WH: Don’t Drag us into Bloomberg’s Marathon FUBAR

The race is now can­celed accord­ing to the AP, but this is too hilar­i­ous nonetheless.

White House press sec­re­tary Jay Car­ney said Fri­day that any deci­sion about the New York City marathon should be left to local officials.

Pres­i­dent Obama is focused on mobi­liz­ing “an unprece­dented fed­eral response” to Hur­ri­cane Sandy, Car­ney told reporters on Air Force One.

We engage with state and local offi­cials and rely on them to tell us what their needs are,” Car­ney said. “Deci­sions at the state and local level are made appro­pri­ately by state and local officials.”

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been crit­i­cized for vow­ing to con­tinue with the annual New York City marathon just days after a dev­as­tat­ing storm killed dozens and crip­pled the city.

Just remem­ber folks, that Bloomberg endorsed Obama just this week, with the media claim­ing he was the wis­est, non-partisan polit­i­can in the country.

What­ever.  Bloomberg’s an arro­gant bil­lion­aire / ego­tis­ti­cal jack­ass who thinks he is the true King of New York.  Why the hell he thought “nor­malcy” could be returned so soon with a marathon race with half the city still with­out power.

How exactly was Bloomberg going to jus­tify going into Staten Island for a race — the NYC Marathon tra­di­tion­ally hits all five bor­oughs — when much of the place is still a dis­as­ter area?  He’s an over-glorified idiot, Bloomberg is.  No won­der he backed Obama just because of “Global Warming.”
