The federal and local Socialist govt has abandoned it's citizens

Really demonstrates the lack of federal and local help in this nation from the Socialists...

I saw this the other day and finally found it...

They love to praise themselves - while real citizens are let out in the cold...a month has gone by and the only thing running are the bulldozers!

"The federal and local Socialist govt has abandoned it's citizens."

It's a lesson taught throughout history, yet one that statists never learn: Government CAN'T do what citizens do best.

Hey, don’t they realize that Bush isn’t President, and can’t be blamed for it, so now it can be brushed aside. ??? Move on, we have other pressing business.

Exactly what I was thinking...I wonder what % voted for him right after the storm...waiting for the knight in shining armor to come to the rescue...

I wonder if anyone has Photoshopped Zero in armor — like that Nazi poster where Hitler was glorified as such???

BTW, Chuck Schumer’s former district took a hit also, and they are still struggling to get back to normal. That’s the south portion of Brooklyn by the water and across from Breezy Point. Lets not go there.

I wonder if and when the amount of damage that Obama, his cronies and his entitlement hordes have done to this country -- it's culture, the economy, our world-standing -- will be so great that that at some point people at large will finally realize how bad things are, regardless of what the "news" media keeps pouring into their heads.

Who knows? Maybe never.

Why is anybody surprised? Staten Island is the whitest and most middle-class part of NYC, so of course nobody cares about them.

Back in the Katrina days, the national news coverage lasted for months. Six weeks in, Sandy is barely a local news story.

Less than in your state.

Less than in your country.

Maybe if the media bashed Obama and Cuomo for their poor disaster response like they did Bush they would get some action. On a positive note, you d-bags voted for them now live with it.

Bush's fault!

"Staten Island resident Scott McGrath is still demanding answers a month after the storm".

Here's your answer, Mr. McGrath:

November 6, 2012 Staten Island election results:

Barack Obama - 50.4%
Mitt Romney - 49.6%

People get exactly what they vote for.

FOX news is right there. It’s a major story. No one is reporting this. In Arizona, it’s like the East coast just kind of dropped off into the ocean.

Don’t they realize that Obama said he would not rest till all the terrorists who caused this catastrophe were brought to justice... time to move on, Obama spoke, all is well...
