MORE DEAD BODIES Discovered in Sandy’s Wake – Media Yawns – Obama Golfs

They’re finding more dead decomposing bodies in Hurricane Sandy’s wake.
But it’s not really news. The media couldn’t care less.

And Obama’s golfing.

The only reason the latest victim was found was because the stench was so great in the neighborhood.
The New York Post reported:

Hurricane Sandy’s latest victim may also be her loneliest.

Cops found the body of David Maxwell in his Staten Island home on Friday after it lay undiscovered for 11 days — with his neighbors thinking he had fled before the storm.

The 66-year-old lived alone with his cat — which also died — in the modest yellow, two-family house on Mapleton Avenue in Midland Beach. The home now stands in a flooded wasteland of trash, ruined furniture, mold and mildew.

“It’s so horrible,” said neighbor Dorothy Matthews, 71. “He was alone in the world except for his cat and his partner in the nursing home.”

“I don’t know who called it in, but it was probably someone who thought the smell came from rotting flesh,” she added. “It smelled so bad out here the past few days.”

The death of Maxwell, who friends said was a Marine who served in Vietnam, is the 23rd in the borough attributed to Sandy.

Citywide, Sandy’s death toll hit 43 yesterday as a 77-year-old Rockaways man was added to the list.

Maxwell’s partner, James McCormick, 72, recently suffered a stroke and resides in the Carmel Richmond Nursing Home.

McCormick’s caretaker, Irene Fontanez, came to the home yesterday to retrieve Maxwell’s book of stamps — his only prized possession.

“We were wondering why he hadn’t visited or called in so long,” she said. “He shouldn’t have been left here for so long.”

Neighbors said they checked on Maxwell, an avid stamp collector, the day the storm struck, but no one answered the door of his first-floor home, so they assumed he fled.

There is exactly one media report on this latest discovery.
Being Democrat has benefits.

    Looking at that picture, it looks like somebody Photoshopped a cigarette out of the right side of his mouth.

    I’m afraid that the only way we’ll get Obama and Mooch out of the White House is with an “exorcism.”

  • Carbon Pootprint

    Damn shame the storm couldn’t have gone into Manhattan and razed that chit hole nest of progressive traitors to the ground and left the rest of the city alone.

    When he gets thenext two appointments to the Supreme Ct, couynt on the Succession Amendment-tow terms only -being overturned. all this wtwaddle about who rund in 2016 is silly, Obama is going to run and win and run and win for years. He is our Somoza, He is our Trujillo…
    There are NY congressers working on scotching it.

  • Campfollower

    The victim was a Marine and Vietnam veteran. Just a bump in the road for Obama and the Democrats.

    How terribly sad, esp on Veterans Day.

    Sorta like Gateway Pundit, Hot Air, Drudge, and the GOP are yawning over the 140% plus voter turnout in St Lucie Florida. Our own side is just as good at ignoring important stories.

    I know. I get it. You don’t want to be thought of as one of those crackpots and risk your reputation as a “legitimate journalist”, right? So, you just bury stories like this.

    You’re no better than Chris Matthews.

    Well, it is said that you get the government you deserve.

    Hurricane Sandy and its victims served their purpose.

    Now let them eat cake (or more accurately, garbage).

    Obama has better things to do. /s

    In all honesty, I’d like to see someone come in and rescue all the kids, but leave all the adults in those heavily “D” states to deal with the consequences of their preference for “Big Government Solutions”.

    Elections have consequences, and if we keep bailing people out — even in tragic disasters like this — nobody will ever learn.

  • Sparky

    I keep saying that the media is an arm of the Democrat Party. Ignore this fact at your peril.

    Of course they are going to be Obama friendly and filter the news accordingly.

    That is why the Republican Party must only elect politicians who will openly call the media on their lies and bias.

    The question now is whether the Blue States will be able to successfully rob the Red States of State collected funds thru the collective might of the all powerful Federal Gov’t. This seems to have the potential to initiate a 2nd Civil War; between the fiscally sound and unsound States. It would be a war of raw, nakedfiscal confiscation. Why should we here in Indiana send our hard earned dollars to California and New York to pay for those people’s drugs and welfare as they lay on their lazy asses and get high all day? Socialism is nothing but robbery of workers to pay lazy bastards whose only job is to vote one day every 4 years. I wish Indiana would join Louisiana in contemplating secession. More people will come to this conclusion as this Gov’t robbery becomes more recognized.

    How is that hope and change working out for yah? Maybe they should start cleaning up themselves instead of waiting for government to help them.

    not much sympathy here, their states voted overwhelmingly for this, they knew exactly what they were getting.

  • dwd

    The bodies must not be minorities — that’s the only thing that would garner action by the media or Obama.
