Remember this picture?
This picture of a Hurricane Sandy victim went viral and helped Obama win re-election. Now, the pictured victim, Donna Vanzant, feels even more victimized: “After his visit, I sent an email to President Obama. Many days later, I got a response back. It was disturbing. It had nothing to do with what I was asking him. It was a form letter. It thanked me for supporting the troops. He made a promise to rebuild on national television, and I can’t even get this money. It’s heartbreaking, really. I did reach out to Senator Whelan, and I got a response that they were forwarding my email to the person that Governor Christie put in charge of Sandy relief. But from President Obama, I got a form letter. When you get a hug from the President of the United States, you feel like there’s something there. A promise was made. I have two grown kids. One is a U.S. Navy diver. The other one lives at the marina with his wife and new baby, and they lost everything. But I raised my kids to know that your word is your word. You promise something, you keep it, and that was a broken promise. I’ve never been a person to expect free handouts, but the President gave me hope. But now, I just don’t know.”
Obama did such a great job in responding to Hurricane Sandy, huh? Chris Christie, the so-called “Republican” who might have singlehandedly gotten Obama re-elected thinks so!
Let’s look at what’s happening now: Gas rationing. And “looting and thievery have become such serious threats that taking up arms and fleeing town are the best options for staying safe” in New York and New Jersey. As the weather starts to get bad again, FEMA has been shutting down its offices “due to weather.”
New York and New Jersey: two Blue States feeling blue.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews summed it all up immediately after Obama’s re-election: “I’m so glad we had that storm last week.”
America can thank the morbidly-obese “Republican” traitor Chris Christie for allowing Obama to appear bipartisan and “presidential” immediately before Election Day by appearing in Hurricane Sandy-hit areas of New Jersey with Obama and ditching Romney’s campaign rally: “President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cemented their new-found mutual admiration society on Wednesday, as the men gushed with praise for one another while touring damage from Hurricane Sandy on the devastated Jersey Shore.”
Ironically, the reality is that Obama mishandled the response to Hurricane Sandy and openly politicized the natural disaster while warning Romney not to play politics.
The Democrats can’t contain themselves: they are entirely thankful for Americans’ pain and suffering, because they believe that it propels them to victory over American individuals’ and states’ God-given liberty.
