Where’s Obama As “Despair Deepens” for Victims of Hurricane Sandy?

I was shocked by reports that President Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy helped him get elected. Are they that fickled, naïve, and intellectually shallow? I don’t believe his response to the Hurricane made a bit of difference to these voters. The people who claimed that this was one of the reasons they voted for Obama were going to vote for him anyway.

Those of you who say you did vote for Obama because of his response to Sandy, what do you think of him now? What did he actually do? He showed up with Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey (whose political future could be toast), made some promise that no one will be left behind, and then went back on the campaign trail. But before leaving he vowed, “No bureaucracy. No red tape.”

A line from the film Big, starring Tom Hanks, comes to mind: “Suckers!”

Where is he now that the election is over? “‘FEMA packed up everything yesterday and left the area,’ said MaryLou Wong, whose home in the Midland Beach neighborhood was destroyed. ‘They haven't come back.’” They don’t need to. Obama got reelected.

Here are some headlines describing what people are going through with President Obama nowhere to be found:

FEMA office on Staten Island closed 'due to weather'... Despair deepens... TAX HIT THREATENS VICTIMS... Looting Reaches Epidemic Levels... Gas Crisis Could Last Weeks... Looting Reaches Epidemic Levels...

Here’s what one person wrote in a comment about the people in the state that went solidly for Obama and praised the president for his response:

Devastated residents of New York are FORCED to stay in COLD, DARK homes — freezing in the shadows because of {urban/thug} LOOTERS — no power, little help and no hope.

This is an EPIC FAILURE of leadership from Obama down to the LOCAL LEVEL — yet you people rewarded Obama with a bucket-full of electoral votes.
THAT is the definition of stupidity AND hypocrisy {you know you'd be burning a Republican president in effigy by now}.

The media would be falling all over themselves to report how a Republican president had abandoned the people of New York. All he wanted to do was use their tragedy as a backdrop to his campaign to pick up a few more votes for the election.

Obama supporters are all about image. Well, they got their image. He and Michelle are right now planning what vacations and golf outings they’ll be going on in the next four years.

    He's setting up a FEMA "resettlement" camp for old white people on Staten Island. Might as well take advantage of a crisis!

      Obama is on his way to Burma because he wants the Bush tax cuts to expire. He doesn't want to be around to argue over this issue.he is the Messiah and his attitude has not changed. My way or the Highway!

    I will be haggling FEMA for a bed by a window. Need to see if I recognize any new arrivals. Hoping the death-train ride will be comfortable while chained and cuffed to hold-points. Being a former deputy sheriff, I know how snug cuffs are suppose to be. I wonder if the brown-pants will follow LE cuffing protocol?

    A serious component of the misery felt by so many is effing BLOOMBERG - won't let the National Guard in "because they carry guns".....people are homeless and starving in the streets of Staten Island. I have friends driving around with trucks of donated items and WATER!! Bloomberg was a significant player in Fast & Furious I tell you.

      I don't care anymore. Let NY and NJ take care of their own residents. I'm not sending any money to help fund the relief efforts. These people can wait for their beloved governments (state and federal) to help them. That's what they voted for. I need my money to take care of myself and my family.
      And when unemployment hits 10%-12% and the U6 rate exceeds 20+% and when Obamacare kicks in and these people have to wait in long lines, are denied (quality) care, wind up dying due to the Death Panel...I'm NOT shedding a tear. Because I just don't give a damn anymore.
      All these people who want the govenment to take care of them, I've washed my hands of them. I've come to realize THERE IS NO EDUCATING THE STUPID OR THE IGNORANT.

        I'm so glad I have a place to come to where others think as I do. I am so angry I just can't concentrate on anything else. I am so glad there are so many people that feel the same. We can't let 4 more yrs go by without stopping this fraud of a president. How the hell did he get 4 more yrs!!!! Sometimes I think that Obama's people put something in something that caused these people to lose their common sense! Maybe they got hypnotized? This just can't be!

        • FineTexan

          They were hypnotized as Hitler hypnotized the Germans. Did we not tell them? Over and Over. Before the election my sister told me it is prophesized that the 'Great Deceiver' would be elected. Months ago a close friend who was very ill died saw a man with a dark face. It was Obama and he is the Devil's helper. I am not against blacks; I am against this evil man. The Negroes and Whites alike will suffer with him as president.

      • FineTexan

        I heard my city San Antonio TX sent a crew of CPS Energy workers to help but they were turned away. We are not a union state. You can work here without being union.

      Obama also showed what a Dupe Christie is. This RINO fell for Obama like a hard rain in Florida. Christie, oh he'll be re-elected again, because in a short while he'll confess he's really a Democrat.

      • granny

        Unless you forgot....that was Christie's territory. He did not come out to meet BOZO, he was already there. He was a gentlemen by not telling BOZO to go **ck himself. Instead he did what all the polticians do....shake hands. It could be their arch enemy and they will still shake hands. Christie is the good guy and he most certainly will give them trouble when the time comes to yell yea or nay. You go by what the man has done in the past......not what he HAD to do once.

        • DontTreadOnMe11

          He more that shook hands with obama. He PRAISED him. I hope people remember that if Christie ever runs for a national office.

        He had his photo op with Christie and it made him look good. I think it helped to get him re-elected. Don't like it but, where is he now when the people are really suffering. Didn't he leave for some foreign land? I hope he stays there!

      • b johnson

        You got that right. I have no trust in that man as president. He has messed up this country in 4 years. I don't see him doing anything any better the next 4 years.

        • FineTexan

          I cringe at your referring to him as a 'man'. He is not a man he is a vile thing. An evil apparition. The reincarnation of Hitler. His voice and the sight of him give me chills and feelings of dread. From the day I heard him speak.

    • TPM

      Perhaps the average person in NY depends more on the government. OR ... maybe the self sufficient ones are hunkered down and are not complaining. Whereas others, less prepared, are raising a stink. Where I come from, backup power, fuel, food & water are just common sense.
      Responsible and forward thinking people don't rely on the government for any more than they have to. Those making the ruckus, in NY, are sheeple. Sheeple always need to be looked after. They can't (or won't) provide for themselves. They are helpless and they are "entitled."
      Obama seemed to have an agenda, over the past 4 years. Seemed to me that he was trying to get as many people as he could to depend on government. Look at the increase in the number of people on food stamps, disability and extended unemployment benefits. Look at all the Mexicans he opened the (back) door to and promised amnesty, health care & lots of other goodies. Once 51% (or more) of the voting population is consistently looking for and expecting govt. freebies ... we become "Far Western Europe."

          That is the exact point: sheeple waiting. Those of an independent mind have already waited, 5 minutes passed, and they realized the only help you're going to get is what you give yourself. That is the point everyone is making.

    • JustCalmDownAlready

      This is what happens when a major storm hits a major metropolitan area. It's one of the most reasonable times to have people rely on government, especially a federal government, as local and state resources can be out of order or severely impaired.

    It's all good in NYC and the other areas I saw it on the news don't listen to those people on the street they just like to complain. BO solved all of this with his visit.

        The Joke is on who ever voted for BO. He played them like the fools they are. And the Libtard Press goes along with it. The people effected by Sandy are getting screwed over how can it take this long to get help to people in NYC? And the press ignores their misery and BO rolls on to his next party.

        YOU got it right

      • rmwayne

        I agree completely. I'm from Louisiana. Every time a hurricane hits us those left wing yankees don't do anything but smirk and say "those rednecks are stupid to live there". Well, now the shoe is on the other foot. Let their hero Obama help them. They're the ones, along with the west coast who put that pig back into office.

        • FineTexan

          I have to say I agree with you! 100%. Did they not realize it could happen to them? I was working in Lafayette LA when Katrina hit. When I saw the people coming in from the areas that were devastated I got out of there. Stores close to my apartment were being robbed. I did not like the looks of the situation. I cancelled my contract and returned home to Texas. I watched the coverage day and night. All of the horror, looting and suffering. It was like I was living it too. I heard that looters were coming in from other states up north with bigger, better boats, BIG suvs and better guns than the local and government law enforcement. I only heard this once on the news from a military colonel. It is kind of funny(?) to see the yankees get it! And to believe and elect Obama? I do have compassion and sadness for the people though. Christy had to suck up to Obama. He had no choice if he was to get help for his state. He was/is in shock.

        • rmwayne

          I know what you mean. I had relatives from New Orleans stay with me while Katrina did her damage. And then a few weeks later Rita hit the southwest corner of the state where I live. But a lot of people in southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas around Beaumont almost considered it a blessing because when we were hit, it drove away a lot of the gangbangers and hood rats who had come to Lake Charles and Beaumont. Houston ended up getting stuck with a lot of them though.

        • 1_Eddie_1

          Sandy may have been a gigantic storm, but she was not a Cat 5. The northeast would really be devastated if she was. I wonder how many yankees will get generators and freezers? I wonder how many will learn how to can food? Probably very few will.

      • DontTreadOnMe11

        The arrogant people of the N/E deserve what they got. They have voted over and over for more government. I wonder how that's working out for them? I do not feel sorry for them and wouldn't lift a finger or donate a dime for them.

    NY and NJ were already going to vote for the king. But Christie did show himself to be a doofus and I hope his career is over and his family goes without. In New York Cuomo is the same, laughing and joking about the ready to eat meals he wants to stuff down people's throats while doing nothing to get anything else moving. It looks to me like a coordinated slow down by the governments of both NY and NJ. This is why I always say "Don't wait for help you are on your own and more so now than ever." Prepare yourself people. Stock up, load up.

    Do you people really think that these poor people affected by hurricane Sandy were able to get out and VOTE? I think they were a bit preoccupied don't you? It is not their fault he got re-elected. It's all the voter fraud and blacks that swayed the votes his way. Pitiful.

      You are absolutely right about California. We just voted in a measure to pour more money into our worthless public schools, with no guarantee that the money will even go towards improving education or doing anything for the students. It can, and it no doubt will, be used for teacher raises and pensions..while students can't name the three branches of government after three consecutive days of being taught on it. Linemen make at least 80,000 a year but won't show up during a blackout because they're on strike for HIGHER WAGES, while small farmer owners in their sixties and seventies are working themselves half to death, trying to hold onto their ranches and keep from going under from the massive taxes, fees, and regulations they are saddled with. It is a mess. It's every bit as bad as anyone says. And yes, if I could possibly move out, I'd be packing today.

    Without a willing media, nothing negative about Obama will ever surface. The last 4 years serves as proof of that.
    Conversely, with a willing media everything negative about conservatives will be made front page news and repeated over and over again for weeks if not months.

    Anything positive about conservatives will be buried or changed to appear negative.

The same point made in this article, I commented the same thing on a different article last night that Sandy, like Benghazi, should've been enough to get obama fired, not reelected. We had both of these embarrassments at the same time & these moronsput him right back in office. Now we hear about Iran taking a shot at a drone in International airspace that was kept quiet until after the election. Iran was testing obama to see if they could get away with it & the fool ppayed right into their hand by showing he was too afraid to even let ppl kno about the incident. It won't be long before they do something else a little riskier. The enemy is being emboldened by this president who would rather smile &bow to foreign leaders & talk things out with the schoolyard bully & at the same time pit Americans against each other in class warfare with entitlements & abortion & hold the ppl hostage with this fiscal cliff thing in order to get his way & blame it on republicans. He is a criminal, a domestic terrorist posing as a president & belongs in gitmo, not the White House!

Suburban and rural Atlantic County also went for Romney but unfortunately those votes were overshadowed by the welfare voters in Atlantic City. Statewide, suburban homeowners, business owners, and taxpayers voted to preserve their independence and the Constitution. The large population centers - Camden, Newark, Paterson, and all of mostly Spanish-speaking Hudson County - all voted to preserve their tax-funded government welfare checks.

    Who are they going to blame when their world comes crashing down, Bush? I read a post a couple of days ago regarding the economic woes being Bush's fault wherein one of these idiots that voted Obama back into office said, "it takes eight years before the full effect of a previous president's term in office is known"? Boy, if he's right, he and his fellow idiots are going to be in for one hell of a surprise in four more years. We people with some common sense realized that the current POTUS was going to be bad for America before he was inaugaurated AND boy did he fulfill our expectations. Did any of these idiots really ask themselves what his particular qualifications were, not really, they just voted for him because he talked a good story. He may have "talked the talk" but he certainly didn't "walk the walk"....do they remember all his unkept PROMISES!

    Just wait until the next 4 years are over, O wouldn't even be able to get elected as dog catcher. However, I thought this about what has already happened and he still got a majority, by just barely. I feel so sorry for them but will not send them a dime. If they think government is the answer to everything then I guess they got what they deserved but I still feel sorry for them. I just remember who the country demonized Bush's response to Katrina but now the lib media are pratctically ignoring the poor response from O. He made a phto op with Christie and then off the Las Vegas he went. They demonized Bush for 4 trillion debt in 8 years but haven't hardly mentioned O's 5 trillion debt in less than 4 years. When are the American people going to wake up. When you turn against citizens like people of the tea party, you get no help from the people or the government. One comment earlier is that people learn, but I really doubt it anymore. Look at the gas prices that affects almost everyone, O was one of the main reasons for it. And down the road, all those illiterates who think Obamacare is so great will rue the day that it was passed. We go to Fla for the winter and all of our canadian friends down there when it passed, said to us, you will be sorry.
    I guess they are the best people to tell you how great they think it is. I guess when you are young and healthy it really doesn't impact you, but when you get older and have a lot of medical problems, if it isn't life threatening, you don't know how long you will have to wait. One friend of ours waited over 3 years.

    The next four years could/will be catastrophic for this nation. Meanwhile Obama fiddles.
    I am sooo disgusted with those who reelected him, and absolutely furious with the evangelical Christians who wouldn't vote because they had to maintain their spiritual 'purity'
    by noting voting for a Mormon. WTHIWWP? Our country will be utterly destroyed by this administration! You watch. In four years there will not be another election. Obama will write an executive order making himself President for life!

  • ronpaynter

    It is unfortunate that so many people have to suffer because of the stupidity of others. Those idiots that voted for this bum,Obama.should be hanging their heads in shame for the treament these Americans are receiving. If it was Haiti,or the Dominion Republic, or any other non-American country needing the assistance our own people need,this government could not do enough fast enough.You know this is only the beginning and won't end for 4 long inglorious years.

    Obama is simply paying back the honkies for Katrina I would have to assume. I honestly wouldn't doubt if he is doing this, Holder dropped charges against the Black Panthers for

    Well, I live in NH. Our state shows blue on the electoral map as well. Don't think for a minute that we ALL fit into the mind-set of the democratic party or the liberal lies. Once upon a time we here in NH were conservatives by majority. Our 'first in the nation' state was hijacked by the 'free staters' and there are a good many of us trying to get it back. I understand your frustration with NY & NJ, I sometimes feel the same way until I realize that I'm lumped into a category that I am not fundamentally a part of.

  • Gringo Infidel

    'Pigs at the trough.'

    A republic that has an electorate that votes for hand outs will collapse. Rome did and now we are looking at it too.

    Who will man the ramparts to defend against the barbarians now? The welfare crowd? The talking gossips that pass for news organizations?

    Pity us all and may God help us.

  • WilliamSpires

    The democrats are still talking about Katrina but after Obama made a "CAMEO" appearance at the New Jersey/New York destruction and left even quicker, they can no longer see any problems and they are on their own.

    Well, there you go. The photo op for the election brownie points is over, he's reelected and doesn't have to play all presidential anymore. Youse guys can go screw yourself, sez king zero. He's busy with planning the final plans for the Marxist takeover of America. You lucky New York people are the first to taste the reality of life at the end of this next 4 years. Detroit from coast to coast.

  • Kat

    Idiots all of them. Well, all I can say to them is just sit back, relax and wait for Obama to come to your aid! In the past I have donated to situations like this, but not any more. I have to worry about my family now! They didn't help me any by putting him back in office. So good luck to you! Oh, maybe your main stream media will run something how Obama hasn't bothered to show up to help you! NOT! They don't care about you either. Use your head,figure it out for yourselves! You were used and put out to a frozen, flooded, dark pasture by your leader!

  • samtman

    So far the Gov, has send them 4 Billion Dollars, it came from the Gov. Fima emergency fund. Its estimated that it will cost about 40-50 Billion $$ to repair the damage. Comapered to 104 Billion $ to run the war in Afganistan.per year.. Would anyone like to have their taxes increased to pay for New Jersey, New York's damage. Perhaps in that one traffic light town that most of the posters here live, would have the money to help out.

  • G W

    I feel sorry for them but you get the government you voted for and I suspect these people for the most part voted for the socialist? They will find out the hard way that the best government is that which is closest to the people. It is a hard lesson to learn.

  • rbcola

    I have family and friends in NY, LI, NJ and PA. It is absolutely unconscienable what is going on related to the defastation caused by Sandy and the Northeaster that came in.

    The Feds, FEMA, Red Cross, the State and local officials have either failed or just not "on top of it" .....We to, as individuals, were too quick to discount "risks". Not responsible either.

    Change our extreme dependency on the Feds / FEMA. The states need to plan for - hold onto moneys that go to the Federal government and FEMA.....it's too easy for it to "disappear". Its obvious - they aren't good at their jobs, perhaps irresponsible.

    Blame President Obama 1st and foremost......not because he's President....but because he got out in front of the TV cameras and SAID HE WAS GOING TO CUT THE RED TAPE, HE WAS GOING TO RESPOND IN 15 MINUTES OR LESS. WELL SO FAR NEITHER HE nor FEMA, Red Cross DELIVERED ON PROMISES and commitments and people are really suffering as a result of it.

    Showing up for the "Fanfare".....Making promises he either can't or chooses not to make good on. I'm truly disheartened about this man. The lying, the deception, the irresponsible behavior not only of him on a personal level.....but his administration and our government officials.

    Honestly - I want a President we honor and respect and admire. We don't have that. The country is torn and divided. We need a Commander-in-Chief who comes through when times are tough. One who leads by example, isn't afraid to get his hands dirty.....who uplifts and brings us together in a common cause and LEADS in a way WE WANT TO FOLLOW.

    As an American I grew up....got a job....got married....moved out on our own...both worked....had a budget / balanced the checkbook and had a plans and goals for our future......We thought nothing of being responsible...because it was RIGHT.....it was the American way. We tried to keep our word......take care of family, friends and neighbors on our own.....The Government didn't have to make a law to get us to do it. We TRIED ALWAYS TO DO OUR BEST - TRIED TO TELL THE TRUTH & DIDN'T HAVE TO SING our OWN PRAISES......because actions speak louder than words.

    What's happened to those American ideals?????

    We're in trouble. I'm praying for those impacted by Sandy. I'm praying that our President "sees the light" and really comes to realize how much we need him to be the Commander in Chief.....not the Celebrity in Chief. Less time talking, more time DELIVERING.

  • rmwayne

    To all you dumbass yankees who voted for Obama.....you're getting what you deserve. I feel sorry for pets and the few people up there who have a brain and didn't vote Obama communist, but the electoral map didn't lie. All of Dixie voted Romney, all of Lincoln yankeeland voted Obama.

    After Obama rewards himself and Moochelle with a week off playing golf and eating steak and lobster with the elites who propped him up, it was announced that he will be visiting the hurricane devastation again - next Thursday!! TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE ARE GETTING THE HELP THEY NEED! So, hang in there, you only have to wait another week - scared in the cold and dark until he delivers another set of promises.

    It was just another Photo Op

  • FloridaJim

    Obama came to Christie fro a photo op and then campaigned the entire time of Sandy FEMA failures. The New York and Washington politicians[Napolitano, Bloomberg, Cuomo, Schumer, Rangel et al] told us how great FEMA was dong while the people in Staten Island, Brooklyn ,The Bronx and Long Island told us the failure from this elite group of slugs. If this were Bush and Brownie the media would have crucified them for their failures and disappearance but with Obama we get fawning and lies.

  • raccman

    Obama, the Fraudulent Racial President doesn't give a damn for White folks - only their votes and their money ! We will soon see our country BANKRUPT with a president who has no idea what to do about it !

    Obama is where he always is when he needs to fulfill his duty's as President, HE IS MISSING IN ACTION! Maybe these victims will think twice before believing all of Obama's lies next time he promises them something, The one thing he is good at is BREAKING HIS PROMISES!

  • jimpeel

    Obama put on his show for the hurricane victims and wowed them to get their vote because they were so impressed by his response. Now that the useful idiots have put him back in the White House he is nowhere to be found.
