This event was to be a political event for politicians to take advantage of.
However, the photo ops turned into cries of gasoline and electrical power
shortages.Life goes on for those that have a plan as others will be
part of those plans. We live in a great nation with a power that comes from the
people every election day. If they choose the easy way out, it may, in the long
run be the hard way out. People can choose to vote or not vote, to vote for
their candidate based on study and facts or for who others say to vote for and
live with the consequences, good or bad.Marathon in a city that
limits french fries, soda, and how many people can ride in a car on a bridge is
a great day in November with electricity out when the temperatures are 20
degrees at night. Priorities can change with the vote of the people
approaching. New York City is a great place to have Les Miserables, the true
meaning in French and not just fries for the day in New Jersey or
Philadelphia.New York signifies the Statue of Liberty and freedom
George,I've lived in both states. I know liberals when I see
The mayor may have ended up with having to cancel this event but I am sure the
President didn't want anything more negative about this storm after action
more than it is now. The Governor didn't want more than 3 people in a car,
no large sugar Cokes, but still pass out birth control.Politics and
social paths do cross the bridge. It is interesting to see the spins on the
morning programs with the President's campaigns twist numbers.
@three Spoken like a true arm chair quarterback with no idea what is
happening on the ground.@worf Bloomberg and Chrisie are both
republicans and by any other standard then the reddest of the red states in the
union not liberals.
3grandslams,These people elected liberals.
Sandy is the perfect example why we can't depend on the government for
help. To many people are screaming where is the government. We have become to
dependent on the decions and policies of elected officials. The bigger
government grows the less it can truly help us.
Was there even any doubt that this event should not have been canceled? With so
many streets and roads and rail systems out of operation is seems dumb to think
of putting thousands of runners on the streets of NY as it need all roads for
emergency responders to help people recover. His hesitation is about as ugly an
act that can be committed by a foolish and selfish Mayor. The power
of the tax revenuers is overwhelming and the corruption politicians will commit
to get their hands on it. Nothing is more sacred to them than collecting taxes,
even if they have to kill people to get it.
The mayor didn't want a cloud hanging over the event. Too late, dude!
