To: Personal Responsibility
I am a native Long Islander and went through many hurricanes over the decades with far less damage than this storm. One of the worst events was a freak ice storm that cut a swathe of damage up the middle of the island, back in the late 70s. At the time, I was living in Huntington Station and we went 5 days without power. You're right ... I was able to move in with my grandmother and relished that hot shower and hot food. But, no gas!
Just received a call from the NRC looking for last minute contributions. I told the caller that here in Albany, there are no Romney/Ryan signs anywhere! You would not know there was a presidential race. Now, given the delays downstate in resolving the damage, the frustration of those living through this misery, do you think any of those people would switch their vote to Romney? Just curious to get another New Yorker's opinion.

I think there may be a large number of Staten Islanders who will now pull the R.

I grew up in central Suffolk, lived on LI all my life. I think some people might switch their vote or stay home. I don’t think it’ll be enough to change the state to red though.
