The city of Atlanta was hit with a major ice storm yesterday, hundreds of people were stranded on highways and schools for more than 23 hours… and it’s no surprise that the Democratic mayor–did nothing.
The result was gridlock on freeways that are jammed even on normal days. Countless vehicles were stranded and many of them abandoned. Officials said 239 children spent Tuesday night aboard school buses; thousands of others stayed overnight in their schools.
One woman’s 12-mile commute home took 16 hours. Another woman gave birth while stuck in traffic; police arrived just in time to help. Drivers who gave up trying to get home took shelter at fire stations, churches and grocery stores.
CNN did a good job drilling Mayor Reed on WHY he did nothing, but notice how good he is at passing the blame: It was the teacher’s fault. This morning–they were blaming the weatherman–because George Bush wasn’t around. Yes, it’s got to be rough when your President is a democrat and you are the mayor of a big city, and you can’t blame the President when you &$% up and your own citizens are mad at you.
But…guess what? Remember when the Mayor of New Orleans blamed President George W. Bush for Katrina?
Ray Nagin rose to American political fame in swift, albeit uncensored, fashion — as the New Orleans mayor who publicly trashed and pleaded with President George W. Bush to save his city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. “Flying over in Air Force One doesn’t do it justice,” Nagin said during a radio interview a few days after the storm hit on Aug. 29, 2005.
Then the photo came out, of George flying over New Orleans and not even landing. Why, he should have sent in the 45th battalion! They never got over it, and to this day, President George W. Bush is blamed for the misery suffered after Katrina. But…it wasn’t his fault. He was actually following the law. By our Constitution, if you have a disaster in your city, it’s the Mayor and the Governor of that state that are responsible to handle it. The Federal government can only come in when ASKED. And nobody asked the President for DAYS.
Nobody Thinks that was because Nagin really messed up big time…the democrats manipulated it so that the President would be blamed, instead of the mayor.
When does a democrat NOT blame a republican for something that they do?
Wal-Mart came to the rescue when Mayor Nagin was sitting around bitching about everything. But that’s democrats. Nagin was such a crook. He is just now being persecuted for what he did during the time of Katrina. (READ ABOUT THAT HERE)
President George W. Bush did right by not landing…he really was thinking of the people. The whole apparatus of Air Force One would have been a headache at the time when people didn’t need one. Nevertheless…that didn’t stop Obama from landing In New Jersey and getting his photo-op with Chris Christie while he made all kinds of promises those suffering people after Hurricane Sandy—-
Which of course, were all lies.
The CNN reporter is right: It was the mayor’s fault. He should have salted those roads. Atlanta is not doing too good financially, and if Kasim is anything like Nagin, who knows what corruption he is in? As for the democratic governor, Nathan Deal?
Around the time the traffic jam started, Deal and Reed were at an award ceremony recognizing the mayor as the “2014 Georgian of the Year.” Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said the governor left before 1:30 p.m. and was in constant contact with emergency officials.
Nevertheless: It’s already been suggested that the small communities cannot handle things at all. All power should just be put in the hands of the President. I actually heard that on CNN. They can’t blame George Bush, so they are going to do the next best thing: Take all power away from the states and put that power in the hands of Obama.
Nobody Wins when democrats run the country.
So whatever happened to Nagin? He’s going to court:
The indictment states Nagin accepted more than $160,000 in bribes and truckloads of free granite for his family business in exchange for promoting the interests of businessman Frank Fradella — who secured millions of dollars in city contract work after the hurricane. The hurricane and its aftermath killed roughly 1,800 people and cost an estimated $108 billion.
Nagin moved to Dallas after leaving office and founded CRN Initiatives LLC, which specializes in publishing, public speaking and emergency preparedness.
You cannot make this stuff up.
Nobody Knows just why Obama and the Rino’s are crying out for war with Syria. Everybody that I read is pretty much guessing that it’s all to save Obama from his own big mouth. But Nobody Thinks we should ask the very old but very sensible question: Who benefits? It’s blatantly obvious that the United States citizens, would be hurt. We don’t have the money or the will to fight another senseless war in the Middle East—-but how about our elites?
Nobody Knows and wonders—-what and IF some of our entranced Senators and Presidents get some personal money out of this from…big corporations, or even worse…other countries?
Nobody Knows…how influential big corporations and Saudi money are in calling the shots in Washington D.C. It seems, every politician in Washington is controlled and by big wads of money. P.J. O’Rourke was right when he said we have a Parliament of Whores. Nobody Wonders if we can also add a recent gaggle of Presidential Whores to that great title.
Let’s go back to the first gulf war. Daddy Bush told us we were going over there to protect a defenseless country named Kuwait, and Saddam was a bad guy. Remember, we backed that ‘bad’ guy with chemical weapons, military hardware, and millions of dollars to help those poor tribal lords in Iraq fight Iran. We did the very same thing with bin Laden, in Afghanistan, to help him fight Russia
How did that turn out for us?
Daddy Bush gave our military support to those adorable Sunni sheiks in Saudi Arabia in order to protect them, and their family, and their oil with the FIRST Gulf war. Bush the elder put on a real patriotic display for…making himself look good and protecting the Sheiks. The propaganda was so good…we didn’t mind much, because we still had money.
Then we had Clinton protecting the Muslims in Kosovo in THAT civil war. Remember, there was another ‘bad’ guy…Milosevic. Nobody Knows how necessary that was. Clinton kept away from bin Laden, refused the man nine times, because bin Laden had relatives in the Saudi family. He literally ignored the bombing of the Cole, (We will FIND the criminals who did this!) and the first bombing of the World Trade Center, which was done by the Muslim Brotherhood. Clinton airlifted Bosnian refugees over here because he felt sorry for them. He dropped 80,000 into St. Louis.
After 9.11, Bush Jr. protected the Saudi’s kids and sent out planes to pick up their families here, while everybody else was grounded. Even though almost ALL of the hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, Bush blamed one lone man. bin Laden, and he kept inviting those old Sheiks down to his Texas ranch, where he could give them big kisses.
Obama just has the thugs into the White House.
Who here believes that George W. Bush didn’t know where bin Laden was for ten years…raise your hands.
(Okay. You there. Go back to your granola.)
Obama continued the Saudi King worship with low bows.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? Jeb Bush is about to give Hillary Clinton, the butcher enabler of Benghazi, a metal of honor. Hillary has a Muslim Brotherhood woman as her assistant and she is now the right hand man of Obama.
Tell me, when will the American people get some attention from their Presidents?
All these years, our Presidents have been protecting the Saudi’s family…and we are still doing it. Iran is their biggest enemy. How nice it would be for them if we took out Syria, and then Iran?
You could say that our Presidents are doing this to keep us in oil, but we can easily get oil from other places, including our own country, and yet, we NEVER do. Our Congress AND President make damn sure we stay forever dependent on the Saudi oil.
Nobody knows, if the reason that rich people want the Presidency so badly is that the top politicians have their own very secret, and very lucrative contracts with Saudi Arabia? After all, the Saudi’s and the Muslim Brotherhood are both Wahhabi. It would explain why we have a Muslim sympathize in the White House. The Saudi’s could have told the Rhino’s at the top, that they wanted a Muslim someday, in the Presidency. John McCain could have been in on that deal. After all, he ran to lose, it was almost too obvious.
Are our Presidents and some of our Senators on the payrolls of Saudi Kings?
Because Nobody Knows how John McCain, a decorated war veteran, could say this:
The bloodcurdling cry of “Allahu akbar” is a war cry, and is meant to “strike terror in the hearts of the unbelievers.” You can’t tell me John McCain doesn’t know that.
Nobody Knows if the Boston Mayor Menino who said when a reporter asked him what he’d do with Detroit “I’d blow up the place and start all over.” if John McCain would think it was okay if the Mayor said “Thank GOD!” after he did it? (And wasn’t THAT a racist statement?)
Nobody Knows why the democrats, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore helped get the network Al-Jazeera broadcasted into American homes, while in Egypt, the Muslims’ Brotherhood network has been banned. Al Gore made millions, but what did Hillary get?
Nobody knows why now, Ft. Hood was treated as a work place accident. Nobody Knows why American Tea Party is higher on the FBI list as terrorist than al-Qaeda.
Are our Presidents getting paid in secret by the Saudi’s to keep us at war? After all, a few top men making billions from secret payouts from foreign countries would be very hard to prove, and very easy to hide. Look how long they hid everything else? (NSA( We still don’t know who killed JFK, and never will. Did FDR make a deal that American Presidents would forever more protect the Saudi Family as long as a few key people at the top of our government got big payouts? Could the Saudi Kings have insisted that payout as long as America was kept dependent on their oil?
Nobody knows, but it would sure explain the absolute absurdity of the last four President and their actions. And when you look all around you, it’s the ONLY answer that explains it all.
If you think I’m nuts about this theory, ask yourself: “What have they done for YOU lately?”
“The DOG ate my homework!”
“I had a flat tire, and that’s why I’m late!”
“My alarm didn’t go off…”
“I fainted because I had a virus, hit my head, and so I just can’t make it to Congress to testify because the doctor told me I have to rest my brain…..”
WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sustained a concussion last week after becoming extremely dehydrated and fainting while suffering from a stomach virus, the State Department said. The 65-year-old Clinton is recovering at home and has been advised by her doctors to continue to rest and avoid strenuous activity and cancel all work events for the next week.
Democrat “insisted that given her condition, she could not and should not appear” as planned, said Kerry spokeswoman Jodi Seth. Obama is expected to nominate Kerry to succeed Clinton.
Excuses. We’ve all heard them, we’ve all used them, and some are much better than others.
Excuses are what humans use to get out of something they don’t want to do…like jury duty, a date we don’t want to go on, or a day off from work so we can go to the SuperBowl….but when Joe Blow skips work, in most matters, it doesn’t affect the whole country, unlike our famous politicians.
Hillary…can’t testify in the most important scandal of this century because she’s…got to rest her brain.
HA HA HA HA…who knew she had one?
And this episode made me think of another famous politician who was a bit more creative when it came to excuses—Remember with me….
WASHINGTON — President Bush briefly lost consciousness Sunday after he choked on a pretzel while watching a football game on television in his living quarters, the White House said.
After fainting, the president tumbled to the floor from a couch, bruising his lower lip and suffering an abrasion the size of a half dollar on his left cheek, White House physician Dr. Richard Tubb said he fainted due to a temporary decrease in heart rate brought on by swallowing a pretzel.
So we as Americans must ask: Why do we keep electing people that fall off of c ouches, and have to “rest their brains.”
Nobody Thinks that Presidential PR people get paid BIG BUCKS to sit around a table and come up with creative excuses to get their bosses out of trouble.
“Well, we could tell the truth…”
“No..here’s what you do. You make up something that is so unbelievable, nobody will question it. Hillary can’t testify because last time she testified she said “I don’t remember” over 784 times. Some people actually REMEMBER that. So here’s what we’ll do. She’s got a flu right? We’ll just say she was dehydrated and fell over an hit her head and got a concussion, so when she DOES testify, she can say “I don’t remember” and EVERYONE will believe it was due to her concussion! Problem solved!”
Well, MSNBC bought it. But my dog doesn’t believe a word of it. And that’s why Nobody is giving George W. Bush the hands on winner in the Nobody’s Perfect contest this week.
Anybody who can fall off a soft couch while watching football, gaze his head in, bust his lip…a gash that looks more like he crashed while he was bike riding, or got in a fight with some guy in Texas..and because he didn’t want to lose his macho image, he said he choked on a pretzel…
THAT man has bigger cohunes than Hillary. Or better yet, THAT man was President and knew he couldn’t be touched, Hillary on the other hand, needs to get out of testifying.
Hillary should stand trial for her crimes in the Benghazi scandal. But..if she doesn’t , then running for President should be completely out of the question..
After all…if she is so brain dead she can’t make it to a Congressional hearing, she certainly can’t be President.
YES SHE CAN!
Now, that I’ve got that out of my system…I need to tell my husband that, “I didn’t pick up his medicine because I thought it was Sunday.”
This stuff could work wonders for us all…and we need to do is watch…and learn.
“I couldn’t find my keys!”
” My SISTER was on the phone for over an hour!”
“I have a fever…” (Feel free to donate your best)
“I had the flu, and fell down because I was working SO hard, that I started RUNNING to the plane, and then while I was trying to save a baby, who was being attacked by a terrorist, I stuck the pretzel I was carrying in my mouth, and then I choked, and USED my body to drop the terrorist who was trying to kidnap the baby, and fell to the ground, and banged my head, and so I just can’t show up for anything…
Don’t worry…the baby is fine due to my quick thinking. “
