Skip to comments.Sandy boomerang effect on Obama
Posted on 11/01/2012 2:09:09 PM PDT by shoedog
Obama team may regret what they thought was an opportunity with Hurricane Sandy. As the linked story mentions Media talking about people eating out of dumpsters, no electricity, gas shortages. Those photo ops will be forgotten quickly and these stories are going to be going on through election day.
The Obama team should have been suspicious when Christie rolled out the red carpet.
He was playing chess while they were playing checkers.
That may be the price of thinking you can play president for a couple of days and then get back to campaigning.
Being president is hard and doesn’t always work the way greek columns do.
I guess those EBT’s, Debit Cards, and cash aren’t being handed out fast enough (or, more likely, they only are handing them out in Da ‘Hood).
I was driving home and almost wrecked my truck from laughing so hard!
“Ask ‘em when they’re running out. Ask ‘em when there’s no heat in their homes and they’re cold. Ask ‘em when their engines stop. Ask ‘em when people who have never known hunger start going hungry. You wanna know something? They won’t want us to ask ‘em. They’ll just want us to get it for ‘em! “
Never take over the wheel of a disaster...
Obama needed a hail mary, and this was his only chance he figured. It was a risky move, that probably wasn’t going to work, but what the hey...
Or, maybe he’s just a total idiot? Yeah, probably the latter...
Maybe those celebrities who left lower Manhattan for upper Manhattan could contribute a bit of their mega bucks to help the unfortunate.
sounds like a non believing pesky Jersian. I’ll have to ask Christie after the election if it was true...*smiles*
Talk about rope-a-dope! LOL!
Call it martial law Monday!!! gonna get real ugly new orleanians got nothing on new yorkers and jerseyites !!!
geez i am losing sympathy day by day for many of these people. i’m in colorado in a house so yes i have more space to store stuff and i have stores within walking distance and cash on hand (and the means to protect it). it’s been 5 days and they are running out of food? they are cold? don’t they have blankets? with very little perperation a week in late october without electricity and heat and gas would be merely an annoyance. hell i would use my cars more to keep cell phones charged.
maybe i’m just too old to care any more what people think of me.
Give it another week. UGLY is just getting started.
That’s for sure. Things could get really ugly there real fast.
Notice that we are having a parallel experience collapsed into a small time frame? On Sept. 11 there was Benghazi, a terrorist attack, and now this “version” of Katrina. It is like a gigantic cosmic theatre is showing us a comparison. The warm up was when BOTH political conventions had to work around bizarre weather.
Yup. That is exacty what the big man was doing. He was laughing his ass off because he knew it will be a month at least before things wil return to normal.There will be massive food and fuel shortages in the meantime. It’s already getting ugly here and Christie will simply ay-Obama broke his promise.Lookfor that around Monday
ConEd has announced that it will be Nov. 11 before power is restored in lower Manhattan. I have coworkers who live in suburban NY (White Plains, etc), and they still have no power, and will probably not have it restored for a week or more.
Saw the movie but never read the book.
[Forrest empties the net with their “catch” and debris falls to the deck]
Forrest Gump: Still no shrimp, Lieutenant Dan.
Lt. Dan Taylor: Okay, so I was wrong.
Forrest Gump: Well, how are we going to find them?
Lt. Dan Taylor: Well, maybe you should just pray for shrimp.
Forrest Gump: [voice over] So I went to church every Sunday. Sometimes Lieutenant Dan came too, though I think he left the praying up to me.
[another catch of junk is dumped onto the deck]
Forrest Gump: [dejected] No shrimp.
Lt. Dan Taylor: Where the hell’s this God of yours?
Forrest Gump: [voice over] It’s funny Lieutenant Dan said that, ‘cause right then ... God showed up.
