What a run-around!
The city left more than a dozen generators desperately needed by cold and hungry New Yorkers who lost their homes to Hurricane Sandy still stranded in Central Park yesterday.
And thats not all stashed near the finish line of the canceled marathon were 20 heaters, tens of thousands of Mylar space blankets, jackets, 106 crates of apples and peanuts, at least 14 pallets of bottled water and 22 five-gallon jugs of water.
This while people who lost their homes in the Rockaways, Coney Island and Staten Island were freezing and going hungry.

I'm keeping the supplies stashed because we have a shortage of union goons to move them ... if I let the stuff loose, they might be used to help prepare unhealthy 24 ounce soft drinks.
Nagin had school busses, Bloomy had generators.
Truck drivers carrying power transformers turned away. I think they did deliver but it took 3 days to do so.
Bloomberg is, and has, dropped the ball
Those generators can’t be used for the disaster victims; Bloomberg probably has them promised as patronage gifts to different people who he owes favors to.
I'd say that a Class Action Suit ... will happen.
Everyone in the MSM should make a pilgrimage to Texas get on their knees and kiss GW Bush’s A## and beg forgiveness for how they treated him after Katrina. The epic amount of pure fail from the libtards running the City, State and Federal response to this disaster is epic.
Really? But Obama in his (unearned) flight jacket looked so... so... commanding!
I heard all that stuff is privately owned. Bloomberg can’t touch it.
Yes. I agree.
The way Bush was treated was criminal. ALL the blame was put on him.
Here’s how it works. When there’s a disaster, the media looks for the nearest Republican, and then dumps a heap of $hit on him.
Why is anyone surprised.
The school buses were all owned by a private company and by the time anyone figured out they needed them, the buses were already flooded. Probably the generators are privately owned as well. At least the generators aren’t underwater.
Same as with truck crews in Jersey: the loyalty of the union thugs is solely to the union, not to their neighbors, their state or their nation.
The generators, food and water are private property, not city property. Until someone with the owner’s authority authorizes it, the city has no right to take it.
That said, I’m disappointed that the NY Road Runners Club or whoever is owner has not yet offered it.
Like the window washers say, We feel your pane.
Plans are being formulated, formulae being planned, meetings held and holdings met...we’ll get back to you but not quite yet.
Meanwhile, no large sugar drink or public cigarette, your throat is dry, your feet are wet...we’ll get back to you but not quite yet.
If you’d join the union and pay your dues, you’ll get a blanket and dry shoes, you’ll get a heater warm and bright for your vote if it’s right and we’ll have to vett....we’ll get back to you but not quite yet.
Heckuvajob Mr. President!
Where’s that Bud guy photo from Katrina. He needs to be carrying water bottles for Sandy.
