    Was it the storm coming or the storm brewing in his mouth? I think it's the latter and the former is the excuse.

    Tropical Storm ISAAC Forecast Discussion
    GIVEN THAT THE CYCLONE HAS FARED RATHER WELL AFTER MOVING ACROSS
    HAITI...AND THAT THE TRACK FORECAST HAS ONLY MINIMAL INTERACTION
    WITH CUBA...THE INTENSITY FORECAST AFTER 12 HOURS HAS BEEN ADJUSTED
    UPWARD FOLLOWING THE TREND OF THE LATEST INTENSITY GUIDANCE. ISAAC
    IS EXPECTED TO BECOME A HURRICANE IN ABOUT 36 HOURS...WITH
    ADDITIONAL INTENSIFICATION EXPECTED AS THE CYCLONE MOVES INTO THE
    EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT. THE NEW NHC
    INTENSITY FORECAST IS CLOSE TO THE INTENSITY CONSENSUS AIDS THROUGH
    72 HOURS AND FOLLOWS A BLEND OF THE DECAY SHIPS AND LGEM AFTERWARD.

    He couldn't find Florida on a map would be my guess.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong but I think Obama may have conceded Florida...I don't recall him being there lately. Seems odd. He's in Ohio very often. Does anyone know the last time Obama was in Florida on a campaign swing?

    Not sure. But I'm checking records of Tee times at golf courses throughout the state so an accurate report is sure to follow.

    Frankly, I'd prefer a category 1 Isaac to cat 5 blowhard Joe.
    On a serious note, the sucker is headed straight at me.

    Biden was informed it was the Republican Convention being held there this week not the Democratic Convention.

    Vice Presidents need to be ready to serve at a moments notice. What is the chance of safely flying Vice President Biden out of Tampa in a cat 1 or better hurricane?
