Storm-ravaged and weary Rockaways residents cornered Mayor Bloomberg yesterday to angrily demand more aid for their devastated neighborhood.
“When are we gonna get some help?” blasted one desperate woman, who had to be held back by the mayor’s security detail as Bloomberg stood by with a deer-in-the-headlights look.

Is the Red Cross still showing their “looking presidential” campaign ads for Obama? I saw them only one day here in Arizona. Then they just disappeared. Are they still showing them anywhere else? Thanks!
My, my....if Whites were that “in your face” to worthless politicians, maybe this country wouldn’t have sunk so low.
Now that “he has expressed sympathy at their plight”, Im sure everyone feels better..../sarc
The headline should read:
“Devastated Rockaways residents lash out at Obama Supporter Bloomberg during unannounced visit”
And you see there here military cargo plane Janet? Well, when Sequestration hits in January it will be mothballed because we don't need the military. What we need are more Food Stamps, Unemployment checks, and some more TSA agents. By the way, you're doing a heck of a job Janet!
“Sometimes we all get a little bit overanxious, if you will.
Good job, Bloomie.
Run, Rudy, Run!!!
Ahh, Politics! Where a Billionaire pretends to care, and the "F" bomb is supposed to make us sympathetic.
"This here plane will transfer underage Dominican hookers
for our entire Democratic party in Congress."
Bloomie is having a hard time realizing that ABCNNBCBS and the New York Slimes can’t protect lying slimeballs like Obozo, the lesbo in charge of HSA and him by ignoring the news.
With Fox News and the Internet, their days of lying and b$ without severe blowback are over.
Theres old ladies in my building that dont got nothing”
And the media and gov Christie say Obama is doing such a good job. BS this criminal communist obama must be arrested for treason in Benghazi and for destroying our economy and freedom with socialism.
Dang, didn’t recognize him without the nameplate indicating who was sitting in the chair.
Boy How I Wish Someone Had a Camera Phone there to Video this! I Bet Doomberg Was “EXTREMELY ANXIOUS”!!!!
What do you expect from people who have been trained from birth to depend on the government for everything.
Even now, as bad as things are for millions of citizens, they are sharing from their meager pocketbooks to help their fellow citizens by donations and actions.
How much more might have been available had they had jobs, had their President not been more dedicated to a Marxian "taking" and "redistributing," paper money theory than to an American, freedom of individual enterprise, wealth creation idea!
We need to turn away from petty tyrants who call themselves presidents, legislators, governors, and mayors and who see themselves as planners, controllers of personal behavior, and "organizers" of the economy, and dispensers of other people's hard-earned incomes.
Perhaps American liberty is best symbolized by the "Lady in the Harbor," who, by the way, seems to have survived nature's fury, as if to say: "Rediscover and return to the principles and ideas of liberty which made America a refuge for hurting and oppressed peoples from all over the globe!"
Open the floodgates of freedom so that love-motivated private charity can flourish; and as it flourishes, it points the gratitude of recipients to the God who inspires it, not to government.
The lessons from Katrina/Sandy that most people NEVER understand yet we conservatives already knew:
When the SHTF, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN!!
There will be be NO HELP from government, government ‘officials’ are taking care of their OWN families as well as political cronies and LEO will be protecting their OWN families.
You can’t fool anyone ,we know you are mac daddy.
But this is the Era of Entitlement where wealth re-distribution runs rampant!
Hurricane Sandy’s darker side: Looting and other crime
I am in AZ also...hated those ads. Now they have started showing an ad for Salvation Army without obama. Very nice, Salvation Army does a much better job than the Red Cross. (domestically, not sure about internationally)
“dark side”.. looting sneaker shops.. that’s racist
Thanks neighbor. I’m wondering if those Red Cross ads might have hurt their cause more than helped it. With the country where it is right now, I don’t think using Obama as a pitch man was a very good choice. They automatically alienated 50% of their potential donors. Stupid move.
Did NO ONE capture this on video???
Come on, people, learn how to fight.
Better get some free birth control down there, and quick!
Oh, how it must really suck for Bloomie to get caught cold on the street with all those declassees and peasants screaming at him when he definitely is more comfortable with the wealthy NYC salon and art gallery set.
Dennis Miller could have a ball with this whole episode....it's like a skit from a Broadway burlesque show.
I bet those people would vote for Romney once the first Romney buses rolled in with all those relief supplies that the democrats were mocking him for..
Romney is not politicising the storm at all. Obama is out there this morning campaigning on it! I couldn’t believe he was using the storm on the trail to brag about what he’s done. Ugly and unbecoming
Wow! That video is pretty intense.
I’m guessing Bloomie was there for a photo op, and like his mentor, Barry Benghazi, he was not prepared to do anything productive.
From the article:
"Cops yesterday uncovered the body of 90-year-old George Stathis, who was found dead in his home on Beach 121st Street."
Miller has enough material from Bloomy and Barky during this disaster to last him for ten years!
Let Obama do it. It will be to his political demise. He has been all promise and nothing but incompetence delivered. The left will turn on bloomberg and all of them.
Is Bloomberg checking the dumpsters to make sure there are no trans-fats in them?
There is a big difference between this and Katrina. After Katrina people all over the country were taking in refugees. Now nobody can afford it. Plus there’s no room since all those kids 26 years old and under moved back home to get on their parents’ insurance.
SA is who I donated to. There have been too many shenanigans by the Red Cross for me to trust them.
SA is the best, along with Franklin Graham's Samaritans Purse.
So nanny-state Bloomberg gets his own security detail to protect him from the masses, but then tells NYC residents that they don't need guns, just their cell phones to call the police, while the rapist/killer criminal halts his attck to wait for the police to show up in 15-20 min (give or take 10 min). And NYC residents continue to vote for this commie pig bastard? I would love to see his security detail quit en mass, and dump Bloomie in the middle of NYC's worst crime neighborhood, armed with only his cell phone.... I would LOVE to see that.
I don’t think the looting was caught on video, but this is the nursing home in question:
More important, why were the Rockaway nursing homes told NOT to evacuate before the storm?
Obama doesn’t care about these people. He’s got more important things to think about.
Maybe Obozo was using the nursing homes to funnel weapons to Syrian rebels, and he didn't want anybody calling attention to them.
But while I'm here, and as much as I hate it, I have to make a confession: I have a new-found respect for the people of Occupy Wall Street. They were the first into the Rockaways and have setup aid/food stations up and down the peninsula, one in an abandoned firehouse. They're climbing up 17 flights of unlit stairwells in some of the worse public housing projects bring blankets and supplies to the eldery trapped on the upper floors. I wouldn't set foot in those buildings; they either have more guts than I or they are very naive. There are a bunch of Youtube videos about them.
