Just heard on that radio that Obama finally called Gov. Sonny Perdue. Apparently, I was wrong and Obama called Perdue Tuesday evening - I apologize.
But my point still stands. I seem to remember a candidate Obama, chastizing President Bush, saying how if things would have been different if Katrina was on his watch. Anyone else remember that? "Obama acknowledged that recovery [in New Orleans] has not come at an acceptable pace."
In the article on GPB.org, it states, "President Barack Obama says Georgia’s request for federal disaster aid will receive his prompt attention" and "A spokesperson for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said that it could take up to two weeks for the president to decide whether Georgia is a disaster zone". Do you consider this an "acceptable pace", Mr. President?? We're going to have it all cleaned up by then... Maybe, maybe I could see taking two weeks to get funds together and sent out to all of the appropriate places. Maybe. But TWO WEEKS to decide whether or not GA is a disaster zone??? Lemme give you a clue here: OUR HIGHWAYS ARE UNDERWATER, PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR HOMES, PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES - WE'RE A DISASTER ZONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Someone needs to get this man a dictionary. First, he debates over the meaning of "tax", and now he needs two weeks to decide what is and isn't a disaster zone.
