It’s Not Katrina

Katrina

So I’m seeing a lot of criticism this morning of The Kenyan Usurper from all the usual suspects, who are trying to make the flooding in LA into Obama’s Katrina. (Remember Chimpy singing happy birthday to Grandpa Walnuts as nearly 1,000 people drowned and over a million homes were destroyed, and FEMA not having any meaningful response? This flood is tragic, no doubt about it, but the scale is off by magnitudes.)

That Obama is not in Louisiana is almost the same sort of fecklessness that they see in him for not using the magic conjuring words, Radical Islamic Terrorism: it won’t make anything different, but hey! It’s a talking point now.

And of course, the Obama golf jokes write themselves:

Trump: “The president says he doesn’t want to come, he is trying to get out of a golf game.” (Not sure if he said this before or after handing out the Play-Doh.)

Tony Perkins (who’s home was flooded and has yet to realize Gawd is punishing him):
“I heard he wants to stay under par while we are under water.”

Anyway, FEMA is already working at flood relief, Gov. Edwards of Louisiana has asked the White House to NOT come there because it would use resources that could better be used elsewhere.

This is NOT Katrina, and anyone who tells you that it is is being really disrespectful of those who died a decade ago and trying to make cheap political points.

    Governor Edwards has also said the Feds have been completely responsive to Louisiana, which provides a strong contrast to the FEMA of Heckuvajob Brownie during the Bush reign of error.

    Many of us have seen the disruption that Presidential visits can cause. Louisiana has more critical things to do than accommodate a visit from Obama.

    My fire company relayed a call for volunteer firefighters during Katrina. The first step: Undergoing training on sexual harassment. By all means, train people to avoid sexual harassment while people were drowning.

    Thanks.

    The death toll of the current flooding is about eleven, while Katrina was over a thousand. This is nothing like Katrina. Plus, FEMA is actually working, funny how that Republican ‘government is the problem’ mentality leads to problems with government.

    Sometimes intellectual conservatism is pretty vapid. W didn’t play golf or go on vacation. No one in his administration used RNC servers and deleted anywhere between 5 & 20 million emails. No one outed a CIA agent. And my personal freshly minted favorite, this country was never attacked by terrorists until OBAMA became preznit so HE’s it. No pass backs. Ha ha ha.
