    Rewind the clock nine months, and bring all this out in the open then.

    I wonder what President Romney would be doing today.

    Obama and his minions (including the media) held out long enough, it appears.

    But too many cats got out of the bag. Now it's full-on legacy damage control.

    We can expect something from left field, if history is to be believed. Other countries are watching this, too, and some are sworn enemies. I just hope that whatever it is doesn't harm too many people, like an attack on our grid that has many scientists extremely concerned, for instance. That chaos would certainly divert everyone's attention to more immediate personal problems, IMO.

    Interestingly enough, my new endevour involves manufacturing equipment designed to provide backup power when the grid drops off. You're concern is rational.

    Of course, I haven't seen much evidence of willingness to bite the hand that feeds them. Seems to me, shorting out the grid stops the ability to communicate and coordinate. Without marching orders, I think the body wouldn't know what to do.

    Yep, most Americans have much better things to do than listen to what today's out of touch GOP has to say about anything.

    IMO, the communicating and coordinating has already long been accomplished, except perhaps for the underlings who we've seen don't matter much to anyone in authority anyway, except for their votes. There is a reason why millions of rounds of ammunition have been stockpiled by this administration, and no one has been told why this was done, to my knowledge, or who is going to have the authority to use said ammunition, but it probably won't be those who have ordered it stockpiled. They don't like guns!

    This is why the USA should spend a lot more money on defense against nuclear electromagnetic pulse weapons.

    Sticking it to the '47 percent'.

    That's one of the main reasons why we don't have a President Romney.

    George W Bush Hosts Wounded Warrior Weekend at His Texas Ranch | Is it 2012 in Nevada County Yet?
    Too bad he never once honored the dead soldiers arriving at Dover. Does he think this will make up for THAT?

    President Bush and Vice President Cheney claimed they had repeatedly visited Dover AFB to honor American war dead. Their claim that this was done quietly, with no cameras and no publicity is now proven to have been a total lie.

    Neither Bush nor Cheney ever visited Dover. Neither came there, even once in 7 years of war, despite their stories told of tearful experiences that simply never happened.
    BUSH AND CHENEY LIED: DOVER AFB VISITS NEVER HAPPENED | Veterans Today
    This week, while attacking President Obama for a public visit to Dover to honor war dead, Vice President Cheney’s daughter Liz again repeated the stories President Bush and her father told, now known to be lies.

    Anti EMP measures from a nuclear weapon is a bit of overkill.

    Whatever your EMPing, you could just nuke.

    Plus anti-emp isn't that difficult to accomplish.

    You have way too much time invested in your hatred for Bush which really is nothing more than a diversion from the Obama record that continues to be ignored.



    Today's historians rank G.W Bush 39th out of 44 (Mighty close to where Nixon come in.), Obama does a lot better - he's #18, a little above the middle.

    Does this surprise you?
