I truly believe that if the Yellowstone super volcano was to explode in a Krakatoa like event that there are a solid group of FReepers who will thump their chest and tell you it isnt all that bad or outright claim the whole thing is exaggerated. I wouldnt be surprise to hear them go up to the Lord after Armageddon and say: Lord why all the hype in the Book of Revelations? I mean it wasnt all that bad.
Worse yet is all of the ODS Ive seen here on FR. Yes Bama is horrible, yes he HAS GOT TO GO, but these people act like Bama either conjurered up the storm or the whole thing is some Machiavellian plot out of a bad suspense novel. LIFE goes on, things happen. The storm doesnt know or care that its election time or what BAMA has done to this country.
I wouldnt be surprised to hear of people who believed so much that the hurricane is just some leftist plot that they are caught unprepared for the storm and dying as a result of it crying out Its Obamas fault with their last breath!
Some seem to have reached a point where if they go to the doctor next week and he tells them that they have cancer it will be Obamas fault! Or if they have a flat tire on the way to work next week it will be Obamas fault! If you step on a crack and break your mothers back it will be Obamas fault!
To me this is the talk, methods and the mindset of the leftist. Its the same shill BS they spewed against George Bush. I thought we are better than that. I know we should be better than that. I am sure that we can be better than that.
The other thing I notice is that is the me, me, me mindset so many seem to be taking with this storm. Hell this storm will most likely KILL people and heres people who are supposedly conservatives sounding like leftist. Everything is me me me. How is the Hurricane going to effect the election? And so on its sickening. So people are going to die and homes get lost and peoples lives get turned upside down and inside out, well thats bad but how is it going to effect me? I guess it doesnt matter what losses occur as long as it doesnt effect the election. Seems many on FR have their priorities screwed up.
Just remember a few points, Kart:
First, this is the regime that gave us the phrase, “Never let a crisis go to waste”. This weather couldn’t have happened at a better time for Odinga, personally. It blew Benghazi off the networks for a few days.
The media meme is going to be “Obama cares about the storm victims, UNLIKE GEORGE W. BUSH!” It’s already started on CNN-Obama with the fake Latina Soledad O’brien. The drumbeat of Katrina comparisons will escalate as the days go on.
Sandy itself was at max a Cat 1 storm. The other weather events that ties into it produced the more widespread problems. But this whole thing will be fuel for the disaster porn that will pervade the media and stifle the political climate.
