Obama Says "Louisiana Purchase" in Obamacare Will Cover Earthquake in Hawaii… Um… What Earthquake in Hawaii? (Video)

Either Obama’s completely making up stuff now or we all missed some horrible devastating earthquake in Hawaii…
President Obama said tonight that he agreed with “The Louisiana Purchase” in Obamacare because it also covered the earthquake in Hawaii:

FOX News posted the exchange:

BAIER: Do you know which specific deals are in or out, as of today?

OBAMA: I am certain that we’ve made sure, for example, that any burdens on states are alleviated, when it comes to what they’re going to have to chip in to make sure that we’re giving subsidies to small businesses, and subsidies to individuals, for example.

BAIER: So the Connecticut deal is still in?

OBAMA: So that’s not — that’s not going to be something that is going to be in this final package. I think the same is true on all of these provisions. I’ll give you some exceptions though.

Something that was called a special deal was for Louisiana. It was said that there were billions — millions of dollars going to Louisiana, this was a special deal. Well, in fact, that provision, which I think should remain in, said that if a state has been affected by a natural catastrophe, that has created a special health care emergency in that state, they should get help. Louisiana, obviously, went through Katrina, and they’re still trying to deal with the enormous challenges that were faced because of that.


OBAMA: That also — I’m giving you an example of one that I consider important. It also affects Hawaii, which went through an earthquake. So that’s not just a Louisiana provision. That is a provision that affects every state that is going through a natural catastrophe.

Now I have said that there are certain provisions, like this Nebraska one, that don’t make sense. And they needed to be out. And we have removed those. So, at the end of the day, what people are going to be able to say is that this legislation is going to be providing help to small businesses and individuals, across the board, in an even handed way, and providing people relief from a status quo that’s just not working.

In 1868 there was a major earthquake in Hawaii that killed 77 people. In 1975 an earthquake in Hawaii killed 2 people.
Hat Tip Mr. Goodwrench

UPDATE: Obama lied. The language on page 432 of the Senate Bill applies to exactly one state: Louisiana.
ABC reported

On page 432 of the Reid bill, there is a section increasing federal Medicaid subsidies for “certain states recovering from a major disaster.”

The section spends two pages defining which “states” would qualify, saying, among other things, that it would be states that “during the preceding 7 fiscal years” have been declared a “major disaster area.”

I am told the section applies to exactly one state: Louisiana, the home of moderate Democrat Mary Landrieu, who has been playing hard to get on the health care bill.

In other words, the bill spends two pages describing would could be written with a single world: Louisiana. (This may also help explain why the bill is long.)

The bill did not cover the hurricane damage in Texas or Mississippi. The senate bill will not cover any state that has been “affected by a natural catastrophe” despite what Obama said.

UPDATE: Now you can contribute to the Hawaii earthquake fund.

  • Kurt Brouwer

    As a Hawai’i resident, I can say that there has been a fairly recent quake, which hit Hawai’i in October 2006. Epicenter was about 12 miles off the Big Island.

    There were actually two near-simultaneous quakes of roughly about 6 on the Richter Scale. It made quite a mess at my house and did some damage to bridges and highways, but not a horrendous amount.

    Maybe he was thinking about the huge quake in Chile and the false tsunami alarm we got in Hawai’i.

  • Slappy

    Hawaii has experienced recent mild earthquakes, as referenced by others in this thread. This includes one on March 8 in which an earthquake with a magnitude of 4.5 hit Hawaii:


    Nonetheless, I don’t think any of the recent earthquakes on that list could be considered a “natural catastrophe” that “created a special health care emergency” so why would they receive any federal money? What an idiotic example for him to use. After all, how can you compare the problems caused by any recent Hawaiian earthquakes with those caused by Katrina? It looks to me like Obama was grasping for a response after being called out for ridiculously supporting the special deal for Louisiana, which, as we all know, was included in the Senate’s version of the health care bill in order to get Mary Landrieu’s vote.

  • brooklyn

    After viewing this interview, it is now confirmed – Mr. Obama just isn’t as brilliant as hyped. Just like the revelation the Clintons were unethical, corrupt, incompetents, we are stuck with another lackluster Democrat making a mess of everything.

    It is a big joke on the USA.

    After all the years of the ugly slander against the Republicans in Print, TV, Film, Music, etc., they reveal again they really have no clue.

    Obama was selected because he was unknown, and fit an image they desired.

    He has proven to be a disaster.

    DNC Titanic sinking us all.

    One can only hope the foolish Democrats in the House are not foolish enough to go through with this monstrous socialized effort.

  • AuntieMadder

    I was wrong when I said in a posted comment earlier today that Obamao and Fox News are now BFF. Baier didn’t give Obamao the MSNBC treatment as I was sure he would. So, my prediction that this would be only the first of many Fox interviews with Obamao was surely wrong, too. Axelrod is probably putting together the smear campaign against Fox News as we speak.

  • What about Hurricane Ismarelda, that devasted Lincoln, NE?

  • logic101

    I think our special needs president meant to say that earthquakes in Hawaii would decrease by 3000%.

  • This just off the wire: Localized earth quake destroys birth records from 1958 through 1968 in Hawaii. Reporters on the ground say the are amazed that only these records were destroyed as all records were in the same place. Obama declares an emergency and sends FEMA, updates at eleven.

    Omg, Lisa, you’re probably right. And being a “citizen of the world,” as well as a complete idiot, it probably doesn’t even cross his mind that Haiti isn’t one of the United States and/or that the taxes paid by US taxpayers aren’t global taxes collected to be used globally.

    If Lisa’s right, Obamao gave more away with that mistake than the slip that he’s no genius. He’s a citizen of the NWO.

  • Richard Romano

    This guy is just a disaster — that interview was so painful to watch.

    What’s truly unnerving is how many people still think this guy’s a genius — when he’s challenged and pressed, he’s reduced to another thin-skinned politician.

    Nice change and hope.

  • Lily

    He just MAKES STUFF UP.

    Bret just asked about procedure. But I wanted him to answer on substance. Obama sells his bill as if it is the ONLY SOLUTION to the problems with the current system. Bret did not challenge him on this. There are better ways to shore up the problems without a government takeover.

    About 85% of people are reasonably happy with their health care. And we have some of the highest cancer survial rates in the world. And we don’t have long wait times for treatment.

    We are reasonably afraid that overall costs will increase while care will decline. To dismiss these concerns as unreasonable fear is wrong.

  • auntie em

    I know what he was talking about. He just broke tradition and didn’t mention that he got a letter from a resident in HI just the other day, talking about the earthquake there, and how because of the earthquake, she felt a tingle up her leg.

    I don’t know if it is legit or not, but it was signed Christy Matthews.

    Special needs president is right. Why does he think that talking like a drunk, washed up comedian in a local bar at these staged town hall meetings makes him look like a leader??

    Seriously, I think what we are seeing is a man with a serious drinking problem.

  • Other than the fact that he was right, and President Bush declared it a ‘major disaster’ in October 2006, you are right, Mr. Hoft.

    Have you all heard of ‘the google’? It would help to make it look like you all are not just mindless lemmings. Key word being look, you are all mindless lemmings.

  • Slappy

    brooklyn, I think you hit the nail right on the head with your comments in #29.

    The irony is that the 52% that voted for this guy voted for supposed “change” and instead they (and the rest of us) got a POTUS who is an arrogant, immature, inexperienced jerk with no leadership ability and no previous experience of value, and who, on a daily basis, behaves much like the most corrupt politicians this country has ever seen. The guy’s law education is also lacking, as evidenced by his inability to understand Supreme Court decisions or to see the potential legal problems he and Pelosi are going to cause the country if they try to push through a health care bill that may be unconstitutional. You’d think that he would at least try to explain to the country why he thinks the entire bill and the “Slaughter Rule” are constitutional considering many Americans are concerned about these aspects of the bill and process, among many others.

    The man is a joke and really would be better suited as a backbencher in the Illinois state legislature, not POTUS. But many of our fellow Americans fell not only for the line of crap he was giving them during the 2008 campaign, but also wanted to be able to say that they voted for the first minority POTUS. I’m sad to say that this horrible decision by the 52% crowd is likely to cause this country long-lasting or even permanent damage.

  • How’s that for justifying the unjustifiable. Hurricane Katrina caused special health care, maybe for the homes, they were pretty sick after it went through.

    Remember all the doom and gloom predictions about all the toxic chemicals in the water?

    That turned out to be a wild exaggeration just like all the rapes in the Superdome, and on and on.

    I am so sick of being lied to for political gain….I can’t wait for November. It will be a good warm up for November of 2011, I just pray that the Republicans will give us a strong Conservative candidate.

    You know like McCain ;-).

  • Scott Jerome

    When I heard him say this, I thought he was referring to the Chileian tsunami that was projected to hit Hawaii. But that feared tsunami wave never hit Hawaii. It never happened.

    There was an earthquake in Chile, not Hawaii.

    Obama’s Capoeira (a poem)
    Peter Olsson
    He struts to the lecturn, lifts his chin skyward, points.

    The sparkling grin a politician’s wordless preamble.

    A nimble new dance of empathy and political power.

    Baritone voice claims cadence in America’s heartbeat.

    Haunting intonations of Martin, Franklin, and John.

    His smile foisting nobility upon scared collective souls.

    Audacity and Hope find morphing transparent forms,

    Acorns and green science are smarmy political disguises.

    The emperor and his czars wear dazzling new straw suits.

    His highness a genius at strawman crafting and creating,

    Seeming so in love with his endlessly ever-exposed TV image.

    Oh so defensive when his judgment is seriously questioned.

    Obama would best be mindful of an Eden’s shadow side,

    Symbolized in thirty inflated or deflated pieces of silver.

    The inevitable need and danger, for a Jesus to find a Judas.

    So sad, the anointed one confuses cogent critics with enemies,

    And forgets the important ritual of washing his disciples feet.

    Other than the fact that he was right, and President Bush declared it a ‘major disaster’ in October 2006, you are right, Mr. Hoft.

    Have you all heard of ‘the google’? It would help to make it look like you all are not just mindless lemmings. Key word being look, you are all mindless lemmings.

    So this earthquake in Hawaii in 2006 was a “major disaster” that “created a special health care emergency” that still exists 3-1/2 years later to the degree that it will receive money from the health care bill that’s currently being debated, after (if) it’s passed? And how much will other states like Hawaii receive compared to Mary Landrieu’s state of Louisiana anyway? Talk about intellectually dishonest.

    Obama at least could have mentioned those Kansas tornadoes that he said killed 10,000 people (actually 12 people) in 2007.


    I think everyone here can determine who’s the “mindless lemming” based on the fact that you are defending Obama’s transparent comment meant to justify the payoff to Landrieu’s state, which “ironically” didn’t exist in the Senate’s health care bill until they needed Landrieu’s support to break the GOP’s filibuster attempt in the Senate. This is the exact type of political payoff that Mr. Hope and Change claimed he was going to put a stop to, but instead he resorts to disingenuous excuses and explanations.

  • BHG

    Before Obamaniacs indulge in their natural habit of ad hominem attacks, let’s ask ourselves you read the entire Wiki reference.
    I couldn’t find any reports of Hawaii’s earthquake resulting any deaths or damage to hospitals.
    Excusing the Louisiana Purchase because of Katrina was Landrieu’s lame excuse to begin with, only offered after she accepted the bribe during her absurd, tearful meltdown on the floor of the Senate!
    It was not a smart move for Obama to have reminded us. In fact, it strikes me that the person y’all want to call stupid is Obama. Lemmings? You’re projecting – Congressman who vote yes are the ones who’ll be following Obama off the cliff.

    You people don’t even rise to the level of morons.

    Rise to the level of morons, huh? Anyone who thinks that that Obama should have cited an earthquake 3-1/2 years ago that resulted in minor damage and no apparent loss of life while discussing Katrina is the real moron. He’s trying to (badly) justify to a skeptical public why Louisiana received a payoff so that Landrieu would vote for the health care bill. Think of all the money that has already been sent to Louisiana to rebuild and help people since Katrina occurred 4-1/2 years ago and will continue to be sent through already approved funding. But we have to continue to send hundreds of millions more as part of an already bloated health care bill? I guess it was just a coincidence that these monies were not allocated to Louisiana in the health care bill until Obama & Co. needed Landrieu’s vote.

  • He needed his teleprompter, clearly.

  • frofreak

    Guys, I grew up on the Big Island of Hawaii, and let me tell ya, there are dozens of earthquakes everyday. So technically, he’s right! Problem is, they are so small you only actually feel one every few years, and the ones that actually cause you to flee your house happen only once every 10 years or so. Even then, most structures on the big island are made of wood and are quite resilient to earthquakes. Which leads to minimal damage. Certainly not to the point where we need a Fed. Gov bailout.

    If we was smart, he would have stuck to a more realistic but equally relevent example: Hurricanes. Historically, they have caused billions of dollars more than any earthquake there. And required aid from the feds. Even then, the last major hit was in 1992.

    This was just a bizarre choice of example. I think he was just trying to underline his “hawaiian” street cred, or something. Maybe overcompensation for what he knows that we don’t…about his BC. Lol.

    Exactly. Obama is trying to cover up for this fact and is doing it poorly. Oh, Obama & Co. may have rewritten the bill so that other states can get funding for any “major disaster” that “create(s) a special health care emergency”. This way, it doesn’t look like a payoff and they can keep it in the bill, but we all know the whole reason it was originally added to the bill.

    So, yes, I pray about this. A lot.

  • Slappy

    Man, are you exhausting, Jake. Talk about a split personality.

    First of all, lose your assumptions, insults, and Bush bashing that was tedious while he was in office and is especially meaningless in the year 2010. It also didn’t exactly ingratiate yourself to many of us here to start out by calling us racist. That tactic is not only old but completely false considering that you don’t even know how many of us are minorities and/or have significant others that are minorities.

    Second, regarding your comments about “pray(ing) for our world and our president,” it would be nice if said president listened to the American people, didn’t govern against our will, and actually governed like he implied he would during the 2008 campaign (i.e., as a moderate). He’s done none of that and has instead insulted the intelligence of many voters, especially Republicans and Independents, with his far Left policies and his “politics as usual” garbage (i.e., backroom deals, payoffs, etc.). He has only himself to blame for this approach, though if he had dropped the ego and arrogance for a second several years ago, he might have known that he wasn’t up to the challenge of serving as POTUS before he even decided to run. Too many people that surround the guy haven’t been honest and told him that he simply doesn’t have the skill set or experience to serve as POTUS (Chippy’s comments in post #95 described the current POTUS perfectly). It was obvious to me and many others during the 2008 campaign that this was true, while others that voted for him are starting to see this for themselves now.

    Overall, many of us truly believe that “giving him a chance” will devastate the country for generations. It will certainly weaken this country and turn it into one that we will no longer recognize. Millions of us don’t want to live in a European-like state and economy that is primarily focused on the collective and not individual freedom and liberty, which has made this the greatest country in the history of mankind. If we go down this path toward some version of socialism that Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are pushing us, the country that has been the envy of the world will cease to exist. That’s a heck of a lot to give up in order to “give Obama a chance.”

    Maybe the President was having a flashback to 1975.

  • Verily, there were Hawaian earthquakes during the Obama interview. Hawaii has had 37 quakes in the last 17 days. The largest was 4.5 which is a barely felt by folks familiar with quakes.

  • AJ

    Jake, I couldn’t care less if the president was purple with pink polka dots and for you to call people racists with no basis in fact is ludricrous.

    Whether or not Bush said that he would get to the Katrina disaster in NO until after his vacation, I happen to doubt very much. The mess in Katrina happened because they did not ask for federal aid and the federal government, by law, cannot go in until asked by the state. In Florida we also had Katrina in addition to other hurricanes and we were ready because our Governor asked the federal govt. for assistance. The year before we had four hurricanes hit Florida and during one of them we actually had Pres. Bush handing out water to people that had gone topick up water that was available. It came out in the news and the people in their car were surprised to see the President handing out water.

    So, I would suggest that you educate yourself and before calling others “morons” look in the mirror.

    Leftists are all over the Internet blasting conservatives for supposedly being wrong about questioning this “earthquake in Hawaii” remark by Obama because of the 2006 earthquake towards which some of the “Louisiana Purchase” money will supposedly be allocated. Well, by doing this they only highlight the stupidity of the Democrats including a provision in the health care bill in which natural disasters going back up to 7 years will receive money. Also, just to be clear, the death toll from the 2006 earthquake in Hawaii was zero, so to mention it in the same breath as Katrina is asinine.

    As I and others mentioned earlier in this thread, this provision was only added after the uproar over the original payoff to Mary Landrieu. Thus, this attempt to make it appear like it wasn’t a payoff is transparent. So, in a 2010 health care bill we’re going to cover the cost of injuries and and other health issues from a relatively minor earthquake (in terms of human injuries) four years prior? What health care costs related to that earthquake still need to be covered anyway? How much will really find its way from Louisiana to Hawaii for this purpose anyway? Nonetheless, is that supposed to make us all feel better about the $1 trillion in new spending in this bill? Unbelievable.

    The Leftists are too blinded by their need to attack conservatives with their “conservatives are stupid” insults that they’re inadvertently highlighting another ridiculous detail of the health care bill. See, Leftists, the reason many are incredulous about the inclusion of the 2006 earthquake in the health care bill is: (1) it wasn’t a memorable or devastating incident (which is why it wasn’t remembered by most, unlike a significant natural disaster like Hurricane Katrina); (2) it has no business being in this health care bill; and (3) we can see through the true motivation of why Obama mentioned it (i.e., obscure the true intent of the “Louisiana Purchase”). The federal government already finances assistance for natural disasters so including extra funding in the 2010 health care bill primarily for Louisiana in order to convince Mary Landrieu to support the bill is ludicrous and highlights the corrupt behavior of the congressional Democrats.

  • Kevin

    Don’t look now the Obama bootlickers are saying he wasn’t lying about earthquake in Hawaii.
    Problem is Wikipedia has great article on 2006 earthquake in Hawaii in which their were no fatalities.

    Last but not least the lapdogs at Soros-funded Media Matters:

  • helloworld

    In 2006 President Bush “declared a major disaster exists in the State of Hawaii and ordered Federal aid to supplement State and local recovery efforts in the area struck by an earthquake that occurred on October 15, 2006, and related aftershocks.”

    Source: http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/releases/2006/10/20061017-6.html

    Note the declaration of a “major disaster.”

    Now, reading over the relevant section of page 432 I couldn’t tell you whether or not it actually applies to Hawaii or not. If it doesn’t, then Obama made an inaccurate statement – either knowingly, in which case yes, he lied; or unknowingly, in which case he was mistaken.

    So far I haven’t seen any proof that the statement he made is inaccurate.

    Point of fact: there was an earthquake in Hawaii in 2006.
    Point of fact: President Bush declared it a “major disaster.”

    It’s senseless to argue those points – they are facts. Instead, try to make the case that page 432 of the Reid bill doesn’t apply to the Hawaii quake. If it doesn’t, you have a valid criticism. If it does, then I would expect a correction to any false claims you’ve made (i.e., that Obama lied about it). Until you can prove that Obama lied, it’s an unbacked statement and should hold no weight with anyone.

    I actually think this is all beside the point though; this *does* seem to be an attempt to buy support, and that’s a legitimate criticism. But then again, that’s just how politics works in this country. All politicians are guilty of it at some point or another. The ugly truth is you can’t succeed in politics if you don’t play the game.

  • Andreas K.

    You know, the more I hear this guy talk, the more I think he’s on drugs or drunk.

    As for the earth quake, well Bush wasn’t really the smartest cookie in the box either, but jeez, compared to Obama he comes across as a bloody Einstein by now.

    Such little tremors, you know how they’re handled in Japan? Seen it myself. Suddenly it rumbles. People stop, wait, watch, listen… then nothing more, life goes on. The media reports how strong it was and if there was any damage, etc, but that’s it. Nobody calls out a national emergency over a little rumble.

  • Redwine

    I will bet absolutely that, eventually, we will find out the truth about this fraud imposed on the American people by those who desperately hate this country and want to see it die, like a pyromaniac setting a forest fire just to watch it burn.

    And the scenario will be very close to this:
    It’s pretty obvious by now that Barry Hussein is a shell who was schooled in a single-minded, subversive ideology. His mixed-race and connections via his family and family friends – and his rich Pakistani roommate at Occidental – made him very attractive. These connections placed him in the hands of a small group of mainly Chicago-based activist subversives (Bill Ayers, Rashid Khalidi,among others). His rampant narcissism attracted them. They took him from Occidental, where he spent most of his time as a stoner and used bribes and false documentation to “enroll” him at Columbia U. He never studied or got a degree. His time spent all of his time “in training”.

    With the help of other well-heeled radicals – some of it from Saudis who already made major inroads into influencing leftist academia with huge endowments to Harvard, they seized an opportunity for great “dawa” by promoting a closet Muslim with radical credentials. Hussein was barely able to make a class at Harvard, but continued his training. His election to president of the Harvard Law Review was a fraud. The previous president objected to the promotion of Hussein, but was very quickly shut up. (His objection was posted very briefly on some blogs during the primaries, but was whisked away down the rabbit hole.)

    In the meantime, Soros took notice of this easily-manipulated shell and had him move back into Chicago political circles. He was never a “professor”, but played at being an “instructor”, which was basically a radical agitator as “community organizer”, but could be used on his resume to prove that he was trustworthy and centrist.

    Enter “Adolf” Axelrod and Rambo the Vicious Ballerina, and Hussein was ready to play big-time politics. The first book – really a hagiography – was prepared by Bill Ayers for his senate race, which was duly stolen for Hussein. Then came the second hagiography, again penned by Ayers, for the mighty splash for the presidency. And the rest, we know.

    Barry Hussein knows virtually nothing, no history, no economics, not every basic math, and he’s one of the worst speakers of all time, but the bought state-controlled media will never say anything. He has protectors and handlers everywhere. But the mask is slipping and the American people are noticing. We live in very dangerous times.

    2008 75 declared
    2007 63 declared

Surely he couldn’t get confused about his ‘home state’ – I know I’ve never gotten confused about my home state of Texas. He is just *so* progressive that he has already locked into his mind the 7 new states he intends in his hidden agenda to add before he ends his fourth or fifth term: Haiti, Kenya, North Korea, Cuba, and a few others where he expects to find several million more non-productive welfare state ‘constituents’ for the Democrat party.

    Accepted it at face value, but there’s no “there” there of anything in his rhetoric, his performance, his grasp of commonalities.

    So empty that after over a year of observation, one has to go back and say “WHAT did he DO in university? ‘Cause WE ain’t SEEING, or HEARING it.”

    And frankly, if he hung with a Pakistani, he was in the “circuit” – too many swish through educationally by cheat coaching, exam copying, transcript padding and other dodges. It’s so bad, it’s literally a major service sector in Pakistan and India. (warning: especially in medical exams)

  • Obama’s Brown Shirts are out in force, calling us “lemmings” and less than “morons.”

    And why? Because we failed to understand that Barry was talking about the “huge” earthquake (6.7 = 1,000X less powerful than the recent one in Chile) in Hawaii in 2006. We are so stupid because we didn’t know about that one.

    But wait…didn’t they let on that they had to go to Google to find it? And they happened to find one in 2006, that was even called “a disaster,” despite the fact that no deaths were reported.

    But nowhere in his point does Barry tell us which quake he is talking about. So, while it could be the 2006 quake, we have no way of knowing for sure. The Libs are just making assumptions.

    Judging from the responses here and among my co-workers, most people don’t know what earthquake Barry was talking about. It’s just not in the public consciousness. The fact that the liberals had to look it up says that they didn’t know what he was talking about, either (I suspect that’s true regardless of Ideology). But Liberals have to appear informed and superior, so they condemn Conservatives for being just like everyone else…normal.

    The Bush declaration did not cover Kalawao County on Molokai, therefore, the declaration did not cover every county in the state, which means that the earthquake in Hawaii would not be covered under the Senate bill:

    “(2) In this subsection, the term ‘disaster-recovery FMAP adjustment State’ means a State that is one of the 50 States or the District of Columbia, for which, at any time during the preceding 7 fiscal years, the President has declared a major disaster under section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act and determined as a result of such disaster that every county or parish in the State warrant individual and public assistance or public assistance from the Federal Government under such Act and for which–”

    “…that provision, which I think should remain in, said that if a state has been affected by a natural catastrophe, that has created a special health care emergency in that state, they should get help…. It also affects Hawaii, which went through an earthquake.”

    So was Bammy claiming that the 2006 earthquake in Hawaii created a “natural health care emergency”?

    Back in the mid 80’s I slept through an earthquake in Manhattan. Would that qualify too?

    I think he looks less stupid if he just pretends he meant Haiti, and that he thought it was the 57th state.

    Oh yeah buck, one other thing while I’m on the line here with a world class Obama fluffer, can you direct me to where I can get one of those 3000% insurance premium reductions Bammy promised?

    It also affects Hawaii, which went through an earthquake. ~ BHO

    exactly where did Obama specifically mention
    Bush or the 2006 Earthquake?? he didn’t..

    btw, this is 2010, and there’s been many more
    recent Earthquakes, including in Hawaii, hello??

    it’s also evidently, you don’t know what an “echo chamber” is, because i know you didn’t read all the posts or you’d have been informed vs jumping on the idiotic ‘label them all in one fell swoop’ wagon, that’ll do the trick..

    yep right, that’s the ticket..

    that and this from your genius with Ummah on the brain..

    5.3 magnitude earthquake rocks Hawaii hours before expected hurricane

    [The Hawaii National Guard has been activated under the command of Governor Linda Lingle, who signed an emergency disaster proclamation ahead of the storm. Mayor Harry Kim also declared a state of emergency on Monday.]

    Hurricane Flossie Sideswipes Hawaii’s Big Island

    neither mentions the 2006 hurricane, go figure..

    of course Earthquakes will be covered
    in the US, in Hawaii or wherever, duh!!

    The $100 Million Health Care Vote?

    [On page 432 of the Reid bill, there is a section increasing federal Medicaid subsidies for “certain states recovering from a major disaster.”

    The section spends two pages defining which “states” would qualify, saying, among other things, that it would be states that “during the preceding 7 fiscal years” have been declared a “major disaster area.”

    I am told the section applies to exactly one state: Louisiana, the home of moderate Democrat Mary Landrieu, who has been playing hard to get on the health care bill.

    In other words, the bill spends two pages describing would could be written with a single world: Louisiana. (This may also help explain why the bill is long.)

    Senator Harry Reid, who drafted the bill, CANNOT PASS IT

    oh btw..

    are they still “waiting to be covered”
    for the 2006 Earthquake in Hawaii??

    “you can lead a liberal to knowledge,
    but you can’t make a liberal think!!”

    poor Hawaii, if LANDRIEU doesn’t sign it, they
    won’t get coverage for the 2006 Earthquake!!

    still ROTFLMBO @ how well Obama communicates
    with liberal “thinkers”.. bwahahahahahahahahah!!

    btw, i thought it was $300 million??

    wonder what happened with that??

    guess Hawaii won’t be getting much coverage after all these years..

    oh wait, 30 + million for Obama 2 week vaca’s, plus Pelosi’s entourage, that’ll more than make up for it, not to mention US footing the bill either way..

    Hurricane Daniel (2006)

    Initial predictions suggested that the cyclone would pass through the Hawaiian Islands as a tropical storm; however, Daniel’s remnants dissipated southeast of Hawaii. The storm brought light to moderate precipitation to the islands of Hawaii and Maui, causing minor flooding, although no major damage or fatalities were reported.

    he sure knOws how to pick em huh?? 😀

    2006 Hawaii earthquake

    [The earthquake caused property damage, injuries, landslides, power outages, and airport delays and closures.[4] Governor Linda Lingle issued a disaster declaration for the entire state.


    The most severe damage caused by the earthquake was focused on the north and western sides of the island of Hawaii. Damage was also quite heavy on the eastern side of Maui, and minor damage spread all the way out to western Oahu, 170 miles (270 km) away from the earthquake’s epicenter. On the Big Island, many houses had large cracks and broken windows, and at least 61 buildings were destroyed and red-tagged by officials. Almost all houses in west Hawaii reported extensive internal damage but most avoided significant structural damage, the reason being that most of the buildings in the area around the epicenter of the earthquake have been built in the last few decades and are well constructed. Even so, over $200 million in damage occurred.[8]

    The largest and most luxurious hotels on the Island of Hawaii also happened to be clustered within ten miles (16 km) of the earthquake’s epicenter along the Kohala coast. The famous Mauna Kea Beach Hotel had its entire south end collapse, and the hotel’s top floor was considered “destroyed.” The hotel closed December 1 after a month-long inspection revealed that the building was unsafe and in danger of collapse. After a $150 million renovation, the hotel reopened in December, 2008.[9] [10] The Hapuna Prince Hotel was temporarily evacuated after the earthquake due to structural damage, broken glass and flooding caused by broken waterpipes.]

    still don’t see what it has to do with “Something
    that was called a special deal was for Louisiana.”

    Yeah, it would have taken a few minutes to verify if there were any big earth quakes in Hawaii. And what’s that? There was, in 06 that was in fact a catastrophe. Big surprise there. You dumb right-wing imbeciles are lying again.

    you obviously still don’t get it..

    the 2006 earthquake (or any of the
    many others) is totally irrelevant..

    it has absolutely zero to do with
    the special deal for Louisiana..
