The government is not in session. Who really cares. I also hear there is very little damage.

No, that would have been a 9.0 on the richter scale, she hit a bump and caused the 5.9.

I’m quite certain that Michael Moore is at this moment putting together his movie excoriating O-Vomit for all of his golfing and vacations while the country goes to hell. I mean, if he gored GWB for this, he’ll certainly treat O-Vomit the same way for the same actions, right?

Right?

Seriously, he’s fair and balanced, right?

I hope Irene gets to the mid east coast fast enough that he stays in Martha’s Vineyard, and whoever is paying his rent has to fork out another $50,000 for another weeks stay.

FOX News Radio was reporting that Obummer was just getting started on a golf game when this hit. Does anyone have confirmation of that? Did the Regime put this biking BS out to make him look like he was being a family guy?

The press corp with President Obama in Martha’s Vineyard said they felt slight shaking. Attorney General Eric Holder has been evacuated from the Department of Justice.

Federal officials say two nuclear reactors were taken offline near quake site in Virginia; there was no damage reported.

"The government needs to do something about these natural disasters."

I say we let 'Bammy' create the position of 'Earthquake Csar' with a 1.3 Trillion dollar budget.

Just read a funny one on local tweets on weather.com:

“Apparently it ran along the It’s Your Fault Line from the Capitol to the White House.”

My office and building shook here in DC, near the Pentagon. Nothing fell off the walls, but I was wondering if the ceiling tiles were going to come down.

Earthquakes occur on faults. This one was on Bush’s fault .

Blast and darn, the blamed thing shook me out of my after lunch nap. New Market, Va

According to family in Gimmorah to the south(A_Sheville, NC) it was strong there as well.

Bless us all, Zero looked after us well, at least he couldn’t make it worse than it was.

The Caddis crew is going to Maine as soon as Mooshell and Zero clear out of New England.

I'm hoping a lightning bolt greets him on the course.

I had to check to see whether my dryer was overloaded, here in NC. A friend further south, in Columbia, SC, reported the sonic boom and shaking was "not fun." Clearly some liquefaction contributed to the minor damage and wave propagation elsewhere, and in Occupied DC.

The West Coast must be laughing their fundaments off watching the bureaucrats whine about the disruption to their quality circle, wine and cheese schedules. What a hoot!

First thing that occurred to me was the Usurper's approval ratings must have hit bottom!

Funny thing, I was reading Ann Barnhardt's story about her first earthquake experience in Colorado, the other night, when Virginia 5.8 quake hit here.

I'm waiting for Maxine Waters to complain about the racist tea party being somehow at fault.

Megyn Kelly announced they were evacuating the buildings in DC and the Attorney General was removed from the DOJ...I cheered but unfortunately she added “due to the earthquake.”

You’re just such a manly, inspiring leader........

NOT!

Obama’s team is quickly revising talking points and speeches to include the big earthquake in the list of excuses for our economic mess.

“I heard that OBummer blamed it on Bush and Gore blamed it on Bush and Global warming !!”

The sad thing is that when the double-dip officially hits, Obama will find a way to blame it on this quake.

I think this was put out as a ‘joke’....you know ‘fat arse Mooch’ falling off her bike...

I am in the Warrenton VA area, about 75-100 miles from the ‘epicenter’.
Felt the rumbling and my place shook, nothing fell off the walls or fell over but CAT had more sense than me, she went into closet at the first hint of tremor, I just sat here.
Probably wasn’t a good idea as I am in a garage apartment with the only support under me being the four walls and slab below me - no center walls etc, just wide open space -
Wasn’t ‘bad’ but I kind of likened it being around Quantico when the firing range is in full operation.
No, biggee WP says possible after shocks for a couple of days but we know how they tend to ‘make up the news and lie a lot’.

That wasn’t an earthquake, it was mother earth trying to shake the liberal fleas off of her back in the most infested area.

That’s why California is often hit by them too.
