      Hello ck and xtine, I’m doing well. So far in my area of MD (Montgomery County) we have steady (but not heavy) rain, and slight wind. The worst is expected late this afternoon into this evening and will continue through tomorrow morning.

      Work is closed today and probably will be tomorrow as well. I will be INSIDE for the next 24-48 hrs. :) Take care ck – be safe and hope donna is as well.

    • October 29, 2012 at 8:55 am

      ck, were you able to locate water? Are you alone or with friends or family?

      Everyone in the path, please stay safe and check in when you can.

    Good Morning. I have been up since 4:25am worrying about all those people living in the path of Hurricane Sandy, including my two kids in Philadelphia. Hope all of you have a wonderful day.

    • October 29, 2012 at 10:24 am

      I’m worried about the impact on family, too, Betsey. Have a lot of relatives in New Jersey and our little 2 month old granddaughter is in Alexandria. It’s rainy and windy here in SE PA and everyone seems braced for the worst. We just got an e-mail from our county saying that there will be back up generators in place for voters on November 6 if the electricity is down. Just praying we all dig out of this storm in one piece and everyone is well and online again.

        Yep! The company I work for NEVER EVER closes. Even with those blizzards we had a couple of years ago they opened their doors. Granted only a handful of employees who live close by the office showed up and the rest of us were granted paid leave. To my surprise I got a text from my manager at 10:00PM last night telling me that we were closed today. 2/3rds of our employees commute via public transportation. Once Metro closed down everything they had no choice. Needless to say I wasn’t going in anyway and had already let my staff know that!!!!

        You be safe as well.

      Yes. He’s going back to DC but Bill Clinton will cover for him in Florida and I believe Clinton will join VP Biden in Ohio tomorrow. Latest news is that Pres. Obama will remain in DC today and tomorrow to assess the damage and make sure affected states receive all the help they need.

          Yes, I was concerned last night when I saw that he was scheduled to land in DC at 2:45Pm – which is when the strongest winds will have kicked in. Apart from genuine concerns for his safety, the optics of PBO being stuck in a hurricane from campaigning would be terrible!

    http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/10/28/1102471/romney-ryan-disaster-relief/

    The federal government’s ability to respond to natural disasters, like Hurricane Sandy currently bearing down on the East Coast, would be significantly hindered under a Romney-Ryan administration.
    At least three times, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have publicly demanded that the federal government only disburse disaster relief funding if Congress agreed to offsetting budget cuts elsewhere. This would hold desperately-needed disaster relief funding hostage unless Congress agreed to cuts elsewhere in the budget, an extraordinarily difficult prospect even in normal circumstances.
    Though GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) became the public face of such intransigence in the wake of natural disaster last year, Romney and Ryan have repeatedly made clear they agree with Cantor’s position.

    I seem to remember a certain storm in Cantor’s district that “had to be paid for or offset” before the people in HIS district would be helped in any way!!

    I’ve been thinking about this massive storm. Got up in the middle of the night to check. I’m from the East Coast…have family and friends there that I worry about. I worry about those in the path of this storm that I DON’T KNOW! These selfish, self serving bastards have NO PROBLEM handing OUR money to oil companies for their subsidies, but when it comes to disasters that effect millions of ordinary Americans? Well…we have a fight on our hands and have to offset that money somewhere else! This is BS. That’s why we PAY taxes! We DON’T pay taxes to give our money away to oil companies!

    I’ve been in a few hurricanes in my life. No fun.I was in them all alone because my husband would have to leave with his ship (Navy) and go out to sea where the ships were safer. Newborn baby and me at home.It was scary. When these natural disasters occur, how the federal govt responds, means everything. This is one of those times when we do better as a country,,,when we pull together and help out neighbors and friends. When crews come in from surrounding states…and sometimes Canada, after the storm and help those states get their infrastructure put back together again…where we’re truly, all in this together.

    Neighbor looking out for neighbor…making sure that everyone is alright and safe. In every small strand of a community, all the way up to the federal govt…caring for the citizens together, and doing what needs to be done to make the community whole again. This is the best of us. This is what Americans do for each other in a time of need. I would ask all those “taxed enough already” folks…if they have depended on the feds after this storm. I would ask if they are grateful. I don’t think that RWNJ’s LIKE the fact that they see govt work well. I would contend that it almost upsets them to see a well oiled govt help its citizens through trying times…it undermines the meme that govt is broken and can’t do anything, therefore, we don’t need it….another reason in their long laundry list of just why they hate PBO…because he makes the govt work well, and be accountable to ALL THE PEOPLE!! Not just a select few….and along the way, in a disaster like this…have the better angels in all of us come out to help one another. Double wammy. I pray for the safety of all those in this storms path…but understand that we will all get through this. Together.

      Great post, DF. This is 1000 percent on the mark. Selfishness only carries you so far. In times of need or disaster it can kill you. We all need each other.

It’s a whole community planning together to protect each other.

    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/10/romney-fundraiser-obama-business-evil

    Ever since I revealed Mitt Romney’s 47 percent rant, tips and tapes have come through the transom—including this and this. And another source who asked not to be identified just sent me an audio recording of a private Mitt Romney fundraiser from earlier this year. At this event, Romney didn’t decry half of the nation, but he and Ann Romney each expressed disdain for President Barack Obama, with the Republican presidential candidate asserting that Obama considers businesspeople “a necessary evil” and his wife suggesting that the president was not a “grown-up.”

    snip/

    After being introduced, the Republican candidate noted that he had been pushed into his second campaign for president by his wife:

    David, you mentioned Ann, and the fact that she insisted that I get in this race. That is the truth. I wanted to talk it over with her. And every time I’d say, “Let’s talk about the pros and cons,” she’d say, “Talk to the hand, talk to the hand. We’re just doing this. We’ve got to do it.” And so she absolutely insisted that I get in this because she was convinced that I was the only one that had the capacity to beat President Obama.

    MUCH more BS in here….goodness sakes they live in a fantasy world of selfish ugliness…

    HEADLINE: Latino Decisions: Obama 73, Romney 21 with Hispanic voters

    //Barack Obama’s 52-point lead in the new Latino Decisions tracking poll matches his widest advantage of the year: Overall, Obama has the support of 73% of all Latino registered voters, compared to 21% who favor Romney. The 52-point gap matches the largest gap among Latinos this year, also found in the October 1 tracking poll.

    For the ten weeks the impreMedia-Latino Decisions poll has been taken the most important issue for Latinos consistently has been the economy and the latest release revealed that Romney and the Republican party have been unable to convince Latino voters that they will be better at improving the it. Seventy-three percent of Latino voters trust Obama and the Democrats to make the right decisions to improve the economy compared to only 18% that trust Romney and the Republicans. //

          In coming back to the blog after lunch I saw a Yahoo News title saying Romney’s campaign said he supports government FEMA program. I did not click on the title to read the article since it is not surprising to me that Mitt would walk back his earlier opinion. He has no opinions only views he think will get him further with that audience in that moment.

      Except, we saw that guy who “gets it, knows it” – and it is a whole lot better since he came on the scene. Whenever I hear people talking as though nothing got done in the first term, I know they actually have no facts to draw on. Anyone who’s been paying attention and participating in all these battles that President Obama has fought, knows exactly what good he’s done in these first four years. They also know that it’s critical that he get a second term so he can get the credit for that work. And that he could do zero in a second term and still go down in history as a transformative President.

Also just got an email this morning that we may be moving the final push to a larger facility. We must be keeping the Operations Manager busy finding us places large enough for us to GOTV.

    Thankfully, AF1 has landed at Andrews—— after a “sometimes turbulent” flight.

      TY, I was pretending I wasn’t a little unnerved by that flight. Pilots are excellent. But, please don’t go flying around in this weird weather! I understand they were driving from AAFB.

    Typical male.

    A man and a harried looking woman arrive at a supermarket at the same time and there is only one shopping cart. The woman asks the man if he wants that shopping cart. The man says, ” No, You take it. I am here to buy only one item”.

    As the woman takes the cart, the man hears her mutter “Typical male”.

    G’day mates. To you on the Eastern seaboard, I wish you well and safe harbor until the storm blows over. We’re not like Navy ships that can steam out of harms way so we must stand and suffer what the sea offers. When this storm clears I fear that our coastline will be permanently altered and folks who haven’t paid attention or couldn’t will pay a terrible price.
    Sorry for the word salad. Just remembering some hurricane/typhoons I’ve lived through.

    Does this mean the President has returned to the White House? Where was he? Isn’t Michelle out in Iowa? I wish they were all in the White House safe and sound. Maybe Bill will stay in Florida, be safer there than trying to return to NYC.

    I think in Colirado early voting, we are not gaining because, young kids are probably voting for Gary Johnson.
    Why?
    Because legalizing Marijuana is on the ballot in that state.
    Just a supposition, but it makes sense, unfortunately!

    A question for the pundits here, when do the Ads start and where showing Romney’s statements calling for abolition of FEMA and the statement that disaster aid is immoral??

    On a sunny and crisp 50 degree day in Iowa, where the hurricane will have no direct effect on the election, the first lady said “our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy, and Barack has assured state and local authorities that he is going to cut through red tape” before launching into an emotional campaign speech that had echoes of her remarks last month at the Democratic National Convention.

    “This election is a choice about the America that we want to leave for our kids and our grandkids,” Obama said to a ballroom of supporters here Monday afternoon. She praised her husband’s record, citing his health-care overhaul, the end of the war in Iraq and the killing of Osama bin Laden.

    “Yes, while we still have more work to do to completely rebuild our economy, there are more and more signs everyday that we are moving in the right direction,” the first lady continued, citing more than 30 months of private sector growth.

    Late Monday afternoon she is scheduled to hold a similar event in Sioux City. Iowa is where the road to the White House began for the Obamas in 2008, and Michelle Obama said being back in the state brought her to a ”full circle” moment.
