  1. What is the point of this? I know Bush was criticized for not going to New Orleans, but unless Obama is going to be out there trying to actually fight the fire, stay away. The police and other officials have more important things to do than babysit him for a photo op. Once the fire is out, by all means, go visit and see the damage and commiserate with the families, but not now.

    • And that criticism was ridiculous. But, of course, made by his team.

      No, you have to actually GO an have your picture taken looking sad.

      THEN you “care.”

      Stupid. People are stupid.

  2. I don’t see spiking the football on the agenda…. Did he not hear what the SCOTUS ruled?

    Plus, @ Robin H, you’re half right. Him visiting while it’s still happening, could cause a lot of problems, considering the shutting down of roads, air traffic, and the such because of his visit.

    What it won’t get in the way of, is firefighting planes, because Obama cut that.

  3. What??? No “fundraiser”?
    So Obama shows up, gets in the firefighters way & gets plenty of free media/propaganda coverage… that saves Obama on campagin ad $ I guess because he gets 5-10+ minutes of free + biased coverage on the “evening news” tonight…

  4. I would admire a President who said the following.
    1. All air traiffic is grounded for 20 minutes in areas where Air Force 1 flies. I do not want to ground any aerial fire fighting planes.
    2. I do not want to divert any resources from fire fighting and protection in order to protect me.
    3. it costs tons of money for me to travel

    Therefore I am not coming now. I am directing the amount that would be spent on my travel be used to fight the fires or donated to the Red Cross anad other groups helping those affected by the fires
