Make no mistake...this MEDIA event (just heard the Obama worshiping media in MIAMI FLORIDA announce they would provide "special coverage") is being forced upon Team BO.

HE doesn't give a damn about Oklahoma.

I still remember in 2009 the state, along with others, were hit by natural disasters....Oklahoma was hit hard by floods....and guess who denied it.....you betcha....the Clown.

“Never let a good crisis go to waste”

He will do anything to take the heat of all the scandals that are currently hanging over his head.

Don’t expect help from government. It always has strings attached.

Well watch it get worse. There will be federal funds needed to help Oklahoma recover in the short term. If Cantor stays true to course he'll refuse to fund any relief unless offsets are found elsewhere like he did for Joplin. The Democrats, of course, will refuse to do that and will call the GOP heartless for denying relief to the stricken area. The media will call 5 out of 7 members of the Oklahoma congressional delegation hypocrites because the voted against Sandy relief but now expect Oklahoma relief. And on and on and on. People will suffer while those in Washington use this as an exercise in political posturing.

Probably via a crawl at the bottom of whatever was on the Golf Channel at the time.

Do not let yourself be troubled-—I’d be surprised if more than a dozen obummer supporters live in Okla—and I’m betting most Okies are breathing a sigh of relief that he’s not fouling the state further. They have enough problems as it is.

sorry I’ll miss it, will be busy moving from memphis, and meeting with the painter to do some painting to sell the huge monster of a house that was to big for two old people. Make a great family home 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, den, bonus room, wet bar with new ice maker, hot tub, (only thing I’ll miss),all the rooms are larger than average, it is just not senior friendly with the stairs. 2 families could live in it and meet for meals in the formal dinning room.

Exactly. Americans are helping with their own.

I sent $50 that I can't afford to the salvation army last night. So I'll eat a lot more Ramen noodles than usual next month. Its a small price to pay.

He will blame it on Global Warming and call for more taxes and government spending.

Bonus points if he blames Bush.

I doubt that the Oklahoma governor will do a ‘Christy’ and kiss his butt.

I'm sure the SA will put it all to good use, unlike the RedCross w/ their 'overhead'.

A photo op, a few tears and then it’s off for more fundraising and America bashing. What a pig.

Glenn Beck’s Mercury one charity had trucks on the scene by 2AM with 4 truckloads of supplies and were heading back for more.

Many years ago my ship was docked in Greece, and while off the ship there was a Red Cross mobile Canteen on the dock. We didn’t have any money on us a the time, but they would not give us a cup of coffee without paying.

I have never donated to the Red Cross since, and never will.

The Salvation Army always had free coffee, free donuts etc. and never asked for a penny.

There were many stories like yours from WWII. Soldiers paid the Red Cross for donated items.

Mr Ditter feels the same way about the Red Cross. Not a dime donated to them from this house.

Unless I’m mistaken the director of the Americn Red Cross gets about $900,000 per year.
The director of the Salvation Army get about $2,400.per year.

Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Oklahomans will be the ones taking care of their neighbors, but politicians will be there to get their quick photo op to show they “care..”

So, Obama has declared Oklahoma a major disaster.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
