Skip to comments.FEMA Out of Water, No Delivery Until Monday
Posted on 11/03/2012 11:03:16 AM PDT by blueyon
FEMA's vaunted "lean forward" strategy that called for advanced staging of supplies for emergency distribution failed to live up to its billing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
In fact, the agency appears to have been completely unprepared to distribute bottled water to Hurricane Sandy victims when the storm hit this Monday. In contrast to its stated policy, FEMA failed to have any meaningful supplies of bottled water -- or any other supplies, for that matter -- stored in nearby facilities as it had proclaimed it would on its website. This was the case despite several days advance warning of the impending storm.

If Dubya was still in the White House, the commie pig rabble in this country would be on their way to Washington to lynch him.
Monday? A water line from CT could be installed before Monday!
Quick...send the MSM into the minority hoods and cover the story. Where is Geraldo Rivera?
Hey Fatso Christie, what do you think of your butt boy now?
Stupid FEMA. There has to be another four words that better fits their acronym. ;)
Tell Mayor Doomberg to send all that water in Central park for the now canceled Marathon on over to FEMA.
Sounds like it’s time to go looking for the cronies benefitting from these Potemkin FEMA warehouses, imho.
Let Wal-Mart handle the logistics like Bush did. This wouldn’t happen.
water water everywhere and not a drop to drink
Christy is all talk and no go. He gave up to the unions.
Hell be a Rat within the next two years.
I recommend you add some rubbing alcohol to your wamp water and then strain it through a loaf of bread!
Boy, I’ll bet those celebrities will really nail Obama at their upcoming benefit concert for his poor handling of this mess. /s
Failed Effort to Manage Anything?
Heck, let North Carolina Baptist volunteers handle it, they had emergency food service operations capable of serving 80,000 and potable water, as well as facilities for hot showers and laundry there by Wednesday.
When some catastrophe happens overseas, we’re shipping plane loaders of food and bottled water almost the next day, but we can’t do it for our own people?
Obamas FEMA. Is a mirror of him...massive FAIL.
But, he didn’t waste anytime getting his photo op with doughboy Christie.
Style over substance is the liberal way, always.
Boy Christy should has made his name mud among conservatives and in the GOP hasn’t he. Will we get an Ann Coulter repudiation column after the election?
FEMA: A big fat bloated inneficient government bureaucracy that sits around doing nothing until they are needed, and then they do nothing.
This is what happens when you elect the third-string Junior High football team ( the Obama administration) into the NFL.
“Heckuva job, Fugie!”
These guys are useless idiots.There’s plenty of water here in the Cleveland area and it takes about 10 hours for a tanker truck to drive from here to NYC.
There’s tons of good bottled water in thousands of stores and warehouses throughout North America (since so many people prefer to buy it for $2 a bottle rather than just drink tap water, which is also available in abundance). An administration which can’t deliver some drinking water to citizens in distress (while its President flies off in our Air Force One to shake even more campaign contribution money out of his rich “fat cat” comrades) is not only incompetent, its thoroughly disgusting!
Maybe Obama can get the beer cart girls from those golf courses he’s always at to deliver some water.
And this is the Gub’mint that wants to control your access to healthcare NYC, take a good long look at the future.
Meanwhile, the muzzie kenyan, could care less, he’s busy campaigning.
Have no fear. The Government is here to help.
I said last night that Trump ought to come out and say, “Give me 30 days and all will be back to normal.” I think he could do it.
Sheesh. There’s water everywhere there. Boil it.
Don’t forget Shepard Smith. They can go out there and get in another competition to see who can report the most ridiculous rumors again.
Didn’t matter that when the national guard swept through there were no dead bodies in the dome and most of the rumors were just that. That part wasn’t newsworthy.
And it would be flooding into the NY metro area, were it economically feasible for the stores and warehouses to ship it there, but "anti-gouging" price caps prevent it from being so.
With the resources this nation has????
Get this worthless community organizer out of the White House; what a utter disgrace.
The Obama people were going to “shove this hurricane up Romney’s rear end” if I remember the quote correctly.
Looks like instead; they don’t know how to wipe their own.
"As CNN/ABC/CBS/NBC have noted, this is George Bush's fault."
No chance. The requisite environmental impact study alone could take as many as five years.
Heck, just bid it out to Walmart. They’ll have all the water they need by eod today.
“Ms. Wright was unable to say when or how the water would be delivered from the distribution center to needy Hurricane Sandy victims in New Jersey, Staten Island, Long Island, and other boroughs of New York City. Vendors “are currently being evaluated,” she said, and when the vendors are announced, they will provide information on how local distribution will occur.”
Have no fear, thirsty citizens, “vendors are being evaluated”. No doubt the whole process will be completed with a week or two and then distribution can begin.
Kafka couldn’t dream this stuff up.
A leader should represent himself or herself from the inside out. If one does not exhibit self respect in all areas of one’s life he/she cannot lead people, cities and countries to their true potential.
Christie would serve himself better and New Jersey better by exhibiting greater self respect through improving his physical appearance and, at the same time, most probably his health.
Perhaps extending the election won’t be such a bad thing, if the situation continues to deteriorate, that certainly can’t help the Kenyan.
It’s probably the main reason that Romney didn’t give him the VP slot, and Christie wanted to exact his revenge on Romney by giving Obama the wet sloppy kisses.
Will we get an Ann Coulter repudiation column after the election?
Fat chance of that happening (pun intended).
What about one tanker full of potable water and another with about 10,000 one gallon plastic bottles to hand out to the people, who could then fill them from fawcets attached to the tanker??
FEMA is total FAIL
I read yesterday that only 4 of 400 generators had been deployed.
Someone put the military in charge before people start dying.
WHERE IS FEMA?
Oh, wait...Obama is POTUS....never mind.
If 600,000 persons don't have potable water and no means to drive to get some, that is a four day supply.
Let us never forget that Mitt was excoriated by the MSM for collecting goods for this disaster...
FEMA was begun under President Carter!!!!
In 2008 the annual FEMA budget was $6 billion - have no idea what it is now.
Not clear how many permanent Federal employees work in this agency - or what they do when there are no natural or man-made disasters.
Sorta, kinda like a mirage.
