What? Not Even a Look Out the Window?

by Keith Koffler on May 10, 2011, 4:05 pm

President Obama doesn’t seem to have even peered out his Air Force One window to view the swelling Mississippi, a minimal show of interest for which George W. Bush was pilloried when he took a peek at the damage wrought by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. At least Bush bothered to look.

Obama is traveling today OVER the devastation being wrought by the Mississippi in order to get to events in Texas, where he will rally his Hispanic supporters with a speech on immigration in El Paso and then head to the Lone Star state’s liberal bastion of Austin for two fundraisers.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who spoke with reporters aboard Air Force One, was asked whether Obama had bothered to get a view from above.

“I haven’t seen him do that but I haven’t been with him for the full flight so far,” Carney said.

Well, it certainly doesn’t sound like they were on the lookout for it, and it’s clear the plane is not intentionally headed over a particularly devastated area for a look-see.

Obama’s hopscotch over the Mississippi flooding is emblematic of his disaster no-show policy.

He’s currently getting slammed for visiting wildfire-plagued Texas for political purposes while refusing to grant the state disaster declaration status, which would free up federal aid. Reporters on Air Force One could see smoke rising as the plane headed into El Paso.

While he spent a brief time on the ground in Alabama after tornadoes ripped through the state late last month, he failed to even issue a public statement about tornadoes that killed dozens a few days earlier in North Carolina and the surrounding states.

Of course, the mother of all Obama disaster AWOL events was his slow and awkward response to the Gulf oil spill crisis a year ago.

Bush was criticized for waiting more than a day after Katrina struck New Orleans to return to Washington from his vacation in Texas. Instead of landing in the area, he looked out from Air Force One at the devastation in a move that was meant to show his interest, but which backfired and was used against him by those who claimed he hardly cared.

The president got to the city a couple of days later, when there was less chance he would get in the way of rescue and recovery operations.

The Gulf Oil spill is still having a huge impact every day and he just gets another pass. Isn’t it ironic that we keep having the worst disasters EVER and the press remains silent or covers it up. Thanks Keith for the updates. I am amazed on a daily basis by his lack of empathy.

He’ll mention the wildfires in his Texas speech. He’ll bite his lip, lower his head down, and two minutes later he’ll be grinning ear to ear. A guy can only go so long without applause.

OT, but Jonah Goldberg is accusing BO of crass political expediency in his premature announcement of OBL’s death thereby making the intelligence gathered useless. I thought the samething and wondered why no one was mentioning it. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-goldberg-osama-20110510,0,5729340.column

Oh Granny Jan, you are assuming he gives a flip about anyone in Texas or anywhere else in America. Especially not those illegals he’s pandering to. Human trafficing across the border is a very lucrative business for the Zeta gang. They deal drugs too. A whole bunch of them got into a deadly gun fight with a rival gang on Falcon Lake yesterday. Thirteen of them were killed. Remember the young lady who was jet skiing with her husband last October when he was killed trying to escape a gang? Same lake and same gang…in Texas.

At least he landed at some point. He has had more on his plate than too many other Presidents. The truth is that there is nothing that he can do to placate his critics. I support him in the face of extreme natural disasters and explosive foreign affairs. Could you or I do better?

srdem65 May 10, 2011 at 5:38 pm

Yes, it’s a demanding job requiring many skills. However, no one put the illegal alien solution on his plate, nor did the American public clamor for a comprehensive Federal takeover of health care. We didn’t ask the Prez to give our money to Brazil to help them drill for offshore oil, he wasn’t asked to stop bullying in the public school system and we didn’t ask him to bail out GM to protect union jobs.

The point is that his attention is scattershot over issues that he chooses to pursue. We have priorities and demands that the POTUS must meet and deal with for the benefit of ALL Americans.
If the job is too much, he can certainly retire in Jan2013 and let someone else take on the responsibility.

Yes I believe I could do better. For starters I would go to El Paso and announce my immigration policy: “There will be no amnesty and the path towards citizenship and your dreams already exists. Follow the laws. No nation can take in all the poor from another nation. If we do not have a slot for you here it is your duty to return to your homeland and work for it’s reform and success as hard as you worked here. I will be submitting a bill to congress regarding card check when hiring new employees. The main point of this legislation is the severe punishment of those companies that knowingly hire illegal immigrants. So sever the fines imposed would make it economically impossible for these corporations to see hiring illegal immigrants as a benefit. I will then be deploying the National Guard to the border while funding and construction for a security fence is completed.”

How’s that?

The only thing Obama is focused on is getting re-elected. He does not care about immigration other than the number of votes it will bring him. He has deliberately snubbed Texas because it went Republican in 2008 and is strongly Republican now. He has lied abut his accomplishments in office under the idea that a lie repeated often will eventually be believed. He is totally out of touch with the American citizenry and totally convinced that he can do no wrong. His green energy agenda will be a disaster for our economy if allowed to keep growing. He thinks he is a foreign policy whiz but his actions in this area have alienated us from our traditional allies and loosened the gates that keep us from our enemies.

I am a white, southern born senior citizen and I know that some who read this will assume I am racist. Nothing could be further from the truth. I would love to see Allen West or Herman Cain win the presidency in 2012. If either of them make it through the primaries, I will volunteer to work for their campaigns. The current crop of Republicans competing for the attention of the media are just more of the same old crap that got us into this mess. The only Republicans I have seen that are conservative and would follow the Constitution are Cain, West and Christie. The rest are Rhinos to one degree or another and would just put on a show of reform.

I hope that all will join me in saying a prayer for the survival of our way of life.

Reply

AnonnA May 10, 2011 at 7:52 pm

The only reason that Obama is going to Texas is because he knows he can find a lot of latinos there.

He doesn’t care if they are legal or illegal as long as they vote for him because he plays their race issue the way they like it — and the illegal aliens do vote, don’t doubt it.

If Obama was really concerned about terrorism, he would have left Usama in place until the couriers were no longer providing information to previously unidentified cells. It was absolutely criminal to announce his death before the intelligence gathered was disseminated to other countries! Imagine the number of cells that could have been erased! He was looking for nothing more than a bounce in his poll numbers. While I have no problem with our Seals taking Usama out, I find it somewhat amusing that Obama doesn’t believe in water boarding but has no problem with violating sovereign airspace or assassination.

The BP Spill was not “the worst disaster ever”. This happened 30 years ago when Mexico soiled Gulf Coast beeches and paid not one centavo in damages. We recovered and go on today, nonetheless.
The Gulf has recovered. The area only suffers now because of a shutdown pushed illegally by the regime. The Engineers who wrote the recommendations said nothing of a moratorium. That was inserted by hussein and his barking dogs.
Now hussein wants to stop oil production in West Texas to protect a lizard. Now hussein wants to punish Texas who has undergone wildfires, all while begging for money in that same state.
He should be ashamed, but he does not know what that word means, apparently.

You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are NOT entitled to your own facts.
First of all, the executive branch doesn’t control the country’s purse strings…congress does. Nancy Pelosi controlled the House from January of 2007 to December of 2010. During the 110th Congress (Bush term) the debt increased $1.957 trillion. The 111th Congress (Obama term) turned out to be the mother lode of all new deficit spending. Nancy & Co. racked up $3.22 trillion in new debt during her last term as speaker, and Barry was signing those bills faster than she could get them passed. Bush is responsible for not vetoing spending bills and he did sign TARP before getting out of Dodge, but he doesn’t hold a candle to your boy Barry in the spending department.

This clown’s a 3rd generation America-hating communist and he will be booted from Club White House in 2012.

These kinds of games just floor me. Do the White House Managers really not comprehend the mean-spiritedness of such actions? Every time I think things have gone as far as they can, they pull another such blatant partisan stunt.

obama does not like texas, too independent a state, and does not like the south, except for illegal immigrant sympathizers’ votes. the feeling is mutual. he feels more at home around chicago and washington wheelers and dealers.

this president is a pure and simply phony , thats all there is to it,, nothing coming out of his mouth is honest or true except that all he cares about is wining again and of course his entire campaign is on the American dime.
Once again we get ripped off again…..

Remember that he also totally dissed Nashville last year. That was painfully obvious.
