Mayor Doomberg Puts Marathon Ahead of Starving, Freezing Citizens in Need
Rushlimbaugh.com ^ | November 2, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 11/02/2012 1:00:35 PM PDT by NYer

RUSH: ABC on Good Morning America today actually said they've got a poll, eight out of ten approve of Obama's handling.

Well, I've got some sound bites from people from Staten Island and from Queens. They're not happy up there. In fact, this is gonna get worse -- much worse -- before it gets better, and now they're gonna run the New York marathon. Do you know what Bloomberg's doing? They are kicking refugees, essentially, out of hotels to make room for people coming into town for the marathon.

"Well, we need the money! Oh, yeah, we need the economic benefit of the New York marathon."

Everybody, wherever you go, they're outraged over this decision. How in the world...? When you have people starving, when you have people begging for food and begging for clothes -- they have no place to stay, they've got no heat, it's gonna get cold at night this weekend -- how in the world do you do this? Well, liberalism, folks! I hate to be so simplistic with the answer, but it means something.

And I could really rock the boat if I added something else about what I really think of this marathon business. (interruption) Well, because it's part of the Health Nazi Crowd, and they're all leftists, too. It's all part of the, "You can't have something larger than 16 ounces to drink. You can't eat any trans fat." These are the people on the other side of that that are loved and adored.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Oh, there's a great hashtag on Twitter. Do you know what a hashtag is? (interruption) You don't know what a hashtag is? Well, put your mind to it. You know what a "tag" is? (interruption) Okay, the hashtag is: #LetThemEatMarathons. I'm telling you, going ahead with this marathon in the midst of all this, kicking residents out of hotels to make room for marathoners? There are little children being kicked out! They're bringing two giant generators that could power 400 houses into Central Park to power things for the marathon.

Yeah, and this is all at the behest of Mayor Doomberg.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Oh, wow, folks, it's not as bad as I thought. Not as bad, this marathon business. This afternoon in New York City Mayor Bloomberg held a press conference to update people about the recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy, and he said this about the running of the New York marathon on Sunday.

BLOOMBERG: The Road Runners Club has asked each runner in this weekend's marathon to also contribute $26.20, which is a dollar for each mile of the race, and hopefully some will do a lot more than that. They’re running this race to help New York City and the donations from all of the runners and the clubs are going to be a big relief to our relief efforts.

RUSH: You gotta be kidding.

BLOOMBERG: And if you remember, you go back to 9/11, I think Rudy made the right decision in those days to run the marathon. It pulled people together and we have to find some ways to express ourselves and show our solidarity with each other.

RUSH: There you have it, folks, there you have it. Solidarity with each other, holding hands, working hard with each other. This race is for you. You're in Staten Island, this race is for you. This race is to rebuild New York. The New York marathon to rebuild New York, and how's it gonna happen? Well, every competitor is gonna donate $26.20. You know how they got to that number? That's a dollar a mile. 'Cause the original idiot back in Greece who ran that distance to inform somebody that the bad guys were coming is the only reason we have marathons.

(interruption)

RUSH: A ribbon? Oh, oh, oh, have the runners wear a ribbon. What would you call this ribbon? Hurricane awareness ribbon? Everybody's already aware. There you have it, folks, $26.20 from every marathoner. I'm New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and this race is for you.

People can’t even get to New York to watch the stupid marathon! I hope Bloomberg gets skewered over this, the dumb old ass.

The vast libtard-wing of the demento crats should be put under insanity watch or in jail or at the very least panhandling on the streets for their.
Not in high positions of authority and power where they can influence everyday people’s lives and livelihoods!

Bloomberg! WTH is this man’s problem? Cancel the Marathon, and if he somehow argues to delay election day, screw you For really not caring about people in the disaster zone known as NYC!

Not just Bloomturd is to blame...

Remember when it was Katrina?

Katrina: "Where's Bush?"
Sandy:    "Where's the governor?
                  Where's the mayor?"

Focusing ire on Bloomberg also helps the MSM keep some heat off of Obozo, and also helps to keep Benghazi off the front page.

Laddies and Germs...the USA is on the verge of total catastrophe if we continue to let lunatics like this represent us at any level of government. They need to be institutionalized and not allowed to run free among sane people. Liberalism truly is a mental disease.

To take NY'ers mind off the devastation? Like Rome. They thought bringing sand from other countries rather than food so they could have their Coliseum games - take their minds off the troubles they're having. Whatta maroon.

Reminds me of the part in Titanic where the 60 person lifeboats are used to seat a dozen first class passengers comfortably. Too bad the hurricane wasn’t smoking or eating trans fats or else Bloomberg would’ve asked every branch of the military for help...

I just hope that no sewage lagoons were flooded because they don’t need Bloombergs floating around.

@RealGabagool There is one great thing to come from Hurricane Sandy. You'll never see the term "President Bloomberg". #LetThemEatMarathons @iowahawkblog You know what would be a morale boost for Staten Islanders? Not starving. #LetThemEatMarathons ‏@GOPBriefingRoom #LetThemEatMarathons New Yorkers volunteering as tribute to Bloomberg's Hunger Games so they can get the cups of water given to the runners

Just heard that the marathon begins in Staten Island. Well fed and watered marathoners beginning a race amidst the starving and displaced locals. What a photo op!

Hey, can either of you explain to me how ultra-liberal Bloomberg was able to run on the Republican ticket?! I have never understood that.

Well, the nanny in charge, has finally caved to pressure. Does he plan to send the two truck generators to Staten Island? What about all that bottled water?

Where have you been the last 40 years?

Public unions and agencies are NEVER known for smarts, efficiency and hustle.

You want more than 4 generators?
Overtime!

As someone commented yesterday, if this is how the government handles an emergency, imagine how they will handle someone's request for hip replacement surgery. The goverment is notoriously wasteful and should be the last resort in time of need.
