When I searched the internet for these exact words that I personally saw Obama speak on video from Fox News, do you know where I had to go to actually find them? Sources like Breitbart and Rush Limbaugh. Why??? Because the wicked, demonically hypocritical and pathologically dishonest mainstream media WILL NOT present the news fairly or honestly or accurately.
This photo of Bush was ran over and over and over again on every single mainstream media “news” site. The mainstream media made this THE image of the Bush presidency because they WANTED to make it THE image of the Bush presidency. It was the single thing that BROKE the Bush presidency, the image of a detached, distant commander-in-chief who couldn’t be bothered to land his plane but instead surveyed the damage from the remote heavens:
Calling the flyover a metaphor for Bush’s failed leadership, candidate Obama said, “People looked up at the roof tops for too long and all they saw was an empty sky.”
It is NEWS when a president so hypocritically excoriates his predecessor and then turns out to be stinking WORSE than the man he demonized.
Every single legitimate news agency will run this story into the ground day-after-day-after-day with a deafening drumbeat the same way they ran it thus against George W. Bush. The problem is that not ONE mainstream news outlet is legitimate any more. They are ALL propaganda outlets. They are ALL pathologically dishonest political ideologues spinning and twisting and distorting the news for their socialist political party and their socialist political candidates.
Let’s look at the factual historical record that you basically have to go to Breitbart or Rush Limbaugh or Drudge to actually see.
“When the people of New Orleans and Gulf Coast extended their hand for help, help was not there. When people looked up from the rooftops, for too long they saw an empty sky. When the winds blew and the flood waters came, we learned for all of our wealth and our power, something wasn’t right with America. We can talk about what happened for a few days in 2005, and we should. We can talk about levies that couldn’t hold, about a FEMA that seem not just incompetent but paralyzed and powerless, about a president who only saw the people from a window on an airplane instead of down here on the ground, trying to provide comfort and aid. We can talk about a trust that was broken, the promise that our government would be prepared, will protect us, and will respond in a catastrophe.” – Obama’s criticism of Bush on Hurricane Katrina
Bush saw the disaster “from the window of an airplane.” Obama didn’t bother to even look at it AT ALL.
How did Obama “respond in a catastrophe”??? He played more golf. He played TEN rounds of golf while Louisiana was under freaking WATER:
Now the media is suddenly agreeing with what Bush protested at the time, that if he had landed, precious, vital emergency- and first-response resources would have either been redirected or stopped by the Bush security detail as Bush came down for what the media would have demonized as a “photo op” had he come down. Because when you are a Republican, you can not win with the news. They will demonize you whether you zig or whether you zag.
In 2005, Bush had a Democrat governor who failed her state so badly she got booted from office to help demonize Bush.
But in the wave of dishonest Obama propaganda, Democrats have retaken the state, so now we have this. Look at the hypocrisy from the Democrat governor from these two stories exposed by Mediate:
Democratic Louisiana Governor Backtracks, Praises Trump For Flood Visit
Mediaite Donald TrumpDonald Trump
Sunday, 21 August 2016 (a day ago)
On Thursday night, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (D-LA) released a statement suggesting that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump‘s hastily-organized Friday visit to Baton Rouge was nothing but a photo op
The governor fed us this crap:
BATON ROUGE, La. (Reuters) – U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his running mate toured the flood-damaged city of Baton Rouge on Friday,…
Also reported by •Seattle Times •Raw Story
The governor of Louisiana said Sunday that Donald Trump’s trip to his state was helpful in getting the country’s attention on the devastating flooding around Baton Rouge.
Consider what the Democrat governor is now trying to say and read between the lines the way the mainstream media will never do:
Louisiana governor seeks donors and volunteers after floods: ‘We need help’
Many Americans are ‘just now realizing how significant’ the disaster was, says John Bel Edwards, since – unlike a hurricane – it wasn’t given a name
Sunday 21 August 2016 11.24 EDTLouisiana governor John Bel Edwards pleaded for aid for his state on Sunday, saying that after a week of devastating flooding, “we really need help.”Unlike a hurricane, Edwards told CNN on Sunday, “this rain event didn’t have a name, so we have folks around the country who I think are just now realizing how significant it was.”Days of extraordinary rainfall caused severe flooding around southern Louisiana this week, killing at least 13 people, damaging an estimated 60,000 homes and forcing thousands to the shelter of evacuation centers. More than 100,000 people had registered for federal assistance by Sunday, even as waters slowly receded and many families returned home to find furniture broken and caked in mud, walls weakened by water and early signs of mold spreading through their rooms.
“Typically by this point in a storm, I think Red Cross would be receiving a lot more donations; I think there would be more volunteers signing up,” Edwards said. “It would be very helpful for people to donate to the Red Cross, to the Baton Rouge area foundation, and also to come in and volunteer to help people get back into their homes as quickly as possible.”
In the small town of Lake Arthur, east of the Lacassine wildlife refuge, authorities barred residents from returning home as teams piled sandbags and worked pumps, struggling to keep the floodwaters out of more homes.In St Amanat, one of the worst-flooded towns of southern Louisiana, teams continued to go door to door in search of survivors and bodies on Sunday. “It’s much worse than I expected,” resident Sheila Siener told the Associated Press. “The water, the dirt, the smell. Water in the cabinets. Everything’s filthy. I’ve never been through a flood, so I really didn’t know.”About 25 miles away in Denham Springs, floods unearthed graves and damaged tombs at one of at least 15 cemeteries in the region that were affected by the rains. Resident Willie Brooks III found that his mother’s vault had vanished. “The vault was completely gone,” Brooks said. “It could be down the street. It could be in the Amite River. I don’t know.”
Do presidential tours create havoc with local resources in a disaster that are badly needed to deal with the actual emergency? WELL, IF THEY DO NOW, THEN THEY DID WHEN BUSH WAS PRESIDENT, DONTYATHINK????
But the ONE thing a presidential tour brings to a devastated area is attention, awareness and exposure.
The Democrat governor started out – because being a “Democrat” he is nothing but a DEMOn-possessed bureauCRAT cockroach politician – defending Obama for not coming and trying to demonize and slime Donald Trump for being the ONLY presidential candidate who actually showed up and said, “I CARE.”
But first he was forced to praise Donald Trump’s visit for creating the very awareness and attention that Barack Obama indifferently and without any compassion whatsoever refused to bother to create, and now that same governor is forced to try to say in a quiet, desperate way that Barack Obama horrifyingly let his state down when they needed him the most.
Democrat Governor Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin – I actually REMEMBER these names because the media made it such a giant story and made the story about Bush – both personally failed in shocking ways to do their damn jobs. Mayor Ray Nagin allowed hundreds of school buses that were under his direct authority that could have been used to save people who drowned to sit there in the flood waters unused. Blanco had so miserably misdirected funds that had been earmarked to reinforce the levies that broke.
And the same media that made that story about Bush and will NOT make this story about Obama should never be read or watched or viewed ever again.
We need Donald Trump for president on Obama’s logic: because when Obama couldn’t even be bothered to get on a damn plane because he wanted to play ten rounds of golf in Martha’s Vineyard, when Hillary Clinton was taking a long nap every other day between her screeching fundraising events, Donald Trump showed up at the disaster site and ALONE did the job of a president.
