The trouble-plagued giveaway began when Gov. Cuomo’s office announced in the morning that officials would try to ease the post-Sandy gas crisis by giving out free fuel to both “emergency vehicles and the general public.”
The gas was to be dispensed from trucks at five locations around the area — and throngs of desperate drivers showed up to fill their tanks.
A Cuomo-administration source blamed the mix up on the military.
“They told us. We simply conveyed the information provided by them,” the source said. “We had nothing to do with the execution. We didn’t select the sites. It wasn’t our trucks. It wasn’t our people. It’s not our fault.”
It can’t be anyone’s fault in the world of progressivism because actions are judged by intention, not results. Obama himself once recognized that price affects demand when he promised to raise gasoline for Americans to $8 per gallon. So why would he think that giving away gasoline would be a good idea?
Two more days.
