Another storm has hit the North-East. No more photo ops of Obama hugging Christie and rushing off to Las Vegas. No more excuses. No more deflecting blame by threatening to sue various people. If Democrats really believed in Global Warming, they had 11 years to prepare for rising oceans. But they did nothing. They all have to do real work now.
The nor’easter wind gusts are 60mph. More trees and power lines will topple. Temperatures are below freezing with a freak snowfall of 3.” 1.4 million still without power in NY; total 4 million in region. Winds and sand makes many roads impassable. Sections of LIE are closed. LIRR has stopped running. Drivers are still waiting for hours in gas lines. Flights have been cancelled again. Over 10,000 still need housing.
How about removing regulations preventing getting gas to the region? How about sending FEMA to the badly affected regions? How about sending the National Guard to control the looters? How about waiving the requirement that only union workers can help clean up and repair?
Hard hit areas in Coney Island, Belle Harbor, Red Hook, Far Rockaway and Staten Island haven’t received any attention. People are afraid to leave their home because of widespread looting. These people voted for Obama. They are suffering. Listen to Sandy victims begging for help:
