President Barack Obama vowed Thursday to stick with New Yorkers still struggling 17 days after Superstorm Sandy "until the rebuilding is complete" after getting an up-close look at devastated
neighborhoods rendered unlivable.
Obama brought the spotlight to people still without heat or electricity and hugged many of those trying to rebuild their lives. He also delivered a postelection message of unity, nine days after a closely divided America gave him a second term.
"During difficult times like this, we're reminded that we're bound together and we have to look out for each other," Obama said from a Staten Island street that was demolished by the storm. "And a lot of the things that seem important, the petty differences, melt away."
Obama announced that Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, a former chief of a New York housing agency, will be his point person to oversee long-term redevelopment in the region.

Of course, EVERY sob story out of New Orleans after Katrina was put at the feet of Bush.
Obamugabe is a failure. The pathetic truth is that these people in New York and New Jersey will vote for Obama's party again.
How nice of him to bring a “spotlight” - as if their suffering hasn’t been on full display for weeks now.
They don’t need anymore spotlight.
They need power & heavy equipment.
They need engineers.
They need bulldozers, cranes, and dump trucks.
They need housing.
If we can mobilize equipment like this and send it all over the world - why can’t we do the same for our own citizens?
will vote for Obama’s party again
Indeed. They welcomed him with open arms.
They found a half dozen people with tears in their eyes to talk about how much it meant for them to have Obama come here and hold their hand or tell them he cared.
These people were happy just to touch the hem of his garment.
If anybody bitched about the horrible (non) response of the Federal government (and I surely suspect there were plenty) they did not get by the voluntary gauntlet of Dear Leader's television editors.
wait.. let me guess...
he “will not rest” until everyone is take care of?
Does that mean even when he is golfing?
Ever notice that whenever the photo-op calls for BO to hug someone, he does it as though he’s afraid he’ll catch something? No human warmth at all.
Yep. The local news tv stations are often even MORE biased than the networks.
Journalism is DEAD. PROPAGANDA is alive and well.
Hurricane Sandy. It’s a hurricane.
They aren’t at the rebuilding stage yet, they are still at the recovery stage. But the media doesn;’t have Geraldo standing on a bridge lamenting the poor folks stuck in a stadium.
And Obama pretends that all the complaints are about “rebuilding”, so as to deflect criticism.
Your title uses language that is seen as ever so hip over at DU, it is another way for them to poke a stick in the eye of conservative culture.
I don’t understand what you mean.
Look at your title that you wrote and published, you couldn’t think of a more adult way, a cleaner way of phrasing it?
