Tennessee Flood: The OTHER Obama Katrina

May 8, 2010

Barack Obama is demonstrating that he is pathologically incapable of actually leading anything beyond the politics of demagoguery and divisiveness.

I’ve written about Obama’s massive failure and culpability over the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster:

Obama Has Met His Katrina, And Couldn’t Have Screwed Up Worse

Oh Oh For Obama: BP Disaster Was HIS Project. No Blaming Bush This Time!!!

We find that Obama got more campaign money from BP than ANYONE, that it was Team Obama who approved of BP’s disastrous platform, and that Obama waited NINE DAYS before acting to deal with a growing disaster of mindbogglingly massive proportions.

Quite the Katrina Obama’s got going there.

We also can go back to Obama’s “proto-Katrina” in Haiti, where he failed to respond intelligently or coherently to the massive suffering there.

But there’s a third Katrina that you may not have heard of.  Because Obama hasn’t said a word about it:

Barack Obama has still, to my knowledge, not spoken personally of the events in Tennessee or attempted to visit — an act that would have gotten George W. Bush savagely attacked by the press, Democrats, and Congress.

MediaMatters cites the fact that Obama declared a state of emergency as being an ample response.  But for the official record, George Bush declared a state of emergency TWO DAYS BEFORE Hurricane Katrina hit

Saturday, Aug 27 2005 – 2 Days Prior

Blanco asks President Bush to declare a State of Emergency for the state of Louisiana due to Hurricane Katrina.  Bush does so, authorizing the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA “to coordinate all disaster relief efforts…” and freeing up federal money for the state.

– and still got pounded by the very slimeballs who are now defending Obama.

Bottom line: the media have utterly ignored the massive and deadly Tennessee flooding because Barry Hussein has ignored it.  Obama never used his presidential bully pulpit to attract any attention to a massive disaster.

Does Obama hate white people??? (and please do remember how Bush was demonized for hating black people over Katrina).  So as one writer put it, Obama’s response to Tennesseans has been, “Tough luck, cracker honky whitey.”

Nashville Flood 2010: The Disaster You May Not Have Heard About

A great American city is currently buried under a sea of water, but you may not know much about it given all the attention media have given to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the failed car bomb attempt in New York’s Times Square.

The rain totals are almost unimaginable as is the flooding.

Damage estimates at this point have already surpassed a billion dollars, and are likely to go higher.

Several of my readers have asked me to post the following video. I cried most of the time I watched. See if you can control your emotions better than I did (video follows with a list of some charitable organizations involved in storm relief, multiple hat-tips to readers in the area):

What is going on in Tennessee is truly heartbreaking.  It is also Obama’s “strike three” Katrina moment.
