Obama’s Broken Promises to Sandy Victims
Washington Free Beacon, by Mary Lou Byrd

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/10/2012 5:20:25 AM

Six weeks after Sandy hit the New Jersey and New York coast, residents are still struggling and in desperate need of shelter. Many hard-hit victims are not getting help despite President Barack Obama’s pledge of the full support of the federal government, and they are dealing with red tape the president said would not be tolerated. In the Red Hook community of Brooklyn, N.Y., many residents are still living in their unheated, powerless homes in freezing temperatures. Help from the government for residents has not come.

What did they expect? He said if he hadn´t fixed the economy in 3 years, "this will be a one-term proposition." That´s the most egregious broken promise of all.

Sandy was a crisis that Obama was not going to waste. The photo ops with Krispy Cristie and the phony pledges served the purpose. The election was around the corner and Obama was hustling for votes. Job well done.

He promised all Americans a big vacationland. He knows that you are to broke and to overtaxed to take them so he and Moocher are going to take them for themselves.

Isn´t that sweet of him and Moocher???

After 6 weeks of waiting for Big Government to rescue them you would think these people would get a clue.

I know, we all are aware that if this was a Republican president the media would be screaming about this at every opportunity. I hope those folks up there that voted for Zippy are feeling screwed. Those of us that did not vote for him are sure feeling that way.

And yet.....43% of voters said that Hurricane Sandy was their number 1 issue when they voted. Of that group, 78% voted for Obama.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Ya´ll sold out the country for empty promises. And I´ll just bet these people still blame Bush for Katrina.

The Bible says God is sovereign over every event, every detail. Nothing happens that He does not cause or allow. So you have to think, if that is true, that God allowed Sandy to prevent Romney from getting elected.

That and ORCA - the dismantling of the GOP communication network on election day.

Maybe God, in His divine wisdom did NOT want to give the Mormons an international platform to spew their form lies and deceitfulness to unsuspecting souls. Just maybe the eternal consequences are more important than the momentary inconveniences.

Just a thought

This administration is incompetence on steroids. Have they done anything for the good of this country? Everything they have done has been a disaster from day one. They do, however, excel at throwing million dollar state dinners, planning exotic vacations and blowing through the taxpayers´ money.

obama could easily make it happen if he chose, and everyone knows this. but many if not most of the suffering who voted for him are unwilling to admit the foolishness of their choice, so they will place the blame everywhere else you can imagine.

If all this devastation was in the inner city, FEMA would be right on top of it handing out cash.

The main difference between Sandy and Katrina is the color of the victims. One of the big reasons why the MSM could care less with Sandy.

Oh they voted alright. All of them. Every New England state went for Obama. And we knew this by 8 pm New England time. Obama, Mooch and the kiddies walked out on stage to maniacally screaming crowds, declared themselves winner then everyone went home. Election over before a third of us had finished voting and several states not even counted. What a set up.

Hey ... anyone who expected more was dreaming. Obama´s character was revealed long before Sandy, and keeping promises is not on the list.
..... Besides, Obama got what he wanted out of the hurricane tragedy. Rahm must have been pleased that the president took his advise and didn´t ´waste the crisis.´ The world watched Chris Christie bend over and kiss the president´s butt, again and again and again.

The most pitiful thing is that these people (victims, or whatever) believed Obama and voted for him.

The second most pitiful thing is to watch these people still standing around helpless, with unhappy expressions on their faces, waiting for Momma Government and Papa Obama to take care of them. They have no idea of how to take care of themselves; but then, if they tried, the officious socialist bureaucrats they voted into office would stop them in their tracks.

Even so, few of them will learn from this that the cradle-to-grave promises of Big Government are made to be broken.

Seriously, on Nov.29. I spent 5 hours at Breezy Point and saw NOT A SINGLE FEMA rep anywhere. There were few Red Cross folks, some NYPD/FD but NOT ONE person from FEMA was anywhere to be seen.

Ditto to #17 -- if the victims of Sandy were "minorities", the media would be all over this story and the victims would be receiving all sorts of government assistance.

Imagine how different the response to Sandy would be if Romney was president -- Romney is an experienced businessman of high moral character who has demonstrated his caring for others through charity over the years and who has the experience to govern our great nation. Obama did the same thing to Nashville, Tennessee flood victims.

You know it´s hard, as a Katrina survivor, to get too excited about people who took time out of their clean-up to go to a makeshift polling place to vote for the person who is leading them down the rosy path to destruction. The next few years will be a living hell. Good luck. Elections do have consequences.

Why don´t these seemingly helpless people pull an OWS and go and go storm mayors´, governors´, State and Fed offices. Sit on their front lawns with cameras, etc.

Remember when OWS were in LA and SF...they were getting free gourmet food daily, free lattes, warm blankets, music, money, free med care and other amenities from guess who? The PRIVATE sector. Doctors, attorneys, nurses, chefs, masseuses, and many other donated time, money and property to these vagabonds who created their own peril.

The victims of Sandy are probably being ignored because they are largely white (payback time by BO), largely perceived as elitist Northeasterners who stupidly voted for BO, portrayed in film, TV and other media as rude, loud, greedy, dimwit drunken slobs and bimbos (just think of what "Jersey Shore" did to the reputation of New Jersey, not just in the US, but also a large part of Europe.) And there is no "boogey man" to blame as there was with GW for Katrina.

So, Sandy victims, hope Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Eric Clapton and the rest of the limosouine liberals can get you some free stuff.

Although, I would not be holding my breath. Way more than half of these "fund raisers" for victim relief, rarely get actual financial assistance to the actual victims.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the
