MONUMENTAL INTERVIEW: 'We Run This Country, Not You!'
Fox News ^ | 1/4/2013 | Fox News

Posted on 01/04/2013 4:10:15 PM PST by Jayster

Hurricane Sandy victim Scott McGrath unloaded on President Obama and Washington elites in an interview with Neil Cavuto today on "Your World." Here are some great quotes from Scott McGrath. Full Transcript to follow McGrath: 'This country is in debt. We are so eager to help other countries that we forget our own people.' 'They have to change this and cut out the pork. We can't accept it if it's gonna put us in more debt down the road.' 'A quick fix is not gonna help us....in the long run I don't want to be paying more taxes down the road.' (Obama) 'is a phony, he's a liar. Straight out liar. He said to me face to face he's gonna cut the rep tape. We're two months now no red tapes been cut.' 'There's jobs out there. People have to get off their rear ends and find the jobs and stop taking hand outs.'

Isn’t it interesting that every bad thing that happened after Katrina was the President’s fault, but every bad thing that has happened after Sandy is the fault of the House of Representatives?

I was yelling at the TV going........YEA!!! Say it Scott!!!!

Why don’t we have politicians while being interviewed saying Obama is lying.

Could say that every day that Obama speaks. I don’t know of one time that he has been in front of the camera where he DID NOT lie.

This guy reminds me of me if I was being interviewed.

Tired of PC BS!!! Tired

>>Hurricane Sandy victim Scott McGrath

I was a Hurricane Hugo “victim” in 1989. By the time 2 months had passed, the people of SC had pretty much cleaned up and moved on. There were still a lot of broken buildings, but no one was standing around crying about red tape holding up their gummint handouts.

“’There’s jobs out there. People have to get off their rear ends and find the jobs and stop taking hand outs.’”

I am one of those unemployed people who cannot even get an interview. College educated, decades of experience but haven’t worked for 12 years due to taking care of my dying parents. I am NOT taking any government handouts.

I’m trying the self-employed route, but this economy sucks.

Thank you.

2012 was a really lousy year for my family. As an optimist I like to think there is nowhere to go but up.

Somewhere else on the internet I read that the Obama Administration is gearing up to impose Martial Law this year. They’re just waiting for an excuse.

Martial Law: THAT would make 2013 a really lousy year for many, many of our families.

“Somebody remind me, why do I have to pay to fix his house? Nobody paid to fix mine in the 1971 California earthquake”

Easy explanation: Hurricane Sandy was caused by global warm...climate change, or whatever it’s called this week, and the Saugus quake happened before global whatever was invented. The government should have already raised taxes enough to stop climate whatever but they have not, thus it is the government’s, i.e. the tax payers’ fault his home was damaged by Sandy. We must pay!

Sadly, not enough people watched that interview and many of those that did see it did not get the gist of the conversation.

you know, it's fun watching someone call out obama on his lies, I have to admit.

However, what we have here is a guy going irate about not getting his handouts fast enough... other people's money. He's saying it himself; I want my handout money but cut out the pork... what?

Although I feel bad when I see that happen to someone, why are the taxpayers of America expected to rebuild his house in a zone that will likely get washed away by another hurricane at some point in the future? Same with NO... we should have just filled in the hole and told people to build elsewhere, the location is unsuitable for safe habitation and the taxpayers aren't going to be held accountable for building new homes below sea level on the damn coastline! geez...

Well yes and no.

No because the guy does pay his own money for his flood insurance through FEMA and he's complaining that FEMA is dragging their feet.

But yes, FEMA and the US Government should be out off the flood insurance biz. If somebody can't get flood insurance from a private company then they shouldn't be living in such a flood prone area.

PC MO's are the 'ties that bind'. . .We must free ourselves; or suffer - as we already are - the damning consequences of 'inconsequential' thinking. It is of course; as well; a long-time Leftist/Marxist MO for Change. . . PC should be banned; along with the Liberalism that holds to it.

Perhaps a 'Public Awareness Campaign'. . .

At least we already know his price. A government handout to fix his house.

Of course when he gets to Washington and meets all the lobbyists his price will go up. They ALL have a price.

Many from the Northeast went down South and donated to help out with Katrina. Sucks to hear the shallow disregard for those now struggling to replace their homes destroyed by Sandy.

Not the government's role to replace anything . give the gov more responsibility then you give them more power. People should have insurance take care of themselves. I was here for Katrina in New Orleans. Saw the politicians and other pos steal hundreds of billions from the rest of America. I didn't ask for a damn thing as I hate the gov and don't want to deal with it and I'm still fine you know. Every problem I've ever had in the world was caused by government and the media. I succeed for now in spite of government not because of it. We don't need the gov for anything other than military, border control, international issues.

Although we were spared the brunt of the storm in the Cape May and Wildwood communities, I can tell you many of us at the Jersey shore pay their own way through private insurance. I have a modest home and pay $1500/year just for flood insurance. I don't understand why FEMA gets involved at all. If you can't afford the insurance, then you can't afford the home - sell it.

Same excercise after the flood in Iowa. People simply cleaned up and repaired and moved on. Big difference between the doers and achievers and the parasitic demrats. I have several relatives in the Greenville area and out state. Good people. My two Uncles once had a cardboard business there with KFC as their largest client.

Well, we heard all over the press that help was on the way, FEMA was moving in at the gallop, zillions of people and FEMA trailers .... well, maybe not FEMA trailers, but living assistance, anyway, so nobody had to live in a cold, structurally-unsound house -- at least that's what we heard over the bassoons and French horns of the MSM hailing Obama's magnificence and his munificent visit to the Jersey Shore to distribute money, money, money to the slurping Joizy governor.

It was being handled. Don't you remember?

When a guy pays for home insurance and federal flood insurance is it asking too much that he be able to collect in a reasonable time? I had minimal Sandy damage. Actually most was caused by the follow on nor’easter, but my insurance company covered my losses within two weeks. I don’t consider that as receiving a handout. Rugged individualism is fine but if taxpayers from NY, Pa. Mi. Etc. had
not ponied up the bucks for Hoover Dam, Phoenix and San Diego would still be one horse towns. This argument has gone on since 1789 when Hamilton and Jefferson dueled and it has never been settled. One thing is certain. Neither extreme side in that argument is good for the nation and the People.

I don’t see anything in this thread about denying homeowners reimbursement for their insured losses. Taking tax payer money and giving it to those who refused to buy insurance - that’s a different story.

Some blogs cannot be mentioned on Jim Robinson’s Free Republic. I respect his limits. Some do not, but I do.

That doesn’t mean the information there on the unmentionable blogs isn’t accurate, because the blogs I go to aren’t gossipy.

The tip about Martial Law came from someone working in Law Enforcement in a deep South state. He, and others in Homeland Security, aren’t liking what they’re seeing from this administration.

I combined his interview with other information picked up from varying sources over the past two months, and the picture forming of this administrations plans is alarming.

You don’t like what I write, that’s your choice.

Back in 2008 I was warning folks about BHO2. Few heeded the information. Now, I can only hope people pay attention.

The 9 billion that 67 conservatives voted against was to give the authorization to borrow to allow FEMA to pay the benefits to those who had federal flood policies. It is also a fact that those representatives present in ‘05 voted to assist the Gulf states after Katrina. But I guess since they’re from NY or NJ it’s acceptable to label these victims as moochers and freeloaders. They are not the rugged Amricans who inhabit flyover country. Butyou might investigate the work of the Catholic Charities, Salvation Army and hundreds of other private groups and 10,000s of individals who’ve worked constantly to alleviate the suffering. Even the rugged individualists here would have to admit that those marxist NYers and Jerseyans did quite a lot for each other.

I can't imagine how frustrating and sad it must be for those people who were victims of Sandy, but the problem is, as you state FEMA has to "BORROW" the money to pay promises the Gov't made when the Gov't didn't have the $$$ in the first place to make those promises. You see, the gov't FORCE private insurance companies to back their claims not only 100% but 300%, however the gov't does not have to adhere to their own asinine rules they require private insurers, which is ludicrous!

Vermont had a little hurricane up here a year ago named Irene which wiped out homes and half the Rural Route roads in the state and people are still bitching about not getting gov't assistance to rebuild. This was over a year ago, where's Vt's baby mama?

The bill that 67 conservatives voted against included FEMA money for all disasters last year - not just you folks in NY. No problem with that. The problem was the bill was loaded with pork and paybacks to special interests e.g., millions to fix uninsured losses, cars for homeland security, 150 million for the fishing industry, and even money to put a new roof on the Smithsonian.

You may want to believe they voted against the bill to make New Yorkers suffer but that’s not the case. The bill was an attempt to funnel money to special interests under the guise of disaster aid to those with federal flood insurance.

The president got 63% of the vote in NY and 58% in NJ. I doubt seriously they’re that upset with him. With all due respect to the victims of Sandy, I’m so damn sick of know-it-all libs from debt-ridden, leftist destroyed, economic craphole northeastern states like NY and NJ. Long before Sandy these people created an economic hurricane by adhering to a liberal ideology and continuing to elect one tax and spend buffoon after another to elected office. The next time I hear another whiny New Yorker spout about how conservatism is bad for the country I’ll remember the real ignoramuses in this country reside in cities like New York City, Albany, Trenton, and Jersey City.
