Months ago? How do you even criticize this? Damned if you do, damned if you don't. If Sandy didn't hit as hard and trailers were not needed this article would just say "FEMA spent $xxx holding onto these unused trailers. Government waste at its worst!"

"Damned if you do, damned if you don't." That's a pretty good motto for the federal government.

How do you ever criticize this? They just make it too easy....

Now we learn that in the months before Hurricane Sandy, FEMA sold off temporary shelters at bargain basement prices.  Now, in Sandy's wake, FEMA will purchase new shelters -- although the "old" ones had only been used once, if at all -- presumably at top dollar.  Your tax dollars at work . . .

It's hard to understand how President Bush was somehow responsible for every mistake and inefficiency associated with Hurricane Katrina, while somehow, all the Sandy-related disasters -- many still ongoing more than two weeks later -- have nothing to do with President Obama.
