Skip to comments.Sandy Victim Says President Didnít Follow Through on Promise to Help
Posted on 11/27/2012 11:53:26 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
After Hurricane Sandy hit along the New Jersey Shore and throughout New York City, President Obama traveled to the affected area and delivered a message to both victims and the federal government, advising the fed to use no bureaucracy, no red tape get resources where theyre needed as fast as possible. To the victims, he promised assistance. We are standing behind you and we are going to do everything we can to help you get back on your feet.
It was that same day that an emotional embrace between the president and a New Jersey businesswoman, Donna Vanzant, was caught on camera and shared around the world. Its a photo of which Vanzant now says, Its frustrating for me that that picture is even out there right now.

What promise, You guy’s were just a photo op
Shame on her for not having the proper insurance and whining because the Feds did not write her a check.
She should take the government loan that has been offered and rebuild her business.
Once her value as a photo-op was over, into the memory hole
Big deal, no one cares.
The only people that even hear of this are Fox News viewers, and everyone knows Fox is nothing but toxic lies.
Let the party begin, Jaime Foxx’s Lord and Savior is in power for at least four more years.
(I seriously suspect he’ll get a 3rd term).
Bet Donna still voted for him.
Hey look on the bright side Donna, you can still get free birth control, despite the hurricane damage.
Sniff sniff..... Santa’s not real???? Whaaaaaaa!!!!!!!
Hey, Donna, who did you vote for November 6th? I voted for the American.
Her gullibility and trust in Santa “Obama” is her downfall. That is much worse than any material possession she lost.
donna...you ignorant sl**!
Her and 100 million others who voted for him twice and wish they could do it a third time...
I used to harbor some sort of forgiveness for people who voted for 0 the first time around but I don’t anymore. I hope people like this suffer and I am sure that won’t be enough to change their minds, sadly.
Obama got his “optics” while speechifying. These idiots are surprised that they were used???
o was trying for that GWB bullhorn moment. Fail.
He got the points needed to win reelection. Then he didn’t need the people of NY and NJ any more.
He got his face in photos, thus burning in the image into peoples’ minds that he was the anti-Bush-Katrina.
What a fraud.
Shame on her for believing promises from a man who continually breaks them. She can add this promise to the list of promises taped on her refrigerator (currently without electricity).
Well, yes. The potential liability is so high, private insurers won't touch flood insurance. That's why the Federal Flood Insurance program IS. (Which, technically, should be bankrupt or nearly so after Sandy.) The Federal program only covers up to a $250k loss for a residence and $500k for a business. Not much help for many, even if they had flood insurance.
I can't imagine the rates she'd need to pay to cover the flood insurance risk for a MARINA, which is in/on water to begin with.
Makes some sense for a business to maintain reserves to cover such eventualities. Or to move inland, if they can't handle the risk.
.... LOL .... when will the uninitiated into the world of Obama political election psychology ever learn ..... It was all a freakin photo op to help win the election and nothing more!!! The prez wasn't worried about whether he could actually do something about the victims .... He just needed some strategically timed media attention to show concern and make a few well worded empty promises to con more people to fawn all over him a few days before the election...... heck .... it worked didn't it!!
.... My guess is .... His next step will be to drag out the giving out of aid a little bit longer and blame the slow response on the Republicans in some way shape or form.
