    Katrina basically took Bush out of office. Here we are, over 5 days after the event, and there are still people with no homes, no food or water, no clothes. Where's the media? Oh yeah, they're busy covering Obama's campaign.

    Exactly. Even Christie praised Obama for his swift response in helping NJ. He even told the 3 talking heads at Faux News that he wasn't interested in taking Romney on a tour of the state because nows not the time for political grandstanding. You should have seen the look on their faces. It was priceless. Somebody should post a link to the clip..

    Maybe because Bush really did drop the ball, and FEMA officials were emailing jokes to each other. Plus, I don't think anyone has died(yet) in Sandy because of lack of emergency help.
    Move this to political, butthole

    Haha thanks for posting that. The actual clip is a little longer but it was refreshing to see a member of their own party finally for once give those three 3 talking head Kool aid pushers a dose of reality for a change, lol.

    He didn't? It's five days after, and he's campaigning. Nowhere to be found on the east coast. There are people that have no homes, food, water, shelter, clothes, etc. They're finding more bodies everyday. And he's busy campaigning? He still is in charge, isn't he?

    Obama responded immediately to tour & send help to NJ. NYC Mayor Bloomberg specifically requested he NOT tour NY because it would divert too much manpower to security & traffic control. Nevertheless Obama has sent FEMA, federal funds and pre-signed disaster declarations beforehand thus eliminating any bueracratic red tape. Sheesh..

    Katrina took Bush out of office? How about the fact that he had served two terms already?

    the media golden boy will never do wrong. the media usually drives all scandals/stories & if they dont report, the issue wont have legs & die a sudden death. the media is all powerful & controls the public interest regarding politics.once the media decided obama was a better liberal story than clinton in 2008, they turned on her quick & made sure obama got the nomination...it was really odd to witness the usually media favorites clintons go down in flames so fast against a really inexperienced guy with a spotty gov track record & a true liteweight in all political aspects.turnabout is fair play & i know the clintons are rooting for romney next week so they gat a shot at 2016. if the golden boy wins next week, 2016 is probably gonna be a cyclical party change especially regarding the economy so hillarys chances will be reduced greatly, just because..

    That's because Obama brought him a case of leftover Halloween candy and the fat bastard ate it all.
