Introducing the Inverse Benghazi

Posted by on Tue, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:05 PM

For this new idea (Sandy is the inverse of Benghazi), we have the confused mind of the former head of FEMA (yes, the very horse judge who did a number on New Orleans) to thank...

While Romney surrogate Chris Christie is making waves for the heaps of praise he's been giving the President all morning for his emergency preparedness, one guy who is unimpressed with the President's response is the old FEMA director who was in charge during Hurricane Katrina. Think Progress found this quote from Michael "heckuvajob Brownie" Brown criticizing the President for responding to the storm too quickly:

“One thing he’s gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [the hurricane] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in…Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas?” Brown says. “Why was this so quick?… At some point, somebody’s going to ask that question…. This is like the inverse of Benghazi.”

The GOP has become a zoo of the bizarre.

Clearly the NOAA is more reliable than the CIA.

Let's see. Why WOULD the President want to take so seriously a massive unstoppable storm directly threatening the lives and well being of nearly 100 Million of his fellow citizens along with the economic engine of 40% of the country?

As upposed to, say, a terrorist attack with no advanced warning outside US borders that only potentially threatens maybe a dozen US citizens. Hmmmmmm?

The right wing really misses Gadhafi.

If only the National Weather Service had given us several days' warning about Benghazi! Where were they?!

There is no "there" there. He's looking for any excuse to bash Obama. I suppose if you have no leg to stand on, then you grab at anything you can.

"Heck of a Job Brownie" has a lot of balls to be making any comments about anything given his handling of Hurricane Katrina..

The one thing I can say about Repubs -- they have absolutely no shame.
