No, because Obama did not fly over in a jet looking detached, nor did he appoint a horse show PR person to head FEMA.

Like Christie said, he is on top of the disaster and working to mitigate it.

We are seeing some of the same failures following Sandy that followed Katrina:

Failure to evacuate resulting in 88 dead [cnn.com]

Hungry Victims of Sandy Eat from Dumpsters [nbcnewyork.com]

Desperate Victims Fight for gasoline [foxnews.com]

Rampant Looting: 'This is a Crime Scene. It's a Catastrophe' [huffingtonpost.com]

'An Absolute Disgrace' [politicker.com]

Will Sandy be Obama's Katrina?
I click on this comment "Failure to evacuate resulting in 88 dead" and nothing that is loaded resembles that claim. A lie, indeed.

So but for one competent state governor and want of one race-baiting mayor this is Obama's Katrina?

Eighty-eight dead after a superstorm hits one of the most populated urban areas in the country, compared to 1,833 dead after Katrina.

Comparison fail.

Repeating the question doesn't make it any more accurate.

It is amazing what NOT building a city in a hole below sea level next to the ocean will do to mitigate death totals. Who ever would have guessed?

This is a debate. I could just give you the answers, but that would be too easy.

Who ever would have guessed that two different disasters in two different locations would end up with, you know, different results?

It's even easier to just toss out some bullshit & see how much sticks... as your posts routinely demonstrate.

Right. And it is George W. Bush's fault New Orleans is below sea level? And Barry Obama gets credit for NYC being above sea level?

Obama has been SUPERB at handling this disaster. Romney would have gutted FEMA and left the States to fend for themselves. A disgraceful Republican candidate who flip flops back and forth on his Pro-life, pro-choice stances.....Lies about Jeep moving their manufacturing to China...and when he thinks he's not being recorded he tells his suck buddy Republican friends that he really could care less about 47 percent of the people of this country....Shameful.....Truly shameful

I have no issue with that, other than I would prefer eliminating FEMA all together.

Why do you think that is a problem?


If Obama has been so "superb" why were there 88 dead, looting, hungry people eating from dumpsters, and people with no gasoline?

Seems more like trolling when the premise is so ridiculous.

And if Obama had put a clown like Brown in charge of FEMA, he'd have accomplished the same thing and Sandy truly would be Obama's Katrina.

Because there was a farking hurricane!
What the hell could Obama have done to prevent any of what you claim above?
That is almost as bad as claiming Obama can some how make storms like this less frequent...

Also, eliminating FEMA sounds like a horrible idea.

Is the premise ridiculous? The MSM is out cheerleading about 0bama and Sandy but the reality appears to be that he isn't doing such a great job. Case in point, the news stories linked in the OP.

I thought you were a libertarian.

Ron Paul supports eliminating FEMA.

Say ridiculous statement that no one has claimed but end with a question mark? Makes it okay?
