In contrast, President Obama really shored up the agency, appointing William Fugate who had run the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Now, FEMA is getting kudos, EVEN FROM REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS, most recently from Chris Christie, the corpulent Republican governor of New Jersey, who praised Obama's and FEMA's response to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy.
And now we have Mitt Romney on record as saying he would dismantle FEMA and send it to the states. Republicans hate government so much, they want to take it over and dismantle it, spreading the lucre amongst their own cronies. Same old story.
I have faith that the American people will do the right thing and re-elect Obama. What I do NOT have faith in is all of the electronic voting machines that produce NO paper trail whatsoever. Most of these companies that produce these unverifiable voting machines are owned by Republicans, and, as above, I do NOT have faith that they will do the right thing. It's too bad one of our major political parties seems intent on destroying the United States government.
