It was Bush’s “Fault”.

Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all week. Try the veal.

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.

Obama has brought the country so far down to hell that the devil is rising to claim his throne.

The earthquake happened along George Bush’s Fault.

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.

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?

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.”

Gee Zero,

Were you wearing your helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads in case you fell down?

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

NOT!

ROTFLMAO.

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

Has Al Gore blamed Global Warming for causing the earthquake yet?
