President Obama visited Moore, Oklahoma today to tour the damage and visit with those whose lives were wracked by last week’s tornado.
It’s a rare visit to a deep red state by the president. He generally travels to places selected for political purposes while the White House pretends he is simply trying to communicate with America. I guess it took a tragedy for him to feel the need to communicate with Oklahomans.
The Bush White House did the same thing, far as I can remember. I can recall the Bush people kind of dissing the East Coast just before Bin Laden struck it.
Okay, you want to travel for politics, fine, but don’t pretend you’re doing it for America.
Here’s some video.
