Skip to comments.Like Katrina, Isaac is due for Democrats' political spin
Posted on 08/28/2012 4:28:05 AM PDT by Bill Russell
Tampa and the Republican convention seem to have dodged the initial impact of Tropical Storm Isaac. But the full impact of its political spin has yet to be felt.
Issac is building power over the Gulf of Mexico as I write this, and the power of the political spin builds as the storm approaches the landfall areas of Hurricane Katrina. While no one wishes for Isaac to follow the map track of Katrina, those living in its path need to prepare for the wind, rain and storm surges. Those following its political track need to brace for the impact of the political spin to follow the storm. Never a group to let a disaster go to waste, the Obama campaign is waiting to unleash the fury of its spin on the storm with a maximum of political effects.

Jindal is amarter and more familiar with what's headed his way than you will ever be.
Well, I was responding to a post that suggested that Jindal should ask Obama to stay out of it. But, that’s not what Jindal is doing. Like you, Jindal wants Federal assistance. I just stated a fact. I didn’t offer an opinion as to whether Jindal should or should not be askIng for Federal assistance.
I am not for big government but we saw what happened in NOLA when the governor refused federal help.
Jindal is smarter than all of you. Those of you who don't have a clue what you're talking about should just shut up.
I'm not talking about $$$ money given to people but MRE's and the manpower that's needed.
I have had friends at the NHC, they are not “owned” by anybody. This conspiratorial nonsense has one day got to stop, from both sides.
“I have had friends at the NHC, they are not owned by anybody. This conspiratorial nonsense has one day got to stop, from both sides.”
Wow, so Petraeus isn’t Hussein’s yes man?
All that pro-Hussein politics on The Weather Channel is my imagination?
How about Associated Press — they tell the truth and are really on America’s side?
All because you know a few people at the National Health Service?
I’m getting really sick of seeing conservatives defend the media, SOME media, and talk down to the rest of us for not drinking the koolaid.
I watched Katrina get politicized and American lives lost just to try to hurt Bush and Republicans.
Leftist freaks opened the doors of hate and will never enjoy respect from me simply because a “conservative” at FR tells us that “the conspiratorial nonsense has to stop”
ON BOTH SIDES.
It’s the “ON BOTH SIDES” that bothers me the most.
Like you know best — FOR BOTH SIDES.
TWC is ***PWNED*** by Hussein and will say and do ANYTHING to protect/support him.
The hurricane model ploy by the freaks bought the time needed to hurt the Republican convention.
Time to stop buying and drinking the koolaid.
Still no sale.
I wont follow you with these tangents. The NHC is not "controlled" by the government like you are intimating. The previous head of the NHC was a global warming skeptic and a good man. Koolaid? I'll have none of it, from any side. Thank you, and good day.
NHC is National Hurricane Center, not National Health Center.
Perhaps you should restate your opinion.
My favorite comedy is when the MSM reporters are garbed in full storm gear and in the background you see folks strolling in shorts, t-shirts, and bathing suits.
Remember to keep talking down TO BOTH SIDES!
Nah, the OP is into talking down to “both sides”.
It takes all kinds to defeat Hussein, even the “fringe” right wingers I suspect would be strong Democrats if not for the obamination that is Hussein.
“I’ve never heard so much hype over a tropical storm”
All because of the Republican convention.
Many of us remember the screaming anti-American leftists who got all worked up by an allegedly non-partisan weather service to hate Bush and Republicans during Katrina, while the leftists in NO were sabotaging their state to hurt Bush.
Anything goes and Americans are expendible in the leftists’ war on America.
CNN (which I haven’t watched for 5 years at least) is hysterical. Every one of the men have the vapors. It is time
to show what really happened with Katrina, W insisted Blanco let him in, was refused categorically, disaster struck as W tried to tell her, and Perry went and got the survivors and brought them to Texas. Those survivors have NOT gone back to NOLA.
FYI, I did a search on NHS and only found National Honor Society and National Health Service in the first bunches of hits.
Didn’t really care if it was a Weather service of some kind.... the OP wants to believe what they say and assume they don’t have an agenda.
Hahahaha, though I guess I should have searched on NHC and not NHS.
At any rate, I’ve usually discovered that it’s leftists and faux independents who like to TALK DOWN “to both sides”.
The OP believes that there are government agencies that haven’t been politicized despite evidence to the contrary, e.g. Katrina.
“Those of you who don’t have a clue what you’re talking about should just shut up.”
Wow, there really are a LOT of people who wouldn’t ordinarily vote Republican except for this time around.
I don’t see a lot of traditional Republican voters believing what they read/see on TV and telling people to shut up here.
But we ARE about tolerance....
Well, you’ve been talking about health services while we have been talking about weather services. If you don’t know what NHC stands for perhaps you shouldn’t be on a hurricane thread.
“Well, youve been talking about health services while we have been talking about weather services. If you dont know what NHC stands for perhaps you shouldnt be on a hurricane thread.”
Ah, yes. Tolerance and inclusion.
Leftists have the most difficulty with that.
And if you’d bothered to read and notice, instead of one-upsmanning, I HAVE been discussing the weather, and have managed to do so without telling anyone to shut up or leave.
Attention span, too.
Only 38 posts, and you could have read my posts before taking a shot at me.
Interesting, very interesting.
You calling me a leftist?
