Mayor Michael Bloomberg turned the National Guard away from Brooklyn because they were carrying guns. NewsBusters reported, via FOX Nation:
Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitzs impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn arguing that approving the Beeps request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.
We dont need it, Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the citys ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.
Markowitz demanded the National Guards help just an hour before Bloombergs press conference, claiming that the NYPD and FDNY are brave but overwhelmed by all the challenges Sandy brought when it visited the borough on Monday night: flooding, power outages, and looting.
“That man is a D-I-C-K dick”.
Mafia told the Mayor to keep the armed competition out!
It could interfere with their ability to skim 20% off of all of the relief effort.
If he cannot personally micromanage it, Bloomberg is against it. He knows he cannot order the Guard around and tell them what to do, and the very thought of it drives him crazy.
incompetent asshole....how does a fool like this get elected.....
this jack ass is worried about the size of sodas??????
can you say total asshole.
Hizzonor probably has nightmares since he watched Marjoe Gortner go nuts in Earthquake.
The Army and Air National Guard are under the command of a state’s Governor or the President of the United States,never the mayor of a city or town.How can Bloomberg refuse them deployment in Brooklyn?
Meanwhile Penn Station has soldiers with machine guns.
I was about to write.a post calling for New Yorkers to recall this complete goddamned idiot but on second thought I thin they sort of deserve him. He’s a pretty fair representative of the typical New York City resident.
Hell, even his own team thinks he’s a dumb ass.
His plan to hole the marathon anyway was about as brain dead as it gets.
Is this the same mayor that when a disgruntled ex employee shot his former boss and the nypd shot all bystanders except for the suspect,
He said they shot everyone because they had to?
Bloomberg made a good call. Why bother protecting that city.
Sending the national guard to NYC is a waste of good services. The national guard deserves better.
I've seen the National Guard in subway stations in Manhattan and the object they were carrying looked surprisingly like an M-16.I guess the folks in Brooklyn are more easily spooked.
The people of NY need to tar and feather him.
“Face-palming is no way to go through life boy” the giant rooster said “Sometimes ya just gotta slap them”
Imagine the world knows now he is nuts. All the money but lacks common sense, judgement, a workable brain. Things his billions can’t buy.
It would seem to me that is the Governor’s call, as the Chief Executive of the state.
That’s the problem, Bloomberg doesn’t recognize his proper role as a public servant.
He’d prefer to be the little dick-tater that he thinks he is.
I kind of doubt they had ammo anyway. Does anyone know?
The rest of the states are watching total incompetence! From the top down!!
I’d get out of that state ASAP!
This is enough for the people of the state to ask for some resignations NOW!
Isn’t the National Guard under the nominal command of the governor? And if that is the case, could he tell Bloomberg to kindly shut his trap?
If someone dies the Attorney General of New York should charge Bloomberg for negligent homicide.
Bllomberg needs a cell. Padded is optional.
So then if it's the governor's call, then it is the governor, in this case Gov. Cuomo who hasn't brought in the Guard.
What is it about liberals turning away help during a natural disaster?
Well, isn’t it kinda like the USSR? Remember that submarine that had trouble, and the US could have helped? They let them die rather than be rescued by USA.
Bloomberg is living proof that Liberalism is a mental disorder. Anyone who voted for him deserves him! Please....stop the westward migration of NY libs..we have enough lefty-nuts out here.
Remember Arnold Schwarzenegger saying he was drunk on the power he had in office?
At least Arnold was being honest about his power trip.
When are we going to quit blaming Bloomberg and start blaming the people that voted for him?
Hed prefer to be the little dick-tater that he thinks he is.
