You cheering this?

Sorta looks like it.

The area is returning to normalcy pretty quickly.

The gas thing, however..is pretty annoying.

My heart goes out to those suffering so greatly from this tragedy.

However, the biggest tragedy of all is the ineptitude of government agencies and their stupidity which is hindering efforts to get much needed aid to these people.

Generator sitting idle in a parking lot because some desk jockey doesn't know what to do or is afraid to make a decision?

That's the tragedy!

Bluntly, nothing that the President does is going to please people like you. You, and others like you, are searching for anything to hang your hatred for the President on.

This is a major disaster with a huge area affected. The infrastructure damage is extreme in many areas. There will be errors and snafus as is the norm in situations like this. However, the local, state, and federal governments have done a very good job in this disaster, before and after. Real cooperation, and effort to get the material and personel to where it is needed.

Thus far, given the scope of the disaster, I think all have done very well.

Yeah, but I gotta' wonder. Would you be saying this same thing if it was still George W. Bush who was president? And, did you say anything similar to this when George W. Bush was president, after Katrina? No, I suspect you didn't...huh, hypocrite?

Sandy is fitting exclamation point to the end of a presidency that began with "today is the day the seas stopped their rise".
