Christie says East Coast waiting
´seven times longer´ than Katrina
victims for federal help

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slammed Washington once again Wednesday for its slow response in getting aid to Hurricane Sandy victims. “We’ve waited here now seven times longer than the victims of (Hurricane) Katrina to get help from the federal government,” he said, adding that some people were still waiting. Christie made his comments Wednesday on the Fox Business Network, one day after his annual State of the State address. Christie, who is up for re-election this year, has upped his public profile since Superstorm Sandy hit New Jersey last October. Last week, he called out House Speaker

Comments:
If you can´t see it yet, Christie just can´t keep his mouth shut and work with the other RINO GOP to get fed the "pork" he is requesting. Already given $9B in Sandy relief aid, 0bama´s new disciple demands more. Tea Party needs to start looking for a replacement.

Katrina would have gotten help instantly but their stupid gov wouldnt give GW to send in the troops (so to speak). I am not fond of beaches or water and to build expensive homes on the ocean front is the last thing that I would do or even think about. It´s called flood insurance.

It´s Bush´s fault.
I agree with you, OP. Christie is raising his profile, with 2016 in the windshield.

Dang, this could have been Mitt´s fault. The whole nebulous blame various Republicans for no rational reason just doesn´t have quite the same zing as blaming Bush did, does it?

Has the whole political / media class lost their collective minds? People I talk to in the real world seem to be relatively sane. But turn on the Tv or go online and it´s a freakin explosion of crazy.

I don´t believe this. I saw Christie praising Obama for his quick response. So someone else must be saying these things in Christie´s name. Christie was promised help by Obama. (lol)

Hey Lardbutt Christie. Get off your enormous haunches and start acting like a damn governor and not like a food stamp or welfare recipient whose mewling because his government handout check is late.. Quit waiting for the overbearing, oppressive Federal government to bail you out. Don´t you get it? No amount of butt kissing of our first communist president is gonna get you any aid. Your on your own and you´ll have to solve the hurricane problems yourself. So quit whining about federal aid and get to work.

Funny how when there´s a republican in the White House, it´s the president´s fault. When there´s a liberal democrat in the White House, it is the fault of Congress or the states.

Christie, go cry on your buddy´s shoulder. Oh, I forgot Obama will not give you the time of day now that you are no longer necessary to him.

#1 That would have been Louisiana, and its dumb-o-crat governess Kathleen Blanco. Next door in Mississippi, where Katrina actually made landfall by the way, Barbour and the State and Local officials were ready and waiting. As was FEMA, because Barbour had already issued a state of emergency and requested federal assistance.

(Not criticizing, just adding to.)

Two questions for the blowhard.

Prior to the storm, when all of us were told to prepare for the hurricane....did Christie bother to communicate with NJ Transit to be assured that they had followed the report recommendations about the flooding danger for the rail cars?

Following the previous eight day power outage, what communication did he have with the Public Utilities Commission to make sure that JCP&L was prepared for the storm.

In both cases I would bet Christie did NOTHING.

I point my finger at his failure as Governor of NJ.

Hey Chris, the only thing that 0blamer did fast on Sandy was to get on TV and let you kiss his butt.
He could have expended some of the money already appropriated to provide needed emergency relief.
Money to fix the waterfront mansions ofthe rich and famous is not an emergency.

We are Andrew survivors. Our electricity took 7 weeks to be returned to our house. It took us almost a year to settle with the insurance company and complete the repairs. The initial work was done by my husband and myself. It included tearing out all the carpets, general clean up of interior and yard. We did have a window person come and replace all the necessary broken windows. We dried all of our furniture on the lawn in the beautiful Florida sun and we never saw a FEMA representative nor did we call them. We spent the six weeks after the clean up and lock down with our children in a small apartment in NYC only returning when notified that the electric was restored. Most people will find that they have to help themselves. The government postures while the people suffer. Working at your own recovery is the best cure after the catastrophe.

Maybe if Obama throws Christie another dollar bill, he will get off the pole and shake his groove thing again..... but this time there aren´t any voters watching to see his dance. Obama will probably keep his dollar.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Sonoma, Calif. – A woman is facing a possible fine after federal officials say they found a knife inside an enchilada in her bag during security screening at a Northern California airport. Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says the 8 and a-half inch long blade was found Monday at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport. The passenger, who has not been identified, said she made the enchilada over the weekend, and didn´t know how the knife got into the bag.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
