NEW YORK (AP) -- President Barack Obama got his first look Thursday at the devastation that Superstorm Sandy waged on New York City, with a helicopter tour above flood-ravaged and burned-out sections of Queens and Staten Island.
Two and a half weeks after the massive East Coast storm displaced New Yorkers, thousands of whom remain without power, Obama took an aerial tour that included Breezy Point, a waterfront community in Queens where roughly 100 homes were burned in a massive fire.

Can somebody get me a Shake Shack burger and don’t forget the fries!

Another photo-op.... that oughtta feed the starving children for a couple days! /sarc
Even though I should be favoring NYC based Shake Shack, I have to go with Denver based Smashburger. They just opened a Shake Shack a mile from me, and Smashburger is four miles away, but I put the extra six miles on the car to go there. Excellent burgers and the chicken’s pretty good as well. And the fries make Shake Shack’s seem like Ore Ida.
Cuomo and Bloomie did an outstanding job of covering up the failures of govt at all levels. Seeing govt fail its citizens in the capital of Big Govt would not play before an election. So Bloomie went after ConEd while his admi failed to prepare the city in any way for such a storm, and Cuomo is doing a daily dog and pony show trying to hide the fact that LIPA IS AN ARM OF NEW YORK STATE. Surprisingly the only arm of govt to be proven competent was the MTA. it had 80% of the subways up and running 72 hours after the storm when experts believed it could take a month. All in all govt planning was a failure and while the emergency services performed well and bravely, they were unable to cope with the task the city and state’s planning failures had created. All these morons had to have done was watch The Discovery Channel in 05 when it predicted this mess and suggested seawall construction and greater dune construction on the barrier islands and beaches. But govt had other needs like salt, sugar, and trans fats, and condoms. But Bloomie and Cuomo have hidden their failures and attacked the easily visible utilities so barky is proud of them.
Obama is not there to survey the recovery. He is there to watch his brother in laws basketball tourney game.
Did he get ‘mooned’?
Wait, it’s wonderful when hussein flies over but not when W did it?
I’m so glad I got out of that godforsaken state (one day before Sandy hit)!
They recently opened up a Smashburger near me. It's on my list, but I haven't stopped by yet. Sounds yummy!
They have Smashburgers around here. Maybe I caught them on a bad day. for 28 bucks (family of 4) I expected better.
Hamburgers...the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast.
“Hamburgers...the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast.”
That is one tasty burger!
Obama panicking New Yorkers again with a flyby?
