Sandy victims left out in the cold during arctic blast. “Mary Lou Foley tries to stay warm in her Hurricane Sandy ravaged house in Breezy Point. She has been staying here for the past month without heat, sleeping on a comforter on the floor but she has remained optimistic and says she is ‘happy.’” Pols fiddle while Rome burns – same as it ever was.

Guess these folks are not as important as the folks in New Orleans….Hmmm I suppose this is Bush’s fault too? If these folks were in a different ethnic group there would be riots in the streets, nothing like stealing a plasma TV to take away the pain of having your house destroyed..but yet here these people are, trying to make the best of it, while waiting for Lord and Master Obama, and his disciple Governor Cuomo to help (which will never come). I wonder how Chicago Jesus would do in the freezing cold without running water? It would be racist you can be sure of that…

“Guess these folks are not as important”

I think the phrase you want is “politically exploitable.”

Obama hates white people. Isn’t that what they said about Bush and New Orleans?

No, they said Bush hates black people.
Remember a white man hating black people by making sure they have emergency housing, money, food, water, and reconstruction funding, is much worse than a black man hating white people by making sure that they have nothing.
It makes me wonder why there are no FEMA trailers in NY and NJ. Many homes in the affected area are destroyed, condemned, unlivable, and people are living in tents in the winter! In NOLA, people were living in FEMA trailers, given food and debit cards, and it was summertime, so freezing to death wasn’t a concern.
Maybe Obama is concerned about the FEMA trailers getting damaged by the heavy snows in a Northeast winter, so he thinks tents are a better idea.
If you can’t tell, I’m completely pissed off about this!

Under “Dear Leader’s” union dominated administration, by the time any relief funds make it through all the different departments involved, the administrative costs will have soaked up any funding.
See what happens when you hope a con man won’t rip you off.

Odd how the MSM has overlooked this misery. If Bush were still in the White House this story would be screaming front page news on every media outlet.
Obama, as ususal, gets a pass.

I wonder if the Lame Stream Media would be paying more attention if the good folks in New York were looting and rioting in the streets? Where are the FEMA trailers and free debit cards? The people in New York don’t deserve what those in New Orleans got for some reason? Why aren’t the media idol worshipers asking about it?

New York has always been a deep blue state but I wonder if the Obummer hasn’t shit in the Democraps wheaties this time. I know I wouldn’t vote for another liberal Dem if I had been treated as shabbily by the gooberment as the Sandy victims.

But that’s because you have a reasonably functioning brain, and can do a little cause and effect reasoning. The Blie staters have a gene missing to do that. They’ll vote them in again as soon as the opportunity arises.

The contrast between Sandy and Katrina, in terms of how the media has covered the relief effort, is shocking. We’ve gone from “Bush hates black people” to silence. Obama has a liberal media force field around him so strong and reliable that he can get away anything, including horrible events like Benghazi, and feel totally secure. Sandy has been a cakewalk for him and all liberals. It’s so bad that if you were to start a conversation with a run-of-the-mill liberal about FEMA, they’d say, “but wait, FEMA was Bush’s deal… he started that.”

And the Sandy victims weren’t killing each other and shooting at any relief workers who came to help. unlike the roving gangs post Katrina in New Orleans. Oh, and Sandy victims still had most of their roads passable pretty quickly. New Orleans had to drain for a couple of weeks. and the National Guard, though standing ready, were not allowed to intervene.

Where’s the media, the out crying, Springstein needs to hold another concert fund raiser. I thought der leader and his RINO troll had corrected all of the issues and fixed all of the people’s problems.

Now we hear that all is not as presented. So the next election, just remember that a great deal of you all in NY, NJ got an empty Cracker Jack box.

The media god used these people like a condom just before the election, and then treated them like a condom when he no longer needed them. But, are they going to be any smarter next time some phony shill promises them free stuff ? I doubt it!
