Exactly. I know we're not supposed to talk about it here but Sununu is a jerk.

I guess here's my questions about all this: why exactly does it matter one way or another if black people are siding with a black candidate? White people vote for white candidates all the time, is it always because they're white?

I love the way people always assume the reasons behind why someone supports a candidate or party. It's like CNN and their ridiculous thing recently about how women are more likely to vote liberally when they're ovulating or whatever it was they said. Couldn't possibly be that a woman just happens to like their general platform, and could come up with a logical explanation for their stances, no, it has to be for some other weird reason beyond their control. Powell could be supporting Obama because he agrees with his stances, but no, he's black and Obama's black, so naturally let's assume that's the biggest reason he's showing his support.

I know why I'm voting the way I do. And other people know why they're voting the way they do. And I think it ultimately should be left at that. All the presumptions people make about why people vote for someone can get really ridiculous sometimes.

This has to be one of the funniest things I've seen this election. I'm not sure what's funnier, the video or the interview and his explanation as to why the newborn looks like a 1 year old.

Will Trump take the bait?

REALLY?


Huffington Post

Former FEMA boss Michael Brown is critical of President Obama's hurricane response

Michael Brown, the former FEMA director infamously praised by President George W. Bush for doing a "heckuva job" during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, told a local paper that President Barack Obama acted too quickly in mobilizing relief for Superstorm Sandy.

"Here's my concern," Brown told Denver's Westword on Monday, suggesting that the official response was actually making people complacent. "It's premature [when] the brunt of the storm won't happen until later this afternoon."

Obama declared states of emergency all along East Coast states in the path of Sandy on Sunday, well before the storm hit, allowing federal resources to start flowing where governors thought they would be needed. FEMA and local responders were able to pre-position a lot of the material being drawn upon now.

Obama also held a press conference warning people to pay careful attention to the storm.

"This is a serious and big storm," Obama said after meeting with FEMA officials and talking to governors Sunday. "And my first message is to all the people across the Eastern seaboard, Mid-Atlantic, going north, that you need to take this very seriously."

Brown suggested Obama was just trying to look good.

"He probably figured Sunday was a good day to do a press conference," Brown said in his interview.

He also thought Obama's response contrasted poorly to his response to the deadly attacks on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which the U.S. ambassador and three others died. "One thing he's gonna be asked is, why did he jump on this so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in ... Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas?" Brown said.

The whole interview is at Westword.

From INDY's source:

according to statistics compiled by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.
The fact is food stamps were growing before Obama.


Food stamp growth started before Obama took office - Think Tanked - The Washington Post

Lets make a deal: Obama should stop complaining about how much of the economy is Bush's fault if the GOP will stop blaming him for problems created by the Bush administration.

Deal?

I can take that deal once anyone from any side admits that the housing bubble pop has bill clinton's fingerprints all over it.

I think the whole "Fuck this, they both suck" attitude is a cop out, personally. No one is asking you to actively like one party. Just pick the one that's better.

The most important question: who do you want nominating SC justices?
