    Obama said yesterday that he was going to remove all of the regulations and bureaucracy that has been put in place over the years to speed everything up during a crisis.

    Unfortunately for him he's doing exactly what Mitt Romney plans on doing once he takes office.

    Most of what Romney wants to do is streamline government, turn over parts of the federal government to the states, and reduce the red-tape that is always involved so that costs go down and efficiency goes up.

    I guess Obama has seen the light. Instead of being a road-block to everything during a crisis Democrats want to be facilitators.

    Do you think that he would be doing this if it wasn't close to the election?

    I seriously doubt it.


    Usually Obama is the cause of most of the problems in America. When the Gulf Oil Spill happened he caused the clean-up to take much longer when his folks were out there counting life-jackets and forcing clean-up ships to stay docked until they could find enough preservers to suit Uncle Sam.

    Looks like Obama's efforts aren't going so well.........


    “Because the devastation in Staten Island, the lack of a response,” Mr. Molinaro said to explain his comment to NBC after the press conference. “You know, I went to a shelter Monday night after the storm. People were coming in with no socks, with no shoes. They were in desperate need. Their housing was destroyed. They were crying. Where was the Red Cross? Isn’t that their function? They collect millions of dollars. Whenever there’s a drive in Staten Island, we give openly and honestly. Where are they? Where are they? I was at the South Shore yesterday, people were buried in their homes. There the dogs are trying to find bodies. The people there, the neighbors who had no electricity, were making soup. Making soup. It’s very emotional because the lack of a response. The lack of a response. They’re supposed to be here….They should be on the front lines fighting, and helping the people.”

    You don't reach the state of starving since Tuesday. Hungry, yes, but not starving. And since over half of New York has power, with grocery stores open, why is it they cannot walk to where there are supplies?

    I think that this is just more bullshit to try to discredit the President's response to this disaster. A response that continues to earn high praise from the Governors of the states involved as well as local authorities.

    Obama Hurricane Sandy: Governors Praise President Response to Hurricane Sandy

    As Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast on Monday, President Obama was orchestrating an “outstanding” federal response according to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). Normally a harsh critic of the president and a surrogate on the campaign trail for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Christie joined Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) in praising Obama and his administration’s disaster response.

    “The federal government’s response has been great. I was on the phone at midnight again last night with the President, personally. He has expedited the designation of New Jersey as a major disaster area,” Christie told NBC’s Today Show on Tuesday.

    President Obama declared New Jersey and New York major disaster areas Tuesday morning, and ordered federal aid to accompany local and state recovery efforts beginning October 26, 2012, according to a statement issued by the White House.

    “I have to say, the administration, the president himself and FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate have been outstanding with us so far,” Christie said on Good Morning America. “We have a great partnership with them.”

    Obama spoke personally with the mayors of New York, Jersey City and Newark as well, and has planned a conference call for Tuesday afternoon with governors and mayors in the affected areas

    The response has been great because Obama cuts a few hundred corners of bullshit Federal bureaucracy
    in order to get some nice press clippings in a mad dash toward the finish line of an election that is way too close...

    Maybe they don't walk to the stores because they have no socks and shoes.

    Most people can't go 24 hrs much less 3 days.

    Why don't you try it and see how it feels. I've gone over a week without eating. I know what it feels like.
