President Obama promised to help victims of Hurricane Sandy after the storm ravaged the East Coast. But after meeting with the president, one Staten Island family says he has broken that promise. Scott and Deidre McGrath joined Fox and Friends to tell their heartbreaking story.
Scott spoke to the president after the storm, in what he described as a “staged” meeting. He said, “They put us into this tent and they wanted to make believe we were shopping for our products. Most of the residents that live in that area were never up there.”
After waiting on line, Scott was able to talk to President Obama. He recalled saying, “President Obama, you said you were going to cut the red tape. You lied. And he says, ‘what do you mean?’ I said, you lied … you said you were going to cut the red tape; it hasn’t been cut for the middle class. What are you giving us, the royal finger?”
Frustrated by their current situation, Scott said, “You got to blame the president, you got to blame the local politicians, you even got to blame the borough president of Staten Island.” He added, “Nobody really wants to hear it. It’s all, you know, they’re always passing the buck.”
When the president asked about his concerns, Scott said he told him about FEMA giving them the runaround and Bank of America wanting them to keep paying a mortgage. President Obama said there wasn’t much he could do about the bank, but referred Scott to two aides to help with FEMA.

This is what happens when half of the populace elects an Indonesian Marxist foreign exchange student to be president of a free nation. Barry-Barack Dunham-Davis-Soetoro-Obama's loyalty does not lie in the USA. We're scr#wed.
No. this is what happens when a bunch of racist a-holes like you demean the words of the President! Your previous post stated that you believe that the President is purposely ignoring Americans who were hurt by Sandy - and your reason was that he doesn't need the votes. That my friend, is about as cynical as one can get. The mere fact that you believe that makes me sad that you have such a warped view of everyday life. It's like you're in a bubble or something. THE PRESIDENT DOESN'T HAVE THAT KIND OF POWER OVER ANYTHING God - what is so hard for people to understand about this ****? Of course he can't force FEMA to cut through the red tape. IT DOESN'T WORK THAT ****ING WAY. Damnit people - brains . . . use them, learn about our government and how it does and doesn't function so then when you want to bitch you know WHO TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.
" Your previous post stated that you believe that the President is purposely ignoring Americans who were hurt by Sandy" You obviously do not get it! My beef with this illegal alien Barry Soetoro is bigger than the Sandy issues. He ignored Ambassador Chris Stevens plus 4 others and they were murdered. He ignored the fact the majority of Americans disapproved of his health care takeover and did not believe his LIE that it would cost the working people in higher taxes. He is presently ignoring that most Americans disapprove of his illegal drones flying into countries we are not at war with and killing their innocent civilians. This is just a tip of the list of reasons why I dislike this Traitor you leftists fraudulently elected. Get your nose out of his a$$ for a minute and look at the big picture, tool.
Wow, I must have missed your post where you lectured all those people blaming the aftermath of the Katrina hurricane on George W. Bush! They totally demeaned and disrespected him. Can you direct me to your comments on that? I didn't think so. If illegal alien Barry-Barack cannot do something, then the mf'r needs to quit using people in misery for photo opportunities and lying to them about what he can or cannot do. Sidenote: Senator Barry Soetoro-Obama voted against sending aid to Katrina victimes, lmmfao!
