Mayor Bloombergs Response to Sandy Leaves Many New Yorkers Out in the Cold
The mayor has brilliantly stage-managed his handling of the storm, but outside the citys affluent precincts numerous angry residents feel abandoned by his administration as days have passed and help has remained distant, writes Harry Siegel.
Are you from OEM? Or FEMA?
No, were from Brooklyn.
That was the exchange when, after nearly six hours, the volunteer group I spent Sunday with finally managed to deliver supplies flashlights, blankets, winter jackets, baby supplies, and pet foodto Staten Islanders whod been rocked by Hurricane Sandy.
On television, New York City is resiliently recovering from SandyBillionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg even fought hard against canceling the ING marathon, giving in only when its sponsors caved. The mayor has maximized his television time with frequent updates in carefully staged settings, with members of the Obama administration standing behind him and his hypnotic sign-language interpreter Lydia Callis beside him. It's a swell sales job, part of his business-friendly, socially-liberal, post-partisan persona, that (with the help of his vast media empire), has helped him maintain his national reputation even as New Yorkers have soured on him.
But his one unscripted moment was far more telling: an unannounced trip to the devastated Rockaways on Saturday that happened to be caught by a camera crew with local news stations NY1. A local woman, part of a furious crowd of people who felt abandoned by the city, was held back by the mayors security detail, as she yelled at him: Wheres the help? Wheres the f*cking help?
Outside of the citys affluent precincts, New Yorkers have felt abandoned by the ultra-mayor whos deemed New York a luxury product as days have passed and help has remained distant.

6:06AM EDT November 2. 2012 - He may have discouraged a post-storm presidential visit this week, but New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorsed President Obama for re-election Thursday.
- Yep ... one helluva job, Bloomy.
I fail to see how Sandy helped Obama.
When are people going to realize that Federal FEMA is just a paper pushing money tree.
>> I fail to see how Sandy helped Obama.
NY, NJ, Delaware, and Vermont now “lean Obama”.
Bloomturd is too busy worrying about the eating, drinking and smoking habits of others instead of PLANNING what needs to happen in case of ANOTHER disaster.
What a dipshit. Oh well, New York deserves his sorry ass. They voted for him.
He has his priority right, he’s in a nice warm multi room mansion, Those idiots in NYC voted him in for 11years...ain’t no cure for stupid...Don’t have a lot of sympathy for them either, except for the babies...
Is there a person on this forum that believes that Michael Bloomberg is a Republican?
He is more concerned about what soda they are drinking and how much than taking care of the people in his city. The marathon was cancelled and the generators still sit in Central Park.
Who didn’t think he’d endorse Barry O? He’d do a Pepsi commercial before he’d endorse Romney!
I’m in the cold fng dark in NYC. Fu Obama Christie Bloomberg.
Only one doing anything is cuomo. Believe it or not cuomo is the only adult left.
Nagin in white face...............
Sorry New Yorkers, Obama is busy with promoting his own agenda right now, so fend for yourselves! You can freeze, starve, go without water and all you will get from him is a press/photo op. Don’t feel too bad though.... our American heros thought he would send in help too, he never did!!! REMEMBER BENGHAZI
I’m sitting here in the cold dark and Christie bloomie and ghettobama can all f themselves. Sorry , I’m tied of this already.
On the bright side, the victims don’t have to worry about someone bringing them smokes or a large, hard to handle, big gulp.
Hope you are aware that IBEW is keeping independents from Helping you all!! People from right to work states have been turned back, electrical crews and 4 trucks from MI with transformers!!
You people are getting effed by your own unions!!
“Im sitting here in the cold dark and Christie bloomie and ghettobama can all f themselves. Sorry , Im tied of this already.”
I truly am so sorry and hopefully tomorrow will be better. God bless you.
OMG, it really IS Armaggedon!!!!!!
I only care about tommorow. Getting rid of Obama is more important than my comfort level.
I’m sorry. This is so messed up. I can’t believe the images I see on the news....
Trust me I know.
Cuomo is the adult in the room right now. Yes I know. But it’s true.
Bloony should be pressured to going to Staten Island and physically working to help people. He lives in warmth and compfort and makes stupid decisions!
Thankfully, Blommy no longer claims to be Republican.
Do not think for a moment that I voted for his sorry @ss once, let alone 3 times. I warned all my friends the very first time I heard his voice that it was just like the voice of a robot, and reflected that this man had no human feelings. Boy, did I nail it!
Unfortunately, he paid off the thoroughly corrupt City Council and got his illegal third term from them.
It will take a generation to undo the damage to the City school system that this piece of excrement has done.
Dear God. Well, FEMA is useless.
“Is there a person on this forum that believes that Michael Bloomberg is a Republican?”
I couldn’t tell you if he’s a Republican or not. But I know he’s no conservative.
I live here. Cuomo is making Christie Creme bloomie and thugbama look like pikers.
He is a liberal democrat dweeb from the blue collar town of Malden MA (now all illegals) who likely “checked the box” to get where he is.
Bloomberg, like OBlamey is a freakin fraud!
How do you have internet?
I know; I'm so sorry about the mess. FEMA came to help after the Northridge Earthquake - they are useless, unless you'd like to listen to them swap war stories.
Posting from iPhone w battery pack. I bought this thing called the isound 15000 I think on amazon. It was the best 79 dollars spent. Get 10 charges on my phone on one charge.
Should be mandatory Prepper gear.
Well, now, that’s the spirit of ‘76!
We went through this last year with Hurricane Lee.
Sending prayers your way FRiend.
Hopefully tomorrow’s election results will lift your spirits.
Awesome, Spread the news glock..in touch with all of my LI friends, they now now the truth! To the rest of you stop posting graphics! It’s a waste of bandwith FGS!
I would go through this x 25 if it means getting rid of Obama
Getting rid of Obama supercedes any misery I am in. FUBO!
Btw - this isound battery pack has been amazing.
Win or lose tomorrow, obama is not sending help. If he wins, he won’t need to. If he loses he won’t care. Plus he’ll get revenge. But true charity organizations are coming.
Question: If someone wanted to rent a U-Haul and take some food, could they make it to where they need to be?
As a New Englander who has lived with this crap forever, I will go get a couple tomorrow if you want to PM me with your address, I’ll send you some! Beats Red Cross and FEMA any day!
Bloomers is not all that into human life. He’s a globalist, control freak watermelon. As many of his globalist pals do, he looks at people like cattle.
He is the mayor of NYC because he loves power, fame and wealth. He’s not there because he respects the herd’s dignity and rights.
W and w wants me to battle this out in public, so I shall.
Sent a private email message to inform him/her that the graphics waste bandwith for people who are power limited like my friends in LI and you, Glock.
So here’s my public reply..
I hope that when you have a disaster, may it be soon, that the heartless don’;t tell you to go eff off... but I shall.
The media fryed Bush on katrina when we know it was Nagan and the governor but the media will never fry Obama for sandy, he’s allowed to show up for a photo op and jet off to campaign with no repercussions meanwhile douchberg sits in his castle on the hill like most of the progressive elitists do dictate orders and endorse his socialist buddy Obama. Wouldnt it be nice if NY turned red on election night becuase of this
WTF does Obama care? NY and NJ are going Rat as they always do. He doesn’t need to buy their votes.
I would love a red NY. NYC out votes the rest of the state along with cities.......like Ithaca.
