'He made a promise to help us and he broke it' (NOT OBAMA!)

When President Obama hugged a tearful New Jersey business owner after Hurricane Sandy ravaged her home and livelihood, it was the image of compassion, promise and hope.

But the victim in the photo, Donna Vanzant, has now revealed that the president's promises to pour aid into the area were empty - and that, after the hug, she merely received a form letter from him. Obama visited the destroyed marina Ms Vanzant owns in Brigantine, New Jersey on October 31 and promised her 'immediate' aid. Soon after, Ms Vanzant wrote him an email.

'Many days later, I got a response back,' she told the Philadelphia Magazine. 'It was disturbing.

A hug, soothing words, but when it comes time to deliver-NOTHING.

A succinct illustration of the President Obama method and results.

That’s pretty much Barky’s job as he sees it. Making empty promises with your money.

Take notice that this is not being reported in the American press, which blamed the Republican Congress and specifically John Boehner.

Obama doesn’t care about New Jerseyans or white people!

Hey Donna... Unfortunately you’re too stupid or apathetic to know who you were dealing with; your purpose was to provide a photo op for an evil, vile, and totally indifferent sociopath who couldn’t care less about the region’s plight. Now you feel played? Too bad, and just in case you think the media might care... He won.

Interesting.

Things become clearer to people when situations become “personal.”

Well, she was a business owner. President Obama probably comforted her by telling her that she didn’t build that anyway.

What do broken promises and lies mean to a man who is held accountable for nothing and by no one?

Nothing.

The majority of Americans have the leader that they deserve.

Obama is essentially sayin’:

“When I was in New Jersey, I said what you wanted to hear in order to get your vote and my photo op - NOW BUZZ OFF !!!”

Some people need to learn the difference between “help” and a “photo op”. Barry went there for a much needed pre-election photo op.

It was probably autopenned, too, just like the bills he signs into law.

There is nothing that Obama does personally anymore except appear at disasters and take vacations.

I dunno, go weld on some underwater twisted beams and screw down some new decking and re-roof her marina and fix her ice machine?

Yes, I have no sympathy for those that participated in letting Obama look presidential and American. Maybe Donna knows how the rest of us felt when she was used as a tool...

To idiots, maybe, or possibly people who were in a coma for the last four years.

Great picture! Bloomberg looks as if he spotted someone with a Big Slurppy and Cuomo looks as if he has gastrointestinal problems.

People were told he was an EMPTY suit but all they saw was a Santa suit. I know I stole the Santa thing from Rush, thanks Rush.
