And no, I do not think Obama should be blamed.
This is local. City and state officials have completely dropped the ball.
Just like Katrina.
Obama's handling of Sandy is polling at 68% approval and only 15% disapproval. The talking heads on the Sunday shows are saying the recent uptick in the polls for President is due to Obama's handling of Sandy.
It's a disaster. 30 million people inside a 50 square mile lost power, roads are for shit etc. Obama ordered main line active service troops to airlift California electric company's workers and their trucks to NY to help get power back on. There is gas in the stations but have no power to pump it. Have you seen all the supplies on the tarmac at the airport ready to go as soon as the roads are cleared of boats, trees houses etc.? It'a a ****ing disaster. It's not going to be cleaned up in a week, And that stupid ass mayor stalled the recovery by a day or tow with that stupid marathon.
But, Obama doesnt get full credit for this. I think it has more to do with appointing a non-partisan experienced professional disaster leader in charge instead of a political appointee.
