Weathering the storm

          Some 10-day vacation on Martha’s Vineyard for President Obama.
       Guess the old adage pertains that says a president is never really on vacation because he’s informed about the news of the world 24/7.
       So while the prez was on vacay here’s what happened:
       Moammar Khaddafi was deposed as Libya’s despot.
       An earthquake rattled the East Coast.
       Hurricane Irene caused billions of dollars in damage to several states along the Eastern Seaboard.
       Fox News and its Republican presidential candidates can’t blame Obama for going on vacation and claim he wasn’t working.
       But they can blame the natural disasters of the past week because Obama went on vacation.
       Foxholes like Sean Hannity and Baba O’Rielly will belch that Obama didn’t lead enough during the hurricane crisis.
       Sure, he had that photo-op at FEMA HQ on Saturday. BFD.
       Now about that federal money to the states affected. Somewhere around $7 billion. Not for those states with Republican governors. They voted for guys who are Reaganphile anti-government zombies.
       No billions for you!
       The government would like to help out, but, gosh darn it, we just can’t afford it.
       Maybe you guys can get the funds from your campaign contributors:  The top 2 percent of the wealthy in America (that’s you, Mitt), or CEOs of banks and Wall Street, or Big Pharma or oil and other major corporations.
       Or you can pray for it.
       Speaking of Good Christian Candidates, GOP presidential hopeful Michele “Corndog” Bachmann told a crowd of supporters Monday that the earthquake and hurricane were messages from God.
       Which begs the question: Why does God always speak in wrath?
       Turns out Hurricane Irene wasn’t the Old Testament angry God warning that zealot TV evangelist Pat Robertson prophesied the day before.
       Can’t the Almighty just one time send an e-mail or tweet that’s positive? And, no, that doesn’t include his picking one team over the other to win the Super Bowl.
       Strangely, some people in the path of the storm tweeted that the hurricane was disappointing.
       You can almost hear somebody in the Bronx bombasting, “You’re freakin’ kiddin’ right? You seriously think an Irene is gonna freak us out? Gedouttamyeyes! You wanna try freakin’ us out, give us a freakin’ Hurricane Vinnie, you mooks!”
       Tough crowd, those Easterners.
