Were sooo doomed.
You think we will be worse off then Katrina? I don’t think so. The federal and state government of all states involved are on top of this. I am actually quite proud of how much they are taking this seriously. I think a lot of lessons were learned by Katrina.
“We didn’t realize how bad it was.”
You really should have had an Onion/satire tag on this.
Because there’s no way on earth it’s a serious article.
"Okay, enough with the flooding projections. I want to know if my Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday tee times at Andrews are in jeopardy. Can't you people keep your priorities straight? Do I have to think of everything!?"
I’m seeing gusts up to the high 50’s. I don’t have TV so, maybe FOX is right. But I can’t find it. The sustained winds, aren’t showing 85. If there are any, where are they?
Suffolk, VA, currently just above the eye—
Roanoke Rapids, to the west of the eye—
Richmond, VA, North—
Headline from Drudge:
“Scientist mocks: Phony “hurricane” coming on shore with 33mph winds”.
nice pink microphone, baracky.
Obviously Obama turns in yet another tour-de-FARCE showing - attending a meeting where he is obviously the least knowledgeable, least experienced, and least likely leader in the room.
Latest NOAA advisory:
“MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...80 MPH...”
Please, what a joke. This guy has no leadership ability and could not command an tire inner tube in a calm lake.
well, he's got to decide which districts get the FEMA money, which ones get martial law.
ROFLOL, good pic!

Closer- but no cigar, gusting to 74mph. That is not a sustained wind of 80MPH. Propaganda anyone?
Barky is a clueless wonder, probably making himself a nuisance and getting in the way of people who are trying to do their jobs.
