There’s Already 17 Times More Coverage On Christie Scandal Than In Last Six Months Of IRS – Media Research Center

In less than 24 hours, the three networks have devoted 17 times more coverage to a traffic scandal involving Chris Christie than they’ve allowed in the last six months to Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service controversy. Since the story broke on Wednesday that aides to the New Jersey governor punished a local mayor’s lack of endorsement with a massive traffic jam, ABC, CBS and NBC have responded with 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage. Since July 1, these same networks managed a scant two minutes and eight seconds for the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.

In contrast, journalists such as Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos pounced on the developing Christie story. The GMA host opened the program on Thursday by announcing, “Chris Christie in crisis. Calls at this hour for the feds to step in, investigate the explosive e-mails.” [See a video montage below. MP3 audio here.]

Stephanopoulos later wondered, “One of the big questions right now, how much has it hampered his White House prospects?” Guest Matt Dowd insisted that, on a scale from one to ten, the controversy was already at a “four or five.”

On the CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley sounded a similar alarm: “Tonight, a potential presidential candidate caught up in scandal. E-mails show massive New Jersey traffic jams were engineered by aides to Governor Chris Christie as political payback.”

NBC Nightly News host Brian Williams immediately spun the story as a political pitfall for the possible presidential contender: “In a jam. A big problem for a man with big ambitions. Tonight, how a traffic nightmare on the world’s busiest bridge has spilled into a full blown scandal with the power to damage Chris Christie’s political future.”

Since Wednesday night, NBC included six reports over 14 minutes and 14 seconds. CBS devoted five reports over 12 minutes and 27 seconds. ABC managed 4 stories over seven minutes and 47 seconds.

As a comparison over the last six months, NBC featured a scant five seconds on updating the IRS story. CBS responded with a minute and 41 seconds. ABC produced a meager 22 seconds.

Although the media downplayed the IRS controversy from July through December (it first broke in May), it’s not as though there wasn’t much happening. As the Media Research Center documented, many potential story leads developed.

In December, House investigator Darrell Issa announced that the FBI and IRS chief counsel is stonewalling the investigation. In October, newly obtained e-mails showed that the scandal-plagued Lois Lerner, the woman at the center of the controversy, illegally gave Tea Party tax info to the FEC. That same month, it came out that an IRS official may have given confidential information to the White House.

These stories were buried by ABC, CBS and NBC, the same networks that have immediately deluged Republican Chris Christie, a 2016 contender, with coverage for his scandal.

Best Damned Governor in America

To any anti-gun weenies who are afraid of guns, and thus deeply aggrieved and offended by real men, AKA Conservative men this is for you. I hope you are so offended you cry yourself to sleep tonight

How many governors would take this picture? Certainly not New Jersey’s Stay Puff Marshmallow Man Yeah, exactly! H/T The Blaze

Best Damn Governor

No, the Virginia election was not a rejection of the Tea Party, it was a failure of the establishment GOP

The media, and of course Democrats will point to the defeat of Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governors election and say that this is a huge, massive, epic, and crippling defeat for the Tea Party, and Conservatism. And when they say that, they will be either lying or engaging in a bit of propaganda. If any entity failed in that race, it was the GOP leadership, which allowed Democrats to outspend them 10-1, and a finger of blame might also point at Chris Christie. Christie, with his reelection assured was asked, repeatedly, to come campaign for Kuccinelli. He declined, how is that for team work? Thanks Governor, really

By the way, it seems that Kuccinelli won among the middle class voters in Virginia, while McAuliffe won among the poor, and wealthy. I guess the duel Democratic strategies of make the rich feel guilty, and promise the poor you will give them everything worked. Odd, because those who will be hardest hit by McAuliffe’s Left wing policies will be those poor that were so busy voting with their hands out that they could not understand that the promises of leftism NEVER materialize.

 

Chris Christie, a little closer to admitting he is a Democrat every day

Guess who Governor RINO is blaming for a possible government shutdown. Go on, guess

Via Newsmax:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday “responsible Republican leaders” would not allow the government to shut down.

“That, by definition, is a failure. You’ve gotta work it out,” Christie, a Republican, said in a segment set to air Sunday on “CBS This Morning,” Politico reported.

Christie didn’t name any GOP politicians, but his remarks came the day after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz finished a 21-hour speech on the Senate floor advocating for the defunding of Obamacare. Both he and Cruz are seen as possible GOP contenders in the 2016 presidential race.”I think there’s got to be a solution other than that,” Christie said in the CBS episode, NJ.com reported. “I don’t think we should be doing that.”

“I think it’s always irresponsible if you’re running the government to be advocating for shutting it down,” Christie said.

Of course no Republican actually is advocating for shutting the government down, but Christie is playing politics here. Oh goodie, another politics over principles “Republican”

 

America, where illegal immigrants are treated better than Americans

Apparently enforcing laws on Americans is different than enforcing laws on illegal immigrants now

Two days after winning his party’s nomination for U.S. Senate Cory Booker is already pandering to La Raza. Senor Mayor has decreed that Newark, NJ will no longer detain illegal aliens.

The Newark Police Department has become the first law enforcement agency in New Jersey to refuse the federal government’s requests to detain people accused of minor crimes who are suspected of being in the U.S. illegally, according to immigration advocates.

In enacting the policy, Newark becomes the latest city to opt out of the most controversial part of the “Secure Communities” program implemented by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency in 2011, which allows the agency to ask local police to hold any suspect for up to 48 hours if their immigration status is called into question.

“Secure Communities” was designed to enhance ICE’s ability to track dangerous criminals who are undocumented immigrants. Under the policy the Department of Homeland Security reviews fingerprints collected by local police during an arrest, which then allows ICE to issue the detainer requests.

So if you’re an American citizen with outstanding parking tickets from East Nowhereville Idaho the Newark PD will run a warrant check and slap on the cuffs.

But if you swam across the Rio Grande and avoided paying taxes for the past 15 years they’ll send you on your way with an apology and a smile.

What is it with Democrats and selective enforcement of laws?

Of course as Chris points out, Steve Lonegan is running against Cory Booker. And surely, Ann Coulter’s favorite Republican, Chris Christie, who just happens to be Governor of New Jersey, will do all he can to help Lonegan win that Senate race right? AH, not so much

Because Christie plans to sit on his handswhile Steve Lonegan battles Cory Booker for Frank Lautenberg’s old Senate seat.

New Jersey governor’s allies say he will offer an endorsement, but no campaign appearances or fundraising help.

An endorsement to whom?

Please tell me he isn’t going to endorse Booker. Please?

Don’t hold your breath Wysocki.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie finds himself in an awkward situation as he mulls whether to offer any support to his party’s tea-party Republican Senate nominee, Steve Lonegan, against his Democratic friend and off-and-on political ally, Cory Booker.

Lonegan, who cruised to victory in Tuesday’s Republican primary, has a frosty relationship with Christie, dating back to his primary challenge to the governor in the 2009 campaign. Just this week, Lonegan earned a public scolding from Christie for his campaign’s racially tinged tweet attacking Booker. “This is a governor who calls it like he sees it,” said a source close to Christie. “When Steve Lonegan says something and reporters want the governor’s reaction, he’ll tell people what he thinks.”

Chris Christie, closer to saying “the Republican Party left me” every day.

Another day, another stupid comment from Crazy Legs Matthews

First here is the statement

CHRIS MATTHEWS: “The good thing going for Cory Booker, if he’s the candidate, Steve, is that we don’t have any African Americans in the United States Senate, which I think is a disgrace. You know, it’s one of the reasons I voted for my friend Michael Steele when he ran because I think we ought to have some. It’s absurd in this country, it’s absurd, Steve.”

Anyone spot the glaring problem with that statement? I guess Matthews never heard of Senator Tim Scott? To be fair Matthews catches his mistake, but what about the overtly racist comment he makes? Admitting he votes based on skin color? What about judging on character and not color?

George Soros loves him some Chris Christie

Christie giving the obligatory “The GOP left me” speech just got a tad closer

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows.

The checks are flying into the Republican governor’s war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley.

 

 

Useful Idiot of the Month at Conservative Hideout

Yep, it is the end of another month, which means Matt needs your help to pick a Useful Idiot

The people have spoken, and we now have the nominees for the Useful Idiot of the Month Poll.  Unforeseen events prevented me from posting the poll until today, so we will leave it up until Midnight Sunday PST.  Here are your nominees…

Adam Levine:  Nominated by our own contributor Don.

I nominate Adam Levine for saying he hates his country:

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/05/29/adam-levine-says-hate-this-country-on-voice/

He did issue an apology, but only after getting all pissy on twitter, instead of offering an apology or even an explanation, he posted definitions of: “joke,” “misunderstanding,” and “humor less.”

Chris (soon to announce that he’s really a Democrat) Christie:  Made by our VRWC mate, Chris Wysocki of Wyblog fame.

Chris Christie, for his encore Brokeback Boardwalkperformance with Dear Leader.

Eric Holder: Nominated by our contributor and all aroumd good guy, of Asylum Watch.

I’m going with Eric Holder for attacking Obama’s watercarriers.

John McCain:  Tagged by both Bunkerville, and our very own Manahattan Infidel.

I will go with McCain. The fool is doing his best to be just that. And the fool just might get some Americans killed.

McCain, a founding RINO, all the way.

Then, your humble editor feels compelled to add  one more:  the#FreeKate supporters, because nothing says cultural Marxism like legalizing pedophilia!

 

Chris Christie and Obama sittin’ in a tree….

The Bromance continues between the Governor of Joisey, and President Obama, and Chris Wysocki is not pleased with Christie sitting next to the National dietician 

 

snagging the coveted seat next to Michelle Obama at this weekend’s Governor’s Ball.

Gov. Chris Christie and President Obama have been in “an extended hugfest” since their bipartisan showing during Hurricane Sandy, reports The Atlantic Wire.

Perhaps that’s the reason Christie scored a coveted seat to the right of Michelle Obama at the Governor’s Ball on Sunday night?

Gag me with a spoon.

Exit question, how much advice will Michelle Obama give Christie about eating his vegetables?

Chris Christie, Andrew Cuomo’s kind of Republican

Just another politician, all about himself

Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), who is widely expected to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, may have justharmed his chances by signifying his support for the policies of ultra-liberal New York governor – and possible 2016 Democratic opponent – Andrew Cuomo. Talking with union leader Larry Bulman, political director for United Association of Plumbers, Pipefitters and Steamfitters, Christie reportedly said, “I’m not much different from Andrew Cuomo. I probably agree with him on 98% of the issues.”

Christie leans liberal on a myriad of issues. While he maintains that he supports traditional marriage, that position is clearly malleable for him; he grandstands when it comes to federal disaster funding; he has ties to groups that are questionable in terms of Islamism; his anti-union rhetoric masks the fact that he gets along quite well with most of the unions in his state, including the much-maligned teachers unions; he blasts the NRA on a regular basis.

Ben Shapiro might be right, maybe this is just posturing for a 2016 run, I wonder if Ann Coulter will endorse him again? But, to me, this is the type of political gymnastics Americans are sick of, especially Republicans. Give us a candidate that says what they mean and means what they say! CONSISTENCY damn it!

 

Rand Paul for President?

I would be happy to see him in the race frankly. We need a real Conservative who can deliver the Conservative message in a positive manner, Paul fits that bill I think. Sure the media would try to trash him, as they do any Conservative who even thinks about running, and the Dems would bring out the Extremist Card to play, but so what. Frankly, I think it is too early for talking about 2016, remember we DO have the 2014 mid terms next year, but frankly, traffic is slow today, and a bit of Rand Paul can only help.

Looking at 2016, I hope that we can for ONCE have a field of Conservatives without a Moderate to screw it up, why yes, I am talking to you Chris Christie. And I hope that field of Conservatives can debate without trying to destroy each other with unimportant issues or emotionalistic tactics, and yes, that is meant for you Michelle Bachman And PLEASE, Ann Coulter just shut up this time, we really do not need you telling us who CAN, or CANNOT win. Sorry for the negative tone, but, I am sick, and also tired of Conservative candidates picking each other off so that we get struck with the candidate the Democrats WANT to run against. And yes, that means you Mitt, and you Mr. Maverick. Finally, I want, more than anything, for a candidate’s record, and accomplishments to matter, not style. Yes, I am talking to you GOP voters!

While I am at it, let me add a list of GOP candidates I do not want to see run

Mike Huckabee, do I really have to explain why?

Jeb Bush

Chris Christie. He is the fatter, less tan Charlie Crist

Sarah Palin. the media would make a circus out of this, I do not think she could win.

Jeb Bush, yes, I already said his name once but I REALLY do not want him to run.

Joe Scarborough. Do we really want that tool running?

Rick Santorum. Two words sweater vests! Plus he is a whiner.

ANY “Moderate Republican”.

Newt Gingrich. I said him just to aggravate Ed Daley.

 

Remember when I said Chris Christie would be a Democrat in five years?

Well, here is another sign of his “evolution” that Chris Wysocki noted

Who’s side is Chris Christie on? Because the Democrats will surely turn his tirade against John Boehner and the GOP into must-see-TV in the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections.

Gov. Chris Christie ripped into House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) today for delaying a vote on billions in federal aid for recovery from Hurricane Sandy.

“There’s only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: The House majority and their speaker, John Boehner,” said Christie at a press conference this afternoon.

Christie, who gave the keynote address at the Republican National Convention last summer, said Congress traditionally puts politics aside for disaster relief but that House Republican leadership had put politics “before our oaths to serve our citizens.”

“For me it was disappointing and disgusting to watch,” said Christie, who praised New Jersey’s own House delegation. “Last night the House of Representatives failed that most basic test of public service and they did so with callous indifference to the suffering of the people of my state.”

Wow.

Hmmmm, Charlie Crist, Chris Christie, similar names……, similar political paths? Maybe we should just automatically distrust any Republican with the name Crist, or Christie, or anything similar no? Remember Christine Todd Whitman?

Lisa “Job Killer” Jackson resigns as EPA head, New Jersey blogger hardest hit

Word from Chris at Wyblog is that Lisa Jackson might be seeking Chris Christie’s job soon

Her work at the EPA is done. Jeff Dunetz chronicles Lisa Jackson’s “achievements”.

In her almost 4-year tenure we can thank Jackson’s work for the prevention of the Keystone Pipeline, the loss of thousands of Jobs in the coal industry, Punishing Oil Refineries for not using an ingredient that doesn’t exist, preventing the use of our own energy resources and don’t forget her biggest “victory,” declaring human exhalation a pollutant (farting also).

Word is she’s heading home to run for governor of New Jersey. Because we need a real job-killer back in Trenton, and if anyone knows about killing jobs it’s Richard Windsor Lisa Jackson!

I guess Chris is concerned that Jackson might do for Jersey what Governor Granholm did for Michigan, or what Governor Moonbeam is doing for California Taxifornia, and he ought to be concerned. This crew of Leftists is apparently set on destroying American jobs, and any hope for energy independence. Of course, they would tell us they have a better idea, more “green energy”, higher taxes, more regulations, and of course more dependence on government. What could possibly go wrong?

Fat Bastard Chris Christie Criticized For Being A Fat Bastard By Leftist Media Clown (Video)

N.J. Gov. Chris Christie Criticized For His Weight, Yet Again – Red Alert Politics

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s critics are once again attacking him for his largesse.

The most recent attack came from ABC’s Barbara Walters during an interview for her annual “Most Fascinating People” special.

In the interview, a clip of which played on ABC’s “Good Morning America” today, Walters rudely asks the Republican Governor about how his weight would affect his ability to serve as President should he decide to run and be elected.

“OK, governor, I feel very uncomfortable asking this question when I’m sitting opposite you, but you are a little overweight,” Walters told Christie.

“More than a little,” Christie responded.

“Why?” Walters brazenly asked.

“If I could figure that out, I’d fix it,” Christie said.

“There are people who say you couldn’t be president because you’re so heavy,” Walters continued.

“That’s ridiculous. I mean, that’s ridiculous,” Christie tells her. “I don’t know what the basis for that it is.”

Walters: “I think they’re worried about your health.”

Christie: “Well I’ve done this job pretty well. I think people watched me for the last number of weeks during Hurricane Sandy doing 18-hour days and getting back up the next day and still being just as effective in the job so I don’t think that will be a problem.”

.

.
The loud-mouthed governor, who has been much aligned throughout his political career for his girth, was included in Walters’ “Most Fascinating People of 2012″ list for his superb reaction to Superstorm Sandy in late October, which devastated the Garden State and its infamous shoreline.

Christie’s approval numbers have surged among Jersey voters in the past seven weeks since the storm. The aggregate approval rating for the governor is 73 percent, according to Talking Points Memo’s PollTracker.

Governor Christie is up for reelection in November, and is currently the heavy favorite (no pun intended) to win. He holds a double-digit lead over popular Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who is a rising star in the Democratic Party and the candidate believed to have the best chance of making the race competitive next fall.

While New Jersey residents may have a more favorable opinion of their Chief Executive than they did before the hurricane, not everyone in his own political party is currently enamored with him. Many conservatives have tried to pin some of the blame for Mitt Romney’s loss in last month’s presidential election on the New Jersey governor, citing his decision to publicly appear with President Obama while touring areas devastated by the storm and to forgo attending a rally in suburban Philadelphia 72-hours before Election Day as reasons the former Massachusetts Governor came up short.

Americans planning to watch the special in full tonight may have to DVR it. Tonight is also the “12-12-12” Concert at Madison Square Garden to benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy in Christie’s home state of New Jersey as well as New York and Connecticut. The concert will be headlined by several local acts, including John Bon Jovi, Billy Joel and Christie’s favorite musician, Bruce Springsteen.

Storm victim finds out how important she really is to our glorious leader

I feel badly, very badly for this woman’s problems. But, the fact is that she was used as a photo-op by the president, and once she was no longer needed? Well, under the Obama Magic Bus she went

Via NorthJersey.com:

Donna Vanzant struggled through flooded streets and downed power lines two days after superstorm Sandy to reach the ravaged marina she owns in Brigantine.

Secret Service agents were combing the area when she finally arrived, and by the time the afternoon was over, she had met President Obama and shared an emotional hug with him.

The following morning, the image of that embrace, top right, appeared on the front page of The Record and was published and broadcast by news outlets around the world.

I was fortunate enough to be in the pool of news photographers who accompanied the president on his tour of the devastation along the Jersey Shore, and among those who got to photograph Vanzant’s presidential encounter.

I returned to Brigantine last week to see how she was doing.

All but one of the boats in her North Point Marina that were pushed as far as three blocks away by the storm surge have now been recovered, but there is much left to do. Vanzant estimates that her business losses will amount to at least $500,000, including the cost of repairing the marina.

She said she was honored to meet Obama, but she is also frustrated that she has yet to receive help from either her insurance companies or the government. “The president told me I would get immediate help,” she said.

“Looking back on it, it wasted a lot of people’s time,” she said of the visit.

Democrats are like the person who uses whatever they can to get you in bed, and then bolts once they get what they wanted! Wake up America!

 

So, how long until Chris Christie is saying that the Republican Party left him?

I am not sure who said it, but recently, someone opined that the New Jersey Governor will one day complete his metamorphosis into a full blown Democrat. I was not sure that was right, but, when you add Christie’s pro-gun control beliefs with his throwing Romney under Hurricane Sandy for photo-ops with Obama, well, the direction that Christie seems to be taking is troubling. Chris, who lives in New Jersey, is starting to have doubts too.

Raise gas or ice prices more than 10% during a hurricane? Chris Christie will go after you with the full power of the law at his back.

But afterwards? Afterwards he’ll talk about raising taxes, because there’s no such thing as price gougingwhen government needs money.

Homeowners in towns hit hard by Hurricane Sandy could be in for an unpleasant surprise on their property tax bills.

Gov. Chris Christie said today that he expects property taxes to go up in towns that need extensive rebuilding.

“They’re probably going to have higher taxes,” said Christie. “It’s got to be paid for. This goes back to the old magic money tree. There’s no magic money tree.”

C’mon Christie! Your new bestest buddy Barry would beg to differ. He promised his peeps a magic money tree. They voted for a magic money tree. You can’t be dissing Prez BO! That’s like racist or something.

Yeah, one hug from Dear Leader is all it took to turn Governor Awesome into Robby RINO, tax hiker extraordinaire. Remember that tax cut Christie promised us earlier this year? Kiss it goodbye.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said he isn’t sure whether he’ll still pursue a tax cut that was the centerpiece of his economic strategy because Hurricane Sandy may have hurt state revenue in October and November.

At times like this, I cannot help but think about Ann Coulter who once said that unless the GOP nominated Christie, we would get stuck with Mitt Romney and would lose. Then she said that Romney was our ONLY hope when more Conservative candidates were still viable, and would have benefited from a Coulter endorsement. Odd isn’t it? The guy that Coulter backed first ended up helping give Obama a big PR win hurting the second guy Coulter endorsed. And people wonder why I am not especially impressed by Coulter?

And, a note to Chris up in Joisey, there is lots of room here in Texas, and our governor, well his record speaks volumes, he IS the real deal!

Hey, whadda ya know, Ann Coulter WAS right about Mitt after all

Remember this from Ann Coulter? Milton Wolf does

Sometimes you’re right but for the wrong reasons. Still, as we sift through the postmortems of this election and the last-minute effect of Chris Christie’s bromance with Barack Obama, remember that he was Ann Coulter’s first choice for Republican nominee.

Yep, Ann the Conservative, sure liked two less than Conservative guys in 2012.

 

Who am I most upset with this morning?

Well, it is quite a list to be sure. Let’s see here

Gary Johnson voters, yep, throwing away their votes instead of backing the candidate that could unseat Obama.

The GOP establishment for, once again, playing it safe.

The Romney campaign for going on cruise control after the first debate.

The media? Hell yes, for NOT covering Benghazi, NOT covering Fast and Furious like they should have, and for making Obama look like a hero after Sandy, and for painting Romney as some rich, out of touch, greedy man with no compassion

Chris Christie? Yes, we get it Chris you met the Boss, but you bromance act with Obama? Not what we needed there jelly boy

The voters who are  too lazy to actually do any research, or are just voting for free stuff, or who are naive enough to buy into the Democratic tactic of fear mongering or voting because of skin color? Good grief!

Yes, upset with all those people, but, oddly enough, the first name that crossed my mind when the results started looking bad was Chief Justice John Roberts. Because of that spineless bastard playing politics rather than doing his duty, we will be shackled with ObamaCare now. There is no escaping that albatross around our necks, even if the 2014 midterms were to give both houses to the Republicans, it is too late. Oddly enough, it will be ObamaCare that will finally wake up many Americans to the horrors we are in for. But, tragically, that wake up call will be too late.

One more question, about turnout. Obama got 10 million FEWER votes than in 2008, yet, Romney got two million less than McCain? What about all the polls that showed GOP enthusiasm up? Why would fewer Republicans go vote? I get lots of Obama voters from 2008 not voting, but Republicans? This does not make any sense.

Finally, one apology is in order here, no, make that three apologies. To the Founders, we let you down, we failed. Too many of us fell for the lies of Leftism. Too many of us have been seduced by the false promises of Marxism. Yes, Mr. Franklin, you gave us a Constitutional Republic, no, we could not keep it.

To our military, who have defended us for 250 years, who gave all so we could be free. Sadly, we took their sacrifice and embraced not liberty, but rather, a slow march to Statism.

Finally to God, who blessed us with natural rights, and with men who founded this nation, and gave us our constitution. Too many of us failed to weigh what a blessing those natural rights are, and have increasingly rejected those liberties for things we think we are somehow entitled to.

The next time a Liberal politician tells you how much they care about people……….

Remember how Liberals like Nanny Bloomberg treated the people after Sandy. The Lonely Conservative has the details

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers remain cold, hungry and in the dark after Hurricane Sandy, but Michael Bloomberg has decided to go ahead with the New York City Marathon. This is unbelievable. They have three massive generators for the media tent, and they will need to divert police to the marathon away from where they are really needed.

The three diesel-powered generators crank out 800 kilowatts — enough to power 400 homes in ravaged areas like Staten Island, the Rockaways and downtown Manhattan.

Since emergency executive orders have been issued, the governor, mayor — or even President Obama — could take the generators for a more important use, explained Pace University law professor Bennett Gershman. …

But plenty in the city wish they had taken such decisive action. After all, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie postponed Halloween for safety reasons, so Gov. Cuomo or Mayor Bloomberg should issue an executive order for lifesaving generators.

“We’re struggling here, and we want the city to know that,” Councilwoman Margaret Chin of Chinatown said yesterday.

She asked the Office of Emergency Management on Tuesday for a generator to run pumps to get water to stranded seniors.

“They’re telling me there are other priorities,” Chin said. (Read More)

The article goes on to note that the manager of a Staten Island Hilton Garden Inn said they will not honor marathon reservations if it means having to throw out those displaced by the storm.

The people running the marathon say that the generators are not owned by the city or the government, so they aren’t diverting resources. But they are using NYPD flatbed trucks which were being used to transport people who were stranded until they were recalled to carry the barricades that line the marathon.

Needless to say, people in Staten Island are outraged.

Molinaro urged New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Wednesday to cancel Sunday’s New York City Marathon. The race’s staging area is on Staten Island and Molinaro said it would be “crazy, asinine,” to have the race after what has happened.

“My God. What we have here is terrible, a disaster,” Molinaro said Wednesday. “If they want to race, let them race with themselves. This is no time for a parade. A marathon is a parade. Now is the time to put your shoulder to the wheel. If they want to prepare for something, let them prepare for the election, not a marathon.”

“Do you realize how many police officers you need for a marathon?” he asked. “There are people looting stores on Midland Avenue. There is looting taking place in the homes on the South Shore that were destroyed. That is where we need the police.”

This should not surprise anyone, Statists like Bloomberg care nothing about people. They care about power, and control, and their own benefit, but people? Bloomberg has no regard for people.
