    AP: Helicopters rush food, water to cut-off Vt. towns

    Relief supplies arrived at Vermont's National Guard headquarters early Tuesday in a convoy of 30 trucks from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Accompanied by Shumlin, FEMA administrator Craig Fugate toured the state by helicopter Tuesday to survey the damage.

    Plainview Daily Herald > AP Headlines

    I can just imagine the countdown if this were Bush (43)...

    Saturday... Sunday... Monday... Tuesday...

    How long does it take to get those Goddamn Trucks in there!?!... Sorry, Brian, back to you in the Studio...


    Anyway...

    Barry handled this Perfectly, so there.

    :)

    peace...

    While I personally commend the President for the advanced warning and heads up he gave regarding preparing for Irene as she was arriving, I fail to see what he specifically had to do with FEMA and the delivery of assistance to stricken areas. Same with Bush during Katrina. The President doesn't control FEMA actions. They report to him, but he does not give them day to day orders.

    Why did anyone need Obama to give them a "heads up"? Who are these people that are looking to Obama for guidance on hurricanes?

    Absolutely pathetic. But, there's your nanny state.... A bunch of useless idiots sitting glued to the TV waiting on Daddy to telegraph instructions.

    I watched the local weather back in August of 2005... the forecast was bad. I gathered up my family and got the duck outta fodge.

    It really was that simple.

    Those Buses were a Sight... Weren't they.

    Of course, the DemocRAT Mayor wasn't to Blame... Nor was the DemocRAT Governor, who the DemoRAT Mayor said DELIBERATELY Cockblocked Bush for 24 hours because she didn't want him taking the credit...

    Yep, those were the days.

    You heard that Boooooooooooooosh blew up the levies, didn't you?... :eusa_shhh:

    :)

    peace...

    Yeah... I'm not Blaming Obama... I'm Illustrating a Point.

    If (43) was President, this would have been "Katrina II"

    4 days?... 4 DAYS?!...

    :)

    peace...

    What part of it takes a few days for FEMA to respond to people not get?

    The Vermont floods you reference occurred on Monday (Irene Brings Worst Flooding In Century To Vermont : NPR). Fema started distributing supplies in Vermont on Tuesday. That's a less than 24 hour window, which is near excellent.

    Of course, Fema was prepared. Thank goodness the stupidity under Brownie has been fixed.
