IT is OBAMA and OBAMACARE!!!!!.......
The Soviet Union suffered from 70 years of ‘drought’ - a weird malaise that only affected crop-production within the political boundaries of the USSR.
It will be the same for the US, but the absurdity will be heightened because *all* the failures of American Socialism for the next four years will be blamed on one CAT 1 storm.
Leftists may pray for more natural disasters like Sandy then, so they can wipe away all past and future Leftists’ failure.
/Hint: it works for Leftists ONLY
I would hope there is someone more able than I am who could check the job market losses after the other big hurricanes.
A far bigger impact of Superstorm Sandy, is that for a few days at least, it made Bronco Bama LOOK presidential, while virtually denying Mitt Romney opportunity to make any kind of last-minute appeal to reason about the shortcomings of the failed regime of the Current Occupant.
‘Tis an ill wind....
Because once re-elected, The Won never has to lift a finger to help the victims of Sandy. He has sloughed off all the recovery efforts to the states themselves, as he has much bigger fish to fry, and they were going to vote for him no matter what.
Sandy’s fault (palm to forehead)
The b*tch set us up!
1938 September - New England Hurricane of 1938 - Strong Category 3. Wind gusts reached Category 5 strength in eastern Connecticut, Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts west of Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod. The anemometer at the Blue Hill Observatory registered a peak wind gust of 186 m.p.h. before the instrument broke. The hurricane lost strength as it tracked into interior areas of New England, but it is believed to have been at Category 2 intensity as it crossed into Vermont and at minimal Category 1 intensity as it tracked into Quebec. The storm killed over 600 people and is considered to be the worst hurricane to strike New England in modern times.
This presupposes that there WERE job market gains.
I do not recollect any.
I remember the Ugandan Bus accidents that killed 500.
The first four years were Bush’s fault. The next four years will be billed as Sandy’s fault.
