Christie says East Coast waiting
´seven times longer´ than Katrina
victims for federal help

Fox News, by Staff

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slammed Washington once again Wednesday for its slow response in getting aid to Hurricane Sandy victims. “We’ve waited here now seven times longer than the victims of (Hurricane) Katrina to get help from the federal government,” he said, adding that some people were still waiting. Christie made his comments Wednesday on the Fox Business Network, one day after his annual State of the State address. Christie, who is up for re-election this year, has upped his public profile since Superstorm Sandy hit New Jersey last October. Last week, he called out House Speaker

Comments:
If you can´t see it yet, Christie just can´t keep his mouth shut and work with the other RINO GOP to get fed the "pork" he is requesting. Already given $9B in Sandy relief aid, 0bama´s new disciple demands more. Tea Party needs to start looking for a replacement.

Katrina would have gotten help instantly but their stupid gov wouldnt give GW to send in the troops (so to speak). I am not fond of beaches or water and to build expensive homes on the ocean front is the last thing that I would do or even think about. It´s called flood insurance.

It´s Bush´s fault.
I agree with you, OP. Christie is raising his profile, with 2016 in the windshield.

Dang, this could have been Mitt´s fault. The whole nebulous blame various Republicans for no rational reason just doesn´t have quite the same zing as blaming Bush did, does it?

Has the whole political / media class lost their collective minds? People I talk to in the real world seem to be relatively sane. But turn on the Tv or go online and it´s a freakin explosion of crazy.

I don´t believe this. I saw Christie praising Obama for his quick response. So someone else must be saying these things in Christie´s name. Christie was promised help by Obama. (lol)

Hey Lardbutt Christie. Get off your enormous haunches and start acting like a damn governor and not like a food stamp or welfare recipient whose mewling because his government handout check is late.. Quit waiting for the overbearing, oppressive Federal government to bail you out. Don´t you get it? No amount of butt kissing of our first communist president is gonna get you any aid. Your on your own and you´ll have to solve the hurricane problems yourself. So quit whining about federal aid and get to work.

Funny how when there´s a republican in the White House, it´s the president´s fault. When there´s a liberal democrat in the White House, it is the fault of Congress or the states.

Christie, go cry on your buddy´s shoulder. Oh, I forgot Obama will not give you the time of day now that you are no longer necessary to him.

#1 That would have been Louisiana, and its dumb-o-crat governess Kathleen Blanco. Next door in Mississippi, where Katrina actually made landfall by the way, Barbour and the State and Local officials were ready and waiting. As was FEMA, because Barbour had already issued a state of emergency and requested federal assistance.

(Not criticizing, just adding to.)

Two questions for the blowhard.

Prior to the storm, when all of us were told to prepare for the hurricane....did Christie bother to communicate with NJ Transit to be assured that they had followed the report recommendations about the flooding danger for the rail cars?

Following the previous eight day power outage, what communication did he have with the Public Utilities Commission to make sure that JCP&L was prepared for the storm.

In both cases I would bet Christie did NOTHING.

I point my finger at his failure as Governor of NJ.

Hey Chris, the only thing that 0blamer did fast on Sandy was to get on TV and let you kiss his butt.
He could have expended some of the money already appropriated to provide needed emergency relief.
Money to fix the waterfront mansions ofthe rich and famous is not an emergency.

We are Andrew survivors. Our electricity took 7 weeks to be returned to our house. It took us almost a year to settle with the insurance company and complete the repairs. The initial work was done by my husband and myself. It included tearing out all the carpets, general clean up of interior and yard. We did have a window person come and replace all the necessary broken windows. We dried all of our furniture on the lawn in the beautiful Florida sun and we never saw a FEMA representative nor did we call them. We spent the six weeks after the clean up and lock down with our children in a small apartment in NYC only returning when notified that the electric was restored. Most people will find that they have to help themselves. The government postures while the people suffer. Working at your own recovery is the best cure after the catastrophe.

Maybe if Obama throws Christie another dollar bill, he will get off the pole and shake his groove thing again..... but this time there aren´t any voters watching to see his dance. Obama will probably keep his dollar.

Kiev, Ukraine - For two weeks, the mysteriously well-armed, professional gunmen known as “green men” have seized Ukrainian government sites in town after town, igniting a brush fire of separatist unrest across eastern Ukraine. Strenuous denials from the Kremlin have closely followed each accusation by Ukrainian officials that the world was witnessing a stealthy invasion by Russian forces. Now, photographs and descriptions from eastern Ukraine endorsed by the Obama administration on Sunday suggest that many of the green men are indeed Russian military and intelligence forces — equipped in the same fashion as Russian

An operation targeting al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is under way in Abyan and Shabwa, Yemen, a high-level Yemeni government official who is being briefed on the strikes told CNN on Monday. The official said that the scale of the strikes against AQAP is "massive and unprecedented" and that at least 30 militants have been killed. The operation involved Yemeni commandos who are now "going after high-level AQAP targets," the official said. A day earlier, suspected drone strikes targeted al Qaeda fighters in Yemen for the second time in two days, killing "at least a dozen," the government official said. The predawn strikes targeted a

Tactical advantage: Russian military
shows off impressive new gear

Elite Russian troops are displaying a new arsenal of body armor, individual weapons, armor-piercing ammunition and collar radios — a menu of essential gear that gives them a big tactical advantage against a lesser-equipped Ukrainian army. If President Vladimir Putin orders an invasion, the new-generation body armor, in particular, would provide exceptional protection against small arms if Russian troops go street by street to capture Kiev and other cities. “What we saw and what was dangled in front of the West was a clear indication that Putin is on a roll,” retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Robert Scales said. “It just seems to me from watching

Thirteen people were confirmed dead in a coal mine gas explosion in southwest China´s Yunnan Province early Monday, the local government said. The accident happened at around 12:30 a.m. in a pit of Hongtutian Coal Mine in Fuyuan County in the city of Qujing, the county government said in a press release. A total of 56 people were working in the pit, of whom 42 escaped without injuries and 14 were trapped, it said. As of 8 a.m., rescuers had retrieved 13 dead bodies and were searching all-out for the missing miner. The county government said Hongtutian is a private mine and is properly licensed for operation.

After Joseph Heller published his seminal war novel Catch-22 he adapted the book for the stage. He hoped it would go to Broadway - but more than 40 years on, his script has very rarely been performed. Now it is finally getting its UK premiere. (Snip) Yossarian´s nightmare: Stationed in Italy and afraid of being shot down, he wanted to be declared insane and sent home. But military rules said that fear of death was a rational response, so anyone who asked to be grounded could not possibly be truly crazy. And those who were insane would not be aware of the fact, and therefore would be unable to ask to be grounded.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
