WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama voiced condolences to Japan Friday for the people who perished in a massive earthquake, saying the United States "stands ready to help" in any way it can.
At the same time, Obama said in a statement that his administration will "continue to closely monitor tsunamis around Japan and the Pacific going forward" and he directed the Federal Emergency Management Agency to be ready to help if U.S. states or territories are struck.

Whenever he finishes a statement, the following theme should be played:
Instead of Hail To The Chief, this should be played during his appearances:
Obama: always “closely monitoring”, but never actually DOING anything.
“Continue to closely monitor” ~ voting “present.”
Nice. We have 15 trillion in debt. I hope that we keep this in mind. We have ships and military personnel that certainly can help and should help, but please no money. We can’t afford it. Japan probably doesn’t need cash but just resources to help.
“Obama Offers To Assist Earthquake-Stricken Japan “
He is gubmint an’ he wantsa help!
Think they’d fall for it...
Let’s crank up those printing presses again. The dollar needs a little more devaluation.
I would bet freepers were up to speed on this disaster for 2 hours before anyone even awoke the stinky snorer
lol- nice one Barry
Give fate the flying finger again, why don’cha
“Bozo the Clown TV Theme” would be appropriate.
“I would bet freepers were up to speed on this disaster for 2 hours before anyone even awoke the stinky snorer”
Freepers are usually on top of the news before any media gets hold. Freepers Rock!
A very risky move. Closely monitoring Japan with the possibility of actually assisting them is likely to anger Kim Jong Il and the NK’s. Likely O will not risk this and will retreat back into his hiding closet.
VERY concerned thus closely monitoring the situation......................again.
“Closely monitoring.” I love that. But it’s not limited to Obama. Bureaucrats and agencies are always saying “We’re monitoring the situation” as if there is anything they could actually do about it.
thanks to our freepers in Tokyo and Japan we were discussing this almost an hour before someone woke up Drudge
Radiation levels at the Tokaimura nuclear fuel-processing plant in north-east Japan are 15,000 times higher than normal.
A government request for help from US military forces in Japan for help was turned down. The US said its forces were not equipped to handle such accidents.
Continue to closely monitor
Staff waits to hear from CNN.
When Japan recovers he will claim some credit and the media will give it to him. Meanwhile if the western US were to get a bad hit he would be blameless.
How soon before the elites start blaming global warming for the quake and trying to make it Bush’s fault?
7th Fleet Postures Forces following Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
To reiterate, this is simply a posturing of forces. 7th Fleet currently has no direction to conduct disaster response operations. Such a direction would come only following a request from the Government of Japan.
The elites blame sun spots on Bush too.
