I have to admit that I am a bit confused about the concept of a voluntary evacuation order. If it is a voluntary evacuation, isn't that merely a suggestion? How is this 'order' worded? "Here's an order to leave, if you want to".

You Big Liberal Democrat are just the kind of idiot it would take to vote Obama in another 4 years.

Obama stopped his campaign while Romney bought $5,000 of goods and staged a rally. He than handed out the goods to his supporters and they in return gave them back to him so it looked liked he was helping the hurricane victims. How sick is that!

Notice what you said. "Romney bought $5,000 of goods " That would be out of HIS pocket. Obama will pay out tax dollars and have the Fed print up some more money. And just how do you know that he bought this and "staged a rally"?

Obama stopped his campaign? He has been campaigning for reelection since November 2008. His little jaunt into AC yesterday was just added stop on his campaign trail. He flew up on Air Force One, boarded Marine One, flew into AC and shook a few hands. The only reason he didn't go to NYC instead was because Bloomberg told him not to. And, Marine One was the 'copter he flew in from the White House to Andrews AFB to get on Air Force One. The copter then had to fly up here to meet him.
