Did Obama Err in Claiming Ownership of the Storm? (vanity)
Vanity

Posted on 11/01/2012 6:25:53 PM PDT by TigerClaws

First, thoughts and prayers to our fellow Americans suffering great loss and to those providing relief and comfort.

A Dem operative was reported shortly after the hurricane, "We're going to shove this storm up Romney's a**."

Now that Obama has claimed control over managing the aftermath, power outage, gas lines, no food, and the chaos of any storm belongs to him. Any negative story now reflects back on Obama.

Will his "look presidential" strategy backfire? Or will te Drive by media cover for him?

He already claimed to be able to lower the sea levels and heal the planet.

I do not see how this can possibly help Obama.

The “photo-op politician” is such a cliche that everyone can see right through things like this.

And there is no way to avoid comparing the response to Katrina, and this ironically vindicates Bush I think, as it further pulls the curtain back on the phony Wizard of Oz, aka “The One.”

How the mighty have fallen.

I’d like to know who owns the DUmpsters where New Yorkers have been dining.

The screaming is already starting. I don’t want to criticize those who are going through this tragedy, but the screaming is going to get a lot worse. It started today with the fuel shortages and then the Staten borough president screaming about the Red Cross. I think this will easily hit critical mass by Sunday. The response will be a critical component in the end game, but I doubt it will work in Obama’s favor.

Yes,,, and YES !

He owns it now.

The response of the Red Cross in those areas is a disgrace.
People living off of food trowaways in dumpsters.
No gasoline, no fuel for heating or generators.

I agree the storm is no help for Baraq and likely a negative.
But R wasn’t gonna win the day in NY/NJ/RI/CT/Mass anyway.
Outside of there, I don’t think there’s much impact.

Why do you think Christie and Bloomberg have been clinging to Obama like white on rice? They’re still going to end up under the bus, but they’ll take a big chunk of Obama with them on the way.

If I’m not mistaken, one arrogant Senator from Illinois wasn’t shy about criticizing ‘W’’s response to Katrina. After watching New Yawkers, most of which are Barry Benghazi’s core constituents, dumpster dive for dinner, I think the GOP could put together a good spot on Barry’s incompetence.

On a serious note, the Media crowning Obama 36 hours after the hurricane rolled through as a savior shows how stupid they are. Electricity will be out for another week. People will get desperate. They aren’t used to this. It is cold. They have no food. They weren’t prepared. This is not the Gulf Coast. They don’t know how to do this.

“Now that Obama has claimed control over managing the aftermath, power outage, gas lines, no food, and the chaos of any storm belongs to him.”

I was thinking the same thing after watching the evening news on Fox. He could not wait to get his face in front of a camera for a photo op. Now he is going to get a lot of the outrage for the lack of gas, food, electricity etc. I already heard someone asking where FEMA is.

With the help of MSM, Obama will be able to get through this up to the election. If he wins, he won’t care about negatives from any of this......... if he loses, he won’t care what is happening to those folks.

I passed by a television today, which had on CNN.

In the graphic below scenes from the flood, were words like “Help is not getting through” or some such.

These words were up for the approx. 15 minutes I was near that television.

My first thoughts were 2, which I bet were very common reactions:

1) This reminds me of Katrina
2) This CAN’T be good for Obama

Probably more than he can chew prior to Romney’s inauguration.

The answer to your title question is a BIG FAT YES.

The poop is hitting the fan already. I've been predicting that by this weekend, the accumulated rage of citizens who have been out of food, water, heat, gasoline and power will be boiling over.

The MSM can hardly ignore it, the way they're ignoring Benghazi.

But look for Team Obama to deflect any blame. At that point, however, Obama ceases to "look presidential."

Obama OWES everything that goes wrong with storm delays, mismanagement, witlessness. By placing himself in the center of things, assuming the mantle of the Grand Savior of the Northeast Who Will Make Everything All Better and Wonderful, he can only look inept, and out of touch with the realistic and possible.

People are cold, dirty, and facing enormous personal losses. They will become angry, and they will focus their anger and wrath upon the would-be Grand Savior of the Northeast.

NJ was hit hard but why does obama choose to visit the 1% with their million dollar beach mansions instead of the middle class communities on Staten island and in bklyn/queens. I think half the deaths are from Staten but still no “official” assistance. The community has rallied and the local response has been inspiring but nobody from the govt can claim to have helped at all.

Obama thinks he can change things by reading from a script. He may say the right things, but he lacks a complete understanding of the real world. Surviving disasters starts with planning and personal responsibility. From that, people help their neighbors.

The people that are in need who are depending on Obama and government will be sorely disappointed and potentially will suffer and some will even the lose their lives. I am positive there will be some starving liberal idiot that will die with his hand held out waiting for someone to take action, and it won’t happen.

Government isn’t motivated the same way as you would be to save the life of a family member or neighbor. Government is a crude, brute force that has no deep feelings for individuals. The collective, yes; but you, your family, or your neighbor, NO.

Obama is in deep crap from now to Election Day.

MSM was non stop Bush bashing after the local officials (Dem governor and mayor) completely dropped the ball.

Now MSM “why isnt the President doing anything” mantra is on Obama.

Apparently there is a possibility of another storm hitting the area next week. I was looking at the Washington Post, but the news is reported elsewhere, also.

“...NOR’EASTER POSSIBLE FOR MID-ATLANTIC/NEW ENGLAND STATES BY ELECTION DAY INTO NEXT THURSDAY...”

I worry for the people without power/heat. If the temperature drops, the situation could be very dangerous.

It read “SUCKS” below “ROMNEY” until it was obscured. To me it appears that this was added afterwards, and then after that “redacted”, whether by the original inscriber or someone else it’s hard to say. I guess it’s not possible to know everything.
