    That is just straight up nutty. He was already in Texas for the library thing.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    This is clearly a case where Obama cannot make any right decision for the right. If he did not go to texas he would have been uncaring and ignoring a red state, and when he does go to texas his motives were not right, and it costs too much. Reps are just going to complain one way or the other about obama. Personally, after what texas did to kennedy I give him props for just showing up in that state.

    I knew when I saw you had replied to this thread that it would be to bash everyone on the right while completely disregarding that I'm the one who started the thread.

    Well, you stuck your foot in your mouth.

    A tangle of agencies regulates plants like the one in West. Different agencies were assigned oversight for different chemicals there. Among the federal agencies responsible were the E.P.A., Homeland Security, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration. State agencies include the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the state chemist’s office and the state health services department.

    ....

    OSHA officials, meanwhile, acknowledged that they had last inspected the plant 28 years ago. Agency officials said the plant did not fall into its priority categories based on prior inspections, a lack of worker complaints and because it was not classified as high risk by the E.P.A.

    Inspectors with the Texas Feed and Fertilizer Control Service, however, had made at least 35 visits to the plant since 2006, including one on April 5, 12 days before the blast. That agency regulates aspects of the fertilizer industry as part of the state chemist’s office, and oversees the sale of ammonium nitrate in the state. The state chemist, Tim Herrman, said the law prohibits him from disclosing information about the 115 facilities that hold permits to sell ammonium nitrate in Texas.

    So Texas was far more active in inspecting and regulating the plant.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Hey Obamy, stay the fik out of Texas.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
