Staten Island Hurricane Victims "Being Ignored," While Non-Union Relief Crews Turned Away in N.J.

Remember the other day when Richard Milhous Obama was speaking at the Red Cross, vowing to "cut through red tape" to get relief to victims of Hurricane Sandy?  That Americans don't leave people behind? (Ask Ambassador Stevens).

Well, residents in Staten Island, New York are feeling ignored (SeeBS News).

Nearly half of New York City's deaths from superstorm Sandy happened in Staten Island.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is going there Friday. People there say they're suffering -- and not getting enough help. Some residents have been calling the area "the forgotten borough. 
Across storm-ravaged Staten Island, frustrations are mounting. One resident there told CBS station WCBS, "We're gonna die! We're gonna freeze! We've got 90-year-old people!" 
Residents are outraged, claiming their community has been ignored in the days following Sandy while aid pours into other parts of New York and New Jersey. Natvel Pritchard, of Staten Island, said, "Though people don't talk about Staten Island much, people are here, a lot of people are hurting, so it's upsetting."
Power is out, hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and dozens of streets are impassable. Still, the city is planning to go ahead with its annual marathon, which kicks off on Staten Island's Verrazano-Narrows Bridge on Sunday.
Resident Nicole Malliotakis said, "We are far from fine and the fact that the mayor wants to have a marathon this weekend when we have people who lost either their lives or lost their entire house. I mean, it's unbelievable to me."

Bloomberg is an idiot! He's endorsing Obama because he believes the man-made fraud known as glo-BULL warming caused the storm, never mind a similar storm in 1938. Now he wants to have a marathon while people are still suffering and others are dumpster diving just to get food?

Remember when Obama stopped in New Jersey for a photo op with the big boy Chris "Krispy Kreme" Christie? So much good that did. Non-union relief workers from Alabama were turned away and weren't able to help. So where's Krispy Kreme to throw his weight around on the unions? Why doesn't he get his new idol Obama to remove the red tape?

Since Obama couldn't wait to take charge for the pre-election photo op, can we stick this failure onto him, and will be media cover this up like they have Benghazi?
