Bergen Record via Fox News ^ | November 26, 2012 | Kevin Wexler

Posted on 11/26/2012 3:49:37 PM PST by Olog-hai

Donna Vanzant struggled through flooded streets and downed power lines two days after superstorm Sandy to reach the ravaged marina she owns in Brigantine. …

Vanzant has been moved by the many kindnesses she received from friends, family and customers. She heard from countless people after the photograph of her hug with the president was published, including from strangers as far away as Vietnam who wished her well.

She said she was honored to meet Obama, but she is also frustrated that she has yet to receive help from either her insurance companies or the government. “The president told me I would get immediate help,” she said.

“Looking back on it, it wasted a lot of people’s time,” she said of the visit. …

He probably thought that he was in Benghazi.

Waste of time....that hug helped get Obama elected so for him it was not a waste of time....for her...well what did she expect? He doesn’t need her any more and he has important things like a round of golf to attend to after all he is the President.

Is anybody surprised? The election is over, and the photo-op has served its purpose.

Let the b*******s freeze in the dark.

Man, that Bronco Bama is COLD....

Didn't they explain "redistribution" to you? The first thing you have to do is get over the idea that anything is "yours", including your "time".

Let the most densely populated area of the nation feel the weight of their own liberalism. Obama’s safely re-elected now. He no longer needs them.

“Is this really surprising?”

Considering the utter silence of all (still living) witnesses in Benghazi, my question is, why was this allowed to be reported?

Immediate

1.Occurring or done at once; instant.
2.Relating to or existing at the present time: "his immediate priority".

What Donna doesn't understand is that the Bamster believes if he says it then it miracously happens without any further ado.

You see Donna according to Jamie Foxx Barrack Obama is your lord and saviour so count your blessings and move on.

I know there are people there who voted for Romney. I wish they didn’t have to go through this. But I have no pity for the liberals.

Cuomo is getting $27 million to hire Sandy victims to clean up. How much is Christie getting?

“...to reach the ravaged marina she owns in Brigantine.”

I’m guessing that once Obama realized she was a “one percenter” he quit answering her phone calls.

Beware those aid cards and checks - they’re coming back NOW (over 7 years later) after Katrina recipients claiming they were actually loans and need to be repaid. You can appeal, if you still have the ‘right’ records.

You were used by Obama and tossed aside like a Starbucks coffee stirrer, Donna. That's all you are to him. Get used to it.

Hey Donna Vanzant, I bet you were one of those 2008 0 bummer voters who fainted when you saw the won. Well, I don’t care if your place ever gets repaired. I and many other makers are sick and tired of you takers wanting to have US producers fix YOUR problems. Go find a sugar daddy to get your place fixed.

You and your ilk elected the dumbest person to walk into any room. Hope you have an o bummer phone and call someone who cares, because my “I care” meter broke after you and fellow dummies reelected the idiot. Your best bet would be to get a rope and tie it to the supports of a bridge and jump. 0 bummer will be there to help you just as much as he is now.

I’ve worked for over 40 years and paid taxes the entire time. You have probably been laying on your back popping out welfare babies that I AM PAYING for and I detest your lifestyles. Other parts of my comments are self censored for fear of being banned.
