Hurricane Sandy has become Barack Obama's Katrina.
I'm going to present a scenario for you all to think about. Imagine if you will a strong hurricane that struck in a densely populated area which flooded cities and towns leaving thousands of people stranded while also knocking out power to millions of people. Now imagine that days after the storm has passed, people were starving due to a lack of food which resorted to in some cases looting, areas running out of gas, immense infrastructure damage etc.
Lastly, let's say that the federal government's response was not up to par. Are you thinking I am making reference to George W Bush and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans? No, I am not. This is what is happening in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York City and in parts of New Jersey like Hoboken.
Four days after Sandy, people in Staten Island New York have no food., clothing, gasoline for their generators etc. Five years ago, then U.S Senator Barack Obama implied that the slow response to Hurricane Katrina victims was due to racism. Rapper Kayne West claimed that "Bush didn't care about black people" because of how Katrina was handled. Progressives and their media allies made it their mission to tar and feather President Bush as a racist. So let's talk about Sandy. Is Obama a racist also? Do the same rules apply and if not why not?The only contrasts as I see it is that in the case of Sandy, many of the victims of the Sandy are white as opposed to the Katrina victims in New Orleans who were mostly black. Also, we can't ignore the other obvious. Bush was a white male Republican where as Obama is a black male Democrat. Of course progressives are going to be quick to claim that there is no double standard in how these two weather related tragic events have been covered. Of course, I know better. The media was more then happy to take pictures of Barack Obama with Governor Chris Christie in an attempt to give him a boost in the polls . Good luck in the national media showing footage of people garbage diving for food , because they can't get any help from the government. Correction, they would show it if the president was white and a Republican that is. Sandy is Obama' Katrina no doubt about it.
