Nobody is going to blame Obama for the time it takes to repair the subways, and few who are within range of even seeing it are going to be voting in states where Romney has a chance anyway.
NYers are a tough, resilient people. The markets are open today, and a good chunk of the transportation will be operative by next week.
Oh, and a good number of NYC first responders have gone to help with the aftermath of Katrina and other out-of-state storms too.
I agree that NY’ers are a tough people... but you have a subset of your society that cannot survive without the government supplying almost everything for them. They are the ones that are looting and destroying businesses... oh yes... CNN and Fox have both shown the news clips. You have one of the finest Police and Fire departments in the world... and much of NY City was left undamaged... but lower Manhattan is a mess and surrounding states along the coastline suffered complete destruction... and it will take much time and tempers will flair and those that give nothing to society but are on parasites upon the body of the USA will complain loudest. Go read some comments on cbs tv New York... they are already complaining about how long it is going to take to restore services. They are also blaming Romney and globull warming and basically are a rabid bunch that will turn on obama if they feel that he has broken his promises... promises that he cannot keep before the election.
I quoted directly from the person overseeing the subway repairs (on Fox last night)... and I directly quoted Con Ed. Believe them... they know what they are talking about. They are predicting many days just to clear several feet of sand covering roads into areas completely flooded. My point is that human nature is human nature and obama will not gain from this as his promises are left unfulfilled. I hope you understand what I am trying to say and the point that is being made. It is not a negative on NY... but on people in general.
