The first few days were apparently photo-ops for BO & Christie.

However, the actual facts are a lot different than the spin being spun by the MSM.

1. Unions are preventing more power lines from being restored. Not one word in the MSM.

2. The freezing weather is coming, and there is no effort to make more fuel and power available to the gas stations.

3. Millions are without power, so why aren't the unions being told to stand-down?

Lets take a quick vote.

The worse part is the pandering support that the mainstream consistently gives to the Hussein administration at the expense of the American public's right to know. It doesn't take a genius to understand that the media is holding it's breath and refusing to report any situation that might tend to influence the election until the election is over.

When a storm hits in this area the local power companies get help from other States to restore power as fast as possible. In the case of New Jersey and New York the Union refuses to allow crews that are not union from helping. Meaning they slow down the repair time,, adversely effecting the people businesses and LIVES of those in the area.

The Press had no problem in Louisiana blaming shit that had nothing to do with FEMA on FEMA. Now they are ignoring the failure of 2 States to allow work crews to fix power stations lines and conditions. People DIE with out power. Business go broke with out power. Hell the poor can not even buy supplies because they have CARDS for food stamps and there is no power to swipe the card.

This is a failure on the part of Local Governments. And a failure in national leadership for not taking them to task for it. This President would rather protect his Union ties then help people in need.

Still have a million homes w/o power and 40,000 destroyed homes. Lets track how long it takes to get folks in trailers like for Katrina.

This union vesus non-union story was debunked by Gov. Christie last week. Why are you all still trying to push it?

Because the "FEMA ran out of Water" story got debunked already today? So they have to dredge up some other phoney story and hope that it doesn't get debunked, again.

But they have outdone themselves with the number of lies this cycle.

Must have been going for the record.......they win!

Rather ironic that their fiscal hero Christie was the one who ratted them out as liars, don't you think?

Oh come on now, he's on the Big RINO list don-cha-know. Gotta wonder what Ann-d-mann thinks about him now?

Not really. Christie is a no nonsense type of guy. It is exactly the type of thing that I expect from him. Screw the party, tell things like they are.
