    Here we are 12 days later, why isn't this being reported like Katrina was reported? The area effected is much smaller and the devastation is less, yet 12 days later it is still a mess. The good news for the people is that the messiah will pay them a visit, all they need do is wait four more days.

    Agreed. It's interesting how Bush got lambasted by the media for the way the feds handled Katrina, yet the media is silent about how poorly the Obama administration has handled Sandy.

    FEMA doesn't put the power on.

    And the president isn't handling it badly and didn't handle it badly

    No matter how much anyone wants to pretend that he and baby bush were equally bad

    Sandy isn't Katrina.

    Things are progressing. This isnt the movies, life will not return to normal 5 min. After a disaster.

    Nobody is expecting an immediate recovery, but in the 21st century expecting power to be restored to the most populous region in the country in less than 12 days is more than a reasonable expectation.

    True, he didn't really handle it at all. He just flew to New Jersey for a photo op before the election.

    I don't agree they were equally bad. Obama is much worse on his response than Bush was, in my opinion.
