So basically this thread comes down to, " I hate Obanma, he's taken over 60 days to help anyone". When that was proven a lie it became, " I hate Obama, he's taken over 30 days to help anyone". When it was explained that this was phoenaminally fast given the circumstances, it hen became, "Obama dosen't care about White People". After that it will be......

New C&D term..."circle jerk thread".

If there is any karma many of those still suffering from Sandy were highly critical of the way George W Bush handled Katrina.

This was more than a rain storm. You do realize that at the height of the Sandy devastation, over 8 million people were without power, right? In the Metro NY region, there is a confluence of several rivers that make up the NY Harbor estuary system, including the Raritan, Passaic, Hudson, and East Rivers. Not only were there storm surges along those rivers that catastrophically aligned with high tides, there was also a huge storm surge South of the harbor along the NJ shore. I'm not making the argument that Sandy was worse than Katrina--it obviously wasn't in terms of lives lost. But if you look at the concentration of people affected as well as the infrastructure supporting them, well, that complicates things.

To compare the two storms is to really compare apples to oranges. Katrina had devastating effects on NOLA, a medium-sized American city in terms of flooding, as well as upon the MS and AL gulf coasts in terms of wind damage and utter destruction, although those areas are much more sparsely populated than NOLA was or is. Communities in MS like Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian, Waveland, and so on, were decimated, and that was and continues to be a tragedy although the sheer number of people affected was not huge.

Superstorm Sandy, however, affected about ten million people in a very densely populated area. The logistical problems arising in the aftermath of both storms are very different, although the tragedy for the victims is similar. One is not necessarily worse than the other; there will rather be different clean-up strategies that will need to be and have been undertaken. As someone who has lived near the Gulf Coast during Katrina and on the East Coast during Sandy, I can say that it seems that the response to Sandy has been more efficient, but who cares? If you happen to be in the dark without heat, or if you were at some point up to your neck with flood waters rising, what I thought or think won't make a dime's worth of difference. If I were in either of those situations I would want the rest of the country pulling for me and doing everything they could to avoid politicizing human tragedy and hurling partisan-minded accusations at each other. I would hope that you could put aside the apples and oranges and attend to the needs of the people right in front of you.

Rational argument can be discussed, irrationality just makes posters look insane.
