New Yorkers Still in the Dark as Obama Hits the Links

A good chunk of Long Island is still in the dark after 12 days now and nobody seems to care. It’s not like the president needs to show up for a photo op since these poor bastards overwhelmingly vote for him anyway.

He’ll come visit eventually, so hold tight to your candles.

It’s also not clear if power will return to the schools in time, so the town has purchased generators for the schools to run on. National Grid, which manages the power grid owned by LIPA, said 95 percent of residents that live in non-flood zones, should have power restored by Tuesday, but there is no timeline for those in flood zones, MyFoxNY.com reports..

If Bush did this during Katrina the drive by media would have had a field day. I have a golf club resting in my empty chair in my front yard. I think I need to add a sign to let folks know where he's golfing on any given day.

The media would be running a time clock counter on the tv screen all day. They’d be screaming about a huge part of nyc being without power. And the economic loss, the violence they’d actually report instead of ignoring, and he’d be running personal stories up and down the newscast with everyone commenting how the pres doesn’t care, blah blah blah.....

I sense a national movement afoot. We should all place a sign in view of the public indicating the course he is playing on any given day and how many days he has spent on the links since his re-election.

Obama won’t be running for reelection again. You can be sure of this:

He’ll play as much golf as he can.

Michelle and the girls will take as many vacations as they can on Air Force whatevertheycallherplane. Don’t expect her to wait around and fly with Barry. She doesn’t need to. She’s the First Lady after all.

Taxes on the “rich” will increase.

Barry’s definition of “rich” will not be yours or mine.

Our natural resources will NOT be tapped to reduce energy independence.

Gas will hit $5 a gallon.

There will be more money wasted on “green energy” on companies that will be bankrupt before Barry leaves office.

Considering he’s now done well-over 100 rounds of golf so far, it’s be easier to to note the days he’s NOT on the links. Just saying.

obama had his photo-op with the well rehearsed “I care so much” look on his face. Now the election is over, so he and Pravda can now ignore the victims.

As long as lady parts are taken care of, who needs power? /sarc

The air-head voting block does not care about energy issues, people suffering from a poor economy and unemployment, high food prices e.t.c... and these morons claim that conservatives are not smart or caring.

2 plus weeks without power after a hurricane is not anything unusual . I have been with out power after storms for that long without much damage to the area . They always bring up the areas that have the least damage and the highest populations first and then work their way on down from that .

I remember during hurricane Andrew when my house lost power for two weeks and a friends house in a rural area was without power for 6 months (in his area there was more damage to the poles that carried the lines ) .

Still what is going on in New York is made much worse because they have turned down and sent back crews that came to help get the power restored faster because they were non union . Basically the union leaders in New York want their big chunk of FEMA and they do not care how long you have to wait . The mess in New York is caused by non other than the democrats that were elected to run the place .Without outside help there is no way for regular crews to get all power turned back on in a timely manner .

I remember how the libs went nuts cause Bush ate a piece of birthday cake durring Katrina. By this time he had made about 4 trips to NOLA already. The NG and Fema were in a lot quicker than after Sandy.

There was a letter to the editor today in our local paper from a woman who had voted for Obama and she was very upset, complete with crying, because Tennessees’ electoral votes were given to Romney. She said her vote didn,t count, blah blah blah. Too stupid to even know that whoever won the most popular votes got the state.

Wouldn't help. He's only their smiling GQ model window dressing. He doesn't do the "work" or make the decisions, they (whoever they all are?) do everything, letting him play and live lavishly to keep him a happy, relaxed camper so that when they need to pull him out for the public he has that cool, relaxed persona.

The good news is SNL opened with a skit lampooning Mitt Romney and his Family.

Golfing Obama isn’t an issue and the folks without power aren’t an issue either. SNL only thinks things like that count if a Republican is President.

In other words, things are back to normal. Truth to power and all that other fluff.

Did New Yorkers expect differently? This is Obama’s style. He is above the stife of the common person, only needing them to vote at ellection time. And if the NY Times is not complaining about his activities, then there is no problem. As callous as it sounds, they are getting exactly what they voted for. NJ, NY, Conn., Mass. ,etc. love this president, so who to complain, just get back in line as he jets around on our nickle and plays golf. After all, there is no serious financial cliff concerns to be handled in Wash, so lets go hit the links.....

FEMA also closed their offices after Sandy for the Winter storm that just hit. They put signs in the window that said they closed because of weather, apparently not seeing the irony of it all.

If Bush did this. . . the Media would be. . .

I’ve been reading in threads here about an “information war”. A tactic for this situation would be for our people to heap ridicule and scorn on Obama for this - he’s incompetent, insensitive, ignoring the hurricane victims, etc. Make a slogan out of it...put it out there...get some media coverage. Saul Alinsky laid out the strategy and democrats know how to do it. They all use the same “talking point” until it becomes a slogan known by the general public.

It is a little tough to sympathize with New Yorkers.

They voted for a big old poop sandwich with Bloomberg, Cuomo, and now Obama.

They are going to have to eat the whole thing, less bread and more poop.

Yes she did! But when you see your country crumble before your eyes, hard to say “nice”things. Besides when all these folks in the NE thought we were crazy “preppers” , for stocking up on necessities, bet they wished they had food insurance!

But I digress. My mouth is now zipped.....

"It is a little tough to sympathize with New Yorkers. They voted for a big old poop sandwich with Bloomberg, Cuomo, and now Obama. They are going to have to eat the whole thing, less bread and more poop."

Jimmy, 36 out of every 100 people in New York voted for Romney. Do you want them to "eat poop" too? Liberal Maryland and D.C. both "voted for Obama" so to speak, yet FReepers have demonstrated with signs along the highways there and have said that folks honked in support as they drove by.

I don't agree with generalizing by state. Some commenter will inevitably even wish for a giant earthquake to take away part of California. Yet Californians support this news forum that we enjoy.

In the current FR fund raiser California is #1, Maryland is #7, and New York is #12, and all are liberal majority states.

Scoreboard
