It's clear disasters are bad politics for everyone...
I'll make another prediction that will parallel the past.
Wait until we learn the extent to which Obama and his operatives have manipulated this news story in collusion with the state and local guys, who despite party affiliation, share in the interest of hiding the truth.
Has everyone forgotten Deepwater under this President?
Eventually, the blame game will occur...local, state and feds, each blaming one or the other....
Bloomberg says no to National Guard request because they carry guns
Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.
“We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”
Markowitz demanded the National Guard’s help just an hour before Bloomberg’s press conference, claiming that the NYPD and FDNY are “brave — but overwhelmed” by all the challenges Sandy brought when it visited the borough on Monday night: flooding, power outages, and looting.
“All of our resources have been stretched to the limit,” Markowitz said. “In the name of public safety we need to send more National Guard personnel into Coney Island, Manhattan Beach, Gerritsen Beach, Red Hook, and any other locations.”
How can you even say this? We've got a thread right here at ATS where skads of people were accusing the media and government leaders of "over hyping" the storm. What the hell else do you propose they should have done than to be as blunt as "get out"? There are three sets of victims of this storm: 1. the goobers who chose not to get out, 2. those who couldn't get out (and there are some who couldn't...the elderly, the impoverished, the homeless), and 3. those who did and still lost everything. 2/3rds of those victims are blameless for what happened to them. And the other 1/3rd still deserve our compassion because they lost the same as anybody else...they just also chose, willingly chose, to put themselves in danger. But don't blame loss of life in that 1/3rd on the government. I think it was pretty clear that choosing to stay was not the right choice.
