... Obama is planning a Sunday visit to Moore, Oklahoma, the city decimated by a powerful tornado that killed at least 24 people and flattened a wide swath of the community...

...plans to meet with survivors of Monday's storm, as well as first responders who rescued as many as 100 children and adults buried in the rubble.

It’s not like the citizens of Moore OK don’t have enough trouble and sadness to deal with-—now the boy president wants to foul their situation further.......

It’s all about him!

He’ll get hammered on FR when he goes.

He would get hammered by FR if he didn’t go.

Sometimes the office of the President of the United States is bigger than the man.

I hated it when Bush did this - save going to NYC after 9/11. I try to put myself as a resident of New Orleans or Moore. Would I want the POTUS in my town while my neighbors and I am in survival mode? I just do not see the up side for those in distress.

Which, I do understand is beside the point.

I wonder how much his entourage security issues will hamper rebuilding efforts. The times he has come here he has basically shut the city down.

Obama ordered FEMA to deny the state of Oklahoma funds to build tornado shelters in their schoold, homes and buildings!!! He gave the funds to New Jersey, where they were dispursed to his political cronies and never gave the financial impact needed to really help the folks on the east coast!!! Christie, pain in the butt that he is, did work very hard to help and assist all in NJ that were wiped out!!!

If the people of Oklahoma have any common sense at all, they will stand by silently, never noticing Obama. I would suggest booing him and telling him to go back to Washington, DC, but....that would be an insult to our Presidency. People of Oklahoma.....Obama could care less about you!!!

After Obama, the office of the president will have become a toilet that needs disinfecting. The oval office will be like a rest area bathroom.

He’s been out of the limelight lately, except for last night’s celeb party.

That means he’s cooking up a speech, rehearsing and editing. He’s got a room of mirrors somewhere in the basement for this. It takes him several days to get ready. When he delivers the press with hail it as a milestone in the history of western civilization.

I used to live up in Pawnee county.
It would not be a stretch for protesters to show up at his appearance. Hopefully there will be video if it happens.

Lessee....

If he doesn’t make a visit, he’s an uncaring bastard who doesn’t give a crap red states.

And if he does - he’s an attention whore.

Good grief...there are a dozen other reasons to be pissed at him and this ain’t one of them.

I think when you have someone this bad for the nation, at least as I and many here on this conservative web site see it, you pretty much find fault with everything he does. And I feel no shame in doing so. The real bad is bad enough that he has earned total contempt and zero credit.

I was wondering if they had cleaned up the Moore Golf Course enough for Obama to play a few rounds.

Well Moore, Ok will have to suspend any cleanup operations while mac daddy struts around getting his picture taken with grieving parent and family members in giant photo-op pretending he cares anything about their problems.

JUST STAY AWAY YOU PHONY POS.

No one is mad at him for going to Moore.

Most everyone expected him to go.

We just have a bellyful of him.

I suppose you make a point....but his presence anywhere fouls the atmosphere.

Maybe, just maybe if he weren’t always in campaign mode the optics wouldn’t make him such an attention whore.

obummer’s visit is what I meant!

You aren’t far from truth. This nation is swirling down, unrepentant and defiant. Sad, very sad.

We must remain true to God and try to help the innocent.

There is enough trash scattered around Moore, so maybe an energetic local will spell out OBAMA SUCKS in big letters for his flyover!
One can hope.......
