Posted on 08/28/2011 8:53:52 PM PDT by i88schwartz
CBS White House correspondent Norah O'Donnell said President Obama displayed his engagement to the federal government's response to Hurricane Irene by returning a day early from vacation and meeting with the head of FEMA. O'Donnell says the administration wanted to make sure no comparison to the government's handling of Katrina was made.
"I think it's important to note too that the Obama administration was really determined to avoid any comparisons to the failed federal government response to Hurricane Katrina. So, President Obama made a very public display of his engagement on this issue. He returned from his vacation a day early. Yesterday, he went to the headquarters of FEMA where he talked not only with the head of FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security, but also all the Governors and state and local officials. So, that was key certainly for this President," O'Donnell reported.

LOL.......The Apologists . . Part 10,000
Spewing up a big load of Fritos and bean dip!!!!!
Norah is an ass-kissing RAT idiot. She recently praised Dan Rather as one of the greatest reporters of all time. Base your judgement on that.
You beat me to it!! I was going to make the same observation.
“I think it’s important to note too that the Obama administration was really determined to avoid any comparisons to the failed federal government response to Hurricane Katrina.
He only came back because his poll numbers were tanking.
She’s the biggest kneepadder there is in DC next to Chris Matthews.
War is peace Freedom is slavery Ignorance is strength Texas jobs mean nothing Obama is great The economy is strong
The media is going to go full Orwell to try to get Obama re-elected. That hated Tea Party is wrecking the plan to give everyone a slice of socialist pie -- free healthcare and a Lexus -- for doing absolutely nothing.
I don’t think he cares about his poll numbers. They have been tanking all summer and yet that hasn’t stopped him from doing the things he likes to do which is wreck this country and golf.
Has any man ever given so much of himself? This man is awesome. He doesn't just talk about shared sacrifice, he lives it. [/s]
Then he came back because he was **** scared on the Island.
We know he didn’t come back because he “cared” about hurricane victims.
Or maybe he came back early because the weather would have prevented his return on the date scheduled!!!
He'd be stuck indoors up there with Michelle angrily clumping around the house and no place to get away due to flooded fairways.
Sometmes it sucks to be president.
Someone should explain to Nora that one need not stand on a corner to prostitute themselves. One can do it just as easily for a mainstream media outlet. It’s just that the money is much better.
Then again, I guess she already figured that out.
Commie Norah has been brain dead for years.
It figures Rickie Kaplan of CNN and Bill Clinton Monica propaganda campaign would hire this Palin hating troll.
Butch “The Butcher” Napiglitano.
The wookie was giving the mullah such a ration of grief during the vacay, and he was hitting the golf ball so poorly, that he fled Maatha’s vineyards to the safety of FEMA and welcoming bosom of fellow communist Janet Napolitanoman.
LMAO he left a day earlier from the place the storm was supposed to hit like thousands of others did.
They weren’t golfing on the Vinyard today.
Pres. Bush talked to the Gov. of Louisiana, for all the good it did. She was too stupid to listen or to accept help for her citizens. Obozo is lucky most of the affected governors are competent, capable Republicans rather than moronic, government-dependant dems.
The Governor was stupid but she was pulling a Governor Lawton Childs/ Democrat, Florida, as in Hurricane Andrew... to get the media to campaign against President GHWBush. And it worked out just like it did the first time it was done.
That and he couldn't stand another day with Moochell.
Because Bush never returned from vacation to deal with Katrina and he never talked to any of the governors of the effected states nor did he talk to FEMA. Isn’t that right, Ms O’Donnell?
Like Michael Medved said, “The problem isn’t that Obama goes on vacation - - the problem is that he comes back from vacation.”
Slut with a microphone. She has more STDs than a water fountain in the Castro District of San Fransicko...
We're doing pretty good given we have no TV outlet.
Norah O’Donnell is one frakin’ idiot Kool-Aid drinking AnointedIdiot apologist. =.=
I think any politician with the poll ratings that Barry has would have done the same thing.
And now we hear Biden was golfing just before Irene hit?
I think it’s a safe bet that the cable news channels are breathing a sigh of relief that it hit this weekend when most were home and they could get the viewers. Had it hit next weekend, the cable news channels would have been out of luck.
The name plates say it all. When was the last time you were in a conference meeting, and everyone had name plates in front of them?
And so it begins...
White House Insider: Obama Rushed to Hurricane Irene “Photo-Op
can any of this be true ? Darn I hope some of it is
Returning? I thought he was evacuating Martha’s Vinyard.
Oh.. the danger - check out the actual weather at Martha's Vineyard Airport
Windy, but not devastating.
The got flooded out with a whole 0.2 inches of rain - but I guess enough to ruin your golf outing though
Who is the guy to Obama’s left?
FEMA guy. Don’t know his name.
Norah bows her knee to the little tin god Hussein.
He had to return. It would have looked bad if he didn’t. Why give him credit for something he had to do.
“Norah O’Donnell said President Obama displayed his engagement to the federal government’s response to Hurricane Irene by returning a day early from vacation and meeting with the head of FEMA”
LOL Every citizen that could have been affected by that storm knows he left because:
1. He was scared out of his britches he might get hit if he stayed in his vacation spot and
2. The photo op at Fema Hdqt. and the chance to get more face time on tv were simply irresistable to th narcissist in chief.
Returning from vacation by eight houre big deal.
Yep, that’s exactly what I predicted. The MSM hyped the coverage so that they could try to put Obama in a favorable light, compared to what they tagged Pres. Bush with, after Katrina.
