Obama's response to Sandy is not going well.

What is his excuse and what will he do to solve the growing problems in the region?

@H2O MAN,
He's probably preparing the U.S. for the Romney-Ryan plan to take effect

though they're apparently not exactly sure what that plan is

Do you see a trend here?


Hey Obama, four Americans were just murdered in Benghazi, what are you going to do?

Obama: I'm going to Las Vegas!




Hey Obama, Sandy left millions of American voters suffering on the east coast, what are you going to do?

@H2O MAN,
Decatur Utilities, based in Decatur, Ala., denied the report.
Quote:
In a press release issued Friday morning, Decatur Utilities said it had sent a six-man crew to the Northeast on Wednesday, bound for Seaside Heights, N.J.

"Communications with Seaside Heights was poor due to lack of cell phone service in the area," the statement said. "Upon arriving at a staging area in Virginia, crews were held in place pending clarification of documents received from IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers) that implied a requirement of our employees to agree to union affiliation while working in the New York and New Jersey areas. It was and remains our understanding that agreeing to those requirements was a condition of being allowed to work in those areas.

"As we waited for clarification, we became aware that Seaside Heights had received the assistance they needed from other sources, To be clear, at no time were our crews "turned away" from the utility in Seaside Heights.

@Walter Hinteler,

Bullshit!

There is audio and probably video

-By Warner Todd Huston

This is another great example of why unions are entirely un-American… in fact, in this case they are non-human. In the aftermath of the devastation of Hurricane Sandy union thugs in New Jersey have refused to allow non-union crews that came all the way from Alabama to help the victims.

As TV 48 News reports, crews from Huntsville, Alabama went all the way to New Jersey to help repair the utilities there, but because these helpful crews are non-union, the thugs of New Jersey’s utility companies agitated to make sure these volunteers would not be allowed to work in their state.

The Alabama crews were told they could not help in Jersey and were told to go try Long Island, instead. One crew already gave up and went home discouraged that their offer of help was refused.

So, these union thugs would rather worry about their unions than worry about the victims of the storm? These union thugs are more concerned with their inhuman union than they are about their own neighbors, friends and family members? These union thugs don’t care if their fellow humans are put in danger and discomfort if it means that non-union workers get a chance to help out?

Doesn’t this show that unions don’t care abut people? That all they care about is their greed, avarice, their inhuman “rules”? People don’t matter to unions. Quality of work doesn’t matter to unions. Even reality doesn’t matter to unions. Only unions matter to these union thugs.

Now, Mr. Obama claimed he’d “get rid of the red tape” to help New Jersey come back from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. He said he cared. Yet he’s standing by doing nothing as these union thugs turn away important help for their own neighbors all to satisfy union rules?

How is that cutting the red tape?

Where is president Obama?

Why is the National Guard not fully deployed in these areas devastated by Sandy?

What is Obama's plan to help these Americans that are suffering?

PrezBO is pathetic.

Obama's pathetic handling of Benghazi and Sandy should have all Americans that have not voted yet moving in mass to
vote for Romney... I bet there are many early voters that wish they could change their vote and have it go for Romney.

As much as the left enjoys threatening riots if Obama loses the election, I feel that there is better chance that you will see
riots if Obama is reelected to a 2nd term - especially in light of his pathetic presidential response to Benghazi and now Sandy.

@H2O MAN,
I went and read articles on the subject - not just the one Walter referenced.

Apparently you did not.


this is one of the updates to Walter's link

http://blog.al.com/breaking/2012/11/huntsville_utilities_denies_cl.html

Quote:
Bill Yell, spokesman for Huntsville Utilities, said nine of his employees are currently helping with recovery from Hurricane Sandy and had no union-related issues.

"That's a rumor," he said. "We are starting work this morning with Long Island Power Authority. We were headed to a New Jersey utility but they had all the crews they could handle."

A spokeswoman for Joe Wheeler Electrical Membership Cooperative said the crews from Trinity also are assisting with storm recovery and, in fact, are unionized.

"It is not true for us," she said. "I don't know how we got lumped in there (in that report). We sent eight guys to Maryland, not New Jersey. They have been there since before the storm but they've finished work and are headed home this morning."

The crews from Joe Wheeler EMC went to Denton, Md., in anticipation of the storm and worked with Choptank Electrical Cooperative.





why people persist in spreading rumors after they've been told they are incorrect ... <shrug> they don't have to answer to anyone but themselves and their own beliefs.
