Posted on 11/03/2012 11:03:16 AM PDT by blueyon
FEMA's vaunted "lean forward" strategy that called for advanced staging of supplies for emergency distribution failed to live up to its billing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
In fact, the agency appears to have been completely unprepared to distribute bottled water to Hurricane Sandy victims when the storm hit this Monday. In contrast to its stated policy, FEMA failed to have any meaningful supplies of bottled water -- or any other supplies, for that matter -- stored in nearby facilities as it had proclaimed it would on its website. This was the case despite several days advance warning of the impending storm.

Oh, and they say he might be there til Monday.
Obama’s FEMA = EPIC FAIL
Love that! Never heard it before, but will enjoy using it, thanks!
Staten Island went for McCain/Palin in 2008.
The voters in your state voted for Dumbo.
And who are you to say that they aren't good Christians?
“Now that Geraldo has blasted all over twitter that he has koi in his pond, I wonder how long theyll last when people have exhausted all of the throwaway food/dumpster supplies and will eat anything? Koi sushi ... sounds pretty good when youre starving.”
Hopefully, those people getting ready to enjoy Whorealdo’s Koi Sushi, will have a good supply of Wasabi to go with the Koi Sushi.
No shit. Would be seeing this:
LOL! Your state hasn’t voted for a Republican for President in thirty years.
What weird choice to crow about. I suspect something else is going on here. Like, you don’t like Baptists.
Who funds FEMA?
He should let the people get the ice.
He can say he was held at gun point, he had no choice. He was overpowered.

Close FEMA and let the market and individual states handle it utilizing regional consoritiums and mutual aid.
So you criticize Staten Islanders for not being good Christians, I defend them, and that makes me a Baptist hater.
What a stupid thing to say.
There are macro issues and micro issues here. Part of the problem, actual leadership has been deemphasized in our culture, in favor of “consensus building” that of course is just nonsense and by definition a lack of leadership.
Today we have multiple layers of parallel organizations that have overlapping duties but don’t seem to do much of anything, except spend ridiculous amounts of money.
Right off the top of my head, the friggin’ Post Office could have a National Food and Water drive for Hurricane Impacted Areas, just like they do annually for the food bank drive. I probably have a case or two of bottled water and canned goods laying around. Multiply THAT by everybody in the country, and USE THE INFRASTRUCTURE WE HAVE already in place. There would be a massive supply in place and delivered door to door, that’s their job.
Instead everybody just stands around and waits for somebody else it’s not my department to “do something”.
From the gov.? Had you said yes they might’ve asked for a “processesing fee”. Sounds odd someone just discovered your business.
Yup. I'm originally from the South (south Louisiana), but now stuck in western Washington state (across the Sound from Tacoma).
The closest small town to me has been fighting tooth and nail to keep "evil Wal-Mart" out of the local market......and yet they welcomed Costco with eager enthusiasm.
The only difference between the two companies is that one is considered "conservative" and the other "liberal".
Laughable, but sad.
