    Would we have funds for disaster relief if obama hadn't squandered the stimulus money on his green energy slush funds?

    When we have an unexpected event like disaster aid where does the money come from? If you had an unexpected cost personally, say your transmission goes out on your car, what do you do? Pay for it and cut back on other things until it's paid off? Put it on a credit card and forget about it? If your smart you could take it out of the savings you have for emergency. Seeing as our government isn't very smart we have no savings for emergency. The Tea Party would take the first option and pay for it and cut back on other things until it's paid off. Most, probably all, libs would put it on the credit card and try to forget about it which will eventually will lead to a bankruptcy. Which would be the smarter path ?

    Oh yes, but they are going to wait until after the election to sabotage the relief operation, until then they will be acting as if they give a shit.

    It would be the responsible thing to do.

    Sooner or later, democrats are going to realize that most of the damage occurred in the most affluent areas and scream about helping out all those rich people.
