Obviously Kenny has not gotten the memo from his Rat Gov Bredesen who just yesterday was hyping the Obama Admin line.............President Obama is battling criticism of his administration’s reaction time to the massive Gulf Coast oil leak. In Tennessee, it’s just the opposite.

Heavy flooding has devastated the state, but Gov. Phil Bredesen couldn’t stop gushing about the president’s help on Thursday.

“FEMA and the White House have been absolutely supportive,” he told reporters on a conference call.

FEMA was quickly on the ground, and on Monday, “the president was on the phone with me before the sun came up,” he said.

Bredesen, a Democrat, said he’s been in regular contact with White House staff. In fact, he had just ended a long conversation with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Bredesen, who has weathered his share of tornados and storms as a public official, said that he’s “never seen this kind of response.”

WHAT specifically has the administration done to rave about? Make phone calls?

Why don’t these rich country music stars spend some of their own money to rebuild Nashville?

When the response reaches the level of that given in New Orleans after Katrina, then it will be adequate.
