Staten Island resident William Boden interviewed by phone. Staten Island has been abandoned. No electricity, no gas, no heat. People without shelter, clothing, food, water. Staten Island is gone and will never come back. Obama and Bloomberg lied to us. Red Cross absent. Promised FEMA aid absent. No aid of any kind. People lost all personal possessions in flooded, wrecked houses.
Elections Have Consequences
It’s been more than a week, the media has stopped paying attention.
They should thank Mother Nature, for giving them a chance to go green and enjoy big government’s service.
Obama hates White People.
New York GET USED TO IT! Its the new normal!
Where is the MSM? Where are the celebrities bellyaching like Katrina?
Before the next 4 years are up we will all be in the same boat.
Still voted for Obama though, didn’t they?
So let them wait for Obama to save them.
Isn’t Staten Island, you know, TOO WHITE to qualify for help? They’re lucky O doesn’t take what little they DO have left and ship it inland.
Ubama will save them.
The Gulf Coast has been there, done that. The EPA wants to re-establish natural barrier islands. People are not part of “natural”.
...”Elections Have Consequences”....
Exactly! Obama voters getting a little karmic payback.
Hey! Look at the bright side! Your carbon footprint is now very small. You’re saving the planet!!
Staten Island is probably the most Republican part of NY. Guy Molinari is the borough president. They were most likely not a bastio of support for obama. That’s why they’re suffering now.
I would take this with a grain of salt. I know someone who lives on Staten Island, and he told me (2 days after the storm) that he never lost power.
bastio should be bastion.
Sucks to be you. Here’s an Obamaphone.
I’ll bet these people voted 90% demonrat.
I say, “Screw Them!”.
Schadenfreude is such a warm and good feeling.
I’m having a tough time trying to feel sorry for them. So I won’t.
They can kiss their Obamaass goodbye.
Correct if I’m wrong but it appears to me that Staten island is Richmond County. The vote was close but that county ended up blue.
Fool Staten island voters once shame on you. Fool them twice....
Many years ago, when stationed in West Germany, I had a tour on the East-West border. I used to stand and look over into East Germany with my eyeglasses and see what life was all about. They were in rags. Dirt poor. Using tractors from the 1930s to plow their fields or using HORSES!!! They were in abject poverty. The West had it high on the hog. I knew what communism was and did to people. I hope those who wanted this crap are happy. We are going to become East Germany. Secret police, gulags, missing people in the middle of the night as the secret police drag them away screaming and people keeping quiet so they won't be next. Yup. Enjoy communism folks. THIS is what it is like. The biggies have theirs and everyone else has nothing. Its coming. Full speed ahead.
That’s what you get for depending on the government and the system to protect and provide for you.
But you’ll run out and vote for them again...because they’ll convince you that they were not able to help because they are not big enough, they are not powerful enough, they are not taking enough of our hard-earned money, and because conservatives want you to suffer.
Hold on a couple more days...Sean Penn will swoop in and save you!
In all seriousness, not everyone in NY voted for the sasquatch-shagger. I hope they are able to put their lives back together soon...of course I mean the ones who DIDN’T vote for O. The rest can eat sh!t.
“Obama and Bloomberg lied to us”
GEE, YA THINK!?
Too late, you voted for em you deal with it, sucks being you and I ain’t got no sympathy for ya..........burn your obama phone, that should warm ya up or maybe a group hug with that POS chris christie. Good luck with all that.
If anyone wants to know how i really feel please let me know......
Hey NY’ers, talk to Obama. Its not my problem.
...and a solar panel.
I am truly very sorry for those caught up in Sandy’s wrath ... But a lesson to Liberals in America - especially NY and NJ... When you have a Democrat Liberal / Leftist U.S. and State Governments - and Catastrophe hits and destroys your everything -— You have NO LEVERAGE with the U.S. News Media to bring pressure on the Government .. People get help from Republican Governments and massive help is assured because it becomes a field day for the Leftist News Media to bash Republicans - Simple Lessons folks..
Liberalism is a mental illness and evidently its hereditary.
You like many others have lived out your usefullness to the Dear Leader. You are expected not to complain while resources are diverted for other purposes......Good Day citizen and thank you for voting for Obama.
Right. But it will have to wait. Obama is having himself a good cry right now...
I have a friend who fared just as well, but has another family staying with them because they lost everything. My brother lives in Brooklyn, and had power restored in a couple of days, but also has friends from Staten Island who lost everything staying with him.
I am trying to feel bad.... but it’s not working.
All they have to do is call their Obama boy, he said he wouldn’t leave anyone behind.
I was going to say “typical white person” but your remark is better.
Really, it’s frightening when you think about it.
We could have massive natural disasters, record-setting unemployment, and widespread violence wreaking havoc around the world, but if the MSM tells us all is sunshine and roses, more than half the country would believe them.
I don’t depend on the govt to take care of me.
Oh yes, no question, there are a lot of people hurting on Staten Island, but it’s wrong to portray the entire island as a wasteland.
If any residents that voted R need a wood and coal fired warm meal or drink then they are welcome here in WV. My faith is in the power company and coal fired generators to restore modern life down here.
Government agencies are best at taking money from us workers, not helping those that really need it.
I remember an article about Cuba... the writer saw a farmer plowing a field with an ox... the plow was tied to its horns... didn’t even have a yoke
If only Fox is reporting this then it isn’t news. Staten Island should be given back to nature and the Indians..just a couple casino’s and hotels and nature. It would be beautiful.
We have a friend with lots of family in the Rockaways. They have gotten zero help also.
Nobody wants to say it, but I will... They are not black. Not good TV.
how is that “hope and change” working for you??
