Laugh Of The Day-Rush: “He’s fat and a fool. Don’t listen to Governor Christie."

“He’s fat and a fool. Don’t listen to Governor Christie. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” But Limbaugh clinched the quote with his reasoning for being so vicious: “He makes fun of me all the time.”

MITTENS To The Rescue!!! Romney sending CAMPAIGN BUS for Hurricane Sandy relief

Disaster aid, Mitt-style: Romney sending campaign bus for Hurricane Sandy relief
by Laura Clawson


Mitt Romney faces a major challenge looking like he cares about or would, as president, respond effectively to a disaster like Hurricane Sandy, especially given that during the primaries he called disaster relief "immoral." So while President Barack Obama has left the campaign trail to coordinate emergency response, Romney is looking for a way to seem relevant and caring. And he's hit on ... sending his campaign bus to "help with disaster relief."

Romney was originally slated to campaign over the weekend in Virginia, but canceled plans there and joined running mate Paul Ryan in Ohio. Curt Cashour, Romney's Virginia communications director, tweeted Monday that the campaign bus will instead be used to transport basic supplies to local storm-relief centers.

The Romney campaign will also be collecting supplies at its offices in North Carolina, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania.

Wyoming Ballot Includes Unconstitutional Attack On Obamacare

Wyoming Ballot Includes Unconstitutional Attack On Obamacare
By Ian Millhiser on Oct 31, 2012 at 2:10 pm



Before the Supreme Court largely upheld the Affordable Care Act against a legal challenge that had no basis “in either the text of the Constitution or Supreme Court precedent,” right-wing lawmakers tried to undermine health reform through unconstitutional state laws or ballot initiatives claiming that parts of Obamacare simply did not apply in their state. The fact that these efforts violates the Constitution’s explicit text, which provides that duly enacted federal laws “shall be the supreme law of the land” did not seem to bother them in the least.

Months after the Supreme Court turned away the spurious legal attacks on health reform, conservative Wyoming lawmakers are still pushing this unconstitutional effort to undermine it with a proposed state constitutional amendment that will be on the ballot next week. And their unconstitutional nullification amendment is unusually explicit about the direct conflict it presents with federal law & the Constitution:



No federal or state law, rule or administrative decision shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer or health care provider to participate in any health care system



Ultimately, these kinds of unconstitutional attacks on a entirely valid federal law are cruelest to the conservative voters who turn out to support them. If this initiative passes, many Wyomians will be left with the entirely false impression that they no longer have to comply with a federal law. Some of them may even break the law as a result. But their legal obligations under the Affordable Care Act will not change one bit, even if the proponents of this amendment deceive them into thinking they have.

US Navy sends in carriers to help NY, NJ after Sandy Barack Obama to visit flood-ravaged areas of th

Source: MSNBC

The U.S. Navy is sending three helicopter carrier ships to the coast off New York and New Jersey to help rescue and recovery operations in the wake of superstorm Sandy, officials told NBC News.
Navy officials said USS Wasp, USS Carter Hall, and USS Mesa Verde had been ordered to head to the area to provide landing platforms for Coast Guard, National Guard and civilian agency helicopters if needed.

The Atlantic Fleet command made the decision in the name of "prudent planning," officials said.

The USS Mesa Verde, seen in 2009, has been ordered to go to waters off the New York and New Jersey coasts.

With six days to go before the Nov. 6 elections, President Barack Obama will visit flood-ravaged areas of the New Jersey shore, where the storm made landfall on Monday.
