(Newser) – Plummeting mercury will put "tens of thousands" of people out on the street, by way of making their unheated and storm-damaged homes uninhabitable, says New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "It's going to become increasingly clear" that cold temperatures are going to force out residents who have thus far refused to leave their homes; Michael Bloomberg says New York City estimates it will have to find emergency housing for between 30,000 and 40,000 people, reports the AP.

If the Obama and Romney really cared they would donate their millions of dollars in campaign money to the disaster relief and stay to lead the recovery.They both say they want to help the people of this country what a better way to walk the walk and not just talk the talk.

After the photo opt. Obama disappeared, and Cuomo said what a great job he and (FEMA) did, and Cuomo is a dumb ass too..... Where are the free trailers, the free gas, and free clothes and food, to give the poor WHITE folks in New Jersey? ..... Bush provided those things to the black welfare folks in New Orleans, and why isn't Obama providing the same, to the poor whites in New Jersey? ..... Sam Jack said, "wake the f__k up" Obama.
