NJ Gov. Chris Christie welcomes Pres. Obama.
Or is the media selling hysteria again?
Volunteer professional utility workers from out of state (and in state), coming to help people in New York and New Jersey are being turned away by local union workers because the volunteers are non-union. The liberal Democrat unions would rather have everyone suffer, and maybe die, than break their union power (and benefits). Even local utility workers are not trusted by the people.
NYC Mayor Bloomberg refused to let the National Guard in–because he doesn’t want any guns on the street. He’s using huge generators in Central Park to power the media for the NY Marathon on Sunday. Why can’t generators be shipped in or airlifted in from elsewhere?
This situation is worse than Katrina, in New Orleans. Riots, looting, hunger, and freezing temperatures, it is unbelievable.
The Democrats are in charge of all this. They were very quick to blame Bush and the Republicans for every discomfort and want during the 2009 storm on the Gulf Coast.
Is there any reason the National Guard cannot air lift supplies and drop them off in parachutes? (I suggested this on Twitter from the first day after the storm.) This is what the National Guard is for–to help masses of people in crisis. They are trained for this. But the Obama administration doesn’t like to use trained people to do trained jobs. Ask Delta Force.
Where’s that Democrat craze for martial law?
Where is all the efficiency, the improved service? The Democrat governors promise to cut all the government red tape, all the regulations–all the things that Democrats love, because they want to get help directly to the people. This is unbelievable irony. Democrats promise to deliver the people through lifting the tyrannical impositions they themselves have placed upon the people.
What happened to the Occupy Wall Street spirit? That great outdoors spirit of camping out? The Democrats did better providing for the anarchist slobs of OWS than they are real people in need.
This is a spectacle of criminal neglect, indifference, and dereliction of duty.
Exactly that kind of behavior we see in the Democrat leadership of the Benghazi fiasco. Will there be deaths in New York and New Jersey that we can properly call “murder” by Democrat fiat?
No power for New York. No power to the people. They’ll all have to tough it out like good hippies, anarchists, and liberals. This is the government of their choice. Even when average liberals work, and work hard, it doesn’t change their delusional ideas about government. They still look to the nanny state to take care of them. Perhaps these horrible, tragic conditions will awaken them all to the fact that the government simply cannot take care of anyone–but itself. The masses cannot depend on the few Democrat elitists with large mouths and empty promises.
Christie may have thought he was really going to get some help, quick. That was more of an expression of desperate need than of sound reason from experience.
Bloomberg didn’t want Obama coming into NYC, but he also doesn’t want the National Guard. Apparently, all he wants is the Marathon.
Obama can’t even act like a president for more than a few photo ops. He runs from serious problems. He is afraid of the military. He appears quite cowardly, actually. Liars usually harbor profound fear. They are never sure what is going to happen, or when their lies are going to be exposed.
Remember Benghazi. That says it all. Bye-bye, Obama.
