People such as photo-op hungry charles schumer, elected to represent NY in the U.S. Senate, clearly for too many times is applauding the federal governments efforts, little as they have been, along with napolitano and her herd of incompetents, while the people of NY particularly Staten Island continue to cry out for help, food, water and hope. To date there has been no word from cutesy gillibrand with regard to what has happened as a result of hurricane Sandy, since she is too busy trying to convince a now doubting electorate that she ever had any qualifications to be a U.S. Senator, while placing her face in questionable soundbites on TV.
Getting gasoline to stations has no effect when there is no power to pump the fuel in to cars. More generators, not infrastructure is now needed.
mayor bloomberg with his magnanimous gesture to cancel the marathon that should have been cancelled a week ago, has done one thing positive and that being telling obama to stay out of NY. These politicians, along with the cabinet members who have been told to mingle with the folks remain a disgrace to the American people and certainly the people of the states they were elected or appointed to represent at all times, including emergencies. Too bad schumer has more time to serve. Many probably should be doing time. Intelligent NY has the opportunity to reject gillibrand and should run with it on November 6.
