the Republicans were foolish (stupid?) enough to schedule their convention during the height of hurricane season (it peaks on September 10) in a city quite susceptible to being hit by a hurricane.
The Republicans did NOT schedule their convention in New Orleans.
You are off by at least a 1,000 miles, is my guess.
Who is foolish (stupid?) now?
I mean, c'mon, what were they thinking? I'd be laughing at the dems if they did the same thing. I think they deserve to be laughed at.
The DEMs scheduled their convention just last week.
It was ALSO scheduled during hurricane season.
So I guess you'll be laughing at them as well?

What they DO say is that it is funny how a hurricane is going to be hitting New Orleans at the same time as the Republican convention, when the Republican response to the last hurricane to hit New Orleans (Katrina) was and continues to be appalling. They find the irony of this funny because it was the effects of Katrina which showed the Republicans for what they really were and turned the tide in this country for many against Republicans.

You guys have effectively exposed BOTH the left and right as scumbags.
Bravo. Now that you guys have exposed BOTH SIDES as total maniacs, we need to start voting independant and get rid of the 2 partys that are destroying this nation.
Good thread, starred and flagged. Good work everyone who posted videos etc, despite you guys are fighting a partisan battle agianst each other, the fact remains
Collectively, in your fight to expose each other. Both sides have been Exposed. two thumbs up
I just heard on the news, Barack has no plans to go down there.. apparently his personal entourage is too large and would get in the way.. I guess he's going to play it safe and lend his support from afar.

I'm sure he would be able to do that. He might even help with the heavy lifting. I'm sure McCain would if his back wouldn't break.

I think it's a huge and false stretch to apply what Mr. Fowler said to the entire Democratic party. You might as well try to pose his statements as representing all men, or all caucasians....... it would be equally misleading.

Surely you are aware that there is a MAJOR difference between 'torrential rain' and a hurricaine, aren't you? It should go without saying that one is simply an inconvenince while the other poses serious threats to life and property.

I know a Republican who laughed when his neighbor's cat was run over. Should I make a thread about that?
Yeah let's just all not vote and go attack the White House!!! Another brilliant idea All these "radicals" are the same.
