It’s like a Katrina rerun, with Obama as Bush, Bloomberg as Ray Nagin, and Staten Island as the 9th Ward. Only the press is going light on the President this time. . . .
I'd like to note a possible cause for Staten Island's unsatisfactory treatment. Guess how Staten Island residents vote in presidential elections. Guess which party Staten Island supported for president in the last two presidential elections and in ten of the last thirteen? (Scroll about halfway down.)
