    hands and ORDER ISAAC to "go away" ...just go away" and it will as fewer and fewer people now believe ...
    "I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God." – Evan Thomas on Hardball, June 5, 2009.
    Newsweek


    Or will Obama remember WHAT he said about Katrina and the "Federal Government primarily at fault..?

    Obama being quoted in the Chicago Sun-Times September 5, 2005 Monday Lynn Sweet column--

    "I think there were a set of assumptions made by federal officials that people would hop in their SUVs, and top off with a $100 tank of gas and [get some] Poland Spring water," and flee the storm, Obama said.

    The tragedy, said Obama, revealed "how little inner-city African Americans have to fall back on. But that has been true for decades."

    What I've learned about covering Obama, a freshman senator, is that he is very measured.
    On Friday night, rapper Kanye West, during a hurricane relief concert, said, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

    I asked Obama if he agreed.

    "What I think is that we as a society and this administration in particular have not been willing to make sacrifices or shape an agenda to help low-income people," he said.

    Obama also rejected the suggestion that local and state officials were to blame for the horrific response in Louisiana.

    The breakdown occurred at all levels, but "I hold the federal government primarily responsible," he said.

    Gee, I'm shocked. Barry couldn't seem to find any blame for the Chocolate Mayor who failed to pull the trigger on the evacuation plan the city had in place.

    Well now, I guess he'll show us how it's done with this latest hurricane.

    Good luck Barry.

    No doubt he will have FEMA standing by to respond as soon as possible, and unlike Bush, he won't shirk his duty and eat birthday cake while people are filmed by FAUX news living in dangerous situations.

    How many people will be killed in Isaac? Will the whole city be homeless again?

    FEMA will respond better under Obama than they did under Bush and his man Brownie
