And they did vote for Obama and Christie will have smooth sailing for Governor because after the photo op, Christie’s potential rival Newark Mayor Cory Booker said he wouldn’t run. Another potential rival, State Sen. Richard Codey just announced he won’t run, specifically mentioning the photo op people call Sandy.
He said he believed he could have made it a real race, but is not sure how quickly he could tighten the gap in polls.
He pointed to a poll done before Superstorm Sandy hit that showed Christie ahead of him by only 6 points in a hypothetical matchup.
“The shine form Sandy obviously will wear off,” he said.
Oh, yeh, Barry Zero and Ahab’s fixation did such a great job!
The brutal cold snap affecting much of the country is taking a devastating toll on victims of superstorm Sandy, many of whom are camped out in tent cities or living in homes without power, heat or running water.
Those unable to get proper lodging have hunkered down in their homes without the basic necessities of heat, electricity, or running water.
“Many families in Union Beach are using space heaters to warm upstairs,” said Jeanette Van Houten, a resident from the small New Jersey town that was among the hardest-hit communities. “There’s people with no heat, no electric, but they are staying in the house because it’s better than having to deal with FEMA and having to leave hotels every two weeks.
Residents of the New Dorp Beach section of Staten Island have taken shelter in tents set up by aid workers with only small propane heaters, sleeping bags and blankets to stave off the bone-chilling cold, according to reports.
In the Queens neighborhood of Breezy Point, one of the most storm-ravaged areas of the region, residents lined up at the local recovery center this week to pick up donated ceramic space heaters. Many of the suffering residents in the five boroughs of New York City say their homes still are barely habitable, despite the city’s so-called Rapid Repairs program that was supposed to make their homes livable quickly.
According to the city, construction teams for the Rapid Repairs program have restored heat, hot water and power to more than 12,000 city residents, with work still to be completed in another 1,900 buildings.
I don’t know why people won’t run against Christie, this is becoming a national disgrace. The president, governor, and mayor are all national disgraces. But, the worst disgrace is the people who put them in the positions they are in today.
