  •  This is scandalous (14+ / 0-)

    but what is MSNBC talking about right now? Oh, they're rehashing the "IRS Scandal". Again. What a bunch of bullshit. This issue should be front and center, segued into after talking about cleanup efforts in Oklahoma.

    Starving the weather prediction capability for the eastern US strikes me as particularly evil--so many seniors here in Florida, and it's hard enough to get them to evacuate during a hurricane when the information is accurate. smh...

    •  if Obama wants it front and center, he should go (6+ / 0-)

      there, stand on a pile of rubble with a megaphone and say "SAVE NOAA NOW! Congress, it's up to you."
      Now I can't say I've watched all the blah blah about anything on Teevee lately, so if I've missed that statement, and everybody arguing about how many weather balloons go up in one day globally and what good does it do, mea culpa. But all I'm hearing is crickets about this important stuff.

      Maybe we could ask Colin Powell about weather balloons. Maybe he's learned a thing or two about them, even though it was after his testimony and not before it, unfortunately...

      •  Obama has been using his bully pulpit (1+ / 0-)

        as a confrontation shelter for five years.  Getting to be a bit pathological, if you ask me.
