Remember this photo after Hurricane Sandy? Barack Obama promised this New Jersey woman that relief would be coming; and coming soon. “No bureaucracy. No red tape,” he said. Amazingly, three months later, many residents are still without heat.
Arctic air gripped parts of the United States on Thursday, making life miserable for people still without heat months after superstorm Sandy and turning steam from a nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania into a snowfall substantial enough to shovel.
In Brooklyn, New York, where about 200 homes slammed by Sandy in October remained without heat, “It’s just getting colder and colder,” said Doreen Greenwood-Garson, chief of the Gerritsen Beach Fire Department.
The volunteer department has loaded its ambulance with donated space heaters and free hot meals and delivered them to shut-ins. Already it has given away a total of 60 space heaters and each night about 50 meals.
No heat, three months later, as New York and New Jersey are experiencing a snowfall. I remember the halcyon days when the media criticized Chimpy McBushHitler for the Katrina response. I don’t really pay attention to the MSM, but I assume they’re throttling the Obama administration for this, right?
