Don't politicize an emergency

On a radio show this weekend, the governor of Maryland right in the middle of storm preps for hurricane Sandy chose to get political.

But being political is one thing. Being down right loony is another.

Martin O'Malley first regaled the host saying they needed to uncouple from the profit model when it comes to utility companies.

Governor, I hate to tell you this, but electricity companies are in the business to make money.

This guy is a governor and he said this , but he's just getting warmed up.

He and I are about the same age, so here we go.

He said the power grid from Maryland was okay for the storms of the 70s, but not ready for the more violent storms of now a days.

Did we not have violent storms in the 1970s? We had hurricanes.

I grew up on the Gulf Coast of Texas. We had hurricanes.

Has he never heard of Hurricane Andrew in Florida?

What about Camille back in the 60s? Betsy, Carla, I could go on and on.

This storm Sandy does have a record breaking low pressure. But the reason this storm is so dangerous is it's hitting a very populated area and it's interacting with another storm to the west.

He's saying storms are far more frequent since we heated up the atmosphere.

According to whom, Cher?

I think the radio host just moves on and says there are more question on another day realizing the governor was off in the paw-paw bushes during a serious situation.

We mentioned just a few weeks ago another huge hole in the greenhouse gas defense.

The main stream media hates that as much as they hate asking questions about Benghazi.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Not finished, are the most demented, crude, insensitive, demonic, rediculous, redneck on the planet...if you at all stick to the subject, you are vile and wrong...if not, you spew more venom than an asp, have a heart of stone, and truthfully aren't worth the air you breathe. But we do have free speech in this country and, just as you have the right to run your sewer mouth about things, I have as much right to call you out for being such a disgrace as an American. OBAMA 11/6/2012!

Charles, you are certifiable!! As for using this tragedy for personal benefit, you've no farther to look than willard's "faux" campaign rally/food collection farce...his campaign bought $5000 in canned goods from WalMart (Waltons have given millions to willard's run) and handed a few cans to those who did not bring their own...President Obama, as president of ALL Americans, is doing what he swore to do the day he took the rebuild and restore those impacted by Sandy.

If I thought global warming threw one storm at that nest of rats in New York then, Id charcoal broil every meal.
