Storm-ravaged and weary Rockaways residents cornered Mayor Bloomberg yesterday to angrily demand more aid for their devastated neighborhood.
“When are we gonna get some help?” blasted one desperate woman, who had to be held back by the mayor’s security detail as Bloomberg stood by with a deer-in-the-headlights look.
“When are we gonna get some f--king help?” she demanded.
“There’s old ladies in my building that don’t got nothing,” lashed out a man on video caught by a NY1 reporting crew.
Bloomberg’s trip to the Rockaways wasn’t announced and wouldn’t have been caught on cameras if the news crew hadn’t happened to run across him. Back in City Hall, he expressed sympathy with the residents’ plight.
"Set up large tents. Respite tents to get warm in...use the generators from the marathon. We stayed in tents on the DMZ of N/S Korea while I was in the Marines...served food out of tents etc. Army Corps could have those tents set up in 3-4 hours..."
"i agree about the tents but as you and i both know (having served in germany) without fuel those tents are freezing..there just isnt any fuel left....i drove around for a long time last night and all you see is gas stations closed up. When a station gets a shipment its devoured in a few hours....its beyond bad..its dire "
""overanxious"? What a stupid word to use, when temperatures are dropping. you don't have food or heat! And this clown, wanted to run the marathon!"
"NYC consists of 5 boroughs, not just the Upper East/West Side and Wall Street.
So we have The Fuhrer Obama jet in for a propaganda photo op and hug Christie. Woop-de-dooh! All the congratulating fellow bureaucrats that are doing a "great job", as the teleprompter told Obama to say. Nothing more than words. But that's still more than Bloomberg is doing for Staten Island and Queens.
Here we have our Dear Emperor Bloomberg... confronting a crisis a tad bigger than a soda that exceeds 16 ounces... and we get CHOKING. The man is CHOKING when LEADERSHIP is needed. Always was a blowhard, avuncular rich know-it-all phony nanny state wuss. Rudi cleaned up the Dinkins mess (imagine if he took the 'Obama cop out?) Dealt with 9/11.
Term limit-busting hypocrite Mikie Bllomberg can't lead flatulence on it's way out of his own anus. Sad excuse for a man, sad excuse for a mayor of a city that consist of 5 boroughs of people to serve.
Not just the rich, Mikie."
