I think this picture says a lot too:
He's happy people are suffering so he can have a photo op?
They both seem pretty happy, don't they? At any rate, better than Romney holding a political rally in Ohio on the day after the storm. But, why do you seem to attack Obama so much more than Romney when you support Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton? What is it that Romney, Stein, and Clinton have that Obama doesn't?
You mean the "rally" where there was absolutely no political signage whatsoever and all they did was box up and prepare relief supplies to be sent to people who needed help?
Yeah, that was really out of line. Helping out the victims of this storm and all.
"Never let a crisis go to waste"
Obama once had it ...
lost it when the health care bill was written behind closed doors and never got it back.
Became Bush Light ... there never was any change born of hope.
Which rally was that? The one I was talking about was this one:
Romney turns Ohio rally into "storm relief event" - CBS News
The campaign removed all campaign-themed signage from the event, instead hanging one large American flag from the ceiling and posting information on donating to the Red Cross on two large TV screens hanging in the arena.
But the event still had some of the trappings of a rally, including rounds of chanting for the candidate by those in attendance and a few campaign-related t-shirts (including "Obama: You're Fired!" and "Don't tread on me!"). In addition, the organizers played a video biography of Romney that is a staple of his campaign events.
what does this picture say? little to nothing
funny how libbies try to deflect the fact that obama is a total failure with really trivial things
Yes, Obama is overjoyed that everyone is talking about the hurricane and not Benghazigate. Christie is happy because the guy who likes to throw around money is here.
So the Romney campaign changed the theme of the rally to one of storm relief but a few people showed up with anti-Obama tshirts and they chanted Romney? Is that what happened? Oh no!! talk about a non-story...
The tee shirts and chants are not significant, but of course that's why you're focusing on that. I'm talking about the video biography of Romney. That's a sure way to politicize an event.
I surely won't get in this debate ... Romney is an equally bad photo ho' ...
However ... I think it's worse to use the Presidency to get a photo op.
How, exactly, does that make him "Bush Light?" THAT was the moment for you? Really? LOL
If you argued torture or doubling down on foreign occupations based on fraud, I might agree. But spewing a policy Boy King NEVER would have instituted doesn't really make sense.
Gitmo is still open, the trials are who knows where. Granted he toughen up on torture but then again Bush exploited it and Obama brought it back. He extended the Afghanistan war with no results. Iraq ending was planned under Bush.
The military complex is still roaring and the defense cuts are more a product of Congress cuts than Obama - in fact he has delayed defense cuts.
He had us involved in Libya and we are involved in Syria though not openly - he is more covert than Bush in that regard but no saint.
He approves of foreign assassinations and has little to no remorse for the killing of civilians through the useless drone program. He is not much different than Bush - he just does it on a smaller and more clandestine scale. granted - maybe it's the military calling the shots for both he and Bush - but he hasn't stopped it.
also - a small topic in the media and one I post here with little response ... he is in bed with terrorists to carry out his foreign policiy. He has been involved with elements of Al-Qaeda in Libya and Syria to overthrow their government. Again ... not a war monger but no saint either. I do believe he is Bush Light and/or he has not had the backbone to change as promised. Perhaps he just stays out of the way - either way it's a fail militarily.
Disclaimer: I don't think Romney will be better and may well be worse. I do know Stein would be better - or she would die a hero for exposing the big secrets to America.
OK, many of those things have merit regarding the flawed policies he carried over from the worst president of all-time.
But you wrote that Obama lost his integrity with the health care bill.
Aside from the photo op, Christie praised Obama...take it for what it is worth.
He did......at least to anyone who now understands the entire health bill
Two Stinking Grinning Politicians
Perhaps this picture tells a different story.. and probably better
