Right-winger suggests that Obama CAUSED Hurricane Sandy for political ends.

There's an interesting thread at redstate.com about the fiasco of Project ORCA (the Romney campaign's GOTV operation). In the lead piece and the comments, some folks who seem knowledgeable about computer issues describe the multiple failings of the campaign's honchos and hired consultants.

In among the comments is a real gem from wbb1950. He (I'm guessing "he") begins by disdaining any "conspiracy theory" to explain the election results. He nevertheless sets the groundwork for such a theory, by asking how else one could explain a victory by a president with "a track record of failure in foreign and domestic affairs" against such a credible challenger, and one whom the "credible pollsters" showed to be winning.

We then get 15 numbered paragraphs inviting us to connect the dots. We begin with 2008: McCain was leading in the polls, the financial crash caused him to lose, human beings can cause markets to crash, and Soros did so in Britain in 1992.

Then comes the parallel to 2012:

4. In 2012, Mitt Romney was surging in the polls a week before the
election. Then came the hurricane Sandy. Thereafter he lost the election.

5. No prior hurricane has devastated all major battleground states to this
degree. ... Was this the long awaited October surprise?

6. Human beings have the ability to manipulate weather patterns. Bush 43
set up project HAARP to generate sand storms in Iraq. Obama has expanded
it.

....

15 Would a mind capable of dropping bombs on a civilian population have
moral compunctions against crashing markets and creating storms to secure
political power?


To their credit, even some of the redstaters mock this notion.

I won't worry about this unless it seems that wbb1950 has gotten wind of our plan for the October 2016 earthquake.

Now that they can control the weather, can I put in a request for a rainy but not too rainy winter for California? And no Midwest heat wave next year?

If TheVelveteenOcelot (in #1) is right that we're doing volcanoes next time, wouldn't the blizzard cool off the lava prematurely?

We gotta get better coordinated....

he is right... I mean just LOOK at all the devastation in Ohio, Florida, Nevada, Colorado, Wisconsin, and Virginia!!!

I sure am glad Bush developed the technology so that Obama could use it to suppress the vote of righteous Christian white people in all those states!
