Default Does Obama "Hate White People? Native Americans"?

When the Red River Flooded in North Dakota, Obama never visited. There may be as many as 30,000 people left homeless, but no visit? Obama pledge to NOT repeat "The failures of the previous administration" reagrding this catastrophe. He declared 34 counties and (I believe) 2 Indian Reservations as federal diaster areas, but has, YET TO VISIT THE AREA'S.

Why not?

This is NOT a partisan attack. I am sincerely asking why it was so bad for Bush to VISIT New Orleans and it's okay for Obama to NOT visit N. Dakota?

(I'm going to gloss over the fact that the people of ND were out ahead of time working their butts off and helping each other, which minimized the damages and impact on home loss and human lives, in direct contrast with the complete lack of what occured in NO)

Just me talking but... I never quite understood why it was so important for the president to be seen visiting a disaster area. It's just a photo op. What's he really gonna do while there? Grab a shovel and help clean up? No...

He can see how bad things are on a tv like the rest of us. He has people under him who coordinate the recovery.

I dunno... I'd think it's more important for FEMA to be there rather than the president.

That's another interesting observation. When Bush DID visit NO, it was deemed just a "photo op".

Ostensibly, then, when a GOP President visits a disaster area, it's bad, he doesn't care, he hates the victims, and he just wants a photo op, and when a Democratic does NOT visit a disaster area at all, it's....I guess perfectly okay?

Just confused here...

Are you aware of who REALLY dropped the ball? Or are you simply talking out of your partisan pie hole again?

For the most part I tend to agree with you. I never understood the "need" to have the sitting President go to every disaster area.

Now, 9/11 or Pearl Harbor, which were attacks from foreign enemies on US soil, that I can understand as requiring a visit from the President. But natural disasters? Without minimizing the impact that occurs with loss of lives and property during a lot of these, I don't necessarily agree that the Pres should be jumping in the plane to make a visit each time one of these occur. That is what the state's Governor should do with an acknowledging nod from the Pres from afar.

Just my

I tend to agree. But please don't let the Blind, Bush Hating, Big Willie know that, OK?
