While the east coast cries, Obama smiles and campaigns:

And people dumpster-dive for food:

Whilst these things occur simultaneously:

This and this and this and this and this and this.

Obama couldn’t care less about the plight of the east coast, the damage in NYC and in New Jersey.

He hasn’t the capability.

Again: if it doesn’t benefit Obama, he’s not much interested.

Just another disaster.  It won’t garner him votes.  So screw it; all those people are on their own.

Your loving Demorats & Leftists at work again: “MSNBC Ridicules Romney for Collecting Food and Supplies for Hurricane Sandy Victims”

From NewsBusters.org:

This one is really hard to believe, even for the most biased so-called “news network” in the nation.

MSNBC on Tuesday totally trashed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for collecting food and supplies at a storm rally event in Ohio to be sent to victims of Hurricane Sandy (video follows with transcript and commentary):

But here’s the best part:

Host Martin Bashir said, “Mayor Reed, so the Red Cross knows what it’s doing. Did he, did you detect perhaps a subtle dig there on Mr. Romney who spent today going against the guidelines established by the Red Cross and holding a campaign rally in Ohio that was dressed up like a charity drive collecting food and other supplies when the Red Cross expressly asked people not to do that?”

And isn’t that just like Leftists to support the Red Cross and its One Way Grip on “how things ought to be” in an emergency?  The Red Cross SAYS you, as an individual, cannot gather food and clothing and begin organizing yourself.

That’s one reason I don’t contribute to the Red Cross.  This is another.

Just as with elitist views of Demorats and Leftists, only they know what’s best for you.  Only they know how to do things properly.  Only they believe in themselves and the power of the government.  They do not believe in relief at a lower level, at citizens helping themselves (as those in Ohio did, in re Mr Romney).

America, aren’t you tired of all this elitist Demorat “I know better than you” pap?

That Mr Romney: Evil Incarnate for attempting to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

New York Times: “A Big Storm Requires Big Government”

God bless the New York Times.  They are nothing if not water-carriers for Mr Obama, Demorats and Leftists.

You gotta love that line above: “A Big Storm Requires Big Government:”

Most Americans have never heard of the National Response Coordination Center, but they’re lucky it exists on days of lethal winds and flood tides. The center is the war room of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, where officials gather to decide where rescuers should go, where drinking water should be shipped, and how to assist hospitals that have to evacuate.

For the brain-addled amongst you and/or the potential Leftists or ignorant citizens who may occasionally cruise by:

The United States government, FEMA and all its ilk, are NOT FIRST RESPONDERS.

Let me make this abundantly clear for those of you who may just have tuned in: the United States government, FEMA and all its variants, are NOT nor were they EVER DESIGNED to be FIRST RESPONDERS.

The role of the federal government is to coordinate mutual aid, have unaffected states come in for assistance.  But this is an after-crisis response that may not — likely won’t be — even be fully realized as the critical incident is occurring.

There are many fewer individuals in federal government service than there are at various local levels, to include your state, regional, city and county emergency responders.

Some blockhead with a blue FEMA coat is NOT going to be wading into floodwaters to remove your dog from your roof.

They will be, however, losing supplies, disallowing trucks full of food and water from other states — assembled by loose-knit organizations of civilians — into emergency areas (because they didn’t do it themselves) and generally slowing down progress.  That’s what government does.  That’s what a painters union or a carpenters union does.  The US government is no different.  If it’s not their idea and if they can’t do it, no one else will.

And here’s the newest excellent example, courtesy of the White House:

FEMA, W.H. send storm victims to Internet

Really??

Let’s just bloat up the federal government further, shall we?  Sandy is as good an excuse as any!
