1. Obama should ask Barbour to kiss his ass and declare himself and his entire state a socialist
before he sees a dime.

15. don't let this post or the comments bother you
most are just venting - they are angry with the hypocrisy of Barbour and his fellow compassionate conservatives. They don't mean you or others any harm and they wouldn't agree to withholding resources from you or any of those impacted by this disaster.

welcome to DU and try to remember that sometimes you just have to take what is posted with a grain of salt. For many, all they can do is vent on message boards, they are frightened and frustrated and mocking the likes of Barbour and his ilk is a much needed release.

18. what merh said...all of us (well, I can't speak for everyone, but I'm pretty confident about this)
have our hearts in the right place and want every bit of help the government can provide to get to those who are hurting, as quickly as possible. We're just pissed off ( as you no doubt are too, as a fellow progressive) at the sickening hypocrisy of the right wing , and are expressing that. Best wishes and prayers to those that are hurting in Mississippi .

7. The same gov who shunned stimulus funds wants a handout on his terms?

Mississippi's governor shuns stimulus, stuns lawmaker

JACKSON, Miss. -- House Speaker Billy McCoy appeared incredulous Monday that Gov. Haley Barbour is willing to reject $2.6 billion in badly needed federal stimulus money while state government deals with a shortfall that could reach $310 million by June 30.

17. Obama should make him beg for it
He should be publicly humiliated for the way he handled the stimulus out money.

ask for it in person and then have him apologize for all his socialist remarks before cutting a check.
