This is what Obama wzs doing while people were being swept to their deaths in Georgia.

And where the hell is FEMA in Georgia?

Robert Gibbs will be touting Obama’s leadership in ending the North Georgia drought.

My heart goes out to all involved. I read that the red cross, I believe, was helping. I did ask myself where is Obamas press release, help and compassion for these people. He seems to be just like his voting record, absent!

Again, we see the political double-standard. GW got beat up badly every single time there was any weather-related problem, all because he supposedly withheld aid or just failed to act quickly enough...

Yet the ZERO gets no grief from anyone but us “kook, right-wing nuts...

And we all know that his appearance on Letterman was absolutely nothing more than marketing. Trying to play the candidate still with his approval ratings continuing to fall. So lets go on TV with another turd and play games...

What was left of the dignity in the office of POTUS, is now being finished off by the Zero. GW tried to restore some of the dignity... but that is being undone rather quickly.

“Amazing how little news coverage there is.”

His environmental “advisors” are getting ready to blame this on global warming to their advantage any moment, I’m sure.

The situations are entirely different. George W. Bush is a white man. When people died in New Orleans during his watch, it was proof that he hates black people (or so we were told).

Obama, on the other hand, was a black man even before he became President (as he pointed out to Letterman). Why should he care if a few "crackers" drown? It's not like the media will blame him.

It wasn’t the “urban” sections of Atlanta that were hit hardest, so not alot of people are wanting Obama to ride to the rescue, even if he could.

True, if a Republican were now President, we would be hearing from ABC/NBC/CNN/PMS about how nothing has been done to help these poor people.

I'm in GA. I just got done mowing my back yard, finally on a day when it's not raining. Now it looks like a battallion of tanks ran across a muddy field. I'm not sure it's an improvement.

I live in the NW suburbs of Atlanta. I think you need to go search and look at the pictures of downtown "urban" Atlanta. The west side of town, which is mainly inhabited by blacks, is in bad shape, depending on the landscape of the neighborhood.

Either way, Zero could care less about people in the south, so he wouldn't do anything even if every black person in Atlanta was flooded out.

Perdue has asked for Federal Aid. Has not received word as of yet that I know of.

8 dead so far. I20 is a river. Literally.

Atlanta water facility is UNDER WATER at this moment and is it suspected that raw sewage is being swept into the Chattahoochie River which is now swirling around people’s homes. God knows what the drinking water is like.

Entire school systems are shut down around Atlanta. I keep waiting for Obama to say something, do something, but nope. He just has to reassure the country that he was black before he was President to a gap tooth comedian.

I’m curious. Has another sitting President gone on a late night talk show?

Not to mention Buckhead, which is high percentage of black population.

We all know that these upstanding examples of journalists are hitting those keys with equal enthusiasm regarding little barry zerø's total lack of timely response to this multi-State total disaster.

The body of a 15 y.o. boy was found Tuesday morning in North GA. He and a friend were trying to rescue someone trapped in a Jeep when he was swept away.

Prayers for this young man and his family.

Maybe Obama doesn’t even know it’s flooding in GA. It might be above his pay grade.

yup. Gibbs will be all like “Obama is great.”

and the people of Georgia will be all like, “but we’re dyin’”.

And Jimmy Carter will be all like, “you fellow Georgians are racist.”

Everyone needs to realize that FEMA can’t just appear right away. The governor of the state in which there is damage needs to put in a request to receive federal assistance. Then the damaged area needs to be assessed and then the President needs to approve the request for federal aid. AND THEN THE FEMA WORKERS CAN COME IN AND HELP!

Oh bull crap. The media NEVER pointed this out when Bush was president. Hussein needs to be down there personally consoling people who’ve lost loved ones and their homes.

Instead, he guffaws like a buffoon on David Letterasshat’s show.

(I know what you said is true, I am merely pointing out the HYPOCRISY OF THE MEDIA.)
