Personally I think everyone who is using this for political points, at this point in time, is reprehensible. The power is still down. I read a few
hours ago that Bellvue Hospital will be unusable for weeks. WEEKS. Gas stations are either complete out or nearly so across New York into New Jersey.
A story earlier talked about a guy going to P.A. for gas from the NYC area. It's a real, bonafide mess. I'm not sure how they can even judge damage
until some electricity gets turned back on but the sea water wasn't kind.
NY Times On-Going Status Updates
This crisis is ongoing and very much *STILL* in progress. Just as Katrina...in fact, EXACTLY like Katrina didn't even start until AFTER the storm had
begun to move on in terms of the cost and tragedy for the people, so it appears to be here. The storm is gone but the aftermath is just startng as the
true damage is just becoming apparent. This is disaster movie level economidc and infrastructure damage from what the reports are reading like as they
are being put out.
......yet Romney did this or that for whatever motive and ..whaaaa Obama is off in Vegas or doing something with the Red Cross when mentioning his
campaign. Who cares? If Romneys food drive headlines, whatever else they did, give just one community the incentive to HAVE one by reinforcing how
serious a disaster this is still building into, then it was VERY VERY helpful. Obama is also doing all he can by what I see and being Presidential. I
don't EXPECT him to sit in the Oval Office and hide. If he's done his homework, he can go play without getting in trouble.....and seriously, he is
the President and he's doing his job. Some might say it's for a change, too. Doesn't matter. It's getting done...
Can't we at least wait until the crisis has STOPPED GETTING WORSE before going back to political ping pong with verbal hand grenades? How many people
STILL have not heard from people they know inside the disaster zone? (raises paw)... This crap ain't over. Enough.
