It will be a speech about a campaign promise kept - Obama is in the process of slowing he rise of the ocean and ordering Irene to go away.

Why? To take credit for the hurricane not being as bad as it could've been.

Can't wait to hear the spin about how the hurricane being downgraded affected his Presidency ....

Let me guess, he will reassure the huddled, frightened masses and announce billions of dollars in Federal aid.

Well surprise, surprise, Obama’s milking of this hurricane is not over yet. He will come out and say “I made the hurricane go away, I am the great Obama”

So you're saying you expect Congress to appoint a committee to investigate the downgrade?

FEMA has less than $800 million in their coffers and I guarantee Obama will demand congress approve more taxpayer's money so he can keep buying the votes.

He is going to say that even though the storm was GW Bush’s fault, he “the one” was able to convince it to change from a CAT 5 to a tropical storm. And even though millions will be devastated unlike GW Bush who wanted black people to die, he “the one” will give federal recovery money only to minorities to make up for Katrina and slavery.

I can’t help but notice CNN always calling the poser “President Obama”. Before it was always “George Bush”.

Jeez man. Go back on vacation. Your poll numbers are going to free fall whether you are here or there. So why don’t you just give it up and stop the facade. Go ahead and go back on vacay. That way you won’t have to trouble yourself, and we won’t have be troubled by you.

Why not? The MSM convinced many Americans that Katrina (or the handling of it anyway) was Bush's fault. Why wouldn't they try to find some way to make Obama the hero because Irene wasn't as bad as expected?

Although Irene was not as significant as I had hoped, I want to assure you that I have taken every available opportunity in the midst of this crisis to spend more of your money.

Pathetic!

He is sure milking this thing for every cheap political point he can muster. From what I can tell though from comment sections on the internet news links...folks have had enough of his showboating...lol

It will probably go over like a lead balloon.

So the hero Obama cuts his vacation short because of Irene but still gets worshipped for doing better than Bush did during Katrina? Really? That's almost as good as CBS' hurrican "expert" Ray Nagin. LOL!!!!!

Through my leadership, we have averted a great disaster. I will continue to protect the coasts from storms while I am President and I will now spend tens or hundreds of billions in new stimulus using this tropical storm as an excuse.

Keep talkin’, Hussein. People get more sick of you every time you blabber.

I suspect, folks, this ENTIRE WEEK will be a series of statements by Hussein and his punks Janet and Ray LaHood and Mayor Bloomdork...all in an attempt to make themselves look like they’re in control...and the non-event that was Irene was due to their masterful work.

The media, of course, ever eager to be the first to fellate Hussein, will play along—cheering his non-eventful “management” of the non-terrifying Irene.

Obama will tell us that he is the savior and he “parted the waters.” It will be a speech full of “I...I...I.” I was on the phone with every official about the hurricane while on my vacation and I told Gov. McDonnel...I told Gov. Christi...I told Mayor Bloomberg...I told FEMA.. etc. what to do. Then I flew back; cut my vacation short and I told God...blah, blah, blah. So we FReepers gotta count all those “I’s” as Obama takes credit for the demise of Irene.

Has anyone counted the number of appearances he has made on TV, Cable, and Radio during his almost three long years in office. Honestly it seems like an eternity, and it just goes on and on and on.................A GOOD SPEECH IS JUST WHAT THIS NATION NEEDS TO CURE ALL THE ILLS.

How many times will he say “I”?

He will try to take credit for rescuing us from a thunderstorm.

Sometimes it is better to just shut up, but this fool is too stupid to know that.

Yep. He’ll announce billions in recovery money. Then, the “bus crash victims” (i.e. people who weren’t even there lining up to get their settlements for fake injuries) will get their FEMA debit cards.

All night the Obama admion hyped the storm as being ‘horrible’.
Hurricane Gloria, Hurricane Hugo, and Hurricane Floyd were worse.
