New York, NY - Brooklyn pols were apoplectic when FEMA’s list of counties eligible for disaster aid included every New York City borough but theirs. Borough President Marty Markowitz pronounced himself “dumbfounded.”

Some wondered whether President Barack Obama’s administration might be miffed with Brooklyn, where Orthodox Jews angry about his Israel policy hope to flip a congressional seat that was once solidly Democratic.

One Democratic officeholder wondered about Obama: “Maybe he realizes that [Assemblyman] Dov Hikind lives in Brooklyn?”

Let him be angry; who cares? In 14 months, he will be defeated for reelection, as was two other "friends of ours", namely Jimmy Carter, and George Herbert Walker Bush.

Don't think he gave it much thought or cares too much. He will carry New York anyway.

If anyone truly believes Obaman has even heard of Hikind, much less would seek to carve out his district for punishment because of Hikind's criticism of the Administration, they should go out an purchase a new "tin foil" streimel to better receive radio transmissions from the alien tea baggers who are coming to invade BP and willy. These nuts and bolts decisions are made by FEMA bureaucrats not politicians, and any effort to poltiicize the process would have been disclosed to the media and congress within nanoseconds. After Katrina, no federal career official would risk being part of a political scam related to emergency funding.

No doubt obama wants to send a message to orthodox jews. Just look at the comments on VIN on any article mentioning Obama, where he's constantly being downgrated by all blogers, including myself.
But then look at his approval rating accross the country where 72% are unsatisfied with him.

When you refer to "nuts and bolts decisions" do you mean like the Obamacare waivers that were handed out to Pelsoi's districts? All money handouts are political. If you think there isn't payback for criticism of the administration then you're smoking something considerably stronger than one of Barry Obama's rolled "cigarettes". Come election time, we'll have change we can believe in.

I think the question isn't who the President is angry at...that's irrelevant. The concern of the president should be why is Brooklyn angry at him. He's the public servant

If you study the short term waiver requests and approvals under the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) you probably wouldn't have made such a stupid comment. Over 92 percent of waiver requests were granted and the largest portion of those went to large employers such as McDonalds etc. who affirmed that they would have to stop offering low cost insurance coverage if they were subject to the requirements of the Act. The data are all posted on the HHS website so look for youself before you post teabag talking points which have been disowned by even the Republican congressional staff who follow these issues.

The question that should be asked is if Governor Cuomo has anything against Brooklyn. He's the one who made the request for a disaster declaration to the president.

Your obsession with teabags leads me to believe you have some other issues that need to be addressed. Good luck with that!

I don't understand how relief services where given to the other 4 boroughs but not Brooklyn. Are you for real? What is the real reason. I can't believe it. Is this really true? Why are people screaming about this, if it were true it would be grossly unfair.

You seem to have an overly inflated opinion of the importance of this news aggregation website. More to the point, you need to get out more.

To #'s 23 & 25- Thank you for your support regarding Meyerfreund-#14; I don't know if he intentionally misspelled the word "surprise" or the word "whether". However, at this point, I really don't feel that Obama cares if he loses the 2012 election or not. He will go through the motions, during next year's campagin; however, with high unemployment, and other economic problems, I think that the Republicans stand a very good chance of defeating him, although it will probably be a close election. In any event, when Obama leaves office, he will have a very promising and lucrative career on the lecture circuit, and receive at least $125,000 per speech. Therefore, why does he need the tsouris of being President?

Don’t worry about. Staten Island gets left out of things all the time. Brooklynites will get used to it.

B"H, there were downed trees, but no real water damage. However, if Brooklyn has the same level of damage as Queens, Staten Island or the Bronx, then there is an issue.

I am a firm believer of giving people enough rope to hang themselves with, and Obama's is doing a great job of putting his neck in a noose.

I wish people would stop bashing the Tea Party Movement. Their main goal is to return to the principles of the Constitution. I think it's totally necessary because power mongers like our current "president" behave as if they're above the law and need to be reminded what our country stands for.

The constitution that they want to return to is the constitution that was never written. The true constitution is not anything like the 'tea party''s goals and aspirations. We know. We've been following it for going on 300 years.
