Default Where is the Outrage?

Where is the outrage from the media for the poor response from the government, i.e. obama? Where are the reporters pouncing on obama for not providing immediate relief for the storm victims?

I pulled a few headlines from Drudge, yet I fail to see the MSM elites going after obama.

Obama seeks votes as complaints mount over storm response...

Devastated residents lash out at Bloomberg during unannounced visit...

'I feel like a victim of Hurricane Katrina'...

Chaos reigns at free gas fiasco...

Frenzy...

Fear of the Dark...

FEMA Out Of Water, No Delivery Until Monday...

Residents arm up: Bats, machetes, shotguns...

'It's Like The Wild West'...

'Anarchy in Queens'...


obama has ****ing failed yet again and the media is no where to be found. People are dying and eating out of dumpsters and FEMA can't deliver any more water until Monday, and yet obama gets another pass from the media. How ****ing sad for this country that we have an incompetent ******* sitting in the White House.

Because you pulled it from Drudge. Who makes up whatever he wants, blows things totally out of context, and is desperate to make a point, not report news.

Sandy is nothing close to Katrina. When it is, when Obama gets anywhere close to Bush's failure there, let me know...

Until then, you can keep the faux outrage.

NOTHING about Sandy has got even close to reaching Katrina level. The federal response has been excellent. Just ask Chris Christie and Bloomberg...

Then why was the marathon cancelled? I mean, with all that calm over there, couldn't enough hotels and motels be opened up to accommodate the influx of tourists and runners? Souvenir stands, hot dogs Coney Island style, volunteers with paper cups filled with water, all those T-shirts with the "HA HA! I survived *giggle giggle* Sandy! logos? Whazzup, people?

Perhaps, there isn't so much outrage because the government has responded to this natural disaster.

The government responded to Katrina. It responded badly. With Sandy, Obama turned up to have some pictures taken on a New Jersey beach, promised money, then flew to Vegas. The screw-ups with Sandy are just starting to manifest. Where is President Photo Op now? Why isn't the media asking that question?

The President is much more on Sandy, than Bush was on Katrina.

And if you say that enough it becomes true, right?

ID, you are trying to make a case with zero evidence. I could say the same to you. Just whining about the President doesn't make him the enemy you think he is.
