    Perdue asks Obama to declare state of emergency  | ajc.com

    ONE argument I have heard fro many conservatives and I assume GOP supporters on this board is that Obama is trying to provide health insurance to people against the will of the US Constituion. I am asking if these same people feel the same way about other Federal agencies, such as FEMA? Is FEMA too intrusive? Does it fly in the face of the Constitution? Where in the Constitution does it state that FEMA will help the states that ask for it? Why is a Republican governor asking for Federal help in the first place?

    But that is basically the same reason Obama wants to reshape our healthcare system?

    I think that we should be diplomatic about this situation, however, a Russian invasion should not be tolerated.

    So, based on McConnell stating his mother NEEDS MediCare, and now the Republican Governor of Georgia is reching out to our Federal Govenrment for aid (money), all the while the GOP is bashing Obama for his planned overhaul of healthcare, because "it costs too much". Do you all understand how the rest of us might get confused on what you are really pissing and moaning about?

    So is it your contention that since Georgia has a Republican governor they are not entitled to receive the same help as say a state like Iowa that flooded recently which has a Democrat governor?

    The stoopid cons are pissing and moaning because they are out of a power, because they are a diminishing minority, and because they can't stop modern-progressivism. Tuff luck.

    That one's easy...It's Sonny Perdue.

    He's one of those squishy "moderate" (read: leftist) republicans, who can't wait to get their mitts on the reins and act like democratics.

    Charlie Christ, Tim Pawlenty and John Huntsman are other prime examples.

    In my opinion, the people of the state of Georgia need to take care of themselves, instead of looking for the feds to wipe their butt for them.

    Sonny is not a constructionist. He is a politician. Big difference. He is squishy like Dude said.
