    "Anything they need, we will be there," Obama said. "And we are going to cut through red tape.
    We are not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules.
    We want to make sure that we are anticipating and leaning forward."

    So Obama ADMITS that red tape a lot of rules GET IN THE WAY??? IS he admitting that with the growing rules and regulations that the Obama administration has done that IMPEDES PROGRESS???

    Federal regulations increased 7.4% during Obama’s first three years
    To put this in perspective, the growth rate in the first George W. Bush term — when he enjoyed one-party control of Washington for a couple of years as well — was 4.4%.
    That was bad enough; by 2008, the annual compliance cost to the economy was $1.7 trillion, according to a 2010 Small Business Administration study.
    If compliance costs increase at the same ratio as regulations, the Obama administration added nearly $126 billion in compliance costs in three years.

    ARE THESE the "RED TAPE" Obama wants to be CUT????

    Oh shut up. We have a very real national emergency in progress. 50 or 60 million Americans are going to be affected by this disaster. And all you can do is try to make some kind of insane political point on it. Get a life, learn a bit about what really matters in life.

    Where were you when this was "politicized"

    That is the same Obama who, in 2005, called for a government that was “more serious, more somber” in dealing with both crises like hurricanes and what he called “systemic problems.” Obama also criticized Bush for not exhibiting a “greater sense of empathy” toward the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

    You must be a damned sick-minded individual to attempt to score political points out of a national emergeny!

    So IT is OK to have growing, burdensome RED TAPE and rules and regulations that the Obama administration currently has more than 4,000 federal regulations “in the pipeline which, if implemented, will impose costs of more than $515 billion on the U.S. economy.”

    The President has already declared the affected areas disaster zones. He has directed all agencies that deal with this kind of emergency to have their personel and equipment in place. He is addressing the nation in about an hour.

    The critizism of Bush was about primarily what occured after Katrina, not what occured before.
