Following Hurricane Katrina, liberals blasted President Bush for what they saw as his refusal to help the residents of New Orleans, despite the fact that the-then Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, caused 95% of the problem by not asking for federal assistance before it was too late.
Now that President Dipshit is in office, he continues the bashing of President Bush, with ridiculous points on the official White House website:
ADDITIONAL ISSUES: Katrina
President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.
President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration's "unconscionable ineptitude" in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims.
Wow - "unconscionable ineptitude"?
And remember how rap singer/bitter asshole Kanye West went on tv and said that "President Bush hates black people"?
Well, in that vein, let us speed ahead to now - and the fact that tens of thousands of people in Kentucky are sitting without electricity, and that 40 people have died.
Where is President Retard? He is busy visiting schools in DC. He is busy holding interview sessions with reporters in the White House. He is busy covering up for Tom Daschle, American thief.
So, how has the media responded to the first weather disaster of this administration? With a yawn and a "what weather disaster?"
We hate to say it, but it must be true: Obama hates Southerners. And, it is painfully clear that Obama also hates white people and wants them to freeze to death.
Storm response gets mixed reviews
President Barack Obama’s first federal disaster response to ice storms across the heartland netted mixed results for an administration that has pledged after Hurricane Katrina to “never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.”
More than 40 people were killed, and millions were left without power across Appalachia and the Ozarks in the wake of severe winter weather that began last week. Kentucky was the hardest hit, with 12 people killed by the storm.
A federal emergency was declared in the state Wednesday night as Obama began working the phones and pushing for a rapid response, but help to victims in some areas was slow to come. Vast areas of the state remained without electricity Monday.
“It took quite a bit of time” to get additional aid, said Randall Smith, the emergency management director for Grayson County, Ky. “The response in the first four days was very unsatisfactory.”
All of Grayson County was without power through the weekend, and by Monday afternoon, only 30 percent of residents had regained electricity. The biggest problem for local officials was getting enough water for people in shelters and caring for local residents with special needs.
There is a disconnect with the media. It must be because Obama doesn't want to help a state that he lost in the election. Now maybe if it was New York, or California, perhaps then he would respond, because, after all, he needs those votes in 2012. Otherwise, his message to people is: FUCK YOU. DIE.
