    God, he is clueless. So desperate for something, anything to take the spotlight off of himself.

    The only thing historic is the level of his failure.

    Katrina was historical. Irene? We'll see. Joe Bastardi says it could be one of the worst of the century. He's usually right too.

    Don't you usually wait until after a disaster to make judgements about it?

    I'm sure Obama wants it to be bad so he can be seen as the rescuer.

    OK, what is NOT historic about Hurricane Irene. Please explain.

    If someone is cruel, stupid and partisan, they might just jump top such a conclusion. But, it takes those peculiar qualities to assume such a thing in the first place, doesn't it?

    Perhaps we should wait until after the hurricane ends before pronouncing it historic.

    But then maybe he is right. After all, isn't everything we do and everything that happens historic after it happens?

    If it were an historic hurricane, a wise person would probably cut short his vacation and get back to the business of doing his job. However, the current person in the White House doesn't have a real good track record of showing up at disaster areas until several days after the fact.

    It may be a really bad hurricane, but I don't know if I could qualify it as "historic." Let's hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

    Historic means it's in the past.

    Everytime I think that certain Rightie posters can't get any lower and be any sillier in what they whine about, along comes someone like the OP to prove me wrong.
