No Help After Superstorm
Sandy? Angered Staten Island
Resident Tells President
Obama: “You Lied”

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/1/2012 12:59:51 PM

President Obama promised to help victims of Hurricane Sandy after the storm ravaged the East Coast. But after meeting with the president, one Staten Island family says he has broken that promise. Scott and Deidre McGrath joined Fox and Friends to tell their heartbreaking story. Scott spoke to the president after the storm, in what he described as a “staged” meeting. He said, “They put us into this tent and they wanted to make believe we were shopping for our products. Most of the residents that live in that area were never up there.” After waiting on line,

President George W. bush was demonized for Katrina, when in fact the post storm damage was inflicted by Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin.
President Zero makes a quick trip to the area hit by Sandy, Governor Fat Bast*rd kisses Zero´s butt, Zero wins reelection because of really stupid voters like this whining couple, and Zero´s teflon coating keeps him immune from his own incompetence.

I think I may start an on-line business of the world´s tiniest violins. There will be a lot of liberals you can give one to in the next four years.

#5 - My anger with the media began to turn into something akin to hatred with the Katrina coverage. I am pretty sure the rescue effort was the largest, most successful rescue every conducted by anyone, anywhere - over 10,000 people by the National Guard and Coast Guard. They couldn´t report that because they had to destroy Bush and the Republicans.

I hope you didn´t lose your tax records in the storm. You just might be getting audited.

It is still amazing how ignorant, blind, and gullible many Americans and those internationally.

BO has lied at the very least since he entered public office in IL. There is enough evidence to suggest he lied prior re: real estate deals, education, grades, financial aid and the source of tuition backing (but that is another issue).

Prior to 2008, through is first-term and now commencing his second term, there is not one "promise", statement or stance that he has not completely lied about. What is mind-blowing is often facts that reveal the lies are televised, recorded, and corroborated by others...yet very few people either notice or care.

Worse and even more shocking is that he harbors and parades blatant contempt for whites and jews, and yet they still vote for him in droves.

As his "Vote for Revenge Campaign" blanketed the nation for two years, this re-election provides him the hammer and sickle in which to exact his revenge upon the wealthy, the producers, the whites and the Israelis.

And what is equally as horrible is the Americans who detest this person, have no ability to exact their revenge upon him.

Since Sandy caused tens of billions of dollars worth of property damage throughout New York and New Jersey, it can´t be only Staten Islanders who are suffering.

However, it seems as if only Staten Islanders have enough courage to speak up about Obama´s empty promises.

It will take years to restore New York and New Jersey to pre-Sandy conditions, during which property values will decline and taxpayers will leave for other states unless FEMA, under the so-far malfeasant direction of Obama changes its ways.

But who will put pressure on Obama to do so? The governors of New York and New Jersey have been Obama´s biggest fans as they watch their citizens being abandoned to their misery.

Let´s hope the citizens of Staten Island will continue to hold angry townhalls and Fox News will continue to cover them so the world will know that New York and New Jersey still have pulses.

I feel so bad for all those suffering because of Sandy. Their lives have been absolutely devastated and any politician going there for a photo op is lower than pond scum. These people are desperate and believed the most senior person in the U.S. government when he told them to their faces that he would take care of everything. Unfortunately it has taken this storm to open their eyes to what we have known for the last four years. Obama is incompetent and he is a liar.

Undocumented immigrants with temporary legal status soon will be allowed to pay in-state tuition rates at all Ohio public colleges as long as they meet other residency requirements. Until now, most of the state’s public two- and four-year schools have charged those students out-of-state or international rates that can be as much as three times what Ohio students pay. Today, Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey sent a letter notifying the state’s college presidents about the change, after state Attorney General Mike DeWine determined that immigrant students now may qualify for in-state tuition.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist. NBC News was the most egregious offender
