The Red Cross has described the Louisiana floods as the worst US disaster since Hurricane Sandy [sic, Superstorm]. The housing crisis is facing Hurricane Katrina proportions.
It’s historic, epic flooding. The media is ignoring Obama’s behavior during this. Concerns about Obama’s lack of concern are almost entirely absent from media coverage of the Louisiana floods in recent days. At least 13 people have died, while at least 85,000 have registered for disaster aid.
While nowhere near as devastating as Hurricane Katrina, the floods have wrought significant destruction on the area. Meanwhile, Obama’s response has been significantly more tepid than Bush’s. He did, however, interrupt his vacation for a swanky fundraiser for Hillary on Monday.
The catastrophic flood devastating Louisiana is now the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane [sic] Sandy four years ago, the Red Cross said.
“Thousands of people in Louisiana have lost everything they own and need our help now,” said Brad Kieserman, the Red Cross’ vice president of disaster services operations and logistics.
“This disaster is the worst to hit the United States since Superstorm Sandy, and we anticipate it will cost at least $30 million — a number which may grow as we learn more about the scope and magnitude of the devastation.”
Barack Obama is vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, he didn’t even fly over as George Bush did. “People looked up from the rooftops and help was not there,” then-Senator Obama said.
Obama needs to visit the area but he won’t interrupt his vacation to do it. He has millions of tax dollars to spend.
Louisiana left without a president.
