    "President Barack Obama, who in 2005 criticized then-President George Bush for not exhibiting a “greater sense of empathy” toward the victims of Hurricane Katrina, told a campaign crowd at the University of Virginia on Wednesday afternoon--as people in Louisiana were dealing with what the National Hurricane Center called “life-threatening hazards” caused by Hurricane Isaac--that he had discussed the hurricane on the telephone from Air Force One as he was flying East from a previous campaign event in Colorado."

    yeah, he prolly could have phrased that in a way that doesn't make him look like a hypocritical douche-nozzle.

    Just like Bush got beaten by the Liberals for irresponsible deficit spending and blamed for Obama's woes and yet they praise Obama for tripling deficit spending as a solution and still blame Bush because it is not working. Is this what it means to be enlightened or is it simply a bunch of sheeple with no common sense?

    "President Barack Obama was today forced to announce he will fly to storm-hit Louisiana on Monday – hours after Mitt Romney beat him to the punch by deciding to head there this afternoon."

    "Romney had changed his schedule to head to an affected town outside New Orleans while Obama, who has yet to visit the Tropical Storm Isaac zone, headed off to Texas to campaign."

    "He (Romney) opted out of a joint campaign appearance in Richmond, Virginia with Paul Ryan, his vice-presidential running mate, to head to Louisiana."

    Misery in La. as Isaac flooding leaves power out
    August 31, 2012 — Isaac sloshed north into the central U.S. on Friday after flooding stretches of Louisiana and Mississippi and knocking out power, leaving entire water-logged neighborhoods without lights, air conditioning or clean water.

    Was there some point to this poutrage thread? I mean, other than for conservatives to get their daily dose of poutrage in.

    They're apparently upset because the president used a telephone. That's scraping bottom in terms of finding reasons to be outraged.

    Of course, if President Obama did go to Louisiana, they'd be screaming at him for grandstanding and interfering with the cleanup.

    Obama can be kept up to date on the damage by phone and other ways, his going to the scene is just a distraction that takes many people off the real job at hand.

    He doesn't need to go, it would be nothing more than a photo op.

    They don't need him there.

    That huge reeking thing right in front of you that you're busily ignoring is Obama's hypocrisy.
