Yahoo ^ | 10/31/2012 | Julie Pace

As Obama and Christie flew over Point Pleasant Beach, sand and water could be seen covering several blocks of the community. But the president got a reminder of next week's election: someone had written "ROMNEY" in large letters in the sand at the north end of the beach.

He took a lot of cra* period. The governor didn't know what the hell they were doing in the Chocolate state....

4000 people died.....people that were warned to get out....stupid people on the Dem dole...and I'm sure they're STILL on thew Dem take.

Are these vacation houses? Or are these houses year round residences?

Whenever there is a hurricane or flood along a river and houses are washed away, I think of the Bible and the lessons about building houses near water. I always wanted to have a house near water but figured I would need to be very rich because the house would need to be expendable.

Living near water provided a lot of opportunities....mills, transportation, water to drink...water for crops....

Don't ever be down on living near water. Just build on the hilltop.

I will NEVER understand the stilt cr**...and why it is even allowed.

Next statement from Axlerod will be “Just like those Romneyites to exploit this tragedy for political purposes! I’m SHOCKED, I tell you!”. Because, of course, that’s NOT what the Big O is doing...

Did Hueesin find a mysterious pile of pebbles and use them to pensively craft a memorial cross for the cmaeras?

East Texas, near where the Big Sandy and Sabine rivers collide, I have family who live in a little “village,” it isn’t big enough to be a town. Each structure there is built on 15’-20’ tall stilts - all the houses and even the convenience store and pool hall!

Now THAT is good planning!

At least one NJ resident gets it, even if the so-called GOP governor doesn't.

My grandmother lived in South Florida, so I grew up visiting her often. Her house was away from the water’s edge and was built with concrete block. It has withstood a lot of hurricanes. Of all the places hubby and I have lived, Virginia Beach was my favorite. We lived on high ground though that didn’t do a lot of good when the roads were flooded. Lol. Thankfully, the roads did not stay flooded for even a day.

Sandy beaches should be left as first found....sandy beaches.

Building homes on them, putting in all the utilities including natural gas....what would you expect in a furious storm?

Home owners across the nation pays increases in insurance for these (in many cases) second homes.

Prayers go out to all in the path of the storm. My advice use the beaches as the good Lord intended.

I lived in Williamsburg Va for a year. Every afternoon, there was a torrential rain that lasted for 15 minutes. Seemed God didn’t want to waste a lot of TIME on keeping things green....What a Plan!!

For playing paddle ball and surfing?

"Are these vacation houses? Or are these houses year round residences?"

They are both. Mile for mile, NJ probably has more continuous shore towns along its coast than probably any other state, most of them along the 'barrier islands' that border all along its coastline.

I live in NJ, and Sunday helped my in-laws move up furniture from 1st to 2nd flr from their shore house on a lagoon in Beach Haven West, before Sandy struck later the next day. Good thing we did, the entire area ultimately went under water when Sandy struck.

Glad y’all got everything of value upstairs. I pray for all the people who have lost so much in this storm. I am reminded of the folks in another of our home towns and how they reacted after the tornado that destroyed so much of Tuscaloosa last year. The people who lost houses or stuff were just so happy to be alive. It is very humbling when you see destruction of such magnitude.

Thanks. I live clear across the other side of the state (by Philadelphia), but just an hour’s drive to the shore / Atlantic City.

Yes, I’m sure you’re right - no photos. There is, however, a nauseating photo of Bambi giving Sucker Christie a condescending pat on the back.

Christie is such a fool. It’s hard for me to believe that he was dumb enough to let himself be used in this way. Even Bloomberg said no when Bambi called and invited himself to NYC.

There is a children’s church song been around a long time about the foolish man who built his house upon the sand and the rains came down and the floods came up and the house on the sand went smash. The wise man built his house upon the rock.... and the house on the rock stood fast.

Yes, and it has been stuck in my head all day. :-)

And “Don’t build your house on the sandy land. Don’t build it too near the shore . . .” is also running through my head. Not that these songs offer any comfort to those whose lives have been uprooted. And that is where God comes in.

Certainly when I learned the song as a child I didn’t know or understand that God was speaking metaphorically. After Ike hit Galveston and Sandy hit the East coast I sometimes think he also meant it literally.

It is true either way. Now I have all kinds of songs running through my head with words such as Rock and Foundation in them. :)

i agree it is humbling. most folks who died in this hurricane were unlucky or made poor decisions. they should be alive. they had plenty of warning to get safe. a tornada hits with little or no warning and that, i believe, makes folks more gratiful to be alive afterwards. plus i think flyover country has a different mindset about these things than northeasterners in general.
