    No, you're right. They warrant MORE attention....They certainly cost more, and there are more of them.



    Oh, I am within my own context, it is you making excuses for "the One".....



    Master Class liar.....I have family that lost everything from the Rockaway's....They haven't received anything other than $1500. emergency housing stipend....That is since it happened how many months ago? You don't know what you are talking about. Did you even watch the interview with McGrath? He disagrees with you.
    I've had disagreements with Obama concerning Afghanistan (the surge, drone attacks, and rendition), but his generals did claim that even if they got all they wanted, he surge could fail. So, that always has to be considered.

    And, no, your context is about the difference and not Obama's overall record. You limited it to vacations, but quickly moved away, leaving the context you set up.

    Yes, every disaster has had people lose things and have to wait way too long. Nothing new there. But we're so eking of a comparison with Katrina, which had UHC larger problems than that.

    Says a member of the party that has no standard at all.

    Meaning you concede the point, lacking any coherent rebuttal.

    Not at all, but I am trying to watch the Vikings/Packers at the same time so my attention is split...Here, I'll put it in a nutshell for you, if you would answer a couple of questions....K?

    1. Is there anything you think Obama has done worse than Bush?

    2. Is there anything you think would get you to change your mind on question 1?

    Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, once considered among the nation's most powerful and feared lawmakers, was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for a scheme to influence elections that already cost him his job, leadership post and millions of dollars in legal fees. The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay, a Houston-area Republican, on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for using a political action committee to illegally send corporate donations to Texas House candidates in 2002. Prosecutors said DeLay will likely be free for months or even years as his appeal makes it through the Texas court system.

    The whole thing is exactly what Dave Chappele exemplified in this bit called "Tron Carter's Law & Order". Two different justice system's indeed.
    Sounds about right. As the Current administration gets away with dumping billions into a set up "green energy " corporations AND dumping billions from the stimulus into Public Sector Unions so it could be transfered back to Democrat re-election campaigns AND Obama lying about some video being the cause of the murder of our Diplomat TEN days after the fact YOU clowns focus on some long gone ex-politician.

    Yep, your really setting the standards for law abiding politicians.

    So am I.

    1. No, but that's not saying much. I will say this, for a short time Bush was very good after 9/11. Then he lost his mind.

    2. Don't know. It would to be specific on a specific issue, but I'm always open to new information and/or a well reasoned argument.

    However, our original issue was the press and you asked a question concerning a vacationing president. Not overall performance. You left that question rather quickly.

    We all thank you for your non-input on the topic.

    I'm a member of a political party? What? Since when? When did I join a party? I was unaware.
