Hurricane Sandy Worse than Katrina???

Sandy versus Katrina

Republican attack dog for the Mitt Romney campaign and former NY Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, is saying Obama's response to Hurricane Sandy is WORSE than Bush's response to Hurricane Katrina. What does Giuliani know that every other news outlet including NJ Governor Chris Christie who have been at ground zero surveying the damages and seeing FEMA at work - don't know? Answer - Rudy Giuliani is a blowhard and knows nothing.

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani isn’t exactly famous for his tact, but he kicked his penchant for overstatement into overdrive this Sunday, twice falsely claiming that the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) response to Hurricane Sandy was worse than its botched response to Hurricane Katrina under President George W. Bush.

Speaking at a Romney campaign office in Florida, Giuliani said “[Obama] right now is doing a terrible job of disaster relief in my city, but no one is talking about it…People don’t have water, they don’t have food, electricity and his FEMA is no where to be found. This is a worse response than Katrina.” He also levelled the charge during a Fox News appearance, telling host Neil Cavuto that the notion FEMA was doing a good job was a “joke:”

Giuliani’s view is at odds with the assessment of virtually every other observer of the agency’s performance during the two storms. While the Bush Administration’s famously incompetent response to Katrina delayed the provision of critical federal aid by days and poorly distributed it, FEMA had 1,500 well-organized workers on the ground the day after Sandy hit, which former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security and FEMA critic Paul Rosenzweig called “a massive and admirable [sic] effort.” The New York Times reported that after Bush’s FEMA became “a symbol of pitiful incompetence” post-Katrina, the agency’s recent efforts have “done much to shore up its image” among experts on disaster response and in Congress. Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT), who chairs the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said that “FEMA is a very different organization than it was during Katrina…[FEMA] was proactive, and it didn’t used to be. It doesn’t wait for the storm to hit; it pre-positions personnel, equipment, food supplies, water, etc.” Link

Let's see - current death toll count of Hurricane Sandy = over 100 people.
Death toll of Katrina = over 1,800 people.

President Obama visited NJ on Oct 31 (2 days after the storm).
President Bush visits LA, MS, AL on Sep 2, 2005 (4 days after the storm).
Even today, New Orleans is still rebuilding 7 years after Katrina.
Bush even admitted that Katrina was one of his BIGGEST FAILURES of his administration.

Giuliani is becoming so insignificant - since he is the only one COMPLAINING about Obama and FEMA's response only days left before Election Day. Political? Oh Yes!

You have your 9/11 trophy - stop running your mouth off and pushing your ego for more attention. You are a has been! Go home!
