    Why isn't Obama doing something to help those people instead of out there on the stump bragging about how great the USA economy is doing.

    Obama just does photo ops.

    President Obama was with Gov. Chris Christie on the ground in Jersey and then in the air, in Marine One, and was not at one of the great addresses there are in New York, the great neighborhood of Breezy Point, because the mayor told him that the cops of New York City were needed elsewhere and everywhere on this day.
    Bloomberg told Obama not to come to NY. Don't blame Obama.

    With FEMA and Obama's response to Hurricane Sandy, 'big government' isn't just an election talking point
