If Obama did a good job on Sandy - as Chris Christie portraited him - why is that the people're calling Fox News yelling and screaming for help?

People at Staten Island still don't have power, water, etc. and they have young children at home.

    Umm..Wheres the option that says, "Hurricanes are big and no matter what you do, a lot of people are going to have their day ruined?"

    FEMA and the Government will never, no matter how well they respond, be able to prevent every single bad outcome from a storm the size of Sandy. It's just not possible. They can at best minimize the damage and get infrastructure back up and running more quickly. Which they did, and props to people on BOTH sides of the aisle for doing so.

    Also, there's a pretty big hint in the, 'Fox News". How many of those callers do you think blame Obama for creating the hurricane, and are angry that a record breaking storm that we probably havn't seen the likes of since '39 has left them unable to charge there cell phones for a few days? Expecting complete avoidance of all damage is just asanine. This is a raw force of nature here. Damage was minimized, responded to quickly, and the people effected have been kept fed, clothed, and sheltered. The alternative? Good luck surviving in New York if you need something to survive , and can't help someone turn a profit in getting it.

    I so agree! I've always felt like in the wake of a natural disaster I'm on my own. But they would NEVER put me in the concentration camps because I wouldn't live like that. And don't any of those who are homeless have relatives who could take them in temporarily..........

    (CHUCKLE) Don't bother. At the point where it's a question because ONE media source got people calling in to complain because the president can't prevent all damage all the time,.. you just need to realize that he could walk on water and they'd still be screaming that it's because he can't swim.

    So here we go,.. 4 more years of the weak whining about what Obama puts on his sandwich, what Obama wears to bed,.. if he goes home on Friday LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, they will call Saturday and Sunday a Vacation,.. TSK.

    It's sad, because I WANT a reasonable Republican party advocating rational spending reductions and being leery of taxes against anyone. I want a proverbial wet blanket keeping my perspective down to earth, and challenging me at every opportunity. It's unfortunate they the only rational opposition I can find is (Usually) from fellow Democrats playing devils advocate. That's not the kind of discourse that will test my opinions and ultimately bring us forward.

    This is exactly what the other people here says - he arrived for the photo op. No help from him.. Just show off for the elections.
    It infuriates me that Christie praised him, made him a "good work" image for doing nothing...

    Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon

    "The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president."

    The problem is very simple you have a delusional belief that government is benevolent when it is not, ambivalent at best and malevolent in most cases. Gov. Cuomo yells at the power companies because they ran out of poles. It takes 6 months to make a pole, why because of EPA regulations, why because you can't use Cresote but copper products but if they leak solution there is a fine and cleanup charge to the power company which is hefty courtesy of the same EPA. So we have a Liberal Democratic Governor yelling at a power company which is following Liberal Democratic EPA regulations instead of yelling at Washington waive the damn regs to save my people but earthworms are more important. I learned those regs from a power company employee when they had to install a new pole about 7 years ago on my land. Wonderful place America.

    Yeah, that really ticked me off. I work in EMS. When natural disasters occur, we don't close. That's when we're needed the most. We work, we adapt, we find a way to do our jobs and help people.
    What if you called 911 and received a recording that stated that the board was closed "due to weather"?
    Then again, we're crazy. When people are screaming and stuff is on fire we run TOWARDS the problem.

    Thank you. FEMA is a perfect example of a great idea ruined by the government. Before they so much as turned a wheel toward the site they should have been in contact with someone there and gotten some intel regarding the scope of need.
    They should have been mobilized within a couple of hours loaded with temporary shelters, generators, etc.
    They take too long, they don't bring adequate supplies, and they don't bring the personnel needed to cope with the situation.
    In short, too many butts in chairs pushing paper, not enough boots on the ground assisting.

    Fox even got a call from a FEMA employee begging them to get word to the state or federal government that they needed help.

    Still waiting for NFM (not Fox media) to hold Obama to the same standard to which they held Bush in Katrina.
