Remember when Obama claimed 10,000 people died in the Kansas twister and blamed Bush for states not having the resource to respond?
Obama pledged in the 2008 campaign, that “the federal government needs to be a strong, swift, effective partner with state governments in dealing with disasters.”
That was then, this is now. Chairman O turns up the thermostat in the White House to 78 degrees and munches on $100 a pound Wegyu steaks while the people of Kentucky freeze.
Hilldawg also attacked Bush for not responding to Katrina saying he just didn’t care: “It is a great injustice that you would deny the resources to your own people, but that shouldn’t surprise us, because many people are invisible to this president.”
At least 42 people have died, including 11 in Kentucky, and conditions are worsening in many places days after an ice storm knocked out power to 1.3 million customers from the Plains to the East Coast. About a million people were still without electric Friday, and with no hope that the lights will come back on soon, small communities are frantically struggling to help their residents.
Is it fair to say the people in Missouri and Kentucky are invisible to this president?
Meanwhile, the media let this all slide, because the media have two primary agenda items:
1. Support Barack Obama.
2. Promote the myth of Global Warming.
Reporting that an ice storm in Kentucky is being ignored by the Dear Leader does not fit the template.
