Do you remember just days after Hurricane Sandy seeing President Obama and Gov. Christie of New Jersey standing together at a news conference at which time Christie praised Obama for his support and promises made about help from the federal government?

Do you remember Obama saying that all necessary help and all possible financial aid would be swiftly forthcoming?

Well, there are thousands of people in New Jersey and New York still waiting for the promised help. Hundreds of homes sit empty; debris still clogs many streets. When was the last time you saw anything on TV or in the newspapers about the delays, red tape, etc., that is preventing people getting meaningful assistance?

Remember how the press and TV commentators screamed about the horrible delays of the Bush administration after Katrina? Do you think it might be because the mainstream media will do everything in its power to protect a liberal president it adores?
