation firsthand. It’s heartbreaking.
Families have lost loved ones. Entire communities have been wiped away. Even
some of the first responders who repeatedly put themselves in harm’s way to
bravely save the lives of others have suffered losses of their own. Today, I ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. And as
President, I promise them this: your country will be there for you for as long
as it takes to recover and rebuild. Throughout the week, I’ve been in constant contact with governors
and mayors in the affected areas, who are doing an excellent job in
extraordinarily difficult circumstances. And we owe the first responders and
National Guardsmen who have been working around the clock our deepest
gratitude. Our number one concern has been making sure that affected states and
communities have everything they need to respond to and recover from this
storm. From the earliest hours, I ordered that resources be made available
to states in the path of the storm as soon as they needed them. And I
instructed my team not to let red tape and bureaucracy get in the way of solving
problems – especially when it came to making sure local utilities could restore
power as quickly as possible.
[What I'm not telling you: Once again, Allah has come through for the devout muslims. First--just when I needed it most--he came through with a natural disaster withwhich I can look "presidential." Did you check out all those photos we set up with New Jersey Governor Christie? Did I look presidential or what? I am--just a little bit--pissed at Mayor Bloomberg of New York City; who is this little twerp to tell me and my minions to stay out of his city?!? Doesn't he know I need all the photo ops--with all the 'victims'--I can get? We missed out on lot'sa criers that would have looked good in re-immaculation ads going into this last week of campaigning.
Have YOU ever tried to hug a 400-pound man? That's no easy task; a sight that's truly worth the price of admission!! Governor Christie reluctantly allowed the photo and video ops you saw on television and the internet. We had to promise him lots more FEMA financial and physical aid than he'd have gotten normally gotten through the national disaster aid application process.
Those first-responders; those National Guardsmen you've seen in the news reports? That's what they do; they give the last measure of dedication; the last measure of assistance to those in need. This is what they do when asked, day in-day out. New York activated 1,000 guardsmen then bolstered the number by an additional 2,300; Pennsylvania-1,500; New Jersey-many Air Guardsmen for rescue, assessment flying missions.
As has been noted in several blogs--including this one--I've essentially admitted the regime's policies over the past four years; socialist, communist policies of every democRATic administration are--as "Ronaldus-Magnus" so accurately phrased it--are not the solution but are the problem. As evidenced by the waivers to my policies that are necessary for this response action, all the EPA, all the Department of Transportation, actually every regulation; every executive order I've demanded are revealed as nothing more than obstacles to good governance!! Are you aware that to protect the few union workers in the oil transportation business those idiots in the 1920 Congress passed The Jones Act. That legislation says that refined oil for U.S. delivery must be transported on U.S.-flagged ships, manned by U.S. crews (Read: UNION Crews!). We had to issue a waiver to The Jones Act to facilitate the delivery of motor and heating fuel to the Northeast coast ports; how rediculuous is that?!?]
Before the storm hit, FEMA pre-staged emergency response teams from
North Carolina to Maine, and deployed resources like food, water, and generators
up and down the coast. As the storm passed, thousands of FEMA personnel were on
the ground responding to those in need. And by midweek, the Department of
Defense was ready to fly in cargo planes that could be loaded with trucks and
equipment to help local power companies get up and running faster. But recovery will be a long, hard road for many communities.
There’s a lot of work ahead. If you’ve been directly impacted by this storm and need temporary
assistance getting back on your feet, you can call 1-800-621-FEMA, or apply at
DisasterAssistance.gov. If you know folks who are still without power, please
spread the word and let them know. And if you don’t live in an affected area and want to help,
supporting the Red Cross is the best and fastest way. This week, we have been humbled by nature’s destructive power. But
we’ve been inspired as well. For when the storm was darkest, the heroism of our
fellow citizens shone brightest. The nurses and doctors at NYU Medical Center who evacuated fragile
newborns, carrying some down several flights of stairs. The firefighters in Queens who battled an inferno from flooded
streets, and rescued people from an apartment building by boat. The Coast Guard crews from North Carolina who saved a sinking ship
in stormy seas – and their rescue swimmer who, when he reached those in need,
said, “I’m Dan, and I hear you guys need a ride.” That’s who we are. We’re Americans. When times are tough, we’re
tougher. We put others first. We go that extra mile. We open our hearts and
our homes to one another, as one American family. We recover, we rebuild, we
come back stronger – and together we will do that once more.
[What I'm not telling you: I'm not so sure I appreciate Mayor Bloomberg's endorsement for a second immaculation; because of my stance regarding 'global warming-climate change....' How idiotic is that?!? But.... I digress. Speaking of the Idiot-Bloomberg: The New York Marathon will go on?!? Really?!? All the assets; all the hotel room; all the manpower diverted for the participants?!? Really?!? Thankfully, he listened to someone with some sense; he cancelled the run.
As I may have mentioned before, this has been a great opportunity for me to demonstrate a 'foreign' appearance: that of looking and acting presidential. It doesn't happen often! Remember past presidents? It's difficult to find a photo that shows President Reagan in the White House WITHOUT a suit and tie! Even entering and exiting Air Force One, Marine One, the presidential limousine, without a suit and tie. Me? A totally different story; totally different photos. Rare is it that I appear presidential, let alone act presidenital, let alone govern presidentially!!
As we go into this last weekend before the general election there are several things NOT to think about:
The 14+% actual unemployment rate;
The 47,113,096 persons on foodstamps;
The $16,042,000,000,000 (TRILLIONS) national debt that will take four generations to satisfy, if NO INCREASE from this point, forward;
The 23, 000,000+ Americans un- or under-employed;
The ficticious 5.5 million jobs created in past four years; more jobs on January 19, 2009 than exist today;
Circumvention of the Congress with my liberal use of executive orders;
Payoffs to labor union with the federal purchase of Government Motors;
Payoffs to supporters, donors with federal grants and loans to approximately 30 FAILED green-energy companies;
Need more reasons to vote for experience; to vote for a proven business track record??]
