FEMA is about as incompetent as Obama. Weren't they watching the weather reports telling them a huge storm was going to hit NY and NJ in a weeks' time? Did they learn nothing from Katrina?
This is a lesson to the people in this country to take care of themselves by storing water, getting gas generators or gas logs for the fireplace, or making arrangements other than staying there and hoping for the best. You are basically responsible for yourselves. No Bloomberg, no Obama, no Christie is going to be around to hear your pleas for relief. It's up to you to help yourselves, and others, if you can.
