Yahoo News did an article entitled "Obama takes charge at hurricane command center" that was singular in the tongue-bathing given to this putz for his decisive action and command presence. A sample:
Obama on Saturday chaired a meeting at the National Response Coordination Center (NRCC) set up at the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) headquarters in Washington, which is marshaling federal and local hurricane-relief efforts.Now it can be argued "better safe than sorry" and thus far, eleven deaths have been attributed to this storm. But, even as early as Saturday morning it was apparent that this Storm was winding down drastically.
"This is going to be a tough slog getting through this thing," Obama said during a video teleconference including senior federal officials and local government agencies in the east coast path of Irene.
"It's going to be a long 72 hours. Obviously a lot of families are going to be affected ... the biggest concern I'm having right now has to do with flooding and power," Obama said during the videoconference.
"(It) sounds like that's going to be an enormous strain on a lot of states" that could last days, or even longer in some cases, he said.
..oh, it did pick up some intensity when it came ashore over New Jersey and New York City, but that was probably due to the hurricane-force winds coming out of Shep and Geraldo and all of the other cable media types trying to hype this into it's former glory for the sake of ratings.
However, despite the Yahoo article's sequined knee-pad job on Obama's attempt to Out-Katrina Bush, the readers weren't buying it. The comments were almost universally cynical, acerbic, and derisive. A sample:
Thank Alla that we have a truly fearless leader who is not afraid to stand in the face of Hurricanepalooza, give a speech, and make the godless storm move away from his voting base. I wish that I could bear his child.The rest are pretty much the same; some with not as much wit but every bit as derisive of The Crapload's patently transparent effort to bolster his sagging ratings.
Well, I could ramble on some more, but I got cars to wash and lawns to mow.
