I know you don't live there Einstien. Need me to read that to you?

Oh no. More comments from the trailer park.

With attitudes like yours, it's no wonder businesses are leaving Norwalk in droves. The world needs a few less of you. And by the way, I can OWN the trailer park, and you my man, will always be a renter.

"I can OWN the trailer park." That's good stuff. I'm laughing too hard to comment further. Cornelius Vanderbilt you're not.

What is he going to do other than inconvenience the clean up crew? The local officials, the EPA, the railroad - all have it covered and don't have time for a photo op. Let them keep working to get these families home.

Ehovemom: So let me understand this, if this was your great Obama, you would be the first one in line ready to kiss his feet. But since it is our Gov and he isn't your messiah than oh my what a piece of crap. His presence is not going to stop any clean up effort. In fact, it will probably make the ones working here feel a little better seeing the Gov on Thanksgiving here in support rather than stuffing his face and not caring. So get off your soap box, put the dark meat back in your mouth and enjoy your day. And it is Thanksgiving, try being grateful for once instead of being so negative. and how is your Obamacare going for you? I hope you are getting what you voted for.

If Obama was coming to town, Ehovemom would be front and center for the picture opportunity and have nothing but great things to say about him.

Now The Rest of...

Ehovemon, get perspective beyond your far left rants. The governor's security detail is a few state troopers, not the gaggle of your messiah who prances around the country on Air Force One in his highly partisan manner. You would be the first one of your kind to complain if he didn't come to Willard. Obzo would be there if it was golf season and anyone to squeeze political funding from.

Yeah shame on Kasich. He is traveling to Willard on Thanksgiving day to make sure everything is ok and that they do not need assistance. Shame on him, what a bad man (insert sarcasm).

Ehovemom

I would like to apologize. I did not realize the importance of this visit.

It's very important. He needs to make sure that CSX's and the chemical companies' a$$es are covered. The EPA will then assure everyone that there's no danger.
