Obama declares northeast a disaster area 48 hours before the storm hits, releasing FEMA assets to the state and local governments.<quoted text>the hypocrite teabags are going to be begging for government help this week in the north...President Obama will save them again...
Ok, Democrats, here's your chance to say something you mindlessly repeated throughout Obama's tenure in the empty chair:
Everybody. All together now.
BUSH DID IT, TOO.
But, there's a difference today. When Bush declared the Gulf Coast a disaster 48 hours before Katrina hit and released all of FEMA's assets to state and local governments, it wasn't forseen that the Democrat-controlled governments in the immediate area would collapse.
Twenty four hours before the storm hit, Democrat Mayor (Chocolate City) Nagin hauled ass with everyone in the city government and the Democrat-controlled city government of New Orleans collapsed, leaving the entire population of the city without leadership.
When the storm hit, Democrat Governor (first state function as governor was to visit goddam Castro) Landry became hopelessly disorganized and the Democrat-controlled state government collapsed.
When FEMA had to coordinate with the state and local governments, there just wasn't one to coordinate with. This situation continued for more than a week after Katrina hit.
Bush was in a position where, to help the people in the disaster zones, he would have had to usurp the state and local governments. The Constitution expressly forbids this.
Fortunately, there is a Republican governor in New Jersey where the hurricane is projected to make landfall.
Republicans save us again....
