Clinton Rips Romney For Criticizing Obama Promise "To Turn Back The Seas"

Bill Clinton: “I was actually listening closely to what the candidates said in these debates. In the first debate, the triumph of the moderate Mitt Romney. You remember what he did? He ridiculed the President. Ridiculed the President for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial ways. He said ‘Oh, you’re going to turn back the seas.’ In my part of America, we would like it if someone could’ve done that yesterday. All up and down the East Coast, there are mayors, many of them Republicans, who are being told, ‘You’ve got to move these houses back away from the ocean. You’ve got to lift them up.

Climate change is going to raise the water levels on a permanent basis. If you want your town insured, you have to do this.’ In the real world, Barack Obama’s policies work better.” (Bill Clinton, Remarks, Minneapolis, MN, 10/30/12)

1. I noticed that M$Greedia went for his FEMA comments

but did not add his Convention joke about climate change.
Both are important - thanks Bubba!!!

2. In the aftermath

of this disaster, Romney has proven what many have suspected. He's a buffoon. This jackass will say anything and then deny it a minute later.
His behavior and remarks have rendered him unfit for public office.
It will take a nationally coordinated effort to relieve the suffering from Hurricane Sandy. The agency in place is called FEMA, and it must be fully funded like the military.
If anyone can recall, Eric "Anal Leakage" Cantor played politics with emergency spending in the face of another disaster just last year. He and his fellow hosebag Republicans demanded spending cuts in other areas, excepting the military, before approving spending on Americans who were clearly suffering.
Why do swine like this get elected? Wake up America and purge the Republican Party from the political landscape.
