Bonehead President Tells People Without Power to Stay Informed With the Internet

Obama-Laughing

Another let them eat cake moment from the disengaged president.

When President Barack Obama urged Americans under siege from Hurricane Sandy to stay inside and keep watch on ready.gov for the latest, he left out something pretty important — where to turn if the electricity goes out.

Despite the heightened expectation of widespread power and cable television failures, everyone from the president to local newscasters seem to expect the public to rely entirely on the Internet and their TVs for vital news and instructions.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Meanwhile where is the help for Staten Island Mr. President Do-Nothing?

I'm a Grand Forks native and alumni of North Dakota. I want to be Rob Port when I grow up.

      How many days will your laptop or smart phone work without recharging it, anon? I guess you could always jog over to Mayor Bloomberg’s media tent and see if they would let you recharge them off their marathon generators?

  • Robert Portly

    In complete desperation to follow Rob Ports example of dissing the president this simple right wing dinger seems to have forgotten you can get the internet through the phone system. Yup dinger you can get a wifi system that will run from your car batter. Yes you can access the internet without AC power. Of course in the endless hopeless world of Port and his dolts generators are unknown. The distortion and lying is amusing. Low information people eat this right wing drivel up, but no person who reads a diversity of views would ever be taken in by the Port bunch. We should expect better spinning than this

    • http://Sayanythingblog.com The Whistler

      Most people don’t have the equipment to run their phones or computers off of a car battery if they even have one. I understand that many New Yorkers don’t own a car. Many people don’t have internet capable phones.

      Obama knows this or at least he should. But he doesn’t care.

            Amazon.com and Radio Shack have several Red Cross weather radios with a hand crank cell phone charger/USB port. We in North Dakota are in the middle of the fall sleet storm season and could be without power for extended periods. The facilities that serve cell towers are nearly always backed up with generators, one of these could keep your phone working.

          • http://Sayanythingblog.com The Whistler

            Makes sense, but the people in New York listening to Obama’s advice probably don’t have them already. Also whether they had generators in New York or not, the cell phone service was hard to get.

        • Onslaught1066

          Obama phones, The cell phone offers these in-demand features: voice-mail, text, three-way calling, call waiting, caller ID and access to 911.

          Most interestingly i found this as one of a very limited number of FAQs: What does One Per Household mean?

          I suspect that, for the most part, the kinds of people lining up for this are ones for whom this question does indeed need to be answered.

          I further suspect that for these same individuals it comes as a complete surprise when their phone suddenly stops working after hours of continual use whereupon they simply throw the phone away and order a new one.

        The people who really care are the people who will not move the country forward unless tax cuts for the rich are carved in stone. The people who really care want to destroy health care for the average working person. Who believes greed dogs care about anyone?

        • Gern Blanston

          Maybe if the Dems hadn’t been such morons when they had full control of Congress and the Presidency, they could have kept those majorities in 2010 and NOT extended the Bush tax cuts. But their moronic policies caused them to lose their control, and now they will lose the Presidency. Maybe instead of being morons they could work to convince Americans that their policies work. Here’s a tip: don’t do what you’ve been doing for the past 6 years since you took back Congress from the evil Republicans and started the steep increases in deficits.

      Exactly Robert!! Those crazy dingers think you need power for your computer and or routers to get information from our beloved Leader on the internet. Generators should be easy to come by as all you need to do is drive over to your neighborhood hardware store and just purchase one or borrow it. Or just use the DC power on your car, just let it idle all day to keep the battery from going dead. Even cell service that is spotty or non exisistant should be no problem to gain information from because all you need is hope from our Dear Leader but I am sure the dingers will say it is impossible with out “power”. The low information people just don’t get it. I just can’t understand what is so difficult? It is so simple.

      The Whister is a bonehead. Last year he referred to the NYT as The Obama Camp and then his stupid minions proceeded to defend him, trying to pretend he said “in his camp” when he was lying about The Obama Campaign.

      There just is no fixing stupid and these low information voters are about as dumb as they come. For most of them their stupidity is willful. All they can do is lie and make things up about people they don’t understand.

      • http://proof-proofpositive.blogspot.com/ Proof

        Still trying to rewrite history, Tiny Sociopath? You called Whistler “dumb”, because “everyone knows that camp is short for campaign” when he referred to the NYT being in Obama’s “camp”.

        Oh, and for the really mindnumbingly stupid among us, 2008 was not “last year”, you bonehead! Your projection, lies and utter stupidity are all duly noted, Tiny Hanni Boo Boo.

        • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

          Still lying about what was said, Proofoundly_dishonest?

          Here is what was said and clearly you can see by Whislter’s use he was phrasing this as if he was talking about The Obama Campaign.

          Hannitized

          Whistlingliesthroughtheteeth says:

          I think the Obama camp has learned that if you repeat the implausible lie often enough it works.

          “The Obama camp” has not said anything about the ad. The New York Times did.

          Stop attributing other things other people say to Obama, and his campaign. As Rob had stated “I’m getting a little tired of it”.

          Liars.

          Note my use of questions marks. It proves I was being specific. It was Whistler who blurred the lines.

        You got it all wrong as usual Sparkie. It is the dems who demand the feds do everything and they blamed Bush for Katrina — some even said he broke the levies.
