"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in Louisiana on Monday as that state and others along the Gulf Coast prepared for Tropical Storm Isaac. —The declaration makes federal support available to save lives, protect public health and safety and preserve property in coastal areas.
Jindal, a Republican, shot back late Monday in a letter to the Obama administration that the declaration fell short of the help he was requesting.
“We appreciate your response to our request and your approval,” Jindal wrote. “However, the state’s original request for federal assistance … included a request for reimbursement for all emergency protective measures. The federal declaration of emergency only provides for direct federal assistance.” here
I distinctly remember the cries of the “uncaring” and the “cold” “racist” Pres. George W Bush, because he didn’t land in New Orleans right after Katrina. Of course, that was wisely for the reason of being a DISTRACTION and taking needed support away from where the areas it was required., But that didn’t stop the Democrats and Liberals from complaing. (“never let a crisis go to waste”). The bellowing of”where’s FEMA?!” And those unfounded, incendiary comments from Jesse Jackasson and Al not- to- Sharpton that it was because Bush was a “racist” and didn’t care about black people. Sound familiar? It’s being repeated now by the same political bigots on the Left.
*sigh moan same ole same ole
Which brings to point — where are all those media cry’s now? Where is Obama landing in Louisianans or Mississippi for that matter? Where the heck is FEMA?? Where are the demands for Obama to show up with soup bowls in hand?!
Obama is tweeting last I read…. something silly and petty about the Republican Convention. And playing golf… off raising money, again?
Gov. Jindad reiterated today the need for quick assistance from el presidente. Jindal’s requests are falling on busy ears and thus, no to slow answers. The Governor should know that though. Both Louisiana and Mississippi are, ummm.... Republicans states. Obama might just like to see the entire area sink into the Gulf. Especially before the election.
Oh dear, was that too harsh? Am I sounding like a Democrat again???
