Obama and Texas

Obama went to TX today to collect campaign cash and talk about immigration reform. However, he has denied the governor's request for federal aid for the wildfires in TX. He also declined an invitation to visit some of the areas hit by wildfire. And he didn't even mention the wildfires in his speech given in TX.

He also flew over the flooding Mississippi river area.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who spoke with reporters aboard Air Force One, was asked whether Obama had bothered to get a view from above.

“I haven’t seen him do that but I haven’t been with him for the full flight so far,” Carney said.

He seems to be a no-show for most disasters that have hit us since he's been in office. How come he is getting a pass on all this?

  • In all fairness OP......"baRACK stars" don't usually worry about things like natural disasters. There are much more important things to do like entertaining offensive rappers at the WH.

  • He does care about the disasters because he cares about nothing but his own agenda. If it isnt about him its not important thats why this country is in the toilet. What a great role model and president NOT!!!!!!!

  • No matter what obama does he will be criticized by many of you. With Governor Perry talking about secession, why should Obama give a damn? He can't win. Do you or do you not want government involvement?
