    And here I thought they had finally figured out how to handle a disaster after their epic fail with katrina....sad to report it's the same old story of incompetent bureaucrats standing around doing nothing.

    I feel bad for the folks who expected them to help. This is yet another example of why you need to prepare yourself for a disaster. You need at least three months of food and water stored up in case of a disaster like this.

    The problem with floods is that they invariably wash away every provision you stocked up.

    They should have evacuated and left their possessions for the scavengers.

    The government could, and should have stockpiled food and water on high ground for this event. The electricity needs would have been far better met had the NJ electricians not demanded that all the electricians coming to help join their union. Etc. etc. etc.

    What happened to Super Oblamer with Sandy???

    I thought he could move heaven and earth???

    Oh wait, that was the MSM, they said Bush could, but Oblamer just had to move his lips...

    I have to say, I'm baffled. If the centers were in tents then they'd have to close, but I don't think that's the case. That the National Guard crapped out is even more confusing.

    In my day the volunteers and paid crews stayed with those in need until the job was finished. I cannot imagine locking the door when those that lost everything have a blizzard coming.

    I'm stunned.

    Nevermind - they closed because they didn't want the victims traveling to them during the storm. Too dangerous. They opened again after the storm passed.

    Most people have no idea how bad things are because the MSM has been AWOL on this story until yesterday...and even now are marginalizing FEMA failure.
    An example of just how incompetent things are...they are out of telephone poles. They cannot put up new lines because no one ordered more poles. Why? Because FEMA officials told the power officials to give them a list of supplies they need - they did...Sunday. Still no poles.
