Well, Iguess George W. did much better than Obama on the emergency. What exactly has O done for the victims. The people I see helping on individuals. Where is the Red Cross. Total disaster. And they had warning, probably not to the extent that it actually way. Well, they did get the warning to the extent, but people just didn't believe it. I didn't know until today exactly how many states were affected. I think everyone should write or call Anneheuser Bush or however you spell it. I heard they have stopped producing beer and are only producing water to send to these areas. I am hoping that it was for humanitarian reasons and not becuase they are getting some kind of kick back from the government. Kudos to them.

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.

Nah!. Its Bush's fault anyway.The Bush budget cuts- that never happened -still crippled the agency and Obama is still trying to clean it up. But he can't because the Republicans are obstructing the budget -i.e the budget the Democrats haven't even proposed since 2008.

Following up on my post from earlier today, FEMA has run out of water. From Breitbart:

FEMA's vaunted "lean forward" strategy that called for advanced staging of supplies for emergency distribution failed to live up to its billing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

In fact, the agency appears to have been completely unprepared to distribute bottled water to Hurricane Sandy victims when the storm hit this Monday. In contrast to its stated policy, FEMA failed to have any meaningful supplies of bottled water -- or any other supplies, for that...
