    Mike, give it a rest. Sandy deserves more attention this week. Can you spell p-r-i-o-r-i-t-i-e-s?

    I doubt that Michael means that Hurricane Sandy isn’t newsworthy; rather, he’s pointing out how the White House would much rather talk about how they’re dealing with Hurricane Sandy than how they dealt with Benghazi. I can’t say that I blame them; if I were Obama, I wouldn’t want to talk about Benghazi either.

    Likewise, I suspect that he’d rather the American people think about Sandy rather than Benghazi for about a week or so, until the latter has no chance of hurting his election prospects anymore.

    I agree with you but check the news today, Obama might regret that strategy before election day. FEMA has struck again or failed to. They can’t even get generators to gas-stations to get people gas. Right now only 1 in 15 gas-stations are working in the effected areas.

    Hey Jack, ExxonMobil 3rd quarter 2012 ‘earnings’ report in. 4.43 million – per hour – in profits. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That’s after all costs for exploration, production, labor, advertising, etc. Profit.

    You can find the info anywhere, but I assume you prefer Fox:

    Since the date of the Benghazi attacks, while Fox has ya’ll whipped up over a non-scandal, 27 Americans have been killed in action in Afghanistan.

    “that does not mean you simply ignore Behghazi”

    Howgzit, why do YOU ignore 27 American combat deaths in Afghanistan? Another 174 Americans wounded, in theater, in September alone?

    @corzak

    Ok what’s your point? The gas stations are still not working. Who made Exxon Mobile an issue?

    It is my opinion the information giving full details about this attack will show it to have been a tragedy based on a calculated risk that went bad. If I am wrong, I will apologize, but the more I learn, the more it seems Ambassador Stevens felt the risk to his life to be less important than helping the Libyan people, many of whom grieved publicly when he died. Some even formed groups that attacked terrorist locations and drove them out, though they lost lives doing so.
    Ambassador Stevens felt these to be a people worth dying for. He did it while representing a nation he felt was worth dying for. He believed in his government and in humanity, and sets an example for the rest of us.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Re Exxon, A few months back you were in denial. I just wanted to update you.

    Re: gas stations, Obama, Christie and Cuomo will have them back up soon. Cutting through FEMA red tape to get it done. You shouldn’t be concerned – this isn’t a job for Fox N’ Friends.

    @corzak

    When they get back up it will be done by the companies that hire the electricians. Not FEMA, not Chris Christie, not Obama.

    Also about Fox they are the only ones reporting that the Unions, will not allow Non-Union electricians from Georgia, ready to help, to work in their area. So maybe you should listen to them a little more.

    As for me being in denial tell me on what, cause I have no idea what you are talking about?

    Hurricane Sandy is a happy respite for Obama, since his criminally irresponsible behavior with regard to the Benghazi fiasco was starting to burn him. I think it is rather ironic how Obama now says that “we must cut through the red tape” to get help to people, when it is HIS SYSTEM of running things that is keeping help from getting to desperate people. The tragedy in the wake of Sandy is being exacerbated by the Progressive/collectivist squirrel-operated government machine.

    If he’s worried about Benghazi then Iraq must have really been tough to take.

    “Your postings indicate that you think if people don’t post current news articles here it means they are “ignoring” it.”

    No. Only Jack. A month ago or so Jack said I was “simply wrong” when I posted profit earnings for 2nd quarter. I’m keeping him updated.

    “Fox they are the only ones reporting that the Unions, will not allow Non-Union electricians from Georgia, ready to help, to work in their area.”

    If Fox is the ONLY one covering it, then there’s a possibility it’s not true. Or exaggerated. This doesn’t just apply to Fox – it applies to ALL source referencing.

    But I checked this story out. Turns out it’s ONE guy: “Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can’t do any work there since they’re not union employees.”

    Nothing against Derrick, but I’ll wait for diversified confirmation of this shocking news.
