Notice Toonces isn't going to make the same mistake Bush did by only flying over the area. Supposedly Bush did not want to interfere with the recovery efforts by bigfooting around the Big Easy, but he considers that to have been a huge mistake now.

And I think those critical of Christie need to take a look around coastal NJ before they kick him from the tent. Anything the Big Man did that wasn't obviously groping for every bit of help we could get would kill him here. If you doubt that, you have no idea the magnitude of this disaster.

A House Foreign Affairs hearing on “Benghazi and Beyond” quickly turned into a shouting and accusations forum.

It began when Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) said this: “What is clear is that this administration, including the president himself, has intentionally misinformed, read that LIED, to the American people in the aftermath of this tragedy. Now President Obama has the gall to float the name as possibly secretary of State, the name of the person who is the actual vehicle used to misinform the American people during this crisis.”

Rep. Brad Sherman, a Democrat also from California, called the attacks on Rice “unfair” and leveled that Colin Powell testified that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, because that’s the information that was given to him.

Rohrbacker shot back, going further, intimating that what the White House has done is worse than Watergate.

“This is not simply a cover up of a third-rate burglary,” he alleged. “We have four of our personnel dead, and it is not a McCarthy-era tactic to demand accountability and to demand that American people are not misinformed about it to the point that they don’t know what the threat is.”

Naturally Democrats responded. It began rather timidly and escalated.

“Barack Obama was no more responsible for what happened in Benghazi than George Bush was for Sept. 11th or Ronald Reagan was for the blowing up of U.S. Marines in Beirut,” Rep. Eliot Engle (D-NY) said.

Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY) unloaded, first sarcastically: “Let’s just hang the guilty parties.”

“The stench of hypocrisy that hangs over this city today emanates from this room,” Ackerman said. ”I’ve listened to my colleagues talk about the President of the United States and others in the administration using [the] terms ‘deliberate’, ‘lies’, ‘unmitigated gall’, ‘malfeasance,’ which is malicious and knowing evil-doing, ‘disgust’, ‘coverups’.”

He continued, “If you want to know who is responsible in this town, buy yourself a mirror!”

Ackerman went on to say that Republicans had “the audacity to come here” when the administration requested, for worldwide security, “$440 million more than you guys wanted to provide. And the answer is that you damn didn’t provide it! You REDUCED what the administration asked for to protect these people. Ask not who the guilty party is, it’s you! It is us. It is this committee, and the things that we insist that we need have to cost money.” [total load of BS -ed.]

He added, “Could you tell me which of my colleagues on this committee was as bodacious in their insistence that we provide more money for American security in the State Department budget. I would appreciate it.”

Ackerman then asked them to raise their hands and gave them a count of five to do so. None did.

Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA) picked up the push back. He held up a letter, dated yesterday, in which he was asked to co-sign saying that Susan Rice is unfit to be secretary of State.

“Smear, character assassination, judgment before all the facts are in is McCarthyism,” Connolly said, ”and that’s an attempt to besmirch, in my opinion, the reputation of a very talented and capable public servant. I want no part of it.”


And so it begins

Not critical of Christie's need to have preazy survey the damage, after all NJ is a blue state and it did sustain serious loss. He could have gone about it in a more statesmanlike way, he didn't need to gobble the preezidential knob and also throw Mitt under the bus for good measure.

I'm glad NJ has a GOP governor, I hope he wins a second term there. But Christie's future as a GOP presidentail hopefulis asunderwater as the Seaside Heights rollercoaster.

137 I'm noticing a very curious phenomenon.

When I try to post story links to Facebook the tone of the links change.

Let me illustrate.

There is a story from CNBC that I am trying to post.

The body of the page contains the headline.

"Dow Posts 4-Day Decline; Apple Drops 2%"

I usually post stories to Facebook to try sway and tweak my more liberal friends.

But when I post the story to Facebook it morphs to the following.

"Stocks open flat after mixed economic data"


I have been noticing this a lot lately where I see a story that could drive a point home that when I post it the story is changed subtly or substantially to change the tone and tenor of the story.

I am going to start looking at the source code of the web pages to see why facebook is linking it this way.

Because the body of the story I'm trying to post does not contain the muted parts that are being posted.

Very curious.

Fully insured, except for the first floor that no one will insure, because... well, flooding entirely is to be expected. Except by the people who pay for the insurance, live in a flood plain, have many, many days to get their shit out of harms way after the MSM yells STORM OF THE CENTURY and FRANKENSTORM for almost a week before and they instead let the oceans rise and destroy their shit. Yeah, they didn't expect it. Believe that, I've got some oceanfront property across the Delaware River in Pa.

After their claims to their insurance company get turned down, they are gonna get some sweet, sweet money from FEMA -- which actually is an acronym for you, the taxpayer.
