    You can thank your Commander in Chief Barack Obama for sending in the Army!

    • Grandma HeadInjury

      Just like I should thank the guy that pumps my septic tank. You know, for doing his job!

      Knowing 0bama, he’ll put the army in the most dangerous spot in the storm, and then tell them to stand down while sending no support….

      • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

        You just can’t stand the fact that the President is doing a good job

        • Grandma HeadInjury

          A good job? Tell that to Tyrone Woods who was painting a laser target designator on the Benghazi attackers until he was murdered in cold blood. The President “doing a good job” my ass.

          I hope that lazy, lying bastard hears Woods’ voice begging for air support in his dreams for the rest of his life…since we know he heard it on September 11 and ignored it. I pray it keeps him awake and drives him to some very dark places from which his feeble mind cannot escape.

          That’s what I cannot stand, Daffy. That and supposed Americans who are willing to give him a pass for this atrocity just because he plays on their favorite team.

            Here we go with the Faux News conspiracies again

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            I would say I expected better, but to be honest, I did not. You are as sad and banal as everyone says you are. Like your pathological president, you are worth neither my time nor my respect.

      Where is the army and what are they doing?

      • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

        Escorting firemen into the flood zone

        • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

          I’m always proud of our soldiers… Dems or Reps. Did Christie not call out the National Guard? If not, he should be ashamed of himself for waiting until Obama called out the Army.
          The same with NY.. and all the states. No one should delay calling out the NG of their state. Waiting until the Army gets there can be very risky.
          Edited to replace “Romney called out” with “Obama called out”… my error.

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

            LMAO Romney didn’t call out the Army. THE PRESIDENT DID! Romney has ZERO control or authority over the Army you dummy

          • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

            Yep… I mis-typed on that one.

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

            Your statement is just wrong on so many levels

  • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

    Romney also said America doesn’t need more firefighters and police officers, wonder if he still stands by that?

    • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

      Remember, if you have to lie for your candidate, you know that you are backing the wrong man.

      • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

        So you deny Romney saying America should follow Wisconsins example and not hire more first responders and teachers? You deny him saying it ON TV?

        • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

          Yes… I am. If he did, without it being taken out of context of a broader statement, I haven’t seen it. Look it up for me and get back to me as soon as you can. I need the video, ok? The WHOLE video.

          • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

            Please don’t bring up the video where he says that Obama wants to hire more government workers such as teachers, first responders, police, etc. When was the last time the federal government hired a teacher, a policeman or a fireman? These DO NOT need to become federal employees.

          • http://twitter.com/DaffodilTimes The Daffodil Times

            Who said federal? State and city taxes pay public school and first responders

          • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

            That’s my point… Romney was saying that Obama wants to hire more federal workers such as police, teachers, responders, etc. Romney disagrees and thinks there should be less federal workers. By saying that, everyone jumped on him saying he didn’t want to hire more police, teachers, etc.

  • Armando

    But Romney wants to cut back in policemen and firefighters… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoSmWK_-x4g

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Well it’s very comforting to know NYC has their priorities straight. I’m sure the free birth control and Big Bird really muster the courage of FDNY. Oh ,and knowing they can’t buy large soda, too.

      I’m impressed with the Tweet from the person who left their mom out there on a PENINSULA surrounded with water and now expecting the nanny state to save her. Classy.

      No amount of government workers make up for common sense. We have a fundamental disagreement on life that may be on display next week.

    If Mittens gets elected and this happens again, bye bye FEMA, it’ll be every man for himself. No order, just photo ops in barely-affected sates.

      We saw the “every man for himself” scenario played out by Obama in Benghazi.
