    Keeping an unConstitutional promise is not exactly something to be lauded for. Regardless of which party you are a member of.

    Governor Christie seems like a nice enough guy. We all know where nice guys finish, don't we. IF he has further political ambitions he needs to look long and hard at what he's been doing and where he wants his support to come from. I wouldn't ever vote for him, but I'm sure that there are plenty of Republicans who would. so long as he "repents" and sees the error of his ways. Otherwise, he's as good as done in the GOP, and I'm not sure the Democrats really want him either.

    All I can say is, obama must not have promised very much.




    "Hurricane Sandy’s homeless are still feeling the pain six months after the super storm ravaged the East Coast, namely in New York and New Jersey.

    Tens of thousands of people are still homeless as they deal with a slow and frustrating recovery from the storm that flooded parts of the subway system and caused billions of dollars in damage.




    Housing, business, tourism, and coastal protection also remain major problems as summer vacation —and hurricane season — approaches. New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo stated on Thursday:

    Just can't stand it, can you? Somebody said something nice about the president. It just has to be false somehow, right?

    You know, sometimes I think it might actually be worth my while to re-join the Republican Party (where, for instance, my great-grandfather was employed as a minor functionary for Dwight Eisenhower early in his first term). It's my ancestral home. It's where I belong.

    Then I take a close look at it, squint my eyes a bit, and see it's still full of a bunch of lying Dixiecrats who call the Northeastern Republicans - who were there a century before they were born - RINOs.

    He didn't promise to wave a magic wand and make all the damage disappear, if that's what you mean.

    Thousands of homes and businesses were destroyed, along with lots of infrastructure. Widespread damage means there's a crunch for skilled contractors and supplies. And of course, Congress only authorized reconstruction funds 3 months ago.

    We also have to figure out what to do about areas that we now realize are prone to flooding. Should we rebuild in the same spots with the same style of homes? Who should pay for flood insurance? Should we abandon what was once usable real estate?

    For example, the Rockaways were badly hit by the storm, and are likely to be hit again. It was mostly middle- and low-income housing, including lots of larger apartment buildings. Rebuilding in the same spot would take time, and expose those individuals to another weather event. But real estate is at a premium in New York City, and infrastructure has its limits, so we can't arbitrarily declare we will build a huge housing complex in the middle of Brooklyn (and have it go up overnight) to relocate the affected individuals.

    Yet Bush was supposed to get Nawlins fixed overnight in a hurricane that devastated 100 square miles.

    You right-wingers always complain when someone supporting Obama brings up Bush. Don't you know that Bush isn't president any more?
