A picture is worth a 1000 words.

True but not funny.

As usual, Sack, a DFL controlled mouth piece can't tell the whole truth. Romney wants to give the money back to the states to let them handle disasters.

The federal government will be far more effective at its legitimate functions - like protecting citizens from Mother Nature's vicious capricousness - if it remains focused, and limits itself to carefully selected and constitutionally-legitimized priorities.

So if this cartoon is a half truth, maybe Sacks can go back and do one about the Detroit ads... and Romney's position there, or about the loopholes he plans to close but is keeping secret, or his taxes, or the increase in military spending or 20% tax cut, while cutting the deficit. Then again, how about just one more cartoon about ALL the baggage he is carrying or the pie in the sky promises he makes. And if all else fails, how about a cartoon about everything he is going to do on his first day in office. Might be cheaper just to do an entire comic book.

"Romney wants to give the money back to the states to let them handle disasters." ....... And that is why Chris Christie is effusively praising Obama. He realizes New Jersey doesn't and would NEVER have the financial resources to deal with a catastrophe of epic proportions like the one they are dealing with right now. It is only through the collective will and resources of our entire nation that we are able to deal with tragedies like this one.

>>> And that is why Chris Christie is effusively praising Obama.

I think Jon Stewart got it right when he said that giving the money to the state would work really well when the state's infrastructure was washed out to sea. Can you imagine each state trying to coordinate disaster aid when the disaster ares is the whole NE seacoast. Now that would be chaos with resources going nowhere all at once. Lose the ideological blinders; somethings need a federal response.
