Sandy Victim, Donna Vanzant: Abandoned by Obama

Obama has left a trail of broken promises.

He promised to help victims from Hurricane Sandy, like Donna Vanzant.

This image of Obama embracing Vanzant was shared around the world to show his alleged compassion.

With the storm hitting the week before the election, Obama benefited politically by the embrace with Donna Vanzant.

What's terribly sad is that Vanzant didn't receive the benefits Obama pledged to give.

She was used as a prop in a photo op.

From FOX News:

After Hurricane Sandy hit along the New Jersey Shore and throughout New York City, President Obama traveled to the affected area and delivered a message to both victims and the federal government, advising the fed to use “no bureaucracy, no red tape … get resources where they’re needed as fast as possible.” To the victims, he promised assistance. “We are standing behind you and we are going to do everything we can to help you get back on your feet.”

It was that same day that an emotional embrace between the president and a New Jersey businesswoman, Donna Vanzant, was caught on camera and shared around the world. It’s a photo of which Vanzant now says, “It’s frustrating for me that that picture is even out there right now.”

...“I was very excited and felt warmed by the embrace, thinking, ‘This is really gonna happen, I’m going to get the help I need, because you promised that,’ and it’s been almost a month now and I’ve gotten no help,” she said.

Believe it or not, because the destruction was caused by the storm waters rising in a flood instead of falling down, financial assistance from insurance has been null. Vanzant says her only option offered by FEMA was to ‘get a loan’ at six percent interest, but she says she wouldn’t be able to make the monthly payments at such a rate.
Obama exploited her.

He has no shame.

I'm glad the victim is telling her story. Don't look for her to be interviewed on MSNBC.

Here's video.
