I have no faith in bureacrats in emergencies as they seem to have no comprehension of how quickly emergencies need to be dealt with.
    they're generally so out of touch with the plight of the average American, i'm sure they think a one-week response time to a major disaster is just fine, or better when like in Katrina they send in the thugs to disarm everyone, then pull out LOL and come back with aid days later. Could not make it up.

    Well lets look at a few facts, in Katrina looting took place for days and weeks after the storm, not to mention the thousands of people crammed into a football stadium, remember that? Sounds worse than having to buy some water.

    You keep telling me I'm here to defend Obama, I'm just looking at the facts.

    Re: FEMA Taps Private Vendors to Meet Sandy Victim's Needs

    Has anyone else noticed that republicans don't think much of America. Seems that the government is corrupt, evil, incompetent, useless, creating a nation of welfare bums, killing opportunity, taxing everyone to death, spendthrift and generally tyrannical. Of course they only think that in "democrat" season, but still. They scream about how if they don't win, america will cease to exist etc etc.

    Seems they have absolutely no confidence in the strength of the average american. They have no confidence in a government that has been the beacon of liberty and freedom to the world, a government that has created the environment and opportunity for America to become the greatest, strongest nation on earth. they view the government apparently that is so fragile that it can collapse within one presidential term, a government that should not have anything to do with education, the environment, wall street regulation, unions, healthcare, social programs etc. A government that should not be investing in the nations infrastructure because it can't afford it. A government that is apparently on the verge of being foreclosed on. A government that isn't even good at expediting wars (as long as a democrat is leading it), which also seems to the sole reason most righties think the government should exist.

    When did republicans stop being proud of America?

    You righties have a terrible, pessimistic view of one of the most important pillars of American greatness. You constantly put it down, criticize it, wrap yourselves up in the flag and constitution (as long as its convenient). YOu even hate science but expect the fruits of its application.

    When and why did you guys start hating America so much?

    big boy, I can take it.
    I am more than familiar with the notion that most republicans don't think their **** stinks.
    apparently whenever it starts to reek offensively, they simply erase the offending pile from their collective memory - like Bush/Cheney.

    In the words of Samuel L Jackson...allow me to retort...

    I am a conservative. I believe enough in my personal values and principles that I left the GOP in 2003. 'Proud' of America? Ive never stopped being proud of my country. Ive never stopped being proud of the promise it offers, the hope and opportunity it provides. Hell, I'm proud of the 20-30 million immigrants, illegal and otherwise, that leave their country and risk life to have the opportunities available only here. Im proud of those that dig down deep, work two and three jobs and provide for a better future for their families. Im proud of the entrepreneurs, the small businessmen, the single mom working her ass off and attending night school to better herself. Im proud of those that live within their means, save a bit, take care of their families, and work hard to provide for them. Im proud of a whole lot of people.

    Proud of the federal government? Are you serious? Proud of two major political parties that sit their best and brightest at a table and cant come up with so much as a handful of deficit cuts over 10 year? Proud of two major parties and their zombielike supporters that care more for party than country? Proud of 16 trillion in debt and a mindset that finds it acceptable to dump the cost of todays irresponsibility on future generations? Proud of 47% of this country that pay no income tax and contribute nothing to the success of this country? Proud of the ever increasing lines of crippled and dependent pets begging for the government to toss them a few more handfuls of crumbs? Proud of states that cant manage their own budgets? Proud of people that overobligated themselves in debt and want someone else to blame it on and bail them out? Proud of people that refuse to work, meanwhile those immigrants we mentioned are driving Americans out of jobs markets? Proud of much of what passes for 'citizens' these days? Proud of the crippled and dependent pets that pollute our society-not those that CANT succeed but those that wont...those that reek of failure, those that didnt prepare for a future and now blame everyone else or their 'disability' for their own miserable existence? Proud of a government that panders to people for votes and doesnt have the character and will to expect people to stand on their own two feet and fight? Proud of ****heads in skinny jeans that protest evil Wall Street then vote for politicians that have their pockets stuffed with banker and broker cash? Proud of people that claim they cant afford health care but have no problem affording their cable bills, cellphone bills, internet bills, Starbucks, cigarettes, etc? Proud of those people?

    No. **** no.

    Doesnt mean I dont think will survive. Eventually.

    I don't see anything surprising or wrong with FEMA getting supplies from private companies. If FEMA were nothing more than a stockpile of goods, it'd be useless.
