Posted on 04/22/2013 6:48:04 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot
President Obama is still not scheduled to visit the devastated community of West, Texas, where an explosion at a fertilizer plant five days ago killed 14 including 11 emergency responders and wounded approximately 200 people.
Up to 75 homes were damaged, as well as an apartment complex that was decimated.
Obama so far has sent prayers and money to the town, but not himself.
He will have ample opportunity. The president, along with First Lady Michelle Obama, will be in Texas two days this week, heading to Dallas Wednesday for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser and then remaining in the city overnight.
On Thursday, he is scheduled to attend the dedication ceremony for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.
But he may be on a tight schedule as he is supposed to attend the Planned Parenthood Gala in Washington Thursday evening.

In the meantime, cause of fire still unknown
Not too many blacks were caught in that fire . . . No need to go . . .
I’m pretty sure he isn’t welcome here.
If he does show up he will no doubt fly into Austin where the drones will bow and lick his boots.
F U B O!
I doubt that 0bama is really wanted (or needed) in West.
“Obama hates white people”
Presidents should just stay out of the way in most cases.
His papers are not in order - if only we could pick him up at the border and deport him.

Shades of Sandy...
then it was a fund raiser in Las Vegas...
“I doubt that 0bama is really wanted (or needed) in West.”
Thats kinda what I was thinking, the folks in West are probably fine with him not visiting.
Besides, Michelle would probably hate Kolaches.
Don’t come we don’t want your commie butt here..
Someone should go mow NO THANKS, ZERO in their hayfield near the airstrip we would land onto.
has he even phoned the mayor yet, has he even mentioned this awful tragedy?
over 200 hurt,
40 homes destroyed,
a whole town and surrounding areas destroyed and hardly anything from the media to what they are supposed to cover IMHO.
that;s not fair, Boston the city of diversity and tolerance has a low % of blacks but they sure are nutty liberals and I guess small town TX in the south who voted republican is not worthy of his attention
I wasnt aware that there was ANY food she wouldn’t eat. lol
Every Memorial Day people are shocked that he didn’t make it to Arl Nat Cemetary. My Father is buried there. Believe me, Bambi is the LAST person he would want to visit. Same in West, Texas.
I don’t see any horns on him....
As a Texan, all I can say is.....GOOD!
He wouldn’t do anything but cause problems anyway.
West Texas need not be defiled by having this breathing piece of excrement stand on their land.
We’ve already got lots of disinfecting to do after this worthless “thing” leaves office.
Obama is slime.
I wish W hadn’t invited the pos to his Presidential Library opening. We don’t need his smelly rear end in Texas.
Picture that smarmy laugh...
remember how he tossed off GovPerry’s comments by saying;
‘Why should I listen to this guy, half his state is on fire’
HE SMILED AND CHUCKLED
at the Bastrop fires.
HE HAS NO EMPATHY.
0 is a loathsome creature.
who’d want his visit? It would only end up costing the community zillions of dollars in security costs and the White House wouldn’t pay it
If I lived in West texas, i would say good! And wish he never descreated the place by coming to it. But, that is just me.
Every day he doesn’t visit Texas is a good day.
His last foray into the land of the electoral red map was to Cushing OK to stand in a pipe yard to discuss the KeystoneXL pipeline. It was poorly attended by both politicos (mostly R in OK) and regular folks. I suspect he doesn’t really want a repeat performance.
He will go and charge this fund raising visit to Texas to the taxpayer. It is a twofer.
Apricot kolaches.Oh boy!
Fine with me he doesn’t come to Texas. He’d only get in the way.
Good. I am (we are) counting on Texans to give him the same welcome, at West, TX, if he showed up.
Respectful for the Office, but not the man.
There are no good golf courses in the area.
Obama is too preocccupied to visit West, Texas. Obama is getting ready to cozy up to the surviving Boston Marathon bomber. Shucks.....lots to do.....get him a Koran, a prayer blanket, a soccer field, a special diet, let him pray five times a day, an air-condtioned cell with a 50’ flat screen TV, maybe even a personal visit with Michelle Obama, etc. Actually, Mr. POTUS Obama, the folks in West, Texas want nothing to do with you, we Texans are taking good care of our kind of folks!!! You didn’t give one hoot about us last week.....so....please stay away, and continue coddling to your beloved Muslim Brotherhood brethren!!!
It’s not about the people in West, it’s about Obama and his agenda. If he can’t use the tragedy to push his agenda, he won’t waste his time. It’s probably best for the community not to be used like the people in Newtown.
Watched the reports live via internet links from here.
As far as the larger “media that be” is concerned, a major tragedy in Texas wasn’t “important” enough last week. Could it be a political/regional bias? Naw, couldn’t be...
So no reason for Obama to go--not "his people." Not big donors.
I don’t blame him. Those kind of folks don’t take kindly to an enemy of the U.S. setting foot on their land.
Just fine with us STAY AWAY...
I truly wish that the POTUS would cut that nonsense out.
Because the presidents have taken on so many authorities not authorized them by the constitution, for them to waste their time visiting disasters, throwing out baseballs, attending shopping center openings, etc., is almost criminal.
Mind you, their doing such things is not by themselves bad. But doing them when they have *work* to do is horrible.
The solution is to strip much of the unconstitutional authority from the office of the president. Here’s a basic list of where to start.
1) Ask congress to restore the presidential proclamation to being solely for honorarium mentions, not seizing for the federal government endless amounts of state lands. Oh, and yes, returning the vast majority of these takings to the states as *their* property.
2) Discontinue the extremely unconstitutional practices of presidential signing statements, executive orders that in effect create new laws, appointments not approved by the US senate as “Czars”, violations of the War Powers Act and the Posse Comitatus Act. Ask for congress to create a strict definition of what executive communications can be protected via executive privilege.
3) Ask congress to create permanent committees that can fire any federal employee for misconduct, even if they have a protected government service status. Request that these committees hold hearings for impeachment of cabinet officers when they are petitioned to do so by majority votes of the top committees. Finally that the committees are permanent committees for referrals of contempt of congress.
Maybe Eric H0lder can replace those (he should go into Mexico and recover the gov't firearms shipped there.)?
Obastard hates white people.
