Posted on 08/27/2011 1:19:01 PM PDT by PROCON
WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama on Saturday personally led his governments response to Hurricane Irene, marshalling top officials and visiting a disaster command center as the storm roared ashore.
Obama greeted officials at the National Response Coordination Center (NRCC) set up at the Federal Emergency Management Agencys (FEMA) headquarters in Washington, and then held a video conference with federal and state officials.

ROTFLMAO, 0bama couldn't lead a group of girlscouts out of the woods.
We’re sooo doomed.
0bama is an expert on hot air.
FUBO GTFO !
There goes my lunch.
hEHe is just appealing to his base, which is certifiasbly brain dead.
All of this for a Category One?
Oh great this will be the only time on record that a Cat-2(1) hurricane will completely destroy the US from North Carolina to Maine.
Well good news is it will be Obama’s fault...
What an obvious piece of propaganda crap. Obama couldn’t organize a two-car funeral.
“Leading” from the rear.
Sensing a pattern here.
When I heard a clip of him on the radio yesterday saying that this was going to be an historic hurricane and the federal government and FEMA were prepared to handle it, I almost choked with laughter.
He so wants it to be big! Bigger than Katrina. To prove that he can handle a disaster. To prove that liberals can handle a disaster unlike the Republicans and Bush and Brownie.
God help us with this idiot in charge.
“Obama returned home one night early on Friday from his island vacation on Marthas Vineyard off Massachusetts and appeared keen to be visibly in charge as the response to Hurricane Irene unfolds.”
Obama is always keen to appear to be in charge of things. “Leading from behind” simply means staying in the background while all the serious decisions are made and then racing to the head of the parade to announce “Mission accomplished.”
I’m sure he’s bitterly disappointed that Irene turned out to be a Category 1 pipsqueak instead of a Category 4 catastrophe that would have swept all the bad news about the economy off the front pages.
ROFL is right. Zero’s going to ride his Katrina, although poor Irene’s suffering from CHD - cataclysmic hurricane disfunction. She’ll be a TS soon, and that goes for old zero, too. In any case, $200 VISA cards for all minorities in NYC!
from the article
‘and (barry) appeared KEEN to be visibly in charge
as the response to Hurricane Irene unfolds’
He needs to be appear to be in charge
Trouble is, he’s a major weenie who has
never been in charge of anything.
Maybe they’ll sit him in front of an unconnected
box with dials and knobs and tell him to
punch buttons. Like the rides in front
of grocery stores.
Now there’s a visual for ya!
Obama takes charge...
ROTFLMAO, 0bama couldn’t lead a group of girlscouts out of the woods.
ah , bet he’s putting up new curtains
Well that's going to screw up today's golf game isn't it. This acting presidential is hard work.
...and Biden is disappointed because he can’t find the controls to steer the suckers.
During the Gulf oil spill why didn’t he walk out to the burning rig and lay hands on it? Huh??
Did you see him sitting there at command central? He was wearing a life Jacket, swim fins, goggles and snorkel. Ready for any catastrophe:)
So completely agree.
Obama is like the guy who looks for a parade, then runs to march in front to pretend he’s leading.
It’s humorous how much liberals are hyping this hurricane.
Already it’s only a cat-1.
"I'm their leader. Which way did they go?"
This is obviously going to be a touch and go.
Just great. Now TSA is involved.
Oh hell, now’s the time to start praying for a hurricane downgrade for REAL! The man/child is standing in front of the tinker toys for a photo-op session, cannot find the ‘on’/’off’ button.
Desperation to find something, anything, to stop the freefall in his numbers. If he ever loses media favor enough that there is a serious investigation into his background, he and everyone around him is completely screwed.
Bush Fiddled While New Orleans Drowned. Obama at FEMA HQ!
This is how IRENE was hyped. This is how IRENE will be spun.
I’m picturing him on his bike....just like in the wizard of oz...what a great spoof that would make for SNL
HA HA HA HA...... The local authorities at the affected states were putting these plans in place while he was on the golf course last week.
That will have the news channel readers gushing and giddy.
It will be a regular gag-fest.
yep...that’s what ‘leading from behind’ looks like.
(how do you lead from behind? well, just retreat, then at some point, pirouette...the pirouette president)
once a projected cat 3-4 hurricane comes ashore weakened to a 1, stays on shore weakening more and more, jump into the ‘suggestion center’ (was the command center till you arrived) and start spinning
I thought he hisself said he was Abraham Lincoln. I vaguely recall Lincoln once saying "...that government of the people, by the people, for the people..."
What is this "his government" BS? That is VERY offensive to me.
The only leadership skills he has is leading his family to shave ice shop.
Bush Fiddled While New Orleans Drowned. Obama at FEMA HQ!
Yes, the brain-dead have their hero.
Everything he touches turns to an abomination...
Obama couldn't lead flies to shit.
Sure just like he was in charge when the Seals went after obl.
Khaleejtimes out of Dubai via AFP - the french version of AP.
I feel safer already....../s
Actually, that one he's done.
(How did Larry like that anyway?)
And if he screws up he'll just blame it on Bush.
ROFLMAO, too true!
His people are on every station talking about how this hurricane will wipe us out, but wait.... Obama to the rescue!!!
We all knew this Obama ‘The ‘Leader’ meme was coming. It’s more predictable than this storm....lol.
God help us with Obama in charge.
This is the guy who said he’d make the sea stop rising, so we can be sure he knows how to stop rain.
It’ll be funny when Obama tries to throw Bloomberg under the bus.
Obama’s in control! How do you think it got downgraded to a Cat 1?
