11 years after Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana, the state is once again under water. More than 40,000 homes in the state have flooded and been evacuated.
When Bush was in the White House, he was quick to show support from the state, speaking to the nation before the storm and declaring a federal state of Emergency in Louisiana at the request of the Governor. He even cut his vacation short and returned to the White House, and was on the ground days after the storm meeting with local and federal authorities.
His commitment to rebuilding the state was evident when he signed legislation, committing over $52 billion to revitalize the Gulf Coast. Meanwhile, First Lady Laura Bush personally raised millions of dollars to restock and restore the area’s libraries.
10 years later, Bush returned to New Orleans.
This time around, Obama is too busy playing golf in Martha’s Vineyard to take notice. When he’s not on the course, he’s on the beach, or busy tweeting about the Olympics and his new summer playlist.
Oh yeah, did we mention he attended a $10,000 per couple closed-door fundraiser for Hillary Clinton?
What do you think? Do we need Obama out of the White House immediately?
