Bill Clinton Already Cracking Hurricane Sandy Jokes

Posted by on Oct 29, 2012 at 9:35 am

Nothing quite says humor like cracking funny over a potentially catastrophic storm possibly affecting 50 million people.

On the eve of a hurricane-induced break in the political season, Bill Clinton gave Democrats a 30-minute pep talk Sunday, framing U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy’s race for U.S. Senate as an election of national interest.

“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said. He waited a beat, then added, “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”

A regular laugh riot. People may die from the storm, but hey, it’s nothing compared to what those Republicans will do!

Meanwhile, the Washington press corps is waiting for Mitt Romney to politicize the hurricane.

During a weekend press gaggle aboard Air Force One, White House reporters were naturally concerned about Hurricane Sandy and questioned the White House Press staff about the president’s hurricane preparations.

But one reporter was anxious to know if they were prepared for Mitt Romney.

“Are you worried about the possible politicization of the storm response?” the reporter asked. “We’re a week out from the election.  Governor Romney might say something about how you guys are responding to it or going to rallies and that stuff.”

Romney can say nothing but will wind up being blamed.

    Both Bill and Barry don’t care about people’s lives, they care about winning elections. Benghazi/ Sandy/ Whatever.

    The President continued campaigning while Hurricane Isaac tore the Gulf apart; he continued campaigning while US soil was attacked and American lives were lost. He took a lot of political heat for that, even from the press.

    Now he has suspended campaigning in order to monitor the developments of Hurricane Sandy. He’s learning, but that’s a pretty shallow learning curve.

    Clinton and his she-hag have never been classy, except when compared to the amoral, classless filth that continue to vote for the progtards that want to destroy our country and put us all on the government plantation of dependency.

    Bill didn’t make a joke. He made a factual statement.

    That ranks right up there with “I did not have sex with that woman”.

    Thanks for playing Pat!

    Patricia is actually right.

    If you don’t make the right choice in this election (you notice he DIDN’T say to vote for Choomboy), the devastation will be catastrophic.

    Which is a true statement.
