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.
I’m so glad I got out of that godforsaken state (one day before Sandy hit)!
