Not that anyone would care.

How much you want to bet that FEMA funds will be paid out over this.

He’ll probably blame it for a poor golf game.

I would hope not.

Out of sight, out of mind, fine with me.

What is he supposed to announce? Bush’s fault?

Obama will probably announce a new emergency stimulus expenditure to make all public buildings, schools, hospitals and government buildings earthquake safe.

This earthquake thing has been blown out of all proportion.

It shook lightly for about 30 seconds and it was over.

Some are using it as an excuse to go home , others are panicing for no reason.

Makes you woner what would happen if we had a real earthquake.

He’s still on vacation, did you forget that?? He can’t be bothered with trivial things like earthquakes, hurricanes, unemployment, inflation etc...

Just what the economy needed! Shovel ready rebuilding projects. Allup and down the East coast.

Almost as good as an alien invasion.

He certainly will! He’ll announce, in a joint news conference with Congress, a 97 billion dollar rebuilding program for the capital buildings most damaged by the earthquake as well as a 150 billion dollar earthquake retrofit program for those buildings that suffered no damage.

As well, they’ll tear down the Washington Monument and replace it with a multicultural center dedicated to teaching Americans just how many other nations and people they’ve screwed over, with murals of Nagasaki, the Congo, and the aggressive stealing of the southwest from Mexico, with the fourth wall dedicated to welcoming all those who have been oppressed and to beg forgiveness. Citizenship ceremonies will be banned from the national mall area as well, out of respect of those who have come to this country for a better life but don’t desire to pay taxes or forswear their nation.

Believe it! It'll take a billion dollars and maybe twenty years of intensive study (wink wink) to decide whether the Washington Monument is tilting or not.

Bet he'll come home early...not because he wants to (though he'll say it's for us) but because of the hurricane rushing up north to catch him by the arse.

No matter...in 3 months, he'll be off to Hawaii....the home of his (cough, cough) birth.

Why would he? Why would any president? I know Clinton was fond of the tongue biting forced tears “I share your pain” crap but we didn’t do that junk before him and it’s way past time to stop. Especially when it’s not looking like anybody got killed.

If the Washington Monument really is damaged from the quake, he'll have it torn down and replaced with a new monument to himself. In the shape of an ice cream cone.

"Yes, we inherited the fault zone from the previous administration. Had we not passed our stimulus package, it would have been a magnitude 7 quake.

We have created or saved almost a whole point on the Richter Scale."

Maybe the Washington monument is tilting from the Father of our country turning over in his grave.

Sounds like you've been listing to Sheperd Smith on Fox trying to sound like Walter Cronkhite and calm everyone down. I agree it isn't that big a deal. But somehow, listening to Shep try to chill everyone out, isn't comforting at all.

I’m sure he will respond with the same firm hand and mature leadership he has provided to date:

What, “I missed my putt?”

Since when has 0bama remarked about or visited any location, other than where minorities ‘are hardest hit’?

Of course, he will.

Given the nature of his presidency, he’ll appear before the nation and say, “That earthquake is to blame for me missing my putt!”

Then he’ll blame the tremor on George Bush.

Blaming Bush is so 2009, he'll blame the Tea Party.
