Posted on 08/30/2008 2:21:42 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache
CNN reports that the RNC Convention will turn into a telethon and a community service outlet for 4 days if Hurricane Gustav destroys cities along the gulf coast.
McCain campaign is presently going over options. He refuses to have the convention be a party atmosphere during time of tragedy and crisis CNN Reports.
he he, YES!
McCain and President Bush likely to be on gulf coast this week to view impact points. Speeches being recorded to tape just in case.
No way is this political. /s
Oooh. Call me insensistive, but is this really a time of tragedy and crisis? What will we call it when something really bad happens?
Micheal Moore said it didn’t he, that Gustav was an act of God? Well, God knows that American’s are decent people. And our next President, John McCain is doing the just and honorable thing by helping those in need.
I’m sorry, but I’m already suffering from NOLA victim fatigue, and Gustav is 2 days away.
Well let’s see...so far Gustav killed 74 people as a tropical storm and Cat 1 hurricane. It will be hitting populated cities with Category 4 winds at landfall on Monday afternoon.
The worst part of the storm is forecast to be over major populated areas. People will again lose everything they own and the storm is forecast to stall just as it crosses over land with up to 30 inches of rain expected.
Definitely, Fay was a nothing storm weather wise and killed 10 floridians, and flooded thousands and hundreds lost everything.
So McCain and the GOP are about to push the envelope of political correctness. OMG!
I hear ya...especially with friends in Waveland and Hancock County etc..in Miss. I am of the opinion that if it does strike the N.O. area again...time to ban all residential living areas and turn it into business and shipping ONLY. Move everyone in 20 miles inland.
Someway, somehow, the pundits and networks will spin it as grandstanding. There ain’t no way that they are going to let the Jerk Messiah not ascend to his proper role as Comrade in Chief.
We had 22 inches at my house in Fla from Fay...St.Johns River still not safe.
The RNC will obviously center its focus FOR the people instead of the PERSON.
Every day and every event coincides and fits together, America still retains its core as “the sleeping giant’, and it is awakening.
WTG, John. All those delegates working the phones, speeches suspended, candidates making the televised pleas.
When is the GOP going to raise money for our fellow Floridians suffering from the tropical storm last week? Many are suffering from devistasting flooding. Honestly, this is silly pandering.
Inspired . . !! Count me in. Wow! If the Dems with all that Obama-adoring crowd in that stadium had only taken up a collection for the “poor”, they could have defeated poverty in our lifetime. Too late, too bad, so sad . . . ANYTHING that yahoo does now is going to look SO “me too” it isn’t even funny. - SO yammer on Dems, and watch a Republican governor handle it like a grownup while Blanco and Nagin whine.
Is Jerry Lewis available?
