    The response to Katrina. Just watching the news makes me so thankful I don't live along the coasts.

    Obama seems as absent as Bush was. Determining if that's a bad thing or not is up to the eye of the beholder.

    Absent?

    Didn't you just start a thread complaining about Obama doing a flyover with Christie?

    The complaint was about Christie not Obama. Besides a fly over is not help in and of itself. I'm simply stating the response looks the same to me.

    I do not recall military transports flying in utility trucks and crews during Katrina?

    One thing that could be done is to provide generators for Gas stations.

    To be fair Obama has to campaign to save his job.

    Yeah the video of the gas lines is insane. Not to mention the violence that forced police to now have to sit at the functioning stations.

    The problem with gas there right now is not no gas, they just cannot pump it from the tanks.
