Now we learn that in the months before Hurricane Sandy, FEMA sold off temporary shelters at bargain basement prices. Now, in Sandy’s wake, FEMA will purchase new shelters — although the “old” ones had only been used once, if at all — presumably at top dollar. Your tax dollars at work . . .

It’s hard to understand how President Bush was somehow responsible for every mistake and inefficiency associated with Hurricane Katrina, while somehow, all the Sandy-related disasters — many still ongoing more than two weeks later — have nothing to do with President Obama.
