If what you say is true then why are there so many with out food, water, electricity, and shelter especially when a major storm has been predicted for several days?
Because instead of using those days preparing for the storm, they sat back in their la-z-boys and popped a couple of six-packs, ignored the evacuation order, and expected the 'gubmint' to hold back the rain - or failing that, provide the sump pump.

I bet most of them were Romney supporters.

What happened to those bootstraps you folks are so adamant about pulling?

Just WHAT DID OBAMA do other than show up for a photo op? Please tell us and all those waiting for some basic necessities of life.
Barack Obama and that repulsive wife and kids of his are lazy good-for-nothing scumbag liars and thieves. He had to buy and cheat to get re-elected. THAT WILL HAUNT the Obamas and Bidens and ALL THEIR SUPPORTERS FOREVER!
This is like a card game and they just won a trick. They've shown their evil faces and the rest of the trump cards WILL BE PLAYED OUT!
High time someone ask Michelle Obama how that Sasquatch daughter liked the trip to Oaxaca and what was the purpose? Was it drug and guns or kiddie porn along with those twelve slutty mooching friends her damn kid drug along? That trip may just be the undoing of the Obamas when the details are revealed! May it haunt them all for the rest of their EVIL LIVES!
what did Obama do??

He won the election in a landslide!!

Over 300 electoral votes.

You are a sore loser.

I'm lovin' it!!

The same can be said about the victims of Katrina, yet if I remember correctly, Bush was blamed for what they went through.

Can't follow along too good?
He said all the people worth over one million had combined wealth of $120 billion.
I showed that the top 400 people alone are worth $1.7 TRILLION.
all people worth at least one million: own a net worth many many TRILLIONS!
The top 20% control 85% of the wealth.
The wealth of all households(PEOPLE):$44 TRILLION.
so just the top 20% control $37.4 TRILLION.
The bottom 80%$6.6 TRILLION.
THE USA IS NOT BANKRUPT!
just dumb right wingers lying.
The rich can afford a small tax increase: 4%.
Ok, 44 Trillion!

44 Trillion would not be available INDEFINETLY!

The GOP must do a lot of soul searching....and reinvent themselves into something relevant. And useful to the American people. I do not think we will ever hear about a " tea party" again,..they are dead.
I believe however that America needs a real viable third party....we really need more choices like other countries have.

Could be because this was the most severe storm to hit the NY area in decades, if not 100 years.

Funny how you nitwits think Obama is the Messiah and can wave his magic wand and fix everything.

In the real world, it takes time to recover from disasters such as Sandy.

How long did it take Nawlens to recover from Katrina??

It still hasn't, and Katrina was in 2005!!

You're such a sorry, hateful person, Nobraina. I've always taken pleasure at your obvious misery in life!!

It will lower healthcare costs if Americans were more fit.

Did you complain when Eisenhower pushed for a more fit America during the Cold War?? When fitness became a national priority??

SEE!

I try to be nice. And they accuse me of stuff.

Hey look at your dollar bill: nice pyramid on the back.

The top little piece is the richest! The rest of it: everyone else.

The richest like it that way. Especially right wingers.

They use money as power. Buy things and people.

Billions spent on Romney! What a waste.

But the rest of that pyramid votes! We won!

The GOP should never win.....ever.

They are against the people.

Let's keep them out from now on, last night great start.

Real economic power for a country comes from a strong middle. The top just don't buy enough. A bunch of hoarders. They have the most and the country suffers.

Read up on it the middle class is under attack. Jobs off shored by the richest like Romney.

We need to raise taxes on this top group. It's coming.

A republican CEO was on this morning saying the same thing. A tax raise on the rich will not hurt the economy at all. We cut taxes for jobs coming here. Cut taxes on middle class. Raise taxes on already rich incomes. Raise taxes on those off shoring jobs. Raise taxes on imports. They will make it here again.

We won! All this is coming soon! Obama is a genius!

I agree 100%. I do believe though, that there should be some kind of balance. I hope that people don't disregard birth control. We still need to be responsible for our actions and realize that if you can't afford to have 4 or 5 children, than you shouldn't. I agree with helping people in need, but at the same time, I don't agree with careless behavior. That kind of behavior is a burden to all who are taxed and expected to contribute to others misfortunes. Like I said, I'm all for helping those in need, but people still need to be responsible. I'm not blaming them for not having jobs when there may not be enough out there; only that they shouldn't stop trying because they feel they may not have to. I pray that everyone is safe, warm and have food on their tables this Winter. No one in need should ever be ignored.

Note to Emaam.

Political victories in the USA are winner take all.

Remember when Bush lost the popular vote to Gore by 500,000 votes??

Bet it didn't bother you that Bush had actually lost the election when the SC anointed him..

He still got to destroy the economy and get thousands of Americans killed.

And you loved it.

You should leave. You never seem to realize when you expiration date is past.
