    Looks like God doesn't want the Repubs to meet. Must not want Romney/Ryan (Rolls Royce or Richie Rich) in office. Or maybe it's a liberal/Marxist conspiracy and they teamed up with a James Bond villain to cause a hurricane.

    You mean his priorities aren't with the RNC, but instead with the people? Put that on the calendar!

    Rick Scott should be embarrassed that he refused stimulas funds that would have built our high speed rail. Tampa would have been much better prepared to evacuate or reroute air traffic fot the RNC.

    He's canceling his activities? Doesn't he have more voters to purge from the rolls?

    Is he going to ask for the federal government for a "hand -out if this storm does a lot of damage? That's a no-no,I thought! Standard Republican answer when you try to get their real position on anything is"well we should leave that matter to the states"! So Mr Scott you need help?

    See – this is clearly "God's Will" as surely the Republicons would be claiming if this were the Dems Convention!

    The Church and actually Bishops and Nuns have already sent letters indicating their Horror with the Ryan Budget and the Republicon Platform which further rewards Only the Wealthy while hurting most the Poor and Needy.

    Now God has sent that Message too – Thank Goodness..!!!
