Tornado kills two, hurts 35, destroys 136 homes on The Murfreesboro Post
Probably because he remembers the last time he tried to talk about a tornado:
RICHMOND, Va. — Barack Obama, caught up in the fervor of a campaign speech Tuesday, drastically overstated the Kansas tornadoes death toll, saying 10,000 had died.
The death toll was 12.

Hmmm.. Maybe someone told Obama that we didn't vote for him here. Actually, I think we'll do much better if the federal government just leaves us alone.
Here is video of one of the storms.

Really? Are you going to tell your governor not to apply for federal aid and declare the cities that were hit disaster areas?
David.. I have no problem telling our governor not to apply for federal aid. He is, hovever, a democrat so you can be sure that he'll ask anyway. I don't know how they do things in New York but the folks around here aren't sitting on a bridge waiting for the federal government to come tell them where to squat and lean. When EMS put out a call for help yesterday, thousands of people showed up. The people here help themselves and they help their neighbors. The only thing the federal government could do right now is to slow the cleanup effort down.
