Quote:.....Kevin Wexler, who wrote the article, explains that he was present when the initial promise was made and recently chose to check in on Vanzant’s progress:

Vanzant estimates that her business losses will amount to at least $500,000, including the cost of repairing the marina.
Her son Stephen, 26, took a two-week leave from the Navy to come home to help out. He has started a Facebook page called Rebuild North Point Marina to seek contributions.
Vanzant has been moved by the many kindnesses she received from friends, family and customers. She heard from countless people after the photograph of her hug with the president was published, including from strangers as far away as Vietnam who wished her well.
She said she was honored to meet Obama, but she is also frustrated that she has yet to receive help from either her insurance companies or the government. “The president told me I would get immediate help,” she said.

“Looking back on it, it wasted a lot of people’s time,” she said of the visit. [Emphasis added]
Wexler adds that Vanzant’s future remains in the air.

“I am just moving minute by minute,” she said, “because the insurance companies are telling me no, no, no!”

I'm really not surprised that O made all of these great appearances and promises before the election and now isn't living up to a single one - and is backtracking on some as well.

It looks like people are finding out sooner rather than later exactly who they re-elected.
I wish I could tell her, face to face, that now that you gave him the vote he was looking for, he's got no more use for you.

Eh, she's still hoping for that change.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Unfortunately, I fear that within the next four years we will all have change... and no dollars to go with them.
