Resident: "Staten Island is dead... it's been abandoned... Obama and Bloomberg lied to us..."
Fox News Live | 11/9/12 | Boden

Posted on 11/09/2012 7:46:28 AM PST by pabianice

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.

They should thank Mother Nature, for giving them a chance to go green and enjoy big government’s service.

Here's a clue: The election is over. There is no more need for a photo-op.

Where is the MSM? Where are the celebrities bellyaching like Katrina?

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.

The Gulf Coast has been there, done that. The EPA wants to re-establish natural barrier islands. People are not part of “natural”.

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.

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....

Roger that. You GOT WHAT YOU VOTED FOR. As Coach Denny Green says: THEY ARE WHAT WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!!!! Enjoy socialism new York. You wanted life under socialism, this is what life under socialism is like.

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.

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.

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..

Yea, and how many of these victims were squawking the loudest about Bush's mismanagement of Katrina. These folks would all be better off with Bush than Obama but there would never be capable of recognizing that fact. Heck, they don't even know they're a bunch of hypocrites.

Liberalism is a mental illness and evidently its hereditary.

But 60+ percent of the electorate viewed Obama’s “response” positively and it affected their vote. The power of the media and mushy thinking trumps reality. Now, it just won't be covered much anymore and the country will move on, plus Staten Island was, by far, the most conservative part of NYC.

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.

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.

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.

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.
