    You must be ignoring the reality of FEMA and you must be ignoring the ACCEPTED responses of FEMA during the Clinton administration. 4 weeks to respond...acceptable. 3 days to respond...George Bush dont like black people.

    No...not kidding at all. do you KNOW who's job it was to provide for those citizens in NOLA? Did you ever bother asking why the mayor abandoned the city, why 800 buses sat unused because he refused to issue an evacuation order, or why the governor didnt engage in the problem? No...of COURSE you didnt consider anything other than the standard gawdIhateGWB mindset.

    really? Ideological cleansing of the federal government makes you want to vote for him even more? Do you even realize what you advocate?

    I don't think that's true under the relevant federal law.

To me, this is a disingenuous attempt to strike back at the exaggeration of conservatives regarding American liberalism. It's just as silly as watching conservatives dismiss the contributions of other conservatives from the past 40 years because now they think "they were not conservatives."
    It's accurate. The country has gone farther and farther right. All you need to do is compare the 70s arch conservative nemesis to today's Democrats. That would be Richard Nixon, who by today's standards is to the left of Barack Obama. Nixon tried to pass a bill that would have created universal health care as a combination of the existing private heath insurance companies and a public option. The liberals didn't want it because it was too conservative. They wanted single payer. The bill Obama signed into law had no public option and was only the regulation and oversight of existing health insurance companies. It's well to the right of Nixon's plan, but is branded as somehow being socialist. The Republicans were united in their view that not everyone deserves health care. That's a far right position that is unique to the United States in the industrialized world. In Canada, Great Britain, and other nations, all the conservatives support universal health care. They just usually want to do it while including private industry, as Nixon did. Yes, the country has gone far, far to the right to where what I said is dead-on. The Democrats are the conservatives. The Republicans are the extremist far-right fascists, with the only exceptions being Kuchinich as the one liberal and Sanders as the lone socialist.

    What we're seeing is a parallel to post World War I Germany when desperate economic times and hurt national self esteem was a ripe climate for the support of far right extremism.

    The only one getting fired is going to be Newt himself.
